A little about DeeCor Goldendoodles........
My husband and I live in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. This is where we have raised our children and spend time with our grandchildren.
My husband is a maintenance engineer and I am a hairstylist. Raising Goldendoodles is not a job to us, it is a hobby that we take very seriously and is done out of love.
Our family has a deep love for dogs. My girls and I started showing dogs in 1997. We have owned, shown and raised Shetland Sheepdogs, a Rough Collie as well as shown many other breeds in the show ring. I have been a member of the Canadian Kennel Club as well as a board member of the Comox Valley Kennel Club. I retired from the dogshow world in 2010 as I wanted to be able to spend more time at home with my family.
Around the same time we began to search for our new family member. After owning dogs with quite a bit of hair and alot of shedding, we knew we wanted a non shedding breed, with an outgoing temeperament that would also be wonderful with children and other dogs. With my knowledge of different breeds I was well aware of the breeds that were non shedding. I know that I am not a terrier person and my husband wasn't too keen on the idea of being a poodle person. Our veterinarian who is our family friend mentioned one day that she knew of a doodle that was in need of a temporary home. After talking to my husband we decided we would like to meet her so off we went the next morning to the kennel she had been staying at.
Well....to make a long story short, we absolutely fell in love with her and this is how we came to love, own and breed the best family dog ever, the Goldendoodle!
