We purchased a male English Cream Golden Retriever on 9-17-18 from the Troyer Family. We live 4 hrs away from the breeders and the communication was fantastic, and still is to this day. You can tell they have love for their dogs. Our dogs' temperament is sweet and calm, and great disposition. 5 stars all the way around. He's a great addition to our family.

We had such a wonderful experience with Merlin and Ray! We live in Austin so weren't able to visit before purchasing our puppy. They gladly and quickly answered MANY emails full of questions and sent pictures/videos of our little guy in the weeks leading up to us getting him. I also liked that they asked me questions. Showed me they cared about who would be raising one of their puppies. We have had our adorable mini Bernedoodle for almost two weeks and we are overjoyed with him! In fact, we have raved about him and our experience so much that some friends of ours here in Austin have one of his brothers arriving today! We can't wait for these sweet brothers to grow up having play dates. He is a smart, healthy, and came to us very well-socialized. Parley (aka Dakota) has been a wonderful addition to our family. Can't say enough about how great our experience has been!

We bought our beautiful English Cream Golden puppy "Flash", from Merlin Troyer. He is so very sweet, loving, & gentle. He has an absolutely great personality! We had a great experience with purchasing from Merlin. Our puppy arrived safely & with all of his records organized and up to date. He was easy to get ahold of & always replies back promptly with whatever I was inquiring about. Since I am a Registered Veterinary Technician, we checked him out thoroughly before going with this breeder. He is outstanding & his puppies are of high quality with amazing dispositions. Also, both parents are AKC registered & the puppy's AKC registration papers came with him also. I would highly recommend him. I would definitely purchase a puppy from him again & am glad we did.

I would 10/10 recommend buying a puppy from Merlin. Bailey is a very beautiful little girl. She loves being with people and you can tell she's been very well cared for. You can tell she is healthy by looking at her. Merlin answered all my questions I had before buying her. I am very pleased that I was able to find this great of a dog.    Thanks.

We just celebrated our beautiful English Cream's 2nd birthday yesterday. We love his gentle spirit and his lovable nature. We would highly recommend buying off of Merlin. We will be buying our next one from him for sure. Merlin is very organized and had all his papers in order. Keep up the great work.

5 stars! Couldn't be happier with my experience buying from this breeder! I recently bought the most beautiful husky pup, she was very well priced and came with all the expected paperwork. They were a pleasure to work with and you can tell that these puppies have been well loved before being picked up to go their forever home! Would absolutely recommend!


Merlin was extremely helpful from the very beginning. He was quick to respond to my emails and was glad to answer any questions I had. He even sent me pictures of the dame and sire which was nice. After a day of successful communication, my sister and I made the near 6-hour drive from Maryland to Ohio to meet my new Goberian pup. When we arrived we were greeted with a playpen and a couple pups out in the yard. Merlin was very knowledgeable and had all the proper paperwork at the ready. My sister is a veterinary technician, and even she was impressed with the level of care all of his dogs were given. When it was time to take my little guy home, Merlin sent us off with some puppy chow and a request to keep in touch and send pictures of my new friend as he grew. You could absolutely feel the love he has for these dogs and that he genuinely cares not just about how they are brought up under his care, but after they find a new home as well. I would highly recommend working with Merlin if you are interested in any of the breeds he offers. Well worth the 12+ hours spent on the road. Thanks, Merlin!
