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.
Gus has been home with us a little over a week now and he is nothing but delightful! He’s the softest, sweetest, most playful pup we could’ve found. He seems too be surpassing his ‘hypoallergenic’ reputation as well! Thank you.
We have had our pup Livi (former name Phoenix) for almost 2 months now. We are very pleased with our experience with Premier Pups. Every detail of what to expect with our pup was clearly communicated through videos, emails, and phone calls. Livi was healthy and it took her about 2 weeks to eat on her own and adjust to our home. We have crate trained her and she enjoys being in it. Our family is blessed to have her and thankful for our experience. Thank you Premier! ??
Couldn't have had a better experience with Premier Pups. From our initial phone call after finding The web site to 3rd follow-up phone call during his first week with us, we have been very pleased with our experience in finding, acquiring and caring for our pup during his first week with us. Very professional and very caring.
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.
we picked winnie on the website in late april, premier was very helpful (and patient) with us and all of our questions we had about the pickup process and trying to get more pictures of her! she has been the perfect edition to our family, and she has been the sweetest, and most loving puppy we could’ve asked for, we will be forever grateful for premier, as they were able to help us find our sweet girl!
Sadie is a fun, loving dog that enjoys her toilet paper and paper towels... a lot. She has the biggest personality and LOVES every person she meets. With dogs she’s a little baby but she warms up to them eventually. Sadie loves playing and going on walks but when she’s not up for it she’ll be sure to let you know. If Sadie hasn’t seen you in a while she sing, literally. Occasionally she will pee but it’s happy pee. We love her with all our heart and she has brought so much love and happiness to our family. If anyone got their mini golden doodle last April in the litter with Sansa, Sunday, Sloane and Skylar please contact us!! We would love to see how Sadie’s (Sloane) siblings are :)
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.
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.
We got LouLou at the beginning of May and have loved her since the minute we got her! She is the biggest bundle of joy and brings us all so much happiness. Premier Pups was so wonderful through the entire process, and they answered all of the (many) questions we had! We couldn’t be happier!
