Getting Ready for Puppy

In order to make the transition to your home go smoother, I wanted to offer a list of items that would be helpful to have before you take your puppy home. If you plan on purchasing some of these items on Amazon we would appreciate if you used our links found on our document.  They are at no additional charge to you and greatly help our breeding program!

​Crate- I recommend getting a wire crate with removable tray until your puppy is potty trained then you can splurge on a nicer crate if you’d like.
Mini doodles (25-40 pounds): 36 inches
Medium doodles (40-70 lbs): 36-42 inches
If you have room 48 inches is great because doodles like to stretch out like frogs.
I also recommend the Precision brand because it has 2 doors for additional versatility, removeable tray, and a divider to adjust the size as your puppy grows. I've also heard other brands have had their plastic trays crack and are pricey to replace. 


Bowls- Stainless steel bowls with slow feeder option. The tray is also great as doodles tend to get water in their beards and drip water and it has a bonus lick pad.

Leash and Collar

Leash and Collar

Collar and Leash- its a great idea to get your puppy used to a collar at a young age. I recommend a 8-10" collar for 8 week old mini goldendoodles and a 10-13" collar for 8 week old mini Bernedoodles. These are a great option because they are easily adjustable, have neoprene padding, and reflective threads.


Harness - I recommend getting a harness when you are training your puppy to walk on a leash so they aren't pulling on their neck.
8 -10 week old mini Bernedoodle - 14-18" chest girth
8-10 week old mini Goldendoodle - 12-16" chest girth

Detangler Spray- "THE STUFF" is AMZAZING at keeping your doodle's hair silky, repelling dirt, and helping detangle doodle hair.  Spray it on after their bath or while your brushing them and it will help and work through any matts.  I love this stuff!
