Welcome to this week’s Update at Lamgo Farms! I’m happy you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening on the farm, with our family and of course, our furry friends.
Apologies for being behind this week. It’s been another busy one as spring has sprung and well now I think we may have actually skipped it and hopped directly into Summer this week.
I’m a cool weather gal so brace yourselves for the typical complaints as the mercury rises.
I’m not sure why I’m surprised when summer starts sneaking up on me each and every year. I’ve been in Texas now for 21 years. You’d think I’d get it by now. But no. It’s like I’m shocked when that first spring day turns 80 and above.
Welcome to my weekly weather complaint. LOL!
In all seriousness though. . .let’s talk a little about weather. I think one of the reasons Doodles and I get along so well is our cmmon love of cooler weather. Doods do love to be outside, but for our owners living in warmer climates, know that your doodle will need to be inside in the a/c if the outside temperature breaks 90 degrees.
Brief playtime outside is just fine. Make sure your doodle has a shaded area with plenty of water and then back inside to cool off. You don’t want to leave your baby outside during the hot day while you leave.
Grooming is also incredibly important during the summer. While the long coats can add some heat, keep in mind that the coat is there to protect your dog so do NOT shave all the way down to cool your doodle. You’ll want to leave a good 2 to 3 inches as the coat acts as a protector from the sun that can burn the skin.
Now, every doodle will be shaved all the way down at least once in their lives. The coat that has mats will need to be shaved. That is unavoidable. Just remember that if you do shave down, you’ll want to limit outside full sun playtime until that coat grows out a few inches.
Water, water, water! Your doodle, especially a new puppy, will need to hydrate even more during the warmer months. I know needing more water means going outside to potty more which can be a little cumbersome. But your doodle, no matter the weather, needs to have constant access to water with the exception of the night time routine.
Don’t forget the PAWS! This one can be easily skipped. Hard surfaces will act as a stove in even a moderate heated day. Paws are quite sensitive to heat and going for a walk on a hot sidewalk will burn them.
If you aren’t sure if the concrete is too hot or not, test with your bare feet. If it’s too warm for you- it’s too warm for them.
Choose a soft surface such as grass, for playtime or walks.
Finally, remember that puppies cannot regulate their temperature, so protect their time outside just like you would a human baby. If it’s too hot for you- it’s too hot for them.
Ok, let’s cool this all off and scroll down to see just what is happening in each of your litters.

