Because your puppy is a Bordoodle it is not AKC registered. However on thing that sets us apart from other doodle breeders is that all of our pure breeds, Border Collie, Poodle Etc. are AKC registered which allows us to participate with UABR United All Breed Registry. Which provides your Bordoodle with a puppy registration form and a pedigree. How Long does it take to house train a Bordoode? We work with them from 6 to 8 weeks of age going out the dog door. At 8 weeks they usually have it figured out. Even if you don't have a dog door at home this process helps establish that your puppy needs to go outside to potty. When you take your puppy home we recommend crate training. Bordoodles are highly intelligent and my opinion one of the easiest doodles to house train. They could have it down as early as one week some may take longer.
