This page is basically about who we are as the humans who raise your puppies and puppy parents…
My name is Barbara Dearaujo and Dreamydoodle NW is our family run Multigen Labradoodle and Aussiedoodle breeding program…We’re located in Woodland, Washington state 30 mins north from the Portland, Oregon and Washington border.
I am a professional web developer as well as a proud and passionate Multigen Labradoodle and Aussiedoodle dog breeder. My husband Roy and I have three beautiful kids Connor, Tianna and Olivia.
How it all started…
It all started around 2007-2008, I met a Goldendoodle puppy in a park in downtown Portland on my lunch hour and I basically became obsessed with all things Doodle! Labradoodles, Aussiedoodles and Goldendoodles I wanted one of each..yes, I know crazy talk but like I said, Inwas obsessed! We eventually did get two boys 6 months apart!! A beautiful F1 Goldendooodle “Toby” and an one of the coolest dogs I’d ever met an F1 Aussiedoodle “Teddy”.
Both boys totally stole our families hearts!
I organized Doodle meetups on and offline, I ran a Doodle website called Welovedoodles.com for Doodle owners and after much thought and LOTS of late night research I decided I wanted to start my own breeding program but I was NOT really experienced in dog breeding, actually far from it.
So, I asked my Goldendoodle breeder from Big Oak Ranch with 20+ years experience to be my mentor and luckily, she agreed because what a great resource she was for me back then! PRICELESS!
We moved into our house in Woodland from Vancouver, with a bigger yard for our dogs and I started my exhaustive search for the perfect dogs to start my own Labradoodle bloodline.. from “scratch” as you might say or basically from the first generations (F1 and F1B) between just the AKC registered Lab and the Poodle. I wanted to develop my own perfect Labradoodle. The kind of Labradoodle that I would want – MY DREAM DOG!
History of the Dreamydoodle
I started by holding back a female puppy from almost all of my first litters and with the help of the guardian program I was able to expand my breeding program and my bloodline for over 4 generations and now I breed the Multigen Labradoodle, all from the same family of dogs I started my bloodline with.
All my female dogs are still related to my very first and most amazing Poodle female named “Miss Daisy”, who I was so blessed to find from a wonderful breeder in Indiana! I still own Miss Dasiy to this day and even though she is far past retired now she still continues to amaze me daily with all her grandchildren!
I bred Daisy once for Small Standard Poodles and I held back all 3 of her Poodle daughters, Ivy, Abby and Rasta and those girls are who I started my Aussiesoodle bloodline with, which turned out amazing!
We have a very small Standard Aussiedoodle breeding program now but we still plan to do them a couple times a year with my partner.
Our Mini Aussiedoodles
I decided to start a Mini Aussiedoodle bloodline and so, we searched and searched for the perfect Mini Poodle. I never was a huge fan of the Mini Poodle temperament, so I looked for and found a beautiful little Moyen Poodle female we named Molly, and Molly comes from themoyenpoodle.com in Texas!
Molly was a wonderful Mom and a total sweetheart who had the coolest little Aussiedooodle babies but she’s retired now.. luckily, I kept one of her F1 Mini Aussiedoodle daughters “Miss Mya” who’s also produced some of the most adorable mini Aussiedoodles I’ve ever seen!
I also added our Toy Australian Shepherd “Miss Adele” from a champion Mini Austalian Shepherd bloodline in Kalama, Washington. Adele had her first litter in 2018 and they were amazing just like their Mom.
We most recently also added another apricot smaller Moyen Poodle girl named “Peaches” from the same moyen poodle bloodline as Molly! They could be twins…or sisters.. which they actually are!
Don’t confuse “all related” with “inbreeding” or what’s also called “linebreeding” … all my girls are related but I don’t breed my related dogs to eachother. Linebreeding is actually quite common especially in the pure bred dogs, not so much in Doodles…breeders will linebreed because it doubles up on the good traitthathahsbreeders are looking to replicate but it also doubles up on the not so good traits.. and that’s just not a risk I am willing to take.
My number one goal from day one was to only breed the VERY BEST to the VERY BEST and SECOND was to do it without kennels or cages..and maintain a strong focus on temperament and health over color alone.
I was raised on a small cattle and horse ranch as a kid and teen so I had some experience with animal husbandry but I have learned so much more as a dog breeder, and my burning desire to learn more is still alive and well.
I have learned over the years that no matter how experienced a Dog breeder is, they can never claim to “know it all”. It’s totally impossible. Each dog, each puppy, pregnancy, birth and litter is a unique and new experience and I still learn something new with every new litter.
Passing it on..
Now I try to pass on what I’ve learned to others and I’ve mentored several newer breeders over the years myself, including AwesomeDoodle.com who has turned out to be an amazing breeder, and a great mentor himself.
So, you may notice I have alot of pages dedicated to dog breeding on this website as well. I also run a Doodle Breeder Resources group on Facebook. I don’t promote people to start breeding dogs, but if they’re doing it anyway, then I definitely don’t mind sharing what I know that might be useful. It is so important in my opinion that dog breeders share with eachother their advice and expertise, mostly for the dogs and puppies sake because the knowledge dog breeders posses is not taught in schools.
These amazing curly Doodles have brought our family closer together and have brought nothing but JOY and LOVE into our LIVES. Our program is called “Dreamydoodles Northwest” and it has been so much fun not to mention extremely rewarding!!
There is nothing more rewarding then seeing the dogs you’ve had a part in raising, change lives for the better. So when people ask me “how do you say goodbye to your puppies”? While, of course it’s not always easy to say goodbye but it’s so rewarding that it makes it all worth it in the end.
I love my DOODLE-FULL LIFE!

