The Sproodle or Springerdoodle is a cross between the English Springer Spaniel and the Poodle, my adult Sproodle size is typically between 30-40 lbs. This breed combination is more popular in England and has been known to have a very pleasing disposition, loyal, calm, friendly, and trainable. They will have less drive than an aussiedoodle, calmer/gentle, less nippy, a good choice for families with small children that might not need the higher drive. They LOVE water and will choose to swim every day if given the opportunity. They also love to play fetch and will bring back a tennis ball over and over again. They are a quieter breed and you shouldn't expect them to bark at strangers. Strangers? They have never met a stranger, everyone seems to be their long lost friend. They are not destructive chewers, but rather they pick up items that are similar in size to their toys and well, chew on those new found toys. They are silly and playful and yet they desire to curl up with you to watch a movie. They are very easy to house break, just as easy as the Aussiedoodle. So what's the biggest difference between the Sproodle and the Aussiedoodle? The drive, the Aussiedoodle thrives on learning more and needs more stimulation in the area of learning/training. The Sproodle is happy with basic training and won't be demanding of learning more. I hope this answers many of the questions I get asked, call me if you would like additional information.

I am frequently asked about how well they (Sproodles and Aussiedoodles) get along with cats. I have three cats, they are now all over 10 yrs old, they have never been attacked by any of my dogs and they have the opportunity to be nose to nose daily. A puppy raised in a home with an existing/established cat typically does fine.

Phone calls only on initial contact, I like to get to know each family before they take a puppy. I am interested in hearing your story, everyone has a story and I enjoy learning about this new family that is getting ready for a puppy. Call me, don't expect a short conversation as I want to make sure I answer every question you might have, even questions you haven't thought of. I love my dogs, they are part of our lives, and I look forward to hearing from you.

I am a no pressure breeder, I don't take deposit money prior to a litter being born and deposits aren't due until the puppies are 2-3 weeks old (once their eyes are open and my vet clears them healthy). If you would like to reserve a Sproodle you will need to call me, expect a lengthy conversation, and then I will put your name on the reservation list. I have plenty of videos of my Sproodles (even grown adult Sproodles) that I can share.

All puppies are expected to go home the week that they turn 9 weeks. If your puppy needs to stay beyond 9 weeks, the boarding fee is $10 per day once he/she turns 10 weeks. The boarding fee includes food, grooming/bathing, supplements (probiotics and vitamins), crate training, and any subsequent de-wormings. Additional vaccinations given beyond 9 weeks are $20 (given at 10 and 12 wks of age). I prefer that my puppies are picked up by the time they turn 16 weeks, as it is best for the puppy to acclimate to their new home/environment.

*Reservation list: to hold a place on a future litter you just need to contact me (phone call). I DO NOT require a deposit prior to the whelp date. I firmly believe that a litter should be born and each puppy evaluated by a veterinarian prior to deposit money being sent (not until the puppies are 2-3 weeks old). The reservation list is based on when each individual contacted me, with those that have waited the longest at the top of the list. I always reserve the first pick girl to stay here and then make my decision by the time they are 6 weeks old, most of the time I don't keep a puppy. The deposit holds your place on the list until the puppies are old enough to meet and choose your puppy (6 weeks of age or older). Prior to 6 weeks of age (before vaccinations) puppies can't have outside visitors, but once vaccinated everyone is welcome to visit, meet the parents, and puppies, and essentially choose your puppy at that time. Most requests "I want a puppy with a super curly coat" or "I want a black/white parti colored girl" can be met if you are really willing to wait (6-8 months), but please have an open mind each puppy is unique and should be met and considered as color/coat is just that "Don't judge a book by it's cover." Also, all of my puppies are unaltered (natural tails and dew claws).

With my focus on training I have built a pavilion for my dogs with the potty box built right in the deck. I had several ideas in mind when I did this, but my goal was to avoid having wet/muddy dogs in my home on rainy days. I don't like the outdoor kennel idea and I wanted to avoid concrete and keep with the concept of training the dogs to use both the grass/lawn and a "potty" box. To read more about this concept please visit my training page.
