Riley – Goldendoodle F1

Worked with Tom and Bubba to stud our goldendoodle Riley, and the service was fantastic. Tom maintains an organized, modern and professional facility that exceeds the local competition by far, and the studding service takes the extra mile to ensure the comfort of your pet. Tom’s stud Bubba’s genes gave a litter of 12 beautiful goldendoodles with a wide array of colors. Looking forward to work with Tom again soon!

Thrilled with Pippa, our bernedoodle!!

We purchased Pippa in July 2020 when she was 8 weeks old. This was our very first dog for our family and we were nervous at making a good choice. Tom put us at ease, constantly sent pictures of their gorgeous farm, pippa’s mom and dad and of course Pippa herself.

Fast forward almost 2 years and although we are bias, most people will agree once they spend time with her that Pippa is the best dog they’ve ever been around. She is incredibly gentle, yet playful when engaged. She is the most loving and cuddly dog yet strong and fast. She was very easy to house train and an all around easy going dog. We have 2 small children that definitely roll all over her and she is the sweetest most patient dog with them. We could not ask for a better dog. Oh and people constantly stop us when we are out on walks, always remarking how beautiful she is! We love her so much and are so happy with our choice to buy from First Choice Family Pet.

Tom and his family were wonderful! I always had dogs growing up but I moved out and wanted my own. My cousin got a Bernedoodle from Tom for his family and raved about how clean and safe they were! I immediately knew they were people I wanted to buy from. We got Kash in July 2021 and we have people stop us CONSTANTLY asking his breed and telling us how cute he is. He LOVES people and at 10 months is so gentle with my best friends 6 month old baby. He was super easy to potty train basically came trained It was wonderful. He is the best dog I could ever ask for. I could not imagine my life without him! Tom was so easy to communicate with and always answered texts, calls and emails. I highly recommend!

Best dog we’ve ever had

Our two year old Bernedoodle, Huckleberry, is by far the best dog we’ve ever had. She is mild-mannered, affectionate, and was very easy to train. She is eager to please and easy to be with …. just a delight in all respects. She is very good with babies and newcomers, and a steady companion for us. We really loved buying her from such a clean, happy, well-run kennel where it was evident that the dogs are well-cared for. We highly recommend!!!

Working with Tom was easy and kept our mind at ease as we were waiting for our pup! We picked Rizzo up at 17 pounds and is now almost 90 pounds!

He is little to no shed and the most lovable gentle giant!!

Love home so muc!!!

Stud service for 2 females

I ended up having both of my dogs ready to breed at the same time and I’m so thrilled I found FirstChoice Puppies. Tom was so informative and knowledgeable about all of his dogs and also what would be best matching for my dogs. He was extremely patient and made sure all my questions were answered and I found what I wanted.

With the progesterone testing, both of my girls had optimal breedings with his studs and produced beautiful litters of 9 puppies each. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience or result for my girls .

English bulldog

My husband and I recently purchased an English bulldog puppy. We absolutely love her. Her name is Rosie and she is a sassy, smart, and lastly a joy to have in our home.


Best boy ever!!!

We adopted an English bulldog puppy in February and Tom was wonderful during the whole process. He was very attentive and always was responsive to our many texts and questions!! He sent us pictures and updates of our growing boy and had him all beautified when we got to pick him up!!! Barry is the best boy ever…so sweet, loving, and great with our three kids and older American bulldog. This process has been so amazing that we are already purchasing another bulldog from Tom right now!!! We are so excited to meet our new little girl next month! Facilities were very clean and you can tell they take great care of their babies 🙂 We are forever greatful to have found Tom and his family!!!

A Perfect Family Dog

I Highly Recommend!
Our dog, Marvel a standard bernedoodle , is healthy, happy and great with children (and our cats).
Tom was easy to communicate with and provided all the information up front in an easy to understand manner.
I will certainly work with him again when we get our next puppy!

I wish I could rate 10 stars!

