Our Mission

Our goal is to place beautiful, healthy, well socialized puppies into the lives of families who wish to enrich their lives with a Goldendoodle. They are a joy to raise. They are smart and lots of fun! Not to mention, adorable!

Our Family

Below is a photo of our family taken at our vow renewal in September 2013.

Our puppies come with a 24 month guarantee for hips and eyes. The tests that we have done are OFA Hips, Penn Hip, Ofa Elbows, eyes, heart, thyroid, patella, vWD and SA. It has taken a lot of traveling to get all of these tests done.

Our puppies are born in the home. We give them play time during the day in our puppy play room beginning at 4 weeks of age.  
 
They are well socialized with children and adults. They are loved right from the start. 
Breeding Goldendoodles is a passion of ours and we strive to make this an enjoyable experience for the families. We keep in contact with the families before and after placement. We are here to answer any questions that families may have.
Our puppies have their first set of vaccinations at 6 weeks and are de-wormed starting at 4 weeks. Dew claws are removed. 
Our puppies come with a toy that smells like mommy and siblings, a gallon bag of puppy food, a collar, toys, microchip and a shot record and puppy advice printout. Weekly photos are taken of the puppies so the families can watch them grow. We also video the puppies before the choosing day so that the families can get a feel for their personalities before they choose.

Our Dogs

We have traveled thousands of miles to find the parents for our breeding program. We only breed the best! All of our breeding dogs are healthy and good natured dogs.  

The families reserve their puppies in the order the deposits are received. The choosing is at 6 weeks and taking home is at 8 weeks. If you cannot come in person to choose on the designated day, than we will need to know your choice or choices ahead of time so that the families after you can choose. We do create a website for each litter of puppies and you will be able to view their photos. Pictures are taken weekly.  I will also go over personalities that I have observed when you are choosing your puppy. Reserving a puppy can be done in person or through photos, videos and descriptions. We watch their personalities closely and can help families match the right puppy to them, if a family cannot be here to reserve at 6 weeks. The families get the final say over which puppy they want, from the ones available to them. If a family or, member of their family, cannot come in person to choose, they will need to bring final payment at pick up when they, or a member of their family, actually meet their puppy they reserved. 
 
We have a strict visitor policy. We do not want to expose our puppies to anything that can harm them. We only allow visitors when we have puppies available that are at least 6 weeks old, whether you have a deposit on a litter aready or not. We love our puppies and know that you would want your puppy protected from outside visitors also when you have a deposit on a litter. We have never had Parvo here and we never want to have to deal with that. If a puppy is exposed to Parvo, they can die within 24-48 hours. Parvo can be brought in on shoes and car tires. A puppy is not fully protected from Parvo until the puppy shots are completed at 16 weeks. We ask that you do not visit a pet store before coming to pick up your puppy. Dogs are allowed in pet stores and can carry Parvo into those stores, which in turn, you could bring here to our home and our puppies. We have put a lot of time, hard work and love into our puppies and guard them like our own children. We do offer a long list of references. These are families that have purchased a Goldendoodle from us and most of them have been to our home.     
 
Children need to be well supervised while visiting our home. Children are not allowed to carry the puppies. They may sit on the ground and let the puppies climb onto their laps. Please go over this rule with your children before arriving at our house. The safety of the children and puppies are a high priority to us. We want your visit to be a pleasant experience for everyone involved.   
 
When families do come to see the puppies, they are asked to remove shoes before entering the puppy play area. Parvo can be brought in on shoes and puppies love to lick the bottom of shoes. This again is for the safety of our puppies in the present and future.
 
We are State Licensed and inspected.
