Hi, my name is Stefani and I am the owner/founder of Ocean State Labradoodles. I have been a dog lover all of my life, and always had a dream that one day, I would work in a field that involved animals in some capacity, especially dogs! Whoever says dreams don’t come true is surely mistaken! While I had a successful career in the corporate world for many years, I always felt that there was something missing along the way. I fell in love with the Australian Labradoodle breed in 2002, and purchased my first Labradoodle as a family pet. After having her for just a year, I was head over heels in love and couldn’t get the thought of wanting another one out of my head! I spent a few years doing extensive research on the Australian Labradoodle breed, genetics and health, as well as extensive research on breeding in general, and I just knew that breeding Australian Labradoodles was something I really wanted to pursue. I purchased my first breeding female to start this journey in 2005, and the rest was history! OSL was founded and my dream and passion became a reality!
Our first litter of labradoodles arrived in 2007. In 2009 I made the decision to hang up my business attire to pursue a life long passion! I couldn’t be happier with my decision, and have been enjoying every second of this fulfilling chapter in my life! I chose the Australian Labradoodle because they are wonderful family companions with fantastic temperaments and the most loving and soulful dispositions. They are excellent for families with allergies, and (although it can not be guaranteed) there is a very low to no chance of shedding in the Australian Labradoodle. I hope to bring as much joy, happiness, and laughter to your life with an OSL Australian Multi-Generation Labradoodle puppy as they have brought to mine! I look forward to hearing from you !
The heart and soul of OSL!
Lori has been with OSL since our inception in 2007. As our Operations Manager, she is the glue that helps hold OSL together!
Lori has a Masters Degree in Counseling, and after a successful career in the Mental Health field, she fell in love with the Labradoodles and followed her heart to begin her journey with OSL and has never been happier! Lori is the resident doodle midwife, and has never missed a single opportunity to birth a litter since our very first litter. She works closely with our guardian families, assists in breedings, and even shares her bedroom with each & every litter that is born. We call Lori the Doodle Whisperer! Her sweet, calm, and compassionate demeanor is shared with every labradoodle she comes in contact with. We are so blessed and grateful to have Lori on our team, and her hard work and dedication to our pups and breeding dog shows in the happiness of every pup/dog we produce!
