Thank you for taking the time to visit our website!
My name is Desiree Fritsch. I have worked at Goldendoodle Acres since 2011. Janece Schommer, the mastermind behind this operation, is my godmother and friend.
I have always had a passion and love for animals. I cannot walk past a dog without smiling and a dire need to pet them. Throughout my life I have had a cat, hermit crabs, snake, hamster, bunnies, chickens, dog, and even a miniature pot belly pig! Yes…A bit eclectic but I loved them all.
Being a part of the Goldendoodle Acres team has been my DREAM career! The best part is seeing the pure bliss of families when they come to pick up their pup. They clearly share the same love for animals. It is truly amazing!
Our pups are so lucky and happy to home to families who will love them unconditionally. Even though we miss each and every pup terribly, we know our joy is contagious, and it is being spread to families one little, tail wagging, fluffy pup at a time.
I was fortunate to be introduced to Goldendoodle Acres by my good friend, Desiree. I came on board in 2019 and have never looked back. As a former caretaker in the medical field, I really enjoy the health and wellness aspect of raising and whelping pups. I love the time I get to spend raising, caring, and teaching these dogs.
Our guardian program allowed me to have 3 golden doodles of my own and I couldn’t be happier. They bring so much joy to my life:)
In addition to the Baxter and Bella training I completed, the hands on, day to day learning has been tremendous. Janece, Bob, and Desiree are a wealth of knowledge! It’s such a treat to continue to learn from them.
Getting to know the families these puppies will be going home to warms my heart. The excitement they have is overwhelming! The feedback we receive from puppy owners is undeniably the best part of my job. It is so rewarding to know that these puppies continue to be loved and cared for as they were when they were with us.
Hello, we are Bob and Janece Schommer and have been married 40 years. We have 2 great kids and live in the beautiful countryside of Neenah, WI on a 20 acre parcel of land and a pond where our dogs love to play!
I fell in love with dogs at a young age as my mother was also a dog breeder. I was helping to whelp puppies by the time I was 8. By the age of 10, I had shown dogs in both conformation and obedience classes and competitions. After college, marriage, and children, I decided to pursue my love of dogs by becoming a good, quality breeder. But what breed? I couldn’t decide. Then, one day while surfing the internet for different dog breeds, I came across a puppy that needed a foster home for 1 year until she was ready to be trained as a service dog. She would be servicing a 5 year old boy with severe medical problems. I jumped at the chance! “Taffy” was the smartest, cutest, most wonderful dog we had ever met! Our whole family adored her and it was very difficult to give her up after that year was over. Turns out, I was told by the trainers at my local dog club that she was a Goldendoodle! I said, “A what?” I had never heard of them but started researching them like crazy. After much searching and reading, I couldn’t find anything negative about the breed and had found so many wonderful things that I made my decision to breed this wonderful hybrid. This has been a very exciting journey for our family. Everyone is involved. My husband, Bob, has been wonderful in designing excellent methods of cleaning the “not so nice” part of the job. Both of the children are involved with socializing and caring for the puppies. Our puppies are in our home for the first 4 weeks of life and are exposed to cats, dogs, people, kids, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, etc. The pups’ temperaments reflect the fact that so much time and attention has been given to their upbringing. I am a firm believer in producing the healthiest dogs possible.
In my opinion, there is no other reason to be a breeder unless you are trying to continually improve the genetics and temperament of the breed. Not only do we strive for great genetics here at Goldendoodle Acres, but temperament plays a huge role in our breeding program as well. I truly enjoy mentoring new breeders who are dedicated to the breed and doing things the right ethical way.
We hope you enjoy your visit on our website and hope to see you here at our home as well!
