My philosophy regarding breeding is to find the healthiest and happiest dog ‘parents’ and raise equally healthy and happy goldendoodle puppies in a family environment.
I research all of my Moms and Dads thoroughly to ensure genetically strong bloodlines. They should have even and attentive character traits with loving, friendly and well balanced personalities. Most of them were raised here, in my home, from the time they were eight weeks old. Any puppy not displaying the right personality is spayed or neutered and adopted by a loving family. Every dog has their hips, elbows, and eyes tested. Any serious abnormality is not acceptable and the dog is spayed or neutered and adopted by a loving family.
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole."
My dogs and puppies are my pets living in my home all the time where we share our lives together. They are socialized with my family members, the neighborhood children who love to come over to play with them. I know I have the better part of the arrangement because being with them fills my heart with joy.
I fell in love with doodles long before I started breeding and knew that somewhere down the road I wanted to be a part of the process.
Sixteen years ago I started breeding F1 goldendoodles from my beautiful Bella and Piper, two golden retrievers. I spent the next two years enjoying watching them grow up and also used the time to get them fully tested...eyes, hips and knees. I used a standard size poodle stud that belonged to a breeder not far from me.
My Bella and Piper together gave me five wonderful litters. Their pups were awesome with remarkable temperaments, size and coats. I am still in touch with many of my loving families. To date, they are all very healthy.
Then my husband contracted cancer and I decided to give up breeding in order to devote my time to him. He passed away in May of 2009.
I am now back doing what I love….raising doodles.
