"We feel so blessed to have become a part of the Destination Doodles family. We are so in love with our Cavapoo puppy. He has brought so much joy into our home. Marianne was so great to work with from the beginning. As soon as puppies became available, she was in continuous contact with us. She was always available for any questions. We loved following the growth of each litter through her Instagram account and it became very clear that she raises each of these puppies as if they were her own. It is very apparent that our puppy grew up in a loving, nurturing home. He immediately settled into our family routine and has been sleeping 8-10 hours a night from day one. Amazing!! He isn’t phased by the vacuum cleaner, fireworks, or thunderstorms, which I attribute to Marianne’s diligent exposure of the puppies to different sounds at a young age. He is the most loving and sweet little boy. I can’t say enough about Destination Doodles. They really do raise the cutest, sweetest, most well adjusted puppies."
"Destination Doodles exceeded all expectations with our new mini goldendoodle! Marianne's communication from day one was something we were so grateful for. She quickly became our trusted resource as we prepared to bring our puppy home. Our anticipation built with each update on how she and the rest of the litter was growing and developing. As soon as we took her home it was evident how much time, energy and effort was poured into her life already. The New Puppy Guide that Marianne created was such a helpful resource! We could not be more thankful for the smooth transition of our puppy into our home. Marianne is a true expert when it comes to raising and caring for your new doodle and we can't say enough good things about her and Destination Doodles."

"Destination Doodles truly go above and beyond in every way! Not only getting us our dream dog, but setting us up for success as first time parents. Marianne has been there for us every step of the way, she puts immense care and love into each puppy and it shows. Our dog is friendly, confident, well behaved, and absolutely adorable. Could not ask for a better experience, from start to finish!"

"Our experience with destination doodles was amazing! Our sweet puppy 🐶 Angel is exactly what we had hoped for. The entire process from day 1 was fun, clear, and exciting. Marianne was sending us updates through out the whole process which kept the excitement going. It was also nice because we felt very prepared before we even got our dog. The amazon links helped us get the right things, and once we showed up we were blown away by their kindness!"

"I cannot say enough good things about Destination Doodles. I spent countless hours searching for the perfect breeder and I’m so grateful to have found this one!! They truly love and care for each and every puppy as their own. The amount of effort put into being responsible, ethical breeders with happy, healthy puppies, and mom & dad dogs is unmatched! Marianne has been very responsive since the beginning, throughout the whole process, and even after taking my puppy home! Absolutely worth the wait and every penny."

"From the very first moment of contacting Marianne (Destination Doodles) I knew it was going to be good. Any time I had a question, I could text or call and always received a response very soon after. We had to wait awhile after putting our deposit down and when I reached back out(a year+ later), Marianne never hesitated that we couldn’t be put back on a waiting list. When I got the text that a litter had been born that we could pick from, Marianne did so much to make sure it was the right pick for us. From pictures, to videos, to texts, etc. she answered any and every question. I could also tell how much they love their puppies, all of them. After getting our precious girl, I could see how loved she was at Destination Doodles and how much time and effort they put into these babies beginning of life. Crate training was basically already done, and potty training was a breeze. If we ever want another puppy, we will 100% be getting another from DD, and recommend them to anyone we see or talk to. We are forever thankful and grateful for Marianne and everyone at Destination Doodles!"

"We absolutely love Destination Doodles. We can't say enough great things about Marianne.
Marianne was amazing with my family and I throughout this entire journey. She is very caring and loving towards all her puppies. If you are looking for a goldendoodle we highly recommend Destination Doodles. They are very trustworthy. We were on the waiting list for a few months but the process went by so quickly and well worth the wait! We were able to find the perfect doodle for our family. Marianne was always in communication with us whether it was on social media, text messages, phone calls or facetime. She was very caring and helped us with any questions we had from puppy selection all the way until the day we got our puppy flown into Miami. We couldn't be happier. Our puppy Ella was from Miyas litter and she was well worth the wait. Marianne does a fantastic job preparing the pups for when they come home from sleeping through the night in their crates to the potty training. When Ella arrived home with us it made the process that much easier. No need to think twice with Destination Doodles."
"Highly recommend Destination Doodles and Marianne. Our baby Myla was well worth the wait! Marianne takes such good care of these pups and is there every step of the way to answer questions and be there for any concerns. The quality of care that Marianne puts into this business and the puppies is beyond anything I have seen, thats why I was okay with waiting as long as I did. The puppies are her life and they are so loved! Myla came to us with no issues with sleeping through the whole night in her crate and was a breeze potty training! I am already trying to convince my husband for a 2nd puppy! I can not say enough good things about my experience!"
"I highly recommend Destination Doodles! We just picked up our puppy last Wednesday. Although the waitlist is long, it is well worth it. Marianne and her family take amazing care of the puppies, she documents everything on Instagram. She is extremely trustworthy, attentive and helpful. She answers all of our additional puppy questions and is amazingly caring. I cannot recommend her more, if you want a goldendoodle, she is the best breeder. All of her puppies are cute, sweet and well mannered. We drove from California to Utah and saw the national parks beforehand. It was a wonderful trip and I couldn't be happier with the gift we brought home.

“We cannot recommend Destination Doodles enough. This wonderful family really goes above and beyond for their puppies. They raise their dogs in their lovely home in Utah and really devotes their time to caring for individual mamas and their pups. Marianne is sweet and was and still is there for us every step of our journey as new puppy parents. Our puppy Mason (Miya’s pup) has been very easy to train, is so loving, and well tempered all thanks to Marianne and her family. If you’re looking for a breeder for a golden doodle puppy, Destination Doodles is worth the wait."

“Highly recommend Destination Doodles. Marianne is so amazing and does a wonderful job with these puppies. She starts these puppies off on a great start, with crate and potty training. I can’t thank her enough, because she does so it’s been a smooth transition with our sweet pup. Marianne is always in communication during the process and afterwards. Hoping for a playmate for our sweet pup soon, Destination Doodles is definitely worth it!!”
"We absolutely love Destination Doodles and highly recommend them. We weren't sure about investing as much as we have into our golden doodle, but he has been well worth it. The owner, Marianne, was wonderful to work with from start to finish. These puppies are raised in their home and loved on everyday as if they were keeping all puppies as their own. Rudy came home a week ago at 8 weeks of age. Since then he has been sleeping through the night in his crate, learned how to sit, and is almost completely potty trained. We are in shock of how much time and effort this family spent to get these puppies ready to go to their new homes and be successful. If you are seeking a breeder for a new puppy, look no further than Destination Doodles."
"We love her so much!! She has the best personality and disposition!!! We can't thank Destination Doodles enough for the wonderful job they did with these puppies!!!"
"As I was looking for my first pup, I had the pleasure of speaking with Marianne at Destination Doodes. She is an absolute joy, is truly experienced & KNOWS about dogs! She is honest, transparent and truly cares which is important! Though the timing didn’t work out on my end (I’m bummed!), I would highly recommend Marianne. She talked to me about her dogs, answered ALL of my millions of questions and just made me feel at ease as looking for a breeder as a first time puppy owner is overwhelming. I 100% hope to get a pup from her in the future and would recommend ANYONE looking for a goldendoodle or cavapoo to make Destination Doodles their first stop."
