Berrybrook Testimonials

Millie and Murray with Mom

Where to even begin? I Know I express my gratitude for you and this program through daily Millie pictures, but in reality it’s also because words cannot do it justice. Your ability to listen, then read people, then guide them to the right dog for their situation is truly remarkable. Your passion for it all shines through above all else... I mean, why else would you deal with the poop storms of week 6/7, wheelbarrow walks at 2am, or the bossy "I want a 17Ib phantom. do you have one?" In all Seriousness, it’s so clear you put your heart and soul into ethically matching families with their heart dogs.
Thank you for giving us the pup that started our family, thank you for following along for the highs and lows, and now, thank you for giving us the next piece of our puzzle... M&M are going to be an amazing pair. Grateful for your friendstup & generosity.

-Kala, Andy, Mille (and now Murray) S.


After two years with our first dog, Oakley, we decided it was time to get her a sibling. We were extremely particular about choosing the right breeder as we didn’t get Oakley from a great place. One of our biggest concerns with Oakley has always been how we don’t know much about her background or any health issues she might be predisposed to. Going through this process the right way was extremely important to us. 


Our friend Kala over at @milliethecitydood recommended us to Abbie and after that we never looked back. Abbie won us over immediately. The passion she has and care she takes to run a responsible breeding program is unmatched and quite honestly doesn’t compare to most doodle breeders. From her guardian dog program, to her commitment to zero shelters, to her temperament matching, you can tell how much Abbie cares about making her families happy while also ensuring her puppies are going to the right home.


The entire process was so easy and Abbie was so helpful throughout it all. I particularly loved how Abbie explains in great detail the traits each pairing will produce and what different genetic markers mean. This was so helpful when narrowing down what litter we wanted to be on.


We could not be happier with our decision to use Berrybrook and can’t believe how perfect Barnaby is. Barnaby and Oakley are best friends and it is a dream come true for us that they get along so well. Not only is he extremely smart and intuitive (we think he’s actually a human), but he's also the sweetest thing. He is so affectionate and loves to cuddle. He’s especially attached to his hooman dad and sleeps curled up to him every night. He’s also a superstar athlete and loves to swim. While it took Oakley a full summer to really love swimming, Barnaby loved it from day one. He has no fear jumping into the pool and sprints right into the ocean. He is so incredible that we are considering adding a third to our family and it will definitely be from Abbie and Berrybrook!!!

"Abbie I don’t even know where to start except that I’m so glad we listened (to your recommendation to consider not a solid red dog.)


He is EVERYTHING we hoped for & more. 


I always want to tell everyone not to sleep on the white puppies or the partis. Because their glow up is SO REAL. 


He is the perfect fit to our family. My constant companion. My daughter’s snuggle bug. Our son’s favorite play mate. 


Finn knows when we’re sad, or sick, or down - and he doesn’t leave that persons side. 


Hell, even the cat loves him. 


My kids love him so much they have asked to get Berrybrook puppies for their college gifts (and we’re still 5 years away, ha ha) so they have a companion at school. 


My 13 year old follows you on instagram and tracks every litter. She’s constantly trying to get me to add another family member. 


And finally, I never told you this. But the only reason we ever started looking at Doodles was because of you. It wasn’t just the doodle - it was the whole experience. Knowing that our dog was coming from a HOME. Where he played with toys & met other kids & took field trips before ever coming home. 


The only thing I’d ever do differently is invest in the training. (ha ha) We have worked very hard at it & our bond is amazing. But it would have been great to already have the foundation to build on. 


The next one will for sure.

“I’ve never ever had a pup like this.
She acts as if she’s been here her whole life.
She confident and comfortable.
She goes in and out of the crate on her own.
She knows her name and comes immediately.
Pees and poops outside.
I wasn’t too thrilled getting up at 5:30am but she was waiting wagging her tail and went right outside.
None of my other doodles have ever been this advanced.  No fear, no hiding, it’s incredible.
Your breeding dogs are absolutely amazing.
I can’t thank you enough and I couldn’t possibly love her more.

Put me down for 5 more please.”

"I’m serious now
I’ve never seen a pup adjust as quickly as Rox. She know her name. She sees when I’m not looking and runs to the big dog food.  She knows she shouldn’t because she runs away when she sees me. She’s completely comfortable around both dogs and the two of us.

You really are even better than your reputation which is excellent!"

I was extremely particular when it came to choosing a breeder for my puppy, and honestly a little nervous. A puppy is an extension to your family and I wanted to make sure he would be able to adapt as our family and lifestyle grew. I decided to work backwards and reach out to owners who had extremely well mannered, and of course beautiful, Australian labradoodles. The rave reviews I received for Berrybrook sealed the deal. 


From the beginning you can tell Abbie has a heart of gold and wants what is best for every single dog above all else. The program she has built with well tempered, healthy dogs is incredible. Any kind of resource or support you need, you have it. Abbie partners with a puppy training program that is done online and helps prepare you for each stage of raising a puppy which helped immensely. Because I was so particular about which breeder I wanted to work with I was willing to look out of state. The flight nanny team that works with Abbie are so sweet, communicative and accommodating. They did all the leg work and delivered our sweet boy to our arms at the airport! What more could you ask for?!


This was our first time raising a puppy in the city and I am absolutely amazed every single day how seamlessly Champ fits into our lifestyle. The sirens, trains, cars and all the busy city noises have never, ever bothered him. He’s the smartest boy I know and LOVES to work and learn. Champ is our heart and soul and we can’t thank Abbie, the guardian homes, and everyone within the Berrybrook community enough for the support and perfect puppy. Don’t lose my number - Champ may need a sibling in a few years!

We took this picture today on the way home from Reagan Airport.  This sign in Tyson, VA always reminds me of Greensboro NC where I met the hubby and fell in love. So its fitting this was a spot to take one of Jinnys first pics!  I want to say thank you so much for taking care of us!  You didn’t just try to make a transaction happen….from the first moment we talked I knew this lady really cares!!!! We will always be family now because through you, you have provided our new baby.  

She is so well behaved and cared for already and literally just fits right in our family.  We heart you so much for giving us a chance to love on her more!

Everyone she comes in contact with says she is so well behaved and has the best manners.

Berrybrook will always be a part of our family. Abbie truly is the best.

Berrybrook Doodles testimonial

Abbie raises beautiful, smart, confident and well socialized puppies! She matched us with the perfect puppy for our household. Knowing that our puppy would be coming home to a house with two large dogs, she chose a dog who was confident enough to hold her own and not be intimidated. Abbie thinks of everything, right down to playing loud fireworks and thunderstorm sounds so they won't be scared of them later on. Puppies are raised in her home, around lots of people and daily activity. I can't recommend Berrybrook Doodles enough!

Absolutely the most ethical, caring and friendly breeder. All their dogs are not only gorgeous, but smart and SO well tempered. The dogs they use for breeding are sent to guardian homes where they get to live and be loved as pets/family members, so they’re never given up as an adult after they’re done having puppies. Love that about Berrybrook, among other things!
