Reputation for Excellence:

- We have over a decade of documentation and research to ensure we breed the best English Goldendoodles anywhere.
- We have years of stories from families of all walks of life, sharing their experiences in how their service or therapy companion has impacted their worlds!
Our Parent Dogs:
- Our English Teddy Bear Goldendoodles come from some of the nicest dogs in Europe and America.
- They have outstanding pedigrees and come from the most distinguished Champion bloodlines the world. We have a unique look and disposition that we are trying to achieve.
- Smeraglia English Teddy Bear Goldendoodles have a very distinctive look and can be easily recognized by their beautiful blocky heads and outstanding beauty.
- Aside from being exceptionally beautiful, our parent dogs have numerous health tests to ensure that our puppies have a lower incidence of health issues.
- All of our parent dogs and puppies begin their lives here at Smeraglia as family pets that are loved and socialized from birth.
Our "Super Puppy" Program:
- They are hand-raised and birthed in our nursery and then monitored 24/7.
- They are weighed daily and evaluated daily to ensure proper weight gain and development. We are up-to-date with all age appropriate vaccinations and medications.
- We have vets that come to our nursery regularly to oversee our puppies growth and development.
- We provide our clients with a 2-year health guarantee against genetic health defects.
- We have a one-of-a-kind "SUPER PUPPY" program that begins at birth and continues for 16 weeks and beyond depending on the needs of our adoptive families.
- Our English Teddy Bear Goldendoodle puppies are NEVER left alone. They are loved, cared for, and interacted with around the clock, 24/7.
- We are extremely careful with all of the critical stages of puppy development, and we do not subject our puppies to any adverse situations during their critical imprint periods.
- We have a unique weaning program that focuses on confidence, and we meet each puppy where they are individual. Just because a puppy is a certain age does not mean that he or she is ready to be weaned.
- We access each puppy and wean them when he or she is developmentally ready.
- Once the puppies are weaned, we continue our unique "SUPER PUPPY" Socialization Program.
- Our goal is to introduce each puppy to 100 different sights and sounds from approximately six weeks of age until eight weeks of age. This will reduce the amount of fear that a puppy has due to lack of socialization. These puppies will be more socialized and will become happier, more confident puppies. This is critical for puppies that will go on to be Service or Therapy Dogs and family pets.
- We have loving and dedicated nursery nannies that work with each puppy individually to help them with any issues that they may have. Goldendoodles are very sensitive puppies, and they are people pleasers. They need lots of positive reinforcement.
We Know Our Puppies:
- We spend time each day with every puppy to ensure they are properly socialized and have good emotional health. We can honestly say, WE KNOW OUR PUPPIES.
- We also introduce all of our puppies to basic manners, obedience, and crate training from 6 to 8 weeks of age.
- We have an incredible media team, and we take beautiful professional pictures of our puppies at 2, 4, and 6 weeks of age. We also make professional videos of each litter at 6-7 weeks of age. We want our clients to get to know our puppies as well as they can, and we like to share them because we are so proud of our babies.
- We also provide Pawtography services for additional photos and videos upon request.
- We do a personality evaluation on every puppy at seven weeks of age. This allows us to match each puppy with the family who is the best suited for them. Our puppies are stunning and exceptionally beautiful (that is obvious!), but here at Smeraglia, TEMPERAMENT rules!!
- We match our puppies based on our clients 1st and 2nd favorite - which is picked from their 6-week pictures and videos - BUT temperament rules. We ultimately will match our client with the puppy who is best suited for them based on personality. If you choose a puppy based on looks and it's NOT a good personality match, that will be very short-lived.
- We have highly certified Doodle Prep School trainers that exclusively train our Teddy Bear Goldendoodles before they come home. We have a variety of programs to meet the various needs of our clients. We have more experience training Goldendoodles than anyone in the country.
- As a breeder, I am dedicated to raising and training the best English Teddy Bear Goldendoodles in the world. And we believe that we are changing the world - one puppy at a time! I hold myself to a high standard. Therefore, I hold all of my adoptive families to the same standard. I have a highly trained and dedicated team that works alongside me. They help me screen clients to find the perfect families for our puppies. We have invested so much into the lives of our puppies from before they are born until the time they go to their forever families. We will only allow our puppies to go to loving families that are committed to their puppy for their life.
- Our goal is for every single client to enjoy the puppy adoption process which matches them with the right companion for their family and needs. We are about EXCELLENCE in everything that we do. We want our clients to experience the LOVE that we have here ....Our Mission Statement at Smeraglia is: Love God. Love People. Love Dogs.
