Crockett Doodles has spent the past seven years developing a stellar reputation as a network of family-raised Doodle puppies. We leave comments and guest posts completely open on our Facebook page, and 99% of the comments are positive. Scroll through our Facebook page to read hundreds (literally) of glowing testimonies from real families who adopted from us—click here for a sampling of a few dozen testimonials. If you scour the internet looking for anyone with something negative to say about us, the strong chance is that they’re someone who never adopted a pup from us. We have a very loyal following from those who’ve had the privilege of adopting a puppy from Crockett Doodles.
We’re one of the only breeders (of any dog breed) who offers a refundable deposit (minus a 9% processing fee). We want you to get a dog that is the best fit for your family, and we recognize that may well be through a Humane Society or another breeder. We understand that your plans may change after you’ve placed a deposit. So we’re happy to refund a deposit at any time for any reason.
Our Adoption Pricing is usually significantly less than that of our Doodle competitors who offer a similar quality family-raised puppy. Many hands make light work; because we harness the power of a network of dozens of families, we are able to cut costs significantly and pass the savings to you.
All of our Crockett Doodles pups come with an outstanding one year health warranty. If you feed TLC dog food which we recommend, it extends to three years. Read our full Health Guarantee.
We believe that puppies are healthier and better socialized when raised by a family, rather than a “professional” kennel.
If your application is accepted, and your deposit is placed, you’re not locked into a particular litter. You have the option to pass on litters as they become available. Our flexibility allows you to get the exact Doodle puppy that you want in the timing that works best for you.
Most families prefer to pick their puppy up at one of our partner homes. We have partner homes at various locations throughout the U.S. which helps shorten your trip. If you are unable to make the trip, we offer three Delivery Services to transport your puppy to your home depending on the size and location of your puppy. Families love the convenience our network offers them to get a puppy without making the trip themselves.
As recognized leaders in the Doodle community, we desire to give back. We seek to use a substantial amount of any profit to give back to our community in tangible ways. Click here to read about the many ways we give back.
Crockett Doodles started as an idea. Dr. Nathan Crockett grew up in a home that always had a dog. 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 find 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).
The Crocketts bought a gorgeous apricot poodle and planned to do one litter a year of home-raised doodle pups. After creating the bestGoldendoodles.com website, the Crocketts had hundreds of emails from people wanting one of the f1b Goldendoodle puppies from their first litter.
When their pet Goldendoodle had her first litter of pups, the Crocketts had deposits on all 12 Goldendoodle puppies in a matter of minutes 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 Goldendoodle puppies for sale from a quality Doodle 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 Goldendoodle (and mini Goldendoodle) puppies to wonderful forever homes.
These Partner Homes became an ideal way to have truly family raised Doodle puppies, yet provide more than one litter for sale a year. The Crocketts added Labradoodles the second year (specializing in chocolate Labradoodles and mini Labradoodles). For the past decade, Crockett Doodles has become known as a premier breeder of f1b standard and mini Goldendoodles as well as f1b standard and mini Labradoodles.
Crockett Doodles has received requests from numerous other families who believe in family-raised Doodle pups. Many of these family friends had a desire to do a Doodle breed other than mini Labradoodles or mini Goldendoodles. Crockett Doodles strategically partnered with the Dion family to do family-raised Aussiedoodles, the Arnolds to raise Springerdoodles, the Weiers with Bernedoodles, the Houtzs with Newfiedoodles, the Taylors with Saint Berdoodles, the Crouchs with Swissdoodles, the Burtners with Cockapoos, Nathan’s brother Isaac Crockett with Irishdoodles, Josh Crockett with Cavapoos, and several friends with mini Sheepadoodles and standard Sheepadoodles.
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. Each year our Partner Home network grows. What started ten years as ago as our closest friends and family, has expanded into several dozen partner homes in many states. Because of our excellent reputation and generous arrangement with Partner Homes, nearly every week Crockett Doodles receives requests from families wanting to be a Partner Home in our family network. We’re able to accept only about 5% of these requests as we always desire quality above quantity in seeking to deliver the best family-raised Doodle puppies.
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. 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 (or any other Doodle in our network).
The Crockett Doodles program allows a great amount of flexibility to those who have placed a deposit for a family raised Doodle puppy. We also are one of the only Doodle breeders to offer a REFUNDABLE deposit (minus a 9% processing fee). Your Doodle puppy deposit can be refunded at any time, for any reason.
Crockett Doodles is a partnership of several families in an effort to provide your family with healthy, happy family-raised Doodles. If your application is accepted and you place a deposit, your deposit can be used for any family Doodle breeder within the Crockett Doodles network (Goldendoodle, Labradoodle, Aussiedoodle, Bernedoodle, Sheepadoodle, etc.). You’re never locked into a particular Doodle breed or a particular Doodle litter, and your deposit is refundable at any time for any reason (minus a 9% processing fee).

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 for.
At Crockett Doodles we use a thorough application process to take deposits ahead of time, accepting only the best qualified forever homes.
