We got out mini goldendoodle, Ruby, in May of 2020. She is just the best. She is so sweet and just loves attention. She is playful while also willing to chill with us on the couch. She was potty-trained in a day and she hardly ever barks (unless she sees a squirrel - she'll get one someday). She loves walks, treats and playing. She sleeps on her back with her legs straight up in the air so we can rub her belly. She sits on top of our couch cushions like a cat. She also sleeps on top of my head at night. We are so lucky to have this ridiculous puppy in our lives.

My husband & I purchased out mini bermedoodle, Cleo (originally named Wonder on the website) in Jan of 2021. Over the past 10 months she has been the best dog and the light of our lives. Everyone at Woodlot was so great, sent tons of pictures, answered all of my questions and was just a pleasure to work with during the process. I ended up recommending woodlot to my best friend and they also purchased a puppy from her around the same time. Best decision we ever made!
We got our Dory mini F1 Goldendoodle blue Merle girl. She is just the sweetest girl. Thank you xo
We had such a positive experience with Woodlot Companions!!! Our Rubi girl (originally Rhea) mini bernedoodle has become such a quick member of our family and she is truly the sweetest! Vet said she’s perfect and I’m a big fan of her cuddly nature. I’m so excited to watch her grow! We live in CT so we were able to arrange to have her dropped off right to our door and Gladys made the process so easy! Our Rubi is such a happy and sweet puppy, I can tell she came well loved ❤️
We are beyond happy with Woodlot Companion! My husband drove 3.5 hours to pick up our English Cream Golden Retriever boy, now named Remington. The entire transaction was amazing and smooth! The puppies are so well cared for and happy! Remingtons demeanor is so calm and relaxed. He loves on his new older sister and their dynamic is great! We took Remi to the vet the next day and the vet was very impressed with his health. He said he is in stellar health. If we ever want another retriever we know where to go! Woodlot are top notch breeders! We can’t thank you enough!

I got my mini goldendoodle, Teddy (now named Jaxon), in December 2020 and he has been my partner in crime ever since. Jaxon turned 1 on October 13th 2021! I could ask for a better puppy. I swear he is the happiest, goofiest, most loving dog of all time. I took him to college with me and we are having the time of our lives. I get so many compliments and questions about him and what breeder he’s from. He has become an amazing addition to my life and my friends and family’s lives. The process of getting Jaxon was so easy and communication was great. I am so happy I purchased my puppy from here; I got my forever friend.
Great breeder. They really care about their puppies. Our Bernese Mountain Dog couldn't be sweeter and her markings are perfect. I highly recommend this breeder.

Ollie (born Easton) is such an awesome dog. We have had him for a year now are so delighted to have him in our family (that goes for the humans and the other dogs). He is everything one expects in a golden retriever but is even more. He is so smart that he knows (and generally follows) basic commands without us ever training him. He has so much personality and endearing behaviors that he always has everybody charmed and laughing. His love of his family is palpable. He has speed and stamina. And, of course, he is a very handsome boy. Gladys was a pleasure to deal with. She was always available to answer all our questions and guide us through the process, including puppy choice, and stayed in touch after adoption to make sure everything was okay. Everything was handled pleasantly and professionally. I recommend Woodlot Companions very highly!
- Dan T.
We are so happy with our experience with Woodlot Companions! On June 16 we picked our sweet little girl, Arya, up. We renamed her Georgie to match our Stevie. The communication between Woodlot Companions and our home, every step of the way, was much appreciated. We just love our little girl and would definitely get another puppy from Woodlot Companions if and when the time comes for Georgie to have a companion. Thank you!

I’m so in love with my mini goldendoodle.Gladys is the best, they were so professional educated and love the dogs I could not be more happy!

I purchased my mini sheepadoodle, Bogey, from Woodlot Companions in December 2020. He turns 9 months old this week and he is extremely smart and well-tempered. He loves people, walks, treats, and the dog park. Such a fun addition.
- Paul D.
We have had our mini bernedoodle for over a year and he is wonderful and so cute. Woodlot was a pleasure to adopt our dog from, and we highly recommend them for your perfect family pet.

