About Puppy PatchOur Family
A Little About Us
My name is Annette and I live in the beautiful Okanagan, centrally located in Kelowna. My family and I have recently moved to Kelowna from Prince George, where I started my breeding program. We started Puppy Patch 6 years ago with just two fabulous doodles….6 years later I have over 20 breeding girls and boys that all live in loving forever homes. Our babies are all raised in our home and sleep with us 7 days a week! Most people think we are crazy but we feel we are super lucky to have doodle love everyday.
My husband works construction and is often very busy but together we raise our three children. We have a “normal” busy household with our dogs, our children, their schooling and sports and of course day-to-day life. Our children are actively involved with raising our dogs.
Dawson, age 15, is a typical but genuine teen. He is helpful when asked. He does his best to help me run things smoothly. Dawson enjoys basketball, baseball and guitar.
Kaitlyn, who is 12….a pre-teen keeps me on my toes but still enjoys the everyday tasks of feeding and watering the animals with the reward of having them sleep with her in her bed. She enjoys all animals. She has a rabbit, two cats, fish, and a horse, all who are interacting with our puppies daily! She spends most of her days at her horse, not always riding just cleaning and grooming are some of her favorites. If she isn’t with her horse she is making a mess in her craft room.
My youngest is Landon who is 10 years old and he loves to be busy….always! He is great at entertaining the puppies and is the most helpful with puppy chores. He loves hockey, golf, fishing and baseball.
Most people think we are crazy but we feel we are super lucky to have doodle love everyday. I am 100% confident that you and your family will feel the same way about your Doodle as we feel about ours!
Since our new move to the Okanagan our time spent together has changed a bit. We use to spend weekends at our cabin doing some fishing and hiking. Now we enjoy, tennis, biking, walking and the water, of course! We also love our indoor time having movie nights snuggling up on the couch. Whatever it may be our dogs are always with us. We live in a historic family neighbourhood with children all around us, close to the lake, so we can take the dogs for swims and close by hikes.
Our Puppy Patch has been expanding over the years. Almost all of my beautiful dogs are living in wonderful Guardian homes. Living with us in our home we have Tillie, our F1 Standard Goldendoodle, who is retired. Toker, my boy, who is retired, as well and Lulu, who has one more litter to bring to us until she is retired. My girls are bred typically 3 times until they enjoy retirement life. Sending my breeding dogs to Guardian homes is the best because we all know one family can not possibly care and provide enough love to so many. Each one of my breeding dogs is sent off in to amazing hands, with a ton of everything they need.
I am 100% confident that you and your family will feel the same way about your Doodle as we feel about ours!
