We Raise Only Top-Quality Labradoodles
Doodles are our life. Our home, Mountain View Labradoodles, revolves around our adult Labradoodles and each new litter of puppies that we lovingly bring into the world for new owners like you.
We are the complete opposite of a puppy mill. Our breeding dogs do not live in kennels. They live on our 3 acres or with approved guardian homes where they enjoy large indoor/outdoor areas that are custom-built for the unique needs of puppies. Their day is scheduled around exercise in different yard areas where they run on fresh grass, challenge themselves on an obstacle course, go for walks, and come inside our home to play calmly and snuggle. Our females whelp only two to three litters and then “retire” so they can live a regular dog life with their family.
Right from birth, each litter of puppies is welcomed into our home as family. Their nursery across from my own room is my “whelping” center where I hand deliver each puppy and aid in their care, along with their mom, until they’re four weeks old. They then move to a large indoor/outdoor pen with many custom-built features for their comfort and safety.
We watch the puppies for hours with delight, care for them as if they were our own children, play and laugh with them, and revel in each milestone … opening their eyes, their first walk, first kibble, first everything! It’s all very exciting. We even take them camping with us!
But what we love most is witnessing the special bond that begins so sweetly between your pup … and you.
We pour everything we know and have into your pup so he or she will get the best possible start in life. We don’t mind bragging that what you’re getting is a puppy that we think is … well … absolutely perfect.
“This is amazing!! We couldn’t be happier. The kids say, “Mom, we got the best one!” I couldn’t agree more. Thanks for raising such a great puppy. I’m sure we will have our share of chewing, but until then he can do no wrong. He even sleeps from 10pm-6am!!?”
Hi, I’m Terrie Schaff, owner of Mountain View Labradoodles.
I really do feel like I have a God-given talent to produce beautifully and impeccably bred Labradoodle puppies.
From the time I was a young girl, my life has revolved around breeding and baby animals. I raised cats, dogs, horses, and bunnies, and took great pride and care in the birth and bringing up of each litter. It’s all I wanted to do!
Since then, I’ve spent countless hours with vets, other breeders, and trainers who are top in the field. My training as a vet-tech gave me a deep understanding and background in animal life-cycles, medical and minor surgical care, the genetic science of disease, disease transmission, prevention, vaccination, and animal physiology. I’ve also taken many obedience classes and promote compassion and respect in every teaching moment with puppies and dogs.
My breeding practice is a combination of all of the best techniques I’ve learned and my natural intuition with animals. Along with my husband Gene’s special touch and focus on socialization, the puppies we match to families like yours are some of the best you can get in the United States.
Additionally I would like to introduce my niece, Sara Gilliam and her husband, Robby. They and their family (4 children) add so much to our business! They have been working with us at Mountain View Labradoodles for the past 5 years, whelping litters and raising puppies to 6 weeks of age. Robby has now taken over all website, social media, and marketing. Because their children have grown up with puppies in their world, they are the best for socializing. The puppies get used to the noise of children and being gently snuggled regularly.
Having this wonderful family help in our breeding program has allowed us to have more litters then we were previously comfortable having at one time. I love working with them and making this a family business!
