Please note that we are in the process of documenting all of of the DNA and radiograph results on ALL of our breeding dogs. It is a very time consuming process. We do not breed any of our dogs without first determining DNA and orthopedic soundness. If results are not indicated here it is only because we have not had time to input the information.
F1 Standard Goldendoodle
Ellie is from the “Fabrics” litter of Dream and Elvis, Jr. She is an F-1 goldendoodle. This means that she is half standard poodle and half golden retriever. Ellie got her name “Cotton” from the fabric theme but the “Ellie” part was later added because she was born into the COVID-19 era of toilet paper wars. Thus, “Cottonelle”, which became, “Cotton- Ellie”.
Ellie has matured into a big girl. She is full grown and weighs 65 lbs. We are working on getting a good photo of Ellie as an adult, but, in the meantime, this picture of her, taken when she was just three months old, greatly shows her sweet personality and beautiful goldendoodle expression.
Ellie is a 4th generation Powder Valley Poodles puppy. So, it is no surprise that she is very sweet, extremely calm and soft-tempered, easy to be around, and yet still playful and engaging. There is not a mean, ornery, aggressive, possessive, fearful or indifferent bone in this girl’s body. She gets along with everybody and everything. The feral barn cats that live on the ranch run when they see Ellie because she is so big. She looks as they run away and appears puzzled and a little upset — like the cats just hurt her feelings by running away from her.
Ellie is an excellent addition to our line up of breeding girls. Her DNA tests came back 100% clear (and that test covers over 280 genetic diseases!) Her cardiac tests came back “Normal” and her hip radiographs show that her hips are better than average. Her hips looked, “Great” as the vet put it.
Ellie’s puppies are showing that they inherit her sweet, friendly and intuitive temperament. They will make great family dogs, children’s playmates, companions for shut -ins and private and public working therapy dogs. And, as long as the service does not require an energetic, active and driven puppy, I think that service dog candidate could also be put into the above potential endeavors for Ellie’s puppies.
We are very proud of our big girl and I know it shows! She is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met.
Meet “Finn” (National Champion Powder Valley Isis’ Grand Finale)
Finn being shown in October, 2021, at the IABCA show in Greeley, CO.
Finn is a graceful, athletic and beautiful standard poodle from Isis and Bandit. Finn is a brown and white parti-color, weighs in at about 65 pounds and will be expecting her first litter in early 2022. A National Champion, Finn is outgoing, confident, and capable. A bit on the serious side, she is very much like her mother, Isis, and her grandmother, Diva — who, by the way, at the age of 13 years is still a very capable working service dog for her person in Loveland, CO.
Finn should produce beautiful, fluid-moving and graceful puppies in many different colors depending on the sire. There is no goofy, high-strung drama when it comes to Finn. She is 100% who she is. Straight forward, no nonsense and serious about her job, whatever it is. Protecting her property, keeping her adopted feral kittens clean, cozy and well-behaved, or showing in a conformation ring. This is not the right dog for everyone. She is seriously smart. But, for the right families, Finn’s puppies will be extraordinary. Beautiful, smart, and very capable.
Finn’s Health Clearances and DNA Traits Include: (Embark)
Finn’s COI is 11%
Finn is DNA “Clear” for the following genetic diseases associated with standard poodles: VWD, PRCD PRA, GM2, DM, NEWS, SLC13A1, IDD
She has been cleared for hip dysplasia by Dr. Charles Mizushima in Wellington, CO. As soon as she is old enough we will get her OFA – Hips.
Finn’s color and coat trait DNA include: Eme, (mask), D Locus (MLPH) DD, bb, spsp, (parti-color), FF (fully furnished), TT (long coat), TT (no shedding), TT (curly coat). Her body size indicators are all Larger.
Cocoa is the beautiful chocolate-colored miniature goldendoodle daughter of Splash Angel and Vinny. She is three quarters poodle and one quarter golden retriever, Cocoa weighs 20 lbs, is very feminine, completely non-shedding and a delight to be around. She is naturally well-behaved and wants only to be with her people and be part of whatever the family is doing. We are very happy to be adding Cocoa babies to our available puppies page in Spring of 2022.
Teddi is a 14 pound athletic and endearing VERY petite miniature goldendoodle from Sachi, (now retired) and Solo. We have to show you Teddi’s baby picture for now because she just had a VERY close haircut and I want her to grow out a little before we do any glamor shots of her!
