My husband Ben and I adopted one of your Goldendoodle puppies last fall. We named our puppy Meriwether, and we wanted to let you know that he is an absolutely perfect addition to our little family. Meriwether is playful, smart, and loving. He’s a friend to everyone he meets. With all that is going on in the world, this dog brings us so much joy! I’m including a picture so you can see how much he has grown – he’s up to 40 pounds!
Thank you for breeding such wonderful dogs and bringing a little extra joy into the world. Megan
Barkley is a leader who loves to have a job to do.
We chose to socialize him early with other dogs, and it has proven so successful with his social skills. He loves to bring in the newspaper, play dates with dog friends, roll in the snow, take baths, play hide and seek and go for car rides. He is my constant shadow and cuddle buddy. Blessings to you Dede !
We are so blessed to have our girl Scout! She is a true blessing to us & brings us so much joy, love & happiness. We haven’t told her she’s a dog yet, pretty sure she thinks she’s a human 🤔
She was so easy to train & knows lots of tricks and commands. We cannot imagine our lives without her! We hope you enjoy her picture, she’s used to posing. Thanks again!
Just have to share! Nala loves the lake and the pontoon rides! No issues with life jacket.
She is a super good dog! Gear fit to our family! Thanks so much!
Just wanted to give you and update on our sweet Birdie!! She is so precious and has the best temperament. We love her to pieces! She experienced snow for the first time and loved it, she kept trying to eat the snowflakes! 😂
I think she is about 45 pounds now. She is the kids favorite! They are smitten with her. She loves to be out waiting in the front yard when all the kids get out of school, the neighbor kids too! She’s out on walks everyday, we usually do 2 miles a couple times a day and she does great on and off the leash. She’s wonderful! Thank you so much for the sweetest addition to our family!!
Hi Bill and DeDe,
I have been thinking about you two today, knowing that Minnie (and her siblings!) was born one year ago today!!! Tyler and I didn’t know the excitement and joy ahead of us a year ago at this time. 😄 Just wanted to send you both a message and say thank you again and how amazing our puppy (Minnie) is. She is SO smart (just passed level 5 of 5 training class at the Humane Society) and is incredibly healthy. We are often grateful for the healthy dogs you breed and that we found Red Cedar Farms for our goldendoodle. Hope you two and your family are doing well!! -Amy & Tyler
Arthur is growing into the best dog we could have asked for. Everyone asks where we got him for not only his coloring but his personality.
We love him so much so thank you again, Annie
This is our Margo!! We picked her up almost a year ago from Dede and Bill! We couldn’t be happier with her! She’s so smart and so funny! Very expressive and loving. And she is very much a lap dog!! Thanks so much to Red Cedar Farms for a wonderful companion!!!
Can’t thank you enough for what you do!! Jack and Liz
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZOEY!!
Zoey has touched so many lives in her 14 years, from caring for the 87 year old lady, my mom, that adopted her, and all her caregivers and dog walkers along the way till mom’s death just short of her 100th birthday. My mom always said to live long you have to have a dog. Zoey proved to be a natural therapy dog when mom went to memory care and brought smiles to many families. Zoey has lived with me for the last 4 years. Always by my mom’s side, Instinctively she knew when it was time for her to come home with me, four years ago. She has been a blessing to me, and everyday I thank God for bringing her into all of our lives. What a wonderful member of our family. She still walks a mile everyday and plays with her ball! Just a big bundle of joy!!!! Thank you Dede for taking a chance on us and allowing an 87 year old lady to adopt her. I promised you I would always be there as a backup in the event mom could not care for her anymore. I never knew my mom would live so long, but in retrospect Zoey gave her a purpose to keep going. Cheers, Pamela
We got Oden from you on 10/30/21. He’s such a good boy! He was so easy to train and to top it off he’s handsome and so sweet. He loves playing with my son, they are best friends. Thank you for raising such good dogs!
-Brittany, Steve and Jax
My best description of Major is that he is sweet and affectionate, silly and adventurous, a huge red fluff ball of love. He just has brought so much joy and craziness to our lives!!
Crosby is our Christmas pup from Red Cedar Farms and is just about 1 year old. We absolutely adore him and his fun, sweet, and spirited personality. He is a very smart boy who we have recently discovered has quite the interest in hunting. He loves to be with people whether it be on the boat, yard, or hanging on the couch. He also likes to spend time swimming in the lake or playing in the snow. Everyone who meets Crosby can’t believe how beautiful his thick red coat is. He is the perfect size and the perfect fit for our family. Thank you to RCF for one great pup!
As Xander approaches his 3rd Birthday, I thought I would send you an update about how he is doing.
Xander became certified as a therapy dog at 1.5 years old, and this Fall was approved to come with me to my school counseling office and be available for staff and students during this tough year. My dream of having him come to work with me came true, and I’m beyond thrilled. He is such a good dog, and the smile he brings to the faces of those around him are priceless. He make us laugh daily. Thanks again for your role in our dream dog! Here’s to 2021! I hope it is full of happiness and health for you!
“Our big puppy, Daisy, is the absolute perfect addition to our little family! Since joining us 9 months ago, she has developed into a confident, happy, energetic, smart and friendly dog. She loves to swim, cuddle, ride in the car, play fetch and eat. She is constantly making new friends, both canine and human, and we are constantly stopped in the street to inquire about where we got her. Daisy is the 6th doodle that my extended family has gotten from Dede and Red Cedar Farms, and we could not be happier. Thank you Dede!” Nate
Mazie is a sweet loyal dog. She is a people person and loves to be part of the fun! Kathy
Also, here is a picture of our Henry from Red Cedar Farms! He was born almost exactly two years ago! Henry has been the PERFECT addition to our family. He has truly been the best dog we have ever had. Sweet, responsive, empathetic, and just LOVES to cuddle. It is almost like he can hear our thoughts and responds accordingly! And when we take him for walks, everyone always comments on how gorgeous he is (he is getting a big head, but…we couldn’t agree more!).
