Testimonials about our Labradoodle puppies

We love keeping in touch with our puppies and their families long after they leave our home! Here are just some of the notes and messages we receive from the people that have trusted us with their next family member.  🙂

August 2019

“Archie is so relaxed, he totally fell asleep at the vet!”

Archie on his first convertible ride.

“Mary and family, The drive to the highway was eventful. I think the nerves of leaving in conjunction with the stop and go traffic got the best of Archie and he lost his lunch. But once he arrived to his new home he fell right into place. He’s already had the opportunity to interact with friends and family. He’s stolen my niece and nephew’s heart but most of all he’s been totally welcomed in by his 14 1/2 year old brother, Oliver. Archie has had no accidents and is very astute. He automatically sits for his meals. The amount of energy, love, and training you invest in the pups is very evident and has made the transition so much easier. We are so excited and will definitely keep you updated.

I just want to say thank you for all the work that was done with her before we took her home and all the great advice as she grows as a member of our family. She weighs 35lbs and is Bell of the Ball in our neighborhood with several play mates to play with. We love her and wouldn’t think twice about buying again from you.” – The Harris Family

July 2019 – “Hi Mary, Thank you again for everything!  We are having the best time with sweet Bodie – he really is the greatest pup!  The ride home went smoothly, and he’s acclimating to us and his new home more quickly that we anticipated.  He even made friends with our cat the first day!  Nights have gone fairly smoothly, although he doesn’t love the wet grass at night – but we’ll get that figured out soon I’m sure.  We could not love him any more than we do 🙂 We can not thank you enough!” –  Kat & Morgan

He has learned where we keep the treats and when he thinks he deserves one he will go sit and look up to where they are.” – Ron and Jan

We’re so happy to have him as a member of our family and he has brightened my life. I’ve dealt with issues of depression and anxiety in the past and Porter has played a key role in changing my outlook, so I’m forever grateful for his companionship and for the job you guys did raising him at Valley Vineyard. Much love!” – Ryan C.

Our sweet girl Finley aka “Sundae” from the 2019 Dessert Litter has been the perfect addition. Everywhere we go somebody is commenting on how wonderful she is. From the moment we picked her up, she has been 25% puppy and 75% snuggler. She loves attention and is great with our kids and our cat.” –  @thedoodlefinley on Instagram

May 2019 – “Tuukka gets a lot of attention when we go out and I always brag about what a good job you do. It’s a pleasure to recommend someone. Tuukka likes people. When we’re on our walks and he hears a door open or close, he stops, plants himself, and stares at them to get their attention, he thinks they obviously came out just to tell him Hi. Last weekend, I had a toddler we met throw both arms around Tuukka’s head to hug him before his mom or I could stop him. No problem for Tuukka! I was proud of his non-reaction. My son told me yesterday I won the lottery when I got Tuukka.

She is doing great. She is potty trained, sleeps all night in her crate and even goes in on her own. She is leash trained and loves to run in our backyard and fetch balls. She has had her 2nd round of shots. We can’t wait until she is all done with shots so she can really get out and walk with us. Thank you for all you do to make sure these pups have a good start in life.” – The Bannans

March 2019 “Hi Mary! I wanted to send you quick note of appreciation. Thank you so much for all the love, affection, discipline, time etc. I could go on and on that you put into our pup Remington. We continually get great feedback about his disposition, which is the first thing people notice. He has been such a blessing to our family, and I can’t imagine life without him (I feel like I’m talking about one of my kids.). Thank you for all the work you put into a great start for him and us! He’s so smart and goofy. My mom says he reminds her of a cartoon character. “ – Roni

March 2019 “Hi Mary, I just wanted to give you a quick update on Piper (aka “Cashmere), during her first couple days at home. She is doing amazing and we are all completely smitten! She has been so predictable, sweet, responsive, and completely adorable. She took right to her “play yard”, has been going potty outside in the grass while on her harness and leash, and has even picked up on the clicker = treats and to “sit” for clicks! She is also doing a great job of “sitting nice” for attention and responding immediately to an “OWIE” for nipping fingers or pant legs. After only about 1-2 minutes of cries, she went to sleep in her crate while while snuggled in her “scented blanket”, and slept through the night (whew!) We cannot thank you enough for the amazing care and devotion you gave Piper and all the pups! Because of all your hard work and love, we have been blessed with such a good tempered, smart, and overall amazing addition to our family! Best of luck to you with all the pups on your hands!” – Ashley (& kids)