Willow joined our family this summer! She is an absolute joy & we love her so much! Ray & Gladys couldn't have been easier to work with & we HIGHLY recommend them if you are looking for a quality breeder. From my initial inquiry online, Gladys & I spoke on the phone & she answered all of my questions about their business & the upcoming litters. I had a good feeling in my heart that they were honest & took great pride in their dogs. Gladys was always a text away & always updated me on the status of the litter. Once they were born, Ray sent pictures & videos on email as well as on their website. Before we chose Willow, we had an hour long phone call with their dog trainer, who temperament tested all of the puppies in the litter. In this phone call, we discussed our family's lifestyle & she gave us her recommendation as to which puppies she felt would best suit us. She was great & we've had Willow home 6 weeks now, & the temperament is still quite accurate! We live in Pittsburgh & were traveling to Columbus a few weeks before Willow's pick-up date, & Ray & Gladys allowed us to stop by to see Willow in person. We so appreciated this & when we saw their beautiful grounds, spotless facilities, & met in person, we just knew this was the right choice! The Troyers truly love each puppy & have a passion for what they do. Willow had her first appointment with our vet recently, & the vet said what a good-looking, quality, healthy puppy she was. Thank you Ray & Gladys for Willow.

Our family had been looking for a Mini Bernedoodle for over a year. My husband came across Woodlot Companions and we immediately fell in love with (Jimmi), what we hoped to be our future puppy. We reached out to Gladys and she was more than happy to answer all of our questions. Next, we caught a flight to Cleveland, rented a car, and drove to meet our new puppy, Maverick. He was such a happy puppy. Very playful and loving at the same time. We had an 11 hour drive ahead of us to get home. He was a dream in the car. We had potty and stretch breaks every 2-3 hours. Otherwise, he slept the entire trip. Gladys checked in on us the next day to make sure we made it home safely. And has continued to do so every so often. We of course can't help but send her an occasional picture to let her know how happy we are with Maverick. He is now 4 months old and so full of personality. He greets us with sloppy kisses the moment any of us gets home. He has brought a lot of joy and laughter to our household. A big thanks to Gladys and her family for making our experience so rewarding.

We purchased Hank as a surprise for our boys in California. He has been so gentle, sweet and just a part of our family. We had a good experience with the breeder answering our questions to fly him to LAX. We couldn't ask for a better dog!

