We began breeding several years ago when a friend invited us to join their family Cockapoo business (check out Dutch Haven Dogs). We jumped in with both feet and loved it!
After several years, we've decided to start breeding our favorite dogs ever—Aussies! Our years at Dutch Haven showed us what great dogs Poodles are, and we love the increased health and vigor in the Doodle puppies. We're excited to share the loyalty and intelligence of the Aussie and the low-shedding Poodle with families.
Our dogs all live in our home (most distributed between the teens' bedrooms), and our puppies are raised with Jeanette Forrey's Badass Breeder program (we affectionately refer to it as BAB) and Jane Killion's Puppy Culture.
Our journey to dog breeding started with a dozen chicks living in the basement of our rental house in 2009. We like to say we had backyard chickens "before it was cool." The chickens came with us to our current home, and were followed by turkeys, pigs, goats, and even guinea hens. We sold meat occasionally, but mostly eggs. We gave our chickens the best life they could have and did everything we could to truly be free range and grass fed, far exceeding the governmen’s definitions of those terms. Our customers wanted that full understanding of where their eggs and meat came from. Nothing was hidden and nothing we did needed hiding (we even welcomed families to chicken processing day!). Our practices led us to the name, "The Honest Egg."
We received Angus in 2010, after his previous family discovered they had allergies. Angus was friendly, charming, and sometimes too smart for his own good. He took his job herding the chickens very seriously, and constantly alternated between patrolling his huge backyard and chilling in the living room
After we began breeding with Dutch Haven, and our youngest child arrived, we realized we needed to step away from hobby farming. We no longer have any chickens, and our entire backyard is fenced in for the dogs.
We lost Angus rather suddenly in the summer of 2020 to degenerative myelopathy and a form of cancer. We miss him every day, but his loss spurred us to start The Honest Egg Doodles.
We love seeing so much of Angus' wit and spunkiness in our MIni Aussies (although they share no relation).
