Meet our Family
Welcome to Denim and Diamond Doodles!
My name is Charlotte and I am the founder and owner of Denim and Diamond Doodles kennel.
As a young girl, I was raised in Santa Ynez California by my mother, Cindy Hancock - the founder and owner of Abracadoodles, where I grew up riding horses, raising animals for 4-H, and learning dog training and breeding from my mother. At a young age, I learned the importance of having a loving, healthy relationship with animals and have brought that care and integrity to my own ranch in Templeton, California, where I now raise, train, and care for my own horses and dogs.
As a mother, I believe in passing along the love of animals and the outdoors to my son Morgan, who helps take care of animals on the farm and raise puppies from our litter
In addition, my son and I believe in community outreach and it is an important part of our lives. Personally, I am involved as an instructor with the United States Pony Club and I ride and train with the San Luis Obispo County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse. Also, every year, Morgan and I donate one of my Doodle puppies to a charitable organization to help their fundraising efforts.

Charlotte's Mom & Founder of "Abracadoodle" Kennel in Washington
Cindy Hancock has selected her Doodle parents from the healthiest, kindest and most trainable of the dogs to be considered at her kennel. First generation crosses (F1) and F1b will be available now with multi-generation crosses (F2). There will be some cross backs to poodles to obtain a more hypo-allergenic coat.
Cindy has been breeding, raising and training Golden Retrievers for 25 years. During her 30 years as a professional breeder, Cindy has also raised, owned, and trained Labradors and Poodles. Intrigued by the development of this new breed, Cindy researched, studied and came to the conclusion that this was truly a wonderful combination and she endeavored to breed some specially chosen dogs and produce Doodles.
Several of the Golden Retriever puppies who were born at CH Kennels are used for therapy dogs. The origin of “Doodles” is found in Australia where they were originally bred as a service dog for disabled persons. In keeping with this important public service CH Kennel donates one puppy per year to be raised by a foster family and trained as a service/companion dog. Cindy has donated puppies to a ranch for abused children that rehabilitates kids through the love and nurturing of special animals. Cindy has also taught dog obedience and helped owners with “problem” dogs, having earned several trophies through the years.
Cindy has an extensive background in the field of animal health, having studied Animal Science at California Polytechnic State University, and worked in the veterinary field for more than 15 years. She is dedicated to producing GoldenDoodles and Labradoodles puppies that will make wonderful companions for responsible families.
CH Kennels Doodle parents are AKC registered and many have outstanding champion bloodlines. Their Doodle offspring will be registered with the CKC, UKC and APR. Her dogs excel in obedience, agility, flyball and other canine activities. Cindy has also been involved in local 4H clubs as a leader in dog care, and can usually offer a small discount to children in 4H dog groups. Children from the 4H group help tremendously with the socialization of the puppies born at CH Kennels.
Cindy’s dogs are firsthand members of her family. They live with her in her home when they are old enough they have free run of vast pastures at the ranch but the poodles always sleep in the house! All Cindy’s dogs are registered, obedience trained, house broken and are often found following her on the trail rides with the horses.
Cindy’s Ranch, located in beautiful rural Washington State near Spokane, is an oasis for her Goldens. They are free to run, play and swim in the great outdoors; the perfect life for GoldenDoodles and Labradoodles.
Charlotte's Son & Third Generation "Puppy Wrangler"
Morgan is growing up doing all the things kids love: playing outside in the fresh air, running around on the ranch getting dirty, climbing trees and sometimes scraping his knee, helping with chores, playing with puppies, riding horses and going camping. He is learning important life skills such as the responsibilities of caring for animals, and is quite mature for his age, although he will always be young at heart. When not riding horses, doing chores, caring for puppies or doing his homework, Morgan loves video games and excels at computers, and he dreams of enlisting in the military one day.
