PUPPY RAISING PHILOSOPHY
Our puppies are born in the heart of the home where, from day one, they are handled daily. They spend their first
formative weeks acclimating to the hustle of a noisy family. When they are a bit older, they can step outside in the fenced
area for a short time, and light housebreaking begins. No matter what any breeder claims, it is impossible to FULLY
housebreak a puppy until it is old enough to have full bladder control(about 3 mths.), but we can give them a sense of
what is expected of them! We also will begin teaching your puppy its name, if you have chosen one. We're often told
that our puppies are fast learners and we attribute this to good genes, early socialization, and the specialized
neurological stimulation techniques we use(see PUPPY page).
WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU
Doodle Dandy offers You QUALITY at competitive prices. A bargain puppy or a puppy purchased from a pet store, puppy
mill, or puppy broker may soon end up costing you way more than you bargained for....in vet bills, heartache, and
headaches! We offer our two-year genetic health guarantee with confidence.
When you think you are ready to make a lifelong commitment to one of our babies, please check the PUPPIES page for
more information, photos of available puppies, and our Puppy Application.

|WHO WE ARE
Welcome to Doodle Dandy Goldendoodles, located near Mystic,
Connecticut and the Rhode Island state line. Our founder, Linda, began
training, grooming, and showing purebred dogs (shelties) with her aunt
as a teen ager over 50 years ago. She formerly bred miniature poodles,
graduated from Connecticut K-9 in Newington, CT, eventually opening
her own grooming shop. It was in that career that her passion for
goldendoodles began... Today she partners closely with a small team of
other breeder friends who share the same passion and values. All have
been involved previously in the dog world, either breeding, grooming,
or rescuing dogs.
OUR BREEDING PHILOSOPHY
We believe that quality produces quality. Therefore, we carefully select
breeding dogs that fit our criteria:
(1)Intelligent, (2) Even Tempered, (3)Balanced, (4)Genetically Sound.
We believe in health testing our dogs before they are bred.
We do not believe dogs should live their lives in a kennel and we
purposefully keep a SMALL POPULATION so the dogs can comfortably
share our homes as members of our family. We retire our females at
around 5 years old, so they can enjoy a long, relaxing retirement with a
family of our choice.
