Lake Mountain Doodle over exceeded my expectations in every way! As a first time dog owner, this breeder was extremely informative and genuinely helped guide me through the process of finding the perfect puppy for me. Lake Mountain Doodle is dedicated to raising healthy and happy puppies that will thrive in their new homes. When I got Blake, she had already had a variety of positive experiences and socialization, which was so fun to follow along with over the weeks leading up to bringing her home. I was able to see pictures and videos my puppy regularly, as well as informational videos on how to best care for her. My doodle has added an unmeasurable amount of joy to my life. I can’t thank Lake Mountain Doodle enough for giving me my perfect adventure buddy! 🤍 T. Gilbert
Making Poppy part of our family was one of the best decisions we have ever made. She really has been a blessing and a delight. As we look around at the experiences of others and our own past experiences we can see that having a puppy can be a really great experience or it can be a bit of a disaster. Good breeding, good training and good temperament are really key to having a great experience with a puppy and Lake Mountain Doodle really excels at all three. Poppy is a beautiful, sweet, loving and obedient pup. She came to us fully potty trained and crate trained and trained in many other ways. She has been a pure delight! It would be accurate to say that my husband and I were some of those ‘least likely to ever get a pet’ kind of people before getting our sweet Poppy. I really never had any desire to get a pet and my husband didn’t want the hassle. We got Poppy for our daughter with a degree of trepidation and anxiety but we have been happily surprised with what a great experience having a puppy has been. Poppy has won our hearts and we couldn’t imagine life without her now. She is truly an important part of our family and she goes almost everywhere with us. She has been such a blessing! I watch my husband come home from a long, stressful day at the office and when our cute puppy greets him with excitement at the door I watch as the stress and worry dissolves into smiles and a relaxed feeling as he plays with Poppy. He is much more relaxed now and Poppy’s biggest fan. He takes her on mini visits to his office and everyone loves her! She is cute, soft, docile and well behaved! He loves taking her on walks. I am converted. I’ve seen this light. I went from never wanting a dog to trying to decide when to get a second pup. The biggest benefit has been for our 21-year-old daughter who has bravely faced a lifetime of a painful and crippling disease - juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Poppy has been a great comfort and amazingly loving fur friend and great distraction from pain for her. As her regular places of exercise and physical therapy have been limited or closed due to covid, Poppy has provided lots of opportunity for activity and exercise for her. When she went to her 3 month check up after having a total shoulder replacement, her doctor was surprised at how well she was doing and said she didn’t need physical therapy! Poppy is such a blessing in so many ways! During the pandemic we have turned almost exclusively to online shopping and curbside pick up. Everyone we have encountered at the curbside pickup is happy to see Poppy. One girl at the Target pick up told us that whenever she sees an order for us she volunteers to bring it out so she can visit Poppy. She has even started carrying treats in her vest pocket for puppies. Poppy is loved by all who meet her. She is really an exceptional pup. Heather at LMD has been a great resource to us and a great friend in helping and supporting us in our puppy adventure. I wholeheartedly recommend Lake Mountain Doodle. Poppy is a future puppy mama for Lake Mountain Doodle. We’re excited to see her pups one day. S. Sayre Utah
I’ve had such a great experience with Lake Mountain Doodle! All of my questions have been answered with full support and attention during the process. Heather is great with puppies, and she’s really supportive in helping new pet parents to have the best experience. L. Littleton California
We could not have asked for a better dog than Toni, and a lot of thanks to Heather and Lake Mountain Doodle for that. Not only is Toni the cutest dog ever, but he came to us potty-trained, crate trained, people trained, and obedient. Toni was completely pee-pad trained, and did not have a single accident in his first week of living with us. He has always slept through the night in his crate (with the exception of the first night where he woke up only 2 times). He is friendly with other animals as well as people of all ages (younger cousins to older grandparents). He knew to sit before getting a treat and you could tell he was listening/observing when you were interacting with him. Our family has had many dogs over the years and we all agree that Heather was the best breeder we’ve ever encountered. Heather gave us daily updates on Instagram of the puppies’ progress. She gave us a full personality overview, and you could tell that she really loves what she does and truly cares about each and every puppy that she raises. She was responsive to every question we asked. 10/10 would recommend Heather to anybody looking for a new puppy. She knows what she is doing and is truly a fantastic person to work with, and not to mention, the puppies are perfect. A&J Giroux New York
We recently purchased our 1st dog from Heather at Lake Mountain Doodle in December of 2020. As a family we were hesitant to venture into the world of K9 ownership and had worries about getting the right dog. Our experience with Heather has been nothing but exceptional! She talked us through our fears and was great about posting videos and content about our dog (Talus). It was readily apparent that significant training had gone into the litter before ‘pick up’ day. From day one we had a wonderful dog that slept through the night in his crate and has slept through the night ever since! We now are two months in and potty training, following simple commands, and a pleasant temperament (including when being ‘loved’ by our 4 year old) have all been accomplished. We would highly recommend Lake Mountain Doodle dogs to anyone!!

