What sets IDOD apart from other breeders?  



It is important to know what is going into your new puppy, before they come home to you.  At IDOD, all of our puppies are raised in home, with love & tailored 24 hour care. We are present during every birth.  We do daily puppy handling exercises.  At Day 3 we begin early neurological stimulation and continue with enrichment activities and socialization until the puppy comes home to you.  We provide experiences for each puppy and create enrichment seekers. 


Not only do we work with each puppy, numerous times a day, we set each puppy & puppy parent up for success.  By following the Puppy Culture Protocol and the BAB/Empowered Puppy program, it is easy to ensure that the correct activities are presented at the most opportune times in the growth and development cycle. Loads of resources are provided to help you prepare and get off on the right paw.  Information on safety, bone/joint health, exercise and potty training are provided. IDOD offers extended stay and training programs to help meet your needs.


IDOD chooses only the highest quality dogs for our breeding program, which in turns gives us the highest quality puppies.  Full genetic testing, OFA Certifications and coat trait testing is completed before breeding.

We are skilled nurses, which really elevates the level of care than is given to our parent dogs and our puppies.  Photos/videos are provided weekly (if not more) so you can follow your puppy, all along the 8 week period. New puppy parents are kept up to date on the puppy achievements and progress. 


IDOD has been thoroughly researched and coined one the TOP ethical breeders in Missouri and the United States.  That speaks volumes!  But the proof is in the puppies….What do our customers say?  Read our abundance of 5 star reviews on this website, Google and FaceBook.  Many of our clients have come back for not only a second doodle-but a third. We love it and so do they!
