My name is Jennifer and I started Ocean View Labradoodles in 2010. In July 2009, Kiah, my Australian Shepherd, was killed and the opportunity to adopt a miniature Labradoodle named Daphne came along. Needless to say, I fell in love with the little bundle of joy that helped me get through the loss of my best friend Kiah. My family had always planned on breeding Australian Shepherds, but after bonding with Daphne and meeting other Labradoodles, I was quickly hooked and Ocean View Labradoodles was born. Sharing this breed’s wonderful qualities with others and maintaining the integrity of the Multigenerational Australian Labradoodle are the goals of Ocean View Labradoodles. My Labradoodles and I share the property with my parents, our Australian Shepherd Maisy, and our barn cat Kit Kat on the beautiful Southern Oregon coast. In 2012, I went back to school for a degree in teaching and needed help if Ocean View was to continue. My parents took an interest in labradoodles as well and Ocean View Labradoodles became a family business. My mom, Sheri, is the main contact person for our puppy families now, especially during the school year!
All of Ocean View’s puppies are born and raised in our home. The whelping area is in my bedroom, the playpen when they get older is in the living room, and when the pups are old enough to venture outdoors, an outdoor run area is made available to them during the day. They are introduced to a litter box early on, which will get them started on potty training before they leave Ocean View for their new homes. They will also be socialized with our other dogs, our cat, and children of all ages to provide them with as many experiences as possible to lessen their stress when they leave our home. When they are old enough, around 6 weeks, we get them used to being bathed in a groomer’s tub and standing on the grooming table while being brushed and having their nails clipped. They have been groomed at least twice by the time they join your family. We feed both our parent dogs and our puppies a holistic dry dog food.
