Our experience with Lisa and Andrew at Golden Cavaliers exceeded our expectations. From start to finish, the experience with Gold Cavaliers was reflective of the care they take in working with people as they make the all-important decision to add a pet to their family. Lisa does an incredible job walking people through the administrative side of choosing a puppy. She attended to our endless questions with detailed responses and warm and friendly emails. She provided supporting information and recommendations as new dog owners and sent us pictures and videos once the puppies were born. Our family had endless moments viewing videos and photos as we narrowed our choices. We see in Maddy every day the quality, love and care that Andrew puts into breeding and raising puppies. It is clear that Golden Cavaliers value socialization, health and quality of life for their puppies. Our new pup Maddy bonded with our family right away and this is a direct reflection of the socialization that Andrew and Lisa promote. The quality of the socialization is especially apparent on walks through the neighborhood as Maddy shows openness and excitement to every person and animal we pass. It was exceptionally difficult to choose which puppy would match our family. When we arrived at the farm, we did not know what to expect and the experience exceeded our expectations. Lisa and Andrew and his family spent several patient hours with us while we got to know each of the puppies. They made us feel a part of their community and helped us make our important decision and answered our endless questions until we were able to make our final choice.When it comes to making a choice about the breed of dog that best matches a family, asking lots of questions can be very helpful. Lisa really walked us through this process, sending photos and giving us descriptions of this particular breed. Maddy’s personality is just as Lisa described. The golden cavadoodle is very playful but with an ‘off switch’ and able to calm quickly and settle down into your lap for extended periods of time. This is a very intelligent breed, being easy to train starting at 8 weeks. Maddy is healthy, well socialized and a beautiful dog. Everywhere we take her people stop and ask about her and say she’s one of the cutest and best personality puppies they’ve ever seen.Many thanks to Lisa and the Hershberger family for everything, especially our amazing Maddy. It was truly a memorable experience that will be with our family forever.