Ginger is our 64lb lap dog!! Her happy place is snuggled up to one of us. She is a playful girl who loves the water. Our life would not be complete without Ginger in it!!
Georgia is our second pup from RCF. She was a Christmas puppy. I was a little nervous about potty training in the winter, I think the cold air held her attention to business! Georgia is cutest, sweetest puppy we’re ever owned. We just love her. Thank you Bill and Dede!!
Here are some photos of our Goldendoodle Gus. He was born on January 28th, 2018 to your Barney and Hazel. We are so pleased
with him, he has been a perfect addition to our family including our other dog, a German short hair. Gus loves to play fetch and snuggle at night. He also loves socializing with other dogs and meeting new people. He is great with kids and has a sweet nature. We would recommend your puppies to anyone! Thank you from our family to yours, -Mara and Todd-
Birdie turned 1 this past week! We love her so much. She is pure joy all the time. A very good girl and the epitome of unconditional love. We loved Lady, our 1st RCF Golden, so very much. Birdie is just like her. You breed amazing dogs.
The Roberts Family, Victoria MN Willow is an amazing addition to our family. She is loving, energetic, smart, friendly toward everyone, and eager to please. We couldn’t be more thrilled to call her family. She is the sweetest, most loyal dog. She absolutely adores her family and wants to be with us whenever she can. She loves to play with her human siblings – ages, 11, 9 and 5, and LOVES water and snow. I feel like our family and Winnie mutually chose one another and I think she would agree. Max…the Hunter… Our handsome boy Skol will be 2 in March. He has the best low key temperament, greets us at the door smiling, wagging and talking and when it comes to cuddling, he is the best. He is more Golden than oodle… and we really love that about him now. So thankful to Red Cedar Farms for raising such great pups. I just wanted to send a quick note with a few current photos of Daisy. She is the most amazing dog! I can’t believe she’s already 7 months old–the time has flown.
We finished obedience 1 and start 1.5 in a few weeks. She’s such a people dog that school was hard–she’d rather get to know the other owners, and their dogs, than practice obedience skills! We are making progress, though, and I have hopes of doing therapy work with her some day. We’ll see how we do in obedience 1.5 and 2. That said, she brings me so much joy!
As you can see, she and Eddie are learning to love each other. She maybe loves Eddie more than he does her, but they are pretty sweet together most of the time…
Amy Waffles is five today! He is the absolute best dog. I have told you before, but he has the biggest and best personality. He is a comedian and he knows it! He is also the sweetest, most loving dood and has the best disposition.
Since having Waffles, we have ran into many RCF friends around the Twin Cities.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Waffles.
He was my first puppy on my own and I could not have asked for a better dog. This dog makes my heart happy.
Thank you and Happy New Year!
Erin Hello there!
I just wanted to let you know how much we are loving our little Goldendoodle we got from you. We named her Gertie and she is doing great and has learned so much! She is almost potty trained and knows “here”, sit, shake and stay so far. She gets along great with and plays well with our little Yorkie as well as any people or children she has been around!
We added her to our family Christmas card this year! …see the attached photo!
Richard and Rhonda Fink Hard to believe it’s been 6 months since we last saw you and picked up our fur baby in June! I’ve attached some pictures of Wesley, he is growing up into such a handsome, smart, goofy, and loving guy. We get so many compliments from strangers, it never gets old. He is just finishing up his second obedience puppy class and is doing great. We are completely in love and are looking forward to many great years and Holiday seasons with him in the family. His favorite pass times include: chewing bones, nibbling mom’s ears, sitting in laps whether you like it or not, carrying two toys in his mouth at once, getting treats, playing at the dog park, and getting belly rubs. Lauren and I just wanted to say thank you again, and wish you both a Merry Christmas. Please feel free to use any photos if you’d like (we have tons more, too), and if you have any future clients that would like to speak with us as a reference we’d be happy to do so.
Jeff + Lauren + Wesley
We can’t believe our Xander will already be a year old next month. He has been an absolute perfect addition to our family. We want to thank you, Dede and Bill, for making the process of picking out our puppy so enjoyable and easy. We know he was meant to be ours.
The day Xander came home with us at 8 weeks old, we showed him the bell to ring to go outside. That same afternoon he rang the bell on his own and went out and did his business. Xander is so smart and has been fun to train. He is just starting his third obedience class, and loves to go to “Puppy School”. Our goal is to train him as a therapy dog to help me support my students, and so far his personality is a perfect fit. He is great with all ages, other dogs, and enjoys playing with our cats Buffy and Willow . We are so thankful to have this adorable and sweet pup a part of our lives.
I wanted to update you on Poppy. She was from the 10/20/18 litter and came to live with us to be a service dog for our daughter Willow.
She has been a fantastic pup! She graduated from the puppy program at 4.5 months, is now registered with the AKC as a STAR puppy, and will soon be earning he AKC Good Citizen certificate.
She still has about a year left of training but she has been such an outstanding pupil and family pup for us! Her trainer Joanne that you met when we picked her up, has already asked for your information to give to others, since she was so impressed with your farm and with Poppy’s performance as a student.
Thank you so much! She is doing well and we are in love.
Mark, Anita, Willow and Frankie Just a note to let you know how much we love Maple! I spoke to about 10 breeders when we were looking for a puppy, but I had a really good feeling when we spoke over the phone and I’m glad I trusted my instinct to buy a puppy from you/ Red Cedar Farms.
