Got our doggo here almost two years ago. Fantastic breed, golden doodle. The people here are terrific. Answer any questions. Very nice people. Take wonderful care of their pups. I can’t say enough nice things about this place. Can’t wait to get our guy a little sister soon.
I can’t recommend Renee enough. Our wonderful goldendoodle has been with us for seven years now, and she’s the best dog I’ve ever had. We’re in the process of bringing home our second dog from Renee (a labradoodle this time) and I’d forgotten just how wonderful it is to work with someone who truly cares about her puppies. As long as Renee is breeding we’ll continue to get our pups from her - you just can’t beat a doodle from a loving breeder.
We got Finnegan, our sweet double doodle, from Renee at Yesteryear Acres. Finn is now 6 years old and one of the best dogs ever! He came to us already well socialized and was so easy to train. He is a faithful friend and a true family dog. Two of our friends also have wonderful doodles from Yesteryear. I highly recommend Yesteryear Acres.
Wonderful!! I got my best friend from Yesteryear Acres. We are all super impressed with the way Renee and her lovely family lovingly raised my boy until he came to me. My boy was one of their studs and they were done breeding him so I got lucky! We got him when he was six and he's now going on 12 years old! We used to raise service dogs and even with all of those dogs and our family friends, our Yesteryear fuzz muffin is the sweetest most well trained and most loyal companion of all of them. Working with Renee and her amazing family has been a dream especially because I got my boy there. But not only that, they're one of the nicest, closest, and most hard working families I've ever met. I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Update: Our beautiful boy passed away on March 3rd 2018. Our hearts are so broken. He was just the most amazing incredible fur family member we've ever loved. I still truly believe SO much of it had to do with how he was loved and raised with Renee and her family. I'm just so blessed to have had Elmo by my side for 7 wonderful, fun, memorable years and everyone in the family felt the same way. There's just nothing like the love of a dog. Another Update! Thanks to Renee we now have our second yesteryear acres pup! She is beautiful, soft, cuddly, and wonderful! We couldn't be happier! AND She's related to our beloved Elmo! What more could we have hoped for? Thank you Yesteryear Acces!!! When I wrote to tell Renee, she got back with me right away expressing her heartfelt sympathy but also letting us know she was glad Elmo was so loved by our family. Everyone adored Elmo. No matter where we went, he was always so happy to let people love on him and I know from their reactions, they were the lucky ones. Renee also sent me a beautiful poem that had me balling my eyes out. Thank you Renee and your beautiful family for our 1 in a million boy. If you want warm, furry (no shedding!), wonderful love bug, you can't beat a Labradoodle. And if you want the best, one who comes from a loving family who hand raises their incredible pups, Yesteryear Acres is the only place else to go!
Let me count the ways this is the best breeder in the Midwest... 1) loving fun family who love their life and their dogs 2) they honestly want to match you with the best dog for your lifestyle 3) they are excellent communicators- they share pictures of the puppies as they develop and grow. You really feel a part of the process 4) when I picked up my puppy, the family each snuggled it and gave her loving advice for a good puppy life❤️ 5) our puppy is phenomenal— healthy and active, sweet temperament and playful, super smart and very trainable. She is calm in the middle of loud family gatherings. She is playful with other dogs. She likes car rides. She doesn’t bark at vacuums! I could not ask for a better puppy. Do not hesitate for a second, if you are considering this breeder. You will be happy with the puppy - it is worth the wait.
