About Us

Cowlitz Valley Bernedoodles is owned and operated by Dave and Marilyn Garcia.

We started our life in Washington on a farm just outside the little town of Morton in the beautiful Cowlitz Valley. After living there for seventeen years raising our Angus cattle and more recently, our dogs, we decided that life had another adventure waiting for us. We listed our farm and it sold in 10 days to a couple that absolutely loved our property, our mama poodle, Jayla, and our cattle. We packed up our house, shop, and barn, loaded the horses and dogs, and off we went to Eastern Washington to the beautiful town of Colville, which is about an hour's drive north of Spokane.

Dave has been working in Colville for the past year so it’s nice to be together again. Marilyn is continuing for the near future to work for Arbor Health remotely in the quality department until they have her replacement hired then it will be retirement time for her. She is excited about having the extra time to explore the Colville region and spend time with family, grandkids, and the puppies.

Living just 8 miles outside of Colville has allowed us to have our 160 acres of paradise. We are absolutely loving the drier climate and our property that is home to wild turkeys and deer. The dogs are keen on the adventure of exploring their new territory and the daily runs down our many trails.
