Hi Denise, Thanks for this and sorry for my delayed reply. Nice to see Sylvester’s littermate Harmony. Yes, they do look alike. But Sylvester’s a hot dog and so I keep his hair trimmed quite close—esp. now in this heat!
We celebrated Sylvester’s 1st birthday and my daughter’s 20th simultaneously. Photo 1.
Photo 2 is him just after grooming. Yes, he’s very handsome. Everyone loves him and he remains so calm and mild-mannered. He’s gone through a couple of rounds of training classes, and this fall I think I’ll try to get him certified as a Canine Good Citizen and he can be a therapy dog—maybe go visit hospitals or something. He’s so sweet and soft, everyone loves to pet him.
He’s gone quite silvery—white hairs sprinkled in amongst the black, more white at the rear and tail. From a distance he looks kind of gunmetal grey. And of course his white chest blaze and little white goatee.
He’s gotten BIG—65 pounds! I take him to run and play with a few doggy friends every morning, so he stays exercised and trim. Photo 3 is him and his tumbling buddy taking a rest after chasing each other around. He’ll retrieve balls if there’s nothing else to do but he’d much rather play with other dogs. I attached a great video of the two pups playing.
The other thing he loves most is picking up and bringing home sticks—sticks of ALL sizes, including whole palm fronds. Photo 4
And his favorite sleeping position. Photo 5
We love him and I’m often referring people to you/your website cause everyone wants to know what kind of dog he is. We love having a Whoodle!
He’s a happy dog.
Thanks again! All best to you for the summer. Stay cool!
Hey Denise, Thought I would give you a follow up on our mini Whoodle Flynn. My husband picked him up from the airport and brought him home, he has been sleeping lots, loves snuggles and loves our kids. They are practically inseparable! We took him to the lake today, so he got a bath when we got home and he wasn’t very happy with me for a little bit. We are all so in love with him and he is just the perfect guy for us. He starts his training for a PTSD service dog in two weeks where he will go to a training center for 2 weeks and live there. Then my husband will take him there for weekly for a few hours of training until he is 6 months old. After that, he will do a 3 week training where he will live there to finish all his training. And if everything goes well, he will be finished. I’ll try to remember to update you how all the training works out. He is proving to us that he is a picky eater so we are trying to work with that, but we’re not too concerned. Here he is with my kids playing in the background
I hope this finds you healthy and doing well.
John and Dee here. We wanted to give you an up-date on our sweet Fiona and send a few photos to celebrate her first birthday, which is tomorrow. Fiona continues to be a joy and a pleasure. She is so easy to be with. She has never presented a serious behavior problem. It seems that all she lives for is to do what we want her to. She gets obvious pleasure from making us happy. Dee and I never feel like she has a favorite, she is always keeping tabs on each of us.
She still gets together with “Kodiak Bear”, a Mini Aussie Shepherd. They are great friends and play very hard together, but they are very careful and respectful. As soon as her spay surgery heals up, I plan to start her swimming lessons. We don’t heat our pool and it is finally warm enough to teach her how to find the steps and get out of the water in case she falls (or jumps) in.
We have each owned dogs most of our lives, and it is hard to compare, but we agree that Fiona is as smart, kind, loyal, and fun as any dog we have met! We love her so much.
All the best,
John L. and Dee D.
Our gorgeous Whoodle Winston! We love him so much! My 5 year old son and him are bff
Little Chief is almost about 9 months old now. Seriously, the best dog ever!!! I’ll be a Whoodle owner for life going forward, such awesome dogs. Here he is sitting proudly under his puppy pic!
I just wanted to let you know that the two Wheatens I got from you are doing very well, and we love them. I don’t have a recent picture of Oliver, but here is a photo of Murphy just taken this morning.
Just found this video from 4 years ago. Our daughter dancing with one of our Whoodles
Wanted to send you a picture of Enzo. Named Enzo after the dog in one of my favorite books “The Art of Racing in the Rain”. We just love him and everyone that sees him wants him. He’s adorable. Thank you !!!!!!
