|Feel free to call me
anytime with any questions!
and welcome to the GoldenBelle Doodles website. We are a
family of dog lovers living on the outskirts of the lovely
town of Lucknow Ontario. We have a small hobby farm, which
includes a hobby kennel with over 10 acres of fenced in
property for our dogs to play on. Our dogs have provided us
with tons of love, companionship, and joy over the years and
we would like to share that joy with you. We have done
extensive research into the world of dogs and breeding, and
have had many years of hands on experience. This gives us
the knowledge we need to provide you with a happy, healthy,
well socialized best friend. We have selected our breeding
stock with the greatest care, and have had them tested for
genetic diseases including their hips. The pups are vet checked,
vaccinated, dewormed and come with a written four year
health guarantee. We stand behind our pups 100% and are
available day or night through out your pups development to
answer any questions or address any concerns you might have.
With proper nutrition, veterinary care, training, and of
course T.L.C. you will have a great companion for many years
to come. Buying from a reputable, established, experienced
breeder will make a big
difference on the lifespan of you puppy.
All our pups are raised in the
home without any harsh chemicals to damage developing cells
or cause problems down the road, rest assured that your
puppy is being raised around natural cleaning products that
are safe for both pets and humans as well as our
Puppies are also raised on a natural
dog food to get the best possible start in life .
We do not use pesticides on your puppy, we protect them from
external parasites with only non-toxic products.
We wanted to choose a breed that was a sound, even tempered, intelligent, gentle dog. We have 6 children and wanted a dog we could trust around the kids. After extensive research, we decided on the Golden Retriever and have never regretted that choice. The kids are now grown and most of them are on their own with families of their own, so we can dedicate even more time to raising the dogs.
After doing some research on healthy breeds, I found that the Goldendoodle is a sound dog that has no or little genetic defects because of it’s large gene pool as there is no inbreeding or line breeding. The Goldendoodle is a highly intelligent, little to non-shedding, non-allergenic dog that has been used as a Seeing Eye dog for the blind with allergies. I have now added the Doubledoodle ( North American Retriever) and the Australian Labradoodle to my breeding program since they are also a much healthier breed of dog then the purebred dogs. These breeds pick up the good traits from both parents, they are easily trained, and they have a very sweet natured disposition. I also breed the smaller version, petites & minis and find them to be just as healthy and intelligent as the standard size.
We have been breeding dogs for about 30 years, our first litter of Goldendoodles will be turning 16yrs. old this spring. We keep in touch with our puppy owners and make ourselves available for questions. Should a puppy ever need to be returned for what ever reason we would take the pup back, if a pup should ever have to be returned for health reasons we would give you the choice of either a new pup or a full refund. If your pup is diagnosed with a hereditary disease and you wanted to keep your pup then we would simply give you a new pup when you were ready for one. We don't believe in trading your beloved pet in for another one unless it's what you want.
A bit about our breeding program
Some of our breeding girls and boys are housed in our kennel in large clean spacious runs that allow them to move around freely without the confined feeling of a crate. We have a large outdoor fenced in exercise yard they play in everyday, our dogs are loved, well cared for, played with by our kids and grandkids, eat only the best human grade organic meats bought from the butcher or TLC dog food and are seen by the vet on a regular basis. We chose to raise our breeding dogs in a kennel rather then the house for a number of reasons, the most important one being their own safety, also this way we control who breeds who and have planned breeding not oops breedings. A dog in the human world only knows what it is taught, if you raise a dog in a family environment and then move it to a kennel it will miss its living arrangements so for this reason any adult dog I purchase that was raised in a house remains in the house with our family, if you raise a dog in a kennel then move it to the house it will miss the kennel and wont feel comfortable in a house, sure a dog will get used to living with a family in their home once its spayed or neutered and retired but my point is that dogs are happy wherever they are raised as long as its done with love and care and of course good food.
I had mentioned the dogs safety as being one of the reasons we choose to kennel our breeding dogs, if they were allowed to run as a pack in our home there would be numerous injuries even fights to the death with dogs trying to establish their pecking order, keep in mind these dogs have all their parts which means they have all their hormones in working order, females don’t see another dog in heat as a play mate they see her as an enemy that needs to be taken out of the breeding pool because shes not as alpha as she is, for more info click below:
http://www.dogchannel.com/dog-information/dog-trainer-morn/female-dogs-fight-constantly.aspx males will fight to the death over a female in heat, Males fight for breeding dominance and yes, alpha position. http://en.allexperts.com/q/Ask-Veterinarian-700/2009/2/Male-dogs-fighting-1.htm
The other important reason our dogs are kenneled is that we can control who gets bred and when they get bred, if a female comes into heat and for some reason we don’t think it’s a good time for her to get bred we can choose to skip this heat and wait for the next, if the dogs were running loose in the house she could get bred by one male in the morning and the other in the evening, I have seen males break threw walls to get to a female in heat, we would not know who daddy is and that wouldn’t be fair to you either. An intact male could rape a female that's not in heat and could cause damage to her.
I do not work outside the home so I devote all my time to their nurturing, training and grooming. Mom actually likes giving birth in the privacy of the maternity room with no distractions and nothing to cause her anxiety or fear.
I am available 24/7 to address any questions or concerns that you have, being able to contact the breeder is especially important in the first few weeks after the puppies leave for their new homes, only the breeder knows your puppy the best at this point and can offer support and peace of mind. I am more then happy to discuss any behavior problem or give training tips at any time of your dogs life, so please take advantage of this since it could save you hundreds of dollars, some trainers charge $60. an hour for a phone consultation, I offer this service free to any of my puppies families. If for any reason you have to return your doodle at any age I will take the dog back no questions asked, this way we can both make sure your pet gets a good approved home. If I rehome the dog and receive an adoption fee the money goes directly to you and you can decide what to do with it, I can recommend some worthy dog rescues that could use some help if you like. If you have any questions or concerns please call or e-mail me.
What happens after my Goldendoodle puppy is born?
Once mom has given birth the puppies, moms are seen by the vet to make sure everything is okay. The next four weeks are not to eventful, mom does most of the work and I handle each puppy at least once a day, I weigh the pup and give it a once over and pet it a bit so that it gets the best start at socialization. I deworm the puppies every two weeks with Strongid T staring at 2 weeks old. By 4 weeks old the puppies’ immune system is strong enough to start socialization by other family members including my grandkids. Mom usually starts to wean her babies at this age so I introduce water soaked TLC dog food, Mom stops cleaning up puppies at this point so I take over keeping them clean and dry. This is the time that I start to puppy pad train them, they do great at keeping their sleeping and eating area clean. The puppies are slowly weaned over the next two weeks so that by the time they receive their first shots at 6 weeks old they are pretty much only eating TLC dog food and drinking water, Moms antibodies will fight the vaccine so I revaccinate the puppies at 8 weeks old and they will need a booster 4 weeks after that along with the rabies shot. I will accept visits after the pups get their first shot but your puppy will only be handled by myself, my family, the vet and you, so if someone else comes to see the puppies yours will be kept in a bio secure area. At 6 wks old I start to crate and house train, puppies are puppy pad trained during the worst part of winter and outside training is done during the warmer months. Simple commands like sit, come, off, no bite are introduced. You can order the food we feed our doodles and highly recommend, online.
