We are the proud family of Cooper, an F1B mini goldendoodle. Never having had a dog, we were hesitant and wanted to make sure we maximized our experience which we did with Rustun and Thomas.
We live in Orchard Park, New York and were told of 5 other families that adopted their dogs from The Puppy Shack and were extremely happy with their experience. We now understand why! Rustun and Thomas were so responsive to all our questions and needs from our initial contact. We have had Cooper for 8 months and they continue to consistently respond to our questions which will likely continue as a first time dog family. They truly care about their dogs and the families that adopt them.
As far as Cooper goes, we could not be happier. He is gentle and loving and needless to say adorable too. He is also playful and responsive. Cooper is intelligent and his training has gone well. I have to admit, I was the weak link in getting a dog and I quickly became his biggest fan in our family. Let me tell you, he knows it too! To close, we highly recommend The Puppy Shack.
Our experience with The Puppy Shack has been great. We've had dogs all our life and never ordered a new puppy without seeing it first. We had great recommendations though and we couldn't be happier! Petee is 7 months old now and a joy to have around. He is a very happy pup and everything is fun and games to him! His favorite things to do are to play with other puppies at the dog park and to bring random things home he finds around the neighborhood. He gets along very well with his 8 year old partner, Stella. He's very laid back and smart as well. Thanks for a great pup!

We purchased a standard poodle puppy from the puppy shack this week, and I can honestly say, I have never had such an amazing experience with a puppy purchase! We have owned many puppies throughout our life and we have never been so happy with a puppy! She is socialized, use to bring groomed, she seems potty trained, leash trained and so very healthy! If I ever need a puppy again I will contact the puppy shack first! Thank you for our new family member!

I can’t begin to say enough good things about The Puppy Shack. From the moment we contacted them until months after bringing Griffey home they were nothing short of awesome. Griffey is mine and my husbands first dog so to say we had a lot of questions is an understatement, they answered all of or questions and gave us all of the information we needed to feel comfortable and confident that we were bringing home a puppy that was a good fit for us. We brought Griffey our F1B Mini goldendoodle home on 12/26/2018 and we are so glad we did! He has been the best puppy, we feel so lucky to have gotten such a sweet, smart, well tempered puppy. He was very easily potty trained, crate trained and has picked up on several commands in the short amount of time we have had Him. Not to mention he loves everyone he meets & wants to be pet by anyone who is willing. He brought so much laughter and joy into our lives that we never knew we were missing ! The Puppy Shack really care about their puppies and the families who are taking them home. When we are ready to get a second pup there is no doubt we will be going back to the Puppy Shack.
We bought our female Goldendoodle puppy, Disney, from The Puppy Shack on Sunday, September 2nd, 2018 where we met with Thomas - one of the owners. Thomas has a grooming business as well, which is also located in Johnstown. He cares about his dogs and wants them to go to good families. This means a lot to us as he wouldn't sell to just anyone.
Disney is a very calm, loving dog. We loved that we could go meet her, see her siblings, see her environment, and Disney's mom as well with the other dogs they own. She was spayed and microchipped when we got her. The Puppy Shack was amazing because they not only gave us some food that she was currently on, but vitamins too. Also, we got a toy that all the puppies played with to help Disney feel comfortable the first couple of nights at her new house. She recently had her first vet appointment and she was a happy, healthy puppy.
After seeing a video of my Maxewell playing with the breeders, I knew i had to have her. She is the most sweet, smart, playful and beautiful dog i have ever seen. Maxwell Instantly become part of the family and was happy and comfortable the moment i brought her home. She was also very easy to housebreak. The Puppy Shack was so kind to me and very informative every step of the way, and have even continued contact months after i brought Maxwell home. They raise amazing dogs and it is evident that they care deeply for them.

Hi there from sunny Los Angeles!
Let me start by saying my Husband and I can’t remember life before Theo! There are not proper words to describe the PURE JOY he’s brought to our lives and to everyone he meets!
Our favorite things about him...
*He gets an A+ for adjusting to his new home and his crate. Everyone asks how often he’s slept in our bed and that number is ZERO! He whimpered all of 30 seconds the first two nights in his crate and that was it! He has never had any accidents in his crate and maybe 15 total in the house...for only being a few months old, that’s a AWESOME.
*We love that he is eager to learn! He was playing fetch at 11 weeks and it’s still one of his favorite things to do...no matter what toy you throw. Beyond fetch, he knows all the basic commands like come, sit, down, shake, stay, and we’re working on roll over! A simple mentioned he has done extremely well with potty training. Shortly after arriving, he figured out which two doors led to the backyard so it made the process so much easier. He know to ring the bell (hanging on the door) if no one has noticed he needs to go out. Some dogs tend to ring the bell for fun, not our smart boy!
*He is starting to show his protective side. He is a loyal and loving guy, but he will bark if he gets a strange vibe. He has recently enjoyed sitting by the front door to "keep watch". If he barks and we say "its okay/no bark", he stops IMMEDIATELY. He is so smart and we LOVE knowing that while he he is extremely friendly, he has that internal desire to protect our family.
*He won over the staff at the Groomers and Vet after his FIRST VISITS! And has continued to be a gem for them. Each time time I ask how the visit went, (with normal hesitation- as he is a puppy) they have given him a wonderful report card and gush about how sweet he is! The vet and his staff love to see Theo come in for his visits. It is a relief to know that he is calm in these environments and does not have anxiety about having routine appointments with key players on "our team". Other dogs are fearful, and bark constantly...not THEO...just another reason why we love him!
*The Puppy Shack fell into our laps (vis Facebook) and we couldn't be HAPPIER! We had been searching for a Goldendoodle for the better part of one year. We researched, and researched, and RESEARCHED! We knew what we wanted and The Puppy Shack had IT ALL. They were easy to communicate with, quick to respond, and patient to answer all of our questions. It was clear they LOVE what they do, and genuinely LOVE their puppies. We loved getting video and picture updates of our puppy throughout the process. Nothing makes you more excited to meet that newest four-legged family member! Their prices are EXCEPTIONAL (especially when you see how great your puppy is)...no price gouging happening here. We live in Los Angeles and the shipping process was a breeze. The Puppy Shack took care of all of the arrangements. We just had to show up to meet our sweet boy. From start to finish we highly recommend The Puppy Shack! We've been spreading the word out here in Los Angeles, CA...The Puppy Shack is the BEST!