Heather is an amazing breeder. She set us up so well for success with our puppy. The training she puts into her dogs is wonderful. We continue to think we have the best dog in the world and people we meet say the same thing about him. He is perfect! And even more than a year later she is still willing to answer our questions and has his best interest at heart. We recommend Lake Mountain Doodle to everyone that is looking for a dog or asks about ours.

My families experience with Heather and Lake Mountain Doodle, was top notch and of the highest quality. Heather and her family shower the puppies with love and care. The training begins soon after the arrival of the litter and continues until the puppies go to their homes. Heather communicated with us frequently during the gestation period, the communication continued until after the puppies were born, and the communication went on until she delivered us our puppy. With our puppy we received an organized file with vaccination records and documents that contained answers to frequently asked questions about raising puppies. Heather posts puppy training videos that are concise and easy to follow, these videos have been a huge help in training our newest family member. If your considering bringing a puppy into your life and you want a dog that is loving and has a gentle temperament I would strongly recommend working with Lake Mountain Doodle. Simply put Heather is the Best!

I was very impressed by the professionalism by Heather. Heather was amazing and went above and beyond with answering my questions. She also setup a video chat for me to see the puppies. I loved that she kept us updated about the puppies via Instagram. We were able to learn about the each puppies personality in order to figure which puppy would best fit with our family which was perfect because our dog Luka is a great addition to our family. When I met Heather and her husband at the airport, they were so kind. You can see they really love what they do. I loved how Heather trained the puppies and when I was home with our Luka I were impressed how he was almost potty trained and didn't have too many accidents in the beginning. I would highly recommend Lake Mountain Doodle and would buy another puppy from them again.

A year ago, we welcomed a gentle, sweet, tan and white labradoodle in our home after a careful search for the perfect puppy. In all honesty, I was hesitant of pet ownership as growing up my family did not allow house pets. My children continually begged and pleaded for a puppy. I finally gave in and decided the boys deserved the experience of a puppy and accepted the huge responsibility of pet ownership...Timber came to our family during a time of loss and has been part of the healing process. In April of 2020 I lost my beloved sister, Ivonne, to metastatic breast cancer. My sister and I were inseparable and shared all aspects of our lives. My sister did not have children but she adored and loved my boys, Jacob and Lucas, as her own with all her heart. My sister would frequently ask if she could get the boys a puppy and I would promptly let her know that I simply couldn’t take on another task. I would kindly remind her that raising two active boys and balancing school, homework and baseball was daunting and adding a pet to the mix would simply be too much for the human heart. Repeatedly, she would say that every little boy needs a puppy. The grieving of losing my dear sister is ever so present and often times Timber comes and lays down by me or rests his head on my lap. I realize he senses my sadness and I’m reminded that in some way my sister led us to finding Timber and bringing him to our family. He brings joy and healing to my broken heart...I want to thank you for breeding the most gentle, intuitive and loving puppies in the world. Timber is the perfect puppy and best Christmas gift that brings much love, joy and companionship!
