"Calla" in New Jersey made the Doodle Kisses 2010 Calendar as "Miss July"
Our family wanted to write you this testimonial to let you know how this precious dog "Angel" has touched our family life in such a positive way.
We have had a few dogs since 2002. 2 have been puppies, 2 were older dogs. 1 stuck, our toy poodle Jackson who is 3 now. He also came from a reputable breeder.
When I was on my quest to have a good experience with a dog as well as a companion for Jackson, I decided that a Labradoodle would be perfect. I thought, the fun loving temperament of a Lab and the smarts and non shedding coat of a poodle. I had no idea about Australian Labradoodles. I researched for over 2 weeks and spoke to breeders from Bakersfield to San Diego. Finally, we found you. Courteous, professional, cooperative, and a good listener. I was on a mission for an older dog. NOT a puppy. Been there, done that, not fun. There was NO WAY, as my husband and kids put it. Thank God you insisted on coming over with a 14 week puppy to show us what kind of temperament it had. I thought, ok, no commitment, I am open minded, plus a chocolate brown wavy curl was exactly what we wanted! I didn't have any idea that the experience would change my family's thoughts about a puppy. She was so calm and adorable! Even Jackson laid down right next to her! It was truly magical. Sounds hokey, but true. Still not convinced I asked for references, I wanted to talk to your clients that received puppies from you recently. Two of your clients called me and stated that they have had a great experience and spoke to me for quite a while. Okay, I was convinced.
Then Angel arrived. WOW. No joke, potty trained in less than 2 days. Mellow, sleeps all night, fits in, and most important...NO STRESS. Does not jump on people, bark, and bonds with each member of the family, not just the one who feeds her.
Thank you for insisting I meet your puppies. I could have 3 dogs...I am serious. I look forward to a wonderful fulfilling life with this dog. Coming from me, a very hyper control freak that insists on a clean house and a mellow dog...this is a Godsend!! Thank you Babbie. You will never know the therapeutic value of this adorable dog we have named Marley.

"WINSLOW" is with his new family in Huntington Beach, CA
"We are so happy to have Winslow in our family. He is just beautiful! His topaz eyes are a real attention getter. Anyone who sees him, makes a comment about how beautiful and human like his eyes are...not a day goes by where someone doesn't come up to him and are completely attracted to him...I am amazed at how easy he is to groom and take care. He is very good when getting washed and groomed....so easy to brush too!"
Jane, regarding "Winslow " in Huntington Beach, CA
"Well, what can I say? I just love Gracie! She is such a joy to have in my life. She has completely consumed my days. I just love it! We do everything together. My sons are even in love with her when they visit.
Andrea, regarding "Gracie" in Pasadena, CA
"SCOOTER" is with his new family in Upland, CA
"Scooter's the best thing I could have ever spent money on....better than any therapy that can be offered! He has been just the perfect addition to our family. We love him!"
Dave, regarding "Scooter" in Upland, CA
"Snickers is so cute and what a great dog he has turned out to be. We are even considering getting another one."
Albany (first time dog owner), regarding "Snickers" in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
"Duffy sat the whole game on Super Bowl Sunday on my husbands lap. He has been a perfect addition to our family. Both of my children are in love with him and I just don't know what I would do without him."
Sally, regarding "Duffy" in Seal Beach, CA
We could not be more happy with "Eddy". Purchasing a trained labradoodle puppy has saved us so much angst and frustration you just can't put a value on it. He's an exceptional dog. He's fun to play with, walk, and just to be around. He's in his "place" in my home office as I write this e-mail. We interviewed several breeders and did a lot of online research before completing our purchase. Royal Diamond Labradoodles surpassed our expectations. Thank you Babby for being such a tremendous resource and breeder.
We're thinking that Eddy might need a brother soon. So, expect to see us again!
Jim & Miles regarding "Eddy" in Southern California
"Thank you for this great partner in life, Coco is the very best dog that we have ever bought. She is very smart learns very fast loves her ball and to fetch. She is about 35lbs now. She loves our young grandchildren and is very gentle with them. We can not wait to get home from work to be with her. Coco does something new everyday. We love it!!!!
Babbie thank you for Coco and the great work you do.

