Why a Puppy from Springview

Here at Springview Mini Goldendoodles, we are committed to giving our families the best service we can even before the puppies are born. We know how hard it can be to wait for just the perfect puppy.  It is common for our litters to be reserved well before they are born and in some cases we have families on our waiting lists months before our litters are even bred.

We want you to have the best start possible with your new Petite or Mini Goldendoodle, therefore we work with you and your puppy BEFORE he or she even comes home.  We want to do all that we can to help you get to know your puppy even while she is with us, so we take extra time to take lots of pictures so that you can watch your puppies grow.

Health Testing:   Getting a Goldendoodle that has passed rigorous health testing is extremely important as there are many diseases that can be passed down from parents to puppies that can seriously affect the health and quality of life of your puppy.    All of our parents have had extensive health testing done so you can be assured you are getting a puppy with the best shot at a long healthy life.    These tests are expensive but necessary to ensure that we are breeding the healthiest puppies we can for our families.

Mom and Puppy Care:     All of our dogs live in the home with either us or with our wonderful Guardian Families as a member of the family.  I am lucky enough to be able to stay home where I have the time to make sure our puppies get special TLC from the minute they are born.  They are born in a beautiful whelping pen that was built with the comfort of the mom and pups in mind.  There is a lower panel where the Moms can come and go as they need, for food, water or to go potty.  Their special bedding is changed at least twice daily to make sure that Mom and pups are dry and comfortable.  I sleep in the room with them for the first two weeks making sure that the pups are always warm, not being smothered by Mom, (a sad but not uncommon occurrence if left unsupervised) and are nursing well.  They are watched over constantly and held often even from birth.  Our Moms are fed a special diet including an elaborate Goat’s milk milkshake in the morning to give her energy and help re-hydrate her from a long night of nursing.  Our moms also  get treats like special frozen Goat’s milk pudding cups to keep up their strength and to ensure her pups get a good supply of nice rich milk while nursing.  Our Moms are treated like queens and always allowed full access to the puppies at all times of the day and night.  A puppy’s access to its Mom is crucial and one of the most important things needed to ensure a healthy, happy, well adjusted pup.

As our puppies grow, they are started on their indoor potty training and usually catch on in just days.  Once they start to get up and around, (usually about 4 weeks or so), they are moved out into the main part of our for more stimulation and to get used to normal life in a busy household.   Having a large play area in the hub of our home  is a great way for the puppies to get acclimated to life in YOUR home.   They quickly learn that the normal noises of an active family, from piano lessons and vacuuming, to an occasional crash in the kitchen are nothing to be afraid of.  You can’t teach them that if they are raised in a kennel, basement, or kept in a separate room in the house or garage.  Our home is probably much like your home and we want them to have as easy an adjustment as possible.

Please visit our  Facebook Page   “Springview Mini Goldendoodles”     where you can read some wonderful notes from our families telling how happy they are with their Springview Mini Goldendoodle and see lots and lots of pictures in the photo albums there!

Getting a great head-start:  In addition to Early Neural Stimulation that helps your new puppy with socialization, your puppy will be introduced to a crate.  We put an open crate in with the puppies at a young age and they quickly learn that this is a great place to play and rest.         This is so important whether you are picking up your puppy or she will be shipped to your home.  Crate training is an important part of training a puppy and we do what we can to make this part of your life as easy as we can.

One very important behavior we work on while your puppy is here is Bite Inhibition.     This is such a common problem that new families have when they bring home a new pup.   We work long and hard on teaching NO BITE, and they do very well by the time they go home.

Many breeders are trying to save money by doing the microchipping, deworming and vaccinations themselves.  We do not believe this practice is the best for the puppies, therefore we let our experienced vet administer the microchips, final deworming medications and vaccinations when they see him for their examination and health certificate  at 7.5 weeks of age.


With your puppy you will receive:

  • Two wonderful training books to help you learn how to train and raise your puppy.

We believe in helping you with as much useful information as we possibly can.

  •  A nice vaccination record we have created for you to keep track of all your puppy’s vaccinations for his/her lifetime.
  • Microchip enrollment form for registration of your puppy’s microchip.
  • Collar with matching leash.
  • Special blanket that has been rubbed on all of the litter so your pup has the scents of his brothers and sisters to help him sleep at night.
  •  A new toy to bring home.

 Shipping:

Many of our clients live out of state and we no longer will ship our puppies.     We ask that all families travel here to our home just outside Orlando to pick up your puppy.  It is very important that you know exactly where and how your puppy was raised and meet the breeder in person.    There have been numerous mishaps with the airlines and shipping puppies that have to go in cargo if not accompanied by their family, we no long will subject our babies to this risk.    Our puppies will easily fit under the seat as your carry on and travel nicely.
