Referrals & Puppies in their new homes!

Here's a few of our puppies in their new homes & all grown up!
We love hearing from their new owners.



We are preferred breeders at - the largest and most informative web site for the Goldendoodle. The following letter was sent to Blue Sterling, who owns as a referral.
Blue, Good morning.
I would be happy to give a referral for Barbara. She is a really wonderful, caring person who takes time out to place the perfect dog with your family. When we went to pick out "Dempsey," not only were we looking for the perfect dog, but Barbara was looking for the perfect owners for her "babies." We went with the intention of finding a blonde goldendoodle and fell in absolute love with a black one. We brought him home for our children on Valentine's Day 2006.

The kennel was immaculate. The facility, both indoor and out, were perfect for the puppies as was her adult dogs. It is very spacious and exceptionally clean. When the puppies are born, Barbara holds each one of the puppies close to her face within minutes of birth. We went to see them at approximately 8 weeks of age. When Barbara would handle the puppies, they would immediately calm down when she held them and spoke to them. It was truly an amazing site. She truly loves these puppies and it is so evident in their temperaments.
Let me tell you a little about Dempsey. He is an amazing animal. He disposition is one that amazes everyone who meets him. He is so calm and lovable. He was fully housebroken in less than 2 weeks. He loves to be around us. We have 3 children ages 3, 6, and 7. He loves the children and wants nothing more than to be where we are. He was neutered at 5 months and did perfect. The Vet and all his staff just adore him and have told us what a wonderful pet we have. When he goes in for his well-visits, he actually "smiles" at the staff, if you can believe that! I can't begin to tell you how happy we are with Dempsey!
Personally, I would never have any other breed and I would only use Barleycroft Kennels for any new puppy we bought! I'd refer Barbara over and over again to anyone interested in a Goldendoodle puppy.
Thanks, Kim

Good Afternoon,
I just wanted to send you this picture of "Rylee". Rylee came from the June 25th litter of Goldendoodles. I am pretty sure you said that she was the smallest one of the litter. She is about 52lbs now and I tell everyone she is part Golden Retriever part Poodle and part pig....she actually lays down to eat. She has done this since we brought her home. She has really turned out to be a sweet smart dog. She has a big sister "Lady" and they are so much fun to watch.
Thank you so much for raising such great dogs.
Happy Holidays,

Diane & Steve


Sailor was in a children's patriotic parade today and they won first place! Best behaved dog there! She is a delight and we are having so much fun with her!


Barbara, here is a current picture of Trixie. At 11 months she weighs 52 pounds. I can't tell you how wonderful she is.

Dear Clardy family,

We adopted Libby a year ago and have been meaning to send pictures for quite some time. We hope you enjoy them.

She is a great dog! She is very laid back, very social, great with kids, hardly barks. We get so many compliments on how beautiful she is.

We "may" be interested in a second puppy.

We just wanted to say hello and let you know how Karma and Barkley are doing. We got them from you in Dec, and in fact their one year birthday is coming up on 10/25! I wanted to send you some photos and let you know that we just love them and are so happy. They really are very different, night and day to be honest. Karma is absolutely crazy, spunky, independent and brilliant! Barkley, the boy, is the most loyal, loving, good listening dog we have ever had. They make our lives so much fun and they always keep us on our toes. We had one question. . . do you keep track of what order the pups are born in? We were wondering who was born first, Karma or Barkley? They have grown quite a bit since they saw you last. THank you so much. We recommend you to everyone we know who is interested in goldendoodles and we often check your website just for fun. Barkley is always in the blue bandana and Karma is in purple or pink.

Hi Barbara,
We love Coconut! She has turned out to be the most well-behaved, cutest dog. She fits into our family perfectly. Our two boys absolutely adore her. We can’t wait to see her in our pool. We’ve met two other Golden Doodles from Barleycroft (not sure if they are half brothers or not) which are also wonderful dogs. A lot of people have asked where we got her and I’ve given them your name. If you ever need a reference in our area feel free to give us a call. Attached is a copy of her spay certificate and a picture of her at 6 months.

