Our mission is to produce the best, healthiest possible dogs for companions, therapy, service or competition and to raise them as naturally as possible. We strive to have a positive impact on the environment, to practice anti-racism and anti-oppression, and to promote social justice in our business and personal lives.
Our dogs live with us on 35 acres near Acadia National Park. Our dogs hike, swim, run through the woods and love to hang out in the house with us. We feed premium foods and treats exclusively from PawTree, Life's Abundance, and TLC. Their supplements are from NuVet. Please let us know if you'd like information about any of these product lines.
We raise our puppies using the Avidog and Puppy Culture protocols with some adaptations based on our experience and new research. Megan has recently completed the Good Dog Savvy Socialization Course. Our puppies are socialized, and started on house, crate and clicker training when they go to their new homes.
To minimize our impact on the planet, we compost, re-use and re-cycle. We avoid plastics (but some dog toys are a necessity). We compost waste and use cloth instead of paper whenever possible. We proudly support the following organizations:
Our parent dogs have all of the hip, elbow, eye, heart, thyroid, and DNA clearances recommended for their breeds.
Parents are evaluated and paired to produce puppies with the best temperament, health, intelligence, confidence, style and beauty.
We are proud to be Red-Ribbon level members of the Goldendoodle Association of North America (GANA). We adhere to their stringent health-testing requirements and code of ethics. We are working toward qualifying for GANA's Blue-Ribbon level and many of our parent dogs and litters already meet the blue-ribbon criteria.
Each of our puppies is handled daily starting at birth, and receives ENS treatments from the third through the sixteenth day of life. The result is an increased capacity that positively affects the dog for life and includes:
An extremely wide range of people/families provide excellent homes for puppies and dogs.
Therefore, we will NOT discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, or familial status.
We are dedicated to finding loving, responsible homes for our puppies.
Our puppies are litter-box trained early. We start the process when they are 2 weeks old! They learn to use a dog door reliably at 4 - 6 weeks of age. By the time they go home, they are using the litter box, and/or outside area reliably. All you need to do is get them used to YOUR home/yard/dog-door, stick to a schedule, and watch them closely!!
You don't have time to stay up-to-date on every new development in the canine world. So, we do it for you. You can call and ask about any issue that comes up during the life of your dog.
The web & blog site, Midwoofery, is full of expert and scientific information related to breeding, whelping, and dog care.
We are passionate about safe, premium nutrition for our own dogs because of the HUGE effect it has on our breeding program, and the general health of our dogs. We share our recommendations with you and extend our health warranty from 24 months to 36 MONTHS if you follow our recommendations.
If you don't have time to call or email, you can ALWAYS feel safe ordering from our food site:
This class on socializing puppies covers everything from birth to 12 weeks of age. It explains what to do as well as the science behind why.
We learned how to prevent puppy parasites starting with treating the dams 3 weeks prior to whelping. We added the comprehensive protocol for puppies age 2-9 weeks as well as learning to do our own fecal tests.
We have learned a tremendous amount from Avidog. Megan has taken the Temperament Evaluation course and the Stud Dog Management course. We really appreciate their scientific approach to all things dog. We also like their shop - the Adventure Box is a favorite with our puppies!

OUR GUIDING PHILOSOPHY
Our priority is finding the best family for each puppy,
and the best puppy for each family.
YOUR PROCESS (STEPS)
1) Sign up for our mailing list (above!)
2) Wait for an email about available puppies (with application)
3) Submit the application
3) If approved, you will either be
A) contacted to place a deposit on a puppy, or
B) notified that you are now on the approved list
OUR UNIQUE METHOD
Our process is based on our philosophy of finding the best matches, not on a timeline or the order of sign-up.
OUR PROCESS (STEPS)
1) We keep one pool of approved families and one mailing list (families waiting to apply).
2) When our puppies are 2-3 weeks old, we email the pool of approved families, asking who wants to reserve a puppy.
3) When there are more requests than puppies, we select the homes best matched to the particular litter. The other families remain on the approved list. This does not mean they are guaranteed to get a puppy from the next available litter!
4) When there are more puppies than requests, we open the application and email a link to the mailing list.
5) We review the new applications, and select families for the remaining puppies. After all puppies are reserved, the remaining approved applicants are moved to the pool of approved families.
