Here at The Doodle Cove, all of our puppies are raised in our home, where they are loved on daily and played with by our children and our other dogs. My oldest daughter Makenna is my biggest help in all that we do here! My youngest daughter Emma, is the best puppy-snuggler! Finnley, my son, keeps the older girls warm at night as they are his favorite to snuggle. He also loves participating in new curriculum with puppies as they grow! All of our adult dogs live in our home or the home of a guardian family where they are loved members of the family.
Our program starts with our parent dogs and ensures that we are honoring them, their health, and their well-being first and foremost. Every puppy born into our hands is a miracle. They are born and raised in the middle of our home and are very much a part of our family and everyday life! We are responsible for teaching each one of them that the world is a good and safe place and matching them with a family where they will continue to thrive and change hearts!
The health and temperaments of our dogs and their puppies is our number one priority. Our dogs have been cleared of all genetic conditions via DNA testing with Embark and Animal Genetics. They also have been certified by Pennhip and OFA for optimal hip, heart, patella, and eye dispositions. Any prospects we consider for our program undergo temperament testing. These are extensive tests that ensure our dogs will pass the very best traits down to their offspring.
We are blue ribbon members of the Goldendoodle Association of North America (GANA), which means that our health testing meets their strictest health testing standards as well as our program following their code of ethics!
We are also in the process of becoming members of the Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association (WALA) in order to show that we meet their strict health standards with our new australian labradoodle line!
*Membership with WALA is currently pending
