Our dogs and puppies are TRULY HOME-RAISED. 

Affordable Designer Dogs specializes in AKC Standard Poodle and F1b, Labradoodle puppies. We are State Licensed In-Home Dog Breeders. Our puppies begin life as part of our family. Much better than a puppy mill or uncaring breeder. Plus you are invited to come visit any time.

I DO LOVE ALL THE BABIES.  I want them to start them off knowing love, feeling love and expressing love as well. If they are shy they get special alone time to boost their confidence so they can get in and play with the others.  If one is a smaller, they will get fed first.  It seems natural to take care of their needs. People just have to accept I am a little silly.  I am their 'Grammy' and I talk baby talk and get a little crazy playing with them. Spending their first eight weeks with Grammy, being HOME-RAISED WITH LOTS OF LOVE, you're not going to go wrong.

We encourage you to visit and take pictures and video as your puppy grows. You are welcome to visit any time.  Before or after you have reserved your puppy and even after you have taken your puppy home if you simply want to visit or show a friend what we have going on. 
If you are interested in one of our puppies and can wait until they are here please visit our Available Puppies and Reservations pages.

Thank you so much for your interest in our puppies!

The demand for Doodles continues to grow and become more and more popular each year. The reasons being the 'little-to-no-shedding' qualities of the hair coats, the outgoing personalities of the hybrids, the superior intelligence and easy 'trainability' of the breed.  I believe that the other breeds temperaments are vastly improved with the calm, loving disposition of the Poodle.

I know a lot of people think of Poodles as fluffy, prissy, ribbons and bows type of dogs, with painted toe nails and fancy collars but there is a lot more to a Poodle than a pretty package. 
Poodles are a calm laid back dog who love to be with their families.  They are gentle, very intelligent and awesome athletes.  They excel in obedience, agility, and make wonderful  therapy dogs.  They have what I call a 'turn off switch'.  They can be playing one second and laying at your feet (or more likely on the couch) the next.  They come in all sizes from Toys to Standards.  Lots of colors from Solids to Parti and Brindles.
The Poodles bring their wonderful temperament, their intelligence and also their non-shedding HAIR coat to the Doodle crosses.  This is what endears them to so many new owners.  The trade off is that many of the hybrid crosses do have to be groomed on occasion but the 'low-to-non-shedding'  keeps your home a lot cleaner.   
*I prefer Standard Poodles.  This is why we do not raise 'minis'.  I personally feel that the smaller poodles are not as calm and obedient as the Standards are.  They are just a little too 'yippy' for me. 

Nothing is lacking in our puppies. We just know

that you don't have to be rich to love a dog.
