Welcome to another update at Lamgo Farms! This week has been busy and full of fun! So grab a beverage, sit down and enjoy reading about what has been happening on the farm!
We had our first puppy picking in our new building this past weekend. And although we weren’t able to have everything completed. . .it was still a great day and huge success for our family.
It’s hard to tell it now, but Lamgo Farms Goldendoodles was just a tiny small operation back in 2003 when we first moved to Venus, TX. We are now embarking on our 15 year anniversary and can’t believe all of the many blessings God has bestowed upon our family, farm and furry friends!
Our first litter was born in our sunroom in a wire kennel. When we added and totaled 3 litters in one year. . .we had puppies in our bathroom. Yep, that was fun. It was about five years ago that we realized that in order to have all of the sires we are so fortunate to own along with our breeding momma’s, we needed to expand and add a few breeding buildings along with a building to hold just momma’s with their new babies.
Each new addition has been a lot of blood, sweat, sacrifice for the entire family and tears of both joy and weary souls. It’s been a labor of love! We wouldn’t do it if we didn’t love it!
We love each of these beautiful animals and their well being along with comfort, joy and happiness is our main priority. So, we’re constantly improving our grounds, adding special touches for each dog’s temperament and desires and growing.
We also decided with the addition of our newest son and daughter, Nathan and Ava, that we needed to have a special place for puppy picking and pick up so we could concentrate on our owners as well as protect the privacy of our kiddos who have expressed a desire to be a little more anonymous as Lamgo Farms grew in popularity.
And thus, the newest visitation building which is also where our puppies spend their final days here on the farm was built. We are always so thankful to God for each of you who have chosen Lamgo Farms and allowed us the opportunity to grow and serve you better.
The past few days have been a little bit if a strain as our one year old has struggled with sleep. Mixed with the demands of the growing puppies. . .email time has suffered again this week. Hang in there! I usually read the emails and simply cannot get the time to sit down at the computer. Feel free to text me at 817-366-7995 if you need anything. For those who have recently inquired or asked to be placed on a list. If you do not see your name. . .I most likely simply did not get to your message this week. Again, feel free to text me a reminder. Deposit receipts will be sent out next week.
Tomorrow is my botox day for migraines and our son Matthew’s neurological check up. This is an all morning trip to Dallas, so I’ll be a little late returning messages and email for my Thursday email day. Thank you so much for your patience! And thank you all who continue to pray for Matthew! He is doing so well and his smile has fully returned! We are so thankful for modern medicine and all the doctors have been able to do for him. He still has a few vision impairments, but compared to what he was suffering. . .we are so thankful for this improvement. Continue to pray for Matt’s full recovery!
Ok, enough about me, my and mine. . .let’s scroll on down to see what’s happening in YOUR litters. . .
CURRENT and Next Season’s Breeding Schedule: (this is our Spring/Summer 2018 schedule)
Here is what we have now and have planned: scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit and to answer many questions.
Mrs. Beasley/Burton F1b Petites
1 girl, 2 boys
What Happens Now?
The puppies are doing awesome and if you can believe it. . .getting even cuter by the second! These three are going to be hard to say goodbye to! They are just a bunch of fluff balls. We will be moving them to their individual crates this weekend. So many prayers!!! Our goal is to get them use to their crates and sleeping almost through the night for you before they go home. I’ll let you all know how each is doing at puppy pick up. The puppies have now had their first puppy shot and another deworming. They have successfully weaned and are completely on hard kibble.
What Happens Next?
We will be crate training and working on a few commands such as “sit” and “come.” We can get some to “wave” and “shake” but that just takes some time. Each of you should have received an email with reading material attached. Your next email will be sent out Monday. This will have everything listed in your puppy packet and what to expect at puppy pick up. I mentioned to some that we could pick up puppies earlier than Saturday. With them already going home a few days early- I’d like to keep pick up at 10 am on Saturday.
Puppies will be going home Saturday, March 31st at 10am.
Past Beasley/Burton puppies
Sammy/Paddington F3 Mini’s (white, cream, peanut butter coloring 25-35 lbs) Litter Reserved
What’s Happening Now:
Just look at these beauties!!!! I am always so in awe of Sammy’s puppies no matter who sired. They are always so beautiful and so incredibly soft! Each one is so very sweet and beautiful. You can see those little personalities starting to emerge already. The puppies are ready to start their gruel! This is our own mixture of puppy formula, warm water, nutritional supplement, and premium puppy food all blended to an oatmeal consistency. They LOVE it! With so many in a litter, this helps supplement them and give Sammy a break. Once we have little buds of teeth, we’ll start mixing hard kibble in with the gruel. This is the first step in the weaning process. Right now the puppies are simply spending time with momma, learning to play with each other and enjoying being socialized by our kiddos.
What Happens Next:
Week 4 is much of the same. Socializing and learning to eat more gruel. They will also receive another deworming. During week 5 we will complete our temperament testing and then be ready for puppy picking at week 6. I will be emailing each of you next week for directions to the farm and puppy picking instructions to prepare you and answer questions for your puppy picking appointment. Then puppies will be ready to go home at week 8!!!
I did receive a few emails from some of you specifying your pick up time as we will allow early pickups on this litter. I’m a little behind in email (what’s new!)- so if you haven’t heard from me. . .I’m working on getting back to you and have noted your pick up time requests. Thank you!

Puppies can be born up to a week earlier and almost 2 weeks after. Puppies will be estimated to go home around May 19.

This is a first time breeding between the two so we will reserve 6 picking spots and then hold a wait list.
Bella’s inseminations are now complete. Because of her large size and not being sure if she gave us an ovulating cycle, we will need to wait another few weeks to confirm pregnancy. The first signs will be an enlarged uterus and then symptoms of pregnancy such as morning sickness, being clingy to my side and just an overall mild manner. I’ll keep you posted!!!

What breedings to you have coming up? Please scroll back Up for current and upcoming litters (scroll down for more future litters) 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 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 email@example.com 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.
What is your pricing?

Goldendoodles (Standard, Medium and miniature): $1,950
Goldendoodles (Petite, Micro mini’s): $2,100

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.
Pictures and Video: When we do have puppies. . .Pictures will be uploaded in our photo gallery at photos.lamgofarms.com and on our Facebook page. Video will be located on our Youtube channel at Happenings at lamgo Farms. Weekly pictures will start at week 2 and Video will start to be taken when puppies are three weeks old.
