FAQ - My Doodle Crush


We provide you with a Two Year Genetic Health Guarantee that your puppy will be free from life-threatening congenital defects or we will replace your puppy with one of equal value as soon as possible!

We do a set schedule of pictures every 2 weeks. We don’t mind requests at all if the mom is with us, however we do have some of our mom’s with gaurdian homes which simply means we “own” the mom but a gaurdian family treats her like a family member of thier own 🙂

We use to send them requests all the time but gaurdian families started to regret the commitment…

So to accommodate a peaceful uninterrupted life style for our gaurdian homes we promise them we will not send extra pic requests outside our regular 2 week schedule.

That’s a great question, first of all, my parents bred small poodles when I was a kid. So some of my favorite memories as a child were me and my siblings taking care of the puppies. That was truly the highlight of life for us.

So when I got married, my wife and I decided to look into that so that we can provide our 3 children with a similar experience. We have since been breeding for over a decade now, And sure enough, our kids  ABSOLUTELY LOVE taking care of the puppies. It’s also become a major highlight of life for them.

Be sure to call or text us just before or after you send a deposit so we can link your deposit to the puppy you would like. Quit often these litters sell out fast and this helps us avoid collecting 2 deposits on 1 puppy.

You can rest assured you are getting a healthy well-rounded puppy. We start when they are born with early stimulation. All of our babies come from health-tested parents and lines. We also include the following:

-> Puppy care package includes paperwork that consists of:

  • Vaccinations, medications, and deworming record.
  • A preventative deworming medicine to assist the puppy’s transition home.
  • Microchip number and directions to register your puppy.
  • Our 2-year health guarantee puppy contract.

-> We also include:

  • A bag of dog food
  • A toy with the scent of the litter.

-> Lifetime breeder support. Our dogs are our family and once you have a My Doodle Crush puppy, you are a part of our extended family. We are here for you for the life of your puppy.

 The puppy food that we use is the Purina Pro Plan 30/20 All Ages, Chicken and Rice Formula. However, If you want to switch the puppy to a brand of your choice, a slow transition would be necessary. Here is an example of what a transition would look like:

  • Day 1: 25% new diet and 75% old diet.
  • Day 3: 50% new diet and 50% old diet.
  • Day 5: 75% new diet and 25% old diet.
  • Day 7: 100% new diet.

This is just a suggestion for the easiest transition but always check with your vet before making the switch.

When we got started with the breeding, we initially focused only on purebred. English retrievers and poodles. That was until our older son had to get a major surgery and we were laid up in a hospital with him for a while. while we were there, we received almost daily visits from therapy dogs that looked like“ live ready bears “ they were always either golden doodles or bernedoodles. that was our introduction to the breed.

As we started doing some research on them we found out about their “ low to non-shedding traits.” Their intelligence and trainability are remarkable.

That’s when we deviated from breeding purebreds to doodles exclusively.

The answer is YES! jk…but really that’s the best we got because we truly absolutely love both breeds!

F1 refers to the cross between two purebred dogs- A Bernese Mountain Dog crossed to a Poodle or a Golden Retriever crossed to a Poodle. This generation cross gives a 50/50 mix, genetically they will have a combination of attributes between the two parents. Coats in F1s can vary in terms of the percentage of hair shedding. Some will be nearly completely non-shedding and others will have a percentage of hair that still sheds.

F1b’s are a Bernedoodle crossed to a Poodle- with 75% poodle, their coats are usually fairly consistently, low to non-shedding. Typically half of the litter will be have a curly coat and half will have a looser wavy coat. They are more suited to a family that may have mild allergies or that feel strongly about shedding in their dog.

We understand that getting a puppy is a pretty exciting undertaking for any family, and we want to keep you as engaged as possible in the process.

That being said, we have to operate with scheduled updates so that we can continue to provide the best possible care to our moms and pups while maintaining our normal family life activities ( kids, work, life in general etc. ) .

So while it may be exciting to request updated photos every other day, we ask that you please adhere to our update schedule. A good rule of thumb is, we give photo updates every 3 weeks

So expect photos at:

– Birth to 1 week

-4 weeks ( that’s when we often have families select their puppy in the order in which deposits were received )

-7 weeks

When pups turn 8 weeks, It’s a Happy Day!!  because they now can go home!

First of all, you can always fly into town to pick up your puppy from us. We can meet with you at the Airport and hand you the puppy there for free. please contact the airline to learn regulations surrounding your ability/requirements to fly with your puppy in the cabin. (it’s a pretty simple process in our experience )

Or we can fly the puppy to you.

Prices vary based on flights. Along with the Plane ticket, You will also receive:

-Paperwork that consists of:

  • Vaccination and deworming record
  • Microchip number and directions to register your puppy.
  • Our 2-year health guarantee puppy contract.
  • A Baggie of Purina Pro Plan 30/20 All Ages Dog Food.
  • Final Dewormer Syringe to help puppy on the transition home.
  • A Puppy Toy


Final payment is due at the time we meet with you and give you your puppy.

If we are flying the puppy to you, final payment (including any shipping costs) is due as soon as we provide you airway bill number and plane ticket information. That typically happens within 2 to 5 days of us flying the puppy to you.

The final payments can be made via bank transfer, cashier’s or certified check, Paypal  or credit card ( please be aware there is a 3% finances charge fee if using PayPal or card ( debit or credit card )

Our puppies are family pets only! Although many breeders do a good job taking care of their mom dogs, We do not sell our puppies breeders.

As for spaying and neutering, We do however believe in delayed spaying and neutering, to allow the benefits of the hormones for bones and joint development. Please consult with your licensed veterinarian to help determine the best time to spay or neuter. We definitely encourage families to do their homework and weigh the pros and cons of delayed neutering and make a decision that is best for them.

Deposits are not refundable, but the also do not expire and can be used for a different puppy or litter in the future. They are applied to your final balance for your puppy.

When we receive a deposit for a puppy, we no longer advertise that puppy to other inquiring families. That makes it challenging for us to consider a puppy spoken for, and then have to start the process all over from scratch if a family changes their minds.

Should you decide you no longer want that puppy, you are welcome to transfer your deposit to another puppy or litter pick position. However the deposit itself is non-refundable.

In the unlikely event that something unexpected happens to the specific puppy you have placed a deposit for, we will refund your deposit or apply it to another choice.

We do offer potty training services but have to keep it at no more than 3 puppies at the time. The reason being, we feel like we do our best work when we have no more than 3 puppies at the time.
Prior to opting into our potty training program, we ask that you watch this youtube video so you have a clear understanding of both what we do, and what you’ll need to do to keep up with the puppy’s progress once he or she comes home.
We will get the toughest days or weeks out of the way, but Please review this video before accepting training. We want you to gain a better understanding of your role to continuing the potty training process when puppy gets home, so puppy does not back track.

Both have their advantages, but we recommend using a litter box. This is a very helpful video that should help you understand why.