I brought my English Cream Golden Retriever baby girl, Visenya (was Laine) home about 2 weeks ago. My husband & I were just discussing how extremely intelligent she is...she knows "leave it", "sit", "get your toy" & of course, "no" "ah-ah" etc. We have an English Cream Lab and he is smart, but Visenya is BRILLIANT, once or twice and she has it! Not only that, but Gladys works with and KNOWS her babies! The description is accurate. It is OBVIOUS, when you bring home a Woodlot Companion, that they are bred to be exactly that. They are familiar with having their feet, ears etc touched... familiar with a family environment and responsive to people... clearly NOT "kennel babies" this is SO important in puppy rearing & is underestimated by even the best breeders...but not by Woodlot. I cannot recommend Gladys & Merlin strongly enough, I have shown dogs of many breeds, all my life & have never brought home a puppy so young that has been so we'll prepared for it's new home. I do not give this recommendation lightly and every word is from the heart. If you have hesitated, hesitate no longer. Contact Woodlot, you will not be sorry. They are kind and open and breed amazing dogs. You can trust them.
- Heather T
Our experience with Woodlot Companions was incredible! We live out of state but Gladys was so kind and went above and beyond to make sure all our questions were answered. She kept us informed and sent us photos and videos of our pup each week. Everyone we meet says that he is the best looking dog they have ever seen and they are right! Our pup is a wonderful addition to our family and we will absolutely return once we are ready for another. We would most definitely recommend Woodlot Companions!!
- Alison K
I've had dogs my entire life but my family would always get them from local breeders in CA. This is was my first time getting a dog out of state from a breeder I knew nothing about but I have to tell you our family couldn't be happier! When we saw little "Lakers" face, now Banksy we knew we had to have him join our family. When I called and spoke to Gladys she was an absolute delight. She was patient and thorough and you could tell she's been doing this for some time. She never pressured me at any point and welcomed me to even have a conversation with Kimberly their pet behavior specialist. I spoke to Kimberly who made sure this sheepadoodle was going to be the right fit. She described his personality and told me what to expect. They made me very comfortable in my decision to get the dog. The transportation of the dog to CA was easy and Gladys kept me informed. He arrived as healthy and happy as can be, and he's one of the cutest sheepadoodle puppies I have ever seen! Woodlot Companions is the way to go!
- Margot I
Got our English Cream Golden about 3 weeks ago and couldn't be happier. Drove all the way from the suburbs of Chicago and was well worth it. Communication was great, received videos of our puppy and were updated about vet check. Overall great experience at Woodlot Companions, very happy we found them- our pup is amazing!
We just brought home our Goberian puppy and safe to say we are in love. She is super friendly and cuddly with the prettiest blue eyes and is so good with our kids. She gets along well with our golden too! The breeders shared video with us so we could watch her grow while we anxiously awaited brining her home. They live on a beautiful piece of land in Ohio and were so easy to work with. Highly recommend!
I cant thank you guys enough for such a wonderful little pup!! You all have been amazing! The videos, quick responses, any concerns to ease my mind etc. And meeting my little guy ,you can tell how much time you put into your puppies. Such sweet personalities, socialized and and full of love!! Thank you so much for this amazing little guy!!!
- Christine B
I purchased my mini sheepadoodle from Gladys in November and it was the best experience. She responded the same day and immediately scheduled a call with me. Her team set me up with a puppy that fit all our needs. Blu is now 6 months old and is full of love! He is friendly, sweet, great with kids and very handsome. Every time we walk him on the street people stop us and admire his beautiful blue eye! I look forward to buying more puppies from Gladys!
- Tracy N
We got our Goberian puppy a year ago and he’s been an absolute doll. He’s just what was expected, the property and family are beautiful and the communication from them is amazing. Thank you for providing our family with such a loving dog.
- Kristin M
2nd pup from Gladys and her crew. I live in northern California, so a flight was involved. Professional all the way. 1st was English cream Retriever and now a Mini Sheepadoodle. Great smart dogs. Easy training eager pups. Wonder what we may add to the collection next. Thanks Woodlot.
- Ringo and Harrison
We had such a great experience with woodlot companions! Our English Cream has been the perfect addition to our family! The process was smooth, with weekly updates, pictures, and videos. Any time I contacted the breeders, I received a prompt response. Millie (Biscuit) was ready to go December 3rd, but the breeders kept her an additional 3 weeks so that we could surprise our kids Christmas morning. What a magical holiday!!
- Jaimie Wotell
We got Pepper (Khloe) back in February. Nine months and a newborn baby later, she’s the best puppy we could ever ask for. She’s got the best disposition, sweetest personality and she’s such a fast learner. Everywhere we go, we are constantly getting questions or compliments on her. Gladys kept in constant contact with us, answering questions, sending videos and she was so pleasant to work with. We highly recommend Woodlot companions, we know the pups are treated with a whole lot of love before going to their forever homes. The next pomsky we get will definitely be from them again.
2 months ago we brought home sweet Aria, a beautiful English cream golden retriever. Aria is such a good pup, she is smart and a fast learner. She immediately adjusted to her crate, was able to follow some basic commands after just a few days, and after about one month hardly had any potty accidents at home. She’s friendly and loving, has a good temperament, and she brought so much joy to our lives! Woodlot companions were wonderful! Gladys was so helpful from the first contact. We are first timers and Gladys walked me through the process and answered every question. She welcomed a visit and showed me other pups and the parents. All the dogs seemed happy and healthy and very well taken care of! Gladys even followed up a couple of times just to ask how the adjustment is going and how was the vet visit. Overall, we had a great experience with Woodlot and I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a great and healthy pup. We can’t thank you enough for our sweet Aria.
Our experience with Woodlot Companions was amazing! They were always there to answer questions, send us pictures and videos. I’m extremely pleased with them and would definitely contact them if I ever wanted to add to our family again. :)
I have always wanted a puppy and when I found a mini Bernedoodle from Woodlots Companions, I fell in love instantly and knew that this pup was the one. I was quite nervous as I have never raised a puppy by myself before, especially during this unpredictable time. When I reached out to Woodlots Companions, they could not have been nicer and responded so quickly. They answered all my crazy new mommy questions and made me feel very comfortable taking home a new pup. The process was seamless and given my schedule, it was very helpful that my new pup was driven directly to my home. Taking new pup, Murphy, home was the best decision I have made and I am so thankful for Woodlots Companions for their support and sending me home with a great pup!
- Alex Manaco
Our experience with Woodlot Companions was exceptional. We were looking to welcome our first puppy into our home and had done hours upon hours of research on what breed we were looking for. When we decided on a Pomsky, the real search began to find a breeder that genuinely put the animals first. We looked into quite a few that were quite apparently "puppy mills" & quite honestly were ready to table the idea of getting a puppy much to our young son's disappointment. I was determined and gave it one more try. That's when we came across Balto. I did the research & from what I was reading, Woodlot appeared to be just the breeders we were looking for. I immediately messaged them and they replied very quickly, she even jumped on a quick call at 8:30 at night to discuss what they were about and address a couple questions. She then made time for us to come the following day and even agreed to hold him for 24 hours so we could meet him before we made our decision and put down the deposit. We went and met him the next day & absolutely fell in love. We were very close to putting a deposit on 2 puppies as a matter of fact! After putting down the deposit, the breeders were amazing at sending video updates of Balto playing outside and with his brothers and sisters. We looked forward to getting them. After we brought him home, he was having some digestive issues. Again, Woodlot was VERY responsive and gave me many solutions to help the issue. It has since been resolved & they even followed up later to ask if everything was good. We hope they stay around for years to come so we have the chance to purchase from them again. Thank you so very much, Woodlot Companions!!

