Doodles Make it Better.



Hillcrest Doodles is a small breeding program owned by Ann and Jesse Pacheco.  After more than 40 years as business owners we moved from Visalia to Arroyo Grande on the beautiful California Central Coast.  This is a dream come true for us!  We enjoy breeding Australian Labradoodles and carefully select and health test all of our breeding dogs.  We have two mini labradoodles that are our pets, and a few breeding dogs that live full time with guardian families.  Puppies are whelped in our home, nurtured and socialized. We delight in each puppy and enjoy watching their physical development and personalities bloom.  We're so grateful for the decades of research and development of this wonderful breed.   We're dedicated to responsible breeding with integrity and strive for healthy pups with balanced temperaments, correct conformation and luxurious non-shedding fleece coats. 



Our experience with animals has been life long.  Raising our three children while living in the country on acreage created many memories and experiences that we'll cherish for our lifetime. Our kids grew up riding and competing in horse competitions and showing sheep in 4-H.  We raised chicken, goats, cows, and rabbits and always had three or four dogs.  Dogs have always been of our lives and we were known to take in more than our share of stray dogs and re-homed them.  Eventually our kids grew up, then we found ourselves with an empty nest, and so began our search for the perfect canine companion.  We had a long list of criteria.  We wanted a dog that was not to big or too small, non-shedding, easy to train, friendly and must be good with grandkids!  After countless hours of research we discovered and fell in love with the Australian Labradoodle, and the passion for these exceptional dogs only grew from there.  Our four decades of experience as business owners has proven helpful in the development and operation of our breeding program.
