“In times of joy, all of us wished we possessed a tail we could wag.”
Cory James - NY, NY
It’s been officially 2 weeks with my little KJ, and the experience has been nothing short of amazing. From the very beginning, I knew Pawtastic Doodles was the right choice for me. Initially, that was just by looking at its website after researching different breeders for years. But I got a sense of comfort by seeing Julie and her family with all their pups. I also felt she had a wealth of knowledge on her page along with information about each of the mama and papa dogs. And need I say ALL of the litters were beautiful. Then I had my first phone call with Julie, and I was sold by her willingness to answer every question (and I had A LOT — lol) along with her passion for what she does. However, she didn’t make the conversation feel rushed, and Julie even encouraged me to reach out about anything no matter the time of day.
After putting down my deposit, I watched more of her videos on social media, witnessing the work she does with each litter from training — to techniques to increase exposure — to simply loving on them with her girls by her side. Every bit of it was confirmation. And that was validated after bringing KJ home. He’s a pure joy and has brought such happiness to my life in 14 days. His personality couldn’t be more perfect. Calm, playful, smart, healthy and he loves people, which is an added plus living in NYC.
Sometimes I’ll play Julie saying “puppy, puppy, puppies” from her Instagram videos and KJ’s eyes literally light up from hearing her voice as he jumps with excitement. For me that seals the deal that Pawtastic Doodles did everything right — raising my boy in an incredibly loving home. A place he'll never forget. And a place I'll return to for puppy #2.

I just want to start out by saying if you are debating on working with Pawtastic doodles... DO IT!!!!! You won’t regret it! We are so thankful and glad we did!! Julie is an amazing person/breeder who loves her dogs and goes above and beyond to make sure the whole process is smooth and the very best that it can be. From providing top of the line health care to courteous and friendly communication. She is always prepared and on top of her game. She gave us updates throughout the whole process and made us feel at ease. She was so helpful in answering any questions I had. She is very knowledgeable and truly passionate when it comes to breeding and her puppies! I loved that she was never pushy, and went the extra mile to make sure we got the right puppy that fit us and our family! Our puppie’s temperament, health and grooming was all more than I could have imagined!
We are beyond pleased and are so in love with our sweet Georgie! We can’t say thank you enough and will definitely use Julie again in the future!!!

"If you are looking for the perfect doodle Julie is your lady! Our little boy Hootie is by far the best doodle we have ever had & we’ve had three! From the day we brought him home he has stolen everybody’s heart. My brother & his girlfriend loved Hootie so much they went the next day & got his brother! Hootie is the snuggliest, goofiest, smartest & playful dog. He absolutely loves everyone & everything. On top of that he has been the EASIEST dog to train because of how sharp he is. Hootie picked up potty training right away, he hasn’t chewed anything he isn’t suppose to & he learns basic commands with ease (some on the 3rd or 4th try). We literally cannot take Hootie anywhere without someone complimenting how beautiful & well behaved he is and begging for the breeders information!"

"Hi Julie! I just wanted to reach out and let you know that Brian and I are so grateful for all you and your family did in raising Gibson and his brothers and sisters. He is SUCH A GEM. He’s loving and cuddly and is so smart! In less than a week he’s already learned some basic commands and working on more. He’s been so easy to travel with and lays on my lap every car ride. We’ve had so many people ask us about him and may be sending some people your way for future litters. Thank you for always being so responsive and answering all my crazy questions and sharing their stories as they grew. We appreciate everything you’ve done and love Gibson so much."

"Fate led us to Pawtastic doodles, Julie and our perfect Lincoln. We thank God everyday that it did! Not only is Lincoln the cutest dog in the world he is incredibly affectionate, attentive, intelligent, easy to train and “absolutely perfect!” health-wise says our vet!
From night one he has been right at home. No crying in his crate at night and no accidents! Potty training and crate training both have truly been a breeze! Lincoln adapts well to new environments and people. He hasn’t met a person (or child) that he doesn’t love and everyone who sees him falls in love at first sight.
The process with Julie/Pawtastic from before he was even born to when we picked him up was transparent, easy and FUN! Julie provided constant updates as well as guidance to picking the perfect family member for us. Theses puppies are apart of Julie’s family and she keeps up with Lincoln to this day. The love and attention poured into their puppies shines through Lincoln everyday. Pawtastic Doodles is a godsend to us and we know Julie is someone we will always stay connected with!"

