Shelley & Sydney

Hi! We are Shelley and Sydney. A mother daughter duo who found a way to combine our love for dogs and our need to be together all the time.

Shelley is mom to 2 kids, Sydney and Samuel, a wife to Barry, her high school sweetheart, and a dog mom to Coffee, Gus, Lucy, Stevie, and Greta. Sydney is a wife to Tyler, her middle school sweetheart, mom to her daughters Alice & Annie, and dog mom to Moose and Violet.

We both have encountered the power of a dog and the healing and fulfillment they can bring to your life. After meeting several doodles from friends and family around us, we decided to get doodles of our own and start on this new adventure of breeding in 2018. It has been the boldest and best decision we have ever made. We are hopeful that you will join our Red Door Canine family and get to experience the daily love and joy that we do from these amazing dogs. 

Partners & Certifications

Embracing the pioneering “Badass Breeder” curriculum by Jeannette Forrey underscores our commitment to nurturing puppies with the utmost care and expertise at Red Door Canines. By adhering to this advanced approach, we tailor our puppy-raising process to their crucial developmental phases. Through systematic exposure to various stimuli in a controlled setting, we ensure that our puppies develop reduced fear responses and heightened self-assurance, setting the stage for a lifetime of happy, confident companionship with you.

We’re thrilled to join forces with Baxter and Bella Online Puppy School to offer our puppy owners an exceptional training resource. This partnership equips our puppy families with the tools and guidance they need to nurture a strong foundation of obedience and communication, ensuring a seamless integration of their new furry family member into their lives.

As certified puppy evaluators, we at Red Door Canines pride ourselves on being advocates for our puppies throughout the placement process. Our commitment to evaluating each puppy’s temperament across 12 distinct traits allows us to expertly match them with their perfect families. This personalized approach ensures that every puppy finds a home where their unique personality shines, fostering a harmonious and lifelong bond between them and their new families. 

By conducting thorough Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) assessments, we guarantee that the parents of our puppies are free from hereditary orthopedic issues, fostering a lineage of healthy and happy pups for our cherished puppy families. Your puppy’s future starts with healthy beginnings, and our commitment to OFA testing reflects our dedication to that fundamental principle.

A technology created by Dr. Kent Wallace, eVet is an OFA alternative when time is of the essence. eVet provides a way for veternarians to have expert radiology services with a 24-48 hour turn around time following OFA guidelines.

Embark testing is an integral part of our commitment to providing you with the best possible puppy experience at Red Door Canines. By conducting comprehensive DNA testing through Embark, we gain valuable insights into the genetic health and heritage of our adult dogs. This advanced screening allows us to ensure the well-being of our furry family members and enables us to make informed breeding decisions, ultimately resulting in healthier and happier puppies for you and your family to cherish.
