Welcome to another week at Lamgo Farms!!! We are so thankful you have stopped by to see just what is going on in all of our litters.
As you may have noticed- I’ve changed things up a bit with the blog. Instead of updating the page each week, I’ve started using blog posts that will remain week after week along with a newly published post each week. Hopefully this will help me update with a little more ease as well as allow you to subscribe and follow to keep up to date with all of our weekly changes.
I’ll still keep our FAQ attached to this blog to make sure all of your questions and answers are close by. At this time we have the final picking spot available in our Maybelline/Paddington mini Double Doodle litter. This will most likely be a black male, therefore we are only accepting deposits from owners wanting a black male. Brie will be going in for a prenatal X-ray at the end of next week to count puppies. At that time, we will know if we have any Christmas picking spots available. Please scroll down to see our summer litters for available picking spots.
We are already getting inquiries for our 2018-19 season. Since I need to concentrate on our current owners, puppies, and paperwork for all of them- I will not be accepting deposits for the 2018-19 season until January 1st. At that time, it’s open season on picking lists. In December- I will list all of our next year litters and picking spots- just follow the directions for how to reserve a picking spot (below in the FAQ area) after January 1st.
A little announcement. . .we have a new addition to Lamgo Farms. Meet our newest little girl that will allow us to add to our red mini line in the future. This is Boston! She will also be introducing new products to our custom pet supplies (coming in the summer). We have placed the store on hold during our adoption process and are ready to bring back all of your favorites including our ChowChair line! Yay! Boston is an awesome little girl that looks just like our Mrs. Beasley when she was little. Jessica is currently working very hard training this little girl and having some great success! Yay for doodles!
Right now we are enjoying our new Maybelline puppies and we are thrilled to have been having cooler weather! We still hop up into the 80’s but we are cooling off at night and enjoying these brisk mornings! Doodles love cooler weather and so do I!!!
I can’t wait for puppy romping time! Now, let’s not wait until they grow up before we check out what is happening in each of your litters. Scroll on down to see just what is happening on the farm this week. . .
CURRENT and Next Season’s Breeding Schedule: (this is our Fall/Winter 2017 and Spring/Summer 2018 schedule)
Here is what we have planned:
Maybelline/Paddington Mini Double Doodles (black, red, apricot- 25-30 lbs) – Maybelline gave birth to 5 boys and 3 girls October 3. Girls are purple, pink and light green collars. The rest are boys. We have the final 2 picking spots available. Most likely males and at least one black. Puppies going home November 25.
What’s Happening Now:
The babies are doing excellent and growing! The little light green collar girl is the largest and the 2 smallest are the yellow boy and red boy. I have to admit- the light green girl has wonderful markings! So whoever chooses her. . .you’ll have an Instagram sensation on your hands. Right now the eyes are starting to open but it will take a few more days for everyone to be wide eyed and looking at us. I’ll update pictures on Facebook once all eyes are open. The puppies are already potty training! Yes, we place potty pads next to their bedding and they crawl to the pad to potty. They still spend a lot of time sleeping and nursing.
What Happens Next:
The puppies will have had their first deworming and socializing with the kiddos will begin. Next week we’ll have our first video!
- open (must be open to a black male)
The Double Doodle: F1 Mini Chocolate Labradoodle mixed with an F1b Mini Red Goldendoodle. Puppies will be a chocolate/red color with a wavy coat that matures between 25-35 lbs.
Brie/Duke F1bb Medium
(cream, peanut butter – 35-45 lbs)- (Brie had 11 puppies with her last Duke breeding)
ANNOUNCEMENT: Brie is expecting puppies due October 30. Puppies would be estimated to go home at Christmas. Brie is doing great and still quite active even with a big growing belly. We’re praying for lots and lots of wonderful healthy puppies for our Christmas owners. I am planning a prenatal X-ray to help us determine litter size around the 25th. The actual day will depend on the Vet’s schedule.
Brie is now in the nursery and relaxing in her whelping box. She’s still enjoying playing outside in this nice cooler weather! As labor approaches, we will notice panting and once active labor sets in, she will begin shivering. The next stage of labor is pushing. She will have visible contractions and one by one the puppies will begin to appear. I estimate one hour per puppy with delivery time. Once Brie is in labor, I’ll email everyone on the list and send email updates. Pictures will be posted to our Facebook page.

What breedings to you have coming up? Please scroll down to the “Next Season’s Breeding Schedule” to see what will be bred and what picking spots are open.
How do I know if you have any open picking spots in a particular litter? Scroll down until you see your desired litter. Any available picking spots will be listed as “open.”
How do I reserve a picking spot? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “deposit” in the subject line. Note which litter and number on the picking spot you prefer. Include your name, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have for your puppy. Then go to our pricing/payment page at LamgoFarms.com to place your deposit of $250.
