"We highly recommend Pride & Prejudoodles as a breeder. The Pride & Prejudoodles family takes steps to make sure their breeding dogs and their offspring are treated well and loved like members of their family. The puppy we adopted arrived in excellent health and happy. She has adapted to our home quickly and we are grateful to the Shades for providing us with a beautiful little girl."

"Izzy is perfect! She has so much personality and is the most loyal and loving dog we could ask for! She loves going on hikes and chasing squirrels. she has also had a purple dinosaur for a few months that she has to sleep with every night. She is just too cute! We are so thankful for her every day!"
"We were celebrating Tilly's birthday yesterday We love her more and more every day! She is such a great dog and definitely part of our family. She has really added to our family and I am not sure there is any other dog that gets as much love as she does!"

"Mason is doing great! He is eating regularly, doing well house-training, and sleeping in his crate at night without whining. Mason did go to the vet yesterday and he is very healthy. We have some friends looking to get labradoodles in the next year or two and we'll definitely pass on your information! Thanks again for Mason!"

“Fencer is doing great and I am truly amazed at how well she is already potty trained. She has such a sweet disposition and is just a joy. I appreciate all of your help! We feel very lucky to have found Fencer.”
"We ended up surprising Bryan Wednesday morning as we put Bella in bed with Bryan to wake him up (he thought she wasn't coming until Friday). He actually had tears in his eyes and was so excited to finally have her home. She is such a sweetheart, she did very well the first night and acted as if she knew she was home. Bella has done awesome on the potty training and has only had one accident the first morning here. She has such a great personality and loves Bryan and you can tell she was around little ones. She is the way she is due to how you started her out and I thank you for being such great people with your dogs and puppies, it truly shows."
"Oakley is doing great. She is already ringing bell to go outside. She sleeps a lot but when she is up she loves to be outdoors. Which is great cause our kids are outdoor kids. She holds all night long. She is wonderful. Thank you so much.
"Our little Lola is just 9 1/2 weeks old and she's just the best puppy ever!! We love her so much! Thanks to Kelsey for bringing us such a gem, I wish we could get all the puppies!"

"We have been so very blessed to have Bella as a part of our family. She is loved by everyone she meets. She is a very smart girl! She has many dog friends in our area that she loves to play and when my son's friends come over she is all about the kids. My son Bryan has such a special bond with her and he considers her his best friend."

"Oscar is SO playful and sweet - we just love him so much!!! He LOVES meeting new people and dogs. He has already learned to play fetch outside, go up and down stairs and come inside when we call his name. Thank you so much for everything and for giving Oscar a great first home. We can tell by how affectionate he is that he came from a loving, hands-on home."
"We are so in love with Josie! It was wonderful getting the pictures every week and watching the videos. Your husband was very nice and helpful when he delivered her. I have no complaints at all. She's beautiful, well-behaved, smart, and sweet as can be. We will be sure to highly recommend you to anyone we meet looking for a puppy to add to their family. "
"I cannot express what a wonderful experience I had with Kelsey and her husband at Pride & Prejudoodles! The customer service was amazing!! I emailed Kelsey several times before adopting my new baby boy and she answered every single question I had and in a timely manner!! Her husband was also amazing! He drove several hours to meet me to deliver my new boy. He was very informative and also answered all my questions! And as for my new boy!! Oh my! He was more amazing and more cute even than in all the pictures Kelsey sent! Words cannot even express how wonderful he is! He is an amazing, sweet, well mannered and super sweet puppy! His temperament is out of this world and of course he is non shedding and adorable!! Everyone comments on how mellow, sweet and cute he is!! Again, I cannot express what a wonderful experience I had with Kelsey and her husband! I highly, highly recommend them to anybody who is looking for an amazing new adorable and non shedding puppy and great customer satisfaction!"
"This week has been so exciting and fun! I've been meaning to email some photos. Reece has grown so much in one week and it's amazing how quickly he is learning already! He has had very few accidents in the house and is already picking up on simple commands such as come, sit, and lay down. All of our neighbors are just in love with him and many have asked for your business card, I've been making lots of copies!"
"My family and I went to their house to pick out our puppy. You can tell they take great pride in breeding their dogs! The whole process is great, with the receiving weekly updated emails including helpful info, pictures and videos. I would absolutely recommend them!"
