Tails from the Road

San Diego, California

San Diego is a place that Happy Doodle Farm has delivered many goldendoodles and bernedoodles over the years and most of those were trained dogs. It seems like the Southern California region’s weather and culture combine to make an unbeatable atmosphere for dogs when it comes to quality of life. People are out with their dogs in public constantly. This makes having a doodle that is already exposed to training even more important than in most areas. Having a doodle that is predominantly in your home means that the number of rules to follow are fewer and the repercussions for failure are not as great. We offer many levels of training from basic command training to introduce them to good behaviors in the home all the way up to complete turnkey service dogs that are trained to fulfill special duties for their families. People in San Diego may not realize this, but in many parts of the country people just go to work, maybe go shopping and then go home. Their dogs are loving members of the family to be sure, but since the humans just sit at home much of the time, the dogs do too. In San Diego I am sure that is the case too, but it seems like a greater percentage of people are active and doing activities. The first time we went to Torrey Pines we were absolutely blown away by the sheer number of people out and about at a random time of the day. So many had dogs who had varying degrees of training and discipline. The California coast is gorgeous. We made our way down to La Jolla Cove and Scripps Park. Even though it was bustling with activity it is still super peaceful and an unbeatable place to watch a sunset. On one trip we stayed in the Mira Mesa area which was close enough to La Jolla, but out of the city. We went to the San Diego Zoo and decided that it was how Disney would build a zoo if they were building one. Meaning it was a better zoo than Animal Kingdom in Orlando. It just has so much character and the plants and trees were all very well thought out in the design. The animals are obviously great too, but it is just hard to beat the whole atmosphere. Unfortunately, as dog breeders and trainers, we are always keeping an eye out for service dogs. We saw one at the beginning of the day wearing a vest. It was a big standard poodle that looked a lot like our Toby. However, he did not act like Toby. Understandably at the beginning of the day, regardless of how much training a dog has attended there is often a bit of excess energy. This guy was pulling his owners through the crowd and did not only look unfit to be a service dog, but I would not have been comfortable taking him on a walk through my neighborhood. I am not totally faulting the dog, he did not choose to put on a service vest, he is also only as good as his handlers allow him to be. Training Tangent: Since I do not know his history I will assume that he had 8 months of intense service dog training, but even the most thoroughly trained dogs need to constantly be worked with once they get home. Dogs are very much like children, especially these really smart dogs who understand humans better than a typical dog. What these dogs learn is that they can get away with different things depending on the handler. Just like children may be perfect angels for one parent or teacher and disrespectful to another, it is all about building that consistency and trust. Setting those rules and expectations is vital. If you have a dog who is well-trained and can stay on place for hours, but you start letting him come off place whenever he gets bored, he will realize that your rules are not rigid and that you do not expect him to follow you perfectly. The same is true with any command. We had one family complain that their dog was good with commands, but she would jump up on their daughter and sometimes mom. We did not want to hear that, but we also know that those types of behaviors need fixed quickly once they are identified. Within moments we discovered the issue. The daughter taught the dog to not only jump up on her to give hugs, but also to leap into her arms. As tricks, these are good, but her sweet doodle was really being rewarded for these behaviors with extreme affection. A hug from your owner is a huge reward for a loving dog. So by teaching the behavior and not adding in commands to stop it or let the dog know when it is acceptable to engage in these actions she was unknowingly teaching bad habits. If you live in the San Diego area give us a call. Many people who are looking for a puppy are worried about finding a breeder close to home rather than just the best breeder they can find. The problem with this approach is that you do not realize that most of the work in those first 8 weeks are done with puppies, mommas, and breeders. We take care of them, socialize them, expose them to other animals and get them ready for their future home. Living close to us does not really change any of these truths. After 8 weeks, depending on the level of training you choose, the puppy starts school.

Although Happy Doodle Farm is located in Kentucky, our dedication to providing world-class doodle puppies extends far beyond our physical location. In fact, we’ve delivered puppies all over the country. Our local pages are dedicated to showcasing our experiences in these cities and to help you feel a sense of connection to our services, even if we’re not based in your area.

We offer convenient and flexible delivery options to ensure your new puppy arrives safely at your doorstep, regardless of your location. Choose from flying with a small puppy in-cabin, American Airlines shipping for larger puppies, or driving delivery for bigger puppies. We also provide training services tailored to your needs, whether you’re looking for a loving companion, therapy dog, or service dog.

