Welcome to OBX Doodles, where we breed beautiful CKC standard, medium and mini Goldendoodles, Aussiedoodles, standard Poodles, and standard Bernedoodles in 2020. We are are located near the Virginia and North Carolina border in Hertford, NC. Our town is a small boating and farming community within an hour of the Outer Banks. What sets us apart from many other breeders is our unique guardian program, where all of our dogs and puppies are raised in a nurturing home environment with real families and never in an outdoor kennel. Each litter is born and raised IN our home, exposed to normal household noises, socialized with other dogs, and handled daily by adults and our children alike. We have had multiple puppies achieve Canine Good Citizen recognition and go on to complete Therapy Dog International training (TDI). Your puppy will be bomb proof!
We are a daughter/mother breeding team and a true family operation, often enlisting help from our husbands, children, and my brothers. We consider ourselves an average family. My husband, Matt, is a teacher and my mother and I are both nurses. We live with our three children and our Standard Poodles, Bonnie and Elsa, as well as our Goldendoodles, Belle, Jasmine, Piper and our Toy Poodle Minnie. My mother, Tracey, lives with us and keeps our other Goldendoodles Nani and Lilo. In addition, we have other poodles and goldendoodles all placed in excellent guardian homes with local families.
I have been around animals the majority of my life ranging from household pets to livestock and am finally living my dream of breeding dogs. I chose the Goldendoodle breed because I've had both retrievers and poodles. Although they are both great breeds, I believe that combining the intelligence and non-shedding characteristics of the poodle with the goofy, family-oriented golden retriever yields the perfect family dog.
To honor safe and responsible breeding practices, we look at each breeding female to determine if it is better to breed back to back heat cycles or to skip a heat. We prefer to retire our females at a younger age. This helps to produce healthier litters and reduce prolonged trauma on our Doodle Mommies. We love our dogs and will always put them first.
When you place a deposit with us, we make ourselves readily available anytime by phone, email or in person. We try to build relationships with our adoptive and guardian families by sending one another updates with letters, pictures, and communicating through our Facebook page. We'll try to match you with a puppy that will best fit your family based on personalities and your lifestyle. Families who have already placed a deposit are allowed one visit around the time the puppies are 6 weeks old so you may pick your puppy. This meeting allows us to advise if the puppy will be a good fit for your family. We hope you'll consider us and look forward to welcoming you into the OBX Doodles family!
