How to Bring a Puppy Home:
Step 1 - Fill out Application Form:
Start by filling out the Puppy Application here on our website! Completion of the Puppy Application does not guarantee that you will be approved or commit you to anything yet. It is only the first step to initiate a conversation with us and tell us a bit about yourself and what you have in mind for your future pup!
Step 2 - Make your Deposit:
Once you send in your application, we will contact you via phone or email within a few days to let you know if you have been approved. If you have been approved you're one step closer to bringing home your very own Best Quality companion! The reservation list is on a first-come first-served basis, so your next step would be to officially reserve your spot on our list by submitting a $300 reservation fee! Your name will not be put on the reservation list until your deposit is received. *Please note: Deposits are non-refundable, however, it is transferable to ONE litter only. If you have a deposit on a litter and there are not enough puppies to go around, your deposit is transferable to the next planned litter - but in the next available order.
Step 3 - Waiting:
Now comes the hardest part of all... waiting! I often get asked "How soon can I expect my puppy?" and I really wish I could answer that for everyone! Although we may have a general idea of the litters that will be bred throughout the year, there are several things that we just can't guarantee until a litter has arrived such as litter size, gender ratio, color/markings, etc.
• In the case that we have a litter with a few spots available to reserve a puppy, as always, our process works as first come first served. •
Choosing your Puppy:
Once the litter is born:
We will provide bi-weekly photo or video updates as the puppies grow so that you can continue to see the puppies mature and see their personalities develop (we do not take requests for photos/videos and share pictures and videos to our website or social media accounts once we have them ready).
Choosing a Puppy:.
For the safety of the young puppies, we do not allow in-person selections and this process is done remotely when the puppies are around 6 weeks old. Puppies will be picked in the order of deposits received. First on the list gets first pick, second gets second pick, and so on. Puppy selections can be made through video chat, or pictures and videos.
Vaccinations and Pick-up:
Before leaving us, all puppies get a thorough exam and their first vaccinations from our veterinarian. This will all be included in your puppy packet that your puppy will need at their next vet visit with you.
Bringing your puppy home:
At 8 weeks old the puppies are ready for their new homes! On this day we meet up with you so you can take your puppy home. The remaining balance for your puppy will be due upon pick-up. There will also be a puppy pack of goodies to take home with you!
*If the puppy is being delivered to you out of state, the final payment and signed contract will be due around 7 weeks.*
Frequently Asked Questions:
WHAT IS THE PRICE?

*Price do not include breeding rights, and does not include shipping if needed*
HOW DO I ADOPT A PUPPY?
The best way to get a puppy from us is JOINING OUR RESERVATION LIST. We are always accepting deposits for our Puppies and Planned Litters, so to be sure you get the color/gender you prefer, don't delay getting your deposit in!
DO YOU ALLOW VISITS?
Unfortunately, no. We are not a kennel, our puppies are raised in our home. While we would love to accommodate these requests, our first priority is the safety and health of our puppies and family. There are absolutely no exceptions to this policy. Puppies being raised are not fully vaccinated until they are 16 weeks old (meaning they are not protected from easily transmittable diseases). We have also heard horrible stories of theft from other breeders, so for these reasons, the puppy selection process is done only via pictures/videos or video chat. When it is time to pick-up your puppy it will be scheduled to meet at a public location. We post pictures to our website and post video updates to our Instagram page so you can see our dogs and puppies "in action". We are happy to provide previous puppy buyer references.
WHEN WILL YOU HAVE PUPPIES?
We keep our "PLANNED LITTERS" page up to date. There you can see what updates we have about the planned litter (like if a Dam has come into heat, pricing, expected coloring, size etc.)
WHAT SIZES DO YOU BREED?
We breed standard size Goldendoodles (45-65lbs) and Bernedoodles (55-80lbs). We do not guarantee adult sizes, and make the best guess we can based on the weight of parents and past puppies produced. We do not breed any micro/tiny sized puppies.
WHAT DOES F1 OR F1B MEAN IN DOODLE BREEDS?
There are many generations of doodles.
We currently focus on breeding the F1 and F1B generation.
F1: is a puppy from two purebred parents, example: Golden Retriever x Poodle
F1B: is the result of taking an F1 Doodle and breeding it to one of the purebreds of the original mix (most commonly the poodle is chosen). example: F1 Goldendoodle x Poodle
F2: example would be an F1 Goldendoodle bred to an F1 Goldendoodle. Coat characteristics of F2 puppies can vary, you can also get unfurnished puppies in an F2 litter (unfurnished means they do not have the bearding and facial hair of a Doodle with furnishings, they will have a smooth face more like the non-poodle parent).
Multigen: Any combination of generations other than those listed above (for example an F1 x F1b would be a multigen).
WILL MY DOG SHED?
No dog is truly “non-shedding” or 100% hypoallergenic. We try to ensure the least amount of shedding possible in our puppies, but we can not guarantee that your dog will be these things. With F1s, I tell our clients to expect low to non-shedding coats. With the F1bs and Multigens, the chance of shedding is much less. And generally speaking, the curlier the dog, the less they will shed. What makes the Doodle breed different from many other dogs is the poodle in them, Poodles do not have an undercoat, and their curly hair sheds minimally. When it does shed, the hair becomes tangled in the other hair around it instead of falling off their body.
WHAT COMES WITH MY PUPPY?
Our puppies go home with their vet records, our health guarantee, sample bag of puppy food and puppy gift bag. What we put in the gift bags changes periodically, but usually includes: tips for training and care, chew toys or bones, blanket, etc.
DO YOU SHIP YOUR PUPPIES OUT OF STATE?
We strongly encourage our out of state families to fly to Denver International Airport to pick up their puppy themselves. We meet you at the airport, and then you fly home with your puppy in the cabin with you. If this is not an option for you, we have several great flight nannies that we have worked with in the past that you can get in contact with. A flight nanny picks up the puppy from us at the airport, and then flies with them in the cabin to your airport. You pick the puppy up from them curbside at the arrivals terminal. We do not cover any flight nanny fees (typically around $500 - $600) and you would be responsible for coordination with the flight nanny to schedule travel arrangements.
HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO GROOM MY DOG?
Grooming is a very important part of properly caring for and owning a Bernedoodle or Goldendoodle. Grooming practice should begin at a very young age with brushing and bathing at home. Puppy coats are easy to maintain, but it is important for puppies to get the exposure from a young age. As soon as your puppy is fully vaccinated, we recommend that you begin regular appointments with a groomer. In the beginning these will consists of simple baths and “puppy trims” that then progress to full grooming sessions as they grow. Typical adults will need full grooming appointments every 6-8 weeks. Your groomer will recommend frequency of appointments based on your dogs coat and lifestyle. This is in addition to at home maintenance of brushing multiple times a week and bathing when necessary.
HOW ARE THE PUPPIES RAISED?
Puppies are raised in our home and around our children, which means we are very involved in the handling of the puppies from birth. Giving them lots of socialization, attention, and exposing them to sounds of a household life. Starting at 3 days old we begin ENS (Early Neurological Stimulation). There have been many studies showing that performing ENS has great benefits to the puppy all the way into their adult life. Around 3 weeks old the puppies start litter training, teaching them to use the potty area to eliminate. This does NOT mean they will be potty trained when they come home with you, but it does get them off to a great start! Learning there is a designated area for eliminating at such a young age will hopefully make the transition to potty training easier and quicker for you.
DO YOU OFFER BREEDING RIGHTS?
We do occasionally allow breeding rights to approved breeders. If you are interested in breeding rights, please contact us as this will need to be discussed before proceeding to join our reservation list.
