A heartwarming moment within the Apricot Poodles & Goldendoodles family, reflecting our dedication and love.
Meet the faces behind Apricot Poodles & Goldendoodles in Murrieta, CA, a family passionate about breeding excellence.
Our family's commitment to raising healthy and happy puppies shines through in every interaction.

My name is Ashley. I have lived in Southern California my whole life. I started my carrier in nursing 16 years ago and still work as a nurse Per Diem. 

My husband Rob is my partner in our breeding business and is the "constant" at our home with the puppies the days I am working. Two of our three children are homeschooled and enjoy having "puppy time" as it has become known as in our home!

I am a home groomer for our three poodles and our momma Goldendoodles who visit us. I am self-taught and have been grooming for 4 years. Recently helped create a instruction course called "Groom Your Doodle". Check it out here:

What makes our business stay small while continuing to grow is our use of Guardian Homes. We carefully choose families for our potential breeding dogs.We then match our dogs with families who receive a free dog, who will be theirs alone once the dog is done breeding. We LOVE and depend on our Guardian homes and they often become close friends!

The business of breeding is something that takes a lot of time, work and forsight. Future puppy families benefit from my passion for dogs and learning!

A snapshot of the Apricot Poodles & Goldendoodles family, dedicated to providing furry companions for your family.

Our love for poodles started due to family allergies to dogs and cats. We didn’t have many options for pets. We welcomed Bailey and can’t imagine life without her. Our children will grow up knowing her attempts at wrestling with them, treating them like little puppies as she pretended to nibble their ears and necks. She is a wonderful family dog and we often joke that she thinks she is human.


We continue to share this same joy with other families who may have pet dander allergies (or just love the poodle temperament and intelligence). Bailey is retired but we have many wonderful breeding dogs. We have expanding our breeding program to involve twelve breeding dogs and 6 guardian homes and are excited to start offering 5-6 litters a year.
