Greetings from the puppies!

We have a wonderful life as newborn pups. The 80 degree weather is perfect for us during our early weeks of life. Our momma dog, Sandy knows just when to feed us, stimulate us to go potty, provide early neurological training and  to take breaks for herself. She also flips us over when helping us go potty/poo which is good for our early neurological stimulation. It is also very healthy for us to crawl over one another and vie for position when feeding which is why a litter of at least two or more pups is the healthiest way for a puppy to be raised.  This increases our stress tolerance and promotes gentleness and friendliness as we grow into adults. Although Trina has learned how to successfully socialize a singleton puppy into a gentle and friendly adult when that has occurred from an artificial insemination procedure.

Our eyes are beginning to open and are tiny slits currently. All four of us will be able to see Sandy, the world around us and the people in our lives, by Thursday!

Sweet Dreams.


P.S. For future owners: Puppy Pick  visits will be Aug. 17th through the 24th or even the weekend of the 30th if needed. Puppy transitions to their new home will be at 9 weeks, the weekend of September 20th, 2014.

Key Things to remember once your puppy comes home:

  • Have your puppy on a flexible schedule that fits your family and/or the basic schedule of your other dogs, if this is an addition.  During the day, the puppy will need to go out every two or three hours when you are home, ten to fifteen minutes after eating/drinking, and immediately when waking up from sleeping. I'm happy to provide a sample sketch for you of a schedule if needed.
  • Doodles want to please and are very intelligent. They respond very well to treats and positive reinforcement. Your puppy will have cuddly times. He/she will also have more active and playful moments and those are not the times for cuddling. Redirect with a toy/playing, walking, rawhide, or trick training with treats (15-20 minutes) whenever your puppy is displaying playful/nipping behavior. Playing with other dogs can be also very helpful when your puppy needing to work off his energy in a positive way. When your puppy is restful or sleeping is the time to cuddle. Signing up for a puppy class at 4-6 months old can be beneficial to all dog owners!

F1b Miniature Goldendoodle Puppies are Here, Born on Thursday, July 17th, 2014!

Greetings from four puppies!
We are enjoying eating, sleeping and eating some more. We have wonderful care from our Momma Sandy who knows just when to feed us and when to take a break and socialize with people.
(Momma Sandy is lifting her leg, hoping to receive some luvin' from Trina. Notice the safety rails on the sides of the box so the puppies can crawl behind Sandy and keep breathing)


We are secure and warm in our whelping box.  We came safely into the world in the middle of the night. Two of us are curly females and two of us are cream curly/wavy males. We are very tiny at this age and fit in the palm of a woman's hand.

Enjoy our photos and this blog will be updated weekly, as we grow in leaps and bounds. We double in weight in our first week and then gain 1/2 a pound per week or so in the weeks that follow. We will be between 4 1/2 and 6 lbs by 9 weeks of age!

The males are on top and the females are on the bottom!

We'll be in touch soon. 
Love, the puppies!

F1b Miniature Goldendoodle Puppies will be here soon, 15-25 lbs full grown!

We are local in Seattle, WA 98188.The price of our doodles is $1600 for our F1b miniature (18-25 lb) doodles. This comes with a 2 year genetic guarantee via a contract. As your puppy grows, we provide video updates and pictures. We raise your puppy in our home in a whelping box initially. Once the puppy is old enough, we have a schedule, puppy play times outside in our large backyard, individualized socialization (including our 3 year old daughter) and some crate training for potty training,  beginning around 6 1/2 weeks of age.  Our version of crate training is where the puppy gets used to a crate at nap time and at night.  We let the puppy out every two or three hours during the day, unless eating, drinking or waking, then 10-15 minutes later. We also have a play pen for the puppies so they can sleep together at times and play a little if the weather is poor. Crate training or using a more confined space such as a laundry room, is helpful to the puppy, when you are gone, or at night, so that they don't chew on something unwanted or pee everywhere. You want to have plenty of interaction with your puppy in your living space and outdoors. 

When it's time to take your puppy home, we provide a puppy care package. We do a vet check, dew claws, de-worming, and provide initial shots. 

We love raising doodles, they are the best!!!

4 puppies are here! 2 females and 2 males. There is one spot available.


Sandy the doodle mom, above. Frankie (as listed on the right side of my blog) is the dad.

 The pups are listed by name from left to right: Sadie, Lu Lu, Female with Red Collar, Black Male, Jackson, Luna and Lucy. Enjoy your transition to your wonderful new homes from now until the end of July! :)