"I was out of state and worried about making sure everything was authentic! There are so many scams out there it's hard to trust! Kelsey answered all of my questions and made me feel a sense of security knowing not only was my puppy real but taken care of with the most love and care! My family is so very blessed to add such a good pup to our family! She's doing great with potty training, and she loves my kids and cat! Not to mention she's adorable ;)"
"We are so impressed with Pride and Prejudoodles! We have loved the weekly updates, pictures, videos and training tips that we receive weekly about our sweet puppy. Today we went to visit our puppy, Tucker, and we were blown away! Such a wonderful family who takes great care of the puppies. I love how the puppies grow up in a clean, loving environment with space to run and explore. I highly recommend this breeder to anyone who wants a sweet, hypoallergenic dog! They do an amazing job and you can tell that they have a passion for raising dogs the right way."
"Absolutely LOVE Pride and Prejudoodles! We are getting our puppy in just a few weeks and had so much fun visiting her today. Kelsey and her family are so sweet and welcoming and take wonderful care of their puppies- all that you would want in a breeder!!! They have great space to run around and play and everything is kept very clean! Our puppy is definitely loved on by them, and already has such a sweet temperament. If you want a hypoallergenic dog who is also super cute, loving, and well cared for- you've come to the right place!!"
"Great people! Gave tons of info most breeders wouldn't even think to help with or explain. Our Goldendoodle Knight is perfect!!! Thanks so much!"
"Thank you for the birthday wishes for Macy! We absolutely love her and don't know what we would do without her...we would definitely be missing an important piece of our family!"
"Ruby is enjoying her second birthday! We adore this dog and you will be pleased to know that she is very happy and spoiled. She is our kids' best friend and my favorite running buddy. Ruby is a great and beautiful dog and we are so happy she is part of our family."
Dylan & Braydan Wells
"Murphy has been awesome! He is such a calm and relaxed dog. He of course is still a pup so he still shows a lot of energy at times but overall very docile, which is great. He is doing very well with potty training and crate training. He is able to sit, come (that one was easy for him), and stay (sometimes).
Murphy seems to get along with everybody. We are so thankful for all the work that you and your husband have done for Murphy and us for that matter. We will definitely recommend you all and wish you all the luck with your current litters!"
Dot & Butch Ware
"We adopted our lovely little Sophie from Pride & Prejudoodles. Our experience with Kelsey & Joshua has been truly AWESOME!! They are resolute in their pursuit of producing healthy, well cared for puppies. From the moment of her birth we were kept informed with a weekly update of her progress and the added bonuses of photos & videos!! We bonded with our pup before we had ever met her in person! We also received weekly "PUPPY INSTRUCTIONS" to aid in adjusting to and raising our little one. Kelsey always responded to either my texts or phone calls as soon as she could.
We have been and will continue to highly recommend to anyone interested in adopting a Goldendoodle or Labradoodle to make sure they consider PRIDE & PREJUDOODLES before they do so."
"We couldn't have asked for a more perfect pup! Thank you a million times! You guys are awesome! I'm already planning for more dogs and we will absolutely be coming back to you!"
"I am in love with this little girl, and have been giving your information out to everyone that ask. Best breeders award!!! Thanks again for such an great puppy."
"We love Tilly more and more each day. She is really just the best! I cannot overestimate how much she had added to our family. Each day our girls still come running in to see her after a day at school. And just today as we walked them to school, Tilly kept turning back to look at them after we dropped them off. Tilly loves us just as much as we love her.!!! I hope you new place in Virginia is just as nice or better for your family and by family I mean your dogs too. I know that they are your family too because of how awesome Tilly is. Thank you again. We had no idea how much our heart would grow for Tilly."
"We have had an amazing experience with Pride and Prejudoodles, so if you are looking for a great breeder look no further!!!!!! Pride and Prejudoodles has been so helpful from the very beginning! Once our puppy, Bluebeans (Blue), was born they sent us weekly updates telling how our puppy was doing, and giving advice to prepare us for the big day!!!! We can't thank Pride and Prejudoodles enough for such an awesome dog!!! Bluebeans is so cute, sweet, and funny! Blue is super smart too! We've only had him for almost 3 weeks and he already knows how to sit, stay, and come!!! We have 2 other dogs (a yellow lab and a mutt) and they all get along and love to play together!!! Bluebeans always has a lot of energy and loves to go for walks and play fetch! Blue is such a great dog!!!!!!!!"
"Lexi has been such a joy to have, she is so smart, loving, and just has the best personality. Having her makes all days better. I'm more than happy I made the decision to get her and meet y'all's wonderful family!"
