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!
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.
Romo is the best puppy ever! He is so smart and loves to cuddle! He is energetic, loves people and we are so happy to have him.
Couldn't have had a better experience with Premier Pups. From our initial phone call after finding The web site to 3rd follow-up phone call during his first week with us, we have been very pleased with our experience in finding, acquiring and caring for our pup during his first week with us. Very professional and very caring.
I knew I wanted a Mini Goldendoodle and I wanted one now. Premier Pups was perfect because I didn’t have to be put on a long waitlist!! We contacted them on a Sunday and picked up Winnifred on a Friday!! I’ve never owned my own dog, and Premier Pups was very informative and helped me know how to care for her the first days. They called and checked in after we got home too. Winnifred is my whole world and I’m so thankful I found her.
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!
We picked up our Romeo yesterday and had an amazing experience. Our puppy is perfect, so personable, and so good. Thank you so much premier pup for our new family member !
We got LouLou at the beginning of May and have loved her since the minute we got her! She is the biggest bundle of joy and brings us all so much happiness. Premier Pups was so wonderful through the entire process, and they answered all of the (many) questions we had! We couldn’t be happier!
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.
Spencer is now 3 months old and doing quite well. He is fully potty trained and is learning to walk on a loose leash and sit, stay and come. He is a terrific addition to our family! We enjoy his energy, super sweet loving behavior and good nature. Spencer has been one of the best dogs we have owned. We are thrilled with Premier Pups support and service. We would not have found Spencer if it wasn't for such a terrific service. Thank you!
