Beasley Doodles is a Missouri state licensed and inspected breeder located on just under 3 acres at the end of a subdivision outside Jefferson City, Mo where there is ample room for our handful of dogs in the fenced yard and secluded back woods where they can get some exercise safely away from any dangerous traffic.
I, Baylee, am 31 years old and began breeding Goldendoodles as my FFA project when I was 15. I have a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science from the University of Missouri-Columbia and am currently attending as a non-degree seeking graduate student with plans to apply to veterinary school within the next year, upon the completion of checking every little box on the very long checklist of things required to do so. My mom is a vet and I grew up helping her care for both large and small animals in her mobile mixed practice. Since I moved away to school, I have worked in several small animal practices in the area over the years.
I can't do this all alone. Several members of my family help out with the dogs. First and foremost my poor husband, Shado, does a lot of the grunt work (gravel doesn't move itself). My son and the neighbor kids are on puppy socialization duty. My mom does a lot of my vet work and is a guardian for a couple of the program dogs. My cousin Odessa used to be very involved when she lived here and we were both going to school. She has since created her own little family but helps out as she can. Mostly as a guardian home for Dude but she understands better than anyone else and is excellent to call up for a problem solving session. My sister SchanDona, cousin Donald and cousin Olivia also help out as guardians for some of the dogs.
I had my first litter of Goldendoodles on Valentine's Day 2007, I had my first litter of Standard Poodles in April of 2010 and my first litter of Aussiedoodles in May 2011 (Note: I no longer breed Aussiedoodles). My original two dogs I began breeding with were my Golden female, Suzy (deceased), and my Standard male, Apollo, also now deceased. Their profiles are on the "Retired" page if you are curious. Apollo's descendants are still being used in the program today.
My dogs are bred with the intention of providing a high quality pet with a loving, gentle personality and a non-shedding quality. I strive to give every dog personal attention and love so that they are stable, happy, healthy, and confident individuals.
The production and sale of these puppies provided me with a very good FFA project which awarded me the following degrees and awards for my effort during my FFA career:
1) Proficiency Award in Small Animal Production and Care in 2008
2) Proficiency Award in Emerging Agricultural Technology (for the website) in 2009
3) The Chapter Star Award in 2009.
4) I received my State FFA Degree at the 2010 Missouri State Convention.
5) A Profiecency Award in Agricultural Sales in 2010.
6) State Profiecency Winner in Small Animal Production and Care in 2011
7) Silver Rating at Nationals in Small Animal Production and Care 2011
FFA Honors at graduation.
I was also chapter secretary and vice president. I failed to finish my last 6 months of records and did not get my National FFA degree. Basically because I forgot I guess. I should have done it.....I was so close....
