Welcome to Dallas Doodles. My name is Ashley and I am the proud owner, founder and operator of Dallas Doodles. We are a family with an abundance of love and true value for all our animals. We live in Dallas, Georgia on our 10-acre horse farm with our three children, Brock, Maddox and Reese; our 2 sweet doodles Chloe and Oakley;, and our 3 horses.
My goal is to produce puppies with exceptional temperaments who are able to thrive in ongoing life settings. We also want to keep the health, body structure, genetics, and overall well-being of our puppies as a number one priority, in a non-kennel environment. Each puppy sleeps in our home, where they are nurtured with love and attention and become part of our family until they depart to yours.
This gives the puppy a stable foundation to grow on, long after my care. The foundation is the key to an easy and well-adjusted transition for both puppy and new family. My breeding parents’ testing is of the highest quality to ensure the best possible outcome for healthy and sound puppies for our amazing families. We are very proud of our breeding program and strive for excellence.
What is GANA?
GANA is a big part of Dallas Doodles.
We are classified as a Blue Ribbon Certified Breeders business, with a well-respected organization called GANA. This means we adhere to the elite ethical standards and certify the thorough health testing of every breeding dog with the association. Our yearly GANA certification requires their review and approval of our program, health clearances, practices, and policies. You may always contact GANA directly to ensure we are members in good standing. While GANA doesn’t govern us for our Bernedoodle breed, Dallas Doodles hold our Bernedoodle dam and sites to the exact Blue Ribbon qualifications. We are listed on Good Dog as an ethical and in good standing breeder. We hold all certificates and testing requirements to receive this certification.
We only use the TOP quality health testing labs. All of our breeding of dams (females) and sires (males) includes health testing for hip dysplasia and have certificates with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and/or E-Vet, a lab run by well renowned veterinarian, Dr. Kent Wallace. OFA also certifies our dogs’ hearts, elbows, patellas, and eyes. Other DNA tests include– but are not limited to –all common diseases for specific breeds. We do a full DNA panel on each breeding dog, and each testing panel is listed under the dog’s biography.
Extensive coat testing is done as well. We do furnishing, color, curl and shed testing on all breeding dogs. All breeding parents must pass all levels of testing to be eligible to be our elite breeding stock. As you can tell, we are very thorough with our health testing to only breed the elite level of Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles. We take testing extremely seriously.
I am known for socializing my puppies for successful home placement. You could say it’s my specialty and what families appreciate and remember. In my extensive research and experience over the years, I have studied different ways of raising and handling the puppies and exposing them to new people, other animals, and different life experiences. I have taken the best of these different methods and combined them to formulate my own training and growth.
This produces the best pups for our families needs. We start with two forms of socializing: Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) and a form of Puppy Culture. This combination gives our puppies a special edge and a strong foundation for transitioning to new environments and allows the pups to put their best paw forward.
As a family with three children, we have active helpers in our program. They handle and expose our pups to all kinds of experiences like loud noises, inside and outdoor play, quick movements, and extensive handling all over the puppy’s body. This is monitored by me at all times and helps the puppies, especially the ones moving into a family with children in the home. We start the process of crate and potty training so they have some familiarity with training expectations when they get to their new home.
