OUR GOLDENDOODLE BREEDER STORY
& OUR SHEEPADOODLE BREEDER STORY
Want to learn more about what goes on behind the science and emotion of raising doodle puppies? You can learn more about Cheri, RVD, and puppies in a great podcast.
Here is a link to the podcast, done by NYC dog trainer Annie of School for the Dogs, with Cheri, AKA "MamaC", of River Valley Doodles:
Some of the family.....
Khloe likes to sing to the puppies and read to them at bedtime. She dressed up as a puppy for Halloween, draws dogs, and makes crafts in puppy dog formats. She will roll up her sleeves and help clean anytime. She is special and overcomes her challenges by focusing on doggos. She has come a long way in the past couple of years and we look forward to seeing her continue to develop. The next gen...
We have lots of family and friends that help raise our puppies!
We are a mom and adult daughters (with grandchildren that also help) that are working together to raise great puppies for loving families. We live in different households. Our Goldendoodles and Sheepadoodles are part of our family and they live in our homes. They have a spot on the couch (or the whole couch), fun car rides and adventures, and lots of treats and toys. The pups are born in a home and not in a separate outbuilding. They are our pets, not 'kennel dogs', and the girls in guardian homes are also part of their family and treated as such. We’ve had dogs in our family since any of us can remember – and since meeting Doodles, we’ve become avid fans of them!
Cheri, also known as "MamaC", is one of the daughters of the group. She does a lot of research on dogs. She is not only interested in genetics, but also dog behavior and training. She worked at a vet's office for almost 15 years, has read hundreds of books on dogs, and is constantly on breeder and vet forums learning about dogs, and doodles in particular. She is the primary communicator with owners and prospectives, here at RVD. Her family has always had dogs, and has accumulated years of experience raising puppies. Debbie is the matriarch, and Carrie and Jessica are part of "the sisters." There are also cousins and guardian home families that participate in RVD.
After years of doing dog rescue and shelter fostering, we’ve decided to raise Goldendoodles and Sheepadoodles because we love the breeds. There is a reason why they are rarely, if ever, found in shelters or rescue - because they are awesome! They offer attributes that we love – they are low to no shedding, they have smarts from the top ranked in intelligence of all dog breeds, and a healthy vigor that is more than pure breeds due to the mix of genes. They also come in a variety of sizes, colors, and coat styles. These Doodles are a fantastic breed that are here to stay (just like full breed dogs were once developed and had to be 'allowed' into dog clubs, Goldendoodles and Sheepadoodles are a contemporary version of the same).
We spend a considerable amount of time socializing our puppies so they should quickly acclimate to your home. We are not pushy – we know there is always a demand for these great pets and we don’t need to push a puppy on anyone that is not ready or the right fit. We strive to find the right home for the puppy – and the right puppy for you! If you would like to speak to one of our Puppy Owners, we can ask them to contact you, by request - although you are best off asking Instagrammers that are owners of our pups. Here are REAL testimonials - RVD Puppy Owner Testimonials
Want to know if we have puppies? Take a look around our website and then contact us via email. Visit our Available Puppies page.
Our services and puppies have become quickly popular. We are blessed to have great owners for our puppies. Many of our puppies are in the NYC area. We also have puppies in NJ, CT, Long Island, NH, MA, VT, FL, and PA. We always want to meet our new owners, but we also do our best to deliver puppies for those that are in urban areas, such as NYC, or difficult to travel to areas (including Nantucket!).
We intend on adding to our offerings/information on this website to make a source for all puppy owners. And, because we never have enough puppies for all of our requests, we are partnering with several small, family breeders that we've come to know and will offer their puppies on our website, in addition to having several guardian homes that care for our doodles.
We thank our fans for all of their support and interest in us and our puppies. We are blessed.