We are overjoyed with Maple’s sweet personality…she is the perfect fit for us and our lifestyle. She’s such a good puppy…calm, curious, eager to please, playful, settles well and an all around sweet little girl. Our other dog absolutely loves her and it has brought us so much joy seeing them play together…they are best buddies! Thanks and take care! I am so proud of Zoey and so thankful for your breeding for the best temperament and the not excessively curly coat. Her coat is perfect to keep groomed, which I do myself and her ears are her crowning glory. There is not a day that goes by and people stop their cars and tell me what a beautiful dog! Goldendoodles are very popular here in Atlanta, but most are so curly they are impossible to keep a long coat. Zoeys coat is a soft curl, which was one of the traits you were after when we bought her. I would only have a 50/50. We couldn’t be happier!!! Miss Olive…just loving the snow!!! Today is Max’s first birthday so just wanted to send you an email update to let you know his impact on our family.
Max is our gentle giant and was the missing peice to our family. We have a underground fence for him and he has 3 acres of yard to explore. My dad is my neighbor so the fence encompasses his yard as well. Max likes to go to my dads everyday for a bone and to play fetch. He will bark outside my dads door until he let’s him in the house. This is so special as my dad lives alone and recently lost his dog.
At home Max likes to play with my 2 young girls (ages 2 and 5) although we keep a close eye during playtime there are times where the girls play too rough with him. He is always so gentle with them. You couldn’t get that dog to hurt those kids. The girls call Max their brother. Some nights he has hair clips in his hair and pretend fairy wings on. Other nights he has to sleep with the girls as their “protector” from monsters.
We also enjoy taking him to the nursing home to visit grandma and the other residents that live there. He loves the attention and smiles he gets from the residents there. Max is truly a blessing and we are thankful he is part of our family.
The Anderson family Hi,
We purchase our goldendoodle from you 8 years ago. He has been the joy of our life!! He is still healthy and we love him dearly! He is soooo smart, cute and loving!! The best dog we have ever had!! We just wanted to thank you for giving him such a great start, and providing us with such a loving companion!!
Beth and Steve Sorry it has taken so long for us to get a picture to you of Newton but I had someone want information on your farm and goldendoodles because they think Newton is the best, and he is, so I thought after looking up your website for her I would send you an updated picture of him taken yesterday. He is the son of Calvin and Goldie and we adopted him in June 2012.
He is the love of our life and has brought so much joy and fun into our home. He has been so easy to train and he is sooo smart. You told us he would be and he is. He will be a year old on twentieth of April and we can’t believe how fast the time has gone by. He loves being outdoors, he is all boy and loves going for rides in the car. We have kept him on the life abundance food and vitamins that he started out with and he has never had any problems with his digestive system.
Thank you so much for this great gift you have given our family. He is truly one of our children and we couldn’t be happier.
Thank you again,
Roger, Connie, Tyler, Kyle and Newton Wells 4 years ago, our family welcomed Lincoln into our home. From day one, he marked his special place in our hearts. His personality is energetic and playful, especially when it comes time for walks or playing catch with his “football” (This is by far his prized possession). When he is not exploring or playing, he LOVES to lay next to someone and cuddle. Speaking of cuddling, we discovered the true gentleness of Lincoln’s personality after our son was born. His gentleness and patience for being stepped on, tugged on and layed on is un-ending…and for that Lincoln, we THANK YOU! Hi Dede & Bill. I was admiring the pictures and great stories of your Doodles on your web site and noticed you need more pictures of ebony doodles. We brought Cooper home from RCF almost three and a half years ago. Cooper is the best and has brought great joy to our family and friends. He loves the snow, a game of fetch which is immediately followed by a game of keep away, fetching the paper and playing with his buddies at the lake and the dog park. Tom Hey Dede-
Just wanted to show you an updated picture of Doree, our Golden from Stella who was born one year ago! She has been a joy from the first time she stepped into our place. Such an incredible dog. Everyone she meets loves her and thinks she is the “best dog ever.” She gets along with every dog she encounters and is so playful; and loves to fetch!
Thank you so much for the best dog we could have ever asked for; she is truly a member of our family and we love her so much!
Scott and Jessica Tillie Kalina…on her way to the Dairy Queen and lovin life in the side car…you gotta love those goggles!! 3 Year old Bridger, Lure Coursing in Vermont!! Bridger Sands, enjoying life in the lap of luxury!! Dear Dede,
I have been meaning to write to you for some time now to update you on a pup you placed almost 8 years ago now. We are the military family that you shipped to in Phoenix at Christmas time in 2005, although we lived in CA at the time. Berkley is doing well and brings us so much joy everyday. She is a trooper, as our lifestyle requires her to move with us every two years . . . But she’s learned that home is where her family is.
She has now lived in Fort Irwin, CA; Fort Jackson, SC; Atlanta, GA; Washington, DC; Chicago, IL; and, as of last week, Seoul, Korea!!
I want to thank you for bringing her into our lives – she is really something special 🙂
Wishing you well – and keep raising beautiful puppies!
The Quale Family Hello from Emily, Adam, and Gatsby in Minnetonka. Gatsby is now two-and-a-half and we thought we’d share some recent photos of our “fur baby.” He is absolutely the most lovable and playful dog, really the perfect mix of playful and cuddly we could have hoped for! He loves to romp with other dogs in the dog park, fetch balls in our back yard, and cuddle with us on the couch while watching football. Hope you all are well!
Emily and Adam Dede,
Just wanted to share another cute picture of Charlie and our son. This picture is on Kare11 website, under “share the spirit” and was also shown on the 6:00 news last Tuesday night.
She loved chasing the hockey puck around on the ice!
Jacy Kosbab Hi Dede,
I hope you are doing well, staying warm and enjoy the holiday season! I just wanted to drop a quick note along with a few pictures about Ruby. She brings us so much joy, laughter and exercise – can’t imagine life without her! We can’t thank you enough! We would be happy to be a reference if someone is every wanting to talk to a dog owner from your one of your litters.
Ruby is now 4 ½ months and weighing about 26lbs. – vet is predicting that she will be around 45…once again, perfect! We love her color, hair style…everything!
