TOP TEN QUESTIONS ASKED ABOUT THE DOODLE ZOO 

1. Who can post at the Zoo?

Anyone who loves Doodles, or wants to learn more about them! We are a group of Doodle (Labradoodle, Goldendoodle, Weimerdoodle, Aussiedoodle, Schnoodle, really any poodle hybrid!) owners, breeders and afficianados.

2. So..... breeders can post?

Yes, there are no restrictions as to who can post, as long as communications remain courteous.

3. Can I post links to other sites here?

Sure! We all hope to learn from one another, so if you have a site that you think is good, please share it!

4. Can I post pictures of my dogs?

Please do! We love pictures. Picture posting instructions are found in a link at the bottom of this page, at Ann's Doodle Chat.

5. Is it OK to ask for opinions on a breeder I am considering getting a puppy from?

Yes, sharing information is a goal here. Be aware that you may get a variety of opinions, and no matter what information you receive, it is your responsibility to do your due diligence and thoroughly research before making any purchase.

6. I am a breeder, can I post availability in my litters?

Sure, but please limit it to about once a week. There is only so much room on the chat, and we want to leave plenty of room for people to....CHAT!

7. Can I post about non-doodle topics too?

People often do that. Our main focus is our dogs, but we are also a community, and we do share other topics of interest as well. Please add "OT" to the beginning of your subject line when making an "off topic" (non-doodle) post.

8. Is this forum moderated?

Yes it is. There is a dedicated team of Zookeepers who monitor and moderate it.  Want to meet the Zookeepers?  Or if you have any questions or concerns please contact us at: Zookeepers@thedoodlezoo.com.

9. Do the moderators censor or delete posts?

Almost never. If a post is obscene or libelous, or makes a physical threat against someone, it may be removed, but our community is a very courteous one, and this hardly ever happens. If a situation arises where one Zookeeper thinks a post needs to be removed, it is reviewed by all Zookeepers and a consensus decision about it is reached.

10. So it seems there aren't many rules or restrictions. Is there anything else I need to know?

Please be kind. While we all love doodles, we are a diverse community, with many backgrounds and differing opinions. As with any community, disagreements may arise. Please carefully consider words before you post them, and phrase all comments as though they are addressed to someone you care for.That's how we care for each other!

So there you have it, our community in a nutshell.

This song, written by poster 'dmc and Fizz',  sums us up in a different way: 

Doodle Zoo Song (to the tune of "Downtown")

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go - Doodle Zoo
When you've got worries, all the friends and the furries
Seems to help, I know - Doodle Zoo
Just imagine all the laughter with friends on the 'net
Linger on the forum where the pictures are set
How can you lose?


The attitudes are much lighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go Doodle Zoo, things'll be great when you're
Doodle Zoo - no finer place, for sure
Doodle Zoo - everyone's waiting for you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
For there are puppy toes - Doodle Zoo
Now you know a little cyber space to go to
Where they never close - Doodle Zoo
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be posting with us too before the night is over
Happy again

The attitudes are much lighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go Doodle Zoo, where there's chat on the site
Doodle Zoo - waiting for you tonight
Doodle Zoo - you're gonna be all right now

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go Doodle Zoo, things'll be great when you're
Doodle Zoo - don't wait a minute more
Doodle Zoo - everything's waiting for you
