To help you find your next furry best friend, here is a list of some of the best Goldendoodle breeders in or near Phoenix. The following breeders have received glowing reviews for being reliable and responsible breeders.
Copper Skye Doodles
Deborah Lipman of Copper Skye Doodles has been breeding Goldendoodles since 2003. She more recently added Bernedoodles to the mix as well.
Copper Skye is centrally located in Phoenix Arizona, though they have locations all over Arizona. Puppies are also able to be shipped to any major airport near you.
Parent dogs are all DNA tested to ensure healthy, happy puppies. There is a three-year health guarantee for any dog from Copper Skye.
The puppies of Copper Skye are raised to have good temperaments. Parents are chosen according to their confident and calm personalities, which are typically passed on to the puppies. They are known to be loving family dogs that are well-socialized with other dogs and people early on.
Copper Skye’s website does not give the final pricing for their puppies. However, you must pay a $500 deposit to be added to the waitlist (or Puppy Pick List).
The website does state that deposits can be refunded and that the pricing is lower than other local breeders.
After looking through the Facebook and Google reviews of Copper Skye, I have seen nothing but good reviews. Not only that, but every review that I read gave Copper Skye five stars!
“I am so glad that I chose Deb and Copper Skye Doodles! Deb was very thoughtful and kind throughout the entire adoption process. It was evident that she cared about the puppies and finding the right family. I feel like I hit the jackpot and have the most perfect puppy! My Bo was easy to potty train, very receptive to a kennel, and has been a fast learner . . . everyone I meet loves him!”Sandi M.
“I can’t say enough about Copper Sky! Our baby is almost 6 yrs old now. She is sweet, smart, beautiful, fleece coat, 17 lbs and extremely intelligent. Zero health issues! I think our family needs another one, soon!”Dannielle H.
Potential buyers must submit a Puppy Purchase Agreement and a $500 deposit to be added to the waitlist. This can be found on their website (details below).
Beautiful Doodles 4 U
Beautiful Doodles 4 U (BD4U) specializes in both Bernedoodles and Goldendoodles in Casa Grande, Arizona. They emphasize early positive human relationships along with top-of-the-line breeding standards for their puppies.
The breeders, Daneesha and Brandon, are also the founders and official breeders for Molly’s Purpose. Molly’s Purpose donates puppies and dogs to those in need of service, therapy, or facility dogs.
All puppies are given initial vaccines, a microchip, deworming treatment, and a health certificate. BD4U also provides owners with a two-year health warranty in case of hereditary diseases.
Every puppy sold by Beautiful Doodles 4 U is socialized with adults, children, and other dogs. They are challenged regularly with problem-solving and training exercises.
At three weeks, the puppies begin potty training and go through Advanced Service Dog Curriculum. The puppies are also temperament tested at about seven and a half weeks old.
The pricing for puppies depends on size and breed. Standard, Moyen, and multi-gen Goldendoodles cost $2,800 while Minis are $3,200. Their standard Bernedoodles sell for even more.
Beautiful Doodles 4 U does not have many reviews on Facebook and Google, but the ones that are there all recommend them! I have yet to find a review under five stars.
“BD4U donated a beautiful puppy to my medically complex daughter! They made sure to evaluate each puppy before choosing one for us. She turned out to be the most perfect match for our needs. She is 6 months now and extremely smart and well on her way to being the best medical alert dog ever!”Natalie H.
“Highly recommend BD4U! They were so informative and walked us through every step of the way, and if we had any questions, it was easy to contact them. They care so much about each puppy and prepare both you and the pup for anything and everything with a ton of resources and assistance. Thank you for our sweet Toby!”Emily V.
Those wanting a BD4U Doodle must first fill out a puppy application and have a short phone interview. If approved, you will need to pay a reservation fee and complete the Master List/Reservation Agreement Form.

Overall, the reviews for Daisy Mountain Doodles are positive. I have only encountered one review that claims to have gotten an aggressive puppy, which is the first review below. This review does go on to state that the breeder, Sarah has been fantastic throughout it all.
“Sarah was great to work with during the research and selection process . . . I share the next part of our experience to remind anyone who is getting a puppy that no matter the cost or breed or any other factor, there is no guarantee of temperament. Our puppy showed aggressive resource guarding within 2 weeks of coming home . . . Sarah has continued to support our family in working with our pup to achieve a positive experience . . .While it has been stressful, Sarah has really shown a commitment to her clients and her pups.”Jessica S.
“I LOVED working with Sarah at Daisy Mountain Doodles. My new pup is so smart and gentle! Sarah was extremely transparent throughout the whole process and very helpful when I had questions. I know I will be back when I want my next one!”Kelly G.

Maureen Simpson of Arizona Goldendoodles breeds Standard and Mini Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles in Peoria, Arizona. She breeds Aussiedoodles and plans on breeding Sheepadoodles as well.
Arizona Goldendoodles breed only first-generation (or F1) Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles. This means that the parents of puppies are purebred Poodles, Golden Retrievers, and Bernese Mountain Dogs.
Puppies bred by Arizona Goldendoodles are used as pets, service dogs, and therapy dogs.
Every Arizona Goldendoodle puppy receives their first shots, a microchip, temperament testing, and a health certificate. Each puppy comes with a two-year health guarantee covering any hereditary issues that may pop up.
Parents of puppies are health and temperament tested as well.
Puppies are exposed to a variety of different animals within their first eight weeks. Arizona Goldendoodle puppies are also trained as service and therapy dog candidates. They are socialized with people of all different ages and abilities as well as different sights and sounds.
I have been unable to find pricing for Arizona Goldendoodles. There is a $500 partially refundable deposit that is required before being placed on the waiting list.
Arizona Goldendoodles have the most reviews of any other breeder on this list. With 111 Google reviews, they average a 4.5-star rating. On Facebook, they have a 4.8-star rating with 88 reviews.

Maureen cares about her puppies and makes sure they are healthy and well adjusted. . . .Sharida J.
Most reviews are positive, though the negative reviews are all either about the owner being rude or a long waitlist. All the negative reviews I found were from people who did not get a puppy from Arizona Goldendoodles.
“Have waited 6 months after sending a $500 deposit to be put on a waiting list. I wanted to cancel and was told they charge a 50% cancellation fee.”Jaci R.
The first step towards getting an Arizona Goldendoodle puppy is to submit a puppy application. After you are approved, you must provide a deposit to be added to the waitlist.
