My name is Barbara Schwab, in 2003 I brought home my first labradoodle ,an F1 boy named Tahoe. Little did I know what a wonderful crazy world he would introduce me to! Shortly after we brought home Reno, An F1 goldendoodle and and love affair with doodles began. I was so in love with these dogs that I decided, much to my husband's dismay that I wanted to become a breeder. I set out to find a mentor and some dogs to breed with. I studied for 3 years under another breeder and learned all I could as well joined breeder forums and read everything I could get my hands on. My first breeding girl did not pass her health clearances so we placed her in a wonderful pet home and tried again to find just the right girl. We love our doodles and work hard to produce healthy, well adjusted pups. In the beginning we bred both labradoodles and goldendoodles but in 2017 there were some BIG changes around here. First we have moved to Waynesboro, PA to be close to our grandkids and secondly, we will be concentrating on goldendooldes. We love labradoodles but our last girl has retired and we have decided to focus on what we have living with us. Our pups are raised in our home and underfoot. We do occasionally use guardian homes abut require that the mama's come to our home to raise litters.

Our goal is to provide you with a wonderful low to no shed, allergy friendly pet with a wonderful temperament. There is no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog as allergies are as individual as the person that has them. Most doodles are well tolerated by people with allergies.
We can provide you with a wonderful puppy but you have put in the effort to make him or her a great dog!

Health Testing

The health of our breeding dogs and the puppies they produce is very important to us.  We test hips, elbows, patellas and heart via -OFA, eyes(CERF and PRA-prcd and/or GR_PRA if applicable),  and Thyroid. Our goal is to make each generation better than the generation before. If a dog does not pass testing they are spay or neutered and placed in a pet home.


Puppies are raised in our home and handled daily. They are exposed to common household sounds ,children, and cats.  They are checked by our vet often and will have had their first vaccinations and have been wormed and microchipped. 

Our Home

We are located in  a small town in the Sierra Foothills and live surounded by oak and pine trees.  We have a large fenced yard for the big dogs and smaller fenced yard for puppies to explore.