Are Deposits refundable? Unfortunately, due to the high demand of our puppies, we no longer refund deposits. If for some reason we do not have enough puppies born to provide for every owner- your deposit can be transferred to your next desired litter. The $250 is a picking spot reservation. This also helps us weed out those who are not serious about taking home one of our puppies.
Do you have any paperwork we need to complete? Since our puppies are Reserved almost a year in advance- we will spend that time getting to know each of you and will be offering the proper education to make sure you are fully prepared to bring home your puppy. When placing a deposit, please include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have. Once you place your deposit, I will email you your purchase contract which also serves as your receipt. You will need to sign and email this back to me. You will also receive a suggested supply list as well as our Health Warranty. The Health Warranty is not due back until 30 days after you take your puppy home.
Do you choose the puppy for us or can we choose our own puppy? You will be asked to visit the Farm at your puppy picking appointment and will be given an hour to choose your puppy. The choice is yours. Please understand that we cannot guarantee gender availability. When it comes to our donated therapy/service dogs, we will choose the top two for you and then you can make your choice out of those.
Can we visit Lamgo Farms for allergy testing or just to see the dogs? Every puppy owner that has placed a deposit is invited to the farm between weeks 5 and 6 for a puppy picking appointment. If unable to attend- we can send extra video and pictures or FaceTime the appointment. Unfortunately- we do not allow other visitors due to the health risk for our puppies and dogs as well as for the safety of our family. If you wish to have allergy testing- it’s best to find a doodle owner and see if you can tolerate that particular generation of doodle. We have several pictures, video as well as slide shows showing our grounds, parents and past puppies. You may also visit our Facebook page and join our open forum to communicate with any of our past owners about their experience with Lamgo Farms. We welcome your questions!
Do you do temperament testing? Yes, all puppies are tested at week 5 and the results are emailed prior to your puppy picking appointment.
Do you take weekly pictures of your puppies? Yes, The first week is simply a group photo but individual pictures are taken weekly starting at week 2. Video is taken weekly starting at week 3 and concludes at week 7.
Are your puppies socialized? Yes! We now have 7 children. Ages 21, 16, 15, 13, 9, 1 and 3 months old. We homeschool and are able to hold, socialize using sensory stimulation as well as play with and cuddle your puppy several times a day which prepares them for any home environment.
When do the puppies come home? Puppies are ready to go home on the Saturday between weeks 7 and 8.
Do you have a Health Warranty? Yes, Lamgo Farms has a 2 year warranty over hips and eyes.
Do you Health Test your Breeding dogs? Some are OFA tested but not all. After consulting an Animal Orthopedic doctor- we learned that these tests do not offer the assurance that puppies will not have hip issues. A good line of breeding stock along with cross breeding and proper care of the puppy will protect and prevent hip issues.
Do you allow boarding after the release date of the puppy? Unfortunately, we are unable to keep your puppy past the pick up date. You will be notified within 24 hours after the birth as to your picking appointment time as well as puppy pick up date/time/information. This will allow you at least 7 weeks to make pick up arrangements. Pick up is on a Saturday between 10-11am. We do sometimes offer a Friday pick up by appointment. Lamgo Farms is closed on Sundays and cannot do picking appointments or pick up appointments at that time.
Do you fly puppies out of state? At this time, we only fly during the months of November through May. Our summer months are too hot to fly. Flying is an additional $450.
What is included in the price of the puppy? An awesome Lamgo Farms PUPPY. . . complete puppy packet: Crate, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, treats, scented blanket from littermates, training material, folder with health records, pedigree, etc, emailed photo collage of your puppy as well as a 10 lb bucket of premium puppy food that will last a few months.

Do you offer discounts: Yes, we offer a $300 discount for our Military owners. Once a year we also offer donation dogs for those medically requiring therapy or service dogs. Please email me your circumstance and we will pray and ask God for the answer.
Do you have a Spay/Neuter clause? Yes. All of our puppies are sold with our contract stating all males must be neutered before 5 months old and females must be spayed before 6 months old. We no longer sell for breeding purposes.
What sets Lamgo Farms apart from other Goldendoodle breeders? First, having 14 years experience in breeding Goldendoodles- we have learned quite a bit about what to breed to create the perfect doodle for every coat type and personality desired as well as our dedication to each litter. Living on a farm and homeschooling allows us to constantly lay hands on the puppies and give them the ultimate care they need and you desire in a breeder. We care greatly for our puppies and owners and strive to give that personal touch to every one and puppy that comes our way. We also trust God to give us the perfect puppy you desire. We pray over every breeding and puppy and are genuinely blessed with the ability to raise these fluffy friends.
