Beautiful Goldendoodle and Golden Retriever Puppies Raised In Our Home!

About Us

We are a Goldendoodle and Golden Retriever Breeder in Lakeland, Florida

I was raised in Brooklyn, New York and even in that big bustling city, my parents raised me to have love and respect for all animals and creatures. That love continued to grow and dogs became my favorite of all. I cannot remember a time in my life when I didn’t have a dog in my home. That led me to become a dog groomer. It warmed my heart to know that I would be able to help dogs look and feel their best. Then a few years down the road we brought Arwynn into our lives. A beautiful, sweet, smart, playful and loyal F1 Goldendoodle and The Puppy Brigade was born. 

My husband and I cherish and love all these adorable puppies as if they were our own. Our goal is to raise sweet, healthy, happy and well socialized puppies in the heart of our home. We ensure that they are properly socialized with people as well as other pets. All of our pup parents are health tested to ensure that you receive the healthiest and happiest puppy. We want to make sure that you are bringing home the best puppy possible.

Picking the right breeder is important. You want to make sure the breeder is responsible, cares for their dogs, and will be a valued resource for you throughout your dog’s life. We are all of these, plus more! And we would love to be part of your puppy journey!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I meet mom?
    Definitely! The Mammas are our girls and live in our home with us.
  • Are the puppies raised in your home from birth?
    Yes! The puppies are born and raised in our home with us. We ensure that they are kept clean, warm, well fed, and with their mother until they are weaned.
  • Do I get to pick whichever puppy I want from the litter?
    Your deposit secures your place in line for puppy picks. You will be informed of your place before processing your deposit. For example, if you make the $500 non-refundable deposit but there were 2 other families who gave their deposit first, then your place in line would be 3rd for puppy picks.
  • Does my deposit secure my place in line for multiple puppies if I decide I want more than one?
    If you are considering more than 1 puppy then you would need to make a $500 non-refundable deposit for every puppy you wish to secure. These deposits would secure your place(s) in line for puppy picks.
  • When can I choose my puppy?
    We will be posting pictures on our website from day 1 so you can see those adorable little faces and see their color and coat type. Families that have put down a deposit, can come for a “Meet and Greet” to select their puppy when they are 6 weeks old.
  • Have health tests been performed on the parents?
    Yes! All pup parents are health tested before breeding to ensure you receive the healthiest and happiest puppy possible.
  • Do you provide a health guarantee and a contract?
    Yes! We provide a 1 year health guarantee that ensures your puppy is healthy and free of serious infectious disease. Part of the contract also requires that you take your puppy to your own veterinarian to be examined within 3 business days of purchase.
  • When can I take my puppy home?
    All puppies are available to go home once they are 8 weeks of age. At 8 weeks, puppies are eating solid food on their own, they have benefited from socializing with litter mates and observing mom, and they are well within the ideal timeframe to bond with new owners.
  • How can we contact you after picking up the puppy?
    I will provide you with my contact information. Feel free to contact me at anytime with any questions or concerns.
  • How do you socialize your puppies?
    We believe that it is very important that puppies are properly socialized so they become well-adjusted dogs. We expose the puppies to proper human interaction, socialization with other dogs as well as cats. We also include Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) exercises. These are a series of exercises used to introduce mild stressors to very young puppies in a controlled way. The benefits of ENS include but are not limited to; improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate), stronger heart beats, stronger adrenal glands, more tolerance to stress, and greater resistance to disease. ENS stimulated pups are more active and exploratory. We strongly believe that early socialization will help your puppy better adjust to new surroundings and life with you after you bring them home.
  • What forms of payment do you take?
    We accept Cash, Credit/Debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, JCB), Zelle,  Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay. Please note that any type of Credit/Debit payment is subject to a 3.5% transaction fee.
  • ***Please Note: As a breeder, The Puppy Brigade reserves the right to any first pick from any litter and first pick puppies always start after our right to pick. We do not keep a puppy from every litter but always reserve the right to do so. Also, The Puppy Brigade has the right to, at any time; decide to stop breeding. In this case, no puppies shall be given, instead a full refund will be issued.***