"Cub is doing great and surprisingly smart. He can now sit, lay down, and give you his paw for a hand shake on command. He is use to his crate and does not whine anymore when it's time to go in it. I work 3rd shift and keep him in the crate at night and so far he has not had 1 accident in the house or his crate even though I'm gone to work for 9 hours. He knows he does that outside only."
"Ellie is full of personality and loves on everyone she has come in contact with! I couldn't have asked for a better puppy. I cannot thank you and Joshua enough for delivering me such a healthy, beautiful, and sweet dog!"
"Edward is such a friendly and loving dog! He is so playful, well behaved and social. We feel so blessed to have a dog with such a wonderful personality. Thanks for all the love and care you gave him."
"We have were very happy with Pride and Predjudoodles. We loved the weekly emails. All the advice prepared us, but we mostly looked forward to the photos and personal updates on what he had been up to. You guys seemed to prepare him well to be trained and he seemed well adapted to new people and children right off. The book you supplied has been really helpful. Our Elvis is so sweet and mild mannered we couldn't be pleased. We took him on a trip with a bunch of other families out to a ranch and he was in heaven and they were all so impressed with his mild manner. We hardly put him on the leash and he never strayed too far. We have been so happy with him. The kids love him."
"Whiskey has been an absolutely bundle of joy since we met him! He's incredibly playful, sweet, and snuggly! He has done great with our friends' dogs as well as with children. We absolutely can't wait to watch him grow with us in our little family!"
"Amazing is an understatement for Pride And Prejudoodles. Hercules fits into our family perfectly. Kelsey and Josh have made the process and transition incredibly easy and stress-free. They were helpful with answering all of my questions. Hercules is so smart and well behaved. I am so glad I went with Prideandprejdoodles. I would definitely do business with them again!"
"When we got Lucy, she already was responding to her name, knew to potty outside when we took her out, and is adjusting well to the crate! The blanket that you sent to us helped out a great deal. Lucy sleeps through the night and only gets up when we wake her up for a potty break. Lucy is a very calm/chill dog. We love her so much!!"
"I can't believe it's already been a year. We absolutely love Belfie. She is by far the most easy going dog I've ever owned. Dane refers to her as his "sister" so I don't think any explanation is needed about how he feels about her. Belfie loves playing fetch, chasing rabbits out of the backyard, car rides, swimming, playing tag at the park with Dane and his friends and hogging the bed (gotta have one bad habit, I guess). Thank you guys for giving us the opportunity to own such a loving pup!"
"I wanted to share our exciting news as Bella was recommended to become a therapy dog and will start her training this Month! Though she hasn't been in training classes and has only learned from us she is so smart and loving that I know she will do great! Because of you guys so many people have gotten such great and loving dogs!"
"Marley is growing so fast. He has not had one accident in his crate. He is potty trained, knows how to sit, lay down, shake with both hands, turn around and speak. We are learning roll over and stay (which he does NOT like) now. He is such a smart boy. Thank y'all so much for giving me this precious gift. We are so in love."
"Tucker is so gentle and sweet with my niece, Lexi. I love how gentle and patient he is with kids. Once again, thanks for everything!!"
"Sophie is absolutely the sweetest thing! She has gone out 4 times and knows just what to do. Thanks so much for all the effort you and your husband have put into training her. It certainly has paid off! She loves the kids, her little tail starts wagging as soon as she sees them. I just wanted to say thanks! We love her!"
"Hi, Kelsey! Remi is quite a smart pup! He has not only graduated from Puppy 1 & 2, he just graduated from Adult 1 at Petco last week! His trainer and I are very impressed with his desire to learn! He is doing great, and loves to romp around with the boys. We made him a birthday cake tonight. He loved it!"
"Raji was awoken at 11pm after hearing Rufus bark constantly, she came down from her sleep to find me on the ground. I had a not been able to do dialysis for 2 days due to complications. She immediately called 911 and I woke up 2 days later in the hospital. I am happy to say that my kidney transplant was a success 1 week ago, and we always say that Rufus truly saved my life. He is the cutest and we are so proud of him."
"Joshua and Kelsey, thank you for being by our side through our journey to add Knight and Thor to our lives. They have made our family complete. I have recommended you to several families. Your weekly updates, informative communications, and obvious loving atmosphere is what brought us to you, and is what brought us back when we knew we wanted to add to our family. We were willing to drive much farther since your move, but you even made that a positive and exciting experience. The McWilliams family thanks you!!"
