We love to hear from the folks who have added one of our Golden Doodles or Poodles to their family:
“It was the weekend of Thanksgiving two years ago when we lost our Golden Doodle Bella. We were all devastated, especially our two children, who wanted another Golden Doodle right away.
Living in Connecticut, we had no luck finding a breeder, so my husband began his search on-line. He stumbled upon Betty and Mark’s puppies, and the rest is history.
Betty was truly amazing, answering several phone calls from a ” new and anxious” family. Being from Connecticut, our puppy needed to be shipped, which was a new experience for us. It couldn’t have been a greater experience.
Our puppy Sophie arrived safe, with an extremely easy process. Sophie is a well behaved, lovable, healthy, and truly a wonderful addition to our family. I would recommend Betty and Mark’s family breeding to anyone.
Betty knows I would talk to anyone about our experience and our BEST family friend!” Jill
We bought a puppy from the Raber’s and are very happy with him. He has done very well for us and we feel very fortunate to have come across the Raber’s poodles. Betty was super nice and talk to me several times and helped find the right fit for us. Our puppy is growing well and is very smart. We feel very lucky to have found him as he has been a great addition to our family! Thank you Raber’s for all the work and care you put in that helped to make “Moose” the perfect fit for us!
Last month I lost my 10 year old cocker spaniel. I was devastated. My youngest daughter insisted that I needed to have a new companion dog in my house. I reluctantly agreed. She found our golden doodle at the Raber’s. We’ve only had him a few days but he already has found a place with our family. He is intelligent and very affectionate. He learns very quickly. It’s difficult to find family breeders but “Golden Doodles and Poodles” seem to know what they are doing. I appreciate being able to call Betty to answer questions we may have. She has been a great help. I highly recommend Golden Doodles and Poodles to anyone looking for quality golden doodle puppies.
Sasha, now known as Maya is everything we hoped for. We lost our Sophie unexpectedly in Feb 2018 at age 7, way too soon. Vowing to never get another dog, here we are a year later wanting another doodle. This breed is our family’s favorite and unintentionally I picked a puppy that looks so much like our Sophie. Maya does have a different personality but still the awesome, loving, loyal characteristics of a golden doodle. Our family would probably agree that Maya has some even better qualities than Sophie. We were very impressed with how easy it has been to house train Maya. The Raber family must really spend time with their puppies. Maya listens and responds to my commands quite well. I was also impressed with how well kept the family farm was. They have a beautiful home and very clean surroundings.

From the day he, came to live with us Shaggy has been a wonderful member of our family.
I couldn’t believe at 9 weeks he arrived house broken. I was very conscientious about letting him out. Whenever he looked in the direction of the door he was taken outside. He didn’t make a mistake. And he still hasn’t. At six months he is still growing.
He is absolutely the fastest learner I’ver ever seen. We show him how to do something once or twice and he gets in.
He was everything we where told he would be and more. Thank you for raising such wonderful puppies:

This review and testimony is long overdue. I adopted Mabel, formerly Macy, a 4 month old black Goldendoodle from Betty in April 2018, and I have been so pleased. I already had a 3 1/2 year old Goldendoodle that hasn’t gotten properly socialized with other dogs. I was hoping Mabel would teach her some things and it’s proven to be a very good decision.
First of all, Betty provided excellent service to me, sharing videos and talking about each puppies temperament. I was able to observe the puppies interacting with her children in a video- I live in Seattle!- and was able to make a good decision about the best puppy for my family.
As a four-month-old, Mabel arrived in Seattle as cargo on a Delta flight. Betty uses a shipping service called My New Puppy Delivery and the guy who owns it was also easy to work with. I was able to communicate directly with him via phone and it was very reassuring.
A trainer met us at my home to set the tone for an appropriate introduction with my other Doodle, and within a day it was as if Mabel lived here forever. She and my other Doodle quickly bonded and Mabel treats her like a big sister / aunt. They play together for hours. In the one year I have had her, Mabel has had one accident in the house. Like all puppies, she loves chewing things such as earphones, a copy of the New Testament, and an antique player piano roll! Mabel is very smart and learned Shake, Sit, Down in no time flat. Bonus- she rides beautifully in the car, sleeping the whole time. She’s also great with my Airbnb guests.
In summary, I highly recommend Betty and her Golden Doodles and Poodles. It was a very positive experience. Betty was great at communicating, she was patient with all of my questions, she gave me exceptional service, and I’m thrilled to have Mabel as a part of my life. Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions.