Teddi is a very smart and very people oriented little girl. She is also very nosy, wanting to get into everybody’s business, adopt (or steal) all of the other mom’s babies (if she could), and greet EVERYBODY enthusiastically when they come to the ranch. She wants to know what is going on in every corner of every acre of the ranch every minute of every day. Thus, her nick name, “Gladys”, after the nosy neighbor character in the old TV show, “Bewitched”.
Teddi is active without being hyper, athletic without needing to prove it every day, affectionate without being clingy and curious about everything. Eric, her guardian, has taught her numerous tricks and she greatly enjoys showing them off. Expect Teddi puppies in the fall of 2022.
Meet, “Dusty Daisy”!
(much better photo coming soon!),
Daisy is the toy-sized (13 lbs.) daughter of Minnie and Vinny. She is an apricot sable toy goldendoodle. Daisy is an active participant in all of her guardian family’s activities. She LOVES playing with (and bossing around) the bigger dogs in the house and is a staunch protector and playmate to the kids. Expect little Dusty Daisy puppies in the fall of 2022.
Twinkles, pictured here as a puppy, is an active, playful and engaging moyen-sized poodle from Isis and Robbie (both now retired). Twinkles weighs 20 lbs and is a wonderful combination of her dad’s outgoing and sweet temperament and her mom’s athleticism and poise. She is a apricot with white markings abstract color and combined with Bodie, our abstract patterned 25 pound miniature goldendoodle stud, should produce some incredible baby goldendoodles averaging around 23 pounds. Look for Twinkles and Bodie babies starting in late Spring of 2022.
Cinnamon is the cute, sweet and playful daughter of our Gabby and Vinny. She is a deep red sable and weighs 11 lbs. She is am American Kennel Club registered miniature poodle. Cinnamon displays all the wonderful traits poodles are known for. She is affectionate, confident, outgoing and playful. She LOVES people and adores children. Her deep red sable color is very attractive and her height and weight make for the PERFECT lap dog — small enough to comfortably fit yet big enough to jump on and off the furniture without help and without being fragile. She is a perfect little poodle.
Meet, “Lily Ann”
Lily Ann is the daughter of our Gabby (now retired) and Vinny. She is an American Kennel Club registered miniature poodle. She is a light apricot sable and weighs about 11 lbs.
Lily Ann is sweet, very family-oriented, (not afraid of strangers — just really prefers her family of mom, dad, human little brother and big sister dog “Dakota” (also a PVP girl) and little sister, “Aspen”, (yet another PVP girl). She is the epitome of the great little family dog. She loves being in a lap while watching tv, but she will also play for long periods with her human little brother and doggie sisters. Usually, intact female dogs do not get along very well — especially when they are in estrus (in season). But, these three; Lily Ann, Dakota and Aspen, are devoted to each other. Lily Ann is not one of the dogs we would take into a show ring, but, we have plenty of gorgeous dogs. Lily Ann is the kind of dog we want to offer to families — a sweet, affectionate, loyal and tolerant little lap dog.
Lily Ann’s Embark DNA tests show that Lily Ann is one of the few purebred dogs of ANY breed that is 100% clear of ALL genetic markers for testable genetic diseases. Her COI is 6% (this is much lower than average and indicates very little inbreeding over many generations).
Additionally, her coat color and coat traits DNA show the following results: Eme. (probable/possible mask on face), KyKy, Intermediate Red Pigmentation Likely, DD, NN, Bb, SS, mm, FF, (fully furnished), CT, TT.
(Shown as a puppy. More recent photo will be posted as soon as she gets a new haircut)
Phoenix is the beautiful standard poodle daughter of Sunny and Houston. She is a red, 45lb. American Kennel Club registered standard poodle and stands about 24 inches at the shoulder. When she fills out I imagine that she will weigh in the neighborhood of 55 lbs. But, like her mom and dad, she may not get there until the age of three or so.
Phoenix is gorgeous, outgoing, playful, a little bit of a goof-ball, (at least for now, but she’s still growing up) and very people oriented. She gets along with EVERYBODY and loves other dogs of all sizes. She is very smart, and very willing to please. In other words — a very typical Powder Valley Poodles standard poodle!
Expect Phoenix babies in the fall or winter on 2022/2023.
