Pine Winds Labradoodles, located 25 miles north of Kansas City, Missouri, began with one dog and the desire to volunteer as an animal partner therapy team. I retired from teaching after 34 years and with all three children grown I decided to pursue this adventure by purchasing my first labradoodle. Marley joined our home as a puppy, became a Canine Good Citizen, and continued on to pass her evaluation enabling her to be registered as a therapy dog with Pet Partners. Occasionally she was bred and produced puppies with exceptional temperaments, several becoming therapy dogs as well. Most importantly the puppies have become excellent fur members of families. Marley has retired as a mom and now enjoys more visits to nursing homes.
Mia, my second dog, is a puppy from a breeding of Marley to another labradoodle who was a registered therapy dog. She became a Canine Good Citizen just after turning 6 months old, and then we enrolled in basic/advanced obedience classes. Mia also tested high during Pet Partner evaluations and is a registered therapy dog as well. I have passed my R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) certification making both dogs eligible to participate with me as soon as we find a nearby school at which to volunteer. My dogs are working dogs whether they are visiting, enrolled in agility classes or taking refresher obedience training. Marley a Mia, and Poppy are proven to represent the best of temperaments and mind set a labradoodle should possess.
I have two breeding dogs so I am able to spend quality time working with each puppy. I search out the best males with exceptional traits that I can find to breed my dogs to, hoping to continue with a lineage of therapy partners. Raising a litter of puppies is hard work but seeing them with their families certainly makes it worthwhile!
Pine Winds puppies forever homes include the states of Arkansas, Connecticut, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, and Texas.
