You matched us perfect with our pup Redd. He has enough energy for Mary who was just diagnosed with autism. But he also knows when to just chill out with her and relax. He is such a sweet dog. You opened your house to us which a lot of people wouldn't do. We enjoyed getting to see how big the puppies were every week. I also love that you are so close and offered to puppy sit if we ever went anywhere! You should be so proud of Siofra and Sinead. They are wonderful caregivers to these puppies! They love and remember each and every pup that goes to forever homes. Redd is such a happy, healthy loved pup we will forever be grateful to have him in our family! We also look forward to a puppy reunion!
We are honored! And would be happy to be a reference and talk to anyone about our FInn. Feel free to share our email or phone. We are happy to represent ssgoldendoodles!

We are so grateful for our experience with SS Goldendoodles. This journey began when we decided it was time to bring a new puppy into our family after losing our two beloved basset hounds this past fall. After much thought and research, we decided we wanted our new pup to be a goldendoodle. By some streak of luck, or maybe fate, we happened upon the SS Goldendoodle website. From the first email response encouraging us to visit and explaining the process of matching personalities with owners, we knew that you were the breeder for us. Our first visit was when the puppies were only a week and a half old and it was amazing to meet them along with their parents (and aunt!). We were graciously welcomed into your home that day and several more times over the next seven weeks until we brought Finn home last Friday. During that time our schedule revolved around when we could get back to see the puppies! We were able to watch them grow, change and fell in love with all of them. Although we tried to take your advice not to favor any one puppy, pretty sure Mike picked Blue from the first day they met! In between visits we looked forward to all the videos and email updates you sent to keep us connected. It was such a pleasure getting to know all of you, all the puppies and of course Skylar, Charli and Penny. You chose the perfect match for us in Finn. He has been home less then a week and has settled in like he has lived here forever! Thank you so much for everything.

I can’t say enough great things about SS Goldendoodles! We’ve had many dogs in our lives, but working with SSGoldendoodles was by far the best and most enjoyable. We love how she encouraged that we visit the puppies from the previous litter, so we could learn about her breeding philosophy, and meet the parents of our litter. She takes breeding very seriously, raising the pups in the confines of her own house, not in a kennel, with attention to every detail. She provides comprehensive DNA testing of her sire/bitch and takes pride in delivering healthy and happy puppies. Once our litter was born, visiting every few weeks as they grew was such an added perk, especially for our kids who learned about the stages of development of these little puppies. They got to know our family well, and picked a PERFECT puppy for us! Molly has fit into our family from day one. She has an amazing temperament, is smart, loving yet playful. We can’t say enough great things about SS Goldendoodles!

We have nothing but good things to say about you ladies! So kind and helpful in this process. Purple - Maddie is doing great, we LOVE her so much. She's feisty and loveable. She needs a little training to get her wild out but she's just the best little pup, it has been a great experience for all of us!

It has been 5 months since we took our little Chelsea home and she is now 7 months old! She is such a lovely puppy - so kind and playful. This was our first experience buying a dog and it was all around wonderful. You opened your home to us on almost a weekly basis to visit with the new litter. It was great to see all the puppies interact with each other and their parents, Skylar and Charlie and the dog’s aunt Penny. We really got a sense of their personalities and knew right away that they were gentle and great with our kids! You were always available for all our silly questions and gave us some great tips on what to do when bringing our new puppy home. It was nice to know that we had you to fall back on when we had questions. Even the other day, when I emailed you to ask when we should get Chelsea spayed, you were right there helping me figure it out! I also love that Siofra and Sinead set up the Facebook page just for the litter dog owners. It is so fun to see Chelsea’s siblings and hear about how they are doing from the families that took them home. It really gives you a sense of connection to the other owners and it has been a great resource for us! Getting a new puppy can be somewhat overwhelming, but you made the process so easy. I can’t tell you how many people comment about how great Chelsea is when they meet her and I am always happy to talk to them and let them know where we got our wonderful dog! Thank you so much - we can’t wait for the family reunion!!
Feel free to let us know when you need a reference!
All the best,

Boo (full name:Abu Dhoggie, named by our geography-loving 10 year old boy) has brought such joy to our household. She is sweet, smart, fun, adventurous. Unfortunately, our family lived 5 hours from Hanover, but when we met, we knew we needed to adopt from her. And we were right 100%. Even as far as we were, she always responded to our questions, provided pictures and video. She even somehow knew which puppy we were eyeing on the video, though we kept mum until the match was made. And that's the puppy we were given, thanks to her instincts! We have been so so happy to have her. She's intuitive, very friendly to people and dogs, has been steadily learning potty training and what to train her puppy teeth on/not on. We are in love. And we keep being told we should put her in commercials!
SSGoldendoodles brought our best friend into our lives. Brady is the most loyal, caring, and protective dog we could've asked for. We are always complimented how beautiful he is wherever we bring him. You will not find another breeder that keeps you as involved as they will in the process of the puppies growing. We loved seeing Brady grow and getting updates on how all the puppies were in their first 2 months of life. He was so easy to train and was giving "paw" and "sit" within the first 24 hours of being home. We couldn't love him more if we tried. We would be happy to introduce Brady to any prospective families thinking of getting a puppy.