Enjoy the attached pictures-I have many more from when we received until now if you want any! She will travel on a plane for the third time next week; Fargo bound for Christmas! We have had so many people wanting their own “Ruby” and we send them directly to Red Cedar Farms. I’m sure you have plenty of continued interest in your wonderful puppies.
All the best,
We love having Lucy in our family!
Weight: 42 pounds
Favorite position to lay in: Superman ~ all legs out
Favorite place outside: The local park where she loves to chase tennis balls. She is still learning the art of bringing them back. When we practice, Lucy runs to the ball, picks it up, drops it, and comes back to get a treat 🙂 Playing outside on the lake this winter at our cabin was another favorite.
Favorite place inside: Wherever Laurie is!
Favorite toy: Was the Angry Bird toy until she recently discovered the Everlasting Treat Dog Ball
Something unique: She gets so excited to see us when we get home from work that she does circles around our legs and cries/wines for a couple of minutes. Today she also pulled the queen size blanket that is in her crate out and wrapped it all around my legs.
Laurie’s favorite Lucy memory so far… Waking up one morning to Lucy laying back to back with me with her head on the other half of my pillow! (We aren’t planning on letting her sleep on our bed, but we have been experimenting with leaving her out at night and she is doing really well!)
We love our goldendoodle! Thank you!
Laurie & Kyle
Lucy….already a lady at 6 months!! Hi Dede and Bill,
We wanted to share a picture of our girl, Stella. Had to take this pic fast as she doesn’t slow down often! She was born July 2012 (Calvin and Peaches) and now weighs in at a very leggy 60 lbs. The shaggier she gets the bigger she looks. 🙂 You told us she was the biggest girl in the litter with a very outgoing personality and you were right on the money! She, however, thinks she’s a 5 lb lap-dog! We can’t imagine life without her. She is a very speedy learner and was so easy to train – she quickly learned to ring bells to go outside. She’s wonderful with our 7 & 9 year old daughters and has become the team mascot for their soccer games. She can’t get enough adoration from the fans on the sidelines. Amazing how many people want to meet her because she’s a doodle. As I write this she keeps dropping her frisbee on my lap, her other favorite pastime. Thank you again, she is such a wonderful part of our family.
The Delsing’s – Derek, Andrea, Megan and Quinn Sequoia will be 7 years old on February 15 and Luca will be 1 years old on March 27th. It has been a lot of fun to have 2 goldendoodles. Sequoia has been a great sister and has helped me train Luca. They are both best friends. Their personalities are very different. Sequoia has more standard poodle in her and Luca has more golden retriever. They both love the snow and are very loving dogs. They are my sweet girls and we have so much fun with them. This mix breed is the BEST. They have been easy to train because they are smart and always want to please they owner. People always stop to ask about our dogs. Hi Dede,
Here is a picture of Buster in his Halloween Costume. We trained him to put the costume on so that he wasn’t scared of it. He won the cutest costume contest for the second year in a row at our vet, and his picture was in the paper.
I know I’ve said it before, but we are so fortunate that things worked out the way that they did with getting Buster. We truly feel like he was meant to be our dog. He is a huge part of our family and we cannot imagine life without him! Thanks for being such a great breeder!
Becca, Andrew and Buster
This is our first attempt to get Buster to paddle board with us. We had trained him on the board inside first. Whenever we said, “surf’s up” he would jump on the board.
I wanted to share with you all that he has done over the past several months and what he looks like now that he is all grown up. I told Bill on the phone today that he is just at 40 lbs, which is exactly what you predicted. I’m hoping that one day, we can get a friend for Buster and would love it to be from you.
Becca, Andrew and Buster
Waffles absolutely still has his silly, playful puppy moments (that we love), but overall he is so mild-mannered and has a wonderful temperament. He is such a little lover. I cannot tell you how many times people comment when we are on walks, at the dog park, the pet store, or ANYWHERE on what a sweet boy he is or how cute he is or “Is he a doodle?!” People are impressed at what a good boy he is for being so young. Makes a mama proud 🙂 And Waffles loves to say hi…to everyone 🙂 He is a very friendly guy and loves people and other dogs, too.
Waffles is a recent graduate of Level II Obedience. We are starting agility just for fun in about a week. One of our trainers thought Waffles would make a good therapy dog, and we are also signed up for Therapy Dog Training starting the end of August. I am looking forward to that! He has been wonderful to train and catches on quick.
Thank you again! Enjoy some of the attached photos of my handsome boy! Charlie Searcy out for a stroller ride!! I just wanted to check in and say hi from Lawrence, myself, and Mika. She is the love of our lives. I just want to start by saying how beautiful she is and how many complements we get on her from other dog owners, especially doodle owners (pictures enclosed). She is so sweet with other dogs and people, and incredibly smart. She is the top of her obedience class and the trainer often uses her as an example. She knows a ton of commands, and has already been potty trained since 4 months (she’s 5 months in a week!). We just got her off leash permit to take her to the dog park and constantly get comments on how well socialized she is for a puppy. Her favorite treat is peanut butter and she goes straight into her crate before I leave for work when she sees me whip out the jar. I want to thank you so much for helping us bring her into our lives and hopefully in a few years we will have room for another J Attached is the most recent picture of Charlie and our cat Polly. Charlie torments her on a daily basis, but they really do love each other. This past year has flown by, and we could not be happier with our Goldendoodle, Dolly! She turned 1 in March of 2014 and is the love of our lives!
From the day we took her home, Dolly’s gentle, sweet, and goofy personality has shined. She was super easy to train (a total of 3 potty accidents) and learned commands quickly. We started out crate training her, and she did very well. We now leave her out to roam the house while we’re gone and have never had any issues. Dolly LOVES people, kids, and other pups. We constantly get compliments on how beautiful she is, and how long her eyelashes are! She is about 60 pounds. Her favorite activities include: hopping through the snow, going for walks, playing hide-and-seek, and sleeping in strange positions.