Dakota (which, by the way, is a Lakota Indian word that means, “Friend”) is a female, half golden retriever (Elvis, Jr.) and half standard poodle (Tahoe) first generation standard goldendoodle. Tahoe’s adult coat is turning out to be a gorgeous, deep golden red. Tahoe is a big girl and has an even bigger heart. She has an incredibly sweet, calm and steady temperament. Dakota is the type of dog that EVERYONE should have if they’ve got kids — especially if this would be their first dog. Dakota is gentle, naturally well-behaved, quiet, LOVES people (especially kids) and has NEVER met a stranger. As a watch dog she would bomb terribly. But, as a family dog she is the one that EVERYONE in the neighborhood wishes THEY had. An absolute gem.
Dakota’s Health Clearances and DNA Traits Include:

Munchie is the cute and playful daughter of Cous Cous Cootie (now retired) and Robbie. She got her mom’s beautiful phantom black and red color but her dad’s personality. Munchie is very much like her dad, Robbie — playful, outgoing, confident and LOVES people. ANY people. Not a serious bone in this girl’s body — she just wants to have fun, play, be held and be a bit of a goof-ball. This is one happy girl. When life gives you lemons — play with them!
Munchie babies from Vinny will be small miniatures and toys. They will come in all kinds of colors — reds, black, apricots, sable and phantom. The puppies will be playful, outgoing, curious and intuitive. These puppies from Munchie and Vinny will be wonderful, athletic and engaging companions and super affectionate lap dogs. They will be able to paddle board with you in the morning and more than happy to snuggle in for lap time and a movie that night. Expect Munchie babies by Winter, 2020.
Harper is the adorable little mini goldendoodle daughter of Nilla and Robbie. She is three quarters poodle and one quarter golden retriever. Harper is a petite mini goldendoodle only weighing 16 pounds at 18 mo. of age. Harper is athletic, playful, curious and loves everyone and everything she meets. She is our little retriever and she gets a lot of retrieving in when I sit on the couch watching tv while throwing her toys down the hallway.

When you add Vinny’s intuitive and playful personality to the mix you end up with one heck of a great dog! Silver weighs 25 pounds. She is sweet, calmer than most and incredibly biddable. She, like her mother, lives to please and loves EVERYONE. We plan on breeding Silver to Robbie for some incredibly smart, intuitive, sweet and trainable puppies that very well could be extremely colorful. The combination of Silver and Robbie should produce puppies with a very high genetic propensity toward being excellent service, therapy and competitive obedience dogs. And, of course, WONDERFUL and easily lived with family companions and children’s playmates. Look for Silver puppies in mid 2020.
AKC Powder Valley Brazenly Stunning Sunset N the Making

Autumn is the pretty little miniature poodle daughter of our girl Ritz and our red sable boy Vinny. She is a smaller miniature, only weighing 8.5 pounds, but she is lanky and still growing and will most likely mature right over the “Toy Poodle” height limit of 10 inches. Autumn is very, very, sweet. Very affectionate and very tolerant. She loves children and gets along with any dogs she meets. Quite soft in her personality — she isn’t timid at all — but she wants to be accepted by all and treats everyone she meets with respectful attention. From her point of view — EVERYONE is a potential friend and warm lap, and if you ask her to, she will be more than happy to sit there and be petted and talked to. Had a hard day? This little girl will try to take the burden from your shoulders. Respectfully, quietly, and lovingly….
Although Autumn doesn’t have the color, coat, or features desirable in a show dog, her personality, temperament and good genetic health earned her a spot in our breeding program. ANYONE would love a puppy like Autumn….
Kimber – Too
Kimber – Too is our sweet little 9 pound red sable toy goldendoodle — a daughter of Sachi and Vinny. Kimber – Too is a daddy’s girl through and through and loves hanging out with her guardian, Randy and his family. Whether he’s working at his desk or watching tv, Kimber – Too is right there with him, snuggled on his lap or by his feet.

Dolce is the inky black daughter of our beautiful Dandee, (now retired), and Houston. I wanted to keep a girl from Dandee that would be just like her mom — sweet, calm, intuitive and, of course, beautiful. I succeeded with Dolce. She is just as nice as her mom and just as pretty. Her puppies give us gorgeous inky black and red puppies when bred to Bandit that are sweet, calm, focused and easily trained. When bred to one of our goldendoodle studs we get the same thing with a hint of golden retriever gentleness in an equally beautiful but smaller, package. Be looking for your next wonderful family pet, working ESSD service dog or therapy partner from one of Dolce’s litters.
