Crockett Doodles History

Dr. Nathan Crockett grew up in a home that always had a dog (lhasa apso; mixed breed; toy sheltie). His wife Abigail grew up always having a yellow Labrador Retriever. After marriage, the Crocketts had a purebred with health issues (and major shedding) and a friend told them about Goldendoodles. The Goldendoodle's non-shedding coat, friendly personality and hybrid vigor were huge draws.

After a long search to get a Goldendoodle from a reputable breeder, they welcomed a champion bloodline beautiful Goldendoodle into their family. The Crocketts decided to become the kind of breeder they had such a hard time finding (family raised pups from a responsible breeder).

They bought a gorgeous apricot poodle and planned to do one litter a year of home-raised pups. After creating the bestGoldendoodles.com website, the Crocketts had numerous emails of people wanting one of the f1b Goldendoodle puppies from their first litter.

When their pet Goldendoodle had her first litter of pups, it took a long time just to type in around 400 names/emails of those who'd asked to be on a waiting list. Within a couple minutes, the Crocketts had deposits on all 12 Goldendoodle pups, and had to send an email saying the deposits were now closed. They realized they could never keep up with the demand for quality home-raised pups from a quality breeder.

Not wanting to start a kennel, they worked with close friends of theirs to become partner homes. The Crocketts bought outstanding Goldendoodles for several of their friends, provided the poodle stud, and connected the puppies to wonderful forever homes.

These partner homes became an ideal way to have truly family raised pups, yet provide more than one litter a year. They added Labradoodles the second year (specializing in chocolate). For many years now, Crockett Doodles has become known as a premier breeder of Goldendoodles and Labradoodles.

Over the past few years, they've had requests from numerous other families who believe in home-raised pups. Several of these family friends had a desire to do a doodle breed other than Labradoodles or Goldendoodles. Crockett Doodles strategically partnered with the Dion family to do family-raised Aussiedoodles, the Arnolds to raise Springerdoodles, the Hamblens with Sheepadoodles, the Weiers with Bernedoodles, the Houtzs with Newfiedoodles, the Taylors with Saint Berdoodles, and Nathan's brother Isaac Crockett with Irishdoodles.

Because each family has one or two dogs, it allows them to be true family pets. Crockett Doodles is able to devote resources to fully vetting all puppy applicants, marketing each new doodle breed, working through health tests, etc. with the partner families.

We have found it to be a wonderful arrangement to provide outstanding family-raised doodle puppies to great families. One huge advantage to the Crockett Doodles program is that a deposit for one kind of doodle can be transferred to any other doodle in our network.

Goldendoodle-puppy-with-cute-boy.jpg

We have such high demand (and can accept only a fraction of deposits), that we are thrilled for a mini Goldendoodle deposit to be transferred to a mini Sheepadoodle or mini Bernedoodle or mini Labradoodle. Our program allows a great amount of flexibility to those who have placed a deposit with Crockett Doodles. We also are one of the only breeders to offer a fully REFUNDABLE deposit. Your deposit can be refunded at any time, for any reason.

Crockett Doodles Application

Years ago, we announced doodle litters to hundreds of people who had placed their name on a list. Within the first minute or two, the entire Goldendoodle (or Labradoodle) litter would be spoken for, and those who got a pup felt like they had won the lottery. If a family checked their email more than 4 or 5 minutes after we sent it, the pups would already be spoken through.

For the past several years, here at Crockett Doodles we've learned to use a thorough application process to take deposits ahead of time, accepting only the best qualified forever homes. 

Newfiedoodle.jpg

Please do not place a PayPal deposit unless your doodle puppy application is accepted. We will try to thoroughly and fairly evaluate your doodle application within four to five days. We will respond with a detailed answer that will essentially be "yes," "no," or "wait." We're presently able to accept deposits from almost 30% of those who want a doodle puppy from us. Each year it seems like we have to be more picky in which applications we can accept as we are continually bombarded with doodle puppy applications.

toy-Goldendoodle.jpg

Completing the application below in NO WAY obligates you to place a deposit or to get a doodle puppy from Crockett Doodles, it's merely the initial step to show interest and explore if your family would be a good fit.

landseer-newfypoo.jpg

If we accept your doodle application, you would have the option of placing a fully refundable $300 deposit, which would apply to the final price of your doodle puppy. Once you place the deposit, you will receive litter announcements to choose which doodle pup you want from a given litter as they're available. You also have the option to pass on as many litters as you want.

phantom-bernedoodle.jpg

Your doodle deposit can be refunded at any time for any reason. We don't understand why almost every other breeder requires non-refundable deposits. To us, the application helps us evaluate if you would be a great forever home. The deposit shows us that you're serious, but we have no desire to keep your deposit if you find a dog somewhere else or for some other reason decide not to get a puppy from Crockett Doodles.

(You can select more than one) Greenville, SC is our headquarters. Occasionally we have puppies available in Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA. Our partner families in Detroit, MI, and Pennsylvania (Allentown and State College) have occasional litters available, and California should be up and going in 2018.
If your favorite spot does not work out for a pickup, what would your second choice be.
If you have any additional comments, please add them here. For example some families in Baltimore, are closest to State Line, PA, but they want us to know if we have a litter ready sooner in Greenville, SC (where we have more guardian homes), they still want to know about the announcement, because they'd rather get a pup a month earlier, even if it means driving further. Others prefer to wait until a pup is available at the closest pickup location.
