Silicon Valley Goldendoodles, started as a hobby out of a passion for the breed and has grown Into a labor of love with a strong emphasis on natural rearing. What is most important to us is to set our dogs up for a life of health and happiness. As a retired International Certified Dog Groomer, I have come to love Goldendoodles because of how brilliant these dogs are. We pride ourselves on raising quality, family-friendly dogs and service dogs that make the best, and fluffiest, companions. From my home to yours, these dogs are given the highest quality of care and love so they can truly thrive.

Our Breeding Program exists to raise puppies to be trained as Service Dogs to assist the disabled. We can usually determine which dogs won’t make it all the way through training. Puppies that would be uncomfortable with the many varying settings in public are rehomed as family pets. We have a very high rate of success with the dogs in our program making it as service dogs and family pets. This is a result of the excellent breeding behind our dogs – we produce highly trainable dogs with calm and loving temperaments, intelligence and good health.
The dogs in my breeding program are the best, and they are treated as such! They are not left in kennels. We keep all moms in guardian homes only breeding them twice and work with 2 different local families to keep our males.We take an active role in the health and training of our breeding dogs, they are loved and a part of our family. This ensures that each dog gets the individual attention that they need and deserve.
