Max & Penny blessed us with 11 healthy, strong puppies during the early morning hours of February 28, 2023. We had 4 girls and 7 boys; golden, black and chocolate. Contact us soon to adopt your next best friend! Puppies go home @ 8 weeks.
Adoption Day Countdown Has Begun!
We are proud to announce that we have been granted CKC Preferred Breeder status; adhering to higher breeding standards with a personal touch in a way that makes for healthy and well-rounded pups. Discover the difference!
We are also a family. We have always had dogs, from keeshonds to basset hounds to cocker spaniels but especially labs and now poodles!! 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 fur-ever 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!
Our adult dogs have regular checkups at Northpaw Animal Hospital in Durham NC and are up to date on all of their vaccinations and screenings. Penny and Sadie are seen by their groomer regularly.
We feed and recommend Royal Canin foods, which provide optimal nutrition. It costs a little more, but they're healthier as a result. We are proud to be Royal Canin partners. Puppies go home with a Royal Canin introductory starter kit!
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 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 F1 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.
A F1B Labradoodle is a cross between a F1 Labradoodle and a Standard Poodle. They typically have a curlier shorter coat than the F1. Their coat will be close to hypoallergenic much like a Standard Poodle.
