Knapp Kennels Goldendoodles - Golden Retrievers & Goldendoodles
About Us                                                                  
We are located in Southern Illinois, about 90 miles east of St. Louis in a very small town called Xenia.  My husband started raising Elhew Bird Dogs about 20 years ago as a hobby, and I have always had Golden Retrievers as pets.
I decided to do some breeding of my own and until last year (2007), I only bred and sold registered Golden Retrievers.  I really did not think there was a better family dog to have.  A breeder friend of mine introduced me to GOLDENDOODLES and at first I was not interested.  Actually, I was surprised that he thought he had found a breed of dog better than Retrievers.  It only took one trip to his kennel to convince me otherwise.
I had my first litter of "DOODLES" in the spring of 2007 and thoroughly enjoyed them.  They display a temperament that is more relaxed and if possible more personable.  As a person with extreme allergies, an added bonus is the shedding is minimal.  Now I have bred and sold so many wonderful Goldendoodles to awesome families and continue to enjoy it was much as the first litter.  These pups are children not dogs!
