Welcome to this 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 furry friends.
We started our Labor Day with our English Cream Mini Goldendoodle, Rosita- going into labor. As expected, she delivered six beautiful babies. Three girls and three boys.
We do have available picking spots in this litter that will go home October 29. Scroll down to her section to see the new babies!
We have been enjoying this new cooler weather while preparing the farm for the upcoming winter. Thanks to the recent rain, the grounds are a beautiful blanket of green and the lower hay field will be able to give us another cutting.
The sheep have been in heaven chasing after their all you can eat buffet. For Babydoll sheep, they have more pasture than they know what to do with. To make sure they don’t over do it on grass as well as making sure they are kept safe during the night from local wild life, we move them back to the big barn every night.
Eventually we will have their run-in shed built so they can simply walk into their own barn and we can shut the doors. But since that shed is on the back burner of things to do around here, they’ll still go back and forth.
They are so sweet and smart. They follow Phil and the kids now. They are excited in the morning to get out to pasture and their lured back into the big barn at night with a bucket of grain. True Lamgos! It’s all about the food.
Of course the Doodles have been thrilled to be outside in the middle of the day with these lower 90’s and 80 degree days. If you’ve watched us for any length of time, you probably know about my love for cooler weather. Well, my Dogs kind of take after me in that aspect.
Introduce a doodle to snow and you’ve basically given them heaven. Haha! They are cold weather dogs.
Preparing for the next season means grooming for all the dogs. Our dogs are groomed every 2 to 2 1/2 months. We have been using the same groomer for almost twenty years now. Since moving, it’s a little more of a task to drive back to Venus, but until she kicks us out. . .we’ll continue going to our favorite.
It’s about a two week ordeal to groom our flock of doodles. We have both retired moms and dads, the breeding dogs, and of course, the dogs we have just because they are fluff and we love them.
The Doodle coat is constantly growing. Keeping up with grooming is a must. It starts when they are puppies by getting them comfortable with the brush. Whether they need it or not, taking a few minutes each night to just brush a bit will make this task a little easier in the future.
Once the doodle hits around 11 months old you’ll start discovering that if you do not brush the coat will begin to mat. This will ultimately happen to every doodle, so understanding the need to groom every two months is important when investigating whether or not the Doodle breed is the best breed for you and your family.
Knowing we are heading into cold weather, we do another shave down or short cut one last time here at the end of the summer. This allows the coats to be mat free, clean and healthy to start growing out again. I like to keep our doodles and poodles in a “puppy cut” about 2 1/2 to 3″ long. It’s perfect for that “Doodle Pillow.”
Prepare for six to eight trips to your groomer per year. This is just one of those things I recommend when financially considering a doodle for your family.
As much as I want everyone to own one of our Doodles, I prefer to make sure I’m always open about the good and the hard parts about owning one of these sweet babies. I’ve found that knowing these things ahead of time and having the proper preparation will help you enjoy your puppy years and on.
We’ll touch on Potty training next week. That is probably the number one focus for most puppy owners. So we’ll try to tackle that over the next few weeks before moving on to feeding and nutrition.
Until then- scroll on down to see just what we are planning for our Fall breeding season.

Upcoming Litters for the FALL 2022 Season. . .
Rosita/Paddington F2b English Mini Goldendoodles
Rosita delivered 3 boys and 3 girls on September 5th. Momma and babies are doing well. It will take me a few days to tell their colors and see just how dark they will be.
I have 3 picking spots available in this litter. Puppies will go home October 29. Puppy Picking will be October 15.
Welcome letters will be emailed this Friday. This will have an outline as to what you can expect over the next eight weeks as well as all important dates and times for puppy picking and pick up.
Rosita typically gives us all shades of red in her litter with mostly wavy coats and a few curly. These puppies mature between 20-30 lbs.

Lilly’s pregnancy has been confirmed via Ultrasound. Her estimated due date is September 7, 2022. Lilly delivers mostly red babies with both wavy and curly coats. We usually get one light color per litter from her. These babies are estimated to mature between 20-30 lbs.
Her normal litter size is 10-12 puppies.
Right now we have 4 picking spots available.
This litter is estimated to go home around the beginning of November. Keep in mind that this is an estimated due date. Puppies can come a week before or after this date.

Poppins’s is expecting! Puppies are estimated to be due September 23, 2022. Puppies are expected to go home around mid November.
These puppies are absolutely beautiful! They are black and white or brindle and white. The black typically fades although Poppins is a black and white Tuxedo poodle with a non fading gene so some puppies will follow the Sheepdog fading and others will follow Poppins’ non fading gene and will stay dark black with white markings.
These puppies mature around 45-55 lbs. Poppins usually has 9 puppies in a litter. Right now we have 7 picking spots available.
Ivy/Burton F1 Mini English
Red and Cream Mini Goldendoodles (1st litter)-
Ivy is expecting! Puppies are estimated to be due September 7, 2022. Puppies will go home the beginning of November. This is a first pregnancy for Ivy so we do not know a typical litter size for her. We do know the coloring since we have bred Burton to English Creams before.
We will reserve 6 picking spots for this litter. Right now we have 2 open picking spots.
Colors will be all shades of red and some cream or peanut butter colors. These puppies mature between 20-30 lbs and have wavy coats.
Sanjay/Bueller Petite Goldendoodles
Sanjay is expecting! She is due September 23, 2022. Puppies will go home mid to late November. This is a first litter for Bueller who is the son of our own Jasmine and Beans. He is a large Pocket Goldendoodle and has a very dark red soft cotton wavy coat. Sanjay usually delivers pocket puppies but we have paired her with Bueller to give us petites this time around. Lamgo Farms will be keeping the first pick of the litter. Right now we have 3 picking spots available.
Puppies will be all shades of red both wavy and curly coats. They are expected to mature around 13-18 lbs.
I don’t have an ultrasound picture to share as the vet couldn’t grab a good one. But she did confirm pregnancy.
What breedings do 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? 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. Owners unable to attend picking are welcome to choose virtually or by use of the weekly videos.
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 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? All of our parents have had their genetic testing. 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? You will be notified within 1 week 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 11 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.
We do offer an extended stay program that allows your puppy to stay an additional 3 to 4 weeks here at Lamgo Farms. We continue their schedule which includes their potty training, socialization and crate training. Any vaccinations needed during their stay is included with the exception of the Rabies vaccine- this will be given according to your county requirements and an extra charge may apply. The fee for our Extended stay program is $200 per week.
Do you fly puppies out of state? We are able to fly anywhere within the United States. In some circumstances we can also fly to the Territories. At this time we are not flying outside the States. We use a flight nanny to fly in cabin with your puppy from our airport to yours. Prices vary depending on Airline and ticket fees. Right now the price is around $650. We can also meet you at our airports in Dallas if you wish to fly in. We provide the carrier and have puppy all ready for you.

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.
