Part of our Family,
Until they are a part of yours.
Welcome to magic valley family doodles!

We are Fonda Thompson and Kimberly Hatch--two separate households that have teamed up to provide the best possible start to what we think are the best possible family companions.

Our puppies are part of our families until they are part of yours.  More about us here! 

What sets us apart and makes us different ?
  • We put health and temperament first.

  • We are intentional with the way we raise our babies, incorporating some of the best well known techniques and methods used in the industry. We are continually educating ourselves and working towards improving upon what we already know from over 20 years of combined experience as breeders.  We are always researching, taking online classes, and reading the newest information about the best possible breeding practice.  Our main focus is using our own program we have developed over the years that is primarily focused on raising solid family friendly companion dogs.

  • We follow our own well researched and practiced method of whelping, raising and socializing our puppies.  We have been inspired by the Puppy Culture program, Baxter and Bella's program, work done by Ian Dunbar, BABS, and many other great dog training experts.

  • We have our puppies accustomed to using a dog door to go potty outside and we like them to be comfortable with a crate before they go home.  

  • We also follow careful protocols to make sure that they are exposed to enough stimuli and experiences to help develop resilient nervous systems.  All of the puppies grow up being held, loved and played with by our children and families Daily. That is an experience that just can't be duplicated.

  • Perfect "Magic" doodles don't just happen by chance. We breed quality intentional bred Multigenerational doodles.  We have very selectively and intentionally breed our doodles down in size over several generations helping to produce more predictability in size.  Predictability in size, is not the only thing we've work many years towards producing.  We are selctive with our parents temperament, coat, structure, and health.  I always say "we breed for predictability and predictability is what we get".   Our doodles in general are typically very similar to each other in all of these traits.

  • We also follow careful medical standards to help make sure our moms and babies are as healthy and disease resilient as possible. 

Highlights about our program
  • We only breed Multigenerational (doodle x doodle)  due to their higher non-shed success rate and more predictability with size and coat.

  • We work with families to place puppies based to best fit for temperament and size.

  • Our puppies go home when they are 8 weeks of age and have current deworming, are up to date on vaccinations, and have been checked out with a exam by our a vet.

  • Our puppies learn how to use a doggie door around 5 and 6 weeks of age and are going potty outside by the time they go home.

  • We provide a positive experience to a crate by exposing them to the crate beginning when they are 5 weeks old.

  • We start teaching puppies “Mand” (a sitting behavior they "offer" when approached) around  6 and 7 weeks of age.

  • When keep dew claws intact and do not remove them.  Read more about this here..

I'm Kimberly Hatch.  As parents of twins, teens and tweens we are a busy family.  We have always lived with dogs. From our first rescued-off-the-street miniature Schnauzer, to our sweet high energy beagle Molly, to our giant softie Beau (Golden Retriever), and our current two sweet goldendoodles we have had experience with just about every type of personality, coat requirement and energy level.  

After Molly suddenly died, we began our search again for the perfect family dog.  We needed trainable, loyal, patient and friendly with a sturdy bone structure (five boys in our family!) and moderate energy level.  We also wanted  to have a low maintenance, non-shedding coat.  As we searched the world of pure bred dogs, we realized that there just isn't such a dog. The Golden Retriever fit every one of our requirements except for the coat, so we picked the perfect Golden Retriever mom (Cloe) and went to pick out our favorite girl. However, when we went to see the litter, a little pudgy boy puppy picked us out!  The little pup sat so attentively at Rustin's feet--I couldn't say no to a dog who obviously had such good taste.  So we came home with a boy! 

We have found that our Golden Retriever Beau was perfect in every way--except for the hair (HAIR!) and super giant (95 lbs!) size.  We adjusted to the hair (mostly...) but we hated that we couldn't take Beau with us on more outings.  There just wasn't enough room in the car.

When we met my brother's miniature Goldendoodle, Penny, we realized what a perfect breed the Goldendoodle is for a family.  Low to non-shedding coat, great sturdy, healthy bone structure, smart, trainable, playful personality in a smaller package-- exactly what we had been searching for! We helped the Thompsons with their first litter of golden doodles and we loved them just as much as we had hoped!

When we met our first goldendoodle we realized we found our perfect dog and we've been loving goldendoodles ever since. We've been raising and training puppies for almost twenty years and we've been premier goldendoodle breeders for more than a decade.  

My name is Fonda Thompson. My family and I live in Twin Falls, Idaho. We have 5 children: Nicholas, Drew, Kennedy, Hayden and Gentry. Needless to say our house is always very busy and full of activity and excitement. This is exactly why we initially chose Golden Retrievers as our companions. They are so flexible and open to change! There are so many people coming and going in our home--relatives visiting, kids playing, crawling babies, bouncy toddlers and ruff- housing teenagers--that we needed a dog who would be able to cope with all the action and not become too agitated but would be friendly with everyone. Cloe (our first Goldendoodle mother) was the epitome of her breed--so beautiful and friendly. 

After raising two litters of Cloe's wonderful Golden Retriever puppies, I decided for her final litter I would do a little exploring and I did a lot of research on the 'Goldendoodle.' I was interested in the 'lower shedding' factor of the cross between a golden and a poodle. The intelligence and dedication of the Standard Poodle breed mixed with the people friendly Golden Retriever has shown to produce a great family friendly dog. We fell in love with our litter of little doodles.  While I whelped my first litter of Goldendoodles, the breed became a passion of mine and still is today.  I enjoyed it so much that I began to do more research on health testing and found our first English Golden Retriever to begin to build a breeding program.   We are working hard as a family to create dogs that will help everybody experience the joy of a great family dog.
