People should be aware that this kennel is listed as one of the Horrible Hundred kennels, which is the annual report by the Humane Society of the United States on puppy mills.The owner, Curtis Rist, has made the list at least 3 times for for unsanitary conditions, dogs/ puppies with matted fur and refusal to allow state inspectors into the kennel. Avoid this place like the plague.

Wonderful breeders. Curtis and Lynn take a personal approach to all their puppy families. We have had 4 cherished wonderful Australian Labradoodles from Hudson Labradoodles and will recommend this Breeder to all!

We adopted our little girl, Chloe, a chocolate brown labradoodle from Curtis 8 years ago and we love Very much . Fantastic temperament and very smart. Best dog I’ve ever had. I am posting the review after having read many of the other reviews re size of their dogs. We were told she would be between 20 and 25 lbs and she never grew beyond 14 lbs. A little disappointing but a fair trade off for such a wonderful, healthy dog. Before posting, remember that this is basically a member of your family and not some defective product you purchased. Granted it would be best to have your new dog grow to the promised (expected) size, but having a loving, healthy dog is much more important than getting the right size. Only issue for us is having to explain that she is actually a labradoodle due to her size. We always call we a mini-labradoodle. Thanks Curtis. We are very happy with her. Scott.

We feel so lucky to have gotten in touch with Curtis to get our puppy. It's hard to get hold of breeders during the pandemic. Every time I talked to Curtis he was full of information and took his time in answering my questions. He worked hard to be realistic about timing and was so honest and knowledgeable about a puppy that would best fit our family. On the day we brought our puppy home, he spent time to explain about how to care for the puppy and did demos for brushing and cutting nails. He gave us paperwork explaining what vaccines he had and his health history in general. His shop - the Dog Bodega - is super cute and chock full of items that will support the new dog owner. We are in love with our puppy and he is in excellent health. I feel like we have the cutest, smartest, well-behaved puppy. I'm sure that many others who have worked with Curtis feel the same.

I got my dog Oliver from Curtis. He’s a wonderful chocolate doodle who is smart and loving (ok, a tad sneaky too). He adored Curtis and was very loved by him. You can tell when a dog has only been loved and well cared for. Curtis was super …

I am lucky enough to have purchased four incredible puppies from Hudson labradoodles over the last 13years. Their puppies are consistently excellent, healthy, well cared for and well adjusted, year after year. They have the sweetest temperament of any Australian Labradoodle I’ve met (and I’ve met many over the last decade) When you purchase a puppy from Hudson Labradoodles, you become a member of their extended family. Curtis and Lynn provide excellent support and advice and are available throughout the life of the dog. The first two puppies I purchased are now senior dogs, and since I wanted to always have Hudson Labradoodles in my life, I recently purchased two more fantastic puppies. I have known Curtis and Lynn for 13 years, and I can personally vouch for their excellence, integrity, caring nature and quality as breeders. I have recommended Hudson Labradoodles to dozens of friends, coworkers and family members over the last decade and they are all extremely happy with their dogs. Curtis and Lynn love their puppies and dogs, and it shows

I adopted my dog from Hudson Labradoodles about 4 years ago. She’s a retired breeding dog, and has been an absolute joy! She has an amazing personality, is attentive, smart, and has so much energy! People are constantly shocked to learn that she is 12 years old. I could not recommend this breed, or Hudson Labradoodles enough. Curtis and Lynn were wonderful to work with, and went above and beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly. They are still, after 4 years, readily available for any questions I might have. They are so knowledgable about caring for dogs, and will do everything they can to make you feel welcome. When it’s time for another dog, Hudson Labradoodles will be my top choice.

Our puppy from Hudson Labradoodles is one of the sweetest, smartest, healthiest and happiest dogs I've ever had. I have had many dogs from breeders over many years--they have all been great but none as caring and kind as Curtis and Lynn. Our dog was socialized and trained better than any on the day we got him. The love, patience and training given by Hudson Labradoodles shows--and the love and caring continues as Curtis is ready and willing to jump on a call and answer any questions we have, or just hear about how wonderful the "wonder pup" is doing. I can't recommend Hudson Labradoodles enough!

We have had the absolute best experience getting a puppy from Hudson Labradoodles. Our puppy has the best temperament, is smart, loyal, loving, and is an amazing addition to our family. Curtis and Lynn provide a great support system, including training and ongoing interest in our puppy’s life. Curtis and Lynn treat their puppies like they are members of their family. Their caring nature shows in everything they do. Many of my relatives have their dogs as well, and they all have the same wonderful temperament. We couldn’t be happier with Hudson Labradoodles and highly recommend them.

Trust Curtis and Lynn. They are absolutely the best. Almost 12 years ago we brought home our Evita from Hudson Labradoodles and Curtis told us what a good dog she was. He underestimated her-she was the best-obedient, happy, energetic and quickly became a family member. If there were any questions, at any time, Curtis quickly and accurately responded. He treated Evita as if she were his own dog. In emergency situations, he was there with great advice and assurance that all would be well. Our family absolutely recommends this breeder without any hesitation.

Curtis is an absolute gentleman and I highly recommend Hudson Labradoodles. Our little boy "Moose" is a wonderful addition to the family. Our kid's absolutely adore him and we are grateful for the fantastic experience!!

Hudson labradoodles is the only place to get a true Australian Labradoodle. I feel that anyone who has not been completely satisfied by Curtis and his beautiful dogs should definitely take a second look at themselves and perhaps do some soul searching. We have had Emma for 4 years now and she is absolutely perfect. So perfect most of our neighbors and friends have also went to Curtis to enrich their lives with one of his amazing dogs. Keep up the good work Curtis and Emma says hello from Cape May!

Let me say right off the bat that our Labradoodle is the smartest, fastest, most energetic dog I have ever had – 5th in my lifetime, first purchased from a breeder. I am the grandson of a veterinarian and have been around dogs, cats and …

I am a dog walker for one of the puppies from Hudson Labradoodles. Hudson, the puppy, is one of the best behaved pups I have ever seen. From the moment I met Hudson who was just a few months old when I met him, he was well socialized, quick learner, and never had any bathroom accidents inside. I’m so happy Hudson Labradoodles gave us one of our favorite puppies who I still walk today.

Like another reviewer, I was sold a very expensive "standard" puppy who grew to be 33 lbs as an adult. She is cute as can be, smart, healthy and full of personality. I love my dog with all my heart, as does the whole family, but the breeder clearly doesn't understand why folks might be annoyed by his dishonesty. He said in his response to another reviewer that he can't guarantee size, but if he was truly breeding standard sized dogs, they wouldn't be so small. My family wanted a dog who could play with our other dog safely. I told the breeder this in advance. Our other dog is a large dog. While they do play together and love each other, we feel like we have to always supervise playtime, simply because of their size difference. Like the other reviewer, I regret not seeing the parents first. Bet they were both little! Breeder has lovely dogs, but he should be honest about size expectations.

Curtis sold us a puppy with horrible genetic lung issues. We tried contacting him several times to honor the contract we signed or at the very least, assure us that he would not breed Baxter's parents again to spare other families the heartache. Despite multiple attempts, we never heard back from him.

This breeder (Curtis Rist) is dishonest - BEWARE!!! He has owed my 90 year old mother $1000 for more than 18 months for a dog that turned on her and was returned. He says he will pay her every time I get lucky …