He’s a winner. Smart too, the trainer shows him what to do once, and he gets it. He’s amazing and we are all enjoying him so much. Our House is filled with love and smiles because of Enzo.
Our Mini Whoodle Piper is just about nine months old now- she has calmed down and she gently nudges us to rub her- she is such a great dog- everybody loves her, especially us!!!!
I can’t believe over a year has passed since we headed to the airport to pick up our special little package. I can’t tell you how much we adore this little guy. He has the best disposition, a few quirks like swimming every chance he can, but with his adorable face easily overlooked! If you ever need a testimonial don’t hesitate to contact me. Romeo has been such an awesome addition to our family. I don’t think a day goes by that we don’t say “he is just the cutest little thing!” I have a picture, I thought you might like to see this little guy. We don’t get snow too often but he sure had fun playing in in it!
The Santos Family,
Just had to share this review sent to us from one of our Whoodle puppy parents. I love the pic of him sleeping next to the little girl. We really strive to produce child friendly family dogs. My two children handle the puppies from birth and it make a big difference in how the puppies respond to children.
It has been a few months since we purchased our Whoodle, Wilson from you. I wanted to email you to share some pictures and a little update. Wilson has been a wonderful addition to our family; my daughter just adores him! He is a very affectionate and loving dog, we try to take him with us everywhere we can. The days we know we won’t be home much, he goes to doggy-day care which he loves.

Hi Denise, it’s Carrie.
Our little Whoodle isn’t so little anymore! As of last friday, Bosco weighs 34 lbs.
He gets a 2-3 mile walk almost every day on Balboa Island. He loves to play with other dogs, though he’s a very puppy playful and likes to swipe the other dogs in the face with his huge paws.
He’s crate trained and “puppy chimed” train as well (he rings a bell to go outside to potty) Potty training only took about 2 weeks.
He’s very good with kids and people, he’s very playful. Loves to go on car rides. Wished I had his eyelashes, they’re insane!
I swear, I feel like getting a doggy vest made w/ his breed and your web site info. Everywhere we go, specially on our walks, we are stopped with people’s questions about him!
I hope you and your kids are well.
I thought you’d like to see updated photos of Cali at nearly 11 months.
Cali in her first snow, right after being groomed, watching the birds (look at that great Wheaten look she has!) and chillaxing on the bed.
She has so much personality, and she’s growing out of her puppy hijinx. She’s been an eager learner as we train her. She has been working off-leash with my husband with great success. I love how great she is with other dogs. A little shy, but after a bit she enters in with gusto. And those eyes…oh those eyes.
Happy New Year!
I got Bob, who is now called Finn, from you a year ago this coming August. Want to let you know how much we love him. He is the sweetest dog I have ever had! He brings a lot of joy to our house. Now, we’re thinking we might possibly want another Woodle.
I’ve attached a couple of photos of him. One is with his groomer right after his first grooming. He’s quite gorgeous and the groomer I take him to absolutely fell in love with him. She calls him a “Blue Wheaten.” lol
Hi Denise. Just wanted to send you our Whoodle, Wheatley’s 6 month birthday photo. He is just such a wonderful puppy. He is very sweet, loving, and so smart. He loves to play with other dogs and all kids. We just love him. Hope all is well with you.

Just wanted to update you on the Whoodle, Betty Jean ( we renamed her Daisy) She’s doing well, she weighs 17 pounds, is on track with her obedience training, loves swimming, and most of all – her big Brother Buster, the other Whoodle we got from you last year! The two are inseparable.
Daisy is turning into a sweet (but feisty) girl, and we all love her.
Hi Denise, here’s the latest photo of Sylvester at 4 months. Still a sweet boy who now enjoys walks. We walk for about a mile each morning on the streets and then I take him to a park in the evenings for another mile or so but that’s on grass mostly. He’s very people friendly, less excited about other dogs, but he’ll get more exposure now that he has his rabies shot. Keeping his dark gray color. Handsome!
