Who we areഀ ഀ
MEET THE FOUNDER... MEET SOPHIEഀ ഀ
I didn’t set out to beഀ
a dog breeder. I grew up on this farm in the Outaouaisഀ
valley. Cows, horses and of course a LOT of dogs were my childhood companions.ഀ
I guess a lot of little girls dream of becoming a veterinarian, a nurse or aഀ
police officer at some point, and I was no exception. After my parents took meഀ
to see the RCMP Musical Ride, I knew I would one day find myself riding theseഀ
beautiful black horses.
ഀ When I went to University, I sidetracked into psychology, then explored theഀ world of archeology and finally ended up applying to become a RCMP officer.ഀ This meant a lot of transfers, travels and dealing with law infractions,ഀ including animal cruelty cases. Time and time again, I visited anonymousഀ kennels. It never failed - the kennels were dirty, dogs were sick,ഀ overpopulated, left in cages and uncared for. My coworkers hearts were broken,ഀ and so was mine.
ഀ It came to me in 2000 in one of those “a-ha” moments. I couldnഀ t change the world but, I could certainly try and do my share. I finally knewഀ what I had to do. I started planning a dream estate for dogs, where they couldഀ run free, be loved, pampered and cared for and still produce high end designerഀ dogs. I purchased Red Dog Stable in 2003 after completing my last tour of dutyഀ with the RCMP Musical ride. After retiring from the RCMP, I decided to expendഀ Red Dog Stable and established Red Dog Canine Center Inc.
ഀ I would like to thank all of our faithful and loyal clients that have helpedഀ make Red Dog Canine Center Inc the family it is today.
IT'S ABOUT FAMILY. WE CARE. A LOT.ഀ ഀ
It’s about family, WEഀ
CARE. A LOT. We are a family-owned and operated company placing a premium onഀ
professional care, exquisitely appointed facilities and unique services. Inഀ
business since 2000, we have grown to include Goldendoodles, Sheepadoodles and Irish Doodles.
ഀ Our breeding facility is family oriented and selective. Our main objective isഀ the quality of breeding instead of quantity of available puppies. Our puppiesഀ are born under close supervisor in a sanitized, designated whelping area whichഀ converts as they grow into a larger atrium, and have full access to an outdoorഀ obstacle course to further expend their socialization.
ഀ Our breeding dogs reside in their homes with their families and only come to usഀ for breeding.
