My name is Kathryn Hadfield. I began my career as a veterinary technician in 2002 after many years in the restaurant/catering business in Park City, Utah. I decided I needed a career change and pursue my love of animals. I have owned horses and dogs my entire life, and found that becoming a veterinary technician was my calling. With my ambitious nature and pursuit of knowledge, I wanted to be the best I could be. I became the head technician for both the clinic in Park City as well as the clinic in Montrose, CO after our move. I retired in the spring of 2017, but after a few short months I was quickly pulled back into the veterinary world to assist with the opening of a new Veterinary Clinic in Montrose which now serves as the top Canine Reproduction clinic on Colorado’s Western Slope.
Becoming a breeder only furthered my passion to develop the best and healthiest pups I can. With my knowledge and resources, I know dogs inside and out. This gives me the opportunity to offer my families a life time of support and if I don’t know the answer, I can find it. When I began breeding Bernedoodles in 2014, I was one of the first few breeders in the United States. Through my experience at the vet clinic, I had the opportunity to be mentored by one of the top breeders in the country.
After living in the ski resort town of Park City for 30 years, my husband Hans and I moved to Montrose, Colorado in 2007 for a change of pace. We purchased our 12-acre ranch and instead of a ski hill in our backyard, we now have an arena where I can pursue my other passion of showing Reining horses. We feel very fortunate to be surrounded by the alpine beauty of the Rocky Mountains and enjoying the love of all of our 4 legged family.
