Since I was a little girl, I have always had a passion for animals! Dogs, horses, cats, rabbits, fish, hamsters--you name it! I especially loved the baby form of each animal; puppies, kittens, foals, bunnies, ect. Living on a farm, I got to experience "littles" a lot. I struggled when it came time for college because I never thought my dream to work alongside animals everyday would become a reality.
Cody's passion for animals started from a young age, too! It's one of the many things I love about him, and something we instantly connected over. His family has had numerous farm animals, and their home wouldn't be complete without a dog outside chasing the barn cats, and protecting the farmstead.
Our mission at Country Lane is to provide you with a transparent breeding program and a fun, seamless experience when it comes to bringing home your new companion. We want to provide you with as much happiness that each of our dogs bring to us each day! Bringing healthy, happy puppies into the world is a wonderful thing, but to find them homes where they will continue to be loved unconditionally throughout their lives is the cherry on top!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our background! My name is Rycki, and my husband and I own Country Lane. Pictured on the left is us on our wedding day with our Mini Bernedoodles, Kinze (right, 1 yr) and June (left, 10 wks).
Both my husband and I come from very small towns in Iowa. We met in college, and when he took me to visit his little home town, I fell in love with the wonderful, Southern Iowa charm and the friendly people that live here. We decided that this would be the perfect place to call home together! So began the hunt for the perfect home!
We both knew what our priorities were: a nice little home out in the peaceful Iowa countryside, and a little piece of land to call our own. Let me tell you, did it take some time to find, but we finally did it! The house had everything on our list, plus one amazing addition; a beautiful dog facility, perfectly tailored for homing our dogs. At last, we could see that our dream of raising litters of puppies would finally become a reality!