"Archie is an angel. He is sweet, cuddly, energetic and playful. He brings so much happiness to our lives and makes coming home from work everyday so exciting! He has been so easy to train and is a great listener! Archie is always the center of attention when we bring him out in public. He loves everyone he meets and is always friendly. Pawtastic Doodles have been amazing breeders and have continued to check in on our sweet pup. Julie knows everything about golden doodles and will make sure you are getting the best dog ever! You can't go wrong with any of their puppies! We can't imagine life without Archie!"
Jack - Albany, NY
"Thank you so much Julie and family for showing these puppies so much love and for giving them such a wonderful start to their lives. Sage came already well-trained and followed basic commands from the start. Super impressed with how well behaved and smart this puppy was from the start. Julie made the process extremely easy for a first time puppy owner. Thank you so much again!"

"Jack is an absolute sweetheart! He fits into our family perfectly!"
Carol and Howie - Palm Springs, CA
"Every step in the process has been wonderful — from meeting Julie to the puppy herself!! Julie truly cares for the puppies, making sure each puppy ends up in the right home. The puppy even already had some skills from Julie, which made those challenging first few days much easier. She even sent the puppy for our long drive home with a traveling crate and a stuffed toy complete with a warmer and a heartbeat. If you care about getting a great puppy, strongly recommend going through Julie!"
Emma - San Diego, CA
Julie from Pawtastic doodles from our first interaction has exceeded our expectations. After months of research and interactions with other breeders when we talked with Julie we 100% knew that our puppy had to come from Pawtastic doodles. Julie is very personable, knowledgeable, caring and became a friend in the process.
Our puppy Mando is everything we ever imagined and more! The time and love that Julie spends with the puppies has showed from day one. Julie made sure to keep open communication by sharing videos, picture and updates through social media. As well as sweet personal text messages of our little guy. The ENS process that Julie performs with her pups clearly shows in Mando’s behavior. By the second day he was ringing his potty bell to go outside and peacefully slept the entire night in his crate.
Everywhere we go with Mando we get stopped. He has a gorgeous healthy coat that not only looks beautiful but also feels amazing. We absolutely adore our little teddy bear and are very greatful to have him a part of our family. If anyone is looking to get a puppy I highly recommend Pawtastic Doodles!!

My dog Arrow, has been nothing but the best! The whole process was very detailed from start to finish with weekly updates up until the day he was sent over. Honestly, I could not have asked for a better puppy or breeder. I would highly recommend Julie to any one, no second thoughts. She was so loving and attentive which i admired. She truly has a passion for breeding dogs. I was extremely happy with the desensitizing (ENS) that she did. Introducing them to new sounds and textures. It made Arrows transition home so much better and easier. He is such a happy smart boy. With that being said, I would give Julie and Pawtastic doodles a 10/10! The whole entire process was amazing!

I have only wonderful things to say about Julie and Pawtastic Doodles. She is so passionate and knowledgeable when it comes to dogs and breeding. From our very first conversation she was so sweet, sincere and put us at ease about the whole process. She kept us in the loop with every step of the way which we greatly appreciated as we had a ton of questions that she was always more than happy to answer! I knew I was looking for a breeder who does genetic testing on her dogs but Julie does all of that and more. She puts so much work into ensuring the puppies have ideal temperaments as well as a clean bill of health. Her use of ENS (early neurological stimulation) and sound exposure has proven to be immensely useful because we live in NYC and our puppy is so unphased by all of the sirens, traffic and other loud noises!
Teddy is absolutely adorable, cuddly and sweet. We were blown away by how well trained he was when he showed up (mostly pee pad trained, knew the “sit” command before we even tried to teach him, etc)! Everyone told us we’d have to sleep next to him for the first few nights but he loves his crate and even the first night he had no trouble sleeping. He has been an absolute dream and adds so much joy to our lives! We are so grateful to have found Julie and Pawtastic Doodles and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to bring a new puppy into their lives!

Julie and her family went above and beyond anything we could have imagined. The thoroughness, attentiveness, communication, honesty and love were all present throughout our experience. Julie is an angel on earth. She raises the puppies in her own beautiful, home where you know they are safe and secure. She is transparent and wants to please everyone. Everything went smoothly and without a hitch! It is hard to find one area of improvement. The only thing I can think of is one small minor detail, that slipped through the cracks. We needed a flight nanny and didn’t know how they waited for an open seat on a flight. So they had to be flexible, as did we. In the end, it all worked out to everyone’s advantage! And we received the most perfect, beautiful, healthy, chill puppy!! Which is all we asked for J and we got that and much more.

