Fostering Excellence with Dedication and Expertise
Greetings, and thank you for gracing Gravel Ridge’s distinguished website. We are a dedicated, family-centric breeding enterprise specializing in the meticulous breeding of Sheepadoodles, Bernedoodles, and English Bernedoodles. Our commitment is unwavering, producing these exceptional breeds from CKC registered, health-tested lines to ensure the highest standards of quality.
With a wealth of collective experience, we have devoted our lives to the noble endeavor of breeding registered purebred dogs. In contrast to commercial or large-scale breeding operations, Gravel Ridge distinguishes itself through an unyielding focus on quality rather than quantity. Our breeding philosophy, deeply rooted in our family’s traditions, is anchored in conducting our breeding efforts within the sanctity of our home, eliminating the use of kennels.
Our commitment extends beyond tradition to encompass impeccable temperament, robust health, and strict adherence to breed standards. We uphold the ethical breeding practices, reinforcing our dedication to producing dogs of the highest caliber.
Every member of our family, including our children, plays an integral role in this esteemed journey. United by a shared reverence for the breeds, we derive immense pleasure from nurturing and caring for these magnificent creatures. Our puppies undergo comprehensive socialization and desensitization, exposing them to a diverse array of stimuli, ensuring they develop into confident, content, and well-adjusted canines.
To elevate the development and potential of our puppies, we employ advanced techniques such as Early Neurological Stimulation, Early Scent Introduction, and the Badass Breeder program. These scientifically proven methods stimulate our puppies’ minds, senses, and bodies, acclimating them to various environments and circumstances. Such methodologies contribute to their resilience, adaptability, and intelligence, fortifying their ability to navigate life’s challenges.
At Gravel Ridge, we take immense pride in our registered purebred Sheepadoodles, Bernedoodles, and English Bernedoodles. We welcome inquiries and concerns, extending an open invitation for visitors to our premises by prior appointment. Lifetime support and guidance for our esteemed puppy owners are integral components of our commitment. We consider them extensions of our family, and their companions’ continued well-being in their new homes brings us profound joy.
If our breeds have captured your interest or if you are eager to expand your understanding of these remarkable companions, we extend a warm invitation for your correspondence at your convenience. We are enthusiastic about the opportunity to connect with you, share our deep passion, and provide insights into our exceptional breeding practices. Your time and attention are highly appreciated, and we anticipate the possibility of your visit in the near future.
At Gravel Ridge, we specialize in the meticulous breeding of Sheepadoodles, Bernedoodles, and English Bernedoodles. Our daily endeavors are dedicated to the preservation and advancement of these distinguished breeds. Each breeding dog at Gravel Ridge is considered a cherished member of our household, or, in the case of Guardian Families, thoughtfully placed in loving forever homes. This commitment is rooted in our firm belief that every Sheepadoodle, Bernedoodle, or English Bernedoodle deserves the companionship of its own dedicated family.
our breeding program adheres to rigorous health assessment protocols. Employing cutting-edge techniques, we conduct comprehensive evaluations for genetic anomalies and disease susceptibilities. Central to our screening process are DNA and Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) tests, ensuring that all breeding dogs undergo thorough examination to ascertain freedom from hereditary health concerns before any breeding considerations are made