Our amazing pup is now a year old today and she was the best decision my fiancé and I decided on. Formerly known as Tallie, now Vixen, quickly became part of our family. We researched to find a 1st generation Pomsky which we found with Woodlot Companions. They were so helpful and informative with the weeks and days leading up to picking our little Vix up, even video and photo updates! We definitely recommend them if you are trying to find a healthy and loving pet to become your family. We will even use them in the future when we decide to expand with another pup!
- Ashley Wojciechowski
Gladys and Merlin were very kind and helpful when answering questions about the puppies! We brought home Stryker now known as Bear. He is from the June 5th litter of Mini Golden doodles. He is a wonderful addition to our family. He is very playful and loving, and his coat is soft as can be! He is very playful and loving. He came home in excellent health, our vet was very pleased with his health at his first exam. He is growing leaps and bounds. He loves to be loved! Thank you so much for our little Bear!
- Carol Boyce
We got our beautiful pomsky boy, Togo, from Gladys and we could not be happier. He is adorable and he is just what our Sky needed to keep her company. I highly recommend Woodlot Companions!!
- Tina Stassi
We got our Goberian from Woodlot Companians in 2020, and we could not be any happier with our pup. She is so sweet, calm, fun and playful. We have young children, and she does so well with them. We were able to visit the puppies when they were four weeks old, and they were all very clean and healthy. We are so grateful to have such a great dog. Would definitely recommend this breeder to friends and family
- Bridget Piazza
We had such a wonderful experience with this sweet family. They were in constant communication with us during the final weeks leading up to us picking up our beautiful puppy. Our English Cream Golden, Hawk, is 6 months old now and he’s absolutely wonderful. We can’t imagine life without him.