February 2019 – “Phoebe has grown so much. Phoebe doesn’t bark much. If she hears a noise in the house that she doesn’t recognize, she might let out a few barks and then she comes and either sits in front of me or sits on my lap. Phoebe has lost her baby teeth and has her adult teeth coming in. We didn’t lose any shoes or furniture in the process. Her favorite toys for chewing are the kneecaps you sent home with her, a piece of deer antler, and a little piece of bone. She chews on those all of the time. We are glad the baby teeth are gone. She has learned the command of “gentle” when she is play biting and she will just tooth you softly. She is totally potty trained. We have an enclosed backyard and Doug takes her out to her potty spot to do her business and then lets her off leash to run around some. Phoebe is so delightful, fun, and loving. She is a great addition to our family. Thanks” – The Huston Family (Carol and Doug).

Phoebe was “Hazel” from Katie and Gunner’s 2018 Botanical Litter

January 2019 -“Hi Mary, we just wanted to wish you a happy New Year and thank you for doing such an amazing job with Yogi before coming home to us. He is turning out to be a great watch dog, yet very social and good with both kids and adults. He is not afraid of loud noises (like dogs we have owned in the past) which is a great relief when we need to go out and we don’t have to worry about him too much. He is very smart, has a great temperament and personality! He has a beautiful coat layering blonde and apricot colors and beautiful eyes with the longest eyelashes!!! I can’t recommend you as a breeder enough and have sent a few ppl your way! We are so thankful to have Yogi as a part of our family for years to come!! Thank you, Loren and Janay”

January 2019 – “Hana continues to charm everyone who meets her. She is such a silly, playful, energetic, and loving puppy. I am so grateful to you! We took Hana to Timberline about a month ago and she loved the snow. She loves walking and being outside which is great for us as we are outdoor enthusiasts. I will attach a few recent photos of our Hana-girl. Take care and Happy New Year,

Warmly, Brigitte”

December 2018Dear Mary, Some words about “Cashew,” (formerly “Cedar” from Katie’s Botanical Litter): Cashew is fully house trained and has only had a single accident inside our house since that first morning and has continued to sleep the whole night through. He never barks and is a joy to be around, comes readily when called by name, and spends his days romping around our farm together with six kittens. He and the cats often take naps together during the day. The puppy loves to play with children and can handle a fairly significant amount of roughhousing. Cashew is quiet and has never had an issue being in a crate.”  – Jon Brevik













December 2018 – “Mary just wanted to send you an update on Parker, she is the delight of our life, she got spayed a week ago, and is doing great! She’s very personable, love her to death! She’s quite a character!” – L McGaw

Parker was formerly “Kit Kat” from Emery and Gunner’s 2018 litter.












November 2018“Wrigley is precious. He is well mannered, gentle and wonderful with the kids.  He loves to be outside and run and run with the neighbor dogs. What a welcome addition to our family! ” – Cinda Norton

Wrigley. Formerly “Mickey” from Ella and Basil’s Disney Litter.











November 2018Hi Mary! We’re happy to report Chewy’s crate training has been going great. It’s a joy to see his blossoming personality and growing confidence as he learns and has new experiences. He is a handsome dog with his soft wavy coat and huge paws. We love our big puppy! Thanks again for having given him a loving first start.” – Edie and Rich

Chewy was “Rome” from Lizzie’s Cities Litter.










November 2018 – “Hi Mary! It’s been a while since we updated you on Oakley (8 months old now!), just wanted to let you know he’s still the BEST 🙂 My kids adore him – he’s so playful (loves fetch), is a great snuggler (even lets them lay on him), and is always there to listen to them. He walks with us to and from school almost every day.  The kids at school know him, he is so well-behaved when they flock around him and want to pet him. Everywhere we go people comment on how cute he is and his sweet personality. We are thankful for him and so glad he’s in our family.” – Kerr Family












November 2018“Phoebe is now 12 weeks old, and we have had her for four weeks. She is so smart that we are training her in a number of things. Of course, it helps that she will do just about anything for a snippet of cheese as a reward. Our next step will be fetch and drop it. She is totally potty trained and comes to Doug, sits in front of him, and goes into stare-down mode as her signal to him that she needs to go out. We have bought a set of potty bells, and that is our next step in the signaling to go outside. She hasn’t had an accident in the house since that first week, but we are diligent to take her out at least once per hour as well as at her signals.
Phoebe is totally unafraid of any noises we have come across. We even had our carpets shampooed by a professional, and he had some pretty noisy and odd-shaped equipment and that didn’t even phase her one bit. She loves company and is totally delightful when we have friends over. I notice some traits in Phoebe that have been fun to observe. When she is walking around in general, she keeps her nose to the ground checking things out. When I throw a treat for her, she watches the throw and plugs in the rest of the arc to start looking for where it landed. She’ll then do a grid search for it. What is really funny is she keeps her nose down while she is looking for something, but when she has something that is contraband (like a pine cone or something) she struts and prances with her head held up high as she moves through the house, trying to sneak the pinecone back to her den (the living room). It is hilarious when she thinks she is getting away with something. Such a fun, lovable puppy!” – Carol Huston

Phoebe. Formerly “Hazel” from Katie’s botanical litter.











