About DoodleSmith

For the past 40 years, I have been the owner and general manager of ImageSmith, a full service printing and marketing services company. Several years ago, I became enamored with thought of becoming a breeder as I entered my retirement years. I wanted to breed a dog that would be the most ideal pet, companion and helper for most families. I chose the Goldendoodle, which is smart, mostly non-shedding & hypoallergenic, and is many times used as a trusting therapy dog.

I began my breeding career as the owner of Saffron, Bella and Princeton; Saffron and Bella are both female AKC Standard Poodles and Princeton is a male AKC English Golden Retriever. Bella gave birth to her first litter of English Teddy Bear Goldendoodles in the summer of 2018.

I only breed F1 Goldendoodles (AKC Poodle and AKC Golden Retriever cross) because they are the only true goldendoodles and are the most healthy; they also exhibit the best hybrid vigor - increased vigor and qualities superior to those of both parents. DNA testing and studying of the Goldendoodle breed allows me to feel quite confident that my puppies will be some of the best of this breed you will find.

I welcome your inquiries.
