About Us



Cali Pals is a mother/daughter company. We have been in business for over 12 years. The goal with our breeding program is to breed Service Dog quality pups for people with Disabilities. Our focus is to help families  train their own Service Dog or provide families with a well bred, easy to train puppy as their family pet. Our puppies make amazing Therapy Dogs, Emotional Support Dogs, or Facility Dogs.


We have very high standards for our breeding program, we don't just breed any dog that becomes available. We take the time to make sure they are going to pass down quality traits that are useful in all the things discussed above.  Our Goldendoodles are loving companions who work wonders for their people! We hear stories that just blow us away!!  


Cali Pals currently breeds Multigenerational Goldendoodles. We love the Goldendoodles calm temperament, their willing to please trainability, and their family dog values. Some generations don't shed and are sometimes hypoallergenic, making it possible for people with mild allergies to obtain one of our puppies. (We do not guarantee our dogs to be hypoallergenic, if you have allergies please make us aware of this before deciding to purchase one of our amazing puppies)


** Please note that if you are interested in a Service Dog, you must qualify with a Disability to do so. We require a doctors note stating you would benefit from having a Service Dog due to your Disability. 


We are located in Hollister, CA. We operate on a 5 ace ranch. Cali Pals has been operating since 2010. We have trained and placed many successful Service Dogs, Trained Pet Dogs, and puppies. 

We hope you enjoyed learning about our program and we look forward to helping you find your perfect companion!
