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 picturesque 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 in our home is our “whelping” center where we 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!!?”
In 2001 Terrie Schaff started Mountain View Labradoodles. She really felt like she had a God-given talent to produce beautifully and impeccably bred Labradoodle puppies.
From the time she was a young girl, her life revolved around breeding and baby animals. She raised cats, dogs, horses, and bunnies, and took great pride and care in the birth and bringing up of each litter. It’s all she wanted to do!
Since then, she spent countless hours with vets, other breeders, and trainers who are top in the field. Her training as a vet-tech gave her 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. She also took many obedience classes and promoted compassion and respect in every teaching moment with puppies and dogs.
Mountain View Labradoodles breeding practice was built on a combination of all of the best techniques she learned and her natural intuition with animals. Along with her husband Gene’s special touch and focus on socialization, they produced Labradoodle lines that match to families like yours are some of the best you can get in the United States.
Along the way Terrie started working with her niece Sara Gilliam and her husband Robby. Through many years Terrie and Gene passed on their knowledge and expertise to Robby and Sara as they partnered in the business. They have been partnering with Mountain View Labradoodles since 2010, whelping litters and raising puppies. In 2018 Robby and Sara started doing most of the business as Terrie and Gene moved towards retirement. 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. We believe Mountain View Labradoodles is not only built on family love and care, but also on our love for puppies. Many people ask us why we do what we do? The moment we place that adorable puppy in your arms for the first time and see the joy on your face is the reason. We love providing puppies that enrich homes and create an environment of love and affection. We truly believe that at Mountain View Labradoodles you’re not just getting any puppy, but one of the best!
