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.
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.
Riley Grace is turning 4 in June. Since I meet up with so many people asking where she came from I thought it was about time I left a review. She is the sweetest pup, we can hardly walk through our bustling little city without people admiring her. She loves to greet people by standing up and turning so her back nuzzles against their legs. She is a Certified Therapy Dog and has visited cancer patients and a shelter for homeless women and children. I was so pleased with easy it was to find her, after a FaceTime visit I was sold. She was sent to us quickly with starter food and medication. Thank you Premier Pups for this great joy in my life.
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!!
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.
We purchased Baylor from Premier Pups in Feb 2020. We were Leary about purchasing a dog and having him flown to us. Very nerve racking. Well I have bragged about Premier pups every since. They kept me posted every step of the way. They were not going to put him on a flight to early in the morning because it was cold and not good for the puppy. They called to keep me posted about flight status, called to check on him on day 3 day 7. They called 2 weeks in and again in a month and again on his one year birthday. Who does that? They care about their fur babies. If we purchase another pup it will definitely be through Premier Pups. Our mini golden doodle has brought so much joy to our family.
This is Cody (formerly named Armani), a Mini Goldendoodle, whom we adopted on November 7, 2020. He has been an absolute joy. He's very sociable, energetic, confident, and loves everybody--dog and human alike--that he meets. He has been perfectly healthy, with absolutely no issues at all. He's robust and growing--5 pounds when we adopted him, 14 pounds now (01/26/21). Everyone who sees him remarks on how incredibly cute he is. He also seems to be quite clever, solving puzzles and learning new commands very fast, not that he always follows those commands yet, of course! We're happy dog owners and very pleased with our decision to get a puppy (our first ever) from PremierPups.
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 Zoe (formerly Michelle) a week ago when we picked her up at the airport. She has been adapting very well and has been spoiled since then! Premierpups did an excellent job, we are very pleased with the follow up and all the information provided. As of today, We have been camping for three days and so many people are stoping us in the street to ask question about Zoe, we have been referring premierpups to them.
Cooper is now 8 months old, and purchasing him from Premier Pup is probably the best decision my wife and I have made! From the time we first called when we were interested, with lots of questions, all of the staff was friendly and helpful. We picked him up from the Premier pup facility, and it is every bit as nice in person as it is in the pictures. While you can't see all the dogs, they didn't mind showing us the behind the scenes areas at all, and the place was spotless, certainly not a puppy mill or anything of the sort (I was honestly a little worried). As soon as they brought Cooper out to us, we were in love! They called a couple of times the first few days to make sure everything was okay and answers any questions we had. Since then, Cooper has been perfect! While he has grown a bit bigger than their predictions (supposed to be 15-25, is actually somewhere around 30), we think he's the perfect size. He was very quick to potty train and hasn't had an accident in months. He also wasn't difficult to train, probably the best in his puppy class. He's adorable, loving, playful, and perfectly healthy. Everyone who sees him loves him! Couldn't have picked a better puppy. Thanks!!
