Heartland Labradoodles do a an excellent job raising their puppies. It was clear from getting to know them when we visited on several occasions that they love their dogs. We have had Tillie for just over a year now and she has been nothing but a joy. She is very intelligent and wants to please. She loves people and other dogs. She loves to play and knows the names of her different toys. She still waits at the kitchen door until given permission to eat, something she was taught as a puppy before we got her.
