Ginger - F1 Labradoodle
"Dear Debbie, I just wanted to let you know that our 4 1/2 month old labradoodle- "Ginger" is an awesome dog! For our first time owning a dog, we could not have asked for a better experience! She loves our kids, other dogs, and basically anyone she meets. We are in puppy training classes where she is excelling not only with basic commands, but sit up and roll over (very cute!). She is housebroken and crate trained. She rings the bell that we hang on the door to go outside! (Honestly, we didn't think that was possible for a dog to learn). Her temperament has really been the best of both breeds ... Friendly like a lab and smart like a poodle. Overall, she has her wild puppy moments, but is a mellow dog! Our vet loves to watch her grow - a lab body and poodle legs with mix of hair from both. My allergies have not acted up at all! Thank you for allowing us to visit your kennel and meet her Mom, Dad and siblings. You were very patient and informative for us. Please feel free to use us as a reference for anyone considering one of your dogs!! We will definitely be recommending you and your Labradoodles to our friends and family! Thanks again for everything!!!" - Tom & Lisa
Wilber - F1 Labradoodle
"Many people have approached us to ask about Wilbur. We are so pleased, that we highly recommend you and even had people call us at home so we can give them your website. Thank you so much for giving him his care before we got him. We love him dearly! What a joy!" -Tina
Rowen - F1 Labradoodles
"I cannot say enough about Rowen, he is such a great dog! He's laid back, playful, intelligent, funny, loyal, fearless, loving, a great playmate, an excellent retriever and swimmer, well behaved, friendly, quiet, and much more! Rowen has bought much to our lives and we're so glad that he is ours (or should I say we are his?). Everyone who meets him falls in love with him and wants to take him home with them. He's the perfect boating companion and he loves having a big brother to goof around with- he seems to have made Baron younger (even though he's going on 11 years old). I have only met one other dog who likes to retrieve as much as Rowen does: it's hilarious to watch him chase after the ball hopping like a rabbit. Rowen is the ultimate friend and thrives off his buddies, humans and dog alike! He is such a fantastic guy; he even likes to play in the leaves! I can't believe he's a year old -time just flies by. Thank you so much for the greatest puppy ever, Debbie! - Sally & Ann
Mr. Wiggles - F1 Goldendoodle
"Hi Debbie, Just wanted to drop a line to give you an update on our awesome Puppy. As I mentioned to you when I picked him up, the puppy was a Christmas gift from Santa. As such, the kids received him on Christmas Day, and although the reception and reaction was based more on the confusion of having a dog in the family room than excitement, the kids LOVE the new member of our family. Although I was hoping for something more......"mature", his official new name is Mr. Wiggles. This was my oldest sons idea (Hudson who will be 5 in February). When the puppy crate was unwrapped and the gate opened, the puppy came out of course, and as he approached the dumbfounded and confused kids he was wagging his tail so aggressively that his entire body wiggled. To this my son yelled " Hey, we should name him Wiggles!!!!" So, needless to say the puppy is doing great. He has been an awesome addition to the family, and we couldn't be happier. He had a Doctor checkup last Monday and everything was great. In fact, the doc and his wife were both very impressed with him his demeanor and his manners. They congratulated us on a great choice of dog. I have attached a couple of pics of Wiggles and the kids. Thank you so much for your help. Wiggles is awesome and truly is the perfect fit for the family! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!" - Joe
Douglas - F1 Goldendoodle
"Mr. July" in the DoodleKisses 2011 Goldendoodle calendar.
"Hi Debbie, Douglas is an awesome dog. We absolutely love him to pieces and he fits in perfectly with our family. In the past few months, he's really gotten in touch with his retrieving genes and when we go to the dog park he'll fetch the entire time we're there. This summer he graduated from Puppy K and received the AKC Star Puppy certification, and he's continued his training with a Basic Obedience class this fall. He continues to do well in his classes and picks up on new commands quickly. Douglas is extremely intelligent and often learns from watching other dogs perform behaviors. We've also taken Doug to a few romps and public spaces like farmers markets. Out in public, Douglas is such a little gentleman. We cannot walk more than a few feet without someone asking what kind of a dog he is, wanting to take a picture or pet him, and commenting on how handsome he is, especially in regards to his reddish/apricot coat. We've even had a few individuals inquire about you as the breeder because they themselves have been thinking about getting a dog and love Douglas's look and demeanor, as well as the fact that he doesn't shed. We, of course, have highly recommended you as a breeder for those who have been interested. We couldn't have asked for a better pup. He's easy going, loves to play, enjoys his belly rubs, and loves other people and other dogs". - Best, Megan, Andrea, and Douglas
Here are recent pictures of “purple,” now Sheina. Sheina has been a joy since we brought her home last year. She is loving, sweet, friendly and always ready to please. She loves to play, especially with my son’s socks and her puppy friend next door. She loves her toys and has been easy to train. She catches on quickly and understands what we are trying to teach her. She has brought so much joy and pleasure to our home and we love her dearly. If we ever decide on getting a second Goldendoodle we would not hesitate coming back to Countryside Doodles." - Thank you, Sherry

Stormy - F1 Labradoodle
It is quite obvious,based on our experience with Stormy (aka Pink), that she had been treated in an excellent fashion under your care and must have excellent lineage. Not only does she have a great pack instinct (followed entire family without a leash when we took a pit stop haft way home after aquiring her), but she is wounderful around our home,her kennel,our kitchen,family room,bathing,sleeping next to us in her kennel by our bed at night,outside,in our car (in her kennel),taking walks (little hesitant with leash but excellent with out it - we are working on the leash). everywhere!!! She sits,stays a bit,fetches and returns,stays well in her comfy kennel with the door closed when necessary, and always has been giving her paw (as you know). She barely barks. we simply love her. I'll keep in touch and send pictures soon. Take Care and thanks for bringing so much joy to our family
Sincerely, Tom,Helen,Matt,Chris and Lauren
One year old update:
I am completely satisfied with Stormy, my female F1 Labradoodle, Stormy is a sweetheart, loves all things that move, is a complete part of our family,and is very active and healthy. Keep in mind that for any dog, a great deal of care,discipline,exercise,love and attention is needed by the owner, which my family and I consistently provide to Stormy. Stormy gets lots of exercise with me (i.e.,jogging,roller bladeing,soccer, walks,etc.) I'm sure this plays a significant role in her current disposition. The most amazing thing is that Stormy only barks once or twice when she needs something. She never yaps which is wonderful. Stormy is Tom's shadow when ever Tom is home.
My experience with Debbie has been absolutely outstanding. It is very apparent she is a dedicated professional breeder. My impression is she is very trustworthy. She recently took care of Stormy while we were on vacation. Stormy came back home as if she has her own special vacation visiting her relatives. We are hoping Debbie will be available again in Aug 2008 to take care of Stormy for about a week. Tom,Helen,Matt,Chris and Lauren
