About Us

Welcome to Westwood Labradoodles, Goldendoodles and Double Doodles!

We are experienced breeders (breeding Labrador Retrievers for the first time in 1976, breeding Doodles since 2003) and pride ourselves on our quality breeding program, and the quality of the information we provide, as well as the many wonderful professional relationships we have developed with Labradoodle and Goldendoodle breeders all over the world.  There is no greater source of pride than when another great breeder refers a prospective owner, or when an owner of one of our pups contacts us asking to bring home another!

We are a small, home-based breeder of Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, and North American Retrievers (also called Double Doodles) located in Central Ohio.  We breed Multigeneration Labradoodles from both American and Australian lines, Medium, Mini Labradoodles, and Multigeneration Mini Labradoodles. We were among the first breeders in the country to combine Goldendoodles and Labradoodles to create what we think is the best hybrid yet, the 'Double Doodle', or North American Retriever.  In fact,
Westwood proposed the name 'North American Retriever' for this cross in 2005, and it stuck! So we pride ourselves on pioneering the Goldendoodle/Labradoodle hybrid that has now become as popular as the hybrids from which it originated.


We also take pride in the ongoing relationships we develop with families and individuals that purchase our Doodle puppies. We are still in contact with people who took home puppies from our very first litter in 2004! We enjoy receiving regular emails and letters
with pictures and updates. You can read letters from
owners of Westwood puppies here.

Our Doodle puppies are lovingly raised in our central Ohio home with our 2 children and various animal friends.  Our dogs are first and foremost our family pets.  None of our breeding dogs ever live in kennels.  A couple live with us as our family pets, and the rest live in guardian homes...family pets in someone else's home  Just ask the kids!  

All our Doodle puppies come with a 26 month health guarantee. And this is our commitment to those that join our family when they take home one of our puppies:

Courtesy - I will treat every person who contacts me with courtesy, and strive to answer questions and provide information to the best of my ability.

Integrity - I will treat everyone fairly, and strive to do what is right, no matter how difficult it may be.

Perseverance - I will persist despite challenges, until the best outcome possible for everyone is obtained.

Self-control - I will develop self-discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others.

Indomitable will - Every event, even those that seem negative, will be seen as an opportunity.

A-SAH!
