Everyone meet Cali, formerly Brandi! After having our human baby, we knew she’d want a companion. She loves dogs so we started researching and quickly came to the conclusion a Mini Goldendoodle was the best choice! These two are inseparable! Cali will not leave our 6 month olds side. Thank you Premier Pups!
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.
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!
I had been looking for a goldendoodle for months. I wanted a girl but fell in love with my boys sweet face as soon as I saw him on the website. Him and his sister (boxer names Olive) are the lights of my life. He has the best temperament. He goes to the office with me and my colleagues cannot believe what a calm and laid back personality he has. He has been the easiest dog to train ever. The Premier team was great throughout the process and the flight experience was completed without a hitch. I will definitely go back to Premier when I'm ready for another one.
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.
This is Myla. We got her at the end of July and she was the perfect dog for us. Premier pups did a wonderful job with her. They got her all up on shots, took care of her and made sure she was healthy to come home. Myla is the best dog we have ever owned thanks to premier pups. They were kind enough to send us pictures of her, facetime us, and they met us halfway to give her to us. I could tell they truly care for each of the pups they breed and give them unconditional love. I HIGHLY recommend premier pups for your choice of a breeder. Thank you premier pups for giving us the best dog ever!
Bosa changed to Lucky came home in March of 2019. He was born 1/3/19 and we absolutely adore him. The purchase experience from Premier Pups was excellent and we plan to be repeat customers. Our vet was very impressed with Lucky’s health and condition. Siblings can contact us on Instagram @doodimlucky
Purchased two Mini Golden's in the last year and we are in love. Excellent process and great quality pups!
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 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.
