BEST BREEDER!!!! LOOK NO FURTHER!! Ericas doodles is exceptional breeder I called Erica at 1 AM in the morning and she answered her phone because my dog got into some chocolate and I was very concerned that he could die. What breeder will pick up the phone at 1 AM and sit on the phone with you until we arrived at the vet. Erica is truly an amazing breeder. She goes way above as a breeder to insure that you get a healthy pet. All of her dogs are health tested. My friend has a dog from her and the dog is going to be 14 years Mia still acts like a puppy and loves to play and she is the best around children. We are actually on the waiting list to get another one from Erica . We are going to get a standard Bernedoodle this winter we are very excited about our new addition Teddy is going to have a little sister soon.

We got our mini goldendoodle from Erica about a month ago and we couldn’t be happier. She is such a sweet and smart puppy. Potty-training has been easy and she is great with our 3 young children. Erica was so patient with us, as this is our first puppy and we had a lot of questions. She is kind and obviously extremely experienced. I highly recommend Erica to anyone looking for a perfect addition to their family!

When searching for our next family member we came across Erica’s Doodles. Erica made process easy and gave us all information to help raise a healthy puppy. We’ve only had our puppy Deuce for 2 weeks but he’s already doing great with crate training, potty training and basic commands. Not to mention how incredibly gorgeous he is ❤️. I’m so grateful for how well taken care of Deuce was before we picked him up. Will recommend to all looking for any doodles. You won’t be disappointed.

BUYER BEWARE!! Purchased puppy, contract states you will receive your puppies papers after proof of spay, puppy was spayed but the papers have never come. We have made several attempts to get them and all we get are lies…she did not even remember who the parents were!


Christy Warn

I’ve been really interested in getting to know this “ericas doodles” but she never answers cell (doesn’t even sounds like a business voicemail) and your unable to leave a message due to no room in mailbox. What kind of business does she have? I want a labradoodle badly and this is so close to home but this person seems not good at all to deal with! Look at the reviews…..sounds like she doesn’t know much about breeding at all


Pat Hackman

USE EXTREME CAUTION WITH THIS BREEDER!! Our family is a huge dog family. We have mainly had Labradoodles and Labradors. We recently reached out to Ericas to inquire about adopting a puppy. We were told we CANNOT visit a puppy without putting down a deposit first, and then can actually see the puppy at 8 week pickup. Their claim is that the risk of someone bringing parvo to their facility is too great. This is absolutely ridiculous. Ericas also claims that ALL of their breeding dogs are OFA hip and elbow certified and FULLY DNA tested and CLEAR of ALL genetic conditions. A COMPLETE DNA profile will check for between 20/30 breed related genetic conditions and about 160 other conditions. Breeders try to manipulate this by checking.for a few conditions and claiming the dog is 100% clear. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Some breeders will not show a negative DNA disorder because they don’t want anyone to know the dog has it. Genetic disorders generally surface at 2/6 years of age. Ericas will NOT give copies of these reports until the puppy is spayed or neutered at 10 months of age. Their claim is that they want to prevent others from breeding their dogs. Again, ridiculous. OFA has a public website where one can search a dogs OFA number to check which tests are done. Ericas won’t give copies or let you take the OFA number, which again is public record. Ericas is a VERY NON TRANSPARENT breeder. Ericas says you must have your puppy spayed or neutered by 10 months of age! This is WRONG, especially on dogs over 35 lbs. Studies done by Dr. Benjamin Hart, University of California proved that spaying or neutering PRIOR to 24 months of age have substantial increased risks of bone disease, cancers and hip dysplasia. Extensive article can be found on the AKC website. MAKE SURE THIS BREEDER CAN SHOW FULL DNA and OFA REPORTS on the parents of the puppy you are interested in. DO YOUR HOMEWORK. All breeders we have used let us visit a puppy we are interested in, gave us copies of both DNA and OFA reports, and recommended spaying or neutering at or close to 24 months of age. When calling this breeder, ask what the OFA hip/elbow grades are on the parents of the puppy you are interested in, then demand to see them, and verify they are from the parents of the puppy you are interested in. Also ask to see the FULL DNA report. It should show between 20/30 breed related conditions as CLEAR.