October 2018 –Hana is doing very well with potty training- just a few accidents but mainly because we didn’t recognize her signal or didn’t take her out often enough. Hana is such a love! She fits so well into our family. It feels like she has always been with us.  She is smart, silly, confident, calm and loving. Everyone adores her and she gets lots of attention wherever we take her. You may be getting some calls from our neighbors and friends about your dogs! Hana and our cat even play with each other like two little pups. It is hilarious! Thank you so much for bringing so much joy into our lives! Hana is destined to be the #1 dog in our list of great dogs. Warmly, Brigitte”

October 2018 – “Lucy’s such a sweet girl- and well loved! She’s so wonderful! The groomer said she’s the most beautiful labradoodle she’s ever seen. She’s had a few accidents, but was human error! She loves her family, always close by. This is Lucy’s nightly position during homework time.” – Amber

Lucy is a standard size pup from Lizzie’s litter (AKA “Brooklyn”.)

October 2018 – “Sophie (formerly Cherry) is doing great.  She slept through the night (10 hours!) on her first night.  Went right into her crate and never heard a peep from her.  She sleeps well each night. There have only been a couple nights in the first week when I needed to take her out in the middle of the night.  Potty training is also going well…her several little accidents have been our fault, not hers. She is a sweet girl – has her calm times and her crazy puppy moments of course – we are working on the gentle mouth – those little teeth are so sharp! Thanks for connecting us!” – Sally and Mark Simmons

October 2018 –  “Phoebe is coming along well. She rarely has an accident in the house. Phoebe sleeps all night long which is totally a God-send. She loves people. She’s a happy dog and she struts when she walks, totally cute. She has learned how to sit, stand, lay down, roll over, stop, and touch, and we are working on those each day for short periods of time. Phoebe is real smart. This is my favorite picture of her.” – Carol Huston

Phoebe is a little over nine weeks old. Formerly, she was “Hazel” from Katie’s Botanical Litter.












October 2018 – “Mary, I have been wanting to email you updates on “Frasier” / Bentley but just never seem to get around to it. We love him so very much. He has been a wonderful dog. We start our training this week. He can already sit, shake, high five, an occasional roll over and usually responds to the stay command. He has been loose leash walking a little as well (in our back yard). Can’t wait to start being able to take him out for walks! Maybe you will see us walking around in the spring:) He is so good with the little kids around him and has a soft bite during this teething stage. I can’t say enough wonderful things about him. He is such a great addition to our family.”

Oliver, 9 weeks old, is from Katie and Gunner’s Botanical litter. Formerly known as “Aspen.”












October 2018“Hi Mary, I wanted to let you know how Tanner (Hickory) is doing after a week in his new home.  He is doing great.  We love his manding.  He’ll do it when someone catches his attention.  He’s also hearing lot’s of new sounds outside that turn his head for a second, then he goes back to do what he was doing.  We have a bench in our fenced front yard and he likes to lay next to my leg while I sit while using my hand as his pillow.  He went to his first puppy social on Saturday.  He was the youngest and new so they had him behind a pen to begin with. He wagged his tail as the other puppies came up to investigate so they let him out and he was off and running.  He was great with the the puppies and led the way on showing them how to run through the tunnel. Still working on the potty training. He thought the potty bells are a great toy so we had to put them up for now. He’s a real joy and we are so glad we have him in our lives.  I know you miss them and your home must feel a lot different now, but know they are loved and well cared for.” – Fred

October 2018“Hi Mary! I took Maple to the vet today and just wanted to share with you that everyone there commented on what a beautiful dog he is! He’s shaved down because we just like him better that way (seems to fit his personality better). The whole office staff and the people waiting all agreed that he was quite handsome and a well put together, good- proportioned dog. He also got compliments on being sweet and mostly obedient, especially for a 16 month-old boy. I have to say when I’ve met other doodle owners out and about, they are usually very impressed with how well behaved he is. He is on his best behavior out in public for the most part, but even at home he’s a good boy. My mom loves him so much I’ve almost got her convinced to contact you about getting a mini! I might have to get one if she won’t. Pictures of Maple enjoying himself on our trip to the coast last weekend.” – Tori


A shaved “Maple.” Makes for a super easy to maintain Doodle! Maple came from Emery and Basil’s 2017 litter.