We never had a dog before and with two kids in college and my youngest still at home, we contemplated getting a puppy…and then because of COVID we knew we could be home to put in the time to care for and train a puppy. We researched English Cream Golden Retrievers and found Woodlot Companions! I called, and without even leaving a message, Gladys called me right back! I told her we were interested in Lilah (previously Layla) and proceeded to ask her a million questions because this was all so new to us. She was so incredibly patient answering every single text/email…and even with all the puppies she had to care for, she took the time to respond to my request to take/send me updated videos of Lilah. When we finally met Gladys and Merlin in person, we witnessed what calm, patient and professional people they are….and I knew that Lilah had benefitted from it. In fact, her very first day home she was able to learn to "sit" and to go into her crate on command! This was after me - a first time dog owner - training her for a short period of time!? The next day, she could also lay down, stay, and come to me on command! She was so naturally motivated / LOVED "training", yet also had the absolute sweetest, calm disposition. By 10 weeks she could sleep through the night, and at 13 weeks started using "bells" to let us know when she needed to "potty" throughout the day. We all talk about how lucky we were to get such a good dog, but in all honesty we know that the environment that Lilah was bred and raised in is what made her the calm, trainable, friendly puppy she is today….and one that stops people all the time to remark on how beautiful she is and what gorgeous coloring she has. I highly recommend Woodlot Companions, they breed truly amazing dogs and are an absolute pleasure to work with! (The pic of her is on her second day home, in her proud "sit" position :)
- Laura Watters
Gladys was just the BEST she was professional and caring for all the puppies. She went about and beyond and always answered our question and email with extreme knowledge of the puppy and send video and update on the veterinarian visit. Thank you so much Gladys!!!
- Mary Padovano
When we first started looking for our English cream golden retriever, Sylver,we had done a lot of web browsing and Woodlot Companions got our attention immediately. The website itself is nothing but first rate with a vast amount of information about the history of the breeder and the easiness of looking at the different breeds of dogs they raise. Along with their delightful and expert customer relations with their clients in our opinion they definitely stand above the rest of breeders The number one reason was the communication aspect. Any time we had a question, they were right there for us. We never had to wait days on end to get a response. The day we picked up Sylver, we got to meet Gladys and Merlin and they were awesome! They are very down to earth people and you can tell right away the love and care they have for their animals. We traveled from Pittsburgh to Millersburg, Ohio about 2.5 hours to pick up our Sylver and we've had nothing but joy and happiness with our newest member of the family.

