We are proud to announce that we have been granted CKC Preferred Breeder status! We are also a family. We have always had dogs, from keeshonds to basset hounds to cocker spaniels but especially labs and now poodles!! James is an author and pastor and Cari is a patient advocate. We have made Durham NC our home for over 25 years. We started River Home Doodles because we love dogs and want to share the joy of having a furever friend!
Max loves to swim in the Eno River near our home in every season. He's a powerful athlete with great retrieving instincts. He's also taught himself how to open doors with every imaginable handle. Penny lives for "squirrel patrol," always on the lookout in the woods nearby. She's graceful and fast. Max & Penny are pals!
Max and Penny have regular checkups at Northpaw Animal Hospital and are up to date on all of their shots and screenings.
We feed Max and Penelope breed-specific Royal Canin foods, which provide optimal nutrition. It costs a little more, but they're healthier as a result. The pups will be fed Royal Canin Large Breed Puppy Food when they are weaned. We are proud to be Royal Canin partners.
The AIS PennHIP Clearance method has strong scientific foundation as the most effective hip screening tool for dogs. Both Penny and Max have been cleared.
The Biosensor Routine is a series of five simple exercises. They are performed on each puppy once a day, starting at three days of age.
A FI Labradoodle is a cross between a Standard Poodle and a Labrador Retriever. The main advantage of F1 breeding is they have the highest possibilities of hybrid vigor, which means they will be healthier with fewer genetic defects. A well-bred F1 Labradoodle gets the best balance from both the Lab and Poodle; they have a sweet and playful temperament and are intuitive, quick learners (often used as therapy dogs). The coat of a young Labradoodle will change over time. There is a transition from a short and soft puppy coat to the longer adult coat -- this means they "doodle" increasingly as they mature. The easiest way to determine the coat type of a Labradoodle is to look at the fur around the face and muzzle--fur that has crimps or waves will similarly be wavy/shaggy or also curly, although it is not possible to tell which until the pup is a little older. A F1 Labradoodle has a low-shedding coat.
