My family had the pleasure of purchasing an Australian Labradoodle puppy from Shauna Maisto in May of 2016. We have worked with two other breeders in the past, and this was by far, our best experience. Our puppy is gorgeous, healthy and has a wonderful temperment! She is everything that we hoped for, and more. Shauna puts so much effort into her breeding program to ensure the highest quality in her puppies. These home-raised puppies, are given lots of care, love and attention by Shauna and her family. When picking up our freshly bathed puppy, we were provided with a folder with all of her health records, tips on housetraining and required contracts, as well as a bag of toys with a puppy portrait and food samples. Our puppy was well on the way to crate and house training and learning basic commands. We have had dogs before, so these things were definitely appreciated, but if I had been a first-time dog owner, these items that were provided by Shauna, would have been life-savers. Tri-State Labradoodles is a well-run, organized breeder that is committed to doing their business in a highly professional, but extremely caring way.
We were so impressed with Shauna's professionalism, but we are most grateful for the personal attention that was shown to our family. When I initially contacted Shauna, she had no puppies available, but she had responded to me in such a timely and kind manner, that I contacted her again a couple of months later. She put us on a waiting list, and we were both delighted when she was able to offer us a puppy shortly after. Over the next two months, we were provided with fun texts, photos and information about the puppies. We were able to visit at her home and meet her wonderful family. Shauna took an interest in my children and their reactions to the puppies and certainly shared our excitement on a weekly basis about the puppies' development. My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We've always been a "one dog" family, but if we ever decide to get another puppy, we'd definitely go back to Tri-State Labradoodles!
Shauna and family,
I want to thank you so much for all you have done to care for and nurture Cooper! It meant so much to us to stay so connected with you through messages, pictures, and updates until he was ready to come home. It was very apparent to us (and our vet) that you have the highest standards of breeding and loving these beautiful puppies. Cooper has already surpassed our expectations in just a few short weeks! He is so smart, friendly, and loving! Exposure to your children from early on has made him very attached and playful with my own children, so thank you for that foundation of being an awesome, kid-friendly, family dog. We look forward to keeping in touch and sharing pictures of Cooper as he continues to make awesome memories with our family! Thank you for EVERYTHING!!
Sincerely, with much Labradoodle love and appreciation!
