Notch Hill Labradoodles is a small, family-owned breeder located in Southern British Columbia, approximately 4 hours away from Vancouver. My name is Carol and I live with my husband, son, and dogs in Sorrento, near Shuswap Lake. Our dogs enjoy romping over more than 1.5 acres of land, where they are free to relax in the summer sun and play in the winter snow.
We started this adventure after meeting a Labradoodle during a trip to Australia. I have always been passionate about dogs, but nothing prepared me for the love I would find for Labradoodles. After researching the breed, I discovered that they are more than just the perfect pets. They are also outstanding service/therapy dogs. At that moment, I knew that I wanted to bring this amazing breed into our home and contribute to its development.
In addition to our Labradoodles, we also have two Golden Retrievers and a Lhasa Apso. Roxy, our Lhasa Apso, is the one who inspired me to think about raising therapy dogs. It’s so rewarding to see people respond to her with welcome smiles and heartwarming affection. We’re looking forward to debuting our first Labradoodle therapy dogs in the coming years.
My husband owns a residential construction company and together we have raised three children. Two are married, and we’ve been blessed with four grandchildren. We have a “normal” busy household, filled with fun and day-to-day activities. Our dogs are raised inside our home with lots of socialization, attention, and love.
We can’t imagine life without these wonderful animals. We look forward to sharing our dogs with you and your family.