We decided to purchase (more like adopt) two brothers from Woodlot Companions back in March. I traveled up from Florida to their beautiful home in Ohio to pick up the boys. Merlin and Gladys were amazing and super helpful with information, tips and recommendations. They provided all the health records and shared them with my local vet down in Florida. A visit with my vet upon return to Florida proved the pups were in excellent health. Needless to say, the pups are doing amazing. Very healthy and happy pups with the most wonderful personalities and dispositions. Thank you Merlin and Gladys for helping me add to my family.
So happy to find woodlot companions for our mini goldendoodle! The breeders responded right away when I had questions. Seeing as I live in MA, the process of buying our pup and having him delivered was very easy! I loved that videos were sent along the way! You can tell the puppies are well cared for! He is the most adorable puppy and loves everyone he meets!
We are so happy we used Woodlot Companions to get our beloved sheepadoodle puppy! The breeders were amazing to work with and so helpful and responsive in answering all of our questions since we are new puppy owners. They even sent along a blanket from their home that smelled like the mother to help adjust the puppy to our new home. Our puppy is so well behaved and so sweet. We could not be more pleased with our experience and are so so happy that we chose to get our puppy here!
- Julie Rosenbaum
This is Benny the Goberian! We received him from the good folks at Woodlot March of 2019. From the time we put our deposit down until we picked him up the following week they were nothing but communicative and friendly! We couldn’t have asked for a better puppy. He loves everyone, every animal, and does so well with little children. Thank you so much for our pup!
- Alex and Tracy
We've been searching for a pomsky and feel lucky to have found Woodlot! Our Pomsky Koby, has been such a great addition to our family. The family at Woodlot sent us pictures and videos throughout the entire process. They answered all of our questions and kept us informed. I could tell from our interaction that they care about this work and doing it right. I would highly recommend you start here you will not regret it!!
- Nerma Zrinic
My daughter, Heather purchased a mini bernedoodle from you a year ago. He has just taken all of our hearts! He definitely has his own personality; I even laugh and say he thinks he is a person! Several of our friends have since then purchased a golden doodle and a bernedoodle. My husband and I are now looking for a mini sheepadoodle. It is a very reassuring feeling to know that Woodlot Companions are a fair, honest, clean, and friendly place. The puppies are well cared for.
My fiancé and I flew to Ohio from California just to pick up our Pomsky puppy! Our far distance to a breeder caused natural apprehension but we were not disappointed with Woodlot Companions. The thorough communication from afar made us feel confident to purchase out of state. Gladys was always very prompt to respond to all the questions we had and she constantly kept us up to date about Tucker’s upbringing with photos, videos and growth information. Visiting the property really helped give us peace of mind that we made the right decision to adopt here. I highly recommend Woodlot Companions!
- Elsa Taylor
I was looking for an English cream last October I happened to stumble across this website and I found Cooper when he was 15 weeks old I had no idea who these people were, they were in Ohio and I was in California so I purchased Cooper without visiting and it was the best decision I ever made he is a wonderful dog beautiful best personality and super smart! Brandi Johnson
I fell in love with my Kylo (formally Radar)(Goberian)back in March of 2019 while living overseas. Merlin was so kind throughout the entire process and sent pictures and videos of him. Kylo was flown out to me once I returned to the States and I have been so shocked by his temperament. He is everything a first time dog owner could dream of. Gentle, calm, patient, loving. He is great with other dogs and even more amazing with children. Kylo and I are currently living in Italy now (he is even in training to be a therapy dog) and things are going wonderfully. He is the most happy and perfect boy and I couldn’t thank Woodlot enough for giving me my best friend!

Five-star all the way. I live in Northern California so there was a flight involved from Ohio and bought the puppy sight unseen. Would do again smooth PROFESSIONAL transaction. Gladys and her communication is excellent, picked up the phone on my first call. Sent current videos and pictures of (Logan) . Now known as RINGO the STARR. I feel very lucky to have stumbled across Woodlot Companions. Bought the dog on a Saturday could have got him as soon as Wednesday all flight information and itinerary was given days in advance lots of communication felt comfortable with this transaction from the first phone call. Gladys even helped me through the checkout process. My vet was very impressed with the puppies disposition, demeanor, socialization and as being very smart. Not to mention beautiful, he was the star of the clinic. Ringo is extremely smart very quick to learn. had him completely potty-trained in his new surroundings within a couple days, with 3 minor accidents. Pretty good for a young puppy that just was flown cross the country. I would recommend anybody purchase a puppy from Gladys and her family. They care about their pups and they care about their pups going to good homes. Thanks WOODLOT. !! Our family now knows where to get Quality Pups!
- Michael Blum
I couldn’t be happier with Tessa. I did my research and feel lucky to have found Woodlot and Merlin. From my first conversation with Merlin you could tell he really cares about who adopts his puppies. We drove 8 hours to get Tessa and it was so worth the ride. Tessa has such a sweet temperament and was so easy to train. What really impressed me was Merlin checking in after we brought Tessa home. He really cares and I would highly recommend anyone to adopt from Merlin.
