| "Thank you so much for giving us the most memorable Christmas ever! Our
9 year old son Ryan was overjoyed when he we surprised him with a puppy
Christmas morning, thanks to you! We
are so grateful to have found you and have the most amazing dog because of you!
From the moment we meet you on our very first visit to your home we knew you
were the breeder for us! The love and devotion you put into your dogs was
apparent to us right away. It is obvious you are a true expert in what you do
and guided us through the process with such amazing weekly updates and were
always only a phone call away! Our puppy has been a joy to the entire family
and was so much more then we could have ever asked for. I can not imagine
buying another dog from anyone but you and have nothing but raving revues and
sincere gratitude for all you do!"

"We wanted you to know how much
we love our Huck. He is the smartest dog in the world, and we love him so. He
comes in and out of the house when you call him for 'Treats' or better yet
'Millo's Meatballs'. On command, he lies down, sits, puts head down, jumps up
(his favorite), barks, and wakes the kids up -- gives ear kisses. He lets me
know when he needs to go out by following me around the house and giving me 'the
look'. What a great decision we made to
get a tip of the shore labradoodle. He is such a happy dog and has so much
| "Piper is great. She started sleeping through
the night in her crate after 3 or 4 nights. She saw the vet and trainer her
first two days home and has now met a few of the neighborhood dogs and lots and
lots of people friends. We’re doing a puppy Kindergarten class, but Piper has
already learned sit, she waits somewhat patiently while I clean her paws after
each walk and Ryan has taught her to 'shake.' She is
growing so fast! Thanks
for all your love and care and getting Piper off to a great
"We love our puppy Leo! We
are so grateful for our new family member. Leo is so loving and playful. He
happily greets every member of the family and is always calm when new people
arrive. He has been very easy to potty train and has quickly learned to come,
sit, stay and walk on a leash at only 14 weeks! Leo LOVES to be outside,
whether it's taking a walk, taking a nap, playing fetch or just sitting in his
favorite bush! We can't say enough good things about our experience with Tip
of the Shore Labradoodles. Jackie is extremely responsive to any
questions both before and after you get your puppy always giving helpful and
useful advice. "
"We are thoroughly
enjoying our wonderful new addition to our family. Findley has grown so much
since he has been home. It is amazing to witness all the changes that he has
gone through. He is a very social dog and loves to play with other dogs. You
picked a perfect dog for us- loves to be outside playing with the kids, sleeps
through the night and is very loving. He just finished all his shots (thank
goodness) so hopefully we will not be visiting the vet anytime soon. He has
brought such great joy into our family and we will be forever grateful. I have
referred my friends who have fallen in love with Findley. We see his ˝ brother
Willy often and his BFF lives right next door."
|"The last 8 months with Tessie
(who will be one 11/27) has been nothing short of a blast! She is such a good
puppy! We love her to pieces! She went to puppy school and will shortly be going
back to another session to keep her busy! We recently moved to a house with a
nice fenced in backyard for her to run and play in! She is in love with it and
has adapted well to the change! She also is our little watch dog and spends hours
sitting on the arm of the couch watching out the windows at the neighborhood
cats and squirrels! She is full of energy which is exhausting at times, but
we wouldn't change it for the world! She is about 18lbs and is pretty tall!
Everyone always comments on her long legs! She is a
ham and loves having her picture taken!"
home. The grandkids came over to see him and Scrabble loved them. He is fabulous. Getting to know you has been a major
benefit of having our pup. Losing our lab boys was
very sad and my heart was empty without them.....this is in a way a rebirth for
us! Thank you for all you have done for us and for Scrabble. This experience has been truly amazing for us. I consider having one of
your pups a privilege. You have made these eight weeks a wonderful journey (to
quote you). As you know our dogs mean so much to us. We care for them as we did
our children (better they say), therefore choosing the right breeder and puppy
was very important. We surely hit a home run! He is a very happy
boy. We LOVE him.
