Why Fox Creek Farm?
We saw record rises in puppy purchasing during the 2020-2021 phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, with many people purchasing puppies to improve their mental health during this extraordinary time. Quarantine allowed families to have ideal circumstances to welcome a puppy into their home for puppy training while they were working from home. Shelters across the country were also emptied.
These circumstances also led to some negative impacts in the animal industry (specifically dogs), such as people seeing this as a good time to start a breeding program due to the demand of dogs. This caused an explosion of doodle breeders (and other breeds, too) across the country. Some with good intentions, but many more with other priorities.
An even worse impact was the increase in scammers! Scammers have always been a part of the animal industry, but today they are delivering terrifying statistics. According to TellTail’s research:
- Last year, 35% of all reported online scams in the United States involved a pet transaction.
- From 2019-2021, there was a 165% increase in online scams.
- The average financial loss for someone scammed is $1000.
Fox Creek Farm is proud to have been in business since 2001, responsibly placing countless puppies in the hands of amazing pet owners. When you purchase a puppy from us, you can have peace of mind that we:
- Are a leading breeder of Goldendoodles since 2001
- Ask our puppy families to fill out a survey at 6 & 12 months of age. Our data on size, temperament and health is unparalleled.
- Saw a need in bringing Goldendoodle breeders together to uphold ethical breeding practices, and therefore, founded the Goldendoodle Association of North America, of which we are Blue Ribbon breeder members since 2009
- Are rated ‘Excellent’ breeders with Good Dog
- Are ‘Certified Scammer Free’ with TellTail
- Offer LIFETIME support
- Do this as a full time job, not a side hustle. Our only priorities are our puppies, dogs and you.
- Fully health test our breeding dogs to the highest level (PennHip, OFA hips, OFA elbows, OFA eyes, OFA heart, OFA patella + revalant DNA diseases for the breed) with results provided to you
- Offer a 2-4 year full genetic health warranty comes with every puppy. We stand behind our puppies.
Our experience cannot be duplicated. Purchasing a puppy for the first time can be a daunting process, but not if you fall in to the hands of a thoughtful and caring breeder.