September 2018“Hi Mary! Murphy (“Bear” from Roo’s litter) is doing great!  He’s amazing on walks, rarely pulls on the leash and never barks, even when a dog we pass barks at us.  Everyone comments on how calm he is and his beautiful coloring. Here he is with his favorite toy. He’s such a great dog and we’re so happy to have him in our family. Thanks so much!” – Shellie

Murphy is formerly “Bear” from Roo and Basil’s summer 2018 litter.














August 2018 – “Thruxton has brought us so much joy in the 7 months we’ve had him! We were so amazed with how easily he adapted to his new home and with all the training he had prior. Mary does a wonderful job making sure the puppies have a good foundation and are confident before going home with their new owners. The work she does makes our job as puppy parents so much easier! We recommend Mary and Valley Vineyard Labradoodles to others every chance we get and have even been able to meet some half and full siblings along the way!!” – Kiersten W.

Thruxton, now 7 mos old.








August 2018“I love my labradoodle MinnieMae from Valley Vinyards. She is mellow, confident, obedient, loving, the best dog ever. Thanks for giving her such a great start at life. She is thriving here in Seattle!” – Susi Frost

Minnie Mae came from Riley and Basil’s 2017 Noodle Litter.












August 2018 – “Dear Mary, The day you phoned us to choose our puppy (Rome) from the last two puppies of his litter, you said somehow everyone ends up with the puppy they wanted. So true! He was our first choice from the day we visited the pups at 5 weeks old and we were over the moon when we got to bring him home. What a blessing that we opened ourselves to this little guy and he nestled into our hearts! We named him Chewy after the candy bar Charleston Chew, and he is so sweet. He wags his cute tail when he greets us so lovingly. Every day, since the beginning, he communicates his needs to us, comes when called, sits for treats and feeding, gives his distinct happy-howl-bark when excited, and rings the bell to go outside (no accidents inside so far!). Bless his heart for getting bopped on the head for the hundredth time by our cat, who for years played the cat-dog chase game but can no longer convince our older dog to partake in the “fun”. Our 8-year-old rescue shepherd mix and Chewy have become good doggy friends. Chewy is 14 weeks and really loves to wrestle with the older dog but also enjoys his quiet times being brushed or cuddled. He missed his littermates terribly the first few nights home and it took some patience and love to get him adjusted to being alone in his x-pen. We’re still working on the crate, but so far he likes to nap in it with the door open. Chewy is the perfect mix of calm, confident and attuned to us, others and his environment – he’s so smart! We are enormously grateful that you and your family gave him the best start from birth; we believe your work makes such a difference. Thank you so much!” – Rich and Edie

August 2018 – “Hi Mary, I hope all is well with you. We adopted Chardonnay (from Piper and Flash’s 2018 litter). We call her Penny Lane now because of her beautiful coat color.  I wanted to tell you what a joy she is – such a wonderful personality, so loving and good natured, so happy all the time.  She has a voracious appetite and is growing like crazy =D.  It’s hard to get good pictures of her because she’s usually on the move.  But I’ll try to send you some soon. Mary, thanks again for bringing these wonderful little dogs into the world, for giving them the very best care in those first few months, and for bringing them into our homes!” – Wylielea


August 2018 – “Hi Mary… I just wanted to tell you that this is the best puppy. I cannot tell you how happy I am. I will tell everyone what a wonderful person and great breeder you are. This has been an excellent experience. She has not made potty in the house at all. We had a great first night, only up one time in the night to go potty and that was it. She has caught on to ringing the bell to go potty outside already. Thank you again for a beautiful new friend for me. I really needed her. Her name should be Shadow…she follows me EVERYWHERE.

August 2018 –  (Three day report on “Tootsie Roll,” now “Gracie) – “Gracie is so smart! She is sleeping through the night and already going to the door to do her business outside. She sits and comes when called.  We are so impressed with her and love her so much. Winnie is adjusting. Everything belongs to her, of coarse, and she doesn’t know her own size. She just wants to play but the pup is still so little that we keep a close eye on them.  Each day Winnie is improving and soon they will be best friends, I’m sure of it.”

