Hey y’all! We are Amanda and Andy Shelton out of the North Metro Atlanta area of Georgia. We have a combined 10+ years of breeding experience, and we are pretty passionate and proud of the program we’ve built. Our program started 11 years ago after falling in love with the breed, we were not happy with the puppies/breeders of Goldendoodles we found, there seemed to lack transparency, and the dogs never seemed to be the biggest priority- so we set out to change this. After much research we bred our Goldendoodle, Annie, and acquired Grace, our matriarch. Our goal from day one was to produce a dog that loves everyone, is well equipped from an early age to handle different situations, and fits in with their family. We are a family first, striving to provide other families with the true gift of the power and privilege of a dog. All our pups are hand raised in our home with our 5 children and 3 adult dogs. While many breeders sell their breeding “stock” after retirement, our pups are our family and will remain that way for their entire lives. We do not have a separate outdoor kennel with several breeding dogs and do not want one. Because of this, we grow our program through the use of Guardian homes. Guardian homes are close friends and family hand chosen by us to raise and care for a breeding boy or girl in our program. We get to see our pup several times throughout the year, and the pup will return to us and “the family” for whelping.
We pride ourselves in producing the healthiest, socially adjusted, beautifully colored Goldendoodles possible. We offer a very tight knit Southern Skies Doodles community, with very active Facebook groups for each litter, birthday parties and get togethers, even select boarding available only to our pup Pawrents. We hope you will become part of the Southern Skies Doodles Family!