We've been in love since we met the puppies and even more in love since we brought Zappaa home💜
You have brought us so much joy while we watched the pups grow and what an amazing job you've done raising them!!💞💞
Zappaa is perfect💜💜 Affectionate, calm and a joyful, snuggly & playful pup👍 He’s got all the attributes lined up to be a great therapy do – I can’t wait until he’s old enough to join me and Zippaa!
When we embarked on getting a second Goldendoodle, I must say it was on a bit of a whim – but the journey and the final decision were very calculated.
When we found out our original breeder was no longer breeding, I began searching throughout New England because we weren’t going in sight unseen – many knocked themselves off the list before we even met them. Others didn’t give me the right ‘vibe’ or wouldn’t let us meet the parents when we visited them. One other breeder was in the running but then we met you and your three dogs and we were instantly in love – decision made! And we’ve never doubted it since!!
Just waiting the seven weeks seemed endless but you kept us updated on their progress and allowed us the opportunity to visit and watch them grow and learn – what fun! You did such a great job keeping them clean, content and occupied. The early socialization they got being directly with your family, the transition of their living arrangement including acclimating them to the crate and then the toys and playtime in the kitchen. Oh, and the live-cams – I’m not a Facebook person but I was hooked😊 That brought us such joy along the way!!
Then it was finally time to bring Zappaa home😊 and it’s been exceptional since day one!!
That first day was a bigger day for him than anticipated and he hung like a champ! I wouldn’t recommend it but he came in for a trip to PetSmart for some last minute supplies, enjoyed an outing with our older dog, Zippaa, at the park and then we headed home – but wait there’s more… I had to run to the office and he wowed them all in there, too, as well as at Argos Dog Training – we just had to stop by there since we were out anyway😉
That night the four of us went to sleep happy & exhausted – and he slept through the night!! And (knock on wood) has every night since!!
We’ve been crate training him and he’s doing fabulous with that and the house training. Today was his first day to join me at work and he was putting up such a racket about being in the crate which shocked me and I was scared I’d have to leave for the day and wouldn’t be able to bring him in to the office as planned – but guess what – he was just off schedule and it turned out he was just announcing (loudly & emphatically) that he needed a ‘business trip’ of his own outside. That was a quick and productive trip and when we went back in, he tucked in to his crate just as calm and content as can be😊
He’s doing stairs – both up & down, inside & out, been on long car rides, is great with all kinds of people and dogs of all sizes and ages. He fits right in to our lifestyle and is a joy to be around!
Needless to say, he’s got those sharp puppy teeth but we’re working diligently with him and he’s quickly learning that he’s not to put them on us humans. The other thing that was important to us was that he learn to sit for his food, toys and attention. It’s too early to name the command but we’re coaxing the behavior from him and he’s doing great! Everyone’s very impressed!!
The vet appointment went very smoothly and they said all was good on the health front, too!
He’s been to his first Puppy Kindergarten class and was a model participant, hanging out quietly during the topic talk, did well being handled by multiple people and was a champ with the object socialization – this week was a radio-controlled car and nail clippers. During the play session he was the youngest one in the class. Oftentimes the very young puppies and the first timers hang on the perimeter and look for their humans but he was right in there running around and enjoying the other pups. Then, when it was time to go, he came right to us and happily headed out for a visit to Revere beach where he got to meet more people and experience sand and seagulls.
Zappaa’s the best <well, next to Zippaa😉> and you guys are, too!!
We're so grateful to have met you and have the privilege of getting one of your pups 🐾🐾💜

Mookie is adjusting great! The kids love him and he loves them ❤️ The car ride wasn't too bad- we snuggled the whole way. He already napped earlier in his cage- he's such a sweetheart. You did a great match!
We don't even know where to begin. SS Goldendoodles changed our lives. We got Finley from their first litter and it was the most seamless process. We were so involved and were constantly updated with pictures and videos. We also got to visit and see Finley a few times before we brought her home. The puppies were raised in a home with a family - which is not the case with all breeders. The family at SS Goldendoodles made us feel so comfortable. Our doodle is more than a pet - she is the most loving and loyal puppy, and she is BEAUTIFUL! We would be ecstatic to introduce her to anyone thinking of getting a doodle - and if you want to see how your doodle may turn out, check out her Instagram @finleysrufflife. This doodle truly made us a family and we love her more than we ever thought imaginable. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have further questions or would like to meet Finley and see for yourself :)
