You. The Center of their World.
Our mission at Centerpiece Puppies is to produce happy and healthy and beautiful puppies who LOVE their people!
We aim to prepare our puppies to transition to their life with you through early socialization and conditioning, and to help to match you to a pup that's perfect for your life.
Producing the perfect puppy for you!
We are a licensed and inspected, small-scale, family-run breeder of Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles (coming 2022), who live in rural northern Colorado. We raise puppies with our 5 children, and handle them daily, acclimating them to new experiences, sounds and sensations including (but not limited to) exposure to a variety of people, ENS/ESI, experience with grooming procedures, sound tracks with different sounds, as well as household noises.
Contact me with any questions!
Interested in one of our puppies? This is how we do things!
If you are interested in a puppy or have any questions, please contact us! I'd love to meet you and learn more about your situation and the kind of home you have to offer one of our precious puppies!
Or if you are ready to apply, take a minute to fill out the quick application on our website - the more information you can give me, the better! And we can discuss any questions you have as well!
When you are ready and have all your questions answered, and are approved for a Centerpiece Puppy, I can accept your deposit of $500 to hold your spot on our master waitlist. I do not reserve spots on particular litters before they are born. Having a master waitlist allows us some flexibility for things we cant control - such as litter size, color/markings, gender, etc.
When puppies of a particular litter are 2 weeks old, I will go down the master waitlist and ask for a commitment to the litter until all spots are filled. Waiting until puppies are 2 weeks gives you the opportunity to see the puppies, and watch them grow up a little bit before you have to make a commitment!
Temperament assessments and vet checks will be preformed at 7 weeks, and the information shared with you so you will have the opportunity to review that information before selection!
Selection and pick up will now be a combined date! We will schedule a selection day on the weekend after puppies turn 8 weeks old! Each deposit-holder will be invited by appointment, in order of deposits placed to meet the puppies, select their puppy, and bring their puppy home! If you are not able to attend this selection day in person, we can use your time slot to do a virtual meet and greet/selection!
This is a new system for us, but we are making this change so that we can truly optimize matching you with your perfect puppy, and giving you as much information as possible to make the best choice for you! Waiting until the puppies are 8 weeks old also helps the puppies' health and delicate immune systems!
I will update this website with weekly photos, and my Facebook and Instagram page with daily life photos, and my stories with videos so that you can be a part of your puppy's first 8 weeks as much as possible!
Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE. except for in extreme circumstances.
The total remainder of the payment is due at or before puppy pickup!
I can take deposit and remainder via Cash, Card (fees apply), Venmo (free), PayPal (fees apply), CashApp (free) or Zelle (free).
We pour our hearts and lives into each of our puppies and dogs. It's important to us to give them the best start possible, and to make sure that they go to wonderful homes!
The price for our Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles is subject to change. See the Upcoming Litters page for current pricing information per litter.
Most importantly, our puppies are handled, loved, and touched every single day from birth. We implement Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) daily starting at 3 days old and going until 16 days old. We also do daily exposure activities to acclimate them to the idea that the world is safe, dogs are friendly and people are kind (inspired by the BA Breeder early socialization schedule). They are very well socialized by children and adults alike - these puppies are lovers! They are started on potty training (learning to keep their sleep and playing area clean) starting as soon as their eyes open and they can eliminate on their own, and are exposed to kennel training. They spend plenty of time with each other, to learn to play nice, and lots of time with mom to learn their manners!
Puppies will of course come vet checked with a genetic health guarantee to go with our Purchase Agreement, a bill of health from our vet, UTD on shots and de-wormings, microchipped with microchip registration papers, and 30 days of free pet insurance through Trupanion. We have also partnered with Baxter&Bella online puppy/dog-training school! Get 25% off a lifetime membership (which includes one-on-one phone calls with trainers) when you use our unique code (CENTERPIECE) at Baxter&Bella.
They will also come with a puppy collar and a retractable leash (for easy leash training), a toy/blanket that smells like home, some grooming supplies, a keepsake, and other paperwork and goodies. We will both sign a copy of the Puppy Purchase Agreement, so please read over that prior to picking up your pup!
