Jason and La Donna Klocinski along with our pets are Patriots Poodles and Doodles. We are located in Whitehouse Ohio, outside of Toledo. Jason retired from the Air Force in 2016 and La Donna is currently employed in the field of law enforcement. We have two teenage daughters who help with socialization and the training of our puppies. We love our doodles and want to share the breed with others seeking to complete their family with a cherished pet. We are a small hobby breeder and are currently breeding American Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles.
Dog breeding is our passion but we have a limited amount of puppies for sale each year. We spend an exorbitant amount of time with our puppies preparing them for their forever homes. Our labradoodles are given the absolute best start in life and are born and raised in our living room. They are handled lovingly every day. Our parent dogs have been genetically tested with the results available for your review. All of our puppies come to you at 8-10 weeks with a minimum of starter training. We begin training on day 3 with early neurological stimulation which has been proven to have lasting results to the puppies' overall health (for more information see the website: breedingbetterdogs.com). All of the puppies will start basic obedience training while they are with us through their first 5-10 weeks. Many other breeders are calling this level of training a "Starter Puppy" but we are doing this for no extra charge. Most puppies will be able to sit, lay down, come, and know a correction command, along with a great start on potty training. We also work with the puppies to stop nipping and mouthing which saves you from those sharp puppy teeth. They will be well socialized and used to normal household and city noises. We include desensitization training to sounds like fireworks, gun fire, traffic, ect. We believe that the training will make life easier for you and happier for your puppy.
The puppies will come microchipped with a prepaid lifetime registration through BuddyID. You will also receive access to professional training videos and a discount offer on pet insurance. BuddyID comes with a collar ID for your new family member. If your puppy is lost anyone can use the collar number ID to contact you and BuddyID also offers Safe Spaces service. If your puppy gets out, BuddyID can provide information on your authorized safe space for your puppy to be taken if you are unavailable or out of town. Your puppy pack will include a food sample, a blanket with Mom's scent, new toy, a favorite toy that the puppy enjoyed playing with, doggy waste bags, a custom ID tag , and treats that we used for training. You will receive a vaccine record folder with a veterinarian certificate of health along with educational handouts to assist you with your new family member.
The early Australian Labrador-Poodle crosses in Australia produced large dogs, but they were often stubborn with high energy levels. It was therefore decided to introduce another breed. Cocker Spaniels were introduced and the result was exactly what the breeders were trying to achieve. They created a breed with a good temperament, larger bone structure than the Poodle, and most importantly, the Cocker Spaniel’s soft fleece coat. Even today, some breeders are still using Cocker Spaniel in their bloodlines.
Labradoodles are a mix of only Labrador Retrievers and Poodles and their characteristics vary with each generation. Their coats and temperaments can also be inconsistent. They can have a heavy shedding hair coat to a non-shedding poodle type coat. If you are going to adopt a Labradoodle, it is very important to adopt from a reputable breeder and advise them what characteristics you desire in your new puppy. Labradoodles are not all "hypoallergenic" and can very drastically in every aspect. The Australian Labradoodles are at least 5th generation and are consistently non-shedding with a fleece coat that is fluffy and wavy (although they can have other coat types the fleece is the most desirable). The Australian Labradoodles are generally, smaller, calmer, live longer, have consistent temperaments and have more desirable physical characteristics. When adopting a puppy it is important to meet the parents of the puppy to get a good indication of what the puppy's physical characteristics and temperament will be like. Genetics play an extremely strong role in a puppy's temperament and physical characteristics.
Both breeds do make wonderful family pets and can be ideal for therapy dogs. We love both breeds.
There are no puppies currently available.
This is a puppy from our last litter (NOT "trained" as highlighted in the next section). Most puppies know sit, lay down, their name, a correction command, and some know more along with potty training.
Check out these great videos! The first puppy is from our litter in 2020. The second is from our 2021 litter. The puppies received basic obedience training and are 10 and 11 weeks old in the videos. The puppies are taught basic obedience with voice commands and hand signals. They learned sit, come, lay down, turn, stay, leave it, drop it, go to your mat (bed), loose leash walking, potty training, and good manners. All training is completed with only positive reenforcement.
Let's face it, all puppies are adorable. Our puppies are extra special because of the extra effort we put into each puppy along with all of the health checks on the parents. We start obedience training at 4 weeks old with short 1-5 minute sessions. The puppies are raised in our living room and we work on mouthing/biting along with potty training and manners daily. Most of our puppies no longer mouth/bite and have a huge head start with potty training by 8 weeks. We even work to desensitize the puppies to fireworks, barking dogs, and other household noises. Most breeders have their puppies in a kennel or garage with limited socialization. Puppies are messy and unless someone is constantly watching them (which we are) they can create a smelly mess fast. Our puppies are kept in a clean nurturing environment that we are happy to show you through FaceTime or in person at 6 weeks of age. Our parent dogs have been genetically tested through Embark with the results available to you. Many breeders may claim to have healthy dogs but do not provide the documentation, we are happy to share our health results. When you pick up your puppy from us, it will be amazing to watch a tiny 8 week old puppy run to you when you call his name and sit on command. We offer a lifetime of support and will always take the puppy back if you can no longer care for it. We encourage all puppy parents to keep in touch and love to receive updates and photos.
We agree that you should definitely avoid puppy mills. We do not have a "facility", the puppies are in raised in our home. Puppies are born with no immune system and having strangers come to visit increases the risk of illness for the puppies. At 6 weeks, the puppies get their first round of vaccines and a health check by our vet. Once the puppies receive their vaccines, we welcome scheduled visits. Prior to that, we are always happy to Face Time so that you can see the puppies and where they live. Scams have been on the rise, especially during COVID, we have had puppy parents come to our home to look at the puppies through the picture window but we will not jeopardize the puppies' health with contact prior to 6 weeks.
