We've been looking for another mini goldendoodle for over a year and have had really bad luck. Finally located Premier pups one day while searching on google on Friday and got our puppy on Sunday so fast! He was shipped directly to Phoenix, Az in a crate with food and water and he made it safe and sound. We instantly feel in love with (sawyer) renamed to Oakley. He is everything we wanted and more. Our older 2 1/2 old Cooper is now a big brother and is still trying to keep up with Oakley. Great personality you can tell he came from a good place. No barking, being quiet lovable little guy. Thank you for breeding our little guy. ?? The McKnight's
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 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.
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!
Holly has just arrived in our home about a week ago. She is so cute, goofy and well behaved, though we still got done ways to go with potty training. She is energetic, and very family friendly. (She puts up with being carried around wrong every day by the little kids!) The premierpups staff was very supporting and we would highly suggest them to anyone looking for a new pup.
Stella has been such a great addition to our family! We had a great experience with premier pups! She is smart, loving and adorable at 6 months old!!
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!
Anna just turned 1 year old today! She is the sweetest dog on earth. So glad we chose Premier Pups to find her. They were so nice to send pictures while we waited til we could pick her up and bring her home. They provided all sorts of great information and even sent her home with some puppy meds. I would love to get another puppy from Premier but my husband says one is enough at our age!
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.
