Your puppy’s life journey from our little farm to your ready home makes all the difference. From the day of your puppy’s birth on our farm up until the day your new furry friend leaves to start his or her new life with you, we strive to provide a great environment for the pup. Our activities are centered around the three-fold goal of providing you with a puppy that is healthy, smart, and happy. Many wagging tails and happy families later, we can tell you that our program truly works!
For our breedings, we start with dogs that descend from very healthy lines. Our well-behaved AKC/CKC registered females are paired with equally well-mannered AKC/CKC miniature/toy poodle males. This selection process has consistently provided healthy and robust puppies to many forever families. Over the years, we have yet to produce a single genetically defective puppy. Our program is so solid that a local veterinarian selected one of our pups to give to his own mother!
When you pair the brains of a well-bred labrador with the intelligence of a poodle, you get puppies who's learning abilities will truly amaze. We build upon this great genetic base by providing each puppy with Early Neurological Stimulation. Inspired by an early military "super-dog" program, ENS provides:
Adoptive families continually tell us how amazed they are with our puppies. By the time you meet your new puppy, he or she has been exposed to many different people and many different situations. These pups are the hit of our rural neighborhood. We have an open door policy with all of our neighborhood children and welcome frequent puppy visits and play time. Our farm-like setting provides your puppy with sights, sounds and textures that all lead the pup to a comfortable confidence. That confidence translates into real-world social skills around both people and other canines. ( It warms our hearts to see all of these little wagging tails! )
I had been looking for a Mini Labradoodle for a while when my sister stumbled on John’s ad. I was in California and they were in Utah. John made the process seamless. He was available for a phone conversation to ensure I was a fit for his puppies and provided plenty of photos and information about his pups. He welcomed my sister and brother-in-law into his home to interact with the puppies to ensure we chose the puppy that was the best fit for me. We were able to video chat so that I could get a good feel for each puppy before making a decision. There was no pressure to hurry my selection which I really appreciated. John was upfront about the cost and there were no hidden costs. My new addition did not disappoint! John ensured she had the necessary shots before my puppy even left his place. He also provided me with all of the documentation I needed to give to my vet on our first visit.
I named my little girl Turbo and she has been the joy in my life since bringing her home in May of this year. She made the 12 hour drive home to California with no issues at all. Turbo is a healthy and great natured puppy. She did not have any puppy health issues. She was the picture of health and so pretty. Since I have had Turbo, she has socialized very well and has been the perfect little girl (besides the normal puppy behavior, of course). Turbo is very smart, has a beautiful coat that sheds a little, is very energetic, but well-behaved.
John was great to work with and has always taken an interest in Turbo’s progress over the months. John is committed to providing families with a new member of the family and not just breeding dogs for profit. I made the right choice by waiting for the puppy and breeder that was right for me. You will not be disappointed trusting John with your next family member.
Our puppy, named Moku, lived true to your recommendation as the chillest puppy of the litter. He is super mellow and very sweet. We know we’re partial, but we also think he is so smart! He can do over a dozen tricks—including our personal favorite: “The Mokey Pokey” (sort of like the Hokey Pokey, but better!). I’ve spent a lot of time training him—half a lifetime, actually. But it’s been so rewarding for me! I’d like to have him go through a service dog training of some sort because he has such a gentle and obedient personality... I wouldn’t say he is snuggly or cuddly as much as he just enjoys being in the company of his people. Sometimes he will come and place his chin on our leg, if we’re sitting down, so that we can pet his head. Honestly, we are all so attached to our dog and feel so thankful to have met you and your wife last year! This is our first family dog and he has just been the very best, most lovable, trainable, sweet puppy.
We named our pup Wrigley (I’m a Chicago Cubs fan). He is the best dog ever! He really has become part of our family and we think of him as one of our kids. He is so good with people, loves to snuggle and is incredibly smart.
He weighs about 35 pounds and stands about 19 inches at the shoulder.
He went through the puppy phase of chewing everything...but that has gotten much better.
