We are planning four litters to be born around the beginning of July; two litters of F1 Goldendoodles, a litter of F1B Goldendoodles and a litter of Golden Retrievers. We are referring to our Golden Retriever litter - Mia's litter - as a "Legacy Litter" because Mia's heritage dates all the way back to the earliest days of Powderhill Goldens. We currently have five deposits on our Legacy Litter, which we expect to be ready to go home around Labor Day. So if you are in the market for a companion you'll remember for a lifetime, let us know. We also have eight deposits on our first F1 Goldendoodle litter (Miley), none as of yet on our second F1 Goldendoodle litter (DeeDee) and six deposits on our F1B Goldendoodle litter (Missy) so there is still room for more. Call or email us with your desires.
Our Order & Selection Process
We have used the current process for selecting a puppy for the last several years and our clients have been very satisfied with the results. Here this the puppy selection process.Since most of our litters have been sold out before the puppies are born, it is a good idea to reserve your puppy as far in advance as possible.
Reserving a puppy is as simple as sending a deposit check for $250.00. Make out the check to "Rufo PHG" and send it to our kennel at 41 Gates Farm Road in Lebanon, CT 06249. Please include your name, address, phone and email details along with the name of the Mother of litter you would like a puppy from. Once we receive your check, we will send you a receipt with your priority selection number.
We will keep everyone informed of the entire process, from breeding week, through pregnancy, delivery and the first eight weeks of life. We publish a litter picture within a day of birth, and then we provide weekly updates with pictures beginning at three weeks of age, when the puppies are identified individually by their microchip number.
On week five, we hold "Puppy Pick Weekend" where we invite all the owners to our home to select their puppy. The person placing the first deposit will come first and have their choice of all the puppies in the litter. The person placing the second deposit will choose second, and so on.
On week eight, all the owners are invited back again to pick up their puppies to take home. It is a happy day indeed !
