Welcome back to another week’s update at Lamgo Farms. I’m so excited you’ve found your way to our little neck of the woods to see just what is happening on our farm, with our family and our puppies!
Right now our litters are pretty full. We do have a few breedings that will have openings around our Fall season but at this time, our only litters with available picking spots would be our two that were just bred, our Petite Double Doodle and English Sheepie Doodle litters. I will place those in next week’s update.
Thank you all so much for your patience waiting for this update. I almost had it completed last night and then the storm hit which meant it was time to cuddle our little ones around here.
Speaking of storms, I thought I would touch on this subject as we here in Texas are beginning our Spring Thunderstorm season.
I get a lot of questions on Thunderstorms and anxiety in dogs and how one can best support their dog during a storm. My first response is to say that with all of our dogs and puppies, we do not experience anxiety here with our animals. Why is that you say? Well, for one, anxiety in a dog can feed off of anxiety in it’s human. Meaning, if you are acting anxious during a storm and concentrating on it, your dog will pick up on that anxious energy and react.
Keep these things in mind. While a loud thunder can cause a dog to bark as he could be startled, it does not always mean they are scared. Hearing a loud sound can cause a bark because your dog is alerting you to the fact that there was something out of the ordinary happening.
What does bother your dog during a storm? The Electrical currants that come with a thunderstorm with lightening can be felt in your dog. They are very sensitive to this electricity which is felt up and down the back. It is not a painful experience but it alerts them and is not comfortable.
So what can you do during a storm? First during this season, watch for storms and make sure you let your puppy or dog out before it starts to rain or gets near you. It doesn’t have to be raining for that electrical currant to be felt.
Next, I crate my dogs with a large blanket, a few toys and a if old enough, a bone, pig ear or some kind of treat. Some dogs like to be held and even wrapped in a blanket. Ours prefer to be in their crate away from windows. I also have their sound machines turned loud onto white noise to kind of drown out any thunder.
For those super sensitive to storms, holding them wrapped in a blanket helps with the sensation going up and down the spine.
This is simply a starting point. If your dog is supported when young through these storms they can anticipate what will happen each time a storm comes by without experiencing that anxiety that comes from a bad experience. Our dogs have that safety of their “dens” with their soft large blanket and a treat in a safe space so every time a storm comes, they have a “good” experience as opposed to dreading the situation.
Ok, now before this update is yet another day behind, let me close out and let you scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters.
Remember, those inquiring about just how to get on a list, scroll down to the FAQ section which will give you more information on the specifics. Feel free to reach out to me at info@LamgoFarms.com to be placed on a future list. Right now you can expect a 10-12 month wait for the majority of our Goldendoodle litters.

Litters Going Home in 2021
Sanjay F1bb Pocket/Petite Goldendoodle
Sanjay delivered 2 girls and 4 boys yesterday, March 7th. All are shades of red and doing wonderful! I will post more pictures identifying genders on Wednesday. Right now I see maybe one or two curly coats, but the majority look to be wavy. It will take a few days for me to be accurate on that.
We expect both a pocket range of 10-15 lbs and petite range of 16-18 lbs. (Cream, Apricot, and red coloring in both curly and wavy coats. The majority are curly).
What’s Happening Now:
The babies are all doing well and all now have their eyes and ears open! They are still scooting around to get to mama to nurse. The puppies are now 2 weeks old and we have now begun the process of potty training. Yep, you read that right. We have potty pads just off of their bedding so they will scoot over to do their business on the pad and then scoot back to mama. They no longer need mama to help them eliminate although she will still do all of the cleaning up right now.
They spend their days sleeping and nursing still.
What Happens Next:
Week 3 is when we finally get to see the puppies in action. Their first video will be posted to our Youtube channel, “Happenings at Lamgo Farms.”
Week 4: Emails with directions and picking instructions.
Week 5: Temperament testing
Past Sanjay Puppies. . .watch them grow
Maybelline / Beans F1b Petite Labradoodles
Due to the weather we had to postpone Maybelline’s ultrasound. It is scheduled for Monday. I’ll keep you posted as soon as we have answers. If breeding was successful, she would be due around March 22nd which would give us puppies going home the middle of May.
ON ANOTHER NOTE:
Ethel, our Mini Double Doodle (Maybelline’s daughter) is currently in the breeding process. Ethel and our Red Toy poodle, Beans have been paired together to give us Petite F1b Double Doodles!! We expect reds, maybe apricot and possible black. I’ll post pictures next week.
( black, red and apricot) Wavy thinner more wire coats.
Poppins / Banks F1 Moyen Sheepadoodles
Poppins delivered 3 girls and 4 boys on Saturday, March 20th. All are doing great! The vet will be coming over on Wednesday to remove dew claws.
Right now eyes and ears are closed and they use their sense of smell to locate mama to nurse.
These puppiese are more of a medium size vs our Lina Standards. They are black and white with some having black and white faces and others having black faces with a black and white body. They are mostly wavy with some curly. These babies mature between 45-55 lbs. We have had a few mature at 60 lbs. We are generally able to pick out those that will be larger around 5 weeks old.
Pictures coming soon!
Emerald / Paddington
F2bb Mini Goldendoodles
Litter Reserved with a waitlist
Emerald’s pregnancy has been confirmed. She is due April 2nd. Her belly is growing and she occasionally has morning sickness but is still very active and doing well.
Emerald is the daughter of Cheyenne and Duke. Cheyenne is a red and Duke is white. Puppies will have both curly and wavy coats much like our Famous Duke/Daphne F2b past litters. These will mature around 25-35 lbs. Colors will be like our Charmin or Sammy match ups. They will be cream, apricot and a peanut butter color.
Emerald is in the breeding process. Once completed we will wait 3 weeks to confirm pregnancy. If successful, puppies would go home around early to mid June.
This is a first time breeding so we do not have past puppy pictures for this litter, but because we have been breeding these lines for some time and have been matching these colors and coat types, we have a great idea what they will look like.
Below are pictures of some of Sammy and Charmin’s puppies (both Sammy and Charmin are Duke puppies as well and resemble Emerald) for reference.
We also do not have a past litter size to indicate how many picking spots we can reserve, therefore, we will open up 6 spots and then hold a wait list to be on the safe side. Deposits will be accepted once pregnancy is confirmed.
- Waitlist: Spruill, Douma, Lovell
Snowflake / Burton
F1 English Creme Mini Goldendoodles
Snowflake’s next breeding cycle is scheduled for April 2021(cream, peanut butter) Wavy coats. Deposits will be accepted after pregnancy confirmation.

These puppies mature between 20-30 lbs. This breeding is scheduled for August 2021 which would give us puppies going home in December 2021. Charmin delivered 9 puppies in her last litter.

Past puppy pictures coming.
- Saletan- double listed
- Rothstein- double listed
- Waitlist: Lovell
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.
The end of our 2021 season will consist of another Jasmine Petite red litter (first 3 spots reserved) Whitzel, Ethel mini Double doodle litter, Ruby English Sheepie Doodle litter and another Parker Pocket litter 2021(all picking spots reserved. Parker was suppose to cycle at the end of January. At this time we are just waiting. If she had a missed cycle then the next one would be in June. Unfortunately Parker’s cycles are not the same length as our larger doodles, therefore we will watch her carefully between now and June. We have reserved the first spot in her 2021/22 breeding as well.)
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 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.
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.

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 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.
