Mountain Rose Sheepadoodles
Mountain Rose Sheepadoodles
Mountain Rose Sheepadoodles is an experienced Sheepadoodle breeder and professional trainer. Our home is in Northern Utah and our reach is throughout the world! Originally founded by Richard & Becky Poppe, Mountain Rose has expanded and is now co-owned by our grown children, all of us being extreme dog lovers.
We have several locations (our family homes) in Utah. We also own a small ranch and an 8,000 sq ft indoor training facility located in the Wasatch Mountains.
Richard Poppe is the manager and driving force behind Mountain Rose. Richard's experience with dogs goes back over 40+ years. He was heavily influenced by his Mother (Peggy Poppe), a professional breeder, trainer, and handler of high caliber show dogs. Richard had the wonderful opportunity while growing up to attend a vast number of dog events and dog shows where he watched his mother attain great success and notoriety. Richard gives his Mother credit for much of the genuine love and enthusiasm he has for his dogs. Of course, this has now been passed along to our children and our young grandchildren as well... Thanks, Mom!
We first became attached to the Sheepadoodle breed after having been contracted to train several Sheepadoodles from another breeder a while back. Because we already owned and bred Old English Sheepdogs (Border Collies too), and because Mountain Rose also trains ADA certified service dogs specializing in PTSD and therapy work, we quickly recognized the benefits of this breed. Above all else, the benefits include their superior intuitive nature. They have this amazing ability to quickly sense emotions and moods in people. This is something that can not be taught to a dog but must come naturally. They must be born with this gift. For this reason, we now give the Sheepadoodle breed our highest rating for PTSD and therapy work specifically. Second to that is the Bordoodle who really excels primarily as a mobility assistance service dog. Yes, we love bordoodles too :)
Special Sheepadoodle Bloodlines.
As a serious Sheepadoodle breeder and professional trainer, we're so very proud to raise some of the most elite Sheepadoodles found anywhere. We are one of the few Sheepadoodle breeders in the United States to have previously bred and raised the most elite purebred Old English Sheepdogs from exclusive European bloodlines. As such, you will notice that our Old English Sheepdog parents are exceptionally gorgeous (a little shorter muzzle and slightly wider set eyes) and have full tails (not docked or bobbed). This gorgeous physical attribute passes right along to their Sheepadoodle offspring. See our Photo Gallery
Our Dogs Live "the Good Life".
Mountain Rose Sheepadoodles live the good life! Our dogs accompany us on our various activities around our properties throughout the day. They just love being around our other animals, which include goats, horses, and cows. Our dogs love to go with us on rides in the truck, horseback excursions, snowmobiling, biking, and hiking in the mountains. Every day in the late afternoon, weather permitting, we take our dogs off-leash into the mountains directly behind our property. We love it and so do they! Our dogs are a true joy and a loving part of our entire family!
