Shining Star Doodles strives to create the healthiest, well-tempered, and lowest shedding Doodles possible.  We use the most well-tempered and healthiest parents in order to ensure the healthiest and happiest of pups.  We are passionate about matching the right pups to the right homes and providing support and education along the way.  We have spent years developing protocols to ensure successfully placements with our pups and families.  

All of our dogs are raised in our home and NOT in a kennel because we believe that proper socialization happens best in the same type of loving and caring environment that the pups will live in. We understand that the first few weeks of life are critical times of development and use a combination of the latest research and scientifically developed protocols for raising puppies.  We have trained in and actively use  Puppy Culture, Avidog and The Puppy Socialization Project protocols to socialize and train the pups in this precious window of development.  Our protocols do include ENS (Early Neurological Stimulation), crate training, clicker training, and potty training.   We focus on creating calm, resilient pups, that believe learning is good.

Shining Star Doodles was started after experiencing the miraculous transforming love of our Goldendoodle Lexi with our then 4-year-old daughter Anastasia. Anastasia struggled with anxiety and selective mutism and only began to speak in school after adding Lexi to our family. Anastasia, as well as our 4 other children,  now work to help socialize and train all of the puppies we raise.  Our goal in breeding has always been to share this same healing power with other families.


Our daughter

Our daughter Anastasia not only overcame her fear of dogs with Lexi, but also had a massive improvement in her anxiety issues.  We have witnessed this same transformation in many other families and individuals that we have placed dogs with as well.  

We are currently breeding Multigenerational Goldendoodles in standard, medium, and mini size. All of our breedings are thoughtfully and carefully planned to match breeding dogs that complement each other in structure, temperament, health, and coat traits.  We do extensive health (DNA, OFA and Penn HIP)  and temperament testing with all of our dogs. 


We are also actively involved in educating ourselves in how to better care for our dogs.  We are very active members in our breed club, The Goldendoodle Association of North America (GANA).   We volunteer many hours in providing leadership and direction to GANA.


  We continually strive to improve our education through breeding seminars, networking, taking courses, and continually discussing our program with our veterinarian advisors.  We are committed to the development, health,  and future of the Goldendoodle breed.  If you are looking for a passionate, ethical breeder, then look no further! 

We would love to share the love and joy that dogs have brought to our family with others.
