~ Waitlists for our 2023 spring litters are now full.~ Once application is approved, you can put down a deposit to hold a spot. We take 6 deposits for each litter. If we have more than 6 puppies we reach out to approved applications who have not put down a deposit. ~
We are a small family breeder of F1b and multigenerational, standard size Goldendoodles. We are located on Whidbey Island in Washington State. Our dogs are our family; they live in our home and are very well loved. Our puppies are just as important to us, so we have had full genetic health testing done on all of our breeding dogs to ensure our puppies are born free of many diseases that the breeds can have or carry. We do offer a two year health guarantee on genetic diseases.
Our puppies are raised with our four children. They are held and loved daily. We also use Puppy Culture method to ensure that they come home with their socialization well started, obedience started and comfortable with many sights and sounds. Potty training has a head start due litter training with pine pellets.
Goldendoodles are active, friendly, and love to be with people. They are good natured and affectionate. They can be wonderful family pets and companions. I do highly recommend finding an obedience trainer in your area as all dogs do better with adequate training.
They are usually low shedding dogs that can be great for people who suffer allergies. Due to the low shedding they do require quite a bit of grooming. This includes daily combing as well as a trip to the groomer every 6 to 8 weeks, depending on length you prefer. Please check with local groomer for costs. For me the expense is a great trade off for not having fur on clothes, furniture or throughout the cars.
Our litters are almost always reserved before they are born, so it’s best to get approved and get on a waitlist early. If you should find another puppy in the mean time, please let me know. Being approved does not obligate you to purchase a puppy and our non refundable deposit is not required until the pups are born and we know your preference for sex and color are available. Please note that we do not ship our puppies.
Health testing is very different than a ”vet check.“ All of our puppies are indeed examined by a veterinarian and given their first set of vaccinations by our vet. But we have also done genetic health testing, as well as OFA certifications, to ensure our puppies will not have a number of diseases that are common among these two breeds.
