Hello, my name is Heather, and I will be your main contact when finding a new furry family member from Doodle Mountain!
My husband John and I have two boys and we all take joy in raising each puppy with love in our home, one litter at a time.
I love my dogs and the joy they bring. My family is dedicated to breeding the sweetest and healthiest bernedoodle babies.
My boys love the puppies and give them tons of affection. The puppies will be familiar with children and household noises... it is impossible to have boys without noise!
John is my husband, and he helps me with all the day-to-day chores and activities with the puppies in addition to being a landscape designer. Most people meet him on delivery day as he is a better driver than me!
I am committed to providing well-rounded and easily trainable pups. We provide visual, auditory and tactile stimulation for our puppies. they are raised in our home and played with regularly.
I utilize the following enrichment methods:
Crate training, puppies are introduced at 6 weeks old and just given treats in the crate we work with them daily and by 8 weeks old they are taking naps in the crate by 9-10 weeks old they are sleeping in crate overnight.
Toys, our puppies are given a variety of toys to play with, but we do not play tugging or pulling games with our puppies. Your puppy will be sent home with one of their favorite types of toy!
Grooming Desensitization, puppies have nails done every 7-10 days with clippers and or nail grinder depending on age, they have a bath about every 1-2 weeks and prior to rehoming day. Sound Stimulation, they are familiar with the regular household sounds, kids yelling, running, blenders, vacuums and other dogs barking! These puppies are prepared for just about any household noise levels
Socialization, all our puppies get to play with adult dogs and play with children frequently. My boys carry the puppies, play games and watch tv with our puppies. They are well loved and familiar with being part of a family. In addition, we normally have friends and family that stop by to play with puppies whenever they get a chance!
Potty Training, we begin potty training along with crate training & believe the two go hand in hand, they are trained on hay (straw) and taken outside. We also use puppy pads in the specific room we are in.
Harness Training, we introduce the harness and encourage the puppies to follow with treats. Some puppies take to this quicker than others!
We also expose them to different floor surfaces and textures. My hope is that we can give you and your puppy the best start possible. Just remember that every puppy takes love and patience.
We follow the appropriate puppy health protocols and follow our vet recommendations. Adult parent dogs have been genetically tested, and I am always willing to share the results. Lucky and Journey have OFA clearance on hips and elbows.
In our program we devote our time, energy, and efforts to each litter to ensure our puppies are properly socialized from the moment they are born and prepared to excel in their forever homes. We care about the well-being of our dogs and do everything in our power to breed sound and happy pups. Our puppies’ health and ability to thrive are our main priorities.
Best of all, I ensure the best transition possible and update you frequently with pictures!
Hope to speak with you soon,