Steve and I just wanted to let you know how much we love Jersey. We've had a perfect day. He cried for all of 6 minutes last night at bedtime and then slept through the night. We were so excited this morning, when we heard his tail wagging inside the crate at 5am, we started the day! I think we'll be on a more regular schedule tomorrow.
He's found his potty spot; today, when he looked as if he needed to go, we took him out, but our concern is that Monday, when we're off to work, we won't be able to do this. Are we correct in trying to regulate his potty schedule so that Monday isn't disaster for him?
He listens and minds so well - we are really impressed with how you've worked with him. He does seem to follow one of us if we leave the room - he has bonded quickly with both of us.
We appreciate all your expertise and guidance. He really is a love bug and we are thrilled! Facebook pictures, high praise for you, and a plug for Royal is coming soon!
Thanks again - we absolutely love him!

I have wonderful updates for you. After your last reply, I persisted with Monty's potty training, and stay close to your advise and he is finally getting it.
Wonderful news #1 : Monty is going potty at the right spot consistently w/o pulling on his leash or dragging me around. He circled a few times and was able to go almost right away. And he has been able to do that since the last time I talked to you. Hoooray!
Wonderful news #2: This is actually for me. He is staying true to his schedule. I don't have to guess when he needs to go anymore. Yeeeahhh!
Wonderful news #3: He is now crated trained. He doesn't whine anymore. He knows when he needs to be in there and would quietly stay in there until he is being let out. Also, he is sleeping through the night for the past 4 nights with no accident. He sleeps at 8 pm and goes potty consistently at 5:30 am. Hallelujah!
Wonderful news #4: Monty is trained to sit and wait for his food. When I hold out the food bowl, he would automatically sit until I give him his food. He also doesn't mind that I put my hand in his food and take it away. He would just wait until I put his food back. No growling or getting upset. He is a good boy.
Wonderful news #5: Monty has learned to sit and come without treats now. He does it on command. WOW! He has also learned "stay". When I took the trash out, he would not cross the garage threahold w/o my permission. He would stay by the door and wait for me until I return.
Wonderful news #6 : Monty has gone to work with Gary for the past 2 days. The first day was challenging cuz he whinned in his play pen till 3 pm and Gary was pretty stressed out. But, yesterday and today he is doing real well and knows that that's his daily routine. Gary said he improved yesterday whinning from 8- 10 am only. After that he was able to play with his bully stick and cow hooves on his own until he was ready to potty. I believe he is going to do even better today. And, the loud noises in the garage does not seem to affect him either.
We are sooo proud of Monty. He is a fantastic dog, well mannered and very smart. I realized he responds very well to consistent training. These are the traits I'm looking for and I'm very pleased with his progress so far. I'm sure there are many more good things to come. In 2 weeks we are going to start our puppy group class. I cannot wait for Monty to learn more things bec I know he has a potential and capacity to be better than what he is already."

Dear Babbie, Royal Diamonds Australian Labradoodles,
We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a special happening in our families life.
We have been planning now for a few years to add an Australian Labradoodle to our family, and the time has arrived. We could not be happier! Your time, sincerity, intuition has been everything that our family needed.
You matched our puppy up with our family so well, and we now have the puppy of our dreams. He is simply adorable, loving, wonderful coat, and his mannerisms are outstanding! A-1 quality! We have just what we have been planning for.
The ALD dogs that you are breeding are top quality, simply outstanding. We plan to begin our special therapy training with him.
We are so pleased that we would like to bring on a dog playmate for him.
So, our hearts go out to you, and have a connection. This addition to our family, is a blessing, and was in the works for us long before we ever were aware of it.
We are sincerely grateful, and loving our new family member. Thank you.
