No! You should buy the right Goldendoodle puppy for yourself. I'll tell you why.
Just like anything, you have to weigh out your risk. You are going to spend a decent amount of money on a puppy no matter what these days. And a puppy is a family member that will be with you for about 15 years. So, you should shop carefully. You'll quickly find that there are many scammers taking advantage of buyers. Many backyard breeders try to make a quick buck that does not know what they are doing.
Here's what you need to know:
#1 Shop For Quality
Spending the most money is not the answer either. You can still get scammed. You can get a Goldendoodle that's not even a Goldendoodle. You can get a 150 lb Goldendoodle. You can get a non-furnished Goldendoodle that sheds buckets. You can get a Goldendoodle with genetic disposition problems or health problems.
#2 Shop Carefully
A good breeder is worth waiting for. Dial-in the breed and a breeder that's best for you, and follow them for a while. Then when the time is right, you already know them, and they know you. You'll have time to get to know their character and if they are reliable. A lot of our buyers develop trust in us, either from knowing someone that has one of our puppies or from following us a while.
#3 Focus on Details
Shop #3 details. Make sure that your breeder can get the puppy to you. (We don't ship outside the USA). Travel had been tricky in 2020, but we've been able to deliver every single puppy this year.
We think 2021 will be better.
Pray. Great things happen when you do that.