Not only was Tom accommodating, trustworthy and knowledgeable, he really shows that he cares for his dogs as family. We’re more than happy we chose to drive nearly 4 and a half hours to add Bruce to our family- it was completely worth it. Thank you for everything!

Mike Carlino

Great first-time experience!

We felt very supported, and informed, in the process of breeding our dog for the first time. First Choice Family Puppies was very helpful to us, explaining thoroughly the process and timeline, and provided prompt follow up and support to our questions! The information we received was very accurate, and we were able to birth a successful first litter of puppies!

Stud service- Tucker

This past month we bred our mini Aussiedoodle with Tucker, a miniature poodle! The facility was very clean, organized, and even had cameras in each dog’s space to have a constant eye out for them! I felt at peace and very comfortable with leaving my girl there overnight, which I normally would not do. Tom even spoiled my little girl with some tasty wet food-which she loves. I am happy with my decision of using First Choice Family Puppies for our stud service.

The best breeder and pups

Got our Bernedoodle pup from First Choice about a year ago and he’s been an absolute gem and the most wonderful addition to our family. He has the sweetest, most loving temperament and he’s such a handsome boy. Really couldn’t be happier with our dog and First Choice

Richard Dixon

Our lil Rosie, aka “Betty”

We began our search for our new bulldog puppy when we came across Tom with bulldogs for sale back in December. Tom was very responsive and answered any questions we had. We initially were in contact with Tom in another bulldog pup on his page but she was not available; however he mentioned a new litter and sent us a pic of Betty. We fell
In love instantly. Tom kept us updated on her progress and at 8 weeks old we drove from our little town in Medway to his home in PA. She did very well on our 6 hour journey home. Betty (now called Rosie) is 7 months old and has brought our family much happiness. She can be a little spitfire with her personality and sass. She is the 2nd bulldog we have owned and we enjoy her immensely.. would definitely recommend getting your pup here if looking for a great English bulldog!

The happiest dog mom!

I have had dogs growing up while living with my parents, but Duncan was the first dog I got on my own. I have never been more in love! The breeder was great to work with and exceeded my expectations. I always get compliments on Duncan’s coloring because he truly is a perfect tri-color, which is exactly what I was looking for. I will be purchasing another dog from this breeder sometime in the near future.

Past Customer

Breeder was very accommodating and pleasant to purchase our puppy from. Even when she had a problem with her puppy area (that was no fault to the breeders) they were fast to assist in the payment of the necessary medical attention. We have had zero problems with our bernedoodle puppy and couldn’t ask for a better dog. She is truly just a loving, laid-back, goofy, beach-loving pup.

Braedon StClair

Beautiful Bernadoodle

We got our Bernadoodle puppy (Bernie) from Tom and his family in February 2021 when she was 8 weeks old. She is the most sweet and lovable dog and very healthy. She is very playful and fun, and particularly loves to play in the water and snow. She is just a big bundle of joy (almost 100 lbs) and was very easy to potty train as well as basic obedience. The process of purchasing the puppy was very easy, and Tom was great at sending pictures and videos of her after she was born and before we picked her up. I highly recommend this family breeder.

Robyn Cameron

Amazing Breeder

I bought our family dog in 2020 and will never look back. He is the superstar of our family. I couldn’t say one bad thing about my dog or First Choice Breeders. I highly recommend them to everyone who is looking for a Bernadoodle. Every time I bring my dog (Miles) anywhere they ask me what kind of dog he is and complement how cute he is. I alway recommend First Choice Breeders to them.

Highly Recommend

We got Bella from Tom and his family back in February 2020 and could not be happier. Tom made the process of meeting her and taking her home very smooth. She was easy to train and has the best personality. We can’t imagine life without her.

