I have been wanting a puppy for quite a while, having been a cat owner all my life. My neighbor recommended Premier Pups. I am so happy to have found them. First they have great follow up and called every week for three weeks to check in to see how Daisy was doing, how I was doing and if I had any questions. Now to Daisy! She is the sweetest little knucklehead with whom I I am so lucky to share my life! Every day she makes me laugh and it so difficult not to spoil her. She is not a destructive puppy although she has gotten her mouth on paper from time to time and brings new meaning to the term scissor teeth! If you are on the fence, jump off, these puppies will add so much to your life!
Kash (formally Baron), is a beautiful mini golden-doodle puppy that has been home with us for 1 week. He is the most lovable, playful and happy puppy. Adopting him through premier pups was seamless from the start, the entire team of staff are extremely tentative and helpful. I would recommend premier pups to anyone looking to adopt a puppy!!! We love Kash and cannot imagine life without him.
Say Hello to Paxton, the amazing mini Goldendoodle. Paxton is assimilating quite well in his new environment and doesn't seem to mind the nice sunny weather of Miami FL! A special thanks to Premier Pups for ensuring our adoption of Pax (and his subsequent travel to Miami) was as smooth as possible. We've adopted wonderful pets before but this a first, in terms of travel to his new home. Premier Pups was so patient, knowledgeable and understanding with the many questions we had along the way. We are so excited to have such a new love in our life! Ok, Pax is stating that he'd like to go practice some more of that 'potty training' stuff!
Our daughter begged for a puppy for months before her eighth birthday. She researched online and read books to find out everything she could about caring for a puppy and which breed was best to have for people with dog allergies. Then I found Premier Pups, we looked at the breeds available and decided on a mini goldendoodle. We made an appointment to visit Premier Pups the same day we called. We were impressed with the facility, the staff and the puppies! We visited with three different adorable mini goldendoodle puppies and chose the one we wanted to adopt. The staff was friendly, caring and helpful. It was a Great Experience!
I was honestly so scared of ordering a puppy offline that would have to be shipped; however, I could not have asked for a better experience! Premier Pups called and answered every questioned. When Ellie (originally Hope) arrived, she came with everything that I needed and multiple care tips! They have called multiple times to make sure she is adjusting! I most definitely reccommed buying from Premier Pups!
I got Shiloh 10 months ago from Premier Pups, and we just celebrated his 1st birthday. Shiloh is the happiest, friendliest, silliest, most lovable dog I could ever imagine. He learned (or either knew) how to “sit” the first day I had him! Premier Pups drove him to me in Virginia from Ohio, and made the purchase process extremely easy. They even checked up on us a few days and weeks after he came home. If I were to get another dog, I would first look at Premier Pups. I could not imagine my life without Shiloh, and he has easily become a favorite among my friends and family.
Our sweet girl Saylor (formerly Gaga)! Premier pups made this the easiest and BEST puppy experience for us. They kept in touch the two weeks before she was ready and assured me she would be okay on her flight to Florida. When we picked her up from her flight she had everything with her she needed for her new family! We have only had her 5 days but she’s adjusted so well. Saylor LOVES playing outside and try’s to eat all the leaves. Definitely will use Premier pups again in the future :) Thank you guys!!
I am not the owner of this special pup. It was awarded to one of the participants in the 5th Annual C. Clyde Run, named in my honor. This was a charity event for Shepherd's Crossing, an ecumenical non-profit which assists poor people with rent and utility assistance. The event raised $30,000 (including in-kind donations) and attracted 300 participants. Premier Pups delivered Bear on October 28 and he won the hearts of those who saw him. In addition to donating the Mini Goldendoodle, Michael Schoeff, Premier Pups owner, made a substantial cash donation. Shepherd's Crossing has assisted hundreds of individuals with rent and/or utility payments. Premier Pups and Michael Schoeff play an important role in that support. The puppy arrived in excellent health and adapted to its new surroundings quickly. I can heartily recommend Premier Pups to anyone wanting a puppy.
Milo is such an amazing addition to our family. He is adorable and everyone loves him. He was very easy to potty train and he rings a bell when he needs to go out! He is 8 months old in the picture and weighs 20 pounds. He is perfect size. Premier pups was great and we were very pleased with our experience with them. I would highly recommend.
Premier Pups is definitely a 5 STAR! Finding Scarlett (now renamed Millie), was such a smooth process. The information, help and assistance they provide is unremarkable. The pickup from the airport was a breeze and the follow-up they still provide on day 7 is just AMAZING! THANK YOU Premier Pups with the exceptional service you provide on all levels. My family and I are so in love with her!!
