Having owned over 15 pets throughout my life, I've experienced the bond between human and animal. Growing up, I've had birds, cats, dogs and even chickens. As a parent, I wanted my children to enjoy companionship from a dog and we've had dogs ranging from 7 to 100 pounds and purebred to rescue and hybrid. I’ve always had a passion for caring for dogs. But for many years, we only had one small dog due to frequent travels with our military service.
Luna, our 14-yr-old Maltese, has traveled with us and seen our children grow and leave the nest, with our most recent high school graduate leaving for college to become a Veterinarian. Luna has been our emotional support through stressful times such as deployments, loss of a family member, lengthy separations, and post traumatic stress. Knowing first-hand how a pet can soothe a soul, I wanted to breed dogs who can heal other people’s hearts.
Why breed Goldendoodles? Our goal is to not only produce healthy, good tempered dogs as pets but also as service and therapy dogs. In the future, we hope to donate puppies to families needing a service dog. With our own allergies, Goldendoodles were an easy choice. They are a perfect mix of the friendly, obedient Golden Retriever and intelligent, non-shedding Poodle.
After over 24 yrs of service, I retired from the Army and started to educate myself on the breed until we finally had our first Goldendoodle, Harley, who loves to cuddle and play. Shortly after, an opportunity appeared from the grace of God to get our third pet and first breeding dog, Meli. She was first pick of the litter and heaven sent. Meli is therapeutic with the best temperament and a natural leader. She wouldn’t hurt a fly, yet you feel protected in her presence.
We are confident Meli and our breeding program will produce quality dogs. We respect and love Meli, and will do the same for her puppies in our care. I am dedicated to continue learning in order to raise puppies in a safe and clean environment, and teach them using a curriculum that will develop them into intelligent and confident dogs.