We purchased a miniature Aussiedoodle puppy from The Puppy Shack and we couldn't have been happier! From the first moment we contacted them, they were great! Always quick to respond to our questions and were very patient and accommodating while we coordinated the best time for her to fly to us.
Our puppy was flying to us in California, which made me a bit nervous. But knowing that The Puppy Shack took such great care of their puppies and knowing their knowledge and experience in this area, put my nerves at ease and Wrigley arrived safe and sound and happy.
She has been such a joy and has been the best addition to our family! From the moment she arrived, she has been so sweet and so trusting of all of us and I know that's due to the love and care she received at her first home with The Puppy Shack. She loves being around people and other dogs and she doesn't seem to be bothered by the cat that decides to visit our backyard every now and again. She was super easy to crate train and housebreaking went even better than I expected. She quickly learned to ring the bell to go outside. She is happy to run and play with our two boys or hang out and cuddle. We love her and can't imagine our family without her! We've had a very smooth transition bringing Wrigley into our family. The Puppy Shack ensured we knew that they are available if we ever had any questions or concerns. It has been a great experience!

The Puppy Shack pups are amazing. This is Jax born 8.10.19 He has the easiest going personality and is very friendly. He’s extremely smart, house trained months ago, doesn’t need to be in his crate when we leave. He is only 7 months old, 51 lbs. We love him so much. Thank you!!!

I am writing with an update on Toby who we adopted on December 20th.
He's doing great and he felt like part of the family since day one. He has learned to sit, lay, stay, get down, and to ring his bell when he needs to go outside.
He is a very loving dog. He loves to hug us and snuggle with us on the couch. His favorite things are currently: going on walks, greeting the neighborhood dogs, sleeping on our bed, his Kong, sitting in the yard watching wildlife, meeting new people, and ringing his bell to go outside (and ringing it again more loudly if we don't show up quickly enough the first time).
The neighbors on the street love him! The say he looks happy, looks like a teddy bear, and that he has a lot of energy. In fact, more of our neighbors know Toby's name than they know our names. Toby has not yet met a stranger.
We are surprised that the plush heart he was given on the day he was adopted has lasted. We put it in his crate every night and each morning when we open the crate door, Toby comes out, stretches, and then turns back and grabs his heart and takes it in to the living room. It's like he knows the value of it. Thank you for giving it to him.
Thanks for your support and all the help and information you have provided us.

Here are a few pictures of churros growing up until today!
My husband and I live in Miami, FL and we always discussed about having a pet. We had agreed in Goldendoodle, but my husband wanted a less curly dog. Scrolling online I found Puppy #4555 and felt in love. I contacted The Puppy Shack and from day 1 the experience was great. They were always very responsive and answered all questions I had, sent pictures of the litter which made me feel very comfortable.
By the way, the puppy would be a surprise birthday present to my husband, so I had to make the decision on my own and for that I thank The Puppy Shack as the made me comfortable enough to make the decision.
From the confirmation of payment, assistance with the shipment and follow ups, the experience was amazing.
Churros is now 1 year old and is 65% golden retriever according to the DNA test we took. He is a blessing in our lives and we love him so much.
We would never hesitate to recommend The Puppy Shack to anyone. They even mailed Churros’ first toy!!! Amazing!
Thaissa, Daniel and Churros
Dear The Puppy Shack,
April 2020 we celebrated Stanley’s 1st Birthday and wanted to let you know how amazing he is. Stanley is an F1 Mini Goldendoodle; rich red color and amazing waves. He is about 35lbs and is perfect in look and temperament, not to mention super healthy. He was housed trained within the first month and quickly became the center of my families love (3 kids 4,8,& 11).
I want to “Thank You” Puppy Shack for the support from answering all my questions and keeping me close to the process. Especially loved my care package, grooming and training tips. I will continue to recommend The Puppy Shack to anyone who is interest in having a well-loved and cared for puppy!
Stanley is definitely our hockey families “Stanley Cup!”
We have no never owned a dog before and were very hesitant to buy a puppy, especially during the cold season. After a lot of research, we settled on the Puppy Shack. By the first glimpse of their website to the first email and call, we knew that they were the breeder for us. After much debating, we finally settled on Emma and Duke's litter of mini Aussiedoodles. We could not be happier with the one we picked out! Thomas and Rustun answered all our questions, and were very patient with us while they found a nanny for Mozzie to fly him all the way to Durango, CO. He arrived safe and sound! He is so sweet and just wants to play and lay in our laps. Mozzie also loves to play with our neighbors dogs, his best buds, Pippa and Biscuit. He recently went to his first vet appointment and was a healthy happy pup! Not to mention, the countless number of people who have complimented us on Mozzie and asked who our breeder was! There are so many good things about the Puppy Shack, and we would recommend them to anyone who wants a trusting and respectable breeder, as well as a good doodle, that is sweet, caring and loving pooch!