We just love Dolly the Doodle and don’t know what we’d do without her!! Thank you! Five-year-old Jack Scholtz, of Plymouth, reads a copy of “Herbie’s New Home” to the book’s inspiration – therapy dog Herbie at the Plymouth Library July 8. (Sun staff photo by Brian Rosemeyer) Dearest Dede, I am so grateful to have Boomer in our lives! We all love him so dearly and he has helped heal our hearts after we lost our beloved Chance. He fills our home with love, joy and much laughter. We love to take him with us if we can and show him off. People are always stopping us to pet and admire him. He just turned 7 months old and we look forward to many years of bonding, playing, learning and lots of loving with our fella! Thank you so much for all of your help to pick such an amazing addition to our family! You have been wonderful and if we ever get another dog it will most certainly be from you!!!!
Thank you so much
Boomer and Family
We just wanted to give a little update on our Bubba. He will be 4 in February and he has brought so much joy to us since the moment we brought him home. We just wanted to let you know that we are so thankful to have Bubba in our life. He has so much personality and is just the best dog anyone could ask for. He is a great guard dog as well, I definitely feel safe when I am home alone! We will be goldendoodle owners the rest of our life, we just love the breed! We have a lot of people asking us where he is from and we have recommended you over and over again as you are an amazing breeder and were so great to work with. Hope you enjoy the pics:) I just want to say that Boomer was a natural with the kids. He just knew to love them right away! Good morning Dede,
Thanks for checking up on the pups! Charlie & Simba traveled perfectly. They had 0 accidents. They are so sweet, loving, and playful.
My parents were sad to see both of them leave with their new families. I think one day my parents will be back to get another one from you.. someday!
Charlie met lots of family and neighbors. Everyone loves him! He even had his first photo shoot.
Thanks Again! Chelsea Hi Dede,
I thought you would like these. What a beautiful Fall day. I love my girls soooo much, Tamy, Sequoia, and Luca Good Morning Dede!
It’s been a while so I just wanted to touch base with you and send you an updated picture of our beloved Ollie.
He’s being groomed soon so he’s pretty shaggy but he’s THE most personable dog ever!!
We adore him.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season!
The Oteros Hi Dede,
I thought you might enjoy a dose of “cuteness” on this Saturday morning. 🙂 Winnie was born 2/11/14 at your place, and she has grown up to be a lovely young lady! Her red coat really sets her apart from all of the cream/apricot doodles that we have in our city. We CONSTANTLY have people stop to admire and ask about her- you probably will be getting several referrals from us! Behaviorally, she is a gem. She is the Queen Of Finding Stray Socks Left On The Floor. I haven’t taken her to groomers yet- “prim and proper” just wouldn’t fit her personality. 🙂 So, I shampoo and blow her out every month.
We LOVE her and can’t imagine our lives without her!
Have a blessed day,
Lori Hi Dede! I just wanted to pass along a few new pictures of Beckett in case you wanted to use any on your site! I have been working hard with her this past year on laying still and listening calmly with kids as they read so that she can come into my Kindergarten classroom and listen to the kids read her stories. The kids LOVE reading to her, and they get so excited to practice their stories when they know Beckett is coming soon! 🙂 they show her the pictures and read to her “just like our teacher reads stories to us”, as the kids would say! She truly is one my life’s greatest blessings, and I can’t begin to tell you how much I love that little lady! 🙂 I wish you and your family a very happy holiday season!! Hi Dede and Bill,
Just wanted to send you a photo of Winston at about 10 months. He’s everything we were looking for in a dog. He likes to be active outside with us when we go on hikes or long walks. He also likes to cuddle with us. Since Winston loves people, we are starting the process to get him certified as a therapy dog next week.
Happy New Year! November, 2014 we welcomed Koda Bear into our family. From the beginning of our journey with you to the very end when we picked out Koda, it was a great experience. I want to thank you for everything.
I thought I would share this photo of Koda with you. He has been a blessing to us. This picture is of his very first camping trip two weekends ago. He was such a good boy. He loved all of the walks we went on. He continues to put a smile on our faces everyday. He has such a fun personality, loves people, and loves to play with other dogs.
Thank you again for breeding such wonderful pups.
Thirza, Eric & Kaden I wanted to give you an update on our little Tater Tot. She is the love of our life!!! I cannot imagine my life without her (even though she likes to wake up at 5:45am).
She is such a smart, well-tempered dog. Our vet constantly tells us she has a great demeanor.
She has been pretty easy to train so far. She rings the bell when she wants to potty; she sits, stays, comes, shakes, high fives, dances, rolls over, plays dead, lays down, and does a “doggy pushup.”
Everyone thinks she is the cutest little puppy!! I thought I would send you a recent photo of LEO who continues to grow everyday.
He has added so much to our family and is exactly the type of dog I was looking for. We take him for walks daily, and our boys constantly play ball, frisbee, and wrestle with him. He is so silly, easy going and sweet. He and our cockapoo are great buds and love to play.
One of the best things is early in morning or after we get home from work he is right there with a big smile to greet us, ( he literally lifts his lips shows us his teeth and smiles at us) …he has so much personality we all just love him!
He is also so handsome I often get stopped by people as they want to pet him and learn more about him.
The Lynch Family My name is Wendy Trestman. 10 years ago I received the greatest joy from you which is my sweet Ziggy.
He was my first dog and he has changed my life forever. He goes every where with me. He has come to work with me everyday since the day I took him home. He is extremely spoiled and everybody loves him!
Friday (August 21) was his 10th birthday. I can’t believe how the years have flown by! I wanted to thank you for the gift of my Ziggy and let you know that he is living a great life!
