Breeding Dogs and Puppies live in the home and not in a kennel, out building, garage or outside?
The dogs all live in a home environment.
Was home and property clean and pleasant?
Amy's place is immaculate! I cannot overstate what a wonderful job she does maintaining a clean environment for her animals.
Where you allowed to view health records and testing for the parent dogs or other dogs owned by the breeder?
We were given full health profiles on both the parents.
Were the dogs well groomed?
We encountered well over a dozen dogs of different ages in our trips to Fox Creek Farms and they were all obviously very well taken care of and certainly well groomed.
Were the dogs well behaved and obedient?
Amy definitely has control of all her animals. On the rare occassion she had to correct a behavior, the dogs listened immediately. my children are somewhat timid around dogs and they did well, even when confronted with half a dozen adult dogs as we entered the house.
Was at least one of the parents on site for the visitation?
Both the Dam and the Sire were on site and we had the opportunity to interact with both of them. I had met the Sire on our initial trip to look at the facility as well. I fell in love with him that day and I was so excited to learn that he was Sire to the litter our puppy came from.
Why did you choose this breeder?
I stumbled onto Amy's website while I was researching different breeds. In all honesty, we were so impressed with our initial interactions with her with sort of chose the breeder before the breed. It definitely helped us feel confident that we were making the best decision for a breed for our family.
Would you buy another dog from this breeder again in the future?
My husband and I were raised with dogs in our homes, but this is our first puppy of our own. Our family dogs came from rescues, not breeders, so this process was all new to us. That said, I can't imagine a better breeder experience than what we got from Amy Lane. She was so responsive to any questions we had along the way, even before we had decided on getting one of her dogs. I found the research process difficult, particularly regarding breeders. How do you find a reputable breeder if you don't have a personal recommendation? What initially drew me to Amy was the very prominent section of her website entitled How to Spot a Puppymill. She is very approachable and, at no point, did I feel uncomfortable asking her even the most mundane questions (and I ask ALOT of questions). When we were still in the decision phase, I found a woman in our area who had goldendoodle from Fox Creek Farms. She was happy to immediately provide a reference for Amy and even brought her dog to us so we could meet it. Every one of Amy's Goldendoodles I have had contact with have such wonderful personalities! I would highly recommend looking into Fox Creek Farms if you are in the mid atlantic region and looking for a Goldendoodle.
