I am not the owner of this special pup. It was awarded to one of the participants in the 5th Annual C. Clyde Run, named in my honor. This was a charity event for Shepherd's Crossing, an ecumenical non-profit which assists poor people with rent and utility assistance. The event raised $30,000 (including in-kind donations) and attracted 300 participants. Premier Pups delivered Bear on October 28 and he won the hearts of those who saw him. In addition to donating the Mini Goldendoodle, Michael Schoeff, Premier Pups owner, made a substantial cash donation. Shepherd's Crossing has assisted hundreds of individuals with rent and/or utility payments. Premier Pups and Michael Schoeff play an important role in that support. The puppy arrived in excellent health and adapted to its new surroundings quickly. I can heartily recommend Premier Pups to anyone wanting a puppy.
We love our little James! We have never had an inside dog before so wasn't sure what was ahead. James is wonderful! He is doing fantastic potty training and has a great playful loving personality.
I was so very stressed pickingup out a puppy I had never met... I looked for 6 months. Today I can not get over our pups personality... I would love to meet who raised her!!! So loving and sweet and friendly. I can't believe how much we love her!! We also have a 5 year old golden retriever, and they now are best of friends... I am so impressed with the family who raised our little girl!! Thank you so much for giving us this gift!!
We purchased 'Bentley' now known as Duke. He is very sweet and has been a great puppy so far. As far as the puppy we are happy. I was very hesitant with the process at first and was hoping to have a great experience as it was different than going to a breeder directly. I do not feel the experience I received is what they promote on their website. I did not feel reassured throughout and actually was met with frustration from the manager when I asked questions. I am not sure I would go through Premiere Pups again. I was hoping for more of a personal experience as they promote on the site.
This is the second pooch I have purchased from Premier pups. My first experience getting a puppy from Premier pups was awesome. They made the process very easy, and gave us all the information we needed and most importantly they gave me a happy, healthy, loving puppy. This left a very good impression and made me want to get my second pup from here. I adopted Lily November 27th so I've only had her a couple weeks, but even in this short amount of time I am confident in saying Premier pups gave me another wonderful dog. She's affectionate, very sweet temperament, but also full of spunk. She gets along great my my other pooch and I just could not be happier! Thank you, Premier Pups!!
This is our little Quila (key la). She arrived to us on September 14th. She is the sweetest puppy ever. She arrived healthy and happy. She is so smart. She already has sit, shake paws, down, roll, and crawl. Premiere delivery was very professional they asked if we had any questions. They called a couple days later to check on her. They even called a couple weeks after that to see how things were going. We have been very happy with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking for a puppy.
We have had our pup Livi (former name Phoenix) for almost 2 months now. We are very pleased with our experience with Premier Pups. Every detail of what to expect with our pup was clearly communicated through videos, emails, and phone calls. Livi was healthy and it took her about 2 weeks to eat on her own and adjust to our home. We have crate trained her and she enjoys being in it. Our family is blessed to have her and thankful for our experience. Thank you Premier! ??
We adopted Simba from premier pups last August and he is the best pup we could have asked for as first time dog owners. He is so full of playful and sweet. He was potty trained in under a month and we are currently in the process of house training him. He picked up on training words (sit, down, wait, paw) within a few days as well. I would highly recommend this breed and premier pups!
