The thing that we are most proud of at Bella mini doodles is that every single dog is first of all a pet in a family that adores them. Not one dog is sitting in a cage or kennel situation waiting to be bred. Every one of my breeding dogs is in a guardian home where they enjoy walks, going on vacation, cuddle time on the couch, all those things that a very blessed dog gets to enjoy. Only the time of whelping the puppies is spent with our family. Where they recieve constant love, and attention along with their puppies right in my kitchen. With four children homeschooled here all day, the puppies always have someone picking them up, cuddling during a lesson of history... and loving them throughout the day. This creates the sweetest dogs who are so connected to and loving with their humans. Because they are whelped in a custom made box right in my kitchen, under the island where the stools normally go, they are kept immaculate. As soon as there is one mess it is cleaned up and everyone is taken outside. The puppies are well on their way to being potty trained and have already learned to come when called before they leave my house. There is always someone getting the litter out of the box to play with them on the floor. We have a long kitchen and one person sits on either end and calls puppy, puppy, puppy and they run back and forth getting pets and praise. This also gets them their excerise and play time. Our mama dogs are connected to their humans, very loved pets who can mother well and teach their puppies how to live in a home rather then a kennel . I know that doing my business this way has cost me, with only 4 litters in 8 years, but I would do it no other way. Every dog deserves a loving, happy home where they are cherished- most of all of our breeding dogs! If you live within an hour of Rochester NY, and are interested in being a guardian home please let me know. I give my best puppies to guardian homes free of charge and I pay you for caring for them!
