Doodles of the Valley -


Just a little about me:  I'm Cathy, a retired empty-nest mom.  My husband travels for business and is gone a lot.  I have one adorable grandson who loves to come and socialize puppies.  My adult daughter lives with us as she's going to school for her RN.  She helps with puppies and gets lots of puppy kisses.  

 I don't own dogs to "run a business". They don't live in a kennel. Even though I've now moved to a beautiful "hobby farm" in Larsen, WI, these puppies are still raised in my home.  They are members of my family. I share my life with them and they are my furry little "children". I give my dogs the best care socially, medically, nutritionally, and, in turn, they reward me with all the joys of unconditional love only a beloved dog can give.

I'd like to say that breeding these wonderful dogs is my "hobby".  I'm very passionate about these puppies.  Do you agree that most people are much more passionate about their "hobbies" than their "jobs"?  When this becomes a "job" to me, is when I'll be done breeding.  At this time, it is only getting better and I learn more and more with every puppy I raise.  

I have three doodle moms that live with me.  Fergie (retired) f1 goldendoodle, Gretchen, (retired)  parti Australian Labradoodle , and Millie, my beautiful tri-colored Australian Labradoodle. and I also have Ollie, my ALD parti boy that will be father to many of my future Australian Labradoodles in fall of 2015.  
These four dogs have a beautiful "hobby farm" with acres of land to run and play.  They are very lucky, lucky doodles.

Because I want all my dogs to get the attention and time they so deserve, I do have dogs in "guardian homes".  These homes take great care of my dogs.  This enables all dogs to be part of a family, never using a kennel.  All these guardian dogs will be with these families for their entire life, long after their breeding career is over.  If your interested in being a guardian family for one of my wonderful girls, contact me for more information.


I have trained both, Fergie and Lucy (retired) and Gretchen (ALD) in agility and service, including both of them having their Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog Int’l certifications. 
 
I utilize the English Cream Retriever in my breeding program.  Breeding this cross produced a stockier, broader headed dog with unique wavy low mat, low shed coat.  I also now have introduced the Multi-generation Australian Labradoodle.  Both the English Goldendoodle and the Australian Labradoodle produce great service and family dogs. 

I feel both Goldendoodles and Australian Labradoodles, with their low-to-no shed coats and their wonderful temperaments, are the best dog available for family pets.  I believe in making these affordable to the average family.  Click:  Pricing
