Picked op Howie a week ago. Transition has gone great. Pup is healthy (per outside vet) happyand adjusting well. The experience has been great!
Sadie is a fun, loving dog that enjoys her toilet paper and paper towels... a lot. She has the biggest personality and LOVES every person she meets. With dogs she’s a little baby but she warms up to them eventually. Sadie loves playing and going on walks but when she’s not up for it she’ll be sure to let you know. If Sadie hasn’t seen you in a while she sing, literally. Occasionally she will pee but it’s happy pee. We love her with all our heart and she has brought so much love and happiness to our family. If anyone got their mini golden doodle last April in the litter with Sansa, Sunday, Sloane and Skylar please contact us!! We would love to see how Sadie’s (Sloane) siblings are :)
I highly recommend getting a puppy from here! Rosie is so cute and sweet! Picking up our puppy was very easy And quick!!
My family has been looking for and researching mini golden doodles for several months. We never could quite find one that seemed just perfect until we found Premier Pups. We fell in love with Hagrid (previously Perry) at first sight! Premier has been so helpful, even from the first time that I messaged them! I had so many questions because we have never bought an animal online and I thought it would be a scary, overwhelming process. They answered every question and made it easy and have been in contact with us since the day we made the purchase. We are extremely pleased with every aspect of Premier and we couldn't have found a more perfect fit for our family! Hagrid is the new baby and he is loving it!
Hercules (preciously Atari) has been such a blessing to our family. He is very loving and keeps us on our toes. He loves attending baseball games and playing with all his brothers friends. We loved how easy Premiere Pups made everything in choosing our dream pup!
Our experience with purchasing our dog was fantastic! We inquired initially by phone after a friend recommended the Premier Pups website to us. We went to see the puppy - he was just 6 lbs but we loved him immediately! He has been a joy for our family. We bid on him on-site and was able to take him home with us that day. We have two grown sons who love playing with Murphy and teaching him new tricks. He was such a good puppy, smart, learned quickly, and loves each of us unconditionally. He is now one year old and we still enjoy him everyday.
Our daughter begged for a puppy for months before her eighth birthday. She researched online and read books to find out everything she could about caring for a puppy and which breed was best to have for people with dog allergies. Then I found Premier Pups, we looked at the breeds available and decided on a mini goldendoodle. We made an appointment to visit Premier Pups the same day we called. We were impressed with the facility, the staff and the puppies! We visited with three different adorable mini goldendoodle puppies and chose the one we wanted to adopt. The staff was friendly, caring and helpful. It was a Great Experience!
We got Hudson about 2 months ago, and absolutely love him! Our experience with premier pups was amazing! We got to see with and play with different puppies before we chose! They had great customer care and offered supplies needed for the first few days as well as medicines. Ever since we got Hudson he has been great. He was easily potty trained and is very good about going outside. We haven’t had an accident in a few weeks. He is also very good at sleeping in his crate, however prefers “his” couch. He is a very lovable puppy and we would definitely go to premier pups again if we ever considered getting another one!
Very cute puppy. Very good experience with premier pups. They really care about the pups. Our puppy is lovely. Everyone in the family is in love with him.
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!!
