Welcome to The Paw Pad Goldendoodles, Inc. We are located near Peoria, IL. We hope you enjoy viewing our photos and getting to know us better.
We are the Phillips family and we love raising Goldendoodles. The above photo was taken at Keith and Christine's 25th wedding anniversay and vow renewal. We have 5 children and 9 grandchildren. Photo is missing 2 of our Grandchildren.
Our 10th annual Paw Pad Goldendoodle Romp is scheduled for June 7th in Lake Forest, IL. from 1-4pm. This is near Chicago! The romp is for families that have adopted from us. Last year we had over 100 people and around 75 Goldendoodles! It is a fun reunion and a chance to come and connect with other families that have adopted from us and possibly find littermates to your Paw Pad Goldendoodle. Below is a photo from our 2014 Romp!
If you are interested in adopting a Goldendoodle please fill out the contact section on the "Contact Us" page and we will email you an application/questionaire and go over what litters we have planned.
We raise them in these sizes: Toys, minis, mediums and standards. You can see their average weights and the generations on our pricing page.
Our goal is to place beautiful, healthy, well socialized puppies into the lives of families who wish to enrich their lives with a Goldendoodle. They are a joy to raise. They are smart and lots of fun! Not to mention, adorable!
Our puppies come with a 24 month guarantee for hips and eyes. The tests that we have done are OFA Hips, Ofa Elbows, eyes, heart, patella, vWD and SA.
We monitor our females during delivery and are right there from the very start of each puppy's life. We give the puppies play time in our puppy play room beginning at 5 weeks of age. They are well socialized with children and adults. They are loved on and well cared for from the minute they are born.
We have a wonderful staff that also works with our dogs and puppies right along with our family. One of our employees is a self taught groomer. She does an amazing job with our dogs and grooms them all once a month. She also does all of our record keeping to make sure the puppies are on the right schedule for dewormings and vaccinations. She use to work at a vet office before we snatched her up.
Breeding Goldendoodles is a passion of ours and we strive to make this an enjoyable experience for the families. We keep in contact with the families before and after placement. We are here to answer any questions that families may have. Our puppies have their first set of vaccinations at 6 weeks and are de-wormed starting at 4 weeks. Dew claws are removed.
Our puppies come with a toy that smells like siblings, a gallon bag of puppy food, a collar, toys, microchiped and a shot record and puppy advice printout. Weekly photos are taken of the puppies so the families can watch them grow. We also video the puppies before the choosing day so that the families can get a feel for their personalities before they choose. Our trainer temperament tests them the week of choosing.
