DEC 2012  Hi Micah.  Just wanted to let you know we picked up Kati last night.  She is such a sweetheart!  We are calling her Daisy, and my boys are playing with her now and having so much fun.  Thanks so much, Merry Christmas!
DEC 2012   Wanted to let you know that OUR Kandi is doing well! She mastered the stairs on our deck as soon as she saw Nala do it once. Has she done stairs before? She was fantastic on the car ride and hasn't been to bad with crate training. I think she likes her new big sister.....

JAN 2012 We are so happy with our new puppy, Kandi. We are calling her Amber. She is wonderful with the children and very intelligent. Thank you!   L Bree-Anne
JAN 2012 We adopted little Cade, we call him Charlie. He is so intelligent, already knows how to sit and shake and is already potty trained! He's wonderful! Thanks so much!    S Leedy

........good to talk with you yesterday, Gloria.  as I mentioned to you on the phone, our "doodles" are blessing our lives with their loving affection, playful attitudes & sweet natures.  Although larger now (70 pounds at 10 months old) than we expected, their good behavior allows us to not be overwhelmed. It has been a joy to see them grow up and their loving attachment to one another and to us.

Jan 2014,  Our Caesar, formerly Edger, is an amazing puppy! He is very smart, a quick learner and great with our kids. I would recommend your puppies to anyone who is looking for a family dog.

Hi Gloria and family,
I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season and looking towards the new year! Nevada has been renamed to Alonzo "Lonz", to match our family of "A" names. He's very sweet and has nice manners already! He heels to my side, sits and generally let's us know when he needs to go out. We have a few accidents here and there- but it's normally when he doesn't want to take a break from playing with his new kid brother and sister.

It turns out the other puppy he was shipped with lives right down the road from us- also on the lake. We are going to get puppy dates together once the weather breaks.

Thanks again for everything! We love our newest member of the family!

Hello Gloria!  My husband David and I drove from Michigan last year on April 6th to pick out one of your puppies.  You even were so generous to give us a $50 discount because of our work with a mission organization called New Tribes Mission - taking the gospel to people in remote jungles of the world to teach them about our Lord.

We came and picked out Saville for his fluffiness and feistiness!  and he sure has lived up to both of those descriptions!  But he really has an incredibly fun and even temperament.

We named him Graham.  He is so smart and social and perfectly excited and lazy at all the right times. 
We work at a New Tribes Mission training school in Michigan and we have students over all the time.  They've all become great friends with Graham and sometimes they'll even stop by the house in the afternoon to see if they can take Graham on a walk!  He loves it!:) We've done all the training with him we can through PetSmart's training classes and he's excelled...REALLY so smart!!!!!  He's about to take a test in the next couple weeks for his Canine Good Citizen Award which officially recognizes him as a consistently well behaved dog and us as responsible owners who have consistent control over our dog.  It will mean we can take him into some home improvement stores and some hotels and other locations as well.

Our experience with your family as breeders and with the quality of pup we've received from you has been above and beyond 100% satisfaction.  We couldn't be any more pleased. 

I would love to send some pictures of Graham all grown up (mostly).  He's just over 75lbs and potentially still growing! 
Let me know if I can send some pictures, I'd love to hear from you!

Hope your family is doing well.:) Kristi

Hi Javin, I just wanted to write you to give an update on Nando (who is now named Whiskey)! After a very long day of traveling (their second flight was delayed over two hours) the puppies made it to Milwaukee. They were a bit lethargic at first but after a bit of water and some food they perked up quite a bit.

He has been such a joy to have! Such a wonderful personality and loves being my shadow.......

Maverick (Kadin) is up to 45 lbs! He LOVES hiking and swimming. He does tons of tricks and is the sweetest little puppy we’ve ever known. He couldn’t be any more perfect. Not sure if you saw my last email below but hope all is well! Thanks!

It will be over a year now since Mabel (formerly Elsie)  joined our family.  She is truly one of the sweetest, smartest, loveliest dogs I've ever had and such a big part of our family.  She was potty trained in less than 3 weeks, and has never had an accident. She has perfect manners and is perfect when left home alone.   People stop us on the street to ask to pet her. Everyone that meets her loves her. 

You may laugh, but I think she is almost human.  She watches TV, attends doggie daycare 3 times per week, rides the doggie bus, and has a vocabulary sit, heel, stay, down, shake, park, go potty, walk, ball, drop it, go get Daddy and  get Hope.  Mabel loves our resident orange male tabby cat as well and they chase each other.  Her favorite past time is to play fetch with a tennis ball.  She is a natural retriever.   She is my velco dog and follows me from room to room, never in a needy way.  I truly can go on and on about her! 

Please let Gloria know that main reason for writing this email is to tell you never to worry about this puppy, Mabel will only know love her whole life.  We will always have her best interest at heart.  Here are some of my favorite pics: 1) Christmas 2013 2) at walk during daycare with her friends 3) Halloween 2013 4) her daily hugs 5) 1 year birthday celebration.

