Meet the Northwest Arkansas Dutch Haven Partners!
Joe & Lydia have fully embraced the lifestyle and culture we've found here in NWA, and we truly feel at home here. We are so pleased to be raising our Cockapoo puppies to a high standard of excellence in this beautiful setting, and we're thrilled to offer our pups to families in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and beyond!
Joe & Lydia Groen
Joe and Lydia are committed full-time to raising our dogs and our family with excellence. We have five children: Jack, Matthew, Benjamin, Elizabeth, and Samuel. We love taking road trips and often have dogs along. We are so blessed to have a large extended family and are thrilled that our kids get to spend so much time with grandparents and cousins! Our Cocker Spaniels all get along well with our black Labrador Willow and Katie the cat. Our dogs are all great with the kids and are an essential part of keeping our lives full of fun and laughter. At the end of 2020, we fulfilled a lifelong dream of moving West, and were able to purchase a rural country estate in Oklahoma. Our whole family (including the dogs!) is enjoying the big skies and room to roam!
Zack & Laura Shrift
When we made our big move we knew we'd need a stud dog here in NWA. We were thrilled when the opportunity arose to bring proven stud Paddington's younger brother Chester into our breeding family. Long-time friends Zack and Laura were happy to add Chester to their family, which shortly thereafter grew to include baby Judah! The trip from our home to Siloam Springs, AR, is a short one and we are frequent visitors at each others' homes for bbq's and game nights.
They motivate us to PLAY, be AFFECTIONATE, seek ADVENTURE and be LOYAL. -Tom Hayden