If you are looking for a mini golden doodle or a cavapoo puppy, look no further than Pawtastic Doodles! Julie and her family provide the absolute best experience for both you and your puppy. I initially reached out to Julie with an eager list of questions and she diligently responded to every single one and ensured she would have the perfect puppy for our family.
Well, our dream came true almost a year later and we’ve never been happier in our entire life! Julie is communicative, thoughtful, caring and genuinely wants you to have the puppy of your dreams. We were initially planning to get a puppy with one litter and made the tough decision to wait until the next, trusting we would have a puppy that was the perfect fit for our family. That decision was hard, but we are beyond grateful Julie took the time to vulnerably share every detail of the litter and genuinely wants you to have exactly what you are looking for in a puppy-not all breeders do.
During the waiting period, Julie took the time to call me and discuss questions and frequently kept me updated anytime she had new information. Once the puppies are born, she provides update photos, videos and messages each and every step of the way, so you and your family can be a part of the puppy’s journey, beginning at birth!
Our puppy, Louise, continues to hit every milestone quickly and we know that is because of the work and effort Julie put in during the critical growth period of her life. There are so many breeders out there, but no one can provide the kind of tailored and personal experience that Julie does. She and her family love your puppy like their own and we feel so grateful to have had such a positive and wonderful experience!

Thank you to Julie for our amazing Koffi, mini Goldendoodle. We started looking for a puppy around February 2021 and after researching a lot I came across Pawtastic. I had been very frustrated with other breeders or places as not enough information or response was available. When I found Julie her timeline of when the puppies were going to be available was not matching mine, she was very patient and walked through the entire process. Even though the timeline did not match I put down the deposit. Overtime, her knowledge and care for the puppies won my trust and I waited to get mine. She is honest and does not sugarcoat the information. She will always inform you of reality and will always keep you updated, which for me was very important.
From February- August when Koffi was born, I would watch multiple videos that she would post for puppy care, her process and others stories that helped me prepare for mine. If you are deciding to get a puppy from a breeder and not adopting, I would highly recommend Julie as it truly felt like I was getting a new family member and not a toy.
As for Koffi, he is adorable and a very well behaved dog. Our first vet visit the Dr. confirmed he is very healthy and in one of the best conditions she has seen puppies. He is smart, playful and has a charming personality. I am sure if you see his photograph, I don’t have to attest for the cuteness as it speaks for itself.
Again, thank you to Julie and the Pawtastic family for raising our Koffi and providing him so much love in his early months!

"We love our Pawtastic doodle. He has perfect body proportions. He looks like a big dog that was shrunk with big dog proportions. He came home mostly potty trained. He is the perfect color. Everywhere he goes people stop to tell us how beautiful and small he is. No one can believe he is a golden doodle because he is so small. He learns tricks after just a few reps. He can sit, stay, shake, roll over, dance, jump. We have enjoyed our puppy so much. He is so social he loves to meet everyone."
Tiffany - Tuscon, AZ
There is no comparison to the quality of breeding, training and care that Julie of Pawtastic Doodles takes with all of her pups. The entire process was unlike any other breeder experience. From the very beginning Julie showed how important it was for her to understand what our family was looking for in a dog and was very detailed in explaining her process.
We must have sent a hundred messages back and forth, plus the FaceTime selection, and never once did I feel like I was a bother. You can see Julie truly values each of her pups and her potential families. Our sweet Luxe, a beautiful goldendoodle, is more than we could have hoped for.
The special training and exposures that Julie invests into each of her pups is so evident. From day one of her arrival luxe slept all night in her crate, no whining and no crying and NO night accidents! We followed Julie’s suggestion to bell train for potty time and it has been a great choice for us. Luxe will swipe the bell and sit by the door and wait for us to let her out.
Bath time is a breeze. I could go on and on but the bottom line is that Pawtastic Doodles is the ultimate in personalized puppy selection and care, I’m so grateful we found Julie and our perfect pup!
Our clients absolutely love us, as you can see.

We cannot say enough about Julie and her puppies. From our first phone call until today, Julie is always available to chat and answer questions. She is a perfectionist, and it shows in how amazing her puppies are. Winter has exceeded every single one of our expectations. She is adorable, has the absolute sweetest disposition and is so easy going...and she even sleeps through the night!! I highly recommend Julie and Pawtastic Doodles I would not get a puppy from anyone else!!
Max & Michelle - Phoenix, Az
"My husband and I highly recommend Pawtastic Doodles! Julie was kind, helpful, and so easy to work. She answered all of our questions and took time out of her day to help us pick the perfect pup for our family. We love our pup so much and if we ever decide to get a second, we will definitely use Pawtastic Doodles again."

Hi Julie, I do want to take a few minutes and thank you again for a wonderful experience with getting my Doodle (Boomer). I knew from the first time we spoke it was going to be good. First I just love this little guy, and would do anything for him. Your trainings and willingness to answer questions has made that very easy. All week long I’ve been asked if ‘he’s up all night?’, no he sleeps the night. ‘How are you doing with potty training?’ I’m asked. ‘He goes on the puppy pads.’ He’s so calm with no concern for noises or new people. I tell people when they say ‘you’re lucky’, yes I was to find a great breeder. Love him and love the experience of getting him!