"Maylee has grown so fast! She absolutely loves my boys! She also loves our cat but he hasn't taken to her quite yet! She just got her first very small and simple grooming session! She starts doggy training school on Saturday! She is very social and loves people and other animals!
She is so energetic and loving! We adore her!"
"My boyfriend and I visited Pride and Prejudoodles yesterday, and loved seeing the beautiful grounds and meeting their puppies! The Shade family runs a wonderful, "family farm" like atmosphere for their dogs - you can tell they really care for their puppies, and they provided wonderful service to visitors. The puppies were incredibly sweet, gentle and, needless to say, very, VERY cute."
"Bronx is doing so well and is adjusting perfectly to our home! We just can't get enough of him and love him so much. Everyone that meets him can't believe how calm and well behaved he is! We have been home with him for the last 6 days and that has seemed to really help him adjust quickly. We've been enjoying watching him become more comfortable and confident with his new environment each day. Thanks again for all your hard work during the first 8 weeks of his life. It's been such a great experience adopting from you guys and I would love to be put on your reference list."
"We are so happy with Camden and have fallen in love with his personality. You and your family made us feel so welcome at your home and so comfortable and confident throughout the entire adoption process. We just wanted to say thank you again."

"Bluebeans is my dog I got to pick him, name him, and he is my responsibility. During Blue's training I am in charge of him. I love him and so does the rest of my family. Blue is always waiting for me at the front door when I get home from school. He always greets me with kisses and excitement. He sleeps with my at night and doesn't go to bed until I am in bed. Bluebeans is an AMAZING dog and I cant thank you enough for him!!"
"It's hard to believe we've had Sophie a year now! The kids are so excited for her 1st birthday. We have some surprises planned for Sophie after school today.
Sophie is such a smart, sweet puppy! She loves to play with the kids and go for walks. She weighed 46lbs last month and she is still growing! Hard to believe since she started out so tiny! She is starting her 1st agility class tomorrow."
"Hugs from Sparkie. Today is her 2 year birthday. She is doing great. Very smart and loving."
"Remi is a blessing!! I've had so many compliments on his demeanor. He has done very well with training."
"I just wanted to say THANK YOU and Joshua so much! Barkley has fit right in. He has no jumped or barked. He is so calm and great with the children. We took him to visit my father in law. He is a bed bound hospice patient and he just laid with him and was so loving. We are already so in love. He has been using his potty chimes and no accidents so far. I will send you some pictures tomorrow. You have a wonderful business and we highly recommend you to our friends. Thank you for all of the training, love and support through this process. Your dedication to your puppies shines!!"
"Leia is GREAT!!!!!! Feeling a little mommy guilt today since this is our first day the whole fam is back to work and school BUT...we have awesome neighbors serving as dogwalkers and caregivers mid morning and mid afternoon...so hoping that she still feels the love we've given her over the last week! She's been great in the crate at night and rest time (doesn't like going in, but she doesn't cry now that it's in our room). Great with the kids and they just love her! Perfect first Vet visit (fell asleep on the exam room floor), etc. I think she fits right in!"
"Breaker is a great dog! We can't go anywhere without getting some many compliments. People go crazy over him."
"Oakley is fabulously amazing!! His demeanor and personality are perfect for our family. Training overall has been going very smoothly. We took him to his first softball tournament and no fewer than a few hundred ooh'd and ahh'd or pet Oakley. We provided your home webpage and site to a few families that are in the process of all the research."
"Whiskey is truly just a huge bundle of joy and has brought so much love and happiness into our home. He loves to play fetch, belly rubs, snuggling, jumping up and down. He has graduated puppy kindergarted and is already excelling in our next training class. He's growing way too fast (41 pounds at 5 months!) but we love that he still has his puppy personality! We see a bit of his teen-self coming through but we love it just as much! He had a great Thanksgiving walking around a lake with us. We love that he sticks by our side even when he's off leash smile emoticon It just makes us feel even more loved."
"Betty is such a joy! She's the sweetest dog we could've asked for. She's such a happy goof and continuously keeps us laughing. We're so happy with how she's maturing and her eyes are absolutely beautiful. She's gotten really good with her commands and is very gentle around all the little dogs in our family, including her sister Pippa who is a maltipoo. Thanks again for such sweet puppy!"
"Noel is wonderful, simply wonderful. I can’t begin to put into words how truly perfect she is for our family. Her personality has filled our hearts with joy and love. She is the perfect puppy for us, so much fun and such a happy girl. We can tell she came from a loving family, a loving home."
