A few more things to consider

Grooming

Furnished Goldendoodles do require regular grooming. The length of the hair and style of the groom can change the look of your puppy. Finding a qualified groomer is recommended. Please consider this when deciding if a Goldendoodle is right for you. I do recommend puppy parents learn some of the basics of grooming at home for the in between grooming needs you may encounter. I would be happy to discuss this more during our phone interview and give some recommendations on what to purchase for home grooming supplies or what to look for in finding the right groomer.

Training

We do everything in our power to deliver puppies with high nerve strength, wonderful dispositions, and friendly loving personalities. Every dog has its own personality and we will try to match the best personality to your life situation. Our puppies are only with us for 8-9 weeks but will spend the rest of their lives with you. A dog is being trained every moment they are with you, so consistency and a basic understanding of dog psychology is very important for success with any dog. Bad or unwanted habits can develop and it is usually a deficiency in training on the humans part. If bad or unwanted habits develop, we suggest seeking help with a professional dog trainer.
If you would like to avoid dealing with bad habits before they develope, I suggest you look into Baxter and Bella. We have partnered with Baxter and Bella to give you the best possible start in your knowledge of training. Baxter and Bella is an online training resource that you can access on demand.

Adopt don’t shop statement

As a breeder I feel it is important to address the adopt don’t shop mentality head on. I have adopted many pets in the past and loved them all. I will say all of them came with issues. My life now can not afford the what ifs a rescue dog can bring. Contrary to popular belief most rescue dogs have not been abused but instead have had a traumatic introduction to life that brings generalized fear. Generalized fear is one of the hardest things to deal with as a pet owner. I believe there is a place in the world for both adoption and responsible breeding. Breeders are doing their best to bring healthy stable pets to loving homes. A well bred dog gives you an advantage but not a guarantee to having success with an animal. Rescue animals generally have unknown genetics and possible health deficiencies that we as breeders can control. I believe education and responsible pet ownership should be the solution, not government intervention or shaming responsible breeding practices.
