What Our Happy Clients Say

Virginia Beach Goldendoodles

Summer of 2007, our oldest son, then 26, wanted a puppy. Problem was his roommate was allergic to dogs. We started researching hypoallergenic dogs and through a series of fortunate contacts were referred to Annesley Hackathorn of VaBeach Goldendoodles. It must have been meant to be as the very week I called her, she had one pup left from a recent litter that a buyer had decided against getting a dog. 

We drove across the river that very weekend to pick up the cutest ball of black fluff I’ve ever seen. 

My son named him Richmond (in honor of the capital of VA).

We were so impressed with Richmond . . . ease of training, intelligence, family friendly, the list could go on. 

Thirteen years later we decided we wanted our own doodle. Now living in WI, we didn’t even bother to research local breeders. Richmond was still alive and well so we knew the quality of pups Annesley had to offer. So we drove over 2000 RT miles to pick up our Biscuit who has the very same qualities as Richmond. 

Sadly, recently my son lost Richmond 11 days short of his 16 1/2 year old birthday. But he was still participating in family life up until one week before it was time to say goodbye. 

Needless to say I wouldn’t buy a goldendoodle from any other breeder than VA Beach Goldendoodles!

Havy is our first dog and we knew absolutely nothing about having a puppy. When we met Annesley she showed us around and put no pressure on us. She was so patient with us and answered our questions. She was helpful and kept us informed throughout the entire process. so that when we picked up Havy we had everything in place and felt ready. She never sugar-coated it - we knew that he was going to nip at us and keep us busy, but she gave us great advice about feeding, sleeping, and even what toy he would love! Everything about the process was straightforward, calm and kind, and I felt like that vibe trickled down into the puppies and families who adopt them. Our puppy is healthy, active, and cute as can be. I recommend Virginia Beach Goldendoodles and Annesley to anyone who is considering a puppy.

Virginia Beach Golden Doodles…How do WE love you?  Let us list the names & our reasons!!  Maizy, 8 years old; SadieLindz, 7 years old, AnaLee, 6 years old and last, but definitely not least, FinnLee, 4 ½ years old.  We met Annesley after finding Virginia Beach Golden Doodles on the internet.  Mark had several phone calls and conversations with her and “boom” we were ready for a “Doodle”.   Maizy is our Golden Girl.  Sadie and AnaLee are both black and FinnLee is cream colored.  Our home is full of love, wrestling and snuggling doodles.   AND we love it.  If you are looking for the best doodle ever…..look no more.  Virginia Beach Golden Doodles offers beautiful, healthy puppies, loved and well taken care of until they come to your forever home.  Annesley is a wealth of knowledge on raising and caring for them.  We would have more if our home and yard allowed!  The doodles are so smart, loving and blend together so well.  We were the first family to have 4 doodles and I believe we started a new tradition of owning more than one wonderful “dood” from Annesley!

Virginia Beach Goldendoodles

We were so fortunate and blessed to have met Annseley. Our first Golden Doodle Summer we got from VBG is a beautiful and truly soulful pup. Enough so that we felt her calling was to help others by spreading her love as a therapy dog. She brings joy to the hospitals, fire and rescue in VB. And to us every single day! Our second beautiful Doodle Skye is also on that same track. She is so easy to train, smart, loves her people, playful, funny and carries such a nice disposition. They are both great with other dogs, love people, travel everywhere and very well with us! So much more than we could ever want or ask for!

They were so loved and cared before we even met them and it shows in every way. Thank you for making our family complete! We will always be grateful for you and forever a Virginia Beach Golden Doodle family 💕🐾
