Welcome to another update at Lamgo Farms! I’m so happy you’ve round your way here to see just what is going on with our puppies and people!
We are currently in the winter season here on the farm. And by winter season. . .I mean- today was cold and wet. Those two together make for a somewhat miserable day when working outside.
The dogs love the cold but the wet and cold isn’t really their cup of tea. While some bolted for the door to go outside this morning there were a few that literally just sat and looked at us like “I don’t think so Biff.”
Just a reminder for all of our Doodle fans. . .puppies aren’t able to regulate their temperature so extreme cold and hot climates can be quite dangerous for them. A quick outside to potty is about all they can do in the extremes.
Some may find it difficult to even go potty when it’s super cold out. If that is your pup- remember you can use a potty pad in a garage, on a patio or in a playpen as an option.
You can still work on outside activities inside as well. Like leash training. In the beginning, I suggest putting on the leash and letting puppy run around with it to get use to the feel of it without you holding on. They’ll step on it which teaches them the feel of the pull, they’ll bite on it and even play with it.
So keep all of that in mind when you choose which leash you prefer to use since they may just destroy a nice one. For our puppy owners, your leash in the puppy packet would be a good starter leash for you.
Once they get the feel of the leash, then you can hold on to it and walk around the house a bit. All of this is a great way to get started without even venturing outside to go on a walk.
For those new to following- I’m originally from Colorado. We moved to Texas about twenty years ago. Days like today that start out nice and cloudy with a chill are my favorite. I’m suddenly taken back to my childhood in the foothills.
It’s funny how a temperature, smell or sound can restart the memories.
Dogs were a big part of my life growing up. Just to give you a peek into some of my favorites. . .we had a huge blizzard that rendered us home bound for a few days. You have to understand that most snow days we just altered our schedule leaving for school at tad early and altering our wardrobes to boots instead of mary janes.
This particular year we had family visiting at the same time the snow came in. Other than the never ending play with my cousins, I remember how the snow was so tall and stiff that all of the neighborhood dogs were running from yard to yard as the snow was higher than the fences.
We had a little Schipperke, “Skipper” that was having the time of his life with a yard bigger than Heaven.
Now back to the Texas present. I think my dogs know I like the cold. When we went out this morning, they started just jumping around me as if to say, “look mom! it’s cold!” It was like they were happy for me.
And that my friends is a dog all wrapped up in three words. . .”Happy for us.”
If you don’t yet own one. . .just consider a never-ending unconditional and non judgmental friend always happy to see you. Well, the judgemental part may be questionable. My Shih Poo does give me looks.
Ok, our walk down memory lane now has me tired. Let’s turn our attention to just what is happening in each of our litters this week. Scroll on down and I’ll see you all next week.
Litters Coming Up:
Ethel and Beans
F1b Petite Double Doodle
Ethel delivered 2 boys and 3 girls on December 4. These puppies will go home January 29.
What’s Happening Now:
Well, it doesn’t matter how many puppies pass through these doors. . .it is always a bit sad when we come to the final week here on the farm. I’m so very happy to see the smiles and excitement on new owners’ faces, but I do get attached and that final goodbye kind of hits you in the gut.
The busy of getting puppies ready to go helps ease the anxiety of those final days. Getting puppy packets ready, paperwork, and baths fill the final moments.
This week we will move the puppies to their own crates to get them ready to go home.
What Happens Next:
I’ll be emailing your puppy pick up information as well as your invoices.
Jasmine and Beans
F1bb Pocket/Petite Goldendoodles (AKA Micro Mini size)
Jasmine delivered 3 girls and 4 boys on December 15. All red with some wavy and some curly.
Litter ALL RESERVED!- we are taking names for the wait list just in case we have cancellations.
What’s Happening Now:
These babies are just the perfect TeddyBears! They are so personable just following us everywhere we go. It’s all I can do not to squeeze them!
Right now the babies are still spending all of their time with mama except when she goes out to play in the morning and evening hours. They’re now eating solid food with those little teeth!
This week they’ll have another deworming preventative and next week will be vaccinations.
What Happens Next:
Week 6- temperament testing results are emailed. Puppy picking video is posted the Wednesday prior to picking. Picking for this litter is Jan 29. This is a virtual picking.
Week 7- Vaccinations
Week 8- The plan is to release the puppies on February 12th which will make them 8 weeks and 3 days old. If puppies are not close to the 2 lb mark then we would want to keep them until the following Wednesday which is February 16th. I will know more at puppy picking and will make a decision at that time so you can make your travel plans.
F2b Red Mini Goldendoodles
Rosita is expecting puppies due February 12. Keep in mind that much like human pregnancies- puppies can be born a week before or a week after this estimated due date.
I will announce the arrival of the puppies on our Facebook page. So please, if you are on the Facebook platform, please follow our page. Once puppies are born I will email everyone on the list with a Welcome latter. This is usually sent out a week after birth.
All other updates will be made right here.
Rosita’s puppies are usually all shades of red and a few apricot colors. These are a smaller miniature litter which is estimated to mature around 20-30 lbs.
Her litter size is usually 6 to 7 puppies.
Right now we have the final picking spot in this litter available.

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.
