"We got lucky when stumbling upon the Silverbell Doodles website, while looking for a puppy, whose parents were a poodle and whatever mix - as long as it would grow to be a small-to-medium size adult of 30 pounds, give or take a few pounds. We were convinced after reading about the characteristics of the Poodle-Schnauzer mix and speaking with the owners of "Silverbell," Stephanie and Keith, that a "Schnoodle" should be our choice.
We chose a two week old female. But we would not be able to bring her home until she reached 8 weeks old. Until then, she would get her puppy shots, dew claws removed, weaned and converted to dry food, and learn how to pose for pictures while prepping for her new home. With each picture Stephanie would periodically send us, our excitement grew for the day to bring our girl home. That banner day was Easter, so we named our little girl Pascha (an ancient Greek word meaning Easter or Passover).
(If stars were given, Stephanie and Keith, Silverbell Doodles, would receive five stars plus a resounding Thank You, for being so conscientious and caring to bring us a puppy so filled with love.)"

"Our experience with Silverbell Doodles was pretty great. From the first time we sent an inquiry, the communication was tremendous. We received weekly updates with pictures/videos of our pup. When it came time to pick her up from Silverbell Doodles, we received everything we needed for a successful homecoming...our little girl was obviously raised in a loving home. Our Schnoodle is smart, loving and all we could have asked for. Thank you very much."

"Silverbell is the perfect place to find your furry friend. They were excellent from the beginning - very responsive, answered all of our (many) questions from the time we contacted them to the day we picked up our puppy, and very knowledgeable - overall great people to work with. Not to mention, the dogs are smart, gorgeous and the perfect companions. We are so happy with our Schnoodle pup and we know she came from a great home. Highly recommend!"

"Getting my puppy, Berlin, from Silverbell Doodles, was an amazing choice! They made sure he had all his shots tucked and a puppy starter kit with all the toys he loves. Every step of the way was convenient as far as choosing Berlin, picking him up, and making a payment. They even sent picture updates of my puppy along the way! I received Berlin freshly bathed and with lots of love to give. I wouldn't have done it any other way."
"We got our amazing pup "Butter Ball" from Silverbell doodles. I am so glad I happened to be at the right time at the right place..We were looking for a puppy as we were ready to be dog parents and luckily for us, Butter was still available. I contacted Keith and he was very patient with my questions and invited me home to see the pup. We drove that same day to see our Schnoodle pup and it was love at first sight.
When I went to Keith's place, we knew they were very good breeders as we could see how happy all the dogs were at his place. All very well behaved Dams and Sire Dakota is the rockstar!
Keith and Steph were consistent with communications about Butter. We would eagerly wait every weekend to get some pictures of Butter. Finally we got to bring our Fluff ball home on the 8th week. Since then Butter has filled our hearts with love and home with toys everywhere. We are very happy with our experience with Silverbell Doodles and would recommend them to all our friends who are looking for a Doodle."

Mike and Betty Noling recommend Silver Bell Doodles:
"Our Madison is a 13 week old female Schnoodle weighing in at four and one half lbs. going to be about 10 lbs. We selected her at one week old from Silver Bell Doodles and picked her up at 8 weeks. The breeder, Keith Brathovd, kept us informed weekly with pictures and reports. Madi lived in the Brathovd bedroom with her mother and siblings at night. She was very well on the way to socialization by the Brathovd family and their amazing dogs when we picked her up.
Madi is healthy, smart, outgoing, very playful, and loves people and other dogs."
I am so grateful for Silver Bell Doodles! I adopted my adorable, playful, and loving cockapoo puppy Blue from them. It was incredibly important to me to adopt a dog through a small, local, family Breeder and Silver Bell Doodles was exactly that. Working with Keith and Stephanie was such an amazing experience. They are incredibly kind, generous, and helpful throughout the process. It is very apparent and obvious that they care very much about their dogs and make sure that they find good and loving homes. They answered each and every question that I had from the beginning through the end of the process and during his first eight week, they sent photos on an almost daily basis after my pup Blue. As a first time dog mom, I could not have more thankful for this experience and happy to be a part of the Silver Bell fam.
Dear SilverBell Doodles,
We are happy to say that Ollie has been a great addition to our little family. He is very curious and isn’t afraid to explore his new home. Thank you for the great experience and step by step process on getting our pup. You guys are so passionate about what you do and it shows. When we first met Ollie, we can tell that he was already so loved and comfortable in his environment. Me and my husband are first time parents and we felt like we were going to a friends house because of how comfortable we felt when visiting. You guys are the best and we loved every bit of our experience getting our pup Ollie. Thank you so much! 💙
I am delighted with our baby schnoodle from Silverbell Schnoodles. Stephanie and Keith kept me updated on my furr baby’s development and growth. My puppy is so sweet and well-loved. I can tell that he was treated beautifully as a baby pup. I appreciated seeing pics of his parents and how they were being raised as well. So happy to have found Silverbell Schnoodle and over the moon with my new pup. ❤️Thank you Stephanie, Keith and your family ... both human and furry.
Sincerely, Priscilla Bower

