As far as discouraging your friend from recommending, I find it's helpful to direct people to the GRCA, the LRC, and the PCA. All have very good reasons for coming out so firmly against the practice of breeding Poodle crosses.

Please help me, convince my trainer friend that these are not breeders she should be recommending. I am thinking they fit the definition of a puppy mill.

Personally I would stay out of it.

That's what I would suggest as well.

Tell the instructor that you can't recommend any mutt-breeder and leave it at that.

If the people are stupid enough to plop down any money to buy a moppetty muppety looking mutt, that's their problem.

Dare to Dream Labradoodles

We purchased a miniature Australian Labradoodle from Dare to Dream. Lacey is a miniature and will be 6 in June. She is beautiful and smart but has a lot of health issues. She has an allergy to meat protein and so is on a veg diet. She has IBD. She has a serious allergy to bee stings and yesterday she was diagnosed with petite mal epileptic seizures. We love her dearly and we feel so bad for her. We spent over 10,000 dollars so far in her health care. Our vet said this happens when the Sire has been overbred. So please be careful when purchasing. I spoke to the daughter as she lives in Guelph where we live and she denied anything as I expected she would.

I personally have a dog from Doodlelane and I would not recommend either of them. The living conditions are absolutely appalling. There were dogs everywhere when we went to pick up our little one. Her house smells of urine and took two solid weeks for our little pup to get rid of the scent. Structurally, many of said ours doesn’t look like a Doodle. Vet said it could be from inbreeding but we love her anyways. We have spent thousands on her health since bringing ours home in January on top of what Linda charges per pup. Having that many litters a year is just not ethical.

My opinion is just mine. Take it for what it is.

Doodle Lane and Dare to Dream Labradoodles

Stay away from these breaders. My dog was sick for the 1st year of her life with giardia which is transferable to humans. She has turned out to be the sweetest most lovable dog...however this is because of the breed NOT the breeder. We where very lucky. Threw that year I join forums and put myself out there so other people that purchased from this mother daughter team could share their stories with me. Linda the mother had the forum shut down through her lawyer. It is definitely a puppy mill...dogs being over breed and not nice living accommodations for the pups and their Mom's...Just go and check it out!!! DoodleLane and Dare To Dream Labradoodles. Lovely websites though ��

To add over the years I still get at least to 2 calls a year because someone started digging deep and came across my last post(in the forum the Linda had shut down) which included my name and phone number. I have talked so many people that have very sick dogs giardia is just one that many of her pups had, their were seizers averaged around 2 years, pups arriving with broken leg, pink eye, one has no immune system. I spoke to someone today that has a 5 month old pup should be about 40-45 pounds now and is 17 pounds. This pour pup has been throwing up and has had diarrhea for 8 weeks. She is on an iv and the vet thinks it is IBD which is mainly a cause of over breeding...Many more...be careful.