He’s the star pupil at PetSmart’s puppy training class cause he’s so calm compared to the others. There’s a doggy day care place I’ll start taking him to to get him more socialized with other dogs. He’s great with people.
He now does a good sit, down, stay, come (mostly) and roll-over. Treats help!!
I’ve been talking up Whoodles and he’s very popular and draws tons of attention wherever we go.
This little guy below is Buddy (Dallas)born 09/05/15. He just came back from a night at the kennel and a grooming so I thought to show him at his best. He is right at 20lbs and seems like he’s done growing. Quite the personality. Very loving, knows when someone is missing, only barks when you would want a dog to bark. He has learned many things. Only does his business in a box we have on the side filled with gravel. When the news is over and the tv shuts off he gets up, stands by the back door, goes in his box then comes back in and lays down in his kennel quietly until we get up in the morning. When he gets let out in the morning he is sooo happy to see us. Even when I leave the room and come back 10 minutes later it’s like I’ve come back from overseas. The Wheaten welcome is most certainly a thing.
Anyway, Buddy is a very sweet boy with a fantastic, loving temperament. He has to be with his people. As long as we are all home he can lay down and rest. Here is a pic of him. I’ll tell you, this pairing of poodle and Wheaten really does produce a pretty magical little critter!
Best to you,
Charlotte chillin’ in the hammock. She loves a afternoon nap with me in this Hammock. Cutest 6 month old mini whoodle ever
We have one of Denise’s pups we got from Celebrity Pups. When we got our adorable puppy, Amber, aka Lacey, on January 1, 2016. Denise was so helpful from day one, when I first contacted her with questions about Wheatens and Whoodles. She was always very available to answer all of my questions. This was my first time to ever work with a breeder and I was so impressed with her willingness to help. We chose our puppy from photos and watched her growth up until one week before we drove six hours to bring her home on New Year’s Day. We took her for her first vet check up on January 6, as we were advised to do to get her off to a good start at home. She was in perfect health, no parasites, worms etc. She did have a little yeast in her ears, which our vet said was very common in puppies with floppy ears and helped us to clear it up. No other health issues!! She goes to Day Care once a week to play. She is a sweet lovable dog.
Thank you, Denise for being so helpful through our whole decision making in choosing the best puppy, now an adolescent, and answering any questions I have had since bringing Amber home. Denise and her family truly love their dogs and the puppies who they help bring into this world for so many families to enjoy.
Here’s the latest review sent to us from someone who adopted one of our Whoodle pups to be her service and emotional support dog. From the looks of it, they’re going to be great for each other! Luna will be attending college classes with her new owner in the Fall. Luna’s mom had 5 of her puppies adopted for service dog work, they’re temperament was perfect for the job.
Hi Celebrity Pups
Luna is so beautiful and sweet. Very eager to please. I couldn’t be more happy with her. She never leaves my side.
Thank you again,
Six months old, Piper is part mountain goat, part kangaroo… lively, smart and totally loveable!
We keep sharing updates on our precious Miles, as we couldn’t be more in love 💓 Such a wonderful addition and growing like a leaf 🍀.
Couldn’t be more blessed with our new addition. He is PERFECT in every way.
Thank you will never do….
We just finished our first week with Brady, a mini Whoodle from Celebrity Pups (formerly Conrad). He is just the cutest dog and we are so happy! He is well behaved and has a great personality. Picking him up from the airport was easier than I thought, and after a few minutes of snuggling he was doing just fine. Can’t wait to watch him grow. Thanks again Denise!
Just an update on Bailey, our standard Whoodle. He is 14 weeks old and so intelligent and happy. Taught him to fetch this morning and he starts his puppy obedience classes this Saturday. So thankful for our newest family member.
Hope you had a wonderful Easter. Our Mini Whoodle Emma is doing really well and is a great traveler. Returned from Nashville last Sunday with her and she didn’t make a peep and rested comfortably on both flights.
She has integrated into our family as if she’s always been a part and we love her dearly. Here is a recent photo of her.
Will try to stay in better/more frequent contact and feel free to use me as a reference with any families looking to adopt one of your puppies.
