About Us

cindy-imgCindy Hancock has selected her Doodle parents from the healthiest, kindest and most trainable of the dogs to be considered at her kennel. First generation crosses (F1) and F1b will be available now with multi-generation crosses (F2). There will be some cross backs to poodles to obtain a more hypo-allergenic coat.

Cindy Hancock of CH Kennels has been breeding, raising and training Golden Retrievers for 25 years. During her 30 years as a professional breeder, Cindy has also raised, owned, and trained Labradors and Poodles. Intrigued by the development of this new breed, Cindy researched, studied and came to the conclusion that this was truly a wonderful combination and she endeavored to breed some specially chosen dogs and produce Doodles.

Several of the Golden Retriever puppies who were born at CH Kennels are used for therapy dogs. The origin of “Doodles” is found in Australia where they were originally bred as a service dog for disabled persons. In keeping with this important public service CH Kennel donates one puppy per year to be raised by a foster family and trained as a service/companion dog. Cindy has donated puppies to a ranch for abused children that rehabilitates kids through the love and nurturing of special animals. Cindy has also taught dog obedience and helped owners with “problem” dogs, having earned several trophies through the years.

Cindy has an extensive background in the field of animal health, having studied Animal Science at California Polytechnic State University, and worked in the veterinary field for more than 15 years. She is dedicated to producing GoldenDoodles and Labradoodles puppies that will make wonderful companions for responsible families.

CH Kennels Doodle parents are AKC registered and many have outstanding champion bloodlines. Their Doodle offspring will be registered with the CKC, UKC and APR. Her dogs excel in obedience, agility, flyball and other canine activities. Cindy has also been involved in local 4H clubs as a leader in dog care, and can usually offer a small discount to children in 4H dog groups. Children from the 4H group help tremendously with the socialization of the puppies born at CH Kennels.

Cindy’s dogs are firsthand members of her family. They live with her in her home when they are old enough they have free run of vast pastures at the ranch but the poodles always sleep in the house! All Cindy’s dogs are registered, obedience trained, house broken and are often found following her on the trail rides with the horses.

Cindy’s Ranch, located in beautiful rural Washington State near Spokane, is an oasis for her Goldens. They are free to run, play and swim in the great outdoors; the perfect life for GoldenDoodles and Labradoodles.