I give out your information frequently as people are always asking about you after meeting Ziggy. A few years back we met another Red Cedar doodle at the dog park. The two dogs took off together and I have never seen him so excited about another dog. After talking to the other owner we realized they were from the same litter! It was as if they knew it! Such an incredible interaction that I will never forget.
Hope all is well at Red Cedar Farm. I have attached a few photos for you.
Thank you again for my beautiful boy! Hi Dede,
We are expecting our first baby in about a month and just had maternity pictures taken, of course, our loving doodle Fred was in most of them! Just wanted to pass along a picture! Hope all is well with you and your dogs! Darcy is an amazing dog. So loving, playful, active and happy. Jace is her favorite (of course!), but she loves the rest of us as well. We four continually compete for her attention (it is a bit pathetic!). Our oldest daughter left for college in NC this fall, and the most difficult part of being away from home was missing Darcy! We are so grateful to have found her through you two. She is a light in our lives. I wanted to just send a note letting you know how absolutely amazing Windsor is. He is the most loving and kind dog we could ever ask for! Thank you so much for everything! Attached are some “favorite” pictures of him!
We are planning to get another one in the future so that he can have a buddy to play with. We will make sure to contact you when we are ready! Ali
Just an update from one of your pups. Ollie Otero will be two at the end of December and is a superstar pet. Faye
I just gotta say, Bode, who’s now approaching nine years old, is the most amazing creature and gift. I couldn’t have asked for a better companion. He’s road tripped with me all around the USA & Canada a few times, swimming in every ocean & great lake and bounding through endless snow capped mountains. He’s almost too good to be true.
Also, in the summer he spends most the day at the cabin in the lake entertaining himself..
Here’s a few pics.
Jeff Hi Dede,
Just wanted to send you a little update on our Cooper. He is doing really well and I’m pretty sure he’s enjoying his new family! 🙂 He has been ringing the bell to go outside for about 2 weeks now. We are working on only ringing the bell for potty time and not playtime or walks. 🙂 His first trip with us to the vet went great and he was very calm for most of the visit. He is in a pretty good routine of eat, play, sleep and outdoors. Chris says that for his age, he is a pretty relaxed and easy going dog. The vet also said he can start his training for sit, stay and come so we are working on sit right now. 🙂
We are trying our best to make him a well rounded and easy going family dog. 🙂
We are truly enjoying Cooper and so happy we made the decision to get a dog and also happy with our experience at Red Cedar Farms. Thank you again!!
Hi Dede and Bill,
As we near the 7th birthday of our dog Anny that we purchased from you, we wanted to let you know what a great dog she is! She has been a registered therapy dog since shortly after turning 1. As a therapy animal team we visit the Ronald McDonald House, 2 different Cancer Clinics, the airport and we do the R.E.A.D. Program where kids read to Anny at the library. She has such a sweet personality and loves to be around people! We are so thankful for the great start you gave Anny!
I was looking at the RCF Friends page on your site and remembering the day we picked out our precious dog, Brie, from Red Cedar Farms more than 11 years ago. It was easily one of the happiest days of my life and my sister’s life when our parents told us we were finally going to get a dog and surprised us by driving us up to the farm to pick out Brie. Brie was the best first dog anyone could ever ask for. She was energetic, friendly, beautiful and a great companion. Every time we would take her for a walk, we would get asked “what kind of dog is she” and “oh she is the cutest dog we’ve ever seen!” Some of her favorite activities was waiting for us to open the dishwasher so she could lick all of the plates, going on runs/walks, chasing animals around our yard and simply being with people. She was truly loved by everyone who knew her. Sadly, she passed away about a month ago, but she was truly a blessing for the 11 short years that we had her and we miss her every day! (Sorry it took 11 years to pass along a photo!)
Hope all is well,
Hannah I thought you might enjoy seeing Boogie! He has turned out to be the best dog we’ve ever owned!
Chris Eddy almost 6mo.!
We love this goofy/laid back boy so much! He just finished obedience with the girls in 4H and started “off leash” training for therapy! He is so easy to train. We plan to go to children’s hospitals and nursing homes. He weighs 35lbs.
Of course anyone who meets him wants him!!
Lisa Hi from Marta,Tony, and Irie from Richfield, MN. Irie turned 1 year old on July 9th 2016, this is a picture of her last January. She is the sweetest most loving dog we have ever met! Irie loves playtime! Some of her favorite activities are playing chase me and going to local dog parks to meet friends! She also loves being outdoors. Whether its playing in heaping piles of snow in the winter, or swimming in the lake in the summer Irie is game! She also enjoys eating mango with mom, popcorn with dad, and listening to raggae!
Thanks again Bill & Dede!
Elwood has just melted our hearts and we love him so much. We have had all kinds of fun adventures and he is everything we could’ve ever hoped for and more. When we are at the dog park everyone just oohs and aahs at him and compliments on how handsome his coloring is and how friendly and good natured he is when playing with other dogs. They are amazed when we share he doesn’t shed – at all! At 8 months old he’s just over 55 pounds and we expect he has a little more growing to do. We are still holding out on having him neutered until he’s closer to 1 year old. So far so good. He loves to jump and has an amazing vertical – he’s a bouncer. He also loves the water and is blissfully happy any time we go up to the lake. He loves to swim with the kids and chase frogs! All in all we couldn’t be happier and just want to say thank you for an amazing experience and a wonderful dog. Yesterday we celebrated Lucy’s first birthday. Her and I have had a busy spring. We went to puppy classes at Paws Inn Resort in New Germany. She graduated from puppy class and level one. We are currently are in level 2. She’s a smart and loving dog. She is my best friend. Attached is a picture of Lucy taken in July after her first real hair cut. Linda & Lucy Good morning, I was thinking about how grateful I was for our furry friends this morning and thought about what a wonderful addition Josie has been to our family. You may not remember me but my name is Autumn Wood and I am from the Cedar Rapids Iowa area. It was 12 years ago last August that we drove to your farm to pick up our newest addition. She has helped me raise our kids and has been the most loyal, kind, endearing sweet dog we’ve ever had. She has many disciples in our area as she was one of the first goldendoodles people saw. Many of our friends proceeded to get one after they met our sweet Josie. She will be 13 in June and is still doing very well. We brought her home to be a companion to our standard poodle. After her arrival, we got another little Shih Tzu. We have lost the original standard poodle but now have another and Josie has helped me raise each other dog that has come into our home. She is the matriarch for our little pack and teaches other dogs to be good. Thank you for her. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and continue to provide wonderful dogs to loving families. I’m not sure who loves the lake more. The kids or Piper. Tater is going to be a big sister this coming August! She is very excited to lick and play with the little babe. They will be best buds. She is so gentle around babies and kids. People are amazed she’s only 2.
