Welcome To Wild Paw Doodles
"Where your dream puppy is created"
Our home based program is located in beautiful Northeast Iowa. I feel raising puppies in home gives a more personal feeling to the experience plus it allows us to nurture your baby. We snuggle them, love on them, we cuddle your baby, and let them explore our entire home. They get used to every day things that go on in our busy lives. Puppies learn how to play, they learn boundaries in the home, they get to nestle themselves on the couch next to our kids while enjoying the secure and home feeling.
I don't feel that a kennel type setting works for our program. We are much more than that. I feel that the best way to raise a puppy is in the comfort of our home. It's natural and real.
Our dogs enjoy being a part of our family and love to play outside together. They love to riding in the truck with the windows down. Playing in the swimming pool with our kids and have so much fun jumping on the trampoline. They certainly make our house a home and make our family whole and very blessed.
I hope to be able to help you find the perfect fit for your family by breeding only the best dogs. In this site you will find the mothers, fathers and all the information regarding my program. The best thing about Wild Paw Doodles is that my dogs are part of the family. Your puppy will be given the best care as we are very hands on in our program. We have a Vet approved health protocol and we also use early desensitization for easy transition into your home. Our puppies go home litter trained, started on kennel training, and used to everyday life. This makes us different from most. We truly work hard behind the scenes to make your dream puppy a reality.
I truly feel that this is what I was meant to do in life. It's one of those things that make your heart full and you really fall in love with each puppy. The families we meet and send our puppies to have become a part of our extended family. I always welcome you to our home and into our program.
There's nothing quite like the doodle and we love to share them with you. We hope you enjoy our website and be sure to follow us on Facebook.

What Is A Goldendoodle?
Goldendoodles are an intelligent and obedient family companion. They are everybody's friend and devoted to their family. They are friendly towards children, other dogs and pets, and easy with strangers. They are social dogs, happiest when with people. Their intelligence, eagerness to please, and love of learning make them very easy to train. They are medium-to large sized family dogs with easy dispositions.
The Magnificent Doodle
Temperament is affected by several factors, including heredity, training, and socialization. Puppies with nice temperaments are curious and playful, willing to approach people and be held by them. Choose the middle-of-the-road puppy, not the one who's beating up his litter-mates or the one who's hiding in the corner.
Always meet at least one of the parents — usually the mother is the one who's available — to ensure that they have nice temperaments that you're comfortable with. Meeting siblings or other relatives of the parents is also helpful for evaluating what a puppy will be like when he grows up.
Brains & Braun
With their intelligence and interactive nature, your puppies would briskly pick-up everything you teach them. Training them is easy, as long as you are strict with issues like obedience, ‘pack-leader’ syndrome, etc. However, if doodles not trained properly, they can easily become neurotic and hyper. Teach them the difference between right and wrong. But train them in a gentle way. They need a job just as we do. It's imperative for their mental and physical health.
Coat Types & Colors
Just like most poodle hybrids, Goldendoodles can shed, it is typically not nearly like the Golden Retriever. But to say they are non-shed would be a misconception. . A Goldendoodle’s coat is shaggier than a Golden Retriever with a beard and furnishings. The color of a Goldendoodle’s coat can vary and may appear orange, cream, dark brown, gray, black, parti, abstract, etc.
Although some dogs may have a coat with two or three different colors. For people with more severe allergies, it is a better to get a second generation or “back-cross” bred Goldendoodle. The term “back-cross” is used when a first-generation hybrid is bred with a purebred dog that is the same breed as one of the hybrid’s parents. Genetically speaking, a back-cross puppy bred in this way is a “first generation cross”. So, a back-cross Goldendoodle puppy has one parent that is a Goldendoodle and another that is a purebred Poodle. The objective of this type of breeding is to produce dogs that will shed less. The coat of a first generation back-cross (since it is three parts Poodle and one-part Golden Retriever) is far less likely to shed, making it a far better option for a dog owner or a family member with severe dog allergies.
Living The Life
He is loyal and, with proper training, can be highly obedient. He does have a playful side and can be mischievous if the mood hits.
Like every dog, the Goldendoodle needs early socialization — exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences — when they're young. Socialization helps ensure that your Goldendoodle puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog. Enrolling him in a puppy kindergarten class is a great start. Inviting visitors over regularly, and taking him to busy parks, stores that allow dogs, and on leisurely strolls to meet neighbors will also help him polish his social skills.
Usually highly affectionate,

We love what we do, and always strive to do even better. We are a small in home breeder and we have a great and very successful guardian home program. This allows us to be the best possible breeder as we are not a kennel.
I have my dogs here with my family. They are loved, taken care of, always have proper vet care, toys, and treats, and so much more.
They sleep in our beds, play with my children, and ride in our cars. We literally live around our pets as they are so important. I want to bring high quality puppies into this world.
I health test each dog in my program so I can ensure the puppies health. Each dog has their results from Paw Print on their individual pages.
We train each of our dogs to be respectful and obedient. My children are a part of it all too. They help and take care of many things for their pets. I feel that it is important for them to learn responsibility by taking care of our dogs. I teach them every aspect of our business.
We value our dogs, they deserve the best and that is what we give.
Our dogs are not kenneled, they are not in a barn, they are not in a garage. They are in our home. They are a part of the family. They get birthdays, and presents under our Christmas Tree. I can't express enough how much they mean to us.
I found in my dogs something that is rare, something intangible. I found their abilities, I found what they can do, I realized how wonderful they truly are.
One thing that is important to me is that I am breeding for a temperament. I pair my dogs together with their compatibility, their drives, and how they are as a dog in general. I take pride in having puppies as a part of a therapy program for their owners, they are taking classes for mountain training, awareness classes for rattlesnakes to save their families while on a hike.
I love that they become a part of another family, they swim, fish, boat, hike, kayak, run, and so much more. My Doodle Families give me many updates on how their puppies are doing, how much they mean to them, how they have changed their lives. This is what it is all about to me. This is why I do this.
