are a breeder of Labradoodles and Goldendoodles located in
Davis, California. Our goal is to breed an all-around great family
dog: healthy, allergy-friendly with a superb disposition.
Our interest in dog breeding began with a love
of Labrador and Golden Retrievers, well known for their great dispositions.
A number of our extended family members are allergic to dogs and
so the search was on for the right mix of allergy-friendliness and
wonderful personality. Enter the Doodle! Labradoodles and Goldendoodles
possess the strengths of both the Retriever and the Poodle: intelligent,
personable and allergy-friendly dogs.
As family members,
our dogs live in our home, or approved Guardian
homes, and are socialized with both children and other dogs. All our breeding dogs are chosen for their health, wonderful temperaments
and great coats.
Davis , in the beautiful California Central Valley, lies between the majestic Sierras and the Pacific Coast, a short distance from both Sacramento and San Francisco. We are home to the University of California School of Veterinary Medicine, the largest veterinary school in the United States.
We look forward to sharing with you our love of
the Labradoodle and the Goldendoodle.

We are very proud of the fact that 3 of our Doodles have been chosen for the covers of the 2006, 2007, 2009 (labradoodle) and 2008 (goldendoodle) calendars.
Neptune - 2009 Labradoodle Coverboy
Neptune is our 6th generation
Australian labradoodle. In addition to being the dad to many
of our pups, Neptune has received his "Canine Good Citizen"
certificate and has been certified by the Delta Society as
a "Therapy Dog". Neptune travels to long-term care
facilities in Sacramento to do what he does best...make people
Zorro - 2008 Goldendoodle Coverboy
Zorro's smile says it all! He is a sweet, gentle ball of fluff! In addition to his career in front of the camera, Zorro serves as the Loeb's family dog as well as the dad of our goldendoodle pups. Who couldn't love a face like this? : )
Neptune - 2007 Labradoodle Cover boy
Lounging by the pool, waiting for his agent to call with the details of the next photo shoot, Neptune is still remarkably "down to earth" despite his celebrity status ; )
Rory - 2006 Labradoodle Covergirl
Rory is the mom of
our F1B labradoodles. She was the covergirl for the first
professionally produced labradoodle calendar. We think they
made a superb choice : )
"Journey" on her way to becoming a Service Dog...
(Journey at 9 months)
"Journey", is an English goldendoodle from our Phoenix/Topher litter. She is currently in training to become a service dog. Her owner is a therapist who counsels first responders (fire fighters, police officers, paramedics) who are dealing with the trauma they encounter daily. Journey's job is to provide a listening ear. a wet nose and a helping paw to the men and women who serve us all.
We're proud of you Journey!
