Welcome to his week’s update at Lamgo Farms! I’m so happy you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening with our farm, family and our furry friends!
It’s here! Christmas is upon us! I know there is a lot to do in the small handful of days we have left to squeeze in all of our last minute shopping.
I know our schedules are getting full so I wanted to remind all of our owners of a few tips to help you through the Holidays with your new furry baby!
For our little puppies just now going home and toddler puppies:
#1– Your number one goal or task this week is to simply LOVE on your puppy! Keep them safe, let them know where their food, bed and potty spots are and just cuddle and love while they get acquainted with you and their new surroundings.
#2– Use your PUPPY PLAYPEN! Your playpen should have something to protect the floor such as the awesome brown painters paper I use in our play area. You can find this at any paint store or one of the big box hardware stores like Home Depot. Put down a few potty pads (Costco brand is my favorite) your puppy’s bed or crate with bed in it, water bowl (food during feeding time) toys, toys, toys, toys, some entertaining background sounds such as a radio or TV and walk away to spend time with the family, wrap those gifts or run those errands, attend parties, etc. When puppy whines. . .as long as you have already played and cuddled and taken them potty. . .just walk away!!!! The whining will stop but you have to ignore it!
#3- Don’t forget play time! I know we are all busy and I want you to use your Playpen as a place where puppy can continue having a potty spot, sleeping spot and play place. . .but don’t forget to add in that puppy play time with you! It doesn’t take long to tucker out a new furry baby so taking just a few minutes socializing your puppy and playing will give them what they both crave and need from you which is human love and interaction. Once you do this, then you can do your playpen time.
#4- The Holiday schedule is simply a PAUSE in your puppy’s progression. You will not go backwards with potty training if you utilize the playpen correctly. Limit puppy’s running around the house during this time. Once you cuddle and play with puppy and use your potty training bells for outside potty time- you can have some limited time of play around the house, but then back in the playpen while you are busy, unable to supervise or play one on one at this time. This is for both your sanity and your puppy’s safety. There are so many things they can get into at this time as well as having potty accidents if they are not placed with their potty pad (in the playpen only) or outside. Again- this is a PAUSE button right now. You can commence with all of the training once the holiday is passed and puppy is a little more mature in another week or so.
Hang in there! I have 2 puppies home with me as well as Holiday boarding. I’m right there with you!
And for those inquiring about a new puppy. . .we have 2 Diana black mini goldendoodle males available for Christmas! Scroll down to see which ones and to see our other litters with available picking spots.
Although this week has been its usual busy, it has been quite a bit more relaxing now that we have all of our Sheepadoodles in their new homes! Thank you to everyone who shared our posts and pictures of our little Panda puppies!
I love having referrals and knowing our puppies are going to such wonderful homes! Word of mouth referrals, people seeing our puppies in public and of course –owners coming back for siblings is greatly appreciated and very humbling. We love our puppy owners! Thank you again for your trust and sharing our name with others.
We are enjoying this time with our puppies. There is something about puppies and the holiday season that just brings out the joy in everything we do. Tonight, since it’s more like spring and summer weather around here lately. . .after chores we all sat around the table outside of the puppy nursery cooling off while watching the dogs enjoying the wind.
This is joy. After a long hard day of work, cleaning and making sure each puppy and dog get our attention and love- it was time to sit back and watch the beauty of it all. We are so very fortunate to be able to do a job that has puppy cuddling right at the top of our to do list.
It is work, but it is awesome work. Thank you again and again for choosing Lamgo Farms. We pray each of our owners are truly enjoying their doodles even if those puppy moments get tough.
Now before you close out this page. . .don’t forget to scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters. Keep on going down to the FAQ section to find out answers to specific questions and how to reserve a picking spot for a puppy!!

Diana and Kevin
F3b Mini Goldendoodles
Diana is the daughter of our Charmin and Paddington. She is an F3 Cream Mini Goldendoodle. She comes from the famous lines of Duke/Daphne and Mrs. Beasley/Mr. Bean. She has a beautiful soft cotton wavy coat. We have bred her to our little toy chocolate/white parti poodle, Kevin.
Diana delivered 4 girls and 3 boys on November 3rd.
Red and Orange collar boys are AVAILABLE!!!
What’s Happening Now:
These babies are oh so sweet and doing wonderfully! We are sooooo pleased with this litter. These babies are the sweetest babies we’ve ever had. All of our kids agree. I just love each and every temperament. Diana has now been moved out of the nursery and the babies are eating their gruel and hard kibble. We will be moving to all kibble by Monday.
What Happens Next:
The puppies are in their crates right now with a buddy. We will be moving them to being alone next week. Since we are sending puppies home a tad earlier than we normally do for Christmas, we have a separate set of instructions for the holidays. You’ll be using your playpen/potty pad area with the crate door open for about a week before you close the crate door for night time. I’ll be emailing more about this on Monday.
Ruby and Burton
Mini Golden Sheepie Doodles
Ruby is the daughter of our Old English Sheepdog, Banks and our White English Creme Golden Retriever, Snowflake. We have bred her to our little red toy poodle, Burton to add curl to the coat giving us more of a non shedding quality as well as more of a Goldendoodle wavy/shaggy look.
Ruby delivered 4 girls and 4 boys on November 16. Puppies will go home January 8.
Two Picking Spots AVAILABLE!!!
What’s Happening Now:
Ruby’s babies are all so sweet and absolutely beautiful! Right now we are getting ready for our puppy picking tomorrow! I have 2 picking spots available in this litter so I will know at the end of Saturday just which puppies we will have available.
The babies are enjoying their gruel and are spending more and more time playing with each other and their toys.
What Happens Next:
Next week we will continue socializing and will introduce a few commands. This will be followed by introducing them to their crates with a buddy and then the weaning process. It will all start speeding up for me after picking!
- Liberman- black female preference
- Sneath- peanut butter male preference

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.
To be placed on our generic list (for instance- red mini’s or cream petites) simply send me an email to info@LamgoFarms.com with your preferences, email address and name and I will put you on our master list. Once we have our line up for that preference- I will place your name on the list. Once breeding begins- we will request your deposit.
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? Please send me an email to Info@LamgoFarms.com outlining your preferences such as size, color, coat type (wavy vs curly), gender, and any special circumstances I need to be made aware of for your situation.
I’ll need your name, email address and phone number. Once you are ready, you can make your deposit payment by choosing the PUPPY DEPOSIT button below. Deposits are non refundable but are moveable from one litter to another.
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. Regular puppy pickings will commence this coming Summer 2022!!! 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 25, 20, 19, 17, 12, 5, 4 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. We also send home a 30 day free enrollment with Trupanion Pet Health insurance.
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 $550. 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.
What is your pricing?
Please Text Sandi at 817-366-7995 for current Pricing.
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 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.
