We at Davis-Struempf would like to introduce our newest employee. His name is Buddy and he will be trained as a therapy dog. He is currently in training.
Therapy dogs have been known to have many benefits to people, especially in grieving. Some of the healing effects of therapy dogs are: - Decrease in stress, anxiety and depression - Increase in spirit - Decrease in loneliness and feelings of isolation - Decrease in blood pressure, in heart rate and in the stress hormone cortisol
Shep and Margaret Fargotstein became a blended family with both children and pets. They decided that after their pets were gone they would get a dog as a couple. “We researched several breeds,” said Margaret. “While we were away on a beach trip, we met a family that had a mini golden doodle. We fell in love. We got the breeders information and contacted her; and the rest is history.”
Chloe Louise is a female mini golden doodle, a mixed breed between a golden retriever and a poodle. “All of my previous dogs, which were Shetland sheep dogs – and males – all had names beginning with the letter T,” explained Margaret. Shep felt that we needed a fresh new start with names and breeds. This was “our” dog, not dogs we had brought into our blended family.
The couple was at dinner with friends when Margaret was sharing prospective names for their new fur baby. “I thought about Emmy, Zoe and Georgia. After all she came from Georgia. Leslie said ‘how about Chloe’? Shep and I both smiled and the name stuck. Since all of my dogs had middle names, Chloe Louise she became!”
Eleven-month-old Chloe has yet to go on her first real vacation, but loves to travel around town. “Her favorite outings are the park, Home Depot, the bank and just riding around with us,” said Margaret.
Margaret says Chloe looks like a stuffed teddy bear and has been a bright spot in their lives. “After losing my mom this past summer, which was very hard,” explained Margaret, “she has filled a void and has been a real source of joy to me and to my husband.”
Pet Peeve: Chloe has an outgoing personality but snips too much. But she is also so loving and smart.
From Chloe: I like quiet walks in the woods, dinner with candlelight, and soft music while resting. Pet’s Peeve: I can’t stand it when my human dresses me up like a clown dog, but he likes it, so I pretend to like it too.

We are partnered with 1 Boy 4 Change, an organization that is training and providing service dogs for children and adults. We will be providing poodles and goldendoodles to them to train as they are available. Please consider donating to this foundation.http://www.1boy4change.org/home.html
We are one of a few breeders that use OFA testing to insure a healthy puppy from health tested parents. We test for hips, elbows, patellas, hearts, VWD, and PRCD/PRA as required by breed and size.
We guarantee you are buying a genetically superior dog. If you don't buy from us make sure you buy from a breeder who can show you the genetic and OFA testing that is done on their dogs. Don't just settle for a " health warranty" where you return the puppy if it is unhealthy and get another. You will probably end up with another unhealthy dog.