Have a great summer!
Mark and Karen

Good Morning Barbara,
I wanted to give you an update about Dempsey. We brought him home on Feb 14th this year and gave him to our children for Valentine's Day! They absolutely loved him!!!! He is the best dog in the world! His temperament is fantastic, he is so calm and mellow and just loves to be around us. You had a strong feeling that he would be the perfect match for our family and you were completely, 100% correct!!! He is wonderful! We had him neutered on April 19th. He did fine and the Dr. and Nurses just adore him! He weighs 40 lbs already and he is only 5 months!
He goes running/walking about 5 miles, 4 times per week! He is in great shape and really enjoys playing outside with the kids too! We love Dempsey and thank you so much for your help in choosing him for us!!! I am attaching a picture of him for you.

Hi Mrs. Clardy,
My ANYA just had her first birthday. What a beautiful, sweet dog she is...attentive, (learning to be) obedient...we're going to take Basic Training II this summer... I've thought of Barleycroft often and just wanted to thank you..a year later.

Suzi and ANYA

Dear Barb,

Samantha has been with us just over a week and she’s a true joy! Her trip home to Hopewell Jct., NY was long
with lots of thunderstorms and she calmly sat and slept between my 2 boys the whole way.

She’s very bright and is housebreaking easily. She sleeps well at night and has all the wonderful qualities we could only hope for…gentle, calm, smart, fun and very adaptable. Her checkup at the vet went smoothly…she had gained 8 oz. since her arrival.
We’re very happy! Thank you!

Thank you so much for breeding such wonderful puppies. We picked up Griffin on July 25, 2006. He is in his new home just a week now and is a love. He has a very mellow way about him,. but is also very playful. He was the very shy puppy in the litter, but once he settled in the real puppy came out in him. He sleeps through the night and is very easy to house train as he has had only two accidents in one week. Steven and I could not be more pleased as is our Vet. We are recommending your kennel to our friends who have fallen in love with Griffin. Will send pictures soon.

I don’t know if you remember me but I bought a black Goldendoodle puppy from you last year, right before Thanksgiving. My name is Melissa and I came with my mother to pick the pup up. Anyway, he will be a year old in a few weeks and I thought you would enjoy some pictures of him. He is absolutely gorgeous and he’s the best dog I’ve ever owned!! He is so mellow, quiet, and obedient, not to mention 80lbs of pure affection!! I live in Manhattan and people stop me every day to admire him. I highly recommend you as a breeder and have given out your number on several occasions. Enjoy the pictures of Shea!


Barbara -
Just a quick hello and greetings from New York. Elvis is almost 4 1/2 months old now and doing great - he's loving, kind, easygoing and cuddly. Actually, he's one of the most laid-back dogs I've ever met! He loves to play with other dogs, and he enjoys his walks with me and the kids. His favorite is picking the kids up from school - he gets lots of attention! One of his passions is crunching ice cubes - every time he hears the ice maker in our fridge churn, he comes running. He sits and lays down, knows the names of his toys and is pretty much house trained. His vet is happy with him as well, he's just got his lyme shots and didn't even flinch. We're about to train him on the invisible fence, and I think that will make both him and us very happy! Everyone who meets him comments on his good looks, and I've passed along the name of your kennel to several people already. Thanks so much for giving us this great animal - we love him!
Best to you and yours

Hi Barbara,
It's been awhile since I've given you an update on Max. He's doing very well. He's just about at 8 months, and he's probably about 55lbs. I meant to write to you when he was fixed in August, but time goes by so fast!

Anyway, he's really such a happy guy. We're having a lot of fun, and he's very popular wherever we go. We were just at the beach last Sunday and nearly everyone we walked by wanted to know what kind of breed he was.
He's made lots of dog friends in the neighborhood, and he gets along with everyone, every dog, every child etc. Hope all is going well.