I’ve attached some pictures of Tater in our baby announcement.
Thanks again for providing us with the best dog in the world. She has so much love in her life. In this photo, Rowdy is 7 months old. Katie, my daughter had just finished off a jar of peanut butter and gave it to him. That gave him about 45 minutes of happy puppy fun.
Rowdy is 50 lbs of enthusiastic doggy companion. He has more energy than a slinky on an elevator and wants to play all day. So far, he is a really good retriever. Everything from tennis balls to dead training birds, he loves to go find them. He has a really great nose and he loves to use it to find things.
We are members of the Four Points Retriever Club and learning together how to hunt together. Rowdy gets excited when I start packing the truck to go to training meets.
He’s very bright, learns easily, and loves to do tricks for my wife and daughter, especially if food is involved.
I’ve enjoyed every moment with him since we picked him up last January. Wow! Where do we begin? We absolutely love Chester and his awesome, fun, and spunky personality! He makes us so happy! He loves everyone he encounters and loves his daily walks and runs. He is the best big brother and as you can see, she loves him so much!
Cannot thank you enough for him. We love him so much! Thank you!!
Ummmm…what flavor did you say this is? Henry, enjoying his ice cream cone! Kirby…just waiting patiently for the game to start!! Duke…loving life in the pool!! Hi Dede — We have been meaning to send you a quick note of thanks since we picked up our puppy from you last summer. Louie is doing fabulously and is quite the bundle of energy! He graduated top of his obedience class last month and is a super smart boy. I included a current picture of him so you can see how handsome he is, too. We are excited for our good friends, the Tschidas, to bring home their own Red Cedar Farms Golden Doodle next month. It’s almost like Louie will have a little sister to pal around with! Hope all is well on the farm. Thanks again! Diane, TIm, Sophia, Megan and Ben Olson proud owners of Louie We were so pleased with the entire experience of bringing our beautiful dog, Sally, into our family. The breeders at Red Cedar Farms clearly love their dogs, are concerned for their health and well-being, and put in a great deal of effort to make sure the transition to the new families goes very smoothly. Our sweet Sally has been a fantastic dog – so loving and cute, very easy to potty train (since RCF did a lot of the pre-work!), healthy, smart, happy, playful, and mellow. We absolutely adore our dog!! Dede, Just wanted to update you on Miss Zoe, she is a joy to us. We are so enjoying her as are everyone that meets her. She is fun And very smart . Loves to go to Okoboji and boat ride, thanks for Raising such need puppies. Connie Hi Dede: I wanted to share some pictures of Chewy for inclusion on your Red Cedar Farms website. Enjoy. He is the LOVE of our LIFE! **Also, let us know when you are breeding black Goldendoodles. We will be in the market probably next year. Thanks! Allie and Ryan Ahhh…no one enjoys summer on the like like a dog!! Bode Mandy Rodeberg…loving those snowy days!! The lazy days of summer….Bella Rosenfield Griffin…checking in!! Friends forever…Tami and Sequoia Louie…ahhh…the life of a dog!! Hi!! My name is Stoli! My mommy is a Standard Poodle, and my daddy is a red Golden Retriever. I was born on Red Cedar Farms!! Murphy….loving life on the boat!! Sami…a lovely doodle born on Red Cedar Farms Charlie Carr…loving the snow!! I’m finishing up my first semester of medical school in Iowa, and guess who made the trip from South Dakota to visit me? Archie! Here’s a picture from his visit. Mom and dad are taking good care of him. He loves playing frisbee and hide and seek. He has brought so much joy and laughter into our lives.
Libby Nail It’s been forever, but I just wanted to send you some pictures of our beautiful boy! Cosmo was from one of your litters born 9/25/06. He is doing so well; one of the friendliest dogs ever! He loves to cuddle and sit on our laps! ~Betsy =)
One of our stunning “Ebony Doodles” raised on Red Cedar Farms!! Dede, Sending along a few pics of our new addition “Norma”. She has been a dream. Everyone comments how calm she is allow with how soft her hair is. She loves to play with the kids and listens very well. Norma has been a wonderful addition to our family. Thank you for breeding such perfect dogs. We will keep you posted as she grows. Holly Frantzen I have attached some recent pictures of Buster. He is growing up to be quite the handsome dog. He is still on the small side and weighs about 17 lbs, so I think you are right that he will be closer to 40 lbs once full grown. We absolutely love him and cannot imagine life without him. He is such a friendly and outgoing dog and it has been so much fun training him. He just finished his Kinderpuppy class and loved playing with other dogs so much that he cries when he has to leave them. He has also grown rather attached to Andrew and I. He has a great amount of energy, but is also so mellow. My brother came to visit last week and could not believe how calm he is for a puppy. He claimed he was calmer than his older dogs. He is also a local celebrity, as his picture was in the Laker paper, because he won the cutest Halloween pet costume contest at the Westonka Animal Hospital . Everyday we feel so fortunate that things worked out the way they did and that we were able to get such a great dog like Buster. I always recommend you to anyone we meet who asks about Buster and Goldendoodles.
