Featuring Scarlet the Service Dog and Benny, too!

Friday night puppy playtime with our doodle dogs! Scarlet is an 8 month old Cavapoo service dog in training.  Benny is a 3 year old Goldendoodle.  You can also see Lex, our 2 year old daughter, on the swings in the background.  We are so lucky to be able to run Sleeping Bear Kennels at home.  While we have “Kennel” in our name, we are an in home breeder.

We are also lucky to have a walking trail nearby our house, so our daily exercise includes lots of walks as well. Playtime with other dogs and pack walks are important for all dogs, puppy or adult. We love having that time with them.  Working from home has it’s challenges, but being with the dogs is not one of them!


When you are too busy for playtime, I recommend these benebones.  Dogs love them because the curved shaped allows them to grip them with their paws. We love them because the risk of hazards with these bones are quite low.

We love playing with our dogs in the backyard, and I hope you enjoy this cute little video. Next week I’ll make a special puppy playtime featuring our Australian Cattle Dog puppy friends, Chia and Olive, so keep an eye out for that!
