We got Autumn (was Adora) almost two months ago. She's the sweetest little girl and a huge bundle of energy. Premier Pups was been amazing during our whole journey, and we're so happy with our new family member! Thank you!
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've had the best experience getting our puppy thru Premier pups . They were very helpful prior to us getting him and made several follow up calls to check on him. He was in perfect health. His trainer in puppy class said today that wherever you got him, you did real good and we agree!!!
Everyone meet Cali, formerly Brandi! After having our human baby, we knew she’d want a companion. She loves dogs so we started researching and quickly came to the conclusion a Mini Goldendoodle was the best choice! These two are inseparable! Cali will not leave our 6 month olds side. Thank you Premier Pups!
I could not have loved my experience with PP any better! They walked me through the entire experience, regular calls, and also follow-ups after Bentley came home to me. Bentley arrived at our home on Sept. 13 and was born on July 10. He is full of energy and very intelligent. He quickly became our entire life and our son as well as a grandson. Highly recommend a Mini Goldendoodle and PP as a way to get to your next bundle of joy! If your pup is from this litter, would love to hear from you as well! :)
ive begged for years looking on this website for years and have the love of my life now my little brother!
Lucy is our Mini Goldendoodle, she was 5lbs at 8 weeks and is now 17lbs. She is 7 months old and has a personality of her own! She is very smart and stubborn, when we talk to her she likes to talk back. She has been very easy to train and learns new skills very quickly. She is fully house trained, it took about 4 months for her to get it down. She has little burst of energy throughout the day, however the majority of the day she is sleeping or calmly entertaining herself. Lucy is very friendly with people of all ages, other dogs, and cats. Sometimes we will catch her talking to the deer in the back yard, she is truly fearless. We 100% recommend getting a Mini Goldendoodle, and premier pups made the process very easy.
I have been wanting a puppy for quite a while, having been a cat owner all my life. My neighbor recommended Premier Pups. I am so happy to have found them. First they have great follow up and called every week for three weeks to check in to see how Daisy was doing, how I was doing and if I had any questions. Now to Daisy! She is the sweetest little knucklehead with whom I I am so lucky to share my life! Every day she makes me laugh and it so difficult not to spoil her. She is not a destructive puppy although she has gotten her mouth on paper from time to time and brings new meaning to the term scissor teeth! If you are on the fence, jump off, these puppies will add so much to your life!
August joined our family 6 months ago and we couldn’t be more happy with our decision to add a fur baby to our family. He is the BEST dog! Premier pups was fantastic! This was our first experience purchasing a dog online. Premier was extremely supportive and helpful. August took a while to adjust after the flight, didn’t want to eat very much, but after that initial adjustment he’s done great. August is an F1B and at almost 8 months old weighs about 18 pounds. We haven’t noticed 1 single dog hair on the floor. My son has many animal allergies but hasn’t had an issues with him.
I am absolutely obsessed! He was gifted to me only a couple of weeks ago, but I am very satisfied with my new fur son! We just had our first vet visit & he is a healthy pup! Would recommend this breeder forsure!
