We are located in upstate SC in the Pisgah National Forest not more than a few hours drive from Atlanta, Charlotte, Asheville, Charleston and Chattanooga. Puppies are raised in the fresh air of the foothills of the Appalachian mountains. All Fountain Falls puppies are born in a home environment. They are exposed from an early age to children and household sounds such as music, vacuum cleaners, and television. They play in an adjacent 2000 square foot puppy play yard which is stocked with all kinds of puppy toys, slides tunnels and ramps. They get baths, nail trims and regular grooming to get them ready for these things in their new homes. They begin training to a potty box at three weeks and are taken outside regularly by five weeks, weather permitting. This makes house training much easier when they transition to their new homes.
None of my dogs live in kennels or cages. Prospective breeding puppies are placed in their forever guardian home at 8 weeks. Our stringent health testing is completed between 12-18 months. They have their own family to live with and love. Each girl is bred from 2-4 times. When retired they are spayed and become a permanent member of their guardian family. The boys visit FFG as needed but also have their own home. Dogs need a family to love and play with. The welfare, health and happiness of each FFG dog is my primary focus. What is best for the dog or puppy in question is how I make decisions.
I stay current on the latest research by staying in touch with other premium breeders, and researchers. I go to at least one breeder conference a year where I always learn so much. My puppy raising protocols are always evolving and changing to meet current industry standards. I've participated in Puppy Culture and Avid dog training and have developed a puppy raising protocol that gives Fountain Falls puppies the best beginnings as they go to their families or work as Service and Therapy dogs.
I'm proud to say that I am actively involved with the Goldendoodle Association of North America. Goldendoodleassociation.com. I'm a certified blue ribbon breeder and work hard to support and improve the GANA organization. Always buy from a GANA breeder.
In 2014 my daughter Neelie, and her husband Steve, joined GANA at the blue ribbon level. They are now raising goldendoodles with the same care and attention to detail that you find at Fountain Falls Goldendoodles. Their kennel name is River Falls Goldendoodles. Riverfallsgoldendoodles.com

We are one of the few breeders that offer limited breeding of English Teddy Bear micro minis which are under 20 pounds.
