How We Got Started
Sophie was our Golden Retriever. She was an amazing dog from champion lines. She was beautiful, smart and excellent with children. We met a Goldendoodle in the park one day in 2006 (before anyone knew what a goldendoodle was) and could not believe how cute he was. When his owner told us that he was a golden retriever bred to a poodle, we knew a goldendoodle would be our next dog. Our male golden retriever passed away that year and we decided to breed Sophie to our friend’s 85 pound royale poodle. We knew the offspring would be so awesome and the non-shedding was a plus. After placing that litter, we kept receiving requests for more litters and went from one litter per year to ten over the next ten years.
Goldendoodles are easily adaptable and can be just as happy running across farm acreage as they would be in a local family home.
We take great pride in the quality of our dogs and promote a strong Goldendoodle community. Cyndi, the owner, quit her job as a CPA a couple years ago for the more rewarding job of staying home with puppies. Socializing and training puppies prior to them going home is a full time job; however, you can see Cyndi’s professionalism in everything she does.
Golden Retriever vs. Goldendoodle
We have owned both Golden Retrievers and Standard Poodles and we truly believe Goldendoodles enhance both breeds. However, this is only when the lines are carefully selected by an experienced breeder. We love the intelligence of the Standard Poodle, however a Poodle’s upkeep far exceeds that of the Goldendoodle. With all our history, we have yet to experience a two year “puppy phase” in any of our Goldendoodles as is common with Golden Retrievers.
