Brandi Shurtz-Huffmaster is the owner/breeder of Sutter Buttes Labradoodles. Brandi established SBL in 2002.

Sutter Buttes Labradoodles is located in the heart of Northern California and nestled at the foot of the picturesque Sutter Buttes. We are located in Yuba City/Marysville area which lies right in the middle of two very popular California cities … Sacramento and Chico. We are also within close proximity to the San Francisco/Bay Area. While we literally have puppies in almost every state, we love being able to serve our beautiful Nor Cal and So Cal regions bringing our awesome #sblalumni puppies to the Sacramento Valley, Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Chico, San Francisco, Oakland, Lafayette, Tahoe, Mammoth Lakes, and Los Angeles areas to name several!

In 2013 Brandi brought in Allie as an assistant/apprentice to her program. In 2016, Allie became a business partner, taking on a more defined roll within the rapidly growing SBL program. Brandi and Allie tag team together to make sure clients needs are being accommodated while the puppies are getting equal quality attention, love, and extreme socialization in their formative first eight weeks of life. Brandi and Allie are doing something that really excites them both …raising quality Australian Labradoodles that will become loyal family pets in homes such as yours!

Meet Allie! She is my assistant and quite literally my right hand gal! She delivers puppies for me, handles breedings and works on puppy socialization as the puppies grow. She also works frequently with my puppy families on days when I have appointments or am out of town. She has been a blessing in helping me juggle our busy schedule and keeps things running like clockwork!

At Sutter Buttes Labradoodles we have a strong sense of commitment to our breeding program. The welfare of our dogs and puppies is of the utmost importance to us. We strive to be open to the standards and improvements within the breeds. We are excited that the offspring of our dogs will aid in the broadening of the Australian Labradoodle gene pool!

All of our breeding dogs come from quality lines with excellent pedigrees. We put great time and effort into selecting our breeding stock to produce the temperaments and coats that we wish to pass along to our upcoming litters.

Our breeding dogs are always raised as family pets. Every one of our breeding dogs are raised in loving families throughout Northern California as part of our Guardian Home Program. If you are interested in learning more about our Guardian Home Program click here.

Our dogs receive non-stop attention and affection and come to you kid tested and approved! We have many children which do a wonderful job as “puppy socializers”. We are constantly amazed at the playful, yet gentle nature of these beloved dogs. Our kids love to play with our dogs and the dogs love to play with them. It is hard to tell which group loves the playful interaction the most. Temperament in the dogs we breed will always be a top consideration as we only wish to produce loving and playful Australian Labradoodles, true to their nature. With this in mind, you can rest assured that at Sutter Buttes Labradoodles, we are always attentive in our breeding so that we can provide to you the best “quality Australian Labradoodles” in every sense of the term.

Why Australian Labradoodles?

What got us interested in Australian Labradoodles?? The answer to that question is very easy. We had a black Labrador Retriever which we adored. She was a housedog and a huge part of our family – royalty in our book. Reba was very special to us because she came to us at three years of age when my grandfather passed away. She was his dog and she treasured my grandfather. He trained her at 5 months of age to retrieve anything he needed…(remote control, hats, keys, tools, soda cans, wallet…etc.). She could do every trick in the book by 6 months of age. He took great pride in her ability to learn several tricks a day, and she loved to please him. We were honored to take her into our home and she quickly realized we were going to spoil her like crazy.

Reba 1991-2004

The only negative I could EVER say about Reba is that she shed … and her hair was everywhere! We all have allergy problems and the shedding did not help! As she got older we often thought about getting another lab, but the thought of all that dog hair made us question it. Then one day I was reading Fortune Magazine and came across an article about Labradoodles that I found very intriguing. Shortly thereafter I saw the delightful dogs romping around on the set of the Today Show – It was then I became hooked and knew that I had to get my hands on one of these fabulous creatures! How wonderful…dogs with the temperaments and sweetness of Labs and Golden Retrievers and the intelligence and allergy-friendly (no-to-low shedding) coats of a Poodle! That is why we started Sutter Buttes Labradoodles.
