Josh and I first met back in 2000. After becoming engaged in 2006, we began raising our first Goldendoodles. Growing up, we both had wonderful Golden Retrievers but when we met our first Goldendoodle in 2005, we fell in love with the breed. We just couldn't get over their eagerness to please and devout loyalty to their family just like our Golden Retrievers but they didn't shed and had even higher intellegence for easier training. Plus many of the Golden Retriever and Poodle's health problems were reduced. Now, we are even more in awe of these wonderful dogs.


We have just a few litters of Goldendoodles a year and we raise very high quality, healthy puppies. Almost all of our puppies' parents come from American champion or 100% imported English bloodlines. We are very careful to provide with you a very healthy family member and do specific health clearances. Almost all of them are now OFA certified and we are in the process of doing the CERF testing as well. Please ask which health clearances your puppy's parents have had. We try to have rare colors available along with everyone's favorites and breed to get the beautiful stockier build.


We believe that raising a healthy puppy begins well before it enters the world. We provide our momma's with excellent prenatal care. They are all given high quality food and supplements during the entire pregnancy until after the puppies have been weaned. We also work closely with our vet to ensure they receive excellent care. We don't cut any corners when it comes to our puppies' health. During and after the weaning process, the puppies go straight to Royal Canin puppy food. We have spent many years researching dog food and it is hands down the best we've ever found. It's not cheap, but well worth it.


All of our puppies are raised in a clean, loving environment and spend lots of time interacting with us and our children. Our cat, Charlie, does his part, too. You may see him in one of your puppy's pictures now and then! We start working with the puppies from the day they're born and start teaching them good house manners around their seven week birthday.


We believe that a puppy's best time for bonding with their new family is between 8 and 12 weeks of age. For that reason we allow our puppies to go home at 8 weeks old. We strongly encourage you to attend puppy training classes with your new little one and later on we recommend that you attend at least one more advanced class. We do our best to give you a socialized, well-rounded puppy but that training must continue long after they go home. We are happy to provide you with information on helping your puppy become an AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy. Training goes far beyond "fetch" and "roll-over" but teaches you to communicate with each other. That is the only way to truly enjoy a wonderful, well-mannered family member.


We know that choosing a puppy is a huge decision and that puppy will be with you for many years. We really want you to get to know the puppy as best you can through many, many questions, pictures, or maybe even a short video. Thank you for choosing us. We think you'll be very happy and we are very excited to share this special time with you!