Our experience with Silverbell doodles was amazing. We really appreciate how suportive and responsive Stephanie and Keith were with helping us add a furbaby to our family. They answered all of our questions (and I had alot) promptly and thoroughly. We got a chance to meet our fur baby and his parents and you can tell they really care for their pups. We were kept up to date on our pups milestones with photos, videos and were able to video chat with our pup too. Thank you so much for our beautiful puppy and such an amazing experience.
As soon as you land on their website, you see a picture of their family which is what set them apart from other breeders. You can really see the love and care they give to the dogs. Keith and Stephanie were so patient and helpful throughout the entire process, answering every single question, sending weekly pictures/videos and even additional ones when I needed a midweek pick me up. My best friend and I both received a puppy from different litters and they were very accommodating in scheduling our choosing and pick up dates together. Shia has been nothing but a bundle of joy for me, my family, and friends. He is so affectionate, playful, and just the most adorable puppy - I couldn’t be any happier with my Silverbell Doodles experience. If you’re here reading this, look no further - I highly recommend Silverbell Doodles! Thank you Stephanie and Keith!
Stephanie and Keith are two phenomenal humans that genuinely love what they do and it shows. The journey of looking for a breeder was rough but it was eased when I met them. They have been nothing but amazing! They kept me updated throughout the entire journey of adopting Cali. All the photos and videos they sent were very much appreciated. I believe in getting to know your breeder because they are the first human interaction with your fur baby and it’s important. You can tell that Cali has had a lot of love from their family before I officially adopted her because she’s an absolute sweetheart. This little girl will be gifted to my mom in NY, but I plan on coming back to get my own puppy soon. I highly recommend Silverbell Doodles to anybody that’s looking for a breeder that saturates their dogs in pure love, you will not be disappointed.
This is a “Shout-Out” to Keith and Stephanie. They are wonderfully kind breeders. Their dogs are so, so happy as is my chocolate cockapoo, Chloe.
Keith and Stephanie send videos and photos as your puppy grows so you can be part of its life. They are patient and prompt to answer your questions so you are prepared for your puppy’s arrival at two months. View their Instagram site to see their amazing dogs.
We are so grateful to Silverbell Doodles for giving us our sweet cuddle bug, Roux. From my first call with them, Stephanie and Keith were so knowledgeable, down to earth, and clearly loved what they do. That rang true throughout the entire process from picking our pup at 3 weeks, getting updates of her growing up, and to the day we’ll never forget—picking our new best friend up. We were able to meet Roux’s parents. Stephanie and Keith shared a bunch of valuable tips. And, they even sent us off with a basket of all the essentials to make our first days with her as smooth as possible like food, toys, treats, and best of all, a blanket that smelled like her litter mates and mom. Having Roux home with us, I know that she had such a loving start to life, and that’s all thanks to Silverbell Doodles.
Stephanie and Keith are simply the best! I cannot speak highly enough of them and feel so lucky that I found them. They were incredibly patient, kind and thoughtful throughout the whole process which was particularly important to me as a new dog owner. At the first meeting, when I got to meet Lola, Keith spent a full hour with me answering all my questions. Stephanie sent me videos and pictures unprompted between that first meeting and when I could take Lola home and answered all my random questions over text. And then on day of pickup they sent us home with such a thoughtful basket of supplies to help Lola adjust to her new home. Now that I have had Lola for a week it is clear to me how well loved and socialized she was. She is a loving, confident puppy who loves to meet new people and is happy to be snuggled and handled. Thank you Silverbell Doodles for bringing Lola into our lives.
Bailey has really been an awesome puppy. The real testament comes from a trainer we are working with to help work with him so he can be a support dog for Brian. As you know, Brian has Alzheimer's and can be impulsive among other things.
Holly in working with Bailey has observed how smart he is. He generally learns things the first time. At least he remembers it. He is also, generally not reactive. He has a very good temperament and likes and gets along with all dogs. There are a few he is unsure of because they barked at him.
He is a good little traveler too. He enjoys visiting and is pretty easygoing and well behaved in most places considering he is still a puppy. We love this little dog and would and have recommended Silverbelle Schnoodles to folks we have met looking for a good puppy.
“We cannot say enough good things about Stephanie and Keith! From our first email inquiring about the pups to the day we finally got to pick up Colin, they have been incredibly patient and accommodating. All of our questions were answered (and we had so many!) and they made sure that the entire process was as smooth as possible. Stephanie sent us so many pictures and videos of our puppy and it was so exciting to see him grow as the weeks passed. When it came time to pick up Colin, we got to spend a bit more time with him and Stephanie/Keith who answered even more questions about puppy raising and Colin's personality. We could tell that he was showered with love and care. We are so happy that Colin is now part of our family and can't recommend Silverbell Doodles enough!"
Keith and Stephanie are amazing! From the moment we met them and their wonderful family of dogs we felt so welcomed. Bella was our first ever puppy and we have had SO many questions. Both Keith and Stephanie have answered all of our questions and more. We are so in love with our sweet Bella! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Only one regret, we didn’t get two puppies! I guess there is always next time!
The absolute best! I am so happy I got in touch with Silverbell doodles. They are a nice family who you can tell just loves and cares for dogs. They were very responsive and patient with all my questions as a new dog owner and always provided me updates between choosing my pup and pick up day! You can’t go wrong with coming to Silverbell Doodles. Rory has been the best gift in my life and he came to me so smart, healthy and loving. Thank you Silverbell Doodles for everything!