I've been begging my husband for another puppy from Maple Valley, and I may get my wish in late 2015 :)

Hi Rabers!, Just wanted to send you an update on our Kashi. We decided to keep her name that she was given by you guys. She is our little princess. We had been looking at her on your website forever before we made the decision. When you updated your website and added descriptions of each puppy, you described her at "cuddly and laid back".. we knew it was meant to be! She hasn't changed much. She is such a little snuggler. We are grateful that we got such a perfect puppy to add to our family. We always get stopped by people telling us how adorable she is and how she looks like a little teddy bear. She will be 7 months old this month (born June 22nd) and is about 30 pounds already. She is such a smart little girl and knows a ton of commands. Kashi absolutely loves playing in the snow here in Northwest Indiana. Here are some pictures of Kashi!

Sincerely, Cassie and Chris
Hello, just thought I would update u on Jaspen who we renamed Hitch. He is doing great and is now 4 months old and a great addition to our family. Hitch loves water and snow and is great with the kids thank u for everything and we will be back for another gooldendoodle.

Just wanted to update you, Sherri now Stella is doing great! Her and our other puppy, Guinness, are becoming quick friends. She is doing great on potty training, and is working on kennel training. She has also became a puppy model at our local restaurant haha here are some pictures! We can update you again when she's a bit older! She's a big hit with all the dogs in our building and the neighborhood, thank you guys!

....Zeke (previous name is Tobias) is 7 month now, and he's doing very well. He's such a great dog---Smart, intelligent, well behaved, obedient, healthy, loving, good temperament, easy to take care of, and easy to train. He use to get us the newspaper at the end of our driveway every morning, it was like he was born to get the newspaper! He also loved sports and seemed to know how to dribble a basketball. We do love him so much! He can get along well with our another smaller 2 years old goldendoole Pudding, and they are intimate friends, they like each other:) Thank you so much for your successful business and bring our most important family member,

I put some photos on ZEKE in the attachment:)

Best wishes, Shuhong & Daobin

Hi Micah and Rose!

Just wanted to shoot you guys an update of my little guy! Louie, (formerly Matt from Lucky and Nikki's litter) is doing amazingly well! He is loved by all who meet him and he has many admirers. He is potty training like a pro and will be starting puppy classes soon. His favorite things are giving puppy kisses and playing fetch with his mom!

I recommend Maple Valley to everyone who inquired about him (which are many, many people).  :)

Have a lovely weekend!

Hi Micah,
Wanted to let you know Asher is doing wonderfully. He was paper trained within a week and started going to the door in the 1st 2 weeks.
He's learned to walk next to me without a leash and heels when on the leash. His tricks include sit, right and left paw, cime to his name and my whistke, down and crawl across the room. We're going to begin the STOP command  - tough one.
All of this and he is just shy of 4 months. He is kind and gentle and growing like a weed - he was 11 lbs June 3rd, 22 lbs July 1st and 37 lbs August 3rd.
I know you don't have a regular desk top but I've included some pictures - all a month apart- that naybe you could look at elsewhere.
Thanks much

We wanted to send an update on Oliver. He just turned 5 months old and we are SO in love with him! His dad is Nacho and his mom is Teresa. We couldn't ask for a better companion. He is friendly, smart and such a joy to be around. Thank you for the opportunity to welcome this sweet boy into our lives.

Braedon and Chelsea

Ps. We couldn't help but notice every single one of Oliver's brothers and sisters went to homes in the same state we reside - Illinois. We would LOVE for him to meet them and play! Is there anyway you could give us some sort of contact information? Thanks so much!

Hi!  Mocha (from Kristies Litter) is the name for our mini golden doodle and he is doing very well! He is six month old and about 23 pounds. I can't describe the accurate size of him and I attached a photo to you instead. We are so glad to live the lives with Mocha!

Thank you so much.
Hi Rabers!
        We wanted to send you an update on our mini doodle, Kyla (she was named Pansy, from Polly and Nacho's Dec. 18th litter). We are so very pleased with her and she was such a great addition to our family! She slept through the night right from the get-go, was easy to potty train, learns commands in minutes, and we get compliments from everyone she meets. She is 6 months old and is about 21 lbs. I have attached several photos to show her growth.
      Our vet was amazed at our initial visit, he wanted to know where we had gotten her because she was in such good health...he stated he had seen many doodles that were not responsibly bred and had lots of health and socialization issues. Not our Kyla! She is perfect and we couldn't be more pleased! Thank you again so very much!

Hi Rose! Just wanted to update you about Cameron who we named Enzo, he has been with us since February this year. I can't begin to explain how much joy and love he has brought to our lives, he is loving, smart, well behaved, playful and just adorable! Everywhere we take him people inquiry about him, his breed and where we got him from, which we have obviously given the best recommendations about Maple Valley Puppies. I wish we could send you some photos of him, he is just beautiful inside and out!

