About Our Breeding Program:


Cali Pals breeds Goldendoodles. We also specialize in Service Dog training, as the owner of Cali Pals is a Certified Service Dog Trainer. We help families train their own Service Dogs. We want our puppies to help as many people as possible. Our puppies are calm, sweet, and smart. They love attention and to be loved on by all.


All of our puppies are raised around children & people of all ages, other dogs, cats, and sometimes livestock. They are raised both indoors & outdoors, promoting healthy potty training skills. They begin crate training around 6 weeks old, making crate training easier on the families. Puppies are also temperament tested and chosen by their families at 6 weeks old. Temperament testing the litter gives us an idea of who would work best as a Service Dog, Therapy Dog or a Pet Dog. We give the families as much feed back as possible to help make their decision easier. (Because it's so hard choosing between all of these adorable puppies!)

All of our breeding dogs live with Guardian Families or with us as our personal pets. This means our breeding dogs live with families and come back to us when it is time for breeding. We do not keep our dogs locked in kennels, they are loved companions able to enjoy a normal life with their family while not being used for breeding. 


Cali Pals goal is to raise our puppies from birth using positive training technics to ensure the entire litter is developing into smart, well socialized, and loving companions. 


Cali Pals does not guarantee our puppies to be hypoallergenic. Sometimes there can be a puppy in each litter that takes after the Golden or Lab more then the Poodle. The straighter the coat the less of a chance it will be hypoallergenic and will most likely shed. 

ALL of the photos on our website are our personal dogs taken by ourselves or their families. 


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!
