Welcome back to another week at Lamgo Farms! I’m so excited you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening with our family, farm and fluffy friends.
We are about to send another beautiful litter home this coming Saturday and I cannot believe how times seems to speed up the older I become. For instance, I started writing this blog at 2pm and it’s already almost 4:30pm. Of course, that includes letting a few puppies outside, changing a few diapers and starting a paragraph over after my little one pushed “delete” for me.
It’s all good though. What is life without a few unexpected surprises. I can say one thing for sure, the Lamgo’s are never bored.
With so many on spring break this week we have had quite a few inquiries for future litters. If you scroll down past the current litters, you will see just what is coming up and who is in the breeding process.
I will start lists on these next week after we complete all inseminations and breedings. At that time we will accept deposits.
Just a little note on deposits. One reason I like to wait until the breeding process is because we do not refund deposit. We want our owners to research and be certain and invested in the decision to get a Lamgo Farms puppy prior to placing a deposit.
With that said, deposits can be transferred to another litter if you are unable to take one from the litter you’ve selected. Waiting until we begin a breeding should shorten that period of time that can allow unexpected events to cause a cancellation to occur.
In the end- we want what is not only best for our puppies but also what is best for you, the owner. If at any time you have questions about this breed or how to transition into having a new puppy in your home, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I may need to schedule you for a phone call or text, but we are more than happy to talk puppy to you!
Speaking of settling into having a puppy; I’d like to share that we too go through the new puppy phase every once in a while. We often keep puppies from our litters to further lines which means I too go through all the stages you are going through at your house.
We have fallen in love with the “Snuggle Puppy” plush toy that has a heartbeat and warmth that mimics a littermate to help puppy settle and sleep at night. Our little Emerald has slept through the night since the first night her littermates left our house. It’s a must have when taking home a puppy. We love it so much, we now have it in our store. To visit our store, just click on the Snuggle puppy picture here.
Now, I won’t keep you any longer. . .let’s scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters.
Here is what we have now
and what is coming up soon.
Scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit, pricing, how to reserve a puppy and to answer many questions.
Parker’s F1bb Pocket Goldendoodles
Parker’s puppies are here!!! She delivered 4 girls and 2 boys on Sunday, January 19.
What’s Happening Now:
Well, it’s actually here! Puppy picking and pick up is this Saturday. Can you believe it? It seems to take forever to get to this point and then bam. . .it’s upon us.
The puppies are doing great! They have been in their crates by themselves and are learning to settle. They also had a check up with the vet to make sure everyone is doing well. You will receive all of that information when you get here.
Everyone is doing well on hard kibble and as usual- they are all playful and loving the social part of life with our kiddos.
What Happens Next:
At this point everyone should have received all of your emails by now. I’ll be sending a reminder email on Friday just in case. I will be taking new pictures tomorrow.
These puppies are priced at $2,400

Sanjay and Paddington F1bb Petites
Sanjay delivered 4 girls and 2 boys on my Mother’s birthday, February 11, 2020. They are all red. Some are curly and others are wavy. This is a mostly curly litter with all medium to dark red coats.
These puppies are a petite size maturing between 16-20 lbs.
What’s Happening Now:
These chunky babies are already 4 weeks old! They are walking and talking and playing both with each other and with their toys. They have started eating their first food, gruel which is a mixture of our puppy food, nutritional supplement, milk replacer and warm water all blended up. They love it! They walk in it, they lick it off of each other, some lay in it. HaHa! Once they get those first teeth coming in, we will start them on some hard kibble.
They are still nursing and sleeping quite a bit of the day, but they are doing more and more playing. This week they received another preventative worming.
What Happens Next:
Week 5 is when we do our temperament testing. The results will be emailed during week 6 though. Also during week 6 I will be emailing your puppy picking instructions, directions and your invoices. During week 7 I will email your reading material and pick up instructions. For those getting ready to set up vaccinations- that information will be in your Reading material email.
Our picking and pick up for this litter will be Saturday, April 4th. This is the Saturday before Palm Sunday. The puppies will be 2 days shy of 8 weeks old which is just fine. We can avoid interrupting your Easter plans this way as well. Your picking times are listed below. Everyone gets one hour to choose your puppy and go through your puppy packets.

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? Complete the contact form located at the end of each litter. Then make your deposit payment by choosing the Buy Now button under the litter in which you wish to reserve your picking spot. For litters not yet listed please Email me at email@example.com 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.
Are Deposits refundable? Unfortunately, due to the high demand of our puppies, we no longer refund deposits for any reason. 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 8 children. Ages 23, 19, 17, 15, 12, 3, 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 pet cargo 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. We can fly during the off season with Flight Nannies only.
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.

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.