Thanks again,

Shade (now named Rev) is out of Sheila & Sammy's litter born June 6th,
2016. He has been a great pup thus far. Vet say's he is extremely healthy.
He is fantastic around all the grand kids and neighbors kids. He is a
bundle of energy as well. Everywhere we take him people just love him and
want to know more about him and where we got him. He is turning out to be
my wife's baby and my buddy. We took him on his 1st road trip to the beach
and he did fantastic in the car not mention had a blast playing at the
beach. He also loves to go camping with us on the weekends. Can't thank
you all enough for a great pup and will always recommend you all to anyone
that inquires.

Thanks again, Wade & Christine Stevens

I just wanted to let you know how much we LOVE our Ruby ( formerly Carly, from Nacho and Kristie's litter). She was potty trained within 2 weeks, and knew multiple commands by ten weeks and has passed all her puppy training courses. She will be going into training to be a therapy dog. She will be 8 months old in November and is the sweetest puppy ever. She attended over 60 baseball games her first 4 months here and loves everyone she meets. I would definitely get another puppy from Kristie and Nacho. Let me know if they will ever breed together again! Here are some pictures of our sweetheart

We wanted to send you a message to thank you and let you know about Sherlock.. Sherlock is a puppy of Sandy and Donder. He is the gentlest and kindest dog ever! When we noticed how special his demeanor was, we had him trained and certified as a Therapy dog. He visits memory care facilities, nursing homes, schools, and mental health facilities. He not only brings joy to our family but works to make a difference in the lives of others. On a recent visit, an elderly resident remarked, "Sherlock loves me. I can see it in his eyes." What a remarkable gift he is to everyone he meets. Thank you again for breeding beautiful puppies.
Just thought I would share with you a picture of our son's new best friend, Polo. On day 2, you cannot find one without the other!
Hi! I just thought I'd share a few pictures with you of our puppy Lilly, previously Shannon of Sheila& Shannon's litter. She is truly the most amazing puppy, she doesn't bite or bark. She loves people. She potty trained very fast and loves running in the backyard. She is very smart, we now have her enrolled in puppy training #3 at 9 months old. We love her so much! We cannot thank you enough for such a great puppy and have recommended you to anyone who asks.

Thank you so much!

Hi Owen! I just wanted to write a few lines and give you an update on our Stella (Dalisha). She will be 17 weeks in two days and 20 lbs.  We are just in love with her.  She is exactly what our little family needed.  She fit right in with her big brother and sister Titus and Margo.  Her and Titus have become the best of friends and are inseparable.  She is full of spunk and SUPER SMART.  We all laugh at her silliness and her little facial expressions. She's got a lot of personality and is so lovable.  She walks around on her hind legs begging to be picked up and carried.  I guess you can say she's spoiled rotten.  She loves to go for rides in the car and any squeaky toy she can find. She has one more round of puppy shots before I get her spayed.  Everyone at the veterinary office thinks she is just a delight.  Thank you for raising such wonderful bernedoodles.  I've had a lot of people ask where I got her from and I recommended maple valley puppies.  Thank you so much for our little Stella Mae.  We love her so much!

Just wanted to write you and let you know how our sweet puppy is doing! Tyler (from Teresa and Nacho), who is now named Wrigley (Go Cubs) is the BEST puppy. He is so lovable, calm natured, gentle, and smart!! He has been doing a pretty intense training. He goes 3X a week all day and is learning so fast! He lays down and stays put while we eat dinner or put the kids to bed.
He couldn't have been a better addition to our family!! Thank you! We recommend Maple Valley Puppies often!! I would like to add pictures but not sure how. IF you email me back I can then send some pictures!

Hi, just wanted to give a little update on Lilly Fay, (formally Fay from Nacho and Freedoms November litter). Lilly will be six months on the 12th and is currently 16 pounds, I don't feel she will get much bigger. She has been the greatest little dog and such a blessing to have. She is super smart, funny, and loving! She loves to go shopping at Target, Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond, and anywhere else that is dog friendly! We love our little doodle and couldn't thank y'all enough for our perfect little girl!


We are the proud parents of Sunny (Connor from Nacho and Carmel's August
2016 litter). We are SOO unbelievably in love with him -- he is
the sweetest most lovable thing and he brings so much joy. We call him Mr
Enthusiasm because he is the happiest, healthiest, most enthusiastic
puppy on earth. I've attached some pictures :) We are having so much fun
with him we are talking about adopting another puppy.
Thank you!

Hi Raber Family!

I wanted to give you an update on our precious, Luna-June (formally
Felicia) from Nicole and Nachos November 2016 litter. Luna is absolutely
one of the sweetest and well mannered dogs I have ever owned. She is currently 7 months old and weighs in at 22.5lbs. I knew instantly when I saw her, she was the one for us. Luna-June is very intelligent, loving, playful, and loyal. Luna can sit, stay, lay-down, roll-over, give
high-fives, plays fetch, loves the water, hiking, and running endlessly.
My family and I are so very blessed to have her in our lives. We are so
fortunate to have had the opportunity to connect with you and bring our
doodle home.
I look forward to adding another pup to our family some day!!