July 2018 –Hi Mary! I can’t say enough good things about Stanley. He is so calm and sweet and smart.Trainer reports excellent progress on house training, staying calm in the pen and exploring with confidence. He went to my vet for the first time Friday, he was a champ and they were amazed at how calm and brave he is , as well as handsome. He responds quickly just to body language and me holding him at arms length on the leash–he will think over his choices and sit. He’s done great at the Ahimsa puppy play classes, and we start puppy kindergarten next week. The Blue Angels are doing flyovers with fighter jets for Seafair, it’s very loud but he’s unfazed. He’s so confident that I’m not noticing any fear response so far. He’s a star in the neighborhood and many friends have come over to meet him. He’s calm even when he sees the rabbits and has often settled down with a chew stick to relax. It is amazing how he will go get a chew and settle down on his own at such a young age.  I asked the vet about his energy level, she thinks he’s growing so fast he needs extra sleep, and she said because his whole litter is calm, that’s nothing to be concerned about. I feel very lucky to have found him and am telling everyone about the science-based desensitization program you follow with your pups.”  – Susanna Clark

Stanley takes it slow and likes to pause in the shade. He is “London” from Lizzie’s 2018 litter. Stanely is being trained as a service dog in Seattle.















July 2018 – “Hi Mary,  I picked up Tuukka Friday (and this is only Wednesday). I was concerned about driving home alone with him in congested traffic. One hour and 45 minutes later we were home without even a whimper out of him – no car sickness, no potty incidents, just looking around at the new world. It was tempting to tuck him in bed with me at night but we did the crate thing and it was hard to hear him upset,  but it only lasted briefly and now he’s been staying in his crate all night without a peep. By Sunday he started to go to the door for potty time. Our cue is “outside”  so all the way over to potty central I keep talking about “outside” and about 15 – 30 seconds later he goes, and I tell him he’s wonderful and sometimes he gets a treat.  This even worked when we visited a friend 25 miles away!  He also sits for treats and sits for his food. Last night we started working with the doorbell. My goal is for him to hear the doorbell and have him go sit at the entry. I appreciate the hard work you invested in him daily, I’ve only got him as a new baby,  if I multiply that by 7 that doesn’t leave very much time for anything else. I’m working at building on your excellent foundation to have one of those companions who is welcome by most because of his demeanor and you got us off to a very good start on that. Thank you!” –  Corrin












July 2018 – “Hi Mary, I wanted to thank you for the effort you put in to your pups! Murphy (Bear) did great last night, just relaxing on the deck with us. The fireworks didn’t bother him at all. He is such a mellow puppy! He has bursts of energy then just flops on the floor. We love having him in our family.” –  Shellie

July 2018– “Good Morning Mary, Paulina is doing great. She’s just the best dog. So affectionate, so friendly and silly and everyone she meets just loves her (and she loves them)! She’s developed one peculiar tendency which we are determined to get on video.  When she gets concerned about someone, like a delivery person, or some stranger that just kind of concerns her for some reason, she stands up and walks around on her hind legs for a long time -like 30 seconds and she gets super focused.  She’s never mean (though she will bark) She just prefers to be on her hind legs – maybe to make herself appear larger?? I don’t know but it’s pretty hysterical. She’s in great health. Just thought I’d include a few pictures of our recent vacation at Stinson Beach with Lena. She is an ocean lover.” – Valerie

Paulina is a standard size from our litter from Winnie and Basil.












June 2018 – “Gretel is such a joyful addition to our family! She adjusted quickly and easily to our other dog Hazel, it was like we had already had her for some time.  Now it’s hard to imagine life without her! She is sharp as a tack and learns very quickly. Because she was already potty trained when she came home, she learned extra fast to ring a bell to go outside and potty. She sits sweetly for attention, and it doesn’t take long for her to roll over for belly rubs. We love her so very much, and are so thankful for the time and effort that is put into preparing a Valley Vineyard puppy for it’s forever family.”  –Michael & Jennifer

We are about to start our second round of puppy training courses, and she has been very easy to train – in the last course, she was quite the star and the trainer loved her and was always using her as the example. She is an amazing dog – she is so smart, so social and just unbelievably loving. We feel certain that this is in great part due to you, and how carefully you welcome your puppies into their new world, and nurture them. So, we’ve been thinking we would like to give her a friend and naturally, you’re the only person we want to go to. . . . .”   – Valerie Northrop

