Another Testimonial Tuesday for the books! This update comes from Jill who adopted one of our Miniature/Medium retired Breeding Females, Lil Black Dress.

“Lil is a truly wonderful girl. She has just enough “trouble” in her to make her fun. Thanks for adding so much fun into my life. I really love this little girl.”

Thank you so much for the update on Lil, we’re so happy she went to a forever home that will give her all the attention, spoiling, and relaxation she deserves.

Testimonial Wednesday?

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

We’ve received an update on Presley who is just too cute not to share!

“We brought home our puppy about a month ago and I already feel the need to tell about how amazing it has been! First of all, we felt so comfortable before picking up Presley because of how helpful the women at Manor Lake were. They sent plenty of pictures and answered all of our questions about our puppy-to-be. I was in love the instant I laid eyes on Presley and he was everything they had described him to be and more.

Since then I have just come to adore our new furry friend. He is so smart, training has been a breeze so far. He has a personality that almost resembles a human, and picks up on everything already. Presley is full of energy, but not to the amount that could drive someone crazy. He is almost four months old and I am still waiting for the period where most dog owners never wish to return to!

Kim and Charrice really know how to run an ethical business and have shown me that their customers’ happiness is their priority. I get asked almost every day where I got my dog and I always get Manor Lake’s name out there.

I could not be happier with my dog, he is already my most loyal companion and he is such a light in my life. His personality is one of a kind and I think that is so important for dog owners. I wouldn’t change a thing from this whole process for the world!”

We just received an update on Zoobie! We are so very thankful when we hear from Manor Lake families with news and updates on our dogs. To see how they have grown from adorable puppies to magnificent adults is one of the many reasons we share thanks this week and every day of the year.

“Hope you are well!!! Zoobie and I moved to SF 2 years ago and are loving it. Her mom was petunia and dad was Mozart. My friends the ellisons adopted Digger from you, the Harts got Chowder, Allison in SF got Teddy, and now an acquaintance, Lina, is moving from the UK to NYC and wants to get a puppy like Zoobie from you! She will be emailing you soon, so please help her understand the whole process. I know she’d love a pup that looks like Zoobie.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

Katherine and Zoobie

Here’s an Update we just received from The Hansen Family on Willow, their 15 week old puppy from a Dalton + Clifford Pairing.

“We just love her spirited personality. She wants to be with us all the time and loves to play with Grady. They are getting along and she is learning from him. It was amazing how she learned to potty train from him. She watches everything he does and follows along, although she is not shy about getting her needs met 🙂
Just like Grady, Willow is smart and trains so easily….she was housebroken in about a week and has learned to sit, lay down and come. She is social, happy and healthy. We are also taken with her beauty. Her coat and color are stunning. We are thankful for the love and care that goes into all of the dogs in your program.”

“We Love Our Australian Labradoodle!”

Friday, March 20th, 2015

HaileyThat moment when someone sees their Australian Labradoodle for the first time is magic! The excitement and instant bond is tangible.

We love to hear stories and updates from families about their new companions—stories like this one:

“We just wanted to share one of our favorite pics of Hailey. She just turned 5 months and she is a doll. We absolutely love the dog Hailey has become, and each day we can’t believe the joy she brings into our lives, and the lives of everyone she encounters.

People ask to take her picture, and tell us almost every day she is the cutest dog they have ever seen. She’s perpetually happy, playful, and loving. We recently took her to Cannon Beach, OR for her first romp off leash on the beach, and she was amazing under voice command.

She made lots of friends (dogs and people) and she was a great hotel guest, as she’s crate trained and sleeps anywhere as long as she has her crate. She attended four puppy classes, and upon graduation her teacher told us she was the friendliest dog in the class. We use the gentle leader from time to time, and that helps her stay focused on our commands.

We tell everyone who asks where we got her, and rave about the job you all do to ensure your pups have a great spirit and are wonderful companions. Thank you!”

It’s stories like these that keep us going—keep ’em coming!

Checking in with Manor Lake Chief Brody

Monday, August 25th, 2014

We heard from Lisa and her family in regards to her lovely Manor Lake Australian Labradoodle and we just had to share! We’re so excited to hear from our families and to hear such wonderful things about our dogs. I tell many people, you just have to have one to understand. But, Lisa does a pretty good job summing it up! Thank you so much Lisa and all your family for making Brody a part of your lovely family.

Brody 4  Brody 10

Brody 7

Hi Kim-


Hope all is well.


It’s been over 2 months now since Brody joined our family and we can’t tell you how much we love him. He’s the best dog ever!!


He is now 5 months old and about 30 pounds. He was groomed for the first time 2 weeks ago and is absolutely gorgeous. Wherever we go we are asked what kind of dog is he and then told he is SO cute. And SO calm, especially for a puppy. His color is beautiful. Shall I go on?! If I had a dollar for each time I heard these things I’d be a billionaire!


And boy is he smart! He knows his basic commands…sit, stay, down, come, no, heel, leave it, and we’re working on heel. He was completely house trained only 2 weeks after we got him, at only 14 weeks old. He absolutely hated the crate overnight so after about 3 weeks, we stopped using it because he was house trained anyway. He slept on our bed for about a week but then decided he was more comfortable on the floor so that’s where he chooses to sleep each night. During the day when left alone for a couple hours, he has been gated in the kitchen but jumped the gate earlier this week. Because he was a good boy and didn’t cause any harm, we decided to keep him loose in the house for the past few days and he’s been totally fine. We just can’t believe our 5 month old puppy is SO well-behaved!


We’ve been on vacation (here) for almost 2 weeks now. We are always outside here and Brody is with us almost always. We’ve taken him hiking several times this summer and after the first couple of times, we decided to try him off-leash, so he could have more freedom. As hoped, he stuck by our side the entire time, even when other dogs were encountered. He absolutely loves being outside, whether we’re hiking, biking, walking, kayaking or just hanging out in the backyard. He’s still timid when it comes to swimming but he’s warming up to it.


Brody is the perfect dog and we can’t thank you enough!! We love him SO much, especially our daughter Ella. She’s 5 years old so she and Brody are perfect companions, always running and playing together. They tire eachother out everyday!


Attached are some recent pics of Brody. We’ve recommended Manor Lake to so many people who’ve asked about him because we truly believe he’s the best dog, and exactly as you described him. We feel incredibly lucky! And did I mention Brody is my husband’s first dog ever?!


Thank you, thank you, thank you!



Lisa, Dave, Ella & Chief Brody

Update on Manor Lake’s Avery

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Jamie (Avery) Update 8.18.14

We thought you might like this picture of Avery. She has been such a wonderful addition to the family. I can’t imagine not ever having her. She’s been exactly the kind of dog we were looking for!  Everyone stops us no matter where we are wanting to pet her!  She was worth the wait for sure!