"I am a 46 year old woman with a wonderful husband and a 21 year old and 17
year old. Why in the world did I need a dog at this point of my life? I could be
travelling, going on last minute getaways, and being free. Not what I wanted.
There was a small void in my heart that I could not figure out. I needed
something to love and take care of-----that is when Jackie from Tip of the Shore
came into my life.
After our family visit with her and her dogs, we waited a few months to finally pick up the dog. Each week, however, Jackie
called and sent newsletters updating us on the puppies and their mom. The
newsletters were filled with pictures that allowed us to see every stage of the
puppies first eight weeks of life.
Shayna came into our life on July 21. What a truly awesome dog from the
beginning. She is absolutely beautiful and has the greatest temperament you could
dream of. Sleeps in her crate all night from day one. Sits and gave paw in the
I love her more than words can say. She is not only wonderful with us, but
with all that have
entered our home!
Cheers to you Jackie and Tip of the Shore for the greatest dog in the
"Chloe is the
sweet, perfect puppy we could have ever gotten. She is the center of our family.
I took her to the vet today and she weighed 13.5 lbs. She is so healthy and
has the best personality. She never barks! So I just want to thank you, thank you, thank you, for such a perfect
"Jimmer is such a good boy,
barks and loves to be loved and played with. He has lots of friends in the hood
and is friendly with every dog. He has tons of confidence and is
as sweet as can be. He's a
favorite in obedience class and eats like a champ (probably) too fast. He's potty
trained and slept through the night on day 2. He doesn't budge until I take him out of
the crate. Everyone in town loves him and he gets a ton of attention.
Jackie, well done, you breed wonderful pups! !
"We wanted to let you know what an amazing puppy Chewie is. From the moment
we got in the car to leave your house, he was a member of the family. He is
healthy, smart, intuitive, loyal, playful, and quite good-looking. He is a
perfect companion to our three boys. Every night he "puts them to bed" by
spending a little time in each of their rooms. Chewie is such a hit that he inspired his first school project. Our third
grader has done a research project on labradoodles! "
|"Bailey is doing great. She had her
recheck at the vet yesterday. She weighs 10 pounds now! She is such a good
dog! Everyone who meets her loves her. I don’t consider my Mom a pet person, but she loves Bailey. And Bailey
loves my Dad who had a stroke 20 years ago and has some trouble talking. (Last
time after they watched Bailey & the kids, he asked if she missed him!) And
get this – my 87 year old Grandmother said she would watch her anytime too!
Bailey is so
good when people visit us that people fall in love with her. My niece who is 5
counted the days until Easter at my house and cries when she leaves my house.
Bailey has won over my whole
is my little buddy when I work from home, follows me everywhere. Thanks for giving us such a great dog."
"Thank you for
providing me and my family with the greatest dog in the world!! Luna has been a
pleasure since the day we picked her up and so easy to train. She has brought
so much pleasure to our family and I consider her my very best friend! We
love her and include her in everything
"Darwin the Doodle continues to be a love!
We have him in puppy kindergarten, and his eager-to-please sweet temper has
made him the demonstration dog. He is also as cute as can be — taking him out
for a walk yesterday, I was immediately stopped by someone who wanted to take
his picture on her cell phone. We have a family tradition of saying something
we are thankful for every night before supper, and every night, the girls say
they are thankful for Darwin! He really is the perfect dog for
"Liesel is doing great! We are
having so much fun with her and she is such a good girl! She is doing great
with house training, and
just such a nice and fun personality. She doesn't get ruffled by much, has
really enjoyed meeting all the people who have come to see her, and when she's
tired she's starting to walk into her crate of her own accord just to
rest. Thanks again for all you
did to get her started -- we know so much of her confidence and socialization
came from you. We just love her to pieces!"
Pete, children & Liesel
is doing fabulous! People absolutely adore her and she loves
meeting them as well. She is already doing very well on the potty training and is
standing by the back door to let us know she needs to go.
