Doodles on Duty|About Us  

My husband and I began a search in the fall of 2004 for a service dog to assist my husband (C5-C6 quadriplegic, due to a motorcycle accident in 2001) in his daily activities. Being partial to Labrador Retrievers, I began to search for organizations that used Labs in their training programs. My husband, on the other hand, was interested in a non-shedding breed in order to minimize all the extra housework for me associated with a shedding dog (he’s such a sweetie!). 

I searched for a while in vain for the perfect dog, but then "Voila!" I found the answer to our dreams, the Australian Labradoodle! Because we were unable to find a service dog organization that trained Labradoodles exclusively, we knew our chances would be slim for Matt to be matched with a Labradoodle as there are no allergy problems in our family. 

Well, we decided to take matters into our own hands: Our first goal was to train our own service dog for Matt. Our vision is to develop a training organization for Labradoodle assistance dogs. Our mission is to produce a superior line of Labradoodles much like the founder of the breed, Wally Conran of Australia, with an extraordinary talent for assisting people with disabilities. 

The beginning of our first dream came true when we brought seven-week-old Down Under’s Scooby Doodle Doo home to live with us in May, 2005. Since then, Scooby has exceeded our wildest expectations! He developed into a wonderful service dog, a true testament to his breed. The only problems Matt has in public now is getting around without 20 people stopping and asking about Scooby! 

Scooby was the foundation to our breeding program.  He has now retired from breeding, but produced a wonderful daugher, Velma Doodle Doo (also retired), who is the mother of all our current breeding gals. We started our breeding program very slowly, because we wanted the absolute best foundation stock.

 We currently train the vast majority of our breeding stock for service work. Some of our dogs will work for Matt or for me (Peripheral and small fiber neuropathy due to late-stage Lyme disease, which causes severe pain and balance issues). Others are working dogs in guardian homes. 

We also have many pet puppies who are currently service or therapy dogs. Our vision to provide dogs to serve as assistance dogs for people with disabilities, in honor of Matt’s daily struggle with life as a quadriplegic, has finally come true!