May 2018 – “Hi Mary:) Just wanted to check in and let you know how Oakley is doing. He is such a good boy! We feel like he’s the perfect combination of playfulness and mellowness. From his first night here, we have been impressed with how well he sleeps at night, goes into his plastic crate by Camden’s room with no issues and sleeps through the night. (He’s not a fan of his wire crate but we are still working on that.) He is learning to ring the bells to go out to potty and he knows to sit for us before he comes back inside. He has brought our family so much joy in the short time he has been here, I can’t tell you how many smiles and laughter he’s caused. Such a blessing to us all. Thank you for the time and care you put into his life, it all shows in his confidence and personality.” – The Kerrs (Here he is at almost 10 weeks)

May 2018“Dear Mary, I am sure you get so many emails all the time, so don’t feel like you need to respond, I just wanted to give you a little glimpse into how wonderful Anza is. First of all, she is SO SMART! I know careful breeding and all your hard work is to be commended for this. She is only 9 weeks old and already knows and responds to: come, sit, ring the bells, and go potty. Whenever we call her, she comes running, sits down, and looks at us for the next command (or a treat, which comes often in the form of food or lavish praise). She is a supreme snuggler. She loves to be held and cozies right up on anyone’s lap who happens to sit on the floor. When we lift her up to the couch, she would much rather be in a lap than by herself. She is perfect for our family and we are so grateful to you for raising such amazing pups. THANK YOU!” – Vanessa

“Mary, this is a testament to your temperaments and socializing. This is the middle of training, while all the other puppies were barking, walking around and trying to play. The boys just chilled. It is so obvious all the work you pour into them! And when it’s both of them together, it’s obvious that it was environment and not the individual puppy. Nothing phases them! It sure shows!”

February 18, 2018 – “Hi Mary, We’ve had a wonderful week with Noel! Her new name is Sammy. Sammy has been amazing! She just had an accident for the first time in the house because I was being lazy on a Saturday morning. She’s sleeping in a crate next to my bed happily. I take her out once at night to pee and she goes right back to sleep. She made it seven hours last night! This is my easiest baby by far! Her crate is her safe place and she brings all her toys in there to keep them “safe.” Sammy is already sitting on command and coming when she is called! Just amazing! What a great beginning. We just love her and she was worth the wait! I can’t wait to see her grow and develop. What a smart puppy she already is. Thank you for all your hard work to make this transition easy. I expected a much more sleep deprived and exhausting week. I got pure joy! We are all in love.” – Elizabeth Richardson

December 2017“Hi Mary,I thought I’d give you an update on Rowdy. He’s SO SO SWEET!!! We are absolutely in love with him. He’s pretty much potty trained now, the only recent accident (couple of weeks ago) was because I didn’t realize what he was trying to tell me, so my fault. He’s so affectionate and smart; he will cuddle up next to us on the couch and plop his head in my lap. He has calmed down a fair bit but still gets the “zoomies” where he’ll run crazy all over the living room. He loves hiking in the woods on the trails we have nearby and is excellent off leash. He loves other dogs and is very well socialized. He is a beautiful, really good boy. He is truly so handsome, people comment all the time on his gorgeous face and his apricot coat. He sleeps up on our bed at night (after a goodnight play with our 13 yr old) and once he settles, we don’t even know he’s there. Thank you, thank you for the wonderful job you did with him in giving him such a good start to life!”

I know that sounds super sappy so I’ll stop before I go on for days. He’s darling with little children and loves being pet by anyone he sees. He loves the beach and he’s a perfect angel in the car. The vet and groomer, not to mention everyone on the streets, are always in awe of his shiny black coat. He gets compliments everywhere we go. I’ve had many strangers offer to buy him and were actually serious (as if!!) and even more ask me who his breeders were. Of course I always say ‘Valley Vineyard Labradoodles in Sherwood Oregon! Look them up!’ One lady on our last trip to Idaho expressed that he was the most “magnificent creature” she’d ever seen. We got a good kick out of that. But it’s true, he is magnificent and the best thing that’s ever come into my life. Thank you thank you thank you! God bless you!” – Natalie R.

Hi Mary- Just wanted to give you an update on our one month with Cash. He’s amazing. Here are some of the things I’m so impressed with:

-He can heel, sit, lay, roll over, give, leave, spin, walk, come and release after just 2 puppy K classes
-he is so lovable and affectionate and is great with children, other dogs and we’ve even had random dog walkers coming
-his potty training has been amazing. One accident, happened because I didn’t realize he’s able to go down the basement stairs yet. He’s been left for 4 hours by mistake and did fine and also sleeps through the night  10 or 10:30- 5-5:45 everyday.
– he loves baths, playing, running, walking, swimming and hiking- super active and likes to show off his activity level
Thank you again so much! He has been such a wonderful addition to our family, I never imagined I could love an animal so much.”