Rubina Mathew

Best dog ever

We decided to buy from First Choice Family Puppies after our kids bought a Bernedoodle puppy from them for our grandchildren. After a family vacation with their dog, we fell in love and knew this was the breed for us as well! We visited the kennel to meet the new litter of Bernedoodles, and were so very impressed with the cleanliness and good care the dogs obviously got. Our puppy came to us healthy and happy, and has grown into a devoted and affectionate companion. We cannot recommend this breeder highly enough!

Surpassed Expectations!!!

First Choice Family Puppies provided us with a fantastic experience in choosing and purchasing our brand-new Bernedoodle puppy. They surpassed all our expectations in every regard. The Family is loving and caring and raises all their dogs with love and supreme attention to detail in every way. The health and safety of the animals are of utmost concern. Every detail of the dogs and their background and genetic make-up are carefully checked. Like most people we were concerned with not wanting to find ourselves dealing with a “puppy mill.” After meeting the people at First Choice Family Puppies, we never had another worry or doubt.
Our new 10-week-old Bernedoodle puppy, Emma, is a healthy and happy delight and an instant member of our family. Thank you, First Choice, for making this all possible.

Best personality

Our EllieMae is amazing. We couldn’t ask for a better personality. She is extremely patient with everyone including our young child. Our grandchild (yes we are there watching) pulls on her without reaction. She is the most gentle giant. She’s a biggon, 100 lbs, but I would seriously have a few of her. Truly amazing animal!

Excellence – Highly recommend

We used First Choice Family Puppies stud service and could not recommend a more professional service. From my very first inquiry phone call, until the day of pick up, Tom answered every question I had, gave sound advice, and was very patient with us and our dog. He went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable leaving our dog with him and making sure that things were done in a timely, safe manner. The facilities are clean, safe, and welcoming. We are already planning on using them again for our other breeding dog. The time and attention that was given to our dog was so appreciated. We are excited to partner with First Choice for many years to come!

Great Experience with our Bernedoodle

I got my standard Bernedoodle from First Choice Family Puppies in January of 2020 and had a great experience! From the first time I reached out to ask about the litter, to checking in after we brought our puppy home, Tom was always responsive and informative. When my family and I came to meet the puppies we were encouraged to take our time meeting each of them while he and his family answered any questions I had. Although I grew up with dogs, Luna is the first dog I purchased on my own, so it was important to me to trust the breeder before making my decision. 2 years later, Luna is now 90 pounds, is still convinced she is a lap dog, and is full of personality. She is clever, goofy, and loyal as the breed is described (“gentle” is challenging at her size, but she has her moments)! On top of that, she is a beautiful looking dog that many people stop and ask about. She has kept her tri-color coat with minimal fading. Overall she has been a wonderful addition to our family and I would recommend First Choice to others looking to add a furry friend to their family.

Amazing pup!

I am so excited we chose First Choice Family Puppies for our standard Bernedoodle. EllieMae is such a delightful pup. She’s goofy, playful, well-mannered and has the sweetest temperament. She’s exceeding our expectations in size, she’s now 10 months and about 95# but just the biggest teddy bear ever. She’s fantastic with our small child, our older Shih-poo and anyone she meets on our walks. We couldn’t have asked for a better addition to our home. The facilities were clean when we picked her up at 8 weeks and Tom and great to work with throughout the process, providing pictures of her so we could see how she was developing and changing before we could get her. I highly recommend them.

Karen Hamer

Very well bred dog

We are extremely happy we chose a bernedoodle as our family pet. Tom and his family breed some of the best quality dogs you will find. The grounds a facility are top notch. You can be sure you will get a great dog. Our lottie is 15 months old now and is over 100 pounds. She has a lot of energy, loves to hang out with the kids and never misses a chance to go camping. Thanks to tom and his family for breeding top quality pets

Knowledgeable, prompt service

I really appreciated the depth of knowledge that Tom has. He was very prompt in replying to calls & messages. I was very pleased with the quality of the dogs to select from. Each one is fully tested so you can be confident in your selection. I also greatly appreciated the clean, healthy environment for the dogs.
