Why Choose a Puppy from Doodles on the Ridge?
There are lots of other kennels and “Doodle” breeders out there. Some are great; some not so much. Some are huge; some are small. We’re sure that you could have a great adoption experience with many of them. But why should you choose Doodles on the Ridge over another breeder? Here are a few reasons:
Our dogs are part of our family. We have invested our lives into the well-being of each and every one of our dogs. They are an integral part of our lives, and each one was chosen specifically to be a member of our family. Every day they are loved, nurtured and cared for, just like any other member of our family. The parents of all our puppies are always on site, so you can meet them both.
We have several decades of experience in raising healthy, well-bred puppies that bring years of happiness to hundreds of families. That experience helps us find the right puppy … uniquely chosen for your family. We are happy to answer questions about the various breeds so you’ll feel comfortable adopting the puppy that fits perfectly with your needs and traits. We always want you to be happy with your puppy so he or she becomes an adored member of your family.
This is perhaps the most important thing about Doodles on the Ridge because what we believe in drives everything that we do. And at the heart of everything we do is doing what’s best for our dogs and our puppies. Afterall, they are our children. We will never do anything that would be unhealthy or create a risk to our dogs. We will never allow a dog to be bred that is too young or too old, and we will never breed a dog too often. We will never put our dogs or puppies in an unsafe environment or situation. And we will never place a puppy for adoption that is not mature or healthy enough for placement. We have taken great care to make sure that all the dogs we adopt are of the highest quality and health. And we monitor the genetics of our dogs to make sure that they will be free of congenital issues for years to come. So yes, our values are at the core of everything we do.

Our “Thrive Environment”
Everything we do at Doodles on the Ridge is about creating what we call a “thrive environment” for our dogs. There are the basic things that all kennels provide: food, water, veterinary care and shelter. But what we have goes way beyond that. Our property has been developed with one thing in mind — to create an environment where every one of our dogs can have a great day, every day. Our farm is a 15-acre playground with everything they need for enrichment — woods, rolling hills, spring-fed pond, beautiful creek and plenty of toys. And they have unlimited access to it all thanks to a state-of-the-art Pet Stop protection system. We have kennels for shelter and protection, but the dogs are not confined to them — they have the freedom to come and go as they please. We also have a full-time staff to oversee their care and ensure that their needs are met. The “thrive environment” is all about happy, well balanced dogs.