She adapts very easily to new surroundings, she quickly found her favorite spot at the cottage and in the motorhome and settles there with her chew toy when she needs a break. She loves her cozy crate and goes right in for naps and at night she sleeps in it for about 5-6 hours until she makes a little noise to tell me she needs to go potty. We go out, she does her business and goes right back to sleep. Has only had a few accidents in the house, but I take the blame for not taking her out sooner. She comes when I call her and sits her little bottom down and looks up at me. I saw your video on Facebook where you were saying “puppy come!” So I am using the same happy inflection and saying “Minnie come!” And she comes running to me. Thank you for bringing this into my life, I love her and we have definitely bonded, she follows me everywhere.I am blessed to have her and so grateful to you!” – Susi

Some yelping for about five minutes the first night we put him to bed in his crate, then quieted down and went to sleep.

He’s smart and attentive just like you said! Excited to teach him more. He’s very attached to D.J., which D.J. is loving.

We now have Cash (Cashew) in our home since Wednesday and he  has been such a joy. People really scare ya about the puppy days but I’m astonished at how amazing he’s doing. NO POTTY ACCIDENTS WHATSOEVER, have left Cash for 3 hours and while the first two nights were hard and long, last night he slept through the night – we can’t believe it!!!  I can’t say enough about Mary’s breeding program from her professionalism, knowledge, experience and genuine love for these dogs. The emotional conditioning is apparent and HUGE and Cash is the most lovable, mellow, obedient puppy we’ve ever met. He sits, lays, crates and potties on command. I should mention, we haven’t used the litter box. Thank you Mary for our sweet love, Cash he’s becoming fast friends with his big sister, Lucy and his cat buddies, Billy and Tang.” – The Rasmussens

August 2017 – His new “mama” wrote us after their first day with Tortellini,” 8 weeks old, from Riley and Basil’s litter –

“Benji let out two tiny tiny yelps when we took off and was quiet  the rest of a 7 hour trip.  I sat in back with him and he bonded to me, loved to be cuddled.  Only time he yelped was when I got out to run quickly to the bathroom. He thought I had left him lol   He did cry all night but that’s the way it goes .   Today he has been an angel.   Did poo poo outside as well as pee pee. Can even see any signs of him using litter box.   He has played ball with my granddaughter and returns it promptly. So smart! and such a good boy.  I want to thank you very much for such a good puppy.   You are such a wonderful breeder. I would recommend you to anyone!” –  Barbara

“I could not be happier with Benji (Tortellini from Riley). He is smart loving and loyal. He knows “come” , “sit,” “down,” and we are working on “off” as well as doing well with lease training , And I’ve only had him one week! I could not be happier with him!” – Barbara

Isabel happy with her forever family. 🙂

April 2017 – Regarding Isabel…… “She’s the most adorable little puppy and we love her like crazy! She has the best temperament and is so sweet and gentle. I cannot say enough good things about her. She is also super smart and a big mush! We are so lucky to have such a wonderful little girl! Again thank you. I know a lot of her great traits definitely started with being bred by a great and caring breeder. I can’t remember our lives before Isabel and I couldn’t ever imagine our lives without her! Here’s a couple more pictures of her because she’s so cute lol!”

April 2017“”Hi Mary it’s Rocco. Rachel and I bought Prince and Celine back in November just in case you don’t remember. I just wanted to thank you again for being such a great breeder. Isabel and Archimedes are amazing puppies. We couldn’t have asked for better puppies. Rachels sister has Archimedes and we get Isabel and him together as often as we could and they absolutely love each other and play like crazy. I just wanted to write you again to thank you and I figured I would send some pictures so you could see how big they got. They are both doing great. We have them both in puppy class and we’re socializing them as much as we could. Again, they are so good. Thanks again!” – Rocco, NYC

He is a big love-bug. He’s polite at the door and doesn’t jump on people. He’s a 10!  He’s such a great dog. We love him to pieces!” – Carrie Roshak

Bennet, 8 weeks old, from Emery and Basil’s litter.

