Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of Doodles do you have?
GOLDENDOODLES, sometimes Bernedoodles and Labradoodles.
How do we meet the Doodles?
Fill out the adoption application
and Book Online to set a day and time.
To ensure the health and wellness of all of our ranch visitors, staff and the pups, masks will be required during the tour and the tour takes place outside.
What Doodles are at the Ranch now?
We do not publish an available "list" publicly because we want to encourage you to visit The Ranch and personally fall in love with a puppy. When a litter you're interested in comes up, we are happy to verbally give you inventory of colors, size and genders. Also check out our Instagram Page, where we post pics and details about each available litter.
Male vs. Female Doodles?
Is there really a difference? The book says "No." We have to agree. Now, personality will vary between puppies, but not specific to a sex.
Can a puppy come home same day?
Most often, any Doodle you meet on The Ranch will be ready to take home with you that day, or we can hold them for a few days at no charge. So come prepared with payment, a blanket for the ride home, and either a travel crate or a passenger puppy-holder - we provide the rest!
Where are you located?
Santa Barbara, CA is where we care for and show the pups. We do not publish our address. The morning of your appointment, text 805-679-1816 to confirm - we will promptly reply with the address, directions and instructions for parking.
How does a deposit work?
Deposits are $450. They are paid via Venmo @doodledoodsfam and all deposits are non-refundable. So be sure that you and your family want to adopt because deposits are transferable one-time only. If you must return your puppy within the 5 day window, your adoption fee will be returned to you less the $450 NON-REFUNDABLE, NON-TRANSFERABLE DEPOSIT
Are the parents on-site?
No, the parent dogs live with our breeders in their homes as members of their families. Contract agreements with our breeders prohibit us from distributing direct communication from any party outside of Montecito Doodles. We trust our contracted team of professionals to do their job very, very well - they consistently impress us with gorgeous healthy pups we proudly invite to The Ranch.
Are there any discounts?
We frequently offer sales but generally, adoption fees are not negotiable.
Do Goldendoodles come with "papers" ?
No. Goldendoodles are a "designer breed" not recognized by the AKC, and therefore will not come with registration papers. They will however come with vaccination and deworming medical history sheet & Health Guarantee.
