Happy Doods – Goldendoodle Puppies Raised in Ohio

— We're the Doles family! —

About Us

Happy Doods is a small, family breeder run by Katie and Josiah Doles and our two children. We strive to produce happy, healthy, heart-healing Goldendoodles. While we all have a life-long passion for animals, Katie also has a background as a veterinary technician. Katie grew up in a small rural village breeding and raising hunting Beagles with her family. Later, she went to college to become a veterinary technician and worked in the field for 8 years. Katie is very excited to use her medical knowledge and background to return to her roots breeding and raising puppies to share with you!

Our puppies are raised and socialized using the Empowered Badass Breeder program. This program utilizes early neurological stimulation (ENS), starting on the third day of life, which helps dogs to manage and recover from stress more easily throughout life. We also perform daily exposure exercises to introduce puppies to a variety of experiences (motions, sounds, people, pets, etc.) just like service and therapy dogs. We are committed to extensive puppy evaluations that help guide our clients to making the best match possible taking into account their needs as well as those of the puppy. Please see our puppy curriculum link for pictures, videos, and more information about how we raise our puppies.

All of our parent dogs are tested with Embark genetics, Penn Hip, OFA cardiac, elbows, and eyes. You can learn more about each parent on the parents page.
