Hi! We are Shari and Bill Stevens. We are a small, in-home breeder of Aussiedoodles and AussieGoldendoodles. We absolutely love to talk about our dogs and the breeds; and we welcome any questions you may have.
Shari is also a private duty nurse and Bill is a truck driver. We have adult children and grandchildren who visit us often. Our son with special needs lives with us and helps care for the dogs and puppies. One of our granddaughters, Kadenz, was autistic and she spent a lot of time with the dogs and puppies. Unfortunately Kadenz died in an automobile accident in 2017. The dogs have been such a wonderful presence in our entire family.
Our dogs do not live in kennels. They live inside our home always. We are a family of dog lovers, and we live in a nice country setting with lots of room for our furry family members to romp and play. We have a love of Aussiedoodles that began when we had our first experience with one and we were hooked immediately .They've warned us that they are addictive...they were so right!
Autism and Aussiedoodles
Aussiedoodles are becoming widely sought after for their advancing skills in guiding,
comforting, and being fantastic companions and therapy dogs for children with Autism and other Autism Spectrum Disorders. Goldendoodles are recognized already as wonderful therapy dogs for their loving and compassionate nature. Adding the
qualities of the Australian Shepherd, also known as the "Aussie", into the cross it adds the wonderful herding, guiding, and gentle corralling nature that is instinctual to the Aussie. This makes a tremendous difference in the ease of training for the advanced abilities they will contribute to individuals and families looking for a dog well suited tomeeting some of the various needs and comforts an Aussiedoodle provides.