I have been meaning to email you for months to tell you how much we love our Mini Whoodle puppy and it’s taken me until now. Chloe has been a delightful addition to our family. She is the happiest and most loving puppy I’ve ever known.
My boys and my parents adore her (in addition to my husband and I). She is very well loved. Just the other day, my youngest son said, “I’m so happy we got her.”
During the three days I work, she is at my parents’ house so she gets lots of attention. She is a smart little girl with lots of fun energy and personality. She has started puppy classes and is doing well.
I just wanted to give you a quick update. I hope her sister, Goldie, is doing well.

Packer is now six months old and so much fun, a bit of a mischief maker, and the best companion hiking the hills. He jumps like a kangaroo, fetches balls at lightning speed, schemes like a terrier and prances like a poodle. In short, he’s pretty perfect for us! He’s grown so fast but is likely not done yet…he’s already 40 pounds. The best is that he loves watching the Packer games and perks up when the announcers say his name. We definitely named this fantastic pup after a champion! Thank you and your kids for giving him such a great start in life. We can’t imagine life without our whoodle!
I can’t even describe to you how in love with are with this guy. Everything you talk about in your descriptions of your Whoodle puppies is 100 percent true. Just the most loving, sweet natured, smart puppy you could ask for.
He’s a total character and makes us laugh several times a day 😍
Everyone falls in love with him. Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a wonderful little guy! Will send more pictures as he gets older.
Hope all is well with you.

Just wanted to let you know that our Whoodle, Gulliver is doing really great and we adore him.
Our veterinarian was very impressed with how thorough your paperwork was and how you continued his needed vaccines, etc.
He has gained over four pounds and is growing fast! The cat has decided Gulliver has passed the introductory requirements and they are getting better acquainted. House training is Golden! Better than we could have dreamed of.
His personality seemed to have blossomed and is a super happy, loving pup. He LOVES to run tracks around the yard, tumbles and all, we call that running, “whoodling”. He is perfect.
We will keep in touch.
All the best and blessings,
Lisa & Ed G.
Hi Denise, My Whoodle Marley is getting bigger every day,
Btw…. Smartest dog and cutest ever!! My heart just melts for him.
My Whoodle Buddy’s first birthday is just a few days away!
I’m so happy with him. He’s full of play, sweet, gentle, yet feisty and he loves to run run and jumps almost as high as I am tall. We’re in training–considering agility.
We’re no longer in South Carolina; we’re in New York City, my home. Buddy loves the excitement of the people, sites, sounds and other dogs!!!
When I first received Buddy, I was in SC caring for my Mom. Mommy has passed. Buddy has helped me tremendously recover from the loss of my Mom.
I hope you enjoy attached pics.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Hi! I thought I’d send you a one year update on our Whoodle, Maggie (aka Maxie). She’s an absolute delight – funny, loving and full of goofy energy. She’s graduated from puppy training and will be starting her adult AKC training soon, as well as agility. She’s been wine tasting with us, traveled with us to the snow in Colorado and to the desert out in Salton Sea – and everywhere we go people ask us what breed she is and where we got her. She topped out at 27 pounds (pretty close to what you predicted) and is a wonderful travel companion and all around buddy. Thanks for providing us such a wonderful addition to our family! Here are a few photos of our pup!

Just wanting to send you a pic of our Whoodle Radford after his first little trimming. He was treated to a very nice smelling bath and facial (blueberry, something or other).
Doing Great…I’ve ruined him however….I can’t leave him alone and take him w/me everywhere..
Also wanted to let you know what a “Big Hit” Radford is, everywhere we take him. Last night out a woman logged onto your site to look at avail pups. Everyone just stops us, asks us a lot about him, comment on his coloring, his personality, how cute/handsome/well mannered he is.
Thank you again for bringing Radford into our lives!!
Have a very blessed Memorial Day Holiday weekend!!

