Our History

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 mini Goldendoodles. The Goldendoodle's non-shedding coat, friendly personality and hybrid vigor were huge draws. 

Baby mini golden doodle puppies

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 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 home 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 many years now, Crockett Doodles has become known as a premier breeder of f1b standard and mini Goldendoodles as well as f1b standard and mini Labradoodles.

Over the past several years, Crockett Doodles has received requests from numerous other families who believe in home-raised doodle pups. Several 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 mini Aussiedoodles, the Arnolds to raise Springerdoodles, the Weiers with Bernedoodles, the Houtzs with Newfiedoodles, the Taylors with Saint Berdoodles, the Crouchs with Swissdoodles, the Andersons with Cockapoos, Nathan's brother Isaac Crockett with Irishdoodles, Josh Crockett with Cavapoos, and several friends with mini Sheepadoodles and standard Sheepadoodles.

Because each family has a couple doodles, it allows these guardian home doodles 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.

Our doodle guardian homes and partner homes have been a wonderful way 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.

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 doodle breeders to offer a REFUNDABLE deposit minus a 5% processing fee. Your doodle puppy deposit can be refunded at any time, for any reason.
