Happy Owners

We adopted Luka a little over a year ago. He’s very playful, smart and loyal. Loves to follow you everywhere.. He can do lots of tricks especially when given a treat! He can even understand grandma when she speaks to him in Chinese. Luka has been a blessing to all of us! He’s like the brother our son always wanted. We are very thankful to Taylor and Andru who have been great! We would definitely recommend Pups by Taylor.

We absolutely love our mini goldendoodle! Here’s a little praise for PupsbyTaylor: When we took Sadi into the vet with all her records provided us by Taylor the vet could not believe it… & I quote:”We never see this. You found a great breeder. I am going to give her name out to anyone looking for a puppy.” I already knew this of course but it was encouraging to hear the confirmation. So much more I could say but I’d just be echoing the other positive words already posted. Thanks Taylor for our sweet Sadi!

I truly believe that a lot can be said about those who are passionate about what they do. Taylor is not your ordinary run of the mill breeder. When you research into potential breeders you stumble upon a lot of them who are all claiming the same things and it’s hard to differentiate and know if they are really all the things they claim or if they are just good at letting you see the things they want you to see. My boyfriend and I decided to get our little guy, Kingston, who is a JLo/Koa pup from Taylor and we are so lucky and happy we did. From the very beginning, Taylor maintained open and honest communication and feedback with us. We didn’t know if we were ready to be dog owners and if our lifestyle could accommodate raising a dog and she talked us through and helped us think about all the factors involved and what raising a dog requires from financial responsibilities to schedules to time etc. Taylor is passionate not just about the breeding process but about each individual dog that leaves her home and rightly so. She invests so much of her time helping with early development and training from the moment the puppies are born to the very moment they leave and has remained a constant help and resource to us up until now (Kingston is already over 6 months now!) Taylor kept us updated on a daily basis through Snapchat posts, YouTube videos and a shared photo album. I don’t know many people who have ultrasound photos or videos of their dogs minutes after they were born but we do! She accommodated us visiting the puppies whenever we wanted even if it was a Friday night after the end of a long work day. In bringing Kingston home, Taylor set us up with everything that we needed to make the transition into our home an easy one. My friends and family with dogs have always commented that they have never had that kind of care or attention with the breeders they went with! I highly recommend Taylor and I do recommend her to everyone I encounter who comments on how adorable, loving and well-adjusted/behaved Kingston is. As much as I could write about how great Taylor and the whole experience was and is, Kingston is the true testament to what true passion and love can produce and that all started with Taylor. The time she spent with him in his early development has made him who he is. We love him so much and have Taylor to thank. We seriously can’t recommend her enough!

Opportunity For Guardian Families – Female Dogs

18 Oct

Beyonce, JLo and Fergie all live in my house full time and that means that they spend a lot of time with me and even sleep in our bed. In addition to everything else I have going on, I spend time working on training each of them to sit, stay, down, leave it, walk off leash, etc. There are only so many hours in the day and when I want to spend time working with each girl individually and take her out to the Mill Creek Town Center to be around other people, it can end up taking me several hours for just my 3 girls here full time and if you did not know I also have a full time job (working from home but it is FT). Also, it is really too emotionally difficult to have that 24/7 connection and then rehome a dog after she is done having puppies for us. It feels like she isn’t being appreciated and that isn’t how I feel at all. But I also can’t have more than 3 dogs here full time AND have my Mommies come back here to have puppies, it just gets to be too crazy and that isn’t good for anyone. The way to work around this issue is a guardian program.

Want To See Doodles? Our Visitation Policy

22 Jul

Our first litter will be 4 years old next month. Time has flown by and I have gone from advertising on Craigslist to a waitlist of over 20. I am so grateful for the love that we have received. THANK YOU.

With this new attention, I have seen an increase in the amount of messages that I receive asking to come over and meet our dogs or play with puppies. I have also been surprised by a few random people that never even called me, they just showed up at my front door. Just to be clear, that is scary and I would never invite you in my house if you do that. The only downside to this home based business is that I don’t have an office or kennel outside our home for people to visit.

Guardian Families

07 Jul

We found a home for Childish Gambino! He was placed last week and doing so well!There is a chance that we will have guardian opportunities for females in the future but I don’t plan on adding additional males for awhile.

I have been considering keeping a female from Adele or Gaga as a future Mommy for us but that would be in 2019. I will post again when we are looking for a future guardian family! Thank you so much for the interest! If you are considering a pup give me a call so we can get you on the waitlist!

Easter 2018

01 Apr

I know I am so overdue for a blog post and I have wanted to update about day to day life, our awesome reunion we had in February at House of Ruff in Seattle, recent breeding/date nights with Jay Z and hoping Fergie and JLo are both currently pregnant, etc but for now how about some cute Easter pics? I spend so much time staring at dog pics on Instagram (way too much time honestly!) and I am so impressed with all of the creativity, obvious dog training and great photography skills! I look back at some of our old pics and I’ve got to say that wow, we’ve come a long way. It doesn’t hurt that I’ve changed groomers, I do a better job of combing the girls out daily and they get a regular “tune up” (my term) every month that includes a nail trim and also a mini haircut and comb out (in case I missed anything). I remember when someone told me JLo ‘looks cuter in person’ and I thought what the heck she is gorgeous but when I look back at that pic I think why the heck wasn’t she groomed?!! Just for giggles here’s the comparison:

Haha! I hope you got a laugh. She needs a good cut but I can still see how cute she is. Anyway, I think this year’s pics are adorable and way better than last year!

Don’t Let The Waitlist Fool You

17 Nov

Lesson learned – don’t let the waitlist fool you! I cannot believe that I had a list of 26 families with deposits paid and 20 of those families said the Christmas timing was not right for them. I try to prepare my families for the worst, telling people it could be a year out so if I get to their name early it is a nice surprise instead of setting people up to be disappointed. I just can’t control how many puppies are in a litter or if my girls will even get pregnant but I also don’t know what might be going on with my families. For this litter I made my way through the list and even had a day where I updated my site to say 1 available puppy. There were lots of vacations planned, a remodel, a new baby, a recent pregnancy announced, I have a few families with a senior dog that aren’t ready to add a puppy to their home, etc. Here’s a visual of how far I went down the list:
