November 21, 2020
Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms!!! Thank you so much for returning to see just what is happening with our Family, Farm, and Furry Friends.
I’m so sorry this update is a little late, but we are excited to have two puppy picking events under our belt with another two coming up.
I love finding out just which owner belongs to which puppy!
Once puppies are all chosen, we move into full training mode. This is our crate training, bell potty training, command training and of course, lots and lots of play and socializing.
I do plan on doing an update next week, but it will be a brief one as we will be turning off all devices for Thanksgiving and the Friday after.
We will be having our Charmin and Jasmine puppy pickings on November 28 and 29th.
For those on their waiting lists- I’ll let you know if we do have an opening. Right now we are currently all reserved for our Winter 2021 litters but we are holding wait lists in case we have any cancellations or more puppies than expected.
Ok, speaking of expectations. . .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 delivered her puppies on October 6th. She has 3 girls and 2 boys. The girls are the Purple, Pink and Turquoise collars. The boys are black and Green. Little black collar boy is the smallest and has a curly coat. This litter goes home December 5th.
What’s Happening Now:
These babies have already been chosen and will be going home in just a few weeks. They have now been officially weaned and are all eating hard kibble. Yep, no watering down food here. They have good sharp teeth and are doing well! For our Pockets, we leave out their food for the first few weeks home so they can graze as they only eat a small amount at a time and we want them to keep up their blood sugar.
Now is when the real work begins. We are continuing to work on their “sit” command this week and they have been in their crates with a buddy or buddies. (Green/Turquoise, Black/Purple and Pink)
What Happens Next:
Individual crate training time. Bell potty training.
The following Deposit button is intended for those already on this picking list. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to placing a deposit as deposits are non refundable. Thank you!
Ruby / Burton medium
Golden English Sheepie Doodles
Ruby delivered 1 girl and 2 boys October 9th. Absolutely beautiful coats! The little black girl has white on her chest and chin like her mama. With the fading Sheep dog genetics, most likely she will also fade to gray. The little girl and the orange collar boy are available. Puppies will go home December 5th.
What’s Happening Now:
Well, these adorably big babies have been officially weaned! They are all on solid kibble and doing well to being without mama. Tomorrow will be their final night with mama in the nursery and then she will move on out. We keep mama near by so she can see them, they can see her to reduce any stress.
We are working on their “sit” and “come” commands and have introduced them to their bell potty training.
We are continuing to socialize them multiple times a day individually. The hard part is walking away. I’m so excited we are keeping one!!!
You should have received directions to the farm, reading material and I will email your temperament testing results this next week.
What Happens Next:
Individual crate training, Continued command training.
Ethel / Samson
F2b Mini Double Doodles
(red/apricot/possibly black) wavy cotton and wire coats. Ethel delivered 1 girl (dark pink collar) and 6 boys on October 14th. This litter will be going home December 11th and 12th. The pink girl is going as the first pick of the litter.
What’s Happening Now:
Puppies have been chosen in this litter and now we just need to let them mature, move away from mama and get ready to go home! Sounds pretty simple right? Well, going home time will be here before we know it.
For this next week, puppies will begin eating more and more solid kibble as those teeth grow and get sharper. They will spend more play time away from mama and as we continue socializing, they will continue to learn their “sit” and “come” commands.
Each of you should have received another email entitled “Reading Material.” Let me know if you did not receive this.
What Happens Next:
Up next is intro to crate training! The puppies will be placed with a buddy or buddies in a crate to get them use to the crate. Once they are comfortable, we will move them to their own crates alone. This is when the bulk of the crate training begins.
Invoices: I will be emailing this early this week.
Charmin / Paddington F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Charmin delivered 6 girls and 3 boys on October 15. Puppies will be going home December 11th and 12th. The boys are the orange, yellow and black collars. All others are girls.
Charmin is one of our Duke/Daphne puppies with a beautiful soft cotton non shedding coat. She gives us a variety of colors: (apricot, cream and peanut butter colors- wavy coats).
What’s Happening Now:
We are already to the point of puppy picking! This time has just flown by for me. For those that may not have seen this week’s video- I have chosen the purple collar girl to stay here with us. I am enjoying all of the suggestions for names! I think we have narrowed it down to Duchess or Diana.
Right now the puppies are still eating gruel with some hard kibble. They are spending more and more time playing with each other and with toys.
Your Temperament testing results will also have your picking schedule as a reminder.

What’s Happening Now:
We are already half way to the going home point! These babies are just the perfect teddy bears. And in true Jasmine fashion, they are all so sweet and gentle.
Right now they are enjoying their gruel and still spend a lot of time sleeping but are becoming very playful. Each puppy is socialized individually three times a day using sensory stimulation.

As you can see, we normally have the same schedule each year. Our dogs typically breed every other cycle. However, sometimes cycles run early or late so this can alter our schedule. Occasionally we will do a back to back breeding and then rest our mama a little longer. It all depends on our mama’s, their health, and our schedule.
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 PUPPY DEPOSIT 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? *** COVID-19: All pickings will be conducted virtually at this time. 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? *** COVID-19: All pickings will be conducted virtually at this time. 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 24, 20, 18, 16, 12, 4, 3 and 2 yrs 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: First set of shots, Crate, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, treats, scented blanket from littermates, training material, folder with health records, Vet check prior to going home, 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 $150 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. Breeding a Lamgo Farms’ puppy will result in a fine. We are pro-breeding and we support many other breeders, we just do not sell for that purpose especially for those who intend to breed for hobby of for just the experience of having a litter. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.
What sets Lamgo Farms apart from other Goldendoodle breeders? First, having 17 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, mom and daddy dogs 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.
