About Us

A Healthy Legacy

At Big Thicket Doodles our goal is a healthy legacy, happy and well rounded puppies, great family pets, and breed development.  

Our mamas and papas are fully health tested and have a clean bill of health. All are a member of our family that we love and spend each day with.

(Note:  We do use studs from reputable breeders at times.)

Our puppies are raised in our home amongst a busy household full of children, pets, and daily household noise and activity.  They each learn early on what it's like living with a family, and no matter the size of yours, I can assure you our puppies are completely acclimated to the hustle and bustle of family life.   

Each of our puppies is trained from birth until Gotcha day using ENS, Puppy Culture, and Fenrir Perfect Puppy programs.  **ENS - Early Neurological Stimulation:  ENS is a process that introduces mild stresses to very young puppies in a controlled way. These stresses help stimulate the neurological system which improves the growth and development of the pup’s immune system, cardiovascular system, and stress tolerance.  All three of these programs are designed to give your family pet, therapy dog, and whomever they each become a fantastic start to life and companionship.  

A bit about us:

Hello! I (Leah), along with my husband (Roderick), our oldest daughter (Madalyn), and our two oldest sons who are a huge help to us all, run Big Thicket Doodles.  When our oldest son was diagnosed with severe dog allergies, put on mediation that greatly affected him, and then we were encouraged by his doctor to reconsider pet ownership in order to be weaned off of his medication, we believed pet ownership would be something of our past.  Though we were able to have outside dogs as guardians to our goats and chickens, a family pet seemed like a dream. A few years later we discovered the doodle, took a chance, and that dream came true.  That one doodle led us to an appreciation for pups with hypoallergenic coats and a desire to help other families like us!  Our "Puppy Pack" has grown as our son's allergies have become less and less severe and even all but disappeared with age, but our love for Doods and Poods will never go away!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us, and we will do our best to help in any way we can.  Let us show you just how wonderful Doodles can be!