Don’t let our location deter you from choosing Happy Doodle Farm for your perfect doodle puppy. We’re committed to serving you no matter where you are, and we look forward to becoming a part of your local community.

Why Location Should Not Affect Decision

  1. Sales Tax Savings: If you purchase a puppy from us in Kentucky, you’ll have to pay sales tax. However, if the puppy is delivered outside of Kentucky, there’s no sales tax, making the total cost similar to buying locally.
  2. Limited Visits: We only allow visits from clients who have placed a non-refundable deposit. Most clients don’t visit until pick-up or delivery day. In the digital age, we can provide photos, videos, and live streams for clients to choose their perfect puppy.
  3. Health & Safety: By limiting visits, we protect our puppies from potential germs and illnesses brought in by visitors, ensuring a healthier environment for them.
  4. Focused Training: Our puppies receive personalized care and training, making scheduling visits difficult. Reducing the number of visits allows us to focus on providing the best possible upbringing for your puppy.

Bernedoodle puppies from Happy Doodle Farm, where excellence meets love and devotion. Our journey with Bernedoodles began with the quest for the ideal service dog, leading us straight into the loving embrace of Ava. Trained to provide stability and act as a seizure alert companion, Ava has graced hospital corridors with her impeccable service skills. Not only is she a paragon of intelligence and loyalty, but she also embodies the Bernedoodle’s unwavering spirit to please. Ava, a stunning tri-colored Bernedoodle, intertwines the strength of a service dog with the tenderness of a lap dog. Her unmatched zest extends beyond her service duties to her love for play. Whether it’s a ball or a bone, Ava’s determination shines through. Even if an item goes astray in the tall grass, her perseverance ensures she never returns empty-pawed. Our most recent litter carries Ava’s legacy forward, with the added lineage of our phantom poodle, Toby, another trained service gem. The blend of these two pedigrees presents an unparalleled opportunity for those seeking a companion that’s both extraordinary and rooted in a lineage of high-caliber service training. And for those who wish to instill the best foundational behaviors in their new family member, we proudly offer specialized training to ensure your puppy starts its journey with you on the right paw. Seize the chance to welcome not just a pet, but a legacy of dedication, service, and unparalleled companionship into your home.

About Us

My name is Felicia Delaney. My husband and I have been in the family pet business for over 13 years. Our love for doodles began with our first doodles, Cozy and Fanny. After that, the rest is history! It has all become a family affair, including not only our extended family but through our extended Guardian Home family program that extends across Kentucky and Indiana – these incredible family’s help make Happy Doodle Farm possible. 

Every Momma and Daddy dog in the network of Happy Doodle Farm LLC was chosen for their amazing personality, tolerant temperament, naturally born confident demeanor, clear genetic health; beginning with running an embark panel in early puppyhood and of course – adorable appearance. Ensuring these traits are all present have made our Guardian Home program very successful and desirable for family’s to join. Every Happy Doodle is first and foremost, someone’s pet. We believe making sure every Momma and Daddy dog is the center of someone’s world creates the best potential for future Happy Doodles. We work diligently with our Guardian Home’s to make sure each doodle is being cared for by the Happy Doodle Farm core values which are to provide the best health care, training, home setting, love and to always honor each every Momma and Daddy doodle. 

Every litter of puppies is whelped inside a Happy Doodle Farm, family home. Together we all work to make sure Momma’s health and emotional well being are the forefront of what we do. This makes it possible for her to provide the best care for her puppies, we are here to assist her in every way possible and show the puppies from day one that humans are not scary, but here to love them and help them.

We operate Happy Doodle Farm on a promise of disclosure. We will never tell an allergy ridden family that choosing a doodle will exempt them from having any kind of allergy issues. The myth of the hypoallergenic doodle is one that has become damaging to the expectancy of doodles. Please be advised that a “hypoallergenic” dog does not exist, even when the dog is a very low to figuratively “non shedding” dog – the dog is not “hypoallergenic”. We feel there are so many wonderful personality and physical characteristic traits to a doodle that being up front and honest about this will not deter family’s from choosing a doodle who a doodle would best suit.