Hello Denise – Just wanted to send a follow up on our Mini Whoodle, who is now called Carly. She has been the most fantastic addition to our home and family. We have become so attached to this sweet and snugly baby that we cant say thank you enough for such a wonderful pup! We hope you have a great 2017 and we hope all the other homes that get pups enjoy their bundles as much as we have enjoyed our new baby! Again – Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Happy New Year 🎉

We are so fortunate we heard about Celebrity Pups! From the minute she came out of her kennel at the airport, Miriam (now Kona) has been the sweetest thing. She has been perfect for our family and has even helped my son overcome his fears of dogs. I was so nervous given our experiences in the past and as we could not meet the puppy, but she is perfect. When I took her to our vet to get her introduced and ready to go for her next round of shots, they complemented you and said I had found a great breeder. They were impressed with your records and everything that had been done. Thank you again for all of your help and for connecting us with the perfect dog for our family. I know she is going to provide our family with a lot of laughs and will be well loved. I am forever grateful!!
Sullivan, the Standard Whoodle we adopted from you is so funny and so precious. He follows me everywhere and of course sleeps with me. He is housebroken and so far has not chewed any furniture. His favorite things to chew are the newspaper and bathroom rugs. We walk a good mile every morning and he has many people friends. Everybody stops to play with Sullivan. He loves to play in water. Loves the hose and his little swimming pool and a bath. We took him to school and his favorite part of school was recess. After class the puppies (all under five months) got to play outside for 15 minutes. Sullivan was definitely the “Pack Leader”.
We are so thrilled having Sullivan in our life. He does keep me busy and I love every minute. He is our pride and joy and I know we drive our family and friends crazy always sending them the latest pictures. Thanks to you for breeding such wonderful dogs. We and everyone we know think that Sullivan is the cutest and best dog ever!
Thank you for our wonderful Sullivan
Here is a picture of Kona who turned One today. She is so loving, playful and friendly. She loves people, especially kids and other dogs. People always comment on how beautiful she is and especially how soft and of course comment on her eyelashes! People always ask what breed she is and when I tell them Whoodle they smile and want to know all about that breed. She has accompanied me to a few of my nursing homes and is very observant and gives residents kisses. She’s going to make a wonderful therapy dog. Will be certifying her as a therapy dog but I am fortunate that I Consult in nursing homes so I can get her used to them ahead of time. She does seem to sniff out the people that need her most. There was a lady that was sitting in her room receiving treatment and Kona immediately wanted to go to her and another that waved us in because she missed her own dog. After the visit she smiled and said thank you, I really miss my dog and that helped to see yours. I will be sure to send you more updates as we progress in our therapy dog experience.
We are so happy she is a part of our lives.

Here’s a picture of my Kona (Whoodle) and her half sister Nola (Wheaten). They got together for pumpkin craving with the kids. Kona loves the pool and can’t keep her out of it, as you can tell by her wet legs. The two dogs are great friends.
And another pic of Kona-Just got groomed. I am jealous of her eyelashes!
Our Whoodle puppy Bosco is now 1 year and 7 months now and he truly is the highlight of our family. Ever since we got Bosco everyone would stop and ask what type of dog our puppy is and we would explain to everyone that he is a whoodle! Bosco is extremely intelligent and we could not have asked for a better dog!
Thanks Again for him,
Hi! Just wanted to share an update on our Whoodle puppy, “Ebony” which we renamed her Harley! She is doing great and will be 12 weeks old this coming Tuesday and fits right in with the family. She is sleeping thru the night and doing well with potty training! She loves our vet and is continuing her puppy shots. She had her first trip to the groomer today to clean her up, trim her nails and clean her ears. She did great and is well loved by everyone who she comes to know! Thank you for such a well behaved puppy!
John V. & Family
Wanted to send you a current picture of Lincoln. He is such a sweet dog and we are loving him so much. He’s been perfect for our family. We love how cuddly he is with us. He also gets along great with our other pets. He has been healthy and happy since the minute we got him. So thankful for our sweet Whoodle, Lincoln!
Hope all is well with you and your puppies! Did the fire this summer get close to you? Hope not!