Thanks again for everything and I hope that things are going well for you! Becca
Griffin is doing wonderfully. Tessa and I already love him to death! He has so much personality, energy, and is incredibly intelligent. In fact, he has already (at eight weeks old) learned several commands such as come, sit, lay down (sort of), rings his bell when it’s time to go out, learning to walk at our sides, he’s wonderful in his crate, and he is working on high-five! He is also loving the food you recommended (life’s abundance) which is evident given his dramatic increase in size over the past couple of weeks J. Tessa and I are looking forward to the many years ahead with this fantastic companion!
Attached is a picture of him from last week giving his “sad puppy eyes” look that makes our hearts absolutely melt, and another of him playing in the backyard.
Thank you for breeding such a wonderful animal. It is obvious you have the knowledge and experience in creating truly amazing Goldendooodles! Just wanted to send you a quick note about Duncan. He is the best dog in the world. He is loving, gentle, smart and beautiful. We get stopped every single time we are walking him with people asking us where we got him. He trots like a show dog and loves picking up sticks. He loves to play fetch and is learning how to bring the ball back. He was potty trained in two weeks and rings a bell when he wants to go outside. He loves to play tug. His favorite time to play is at 10:00 p.m. when we finally sit down on the couch to relax:) My husband who didn’t want a dog takes him every where he goes. Even to the grocery store. He is a wonderful member of our family. Thank you for Duncan. He is simply the best! Just thought I’d send you a couple pictures of our precious Darla. We just love her to pieces. Her and our 18 month old are best friends, and she plays so gentle with him, even though she’s already bigger than he is! She is super smart and very well behaved, we haven’t lost a shoe yet!! She knows at least 10 commands now and picks up on things super quick! I’m happy to say she only pottied in our house 5 times before we had her trained, and she’s had the run of the house since very early on, not including at night. AND, not a single hair has been found on our furniture! Everyone who meets her loves her, as she does them. People are ALWAYS stopping us to ask us what kind of dog we have and to tell us how cute she is, and we just say, “I know.” hahah Hope you’re doing well. Lindsay Russell Diesel is now three years old and an unbelievable addition to our home. He is very patient with my wife when she chooses to “pose” him for photo ops. This one was during one of the Presidential Debates on TV. He is a 70 pound “Lap Lander”. I don’t know what we’d do without him.” Hi Dede, Well, we picked up our little boy and are already in love! We named him Hurley. He’s been a really good boy so far. He whined a bit last night in his kennel as expected, but has already been really good with the potty training and learning how to play fetch. Thank you so much for bringing him into our lives! Hi Dede and Happy New Year to you. Barkley is doing great , thought I would just let you know what is happening in his life. He is almost 7 months old. He is just under 50 pounds and was “fixed” on last Friday. He did great. He is confused since he is now broken , so how can it be called fixed ??? We did a 5 week puppy socialization class , he had a great time. We have done 3 private sessions with a certified trainer …. She thinks he is GREAT. !! She recently told me that she has known what she considered 3 great therapy dogs and thinks that Barkley will be the 4th. ! Saturday we start an outdoor adventure class , should be fun and on the 14th of Feb. we start a basic obedience class. Barkley is with our 2 year old granddaughter in this photo. They are a pair together. She doesn’t like him to touch her toys …. Or his toys either. He is good with her , still excited when she arrives. For the most part , he is calm. I am really enjoying him. !!!! I have thought maybe in a year or so I would like to get him a friend , certainly will be from you guys if I get another Goldendoodle. Hope all is well in your world. Thanks for picking Barkley for me. Becky J Greetings, remember me? I am a black Goldendoodle born 7/10/06 at Red Cedar farms. I was adopted by the Drechsel family in Sept. of that year. I am a happy and content dog, unless I have to get my hair cut. I attended doggy training classes for more than a year, I got a second place ribbon,and impressed my teachers with wow well I learned. My owner say I am a great family pet, am friendly to everyone, and am very silly. They also say that I was just the kind of dog they were looking for. My favorite activities include; eating, sleeping, playing, swimming, squirl and rabbit watching (and sometimes chasing), getting tummy rubs, finding something cushy to lay on, and playing with other dogs. I just wanted to let you know that I am doing great, and I sent some pictures of me and my siblings. Sincerely, LIna and the rest of the Drechsels She loves the snow and she is trained real well. She comes in and goes to her crate until she dries for a while. I bought her a pink little shirt that she wears when we walk. Its cute. She is far to stylish for our home or maybe just to much like Grace. They are always together. Quite the connection that Grace and Tallie have. We are very happy with Tallie in every way. My husband is teaching her to balance the ball on her head then flip it up and catch it with her mouth. She also catches the ball or frisbee you throw to her and then brings it back for another run. One of her favorite parts of the day is running to the bus stop after school (3 houses down the block). She loves greeting Nick and all of the other kids. She runs right back home leaving him behind. Guess he is to slow. She also has full run of the house and loves our bed and Gracies bed although at night she sleeps on the couch. Indoors her favorite thing to do is watch the fish in our 55 gallon aquarium or gaze at her reflection in the fire place. She cracks us up…Just a bit spoiled but very much a part of our everyday life!!! Loving my new bed!!! Augie, bred at Red Cedar Farms Hi Dede, We hope that you have enjoyed the summer as much as we did. It’s hard to believe, but Emmie is already six months. She has been such a fun addition to our lives. She loves to swim at the lake, play fetch, and socialize with other dogs. We finished up with puppy kindergarten in early June and will be starting “Level 1 Obedience” classes next Thursday…she gets to go back to school just like the other kids :). I thought that you might like to see some recent photos. I hope that all is well with you and your family. Take care! Alissa & Chris Goldendoodles excel in many areas! They make great service dogs, keen waterfowl retrievers, and above all, amazing family companions!
