Welcome to a NEW YEAR at Lamgo Farms! I am so excited to see what God has in store for all of us this year. Thank you for stopping by to see just what is happening in our family, on our farm and with our furry friends!
I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and were able to celebrate the beginning of a brand new year. Right now we are busy planning our next litters while I tend to our new website and Mobile APP construction.
As usual. . .It’s been slow going right now as my hands are usually holding a baby or a puppy and my preference is to use both hands while typing. So, I’m working a little at a time to get us our new platform with a great APP for downloading forms, accessing this update and making interacting with other puppy owners in your litters easier with just the touch of a few buttons.
Our end of the year is quite predictable as we always find ourselves in a pile of doctor appointments and prescription refills. It’s always crunch time as we try to fit as much as possible in before the new medical deductions, co-pays and out of pockets hit the reset button. LOL!
So thank you all for your patience as we put this update and returned emails on hold. We have the rest of the week off and then next week our next Homeschooling semester begins!
It’s all going by so fast. We will now school full time until the first week in May when our Jacob will be graduating from High School. Perhaps that is why I am soaking in my time with all of our littles as well as those speeding through middle and high school. It goes by so fast. Yep, I’m that old lady telling all of you with littles to slow down, smell the roses, dance in the rain, watch that movie again, stay up late and talk, drink the chocolate milk and smile at the chaos of it all.
If you’ve spent any length of time following my family and myself then you know that I am the queen of chaos. There is no escape from where I stand, or sit, or even lay. So although I had to actually look at the calendar today to see what day of he week it was, I am trying to set my priorities and stick with them so I don’t miss and regret too much.
I actually really enjoyed how we structured our picking and pick up for our Christmas litter. Picking and pick up were done at the same time just before week 8. One trip. . .one visit. And no one walks away crying because they have to leave their puppy for 2 more weeks.
I will be asking each of those on our lists to vote their preference and then the majority will rule. We will see if you prefer to come and visit at 6 weeks and choose your puppy and then return to pick up at week 8. Or, if you prefer, you can view more videos and pictures and then show up for an hour appointment to choose your puppy and then take it home. Either way- we just want everyone to enjoy their experience.
Ok, now on to what you REALLY came for this week. . .to see just what we have coming up and what is available. Scroll on down to see each litter and search for the picking spots labeled “OPEN.” Available picking spots are listed as open. For those all full, we will be accepting names for our wait list.
Being on a wait list does not cost. We will contact you if we have an opening and you will have 24 hrs to decide whether or not you would like the spot. At that time, you will need to place your deposit.
Ok, ready, set and. . . GO!
2019 Breeding Schedule
Here is what we have now and have planned: scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit, pricing and to answer many questions.
Jasmine “Red”/ Beans F1bb Petite Goldendoodle Litter. Jasmine is a Beasley/Burton Petite Goldendoodle. Beans is a dark red Miniature Poodle. These will be mostly wavy and a few curly. Although this is still classified (as of now) as an F1bb generation- it differs from our other F1bb litters in that the sire is a poodle in this litter. Our other F1bb litters have the Dam as the poodle. I’m sure I’ll come up with another label for this breeding, but for now, I’m leaving it as the F1bb. These petite puppies mature between 18-24 lbs. All shades of red. This is a first breeding therefore we do not have past puppy pictures for this litter.
Our one little Jasmine baby! His name is Milo and he already has his family. Video and new pictures coming! Going home February 1st at 12:00pm.
Milo is doing great! He is being socialized by the girls and myself using a sensory technique. Being an only baby- he will most likely spend more time in our arms getting him ready to go home. He has received his first deworming and is doing well. The greatest changes I’ve noticed come between weeks 3 and 4.
Jasmine has been paired with our new little “Beans.” Not to be confused with our retired, Mr. Bean. Beans is a miniature dark red poodle. These will make the puppies an F1b generation. Because Jasmine is a wavy coat- we are using Beans to make sure we have the desired coats and colors. We do expect mostly wavy coats in this breeding. I’m so excited to see these puppies! Both Jasmine aka “Red” and Beans are dark reds.
Poppins and Banks
F1 Standard Sheepadoodles
This is a first breeding for this litter so no past puppy pictures. Poppins is a standard AKC registered Black and White Tuxedo Poodle and Banks is an AKC Registered Old English Sheep Dog. Poppins is beyond smart and sweet and Banks is just about the best dog we have ever had. He is super sweet to our toddlers and baby and is gentle and kind. I can’t wait to see their puppies!
Poppins has now completed the breeding process. We will wait another 3 weeks to confirm pregnancy. I will then have a more accurate due date. Right now I am setting it at February 24. Puppies should go home around late April. Colors should be black and white, however, with the first generation, puppies will most likely fade to a gray as they mature. We won’t know how much they will fade until we follow this first litter. Poppins’ black coloring could influence the fading gene.
- reserved for Lamgo Farms
- N. Campbell
F1 Mini Goldendoodles
Snowflake has completed the breeding process. We will wait another 2 weeks to confirm pregnancy. Puppies should go home around mid to late April with a due date of February 18th if breeding was successful. These puppies are usually a peanut butter coloring and have wavy coats. They mature between 27-37 lbs.
- Williams (double listed)
Past Snowflake/Burton Puppies:
Lilly and Beans
F1b Mini Goldendoodles
Lilly has just completed all inseminations. We will now wait another 3 weeks to confirm pregnancy. Estimated time to go home will be the last week of April or early May.
Lilly is an F1 Medium Dark Apricot Goldendoodle and Beans is a dark red Miniature Poodle. Puppies in this litter are expected to mature between 30-40 lbs. Based on other litters we have matched together, I expect Peanut butter coloring and all shades of red with more wavy than curly coats. (first time breeding- no past puppy pictures)

Lina just finished her cycle. We have skipped this one and will breed the next.

Planned Spring 2019 Breeding
Jasmine/Beans Petite Red
Jasmine has been paired with our new little “Beans.” Not to be confused with our retired, Mr. Bean. Beans is a miniature dark red poodle. Because Jasmine is a wavy coat- we are using Beans to make sure we have the desired coats and colors. We do expect mostly wavy coats in this breeding. I’m so excited to see these puppies! Both Jasmine aka “Red” and Beans are dark reds.
Jasmine had a singleton for her last litter. So we are transferring many from that list onto this new one and any open spots will be reserved for her next breeding. Not to worry- she will still have a late FALL cycle.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org with “deposit” in the subject line. Note which litter and number on the picking spot you prefer that is listed as open. 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. There is a $5 PayPal processing fee that will be added to your total.
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 22, 18, 16, 14, 10, 2 and 16 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 1 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 a 10 am. 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. We use both Flight Nannies (for dogs that stand no taller than 11 inches) and pet cargo flights.
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. Verification of service is required. 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. We have a medical form that needs to be completed by a doctor to qualify for service needs.
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. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.
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.
