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 have a 10 month old female whoodle that I got from Denise’s litter of Whoodle puppies. Her parents are Prince Charming and Sweet Pea. We ended up naming our girl Cali (short for California), She’s Awesome! Everyone who meets her thinks she is so beautiful and they often say she looks like a bear cub. Cali has been an absolute joy. I think she is done growing now and weighs in at about 38 lbs.
Cali is our 3rd whoodle, I unfortunately lost my 3 year old whoodle (purchased from another breeder) to cancer of the spinal cord so Cali came into our home to be a companion for our male mini whoodle Sam. They are the best of friends and inseparable, they also love our 2 cats, often times the 4 of them hang out together. Cali is a very affectionate and intelligent dog who is easily trained. We are almost finished a 6 week session of obedience school and it’s been quite successful.
I had the pick of litter just based on my deposit being first. Communication with Denise was very good, she provided regular feedback about the puppies individual personalities throughout their development. As I recall there were 4 or 5 females to choose from, physically they all looked pretty much the same so my choice was made based on what she and her little daughter told me about them. Since I live in the Toronto Canada area, all updates were via email and pictures and videos were often included.
I was a bit concerned about having my puppy shipped via air, but that turned out to be just fine. Denise called me when Cali was dropped off at the airport and I called her when I picked her up here in Toronto.
I’ve attached a couple of pictures.
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
Hope all is well! Here are some new pics of Zane. You were right, get stopped everywhere we go. People always want to know more about him.
Give your name to each and everyone, lol
He’s doing great with his Service Dog Training.
Hi Denise. Chocolate Chip is now called Rambo. He is doing great. Adjusted right away to life with us. He is growing a lot. Now weighs 7 1/2 pounds. He has a great personality and lots of energy. And by the way, he’s a big eater! He really is chowing down.
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.
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,
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!
Hope this finds you well and looking forward to a great Easter. I’m finally getting around to sending you photos of our Mini Whoodle, Tess – she’s just awesome – we love her to pieces.
All our best,
Mark & Sarah Carbone
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.
Cathy & Lee B
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!
Thank you Celebrity Pups for my hunk of a puppy, Carl. He’s almost 1 and wins hearts wherever he goes. ❤
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.
An update on Hamlet…. it took a few weeks but our Boxer Bella finally warmed up to Hamlet and they are now BFF’s! Just love this little guy💕
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!!
Dion and Cindy DeLude
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 🎉
Kevin and Lisa S.
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.
The Hildebrand Family
My husband is an Army veteran with five deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. He didn’t come back the same. And when he left the Army after 14 years, he had an extreme case of PTSD. Simple tasks like going to the grocery store or even out to dinner and the movies gave him panic attacks and he had fear just to live every day life. I was in search of not a cure but something to help him cope.
I did some research and found that maybe a service dog would be in his best interest. I was a little picky about finding the right dog and when I mean picky I mean non-shedding! After much research I came across Denise and Celebrity Pups. I felt like I needed to contact her. I explained our situation and she was very helpful and she said she had the perfect dog for us and offered it at no cost to us for my husband’s service to his country!
We drove 8 hours to meet our new family member. She instantly connected with my husband! After we brought her home, we wanted to test out her easy going temperament and at just four months old we decided to take her with us to the movies. We thought that she wasn’t going to be able to sit through it, being a puppy but she did! She laid right next to my husband the entire movie. We kept testing what we could do with a puppy and she can do anything! She was super easy to train and was a pro by six months old! She goes on vacations with us and never leaves my husband’s side. She even has a seat to ride on his motorcycle. Since having our Charli-Girl my husband no longer goes through his anxiety attacks and even enrolled in our local college where he takes Charli with him to his classes.
We couldn’t imagine our life without her. She has saved him. She knows when he’s stressed and having an attack and calms him down. She even helps with his nightmares at night. When he starts to shake in his sleep she lays on his chest and slowly wakes him up. I no longer worry about leaving my husband at home while I am at work because of Charli. I don’t think I can ever thank Denise enough for donating Charli to us and bringing her into our lives. She is currently almost 10 months old and doing great. Getting a Whoodle was the best decision we have ever made!
This is the latest review from one of our families we donated a Whoodle puppy to. This family had adopted a daughter who suffered from severe anxiety so they contacted us looking for a service dog. We told them we had the perfect pup for them. A little black Whoodle who their daughter named Phoebe.
Oh Denise! Our Whoodle, Phoebe is doing so well! She lives with Michelle the Service Dog trainer during the week and then comes home on the weekends where we get to practice the latest training.
Phoebe just started alerting to our daughter, Faithie. She isn’t even six months yet. During church on Sunday, she sensed Faithie’s anxiety, licked her feet, then she placed her paw on her and sat up and looked directly in Faithie’s eyes. Faithie was sitting by our trainer and she taught her to respond to Phoebe. Phoebe laid down with her head resting on Faithie’s foot. Halfway thru the service she moved her head but had a paw on Faithie the whole time. Faithie is getting attached and they are bonding. We are so impressed with how smart she is and how in tune she is with Faithie’s needs at such a young age.
I will keep sending updates. We are so grateful to you for giving her to us!!
Hi Denise! Just a quick thank U for the best puppy ever! Our whole family is so in love with our Wheaten!
She is 6 months old, a ball of energy, sweet snuggler, and wonderful friend!
Thanks again all the way from Louisiana!!!
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!
Merry Christmas, Denise!
Our Wheatens, Shamus (on the right) and Riley (left) are doing very well. They are very happy, healthy, and active in Texas. And a little spoiled!
They are the best dogs ever!

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
Hi, I adopted Woody the Standard Whoodle back in the end of June and just wanted to send a few pics of this sweet little guy. His coloring is so cool, a lot of orange and dark brown almost like a calico cat.
We love him so much – he has such a sweet temperament and we couldn’t be happier 🙂
He is smart and mellow, we are totally obsessed with him!
Attached a video of him. His first day at the beach
Thank you Denise for having such a wonderful dog “Tatsu” he has been a great addition in our life for the past year!
He is awesome!
