Abileigh just turned 1! We had a wonderful experience with premier pups. Initially around this time last year we had put a deposit down for a mini goldendoodle with a breeder closer to home. A few weeks later we had some red flags and started feeling uneasy with the situation as they were not answering our questions or returning our calls/emails. I called premier pups about this litter specifically and they were so knowledgeable and helpful. Within hours there was only one pup left in this litter and we put our deposit down! They sent me videos and pictures the several weeks before she was ready to come home. She flew from Ohio to Charlotte in May. I was very nervous she would be traumatized from the flight but she jumped out of the crate into my arms at the airport and starting licking me and hasn’t stopped since. She has been a very healthy puppy and everywhere she goes everyone instantly falls in love with her. She has been a wonderful addition to our family and we will definitely use premier pups again in the future.
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.
We are so happy with the new member of our family, Boomer is perfect ,he brought a lot of joy and love in our home. Thanks to Premier Pups, they answered all of our questions and they are very professional, they made the transition very easy. Again thanks, Bescansa Family.
Already in love with Ellie ?? and she’s only been a part of our family for 16 days! Ellie learns very quickly and can sit; lie down, shake and come when called. Plus she’s an avid Ohio State fan! Premier Pups has been very supportive and cares about their puppies.
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!
ive begged for years looking on this website for years and have the love of my life now my little brother!
I got Shiloh 10 months ago from Premier Pups, and we just celebrated his 1st birthday. Shiloh is the happiest, friendliest, silliest, most lovable dog I could ever imagine. He learned (or either knew) how to “sit” the first day I had him! Premier Pups drove him to me in Virginia from Ohio, and made the purchase process extremely easy. They even checked up on us a few days and weeks after he came home. If I were to get another dog, I would first look at Premier Pups. I could not imagine my life without Shiloh, and he has easily become a favorite among my friends and family.
A good nap after meal :)
Was definitely nervous ordering a dog online... but it was the best decision I ever made in my life! Had been dreaming of a goldendoodle for years and my Jordy boy is so much better than I ever could have imagined. He is the sweetest little boy with the most beautiful coat I have ever seen! Being an F1 there was a chance he would shed, but he hasn’t shed at all! Premier pups was amazing from start to finish. They let me FaceTime him before making a decision and that did me in! If I ever were to get Jordy a sibling it would absolutely be from premier pups.
I was very wary of any place that I would get my first dog from. I did all the research for local places for Mini Goldendoodles, but stumbled upon Premier Pups, and knew this was the place to get my pup. My one concern of a place too far to drive to was having him in cargo for flights. Wrigley ( Formerly Sawyer), had two flights to get to me. One to Atlanta, and one to Tampa. I was able to track his flight the whole way, a picture was sent to me of him during transfer in Atlanta, and picking him up from cargo was easy & Wrigley was unbothered from the journey. I've heard horror stories of people who got "mini" Goldendoodles, and they're now 90-140 lbs. Wrigley is now a year and a half old, full-grown, and 25 lbs- a typical mini size. He's the most amazing dog, constantly learning, and so cuddly and sweet to every person and dog. The only thing I wish I knew about this breed is how often they need to be groomed. After about 8 months old, it's an every 6 week process, which gets expensive. A small cost to a worthwhile companion though. The one concern I voiced about my process with Premier Pups afterward the whole ordeal was swiftly handled. I received a call from the owner who apologized and corrected the small problem. 10/10 will use for my next puppy.
