Just wanted to let you know that Riggin is doing so great! We love him so much! He has a wonderful personality, has been so easy to crate train and potty train and clearly was handled and cared for and prepared for us by you so well – he simply is a dream puppy! Thank you for raising such a wonderful puppy! We just couldn’t be any happier with our little guy! Oh and we kept his name as Riggin but it has turned into mostly Rigs which seems to suit him well 🙂

Happy Spring…love Luna!!
Hi Pamela. I was surprised and excited to see Luna on your testimony page! Thank you! I just noticed her momma has more puppies…. Whoever gets them will be so very lucky….not only gorgeous babies but such GREAT dispositions. I would be happy to be a reference to how awesome her puppies are if you need me.
This is probably overkill in the picture department for you (I am sorry….lol), but here is a close up of her coloring for you to see in case you are curious (please ignore my goofy self in the pic!). OK….. I may be bias J but Luna is the most gorgeous/unique looking Doodle I have ever seen! I am sure you remember…she was very cute, completely jet black as a puppy but now look….beautiful beyond words. (and she weighs about 18 ½ pounds, so exactly within the range you predicted.) Anyway, I noticed you had her momma’s pups online and if anyone needs reassurance of what Dotty’s pups look like when they get older, one look at Luna is all it takes and know that I am happy to be a personal reference as to how great their personalities are, too!

2/19/15 ~Why I wish I would have chosen Puppies Up North…read of my regret!
Hi Pamela, We have a wonderful GoldenDoodle, Misa (rhymes with Lisa) She rarely barks, loves to cuddle, and is full of tail wagging happiness. What might be surprising is that we have some regrets about the way we adopted her. We did not buy her from Puppies Up North. This is our story.
Pamela and Mike have worked with them on some commands like, “puppy come”. “treat”, “sit”, and “go potty”. I don’t know if they know them 100% when they go their new homes, but it’s obvious they are getting socialization! She takes the puppies for car rides, takes them on walks, and introduces them to things like kennels! They let you know how to prepare your home for a puppy, and what to expect as they grow.
When people ask where we got Misa, I tell them I wouldn’t recommend the place we got her from, but I absolutely direct them to Puppies Up North. ~ thanks, Amy

10/28/14 ~ Good Morning Pamela- I wanted to update you on the most amazing puppy there is, Jorja. Tomorrow will mark 6 weeks that we’ve been together and I can no longer remember not having her. She has exceeded expectations in every way. She is incredibly trusting and extremely well socialized, people are simply her favorite thing. She has grown to 7 pounds but is pretty convinced she weighs closer to 70!
Ann & Arthur Kennedy
10/10/14 ~ Pamela, Just wanted to tell you How well Sophie is doing. She has learned to ring a bell to let us know she needs to go outside. We just have to ask her if she needs to go potty? And she goes and rings the bell. She hasn’t had an accident for several days. She has been to puppy socialization class and she will sit,shake and lie down for me. She plays really well with the other puppies. We start Puppy Kindergarten on Sunday. My grandkids love coming over to play with her and she greets them with kisses. She is everything we wanted in a puppy and we know she will grow to be a great dog. Thanks for the great puppy.
9/29/14 ~ Pamela,Here is Luna (Taffy)! She is such a pretty girl. She has grown a pound since we got her. She now weighs 6.2 pounds! We were at the vet last Friday for her 12 week check-up and shots..and the whole place was smitten with her. 🙂 (As you can see in the picture, she still loves the toy you sent in her puppy basket!) Melissa (North Dakota)
9/24/14 ~ Pamela, I have to tell you about this incredible little girl. We are really getting settled in together and can’t believe how lucky we are to have her.
Last night was our first Puppy class and Jorja was a rock star. She is the youngest and smallest but that doesn’t hold her back at all. Her socialization skills are far beyond the other pups. She is anxious to meet both people and other dogs. During play time she jumped right in and even when she was buried under the bigger dogs, never cried or ran. She just wiggles her way out and jumps back on top of the others. When it got to learning commands, I was almost embarrassed. Sit is one of her favorite things to do and most of the time I don’t even have to say the word, just hold my hand up and down she goes. The others got it about 1/2 the time so she was a little advanced. We worked on getting the pups to look and the hardest thing for us was to get her not to look so we cold give the command. She generally looks up every few steps for re-assurance and to make sure we are still doing what she thinks we are.
9/23/14 ~ Pamela ,Just wanted to let you know DIXIE, (MINI GOLDENDOODLE) arrived safely and so happy!! Wagging her tail the whole time. She went potty in the pet area and we are ready to head home! She is sooo cute!! Michael & Family (Atlanta, GA)
9/17/14 ~ Pamela, Bob and I named our puppy Bentley. He is a very good puppy and already knows his name, come, eat, and potty. He goes to sleep in his kennel when he is tired and sleeps all night. We are so in love with him. Thank you so much!! Bob and Georgia
3/23/14 Pamela, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your beautiful SPOODLE, Yenta. She has been in our home for five weeks now and is the best puppy! She has a wonderful temperament and loves everyone who comes to visit. I started her in puppy socialization classes at the Superior Animal Hospital and, after we complete those classes, I will be enrolling her in puppy kindergarten classes. Yenta “tells” us when she has to go outside and is almost completely housebroken already. She has adjusted to her kennel well and sleeps through the night. Thank you for giving Yenta such a wonderful start in life at your farm. She is amazing and we feel very lucky to have her in our life. Debbie (from Superior). I attached a recent picture of our beautiful puppy.
2/26/14 ~ Hi Pamela – Just wanted to give you and update on little Mason. We named him Oliver Maxwell or Ollie for short. He fits right into our family! Such a good boy. My kids are in heaven with him and he is such a mommy’s boy. I had him in to our vet yesterday. He weighs 7 pounds and everything looked good. Here are a couple of pics… Thanks! Kara
3/13/14 ~ Grandma, I am doing well. I got to my new house and drank water and then I went outside and pooped and peed. My new Mommy sits on the floor with me and I curl up and go to sleep. Then I walk about 3 feet away and run back. Miss you! Pam
3/9/14 ~ Hi Pamela, We had first puppy class yesterday and Gigi did great. This is us with Gigi. She was the tiniest puppy but she held her own. Potty training is going well. Sometimes there is an accident but that’s bc mom and dad aren’t paying close enough attention. It just happens sometimes. Bedtime is so much better! We are quiet and go right to sleep. We are focused on crate training right now, so we don’t hate being alone in the crate so much. Thanks for everything! Stephanie (Stephanie Rasley, CPO-CD® / Certified Professional Organizer / www.
3/14/14 ~ Pamela, Carmel is just a little angel. She has done amazing on potty training. She is a lover !
3/16/14 ~ Hi Pamela, Just a quick note to let you know that Riley is doing very well in Tucson, AZ…we’re happy parents. Yes…he’s had a few accidents in the house, but probably more on us than him. He’s so good simply being with us that we, on occasion, lose track of time and it’s too long between pee breaks. He sleeps most of the night without getting up from his crate in our bedroom…oh, he does snore a bit! All in all, he’s a love. Enjoy a pix from earlier this week, and one with his cousin (our daughters dog), Lily, a 1 year old 55 pound goldendoodle.

