Our Team


Candice’s love of animals began when she was a child in Northern BC. After she and Bill were married they raised and showed Rough Collies for a number of years. After hearing about and being intrigued by Goldendoodles they got Peaches, a female mini Goldendoodle and Fez, a miniature male poodle.

They had their 1st litter of Goldendoodles in the summer of 2007 and Ooodles of Doodles was born. They then began slowly growing and in 2014 Candice decided to devote all her energy to raising quality Goldendoodles.

Candice has always been a trendsetter, recognizing what appeals to people seeking a quality puppy and has successfully been able to obtain top quality breeding stock. She no longer needs to seek out female breeding dogs as she keeps back ones that she has raised as replacements and has an eye for what puppies have the characteristics she likes.

She has developed a successful Guardian Home program which ensures all her breeding dogs are pets first and have their own families to care for them and they are all retired at a young age.

Candice has brought happiness to many families with puppies she has raised and she has had lots of repeat customers. Her passion for raising top quality dogs and compassion for people has made her one of the top Doodle breeders and her puppies are in homes across Canada and the US.
