We are so excited to have this beautiful girl join our family. We have plans for Tilly to be our future mamma, once her health testing is complete. She is so much fun! She is calm, smart, and loves everyone.

"We feel so fortunate to have been referred to Lisa! Colby, our Golden Doodle, has recently reached the one year mark and he has given us so much love and joy - along with everyone who meets him. Lisa, Mike and their family have been so very helpful to us and we would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a new family member. Colby has such a wonderful personality and has most definitely exceeded our expectations."

"I got dexter from Riverside Doodles and I’m so in love! He completely exceeded all of my expectations with his amazing personality and how smart he is. He has brought so much joy into my life and I hope he is able to do the same to others once trained as a therapy pet. Thank you so much for this perfect match, Lisa!"

"Meeting Lisa and her family have changed our lives in all of the best ways. Not only because she gave us our newest addition to our own family, but also because of how kind and trustworthy she is. She’s reliable, dependable, with a kind and gentle heart. We are so thankful for Lisa because she truly bettered our world the day she gave us Lily. We knew her puppies were well-cared for, and it showed in how loving and adaptable Lily was the first time we brought her home. She even gave us a gift bag with Lily’s puppy blanket and toys she uses to this day. She went above and beyond for us, we’re so blessed to have chosen her as a breeder for our first puppy :)"

"We love our new addition to the family! Arlo is such a sweet, smart, well behaved, and loving dog. We can’t thank Lisa enough for the hard work and dedication she puts into breeding and caring for her pups. She was accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process which made it an exciting and positive experience for us. We are constantly stopped on the street and asked who we got Arlo from, and we happily reply “Riverside Doodles”! Keep up the great work Lisa!"

"Murphy is doing fantastic! He is healthy and happy and his excitement to meet other people and dogs is energizing. Our vet commented on his demeanour during our first visit, and many people are shocked he’s only four and half months because he is so relaxed and thrives in new environments. We couldn’t be more thrilled!"

"[Coco's] personality is unlike any other dog I've ever known. She absolutely loves the world and everybody in it! She jumps up in my clients lap as they are getting their hair done. She is a complete snuggle bug. She is really smart, sweet tempered and very tenacious. She has the eyes of an old soul, eyes that look right through you! She is always happy and wakes you up every morning with kisses. I could not have asked for a better dog! She has quickly become the love of our lives! Thank you for this precious little puppy, who I think was put on this earth to make people happy! I am going to register as a therapy dog in the near future."