- Hi Pamela ~ I just wanted to tell you that we just picked up Izzy from the airport! We are in love with her already and she is georgeous! Thank you so much for taking such good care of her. You can really tell she grew up in a good home. I was so nervous to have her come to us by plane, I was a wreck thinking about it…but she was friendly and happy when she arrived! I thought Izzy would be very upset but she is not! Thank you again so much, it is the best thing that has happened to us in a very long time! 4/12
5/16/12 ~ Hey Pamela…I loved coming to your house and letting my grandchildren play with your puppies…thank you for letting us come…here are some pictures I took while we were there! Cheryl
5/22/12 ~ Duke is a delightful addition to our family!!! He has just the right amount of sweetness and sassiness. Duke is a cuddle bug that enjoys being on your lap or right next to you. It was especially wonderful to receive a dog that is potty trained and can sit and shake. I can’t thank you enough for giving us such a lovable addition to our family!! Hale Family – Alaska
7/28/13 ~ Hi Pamela (Puppie Up North) Just a little update in case you’re interested in knowing what he is up to: Kemba was up to 3 and 3/4 pounds at his first vet appointment and he is going back in a few weeks for the other shot that we were a little too early for the first time. He is so very smart!! Aside from knowing how to sit, he is now a master at “lay down” and “shake” he is learning by hand cues so he can do verbal or nonverbal! He is in the process of mastering “off”. He was also play biting my hands a lot when I’d pet him and he just wanted to play so we worked on it for one day and now he just licks and loves being petted-he is so smart!! He can go up and down our back porch steps on his own where he potties, and loooves running up to our second level (but hasn’t tried coming down yet) He loves his cuddle time and has an obsession with napping on Kyle’s foot if he is sitting in the rocker (must be a guy thing to like stinky feet!). He also loves to cuddle on my neck! He likes playing pig in the middle with Kyle and I. We roll his tennis balls back and forth to each other and he tries to catch them. When he does he runs to this chest we have and hides under it. He tries taking the ball with but he wont fit under it when he has the ball in his mouth. It’s so funny. It’s like a little game for him to catch it, go under the chest, then release it. It’s a little routine he created-his tail wags the whole time)We have the funniest, cutest, pictures of him, we are just having a blast with him and he is so happy and well socialized I know we will have such a great dog on our hands!!! – Kimberly (Duluth, MN)
Hi Pam – Just wanted to let you know how Codi’s first day and night went. He is SUCH a good dog! It’s unbelievable how quickly he’s taken to our family. He just loves the kids, and had so much fun playing with Anders outside yesterday (see pic). What a snuggler too! After the kids were in bed he cuddled and fell asleep in my arms while we watched t.v. He even did really well and didn’t even cry very much during the night. He just fits right in with our family so perfectly! We are so happy and very excited to have him with us. Thank you so much for giving us such a wonderful new addition to our home. I think he will have a great life with us and has already added a new measure of joy to our house. 🙂