Just wanted to drop a quick note...but with a big thanks for providing us with such a wonderful puppy!! We've named him Satch, and he has been a dream! NOBODY can get over how calm and sweet he is when held and I truly think you should market your handling skills with your's so obvious that you cared for these puppies in a loving way. Also- no one can get over how adorable he is...

Satch has adjusted amazingly well with us. I cleared my schedule this week so I've had an intense bonding experience with him and it's paying off. He seems secure and happy. He's eating well and had a very good vet visit...the vet proclaimed him a very healthy puppy.

Thank you again...we are so in love with Satch...
Karen & Jim

I just had to write and thank you for our precious new addition. She had her first vet appointment today and she had about 7 staff members around her astounded that she already knows how to sit and give her paw. They said she is in great health and she has a heck of a personality. She is very smart and is adjusting very well to the crate - even the first night....and we only had to get up once last night to let her out.

I cannot tell you how thrilled we are and I wanted to thank you for the work you are doing - its certainly pays off.
Best Regards,

Hi there and Merry Christmas!
We just wanted to let you know that Haley is doing wonderfully! She is eating and drinking well and loves to play and sleep. She has been among many people in the last two days and is taking it all in stride. She loves her crate and has slept all night without crying for us since the day we brought her home. Potty training is going
well too--only two accidents. Thanks so much again. You can tell how much care you take of your animals. She is certainly bringing us a lot of happiness!

Hi Barbara,
Thought you might like to see a picture of your pups. I love them!!! They are great. The groomer tells me they are the best dogs she has ever had. Daisy is 7 months/43 pounds in the picture and Heidi is 4 months/31 pounds. Abby (the Frank's dog) is a healthy 80 pounds at almost a year old. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas. Happy and Healthy New Year to all.

Hi Barbara! Happy New Year! Here's a pic of our boy, Asher. He is a wonderful pup and we love him so much! When I'm on the computer, he snuggles on my feet under the desk.
Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy 2007!


Hello Barbara,
I wanted to let you know we have the documents that Krystal was spade and I will send them off to you this week. I attached some newer photos of our "Doodlebops" :) Both Bentley and Krystal are doing great and they are such good friends. They really make us happy each day. Krystal adjusted very well to her new home with us and it is hard to believe but I think she is even a little tiny bit more spoiled that Bentley especially since she is a major momma's girl! We are excited for their first Christmas with us and I am impressed at how well they have been staying away from the Christmas tree. I hope you enjoy these pictures and again I will send you proof of her getting spade this week to you. Enjoy your holidays!

Hi Barbara-

I have given out your name so many times recently I thought I'd check in and send you a picture of the world's best dog. This is Barley; we got him from you in January of 2008. He is absolutely wonderful and we couldn't imagine life without him! He and my son are best pals and Barley is the happiest, most even tempered dog--and the best listener--I swear he understands what I'm saying!

A couple of times a week he spends the day in a yarn/knitting shop with me where he is known as the official shop greeter. I think he knows its his job because he is so excited to go to "work".  I can't tell you how many customers have remarked on what a gem of a dog he is; some call ahead to see what days he is in so they can visit with him!

As first time dog owners we couldn't have picked a better breed or breeder.  Many thanks for the great start in life you have given our Barley and I'm sure many others like him. If you ever need a NJ reference we'd be happy to provide it!

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to write but I wanted to send a few pictures of Tucker to you.  He is now almost 8 months old (April 29th) and he is just the sweetest most fun dog to be around.  He has an amazing temperment and just loves to be around people and dogs at all times.  He lives in NYC but has a beach house that he gets to run free at on the weekends.  He swam for the first time two weeks ago in Cape Cod Bay and LOVED it!  He has brought such joy to my life.  Thank you.
I hope all is well with you.

Hi Barbara -

It's been a while since I've emailed you, but I thought since Buckley just celebrated his 1st birthday, I'd send you some updated pictures. We have loved every minute of every day we've had Buckley! I can't imagine my life without him!

I hope you're doing well!
