Hello & Welcome to Big Valley Labradoodles

Thank you for stopping by our website and checking us out.  I know there are a lot of reputable breeders out there but we believe we have something special to share with you at Big Valley Australian Labradoodles.

My name is Maria, and I have lived in the Northern California area all my life. It’s a great place to raise a family.  I have been blessed to have a home with some room to roam, and I love sharing that lifestyle with my family, friends and my fur babies.

So, how did I decide to become a breeder? It all started out as being a guardian for a fantastic breeder of Golden Doodles in Ripon.  I wanted to have a family pet that my future grandchildren could enjoy and cherish.  I knew I wanted a family-oriented pet that was hypoallergenic (just in case my future grandchildren had allergies).

I also wanted one that didn’t shed (I had Gizmo my beautiful Pomeranian boy for 19 years–he could shed, and how!).  I have my Penny Nickle, and I absolutely love, love, love her but she sheds A LOT. I decided that I had room for at least a couple more dogs, so I researched, researched and researched the best dog that would meet all these needs. Low and behold, I found my Sweet Emma from Shadow Mountain Southern Branch.  Praise be, she has been all I expected and more. Her sweet temperament and fun personality has me hooked for life.

My husband and I do not want to be big breeders, just a litter or two a year (if even that).  I want to be able to bond and enjoy the puppies that we raise for as long as we have them.  We want to actually share this breed with families so they can love what we love in this breed.  It really has been a true blessing and joy to be a part of this breeding adventure.

Ethical breeding is important to us, and we feel extremely lucky to be a part of a true and experienced breeding program called Raising the Breeding Bar.   They have taught us what it is to make sure our pups and our program always stay true to the breed and are raised with their health and happiness at the forefront of all that we do.

We’d love to help you find your forever fur baby because I truly believe you will not be disappointed in choosing an Australian Labradoodle to add to your family. Give us a call or apply now for one of these darling, sweet pups.