February 7, 2017 – Hi Mary – We just wanted to let you know that Bennet is doing so well! He rode all the way home in the car (3 hours) without a peep – calm, curious, happy to get out and explore when we stopped. His first night he whined for a total of 10 seconds when he got in the crate, and when we tapped the crate to say no, he went right to sleep. He slept all night without an accident, woke up and quietly waited for us to get up, and then went potty outside. We couldn’t believe it!  It’s clear that you love each of your dogs, and that you give them the best start possible. Thank you for our new family member. 🙂 I cannot thank you enough for giving us such an incredibly calm, wonderful, socialized puppy and with such a solid start potty training. As I said before, I feel like we won the lottery finding you as a breeder, and I have a feeling all the new families from this litter are as happy as we are.

Henry as a young pup in his new home. Now almost grown!

2016 – “Hello, I’m writing to tell you how much we all love Henry. He is all that we hoped for in a family dog and more. He hasn’t met a person he doesn’t love and he gets along well with other dogs too. He is very smart. I’ve been taking him to dog training classes and he is so quick to learn. He is most definitely tops in his class. Henry has added so much happiness to our home.  He rarely barks, he is sweet and gentle and loving and obedient (especially if you have a treat to give him). He doesn’t chew on anything other than his toys. My son loves Henry so much he say’s “dogs are Gods gift to us”. “They are so sweet and loving and adorable.”  My daughter adores Henry too. She seeks him out every chance she gets and finds him a nice reprieve from school work and the stress that goes along with being 13. My husband and I also love him so much. My husband works from home and is able to spend time with him during the day.  Henry gives Joe a nice break from the stress of his job. I’m a stay at home mom and am able to give him lots of exercise and love as well. He goes everywhere he can with us.  He quietly waits for me to get up in the morning.  Once he is fed he goes to the kids bedrooms and gently wakes them with the bump of his nose. He loves going with us to the bus stop where he has lots of kids and other dogs to play with. My husband picks up my daughter from school every day and brings Henry along. He loves the car ride and seeing the kids at school. He is THE BEST DOG. Having Henry has been so much easier than I ever though it would be to get a puppy. Thanks for doing such a great job with him. We love him with all our hearts.

Love, Joe, Sherrie, Emma, Jake and Henry”

Truly, she is remarkable and I love her like crazy! I fell in love with her mom Molly, and I had hoped I would have one like her.

Haro with new family“Hard to believe Haro has been with us for over 6 months. He is the joy of our life. He is funny, playful, full of life. Quite furry and sits like an ancient proud prince as he waits for us to return throughout our day. He is Eno’s watchful guard dog…. And snuggles him endlessly. He loves hugs!!!! and dances with us as his formal greeting.  We loves his coat… Shiny and thick… His tail wags from excitement.  Sleeps throughout night and rises for a new day with kind affection.
We are ever so grateful to have found you via email it was love at first sight to see Haro and now we are settled in to our sweet abode together with joy in our hearts.”
Thank you kindly,

Rue, all grown up.

“We are so fortunate to have found VVL and luckily Rue was still available when we did. Rue is as smart as they get; she adjusted to her new home instantly, is very obedient and a quick learner. She loves to follow us around and nap near or on our feet : ) She was constantly praised by the trainer as being one of the best in class. A few of our friends are scared of dogs but Rue quickly influenced them otherwise. In the short time that she’s been with us,Rue has had a positive impact on us and our loved ones, she is amazing! Thanks VVL. If you’re looking to add an addition to the family then Valley Vineyard Labradoodles is the best choice you can make.” – Lana & Brian, California (Purchased one of Haley’s 2013 mini puppies)

He has his places to go sleep and Dan couldn’t find him. He doesn’t bark.  The Vet was so impressed with him. You did a great job getting him started.

Mini and Standard Australian Labradoodle puppies like this one available soon in Oregon.

Standard caramel labradoodle puppy from Molly’s 2013 litter.

Boomer quickly learned his name, imprinted us as his guardians and would always follow us around. He trained easily, wasn’t afraid of vacuums, car rides, the vet and more. Within a few weeks he had earned the right to full freedom of the house, though he would always follow us and nap at our feet. He loves walks, playing in parks and meeting people. We’ve become quite popular in our neighborhood, with people stopping us to pet Boomer, ask how he’s been doing, and where we had gotten him. We take him to training classes and puppy parties to properly socialize him, and he is constantly noted as one of the star performers, extremely obedient and a quick learner. Boomer has become an essential part of our family now, and positively influenced many people around him. My fiance and myself usually don’t have much luck in general, but we really think we hit the jackpot when it came to Boomer, he’s everything and more that we could ever want in a companion, and we’ve only had him for a few months!” – John Wang, Washington. (Purchased one of Molly and Rossi’s 2013 puppies)