I will do Everything within my Power to breed you a Great Puppy, but it’s up to you to raise a Good Dog!
We have a very active Facebook with daily updates so make sure to check out DreamydoodlesNW on Facebook because if you don’t you’re missing out on half of what makes us who we are.. an extended family of Dog lovers! Read our Facebook Reviews!
Our life revolves around our dogs and they make us smile and laugh everyday. There is nothing better then a dog.
I honestly believe animals and children teach us about unconditional love.. they’re both a blessing and should be treated as such. How a person treats their animals.. tells you a lot about their hearts.
Owning Doodles has been a blessing to our whole family.
Dogs make you smile and laugh, they’re loyal till the end and they just want to be loved by you, they don’t argue or fight with you or call you names, they accept you for who you are, an imperfect human and they still love everything about you.
- A Clear line of health – we attempt to screen out genetic disease such as hip and elbow dysplasia, cardiac and PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) using the genetic testing that is currently available.
- Well socialized puppies – each puppy is exposed from day one to a fun, family environment that encourages calm, mellow behavior. Group and one-on-one socialization, tolerance of sudden and loud noises, human handling, child play, alone-time, and adaptation to as many everyday family activities as possible; preliminary potty and crate training.
- Sweet Temperaments – This is one of the most important things we strive for.. Happy and playful, yet mellow and gentle; highly intelligent and easily trained; enthusiastic; graceful; athletic with agility, spunk, and spring.
- Superior features – a silky soft Fleece coat that’s non to very low shedding with virtually no dander for our families who are allergy-prone. Less Dander also equals NO doggy smell and a cleaner house! A coat weight that’s not too thick or too curly for easier care and less matting.
- Health Clearance – All our dogs have genetic testing and also come from a long line of tested parents.
- Commitment – we are committed to you and your puppy – and will be available long after you take your puppy home. We’re here to help you with potty training, food & diet questions, obedience training or basically anything you might need some help with.
- Sense of Family – We appreciate it when our families stay in touch with us over the years and we also LOVE all the family update pictures which we share on Facebook! Check out our Dreamydoodle Family Program on Facebook!

Olivia has helped me so much over the years!! She has a great passion for animals just like her Mom and was basically raised in a puppy pool. She is actually 14 years old now..

All the kids have been a great help and to this day still help with the dogs and puppies – my son is 21 now and my oldest daughter is 20!! Crazy how time flies!
