Our Beliefs

~The righteous care for the needs of their animals~ proverbs 12:10a



Our dogs are more than our lifestyle, they are family.


Dogs are our passion, family, and livelihood. We believe it is our moral responsibility to provide the utmost care to our dogs. We believe we owe it to the generations after them to ensure a lifetime of health and happiness through the best care, rigorous health testing, quality veterinary care, and a lifetime of owner support.


Our girls are provided the best quality comfort care we can give, and do not spend their life in a kennel. They live day to day in our busy household, as family pets, being loved on and cuddled as valued members of our family. The dogs love going for car rides and walks and love a good hike in the woods behind our home. Our puppies are raised in our home, being handled daily exposed to children. 


We believe in the importance of quality veterinary and health care. Our dog's physical health and emotional happiness are our two biggest concerns at Animal Ark Acres, and the two often overlap. We rely on an excellent veterinary team to provide the utmost care for our dogs. We will never breed if posing a risk to the mother or against veterinary advise. We also believe in quality care for each of our pups and spare no expense in ensuring their health and safety. 


All potential breeding dogs undergo both genetic and OFA health testing with our veterinarian before being considered for our breeding program. Dogs hold such a special position in a family, and we do everything in our power to ensure our puppies are set up for the heathiest and longest life possible by doing our part in bettering the genetic pool of the breed. 


When we produce a puppy, we believe that dog is our responsibility from conception until their last breath. All Puppies go home with a no-transfer agreement. If the unthinkable happens and a home is no longer able to keep their dog, all Animal Ark dogs are welcome back with no questions asked. We will seek the best veterinary treatment, and re-training options before finding a new home for the individual. Puppies leave microchipped, so that no matter where life takes you, we can make sure you are reunited with your pet. If for some unthinkable reason one of our dogs ever finds itself surrendered to a shelter we will reclaim the dog, footing the bill of their care. anytime we can be of assistance during your journey of dog ownership, we encourage you to reach out so that we can encourage and support you. We love hearing from our puppy families, and it brings us great joy when one reaches out with an update or a picture! 


It is our greatest desire that each family of an animal ark labradoodle flourishes and has many happy years of dog ownership.  We offer ongoing support through emails, phone calls, or text messages to our personal cell. Any question, any time of the day we will try to assist you in any way possible. We do not offer public boarding, but our Animal Ark puppies and their dog brothers/sisters are always welcome back to the farm for boarding purposes (with full vaccinations of course!) if you need to go away. Please do not hesitate to contact us- no question is a bad question, and if we do not personally know the answer, we will do our best to find out for you or connect you with someone beyond our expertise. No milestone in life should be undertaken alone, and getting a puppy is no exception! 


Each puppy litter has its own (private) facebook group so littermate owners can connect and encourage one another. This group starts will everyone on the reserve list for that litter who has placed their retainer/deposit, with daily "pup-dates" from myself as the dogs grow from pregnancy to their go-home day at 8 weeks. This way families can be a part of the process from day one right through to "gotcha day". This is also a great place to share your growing puppy photos after they come home! 



We are honored you would consider one of our puppies to be a part of your family, and we take our job very seriously. We believe a family dog is one of the greatest gifts, and your puppies health and safety is our passion. While puppies bring such great joy, bringing new life into this world is serious and momentous, and we do not take our roll lightly.  

We cant wait to meet you and get to be a part of this magnificent journey with you and your family!
