There is a $300 deposit to hold a puppy. Deposits are placed on upcoming litters, and customers with deposits get priority in the selection process on a first-in first-out basis. Deposit customers may select the puppy of their choice in the order of deposit. We do not take deposits based on the gender or color of the puppy. Once the litter is born, deposits are no longer refundable but transferable to another litter.
We do not require an application to make a deposit. Instead, we conduct a get to know you phone call with our prospective buyers prior to our puppies going home. We feel that a phone interview gives us all the information we need to make an assessment and get to know our buyers first-hand.
Deposits are refundable prior to delivery of puppy. They are also transferable from one litter to another if needed. If for some reason you are unable to take a puppy, you may opt to roll your deposit to a future litter or we will also refund your deposit. Balance payment is due at puppy pickup. You will receive our contract and an option to pay by check, Venmo, Zelle or Square. There is a 3.5% handling fee to use a credit card.
Welcome to Deb’s Doodles
Hi! I’m Debbie. Welcome to Deb’s Doodles!
We are located in Northern Virginia outside of Washington D.C. We breed Goldendoodles, Sheepadoodles, and Bernedoodles. We are proud of our solid reputation and we love our dogs and puppies like family members.
Take a moment to see how we raise our dogs in the video.
Debbies Doodles at Home
Welcome to Deb’s Doodles, where the journey began with a 21-year-old dreamer deeply in love with golden retrievers. My name is Deborah Gillespie, and I embarked on the adventure of breeding these soulful companions, creating a bond that would last a lifetime.
In the heart of Bel Air, Maryland, my husband and I shared common values and dreams for our dogs. While navigating the world of nursing, I cared for the sick and continued breeding on a limited basis. Juggling children, work, and our furry friends, the breeding journey paused temporarily.
As the kids grew, so did our passion for breeding. Over a decade of nurturing, we had around 8 dogs and one lucky stud, laying the foundation for a legacy that would soon include an unexpected addition – the poodle. Despite initial reservations, the poodle brought a newfound love into our lives, enhancing the health, intelligence, and beauty of our furry family.
In 2016, fueled by prayers and determination, Debsdoodles Kennels emerged, becoming a first-class establishment serving the East Coast and beyond. Gratitude fills our hearts for the enduring relationships we’ve cultivated with our cherished customers, featured in the pages of Debs Daily News.
Our mission at Deb’s Doodles is simple but profound: to provide healthy, happy Goldendoodles, Berniedoodles, and Sheepadoodles to loving homes and responsible families. Join us on this incredible journey, where every doodle is more than a pet – they’re a cherished companion for years of joy and laughter.
With doodle love,
At Deb’s Doodles, our puppies are loved as if they were to be members of our family forever. Our puppies are whelped and raised in our puppy whelping room until four weeks of age. The Moms and puppies are well cared for with around the clock care.
Health Tested Adults
We prioritize the health and well-being of our dogs and their future generations. We are proud to conduct thorough health testing through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) to ensure that our breeding dogs meet the highest standards of health.
Deb’s Camp Doodle
Deb’s Camp Doodle is a Puppy Training program designed specifically for our Doodles. The training embraces the nature of Doodles and provides a great foundation for your puppy. Our training program is perfect for those wanting a head-start on obedience and basic training.
We recognize the importance of training and want to do everything we can to help you get started in the right direction as quickly as possible with your new puppy. We have partnered with Baxter & Bella and their online puppy school.
We’ve put together a list of resources for you after your new puppy comes home. Whether your dog goes to our Deb’s Camp Doodle or you train your puppy yourself with our On-line Training Program, a well-mannered puppy is the goal. Having the right knowledge and training aids can make a world of difference.
