We are the Ford Family with Dapper Doodles of Tennessee. We are so glad that you stopped by! We are a small, hobby-breeder committed to raising top-quality, healthy, well-balanced and loving Goldendoodle puppies. We are passionate about the Goldendoodle breed and look forward to working with you to find the perfect puppy to provide all the sweet kisses, unconditional love, laughs, snuggles and the best friend you could ever have.
We believe that producing healthy and dependable puppies begins with choosing the right parents. When assessing sires and dams, we look for top quality dogs that are "best in class" for health, intelligence and temperament. All of our parents are DNA health tested for common health defects that can be found in the breed and all of our puppies come with a 2 year health guarantee against fatal/severe genetic defects (please refer to the guarantee for specifics). All of our parents have also been tested and received clearance by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, OFA, for their heart, hips and elbows and eyes. We are happy to provide testing results to you, just ask! We are NOT a backyard breeder or a puppy mill. Because we are choosing to breed, we take the responsibility very seriously. We want to ensure that the puppies our program produces are healthy, well-tempered and are brought into this world with love so that they can bring your family love, lots of laughs and snuggles for many, many years.
Dapper Doodles of Tennessee puppies are raised in our home with us! They are a part of our family and are loved on, played with and exposed to family life constantly. We follow the Puppy Culture program, a gold standard in puppy rearing and early socialization. As your breeder, we have a huge opportunity to make a dramatic impact on your puppy's ultimate personality and the relationships that puppy will make.
Through following Puppy Culture, we provide:
- Early Neurological Stimulation
- Age Appropriate Games and Exercises
- Early Socialization to people and other dogs
- Begin work on Potty Training
We also conduct various puppy evaluation exercises at 7 weeks old in an effort to ensure that you get a puppy that fits well with you, your family and your needs. We want your new puppy to be a perfect match for your family and be your new best friend!
