Welcome To Westwood!
Westwood Labradoodles, Goldendoodle and North American Retrievers is located in Central Ohio, but puppies born here live all over the world! Our dogs have lived in Japan, Sweden, and Canada, in addition to the US. We are a home-based program, breeding about 3 litters per year. Our breeding dogs live as pets in guardian homes; we do not have kennels.
We specialize in mini and medium Doodles, and our puppies are allergy-friendly advanced generation Doodles. Our Labradoodles hail from both American Labradoodle lines and Rutland Manor and Tegan Park Australian Labradoodle lines. We worked with top Goldendoodle breeders in creating our mini and medium Goldendoodles. The cream of the crop of our Labradoodle and Goldendoodle lines were crossed to create the next logical hybrid...the Double Doodle or North American Retriever.
Westwood Labradoodles and Goldendoodles was a pioneers of these hybrids called Double Doodles, or North American Retrievers. In fact, Helene Roussi, coined the name 'North American Retriever' for the hybrid, defined as a dog that contains Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, and Poodle (and ONLY these three breeds) in its pedigree. We produced the second litter of Double Doodles ever...Lincoln Manor Labradoodles beat us by a couple weeks in 2006.
In addition, to producing outstanding family pets, we are very proud that 13 of the puppies bred at Westwood have been trained and placed as service dogs, and numerous others are trained as therapy dogs. Because our puppies are advanced generation Doodles, upwards of 90% are non/low-shed and allergy-friendly.
We raise our puppies underfoot in our Midwestern Ohio home. We don't have kennels, because, aside from 'our' dogs, Marley and Callie, our breeding dogs live as pets in guardian homes. So all our dogs are first and foremost our family pets, and we want to share these wonderful dogs with others. We pride ourselves on breeding healthy, temperamentally-sound family companions.
Our Labradoodle, North American Retriever, and Goldendoodle puppies all come with lifetime support, and a 26 month Healthy Doodle guarantee from the day you bring your puppy home.
Our recommendations from happy owners speak volumes! As you research on the web you will find 'Owner Recommended Breeder Lists' that are, in fact, paid advertisements. In contrast, customers that recommend us as a Labradoodle, Goldendoodle or Double Doodle breeder are the real deal, people who have actually worked with us and gotten one (or more!) of our puppies. If you request it, will put you in touch with real people who have experienced the level of customer service we give as a top notch Labradoodle,
Goldendoodle and Double Doodle breeder.
What does it mean to you when we say, "Backed by the best in customer service"? It means our Labradoodle and Goldendoodle breeding program is small enough to give you responsive, personalized service. Examples:
- Phone calls, emails and texts nearly all receive responses within 24 hours, and most receive a response in less time than that.
- If your puppy is under 10 weeks of age and time permits, we will deliver young puppies to you by flying to your city and bringing your puppy in the cabin as carry-on.
- We will work with people on our waiting list by sending hair and saliva samples to check for allergy-friendliness.
