Welcome Owners and Breeders!

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION BEFORE STARTING A DISCUSSION.

If you visited a breeder's home in person at any time before or after getting your puppy you are permitted to add a recommendation for a breeder.* Other criteria applies. Doodles were bred to be companion animals and thrive on human companionship; breeders who house their breeding companions in kennels, out building or dogs kept primarily as outside dogs are not eligible for recommendation. Doodles should be bred with health, temperament and coat quality as the number 1 priorities as they were originally bred to perform service for people with allergies. Breeders who do not health test or that can not provide proof of testing are not eligible for recommendation. health records consist of OFA / PennHIP, CERF, PRA, vWD, Thyroid, Heart. A letter from the vet stating a dog is ok to breed is NOT clearance for breeding Before posting a recommendation please check to see if your breeder is already listed. If they are already listed add your recommendation to the current discussion. This will allow us to save room and not lose other valuable recommendations Click on Start Discussion (toward the bottom of this group, above the comments section) to add a recommendation for a new breeder. The Title Should be the breeder's kennel name only. If your breeder is already listed do not start a new discussion, simply reply to the current discussion. Do not include location information, breeder's name or website in the Title.

  • Hi, could one of you advise me what to do if i would like to lodge a "stay away from this breeder" record or even just a "hummmm, be suspicious" note on DK?

    I'm a bit worked up about it so have't done my usual exhaustive search of DK to find instructions/precedent. I don't want to be inappropriate, just desperate to help other people find what they need to make responsible decisions. Upset and guilty because i only now know that i didn't.

    Why am i worked up?

    I have recently heard (and seen video) a great deal of shocking things about the breeder i got my lovely Hector from. I tried to research them before i bought from them but found nothing. As a first time doodle owner it was tough to research as i was on the outside looking in and DK was one of the few places i found and being mainly USA, had nothing on this UK breeder. So now i am so frustrated that there WAS bad stuff to find, i just didn't find it when i was a newbie.

    Thanks.

  • I have asked the second recommendation to post within the first discussion.  I asked that to be done the day it was posted and have yet to have the person making the  recommendation contact me to ask for clarification.

  • What's missing in everyone's attempt to post recommendations for Jaynie is that people are either posting 'comments' down here OR posting discussions in the main forum (not this group).  Recommendations ONLY go in this group, but NOT in this comments section.  Right above this comments section is a list of discussions and underneath them to the left it says "Add a Discussion" <-- THAT is where you click to add a discussion.

    In the photo below you'll see two arrows.  The green arrow points to the comments box.  This is where I wrote all this stuff you are reading right now.  DO NOT post recommendations there.

    The red arrow points to where you should click to post a NEW recommendation for a breeder that has not yet been recommended. 
    3366307069?profile=originalJoanne, your link goes to Jerseydoodles which is a different breeder than Jaynie.  So whoever added to that one did it in the wrong place.  The key is you have to 1) Check to see if that breeder already has a recommendation.  If not, then 2) "Add a Discussion" to start a new recommendation. 

  • To Jaynie
    I was not a member of this group and with very little effort, I found this right away Here you go. It is under JerseyDoodles

  • hi everyone- i am searching for a breeder who breeds very TALL doodles- it doesn't matter from what state- can anyone connect me in the right direction. i would so appreciate.

  • Deleting Recommendations

    Some breeders are new and not known to the general public, I have have been checking websites to see who is testing and who is not, if there is no mention of testing on your site and or it appears that the breeder is a kennel vs a home operation, raising both puppies and dogs in the home I will contact the breeder to ask for proof. If the breeder is a member of the ILA / ALAA I will check for testing on the database.

    Any breeder who can not provide proof of testing will have their recommendation deleted. This is not directed at any one breeder and it is to be fair to the breeders who do go above and beyond to test and provide home raised puppies.
  • Jill,

    There are a few hits for copy & pasting. Make sure that the Start Discussion not Add Comment, Your kennel name should be all that appears in the Subject line, past questions in the text box and answer each, any additional information can be added to the end.

    Easies Way
    Click & hold while highlighting the test
    Right click to, window will open with Copy option
    Right click again, window will open with Past option

    Non Mouse Option
    Highlight text
    Ctrl C will copy the text
    Ctrl V will past the text
  • please remember to put the breeder's name in the Subject line, this will allow people looking for a specific breeder to find them easily.

    Also please cut and past the questions from the Rules section and answer each question. Any additional information can be added to the end.
  • I love all of the great feedback we are getting! Thanks for making this work! Now people looking for puppies know who they can trust if they cant make a personal visit!

Tango Wool Labradoodles

Does anyone have reviews or comments about Tango Wool Labradoodles? Our first doodle died unexpectedly at age 3 and I am unsatisfied by the breeder's response, so I don't want to use her again. Tango Wool is not far from me and I have one recommendation from an acquaintance, but was hoping for more. Please message me! Thank you!

Looking for a breeder in the Northeast -- NJ/PA/NY -- Beyond Bliss?

Hello, Searching for the "right" breeder near(ish) to me in Northern NJ. At this point I am happiest from what I hear about Beyond Bliss in Evans Mill, NY. It is quite far from me (4 hours) so I will not see the place until I pick up the puppy -- in several months.... I am wondering if anyone has any experience with them positive or negative. Feel free to private message me if that is necessary for rules... Thanks in advance!