After some training she now sits, stays, lies down, and plays fetch. She is the perfect dog for us and as
you said she is a companion dog. All Riley wants to do is be with a playmate or
at least someone to use as a pillow. Thanks so much for allowing us to have
the best dog ever."
Olivia (and Riley... woof!)
Cricket is a remarkable dog! Thank you for bringing her into our lives. She
has brought a new energy into our family with her sweet, playful disposition. We are all having a blast. Alex is so happy to finally have her puppy and is
very much in love. She handles many of the feeding & walks on her own and
loves to play with her and show her off to friends. Alex is not the only one to
have totally fallen for this darling dog. Not sure who is more smitten with
Cricket – Rick or me. Rick calls several times a day when at work to check on
her and she frequently jumps in his lap when he comes home. I feel like a new Mom
again and love to cuddle & play with her. I have to catch myself if I’m
bragging too much about my sweet, sweet puppy. Did I mention that Cricket is
gifted? Oh yes. She is. We’ve been having her little paw ring the
bell on the door before going out since day one. We were shocked when at least
3-4 times in the last week, she rang the bell by herself and she got down to
business immediately after we took her out! Rick has taught her to sit, lie
down, high five, and come and she definitely knows her name. As I said… gifted. Life is good with Cricket."
Pam, Rick, Alex & Cricket
"We've had Cody in our lives for two and a half weeks and we are
loving him! Cody is the most mild
mannered of all the puppies in his class and played well with all the puppies and had a great time.
Cody does really well at
quietly sleeps in the crate all night and he has had NO accidents in his crate!
We are doing really well. Cody is wonderful and we'll probably
be a repeat customer perhaps next year to get a friend for Cody."
" I love this
dog!!! Johnny Cash is so smart and fun. We built him his own little pen in the back
yard and he's mastered going to the bathroom there and only there. He fits
right in with our family. The kids love him so much! Benicio has taken on a lot
of responsibility with Johnny Cash. He walks him and he stays right by his side.
He sits on Benicio's lap in the car and sometimes they fall asleep together.
Their bond is already very strong. Johnny Cash has been very therapeutic for
him. He loves the water, we've been to the beach a few times with him. He's
been eating very well......and growing quickly! You were right, everyone
loves him, especially our family. He's been my little buddy too. When the kids
go to bed, we play around for a while until he gets tired and lies down in his
spot in front of the fireplace. He likes it there because the marble floor is
nice and cool. Benicio gave him a mini soccer ball that he loves- he's learned
how to fetch it and bring it back. I could go on but I just wanted to let you
know how much we love him and what a beautiful dog he is- both in looks and
our wonderful dog Rudy (Moxie & Rembrandt's
pup). Our son has been having horrible
nightmares about Monsters for weeks and getting
up at night and turning on every light in our
house! We decided to let Rudy sleep with him
thinking it might help if he was there with
him. On the first night Alex didn't get up once...RUDY
SAVED THE DAY! He has brought so much
joy to our house...watching him snuggle on the
couch with the kids...he is such a great dog.
We couldn't have asked for a better pet. Thank
you for holding onto him for us. We couldn't
"Just a quick note to tell you Lily met her sister, Lexx,
this morning!! We're back from Maine where she had a great summer and
is adjusting to 'city life' on a leash. She's 16 pounds now and as you said
will be on the shy side we think of 25. We love having her and thank you again
for launching us!"
Debbie and John
am beside myself in love with this boy! We went to the
vet today and they were quite impressed with Tip of
the Shore and Finn. He is a healthy happy pup. Thanks
for the great start. I am eternally grateful for the
treasure you have given our family."
"I wanted to
send you a note to say hi and let you know that our boy Otis is fabulous. Words
can’t describe how much we love him. Thank you for such a great gift. Not a
day goes by without the kids hugging and telling him that he is 'the best dog
EVER.' He is just awesome. He has a
great personality – very funny and playful. Don’t be surprised if
you get another message from me in the spring about being put on a list for a
sister for Otis."
