~ 5 star breeders of Golden Retrievers, Goldendoodles, and Dakota Sport Retrievers ~
Where are you located?
We are located in beautiful Brown County, Indiana, about an hour south of Indianapolis.
Do you ship puppies?
Yes! We have shipped puppies from coast to coast (no international shipping at this time). Shipping typically adds $500 to the price of your puppy. Sometimes it is cheaper to fly in and take your puppy back with you in-cabin. We meet new families at the airport with their puppy and they never have to leave the airport, rent a car, or find lodging. Sometimes we use a flight nanny to fly our puppies to their new families; and sometimes we use a ground transport service for pets. There are many ways to get your new puppy to your home safe and sound. We are happy to discuss all of the options with you so you can make the choice that works best for your family!
Are your puppies socialized?
Yes! We take pride in spending a lot of time with our puppies to make them well-adjusted and extremely affectionate.
Can we come to Bear Creek Kennels to visit or choose our puppy?
Yes! We welcome adoptive families into our home so that they can see the environment our puppies and parents live in.
When are you available for showings?
We work hard to adjust to the schedules of our customers. The only day we are never available is on Sunday due to worship.
Are your puppies healthy?
Yes! We spare no expense to send you home with a chubby and healthy puppy! All of our puppies are vet checked, regularly de-wormed, and up-to-date on vaccinations. We spend thousands of dollars per year on supplements and other things to keep both our moms and babies as healthy as possible.
At what age can we bring our puppy home?
We keep the puppies until they are 8 weeks old to ensure that they are mature enough to leave mom and littermates, and adjust well to their new homes.
Do you offer a health guarantee?
Yes! We offer a one-year health guarantee that covers any major health issue that would prevent your puppy from being a wonderful pet for years to come.
Can I reserve a puppy before they are ready to go home?
Yes! With a $100 deposit you can reserve your puppy of choice. We welcome people to come to our kennels to choose their new family member, but if distance is an issue, we can provide photos to help you make your final choice from home.
What are F1B Goldendoodles?
Our F1B Goldendoodles are 1/4 poodle and 3/4 Golden Retriever (or in some cases 3/4 Poodle and 1/4 Golden Retriever). They generally look similar to a Golden Retriever, but are much less prone to shedding. Their coats can be curlier than a typical Golden Retriever's.
What are F2 Goldendoodles?
F2 Goldendoodles are second generation Goldendoodles - meaning a Goldendoodle bred to a Goldendoodle. They can be either curly or smooth, and have qualities from both the Golden Retriever and Poodle sides.
