Hi!  Welcome to the wonderful world of mini golden doodles! Being a multi-generational cross between approved poodles and  approved golden retrievers, our mini golden doodles are a delightful blend of loyalty, smartness, gratefulness, companionship, unending playfulness, and forever love. Bonding quickly to their new owners, mini golden doodles become an integral part of the lives of every person in the family. Seeming to be able to read the emotions of their families, these doodles will engage in your sadness, your energy level, and your desire for closeness and love. Wonderful with children, they will be their sweetest companions, gentle with the small and energetic with the older. There is no other word to describe them than AMAZING.  

We offer puppies:
- whose parents are Embark-approved

- box-trained and bell-trained
- socialized
- all shots are up to date 
- vet checked three times

Medical Information



     Our puppies will be vet-checked multiple times and have up-to-date shots when you take your puppy home.  


      These puppies are being sold on a "strict spay and neuter contract."  This means that none of these puppies will be sold for breeding purposes.  Your puppy needs to be spayed or neutered by the time he or she is 7 months old or when your veterinarian says it is safe to do so. I will need a phone call or an invoice from you or your vet once this has been done.  There is a wonderful place in West Michigan, C-Snip, run by volunteer vets who do spaying and neutering for around $120.00. It is an immaculate place, and I have NEVER had a problem. Their goal is to keep unwanted dogs off the streets. Your own vet will probably charge over $300.00.



       Dewclaws are removed at one day old.  Inoculations are given at one month, two months, three months, and four months.  Rabies shot is given at the fourth inoculation. The pups are dewormed twice. IT IS IMPERATIVE that your puppy have its fourth parvo virus inoculation before it meets other dogs, goes on other grass (woods, rest stops, dog parks, or anywhere any living animal could have been, etc.)  Parvo virus can kill a puppy in a day.  Mites, ticks and mosquitos are also very dangerous for your dog. They carry many diseases, like heartworm and Lyme disease. 


      Within two weeks of your pup's home-going, your little pup must be fully checked by your vet and have his second set of shots. If anything is wrong, we will pay for what needs to be done. This does not include shots, poisoning whether accidentally or purposely, worming, parasites, and normal well-check visits. You will have a 1-year health guarantee, which will be invalid if the shot schedule and the vet checks have been ignored.

        I'm Karen. Hi!  About 29 years ago, I decided that my three children should see science upfront and firsthand.  Since we had a golden retriever, I wanted to breed her and have my kids play a part in the whole process of birthing and caring for the puppies.  Having been a teacher and a science major, I saw other teachers bring their dogs to school to be "the pillow" for kids to curl up with while reading extra credit books. I began to take my golden retriever Lacy to school. It was amazing how quickly the children finished their daily work in order to spend time with patient and loving Lacy.
        After a few days, a mom and her child came in to the classroom to tell me that young Calvin could not come back to my classroom. He had had an allergy attack and needed hospitalization for asthma. Sadly, Lacy had to go back home. I was heart-broken.
        A few years later, I saw Calvin running in the schoolyard grass with a huge, playful, curly dog. I asked him how it came to be that he could have this long-haired, shaggy dog. He replied that this was a standard golden doodle, and it didn't shed or cause allergies! I headed to my computer to do some research....
         And so the adventure began. I wanted as many allergic kids and adults to finally enjoy and love these large, medium, and mini dogs. For those who could never have  a dog, my mission became placing healthy dogs into empty homes.
