Abileigh just turned 1! We had a wonderful experience with premier pups. Initially around this time last year we had put a deposit down for a mini goldendoodle with a breeder closer to home. A few weeks later we had some red flags and started feeling uneasy with the situation as they were not answering our questions or returning our calls/emails. I called premier pups about this litter specifically and they were so knowledgeable and helpful. Within hours there was only one pup left in this litter and we put our deposit down! They sent me videos and pictures the several weeks before she was ready to come home. She flew from Ohio to Charlotte in May. I was very nervous she would be traumatized from the flight but she jumped out of the crate into my arms at the airport and starting licking me and hasn’t stopped since. She has been a very healthy puppy and everywhere she goes everyone instantly falls in love with her. She has been a wonderful addition to our family and we will definitely use premier pups again in the future.
We searched for a mini Goldendoodle for over a year and could never find one in a shelter. I was scared to buy a dog online, never seeing it or where it came from. But I kept coming back to Premier’s website every day. I fell in love with this girl who was named Scarlett, renamed Talia. We picked her up at 9 weeks, weighing 3 lbs 8 oz. She is 5 months now, weighing 9 lbs, and is the absolute joy of our home. She is so loving, playful and easy to train. We bell trained her and she is for the most part potty trained....except when someone comes to the house and she is so excited to see them she just can’t contain it!! She has learned to sit, stay, paw and we are working now on lay down. We have never had a dog before so we were so anxious, but Premier made it easy for us. Talia is a healthy and growing mini who we are simply swooned over.
Seamless puppy buying experience. Jacob and Roger were always responsive towards answering our questions throughout the whole process. We are happy to have Maisie (aka Tayla) here as a part of our family.
Stella has been such a great addition to our family! We had a great experience with premier pups! She is smart, loving and adorable at 6 months old!!
We are soooo in Love with Rolo! He warmed up to us so quickly, super smart, & just the cutest pup we’ve ever seen! It was aneasy smooth process through Premier Pups, I would highly recommend!
Already in love with Ellie ?? and she’s only been a part of our family for 16 days! Ellie learns very quickly and can sit; lie down, shake and come when called. Plus she’s an avid Ohio State fan! Premier Pups has been very supportive and cares about their puppies.
Kash (formally Baron), is a beautiful mini golden-doodle puppy that has been home with us for 1 week. He is the most lovable, playful and happy puppy. Adopting him through premier pups was seamless from the start, the entire team of staff are extremely tentative and helpful. I would recommend premier pups to anyone looking to adopt a puppy!!! We love Kash and cannot imagine life without him.
This is our first puppy and we couldn't be happier with our darling girl. She is smart, sweet, never met a stranger, and loves other dogs. The follow up support from Premier Pups was much appreciated.
We found our pup mazzi on the premier pups website, we fell in love with her!! Premier pups made the process very easy for us to adopt her, they also provide everything you need for your puppy for the first week or two.
I was honestly so scared of ordering a puppy offline that would have to be shipped; however, I could not have asked for a better experience! Premier Pups called and answered every questioned. When Ellie (originally Hope) arrived, she came with everything that I needed and multiple care tips! They have called multiple times to make sure she is adjusting! I most definitely reccommed buying from Premier Pups!