Current Litters and Available Puppies
Boston and Paddington F2b Mini Goldendoodles
Boston delivered 5 boys and 1 girl on Thursday, February 16, 2023. The first pick of this litter has been reserved and will be choosing the only girl. Only boys are available. These puppies will be chosen on April 1st and will go home April 15.
These babies will mature between 20-30 lbs. Welcome letters have been emailed. Please let me know if you have not received yours. Video will start next week.
Final 2 Picking spots available- Males
What’s Happening Now:
This is such a fun stage with the doodles. They are waddling around, becoming a little more adventurous and everyone is starting to “talk” a little to me.
These sweet personalities are starting to show and when I’m sitting down and playing with them, they seem to be so grown up. But then when I see them on screen I realize they are still just little babies.
They are enjoying their gruel and we will be adding a few hard kibbles in their food as some teeth are starting to come in. Once everyone has their teeth in we will begin moving mama away during the day in preparation for full weaning.
What Happens Next:
Week 5: Temperament testing- Testing results will be emailed on Wednesday, Oct 12th. There will also be new video uploaded to our Youtube channel on the 12th for those choosing via video or virtually.
Week 6: Puppy Picking!!!! Please refer to your welcome letter for picking times.
Week 7: Crate training and bell potty training
Week 8: Going Home!
Boston’s Past Puppy
Pearl and Kevin’s F1b Mini Sheepadoodles
Pearl delivered 3 girls and 6 boys on my daughter’s birthday, February 27. We have male picking spots available. These are a miniature size maturing around 20-30 lbs. The are typically shorter and more of a stocky build. The coats are to die for. Puppy picking will be Saturday, April 8 and pick up will be Saturday, April 22.
Pearl is an F1 Moyen Sheepadoodle and is the daughter of our Poppins and Banks. Pearl and Amethyst are sisters so we expect this litter to look quite like our recent Amethyst pups that have already gone home. This is Pearl’s first litter.
The Girls’ Collar colors: Pink, Purple, and Lime Green (all black with white markings)
The Boys’ Collar colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Green and Burgundy
Four Picking Spots Available
What’s Happening Now:
It’s week 3 and the first video has now been posted to our Youtube channel “Happenings at Lamgo Farms.” Make sure you subscribe and turn on the notifications to make sure you know when videos are posted each week.
The puppies all have eyes open now and they are becoming more and more mobile each day. The kids like putting them down and calling them to see who will respond. Training seems to be happening a little early this time around for these babies.
This week we’ve continued socialization and basically, just loving on these babies.
What Happens Next:
Week 4: we will see the puppies more awake this week and we’ll see them start to play with each other at this point. We’ll see that they go from crawling to walking.
During this week the puppies will receive another deworming preventative.
Week 5: Temperament testing
Jasmine and Beans F1bb (Pocket/Petite’s)
Jasmine delivered 5 girls and 4 boys on March 4. This litter combines both our Pocket size (8-15 lbs) and our petites (16-20 lbs). Most will mature around 13-16 lbs, however around weeks 4 and 5 we will note some smaller and others that will be larger than that normal range.
The first pick of this litter is taking lime green girl.
I will be able to see in a few days just which puppies will be curly and which will be wavy. The colors are all shades of red and peanut butter.
Jasmine is the daughter of our Mrs. Beasley, one of our most famous doodles. Her puppies are all very sweet, loving, smart and like to cuddle.
What’s Happening Now?
We are at the 2 week mark and right now we only have a few sets of Eyes opening up. As soon as all eyes are open, I’ll take individual pictures for you.
This week begins our deworming process and potty training! We give a preventative dewormer every 2 weeks starting at 2 weeks old. This ensures your puppies do not go home with parasites. Usually your vet will continue this process with a monthly chew.
Potty training begins on the potty pad for us. The puppies crawl to the pad to eliminate and then crawl back to the bath rug we use as their bed. As they grow the potty pad is moved farther and farther away until they are going potty outside in their little protected grassy area.
While we’ve been holding and handling each puppy right from birth, this is the week we start our social stimulation. We massage certain points on the puppy as well as hold them on their backs. This has been proven to relax them as well as increase blood flow. This in itself has great health benefits as well as behavioral benefits. It’s amazing that this little routine we started years ago because it seemed so natural is now being adopted by breeders everywhere.
What Happens Next?
Week 3: Video begins this week!!! Yay!!! I’ve found that video along with the pictures each really does help with the selection process. For those first pick of the litter individuals- I recommend starting with your perfect puppy list and begin to rate your favorites as well as having a process of elimination. Are there any you don’t particularly care for? Make these notes to help with clarity the actual picking day as it can be overwhelming.
Past Jasmine/Beans puppies all grown up
Jasmine’s past puppy all grown up

These puppies will go home
Our UPCOMING Breeding Season!!!
Our next breeding season will have puppies going home between May through August 2023. I will try to get pictures of the parents up over the next few weeks. You can take a look at prior weekly updates to see pictures of parents and past puppies.
Charmin/Paddington F3 Mini’s: 20-30 lbs. Blond, apricot and light reds. Mostly wavy coats still non shedding. Breeding in April with pups going home around August 2023. $1950
Bella/Paddington F2b English Cream Mini/Mediums: 20-40 lbs. We know at week 5 which puppies will be mini’s and which will be mediums. Soft cotton wavy coats mostly. We occasionally have cotton curly coats. Blond / peanut butter colors. $1950
Emerald/Paddington Mini’s: 20-30 lbs. Red and cream. Wavy and curly coats. Breeding in March with puppies going home around July 2023.- this breeding may change to a different sire. $1950
CD/Paddington F2 Mini Goldendoodles: 20-30 lbs. Mostly wavy coats. All shades of red. Breeding in April with puppies going home around August/Sept 2023. $1950
Ethel/Beans F1b Petite Double Doodles: 16-20 lbs. The Double Doodle is the cross between a Mini Labradoodle and a Mini Goldendoodle. We then took the product of that which is Ethel and bred her to a toy poodle, Beans to give us the F1b Generation. The result is a soft cotton wavy or curly coat that is a deep red. We often have chocolate noses and the eyes tend to look more like a labradoodle. The addition of the golden retriever in the line and diluted lab means a very sweet and loving doodle without the excessive damage a Lab puppy can bring. Breeding in April with puppies going home around Aug/Sept 2023. $2100.
The FALL/Winter schedule will be posted in a few months.

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.
Puppy Purchase Deposit
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.

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.

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.
