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!
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.
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!
We purchased 'Bentley' now known as Duke. He is very sweet and has been a great puppy so far. As far as the puppy we are happy. I was very hesitant with the process at first and was hoping to have a great experience as it was different than going to a breeder directly. I do not feel the experience I received is what they promote on their website. I did not feel reassured throughout and actually was met with frustration from the manager when I asked questions. I am not sure I would go through Premiere Pups again. I was hoping for more of a personal experience as they promote on the site.
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!!
Thank you Premier Pups. A friend of mine referred me to you when I told her I was looking for a Mini Goldendoodle. I was a little skeptical about buying a puppy online but since my friend had a good experience with a puppy she bought I felt comfortable. My husband told me to buy two of them since "Felisha" had a brother named Freddie and a sister named Fiona and the video was absolutely adorable. I was uncertain how well she would train and I was about to start a new job in a few weeks , so I only bought "Felisha". Felisha who we named Bella or Bellabear is what we like to call her is an amazing puppy. She trained in 1 month time. She is an extremely smart dog. She is a loving, fun, happy puppy and she brings us all so much joy. My 3 kids, my husband and myself could not imagine our lives without her. She has such a great temperament. Based on our experience I have been recommending Premier pups to family and friends. Bella has an Instagram account if you would like to follow us: bella_minigoldendoodle
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.
We adopted Tito last April. It was scary purchasing a pup, without meeting him first. Premier was so kind, answering all our questions. We took him to our vet the next day and they found him very healthy. Tito has made us laugh each day and this week, we celebrated his first birthday! I would adopt again from Premier and have recommended them to our friends.
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.
