Health Quality Temperament

Our goal is to provide our Cavapoo puppies with the best start in life so that they can go on to become well-loved, healthy, obedient, treasured members of their families forever.  We want our Cavapoo puppies to go on into the working professions. This includes service dog work, emotional support animals, and therapy dogs.

We do this by maintaining the highest standards in health, nutrition, temperament, socialization, and enrichment for our dogs and puppies.  We use the most up to date genetic testing to make sure our puppies are healthy.

We are an in-home kennel, but we also believe in providing a safe, clean environment for our moms and puppies.

This means each age and stage has a different environment, from the warm, quiet, safe whelping pen, to the hustle and bustle of the enriching environment for our older puppies.

We love to post lots of videos and photos of our socials. That’s the best way to get the behind the scenes look!

Scarlet the service dog Cavapoo Dog Breeding Female

Scarlet

Scarlet is our Cavapoo breeding prospect.   She is also in training for service work, so her temperment is extremely calm, pleasant, and eager to please.

She is a joy to train and is currently working towards her Trick Dog: Novice Title.

Genetic Testing:  Clear.   exception:  carries one copy of gene for DM, which means she is unaffected.  An extremely common gene to carry in Cavaliers and Poodles.  Will be bred to clear poodle male so this will not cause the condition in any puppies.

OFA: Prelims for hips and elbows excellent

Benny

Benny is our family pet! He is a medium sized Goldendoodle from Red Maple Doodles out of Vancouver.

Benny developed my passion for dogs and learning more about dog breeding and training.
