Justin and Jill from Great Oaks Kennel helped make the whole experience great. They were professional and personal in the way they communicated through email or talking on the phone. It was nice that my wife could talk directly with them over the phone and they helped answer questions we had. We’ve had other family members use Great Oaks Kennel and love their dogs. We’re excited to pick up our puppy soon. Thanks for helping making this a fun experience for our family!
We had an amazing experience picking out our puppy Bentley! The family is absolutely amazing to work with and they take wonderful care of the puppies. They also have an amazing home where they raise the puppies to give them plenty of room to run around and play. We have to wait 3 more weeks to pick up our baby and we can't wait to get back here to take him home! This family is truly amazing with these puppies and raise them as a part of the family! I would refer all my closest friends and family to Great Oaks Kennel for any one looking for a puppy!
We have been so happy with our experience with Great Oaks Kennel. Justin and Jill were very friendly and informative in all of our communications. They provided plenty of updates and pictures of the litter as they grew. It’s evident that they really care about raising happy healthy dogs! We’re also very pleased to be able to visit their kennel to pick up our puppy and see where she was born and spent her first 8 weeks! We would absolutely recommend Great Oaks Kennel to anyone looking to add a great puppy to their family. Their Bernedoodle pups are absolutely beautiful.
It would be tough for me to say a single negative thing regarding our experience with Justin and Jill at Great Oaks Kennel. As soon as I put my deposit down for our male golden retriever puppy, I spoke with both Jill and Justin within a matter of hours. They treated me with nothing but respect, despite this being our first dog. The day we visited the puppies were all perfect and it was a difficult decision, but in the best way, because they were all so cute! We now have our beautiful puppy and we feel so blessed. Great Oaks Kennel is very professional and the right choice if you are looking for your next four-legged companion.
Although I had not been planning long term for a puppy, the way that my daughter Hadyn had, the purchase of a puppy came as a sweet surprise. About one month ago, I accompanied Hadyn to select her puppy and learned that one of the litter mates would be available. I had always wanted to have a dog that could potentially be a therapy dog and it seemed a golden retriever would be the perfect breed. After expressing my sudden interest, I received great follow up and communication from Great Oaks. I have received weekly photos and videos of my pup and prompt communication to answer any questions I may have regarding “Dunkin”. I was so pleased to see their girls loving on, playing with, and even calling my pup the name I have chosen for him. I am thankful for the opportunity to have him join my family and possibly be a blessing to others, through therapy visits, in the future.
Fantastic Puppy Experience!
The People, Process and Pet are wonderful. Daisy is a great dog. Yes, she’s a puppy which comes with all the puppy stuff involved. But Daisy has turned out to have just the right amount of puppy and right amount of personality we were looking for. Full of beans & fun, smarter than we expected, and well-mannered when she should be. After just a couple of days she fits well with the rest of the gang and socialized great with the other dogs in the neighborhood. A true pleasure to have as a family member.
You can’t go wrong when working with Great Oaks Kennel, a really great partner and wonderful people.
Our experience with Great Oaks Kennel has been nothing but the BEST! From our very first phone conversation, we were confident that Bear would be receiving the most love and care with the Murray's before we got to bring him home. They were so patient and answered all of our questions and were so communicative with us during the first 8 weeks of Bear's life. We loved receiving pictures and videos of all the pups and we felt like we were given ample time to play with all the puppies when we went to pick ours out. I'm so thankful that we are getting our first dog from the Great Oaks, they have really helped us feel prepared to care for and love Bear! We can't wait to bring him home!
“This was our first time getting a puppy, and from a reputable breeder, and it has been the most seamless, enjoyable process we could’ve asked for. I inquired online about a golden retriever puppy at Great Oaks Kennel and Justin called me that night! They had just found out one of their retrievers was pregnant and put us down on the list! We were so excited. Jill then called us after all puppies were born and we weren’t able to get a female from the litter we wanted (no one can control how many males/females are in a litter, so we did not care one bit) so they gave us the option to pick from another litter and we think it was meant to be. We were informed about puppy picks and we were glued to our phones all week looking at all the videos and pictures and we honestly didn’t care which one we got because they all are so adorable and have such good personalities from what we saw in the videos. Then, the week of puppy pick ups, on Tuesday, Justin called me letting me know our puppy had a knot on his neck and they took him to their vet to get it checked out and Justin thoroughly explained the situation and the vet said it was nothing harmful and the location was where the microchip was inserted but they started him on antibiotics anyways and would send us home with them to finish them out. We were so relieved and more reassured that we picked the right breeder. They have kept in contact with us, answered any questions (via text, email, or phone call) and have taken such great care of these puppies, and treated them like their own family. The only hard part is waiting 8 weeks to take our little furry bundle of joy home with us! Also, please note, we had plenty of other breeders to choose from closer to home (we are from Iowa) but Great Oaks Kennel were by far the most responsive and compassionate of all of them which makes the 8 hour drive completely worth it and we can already see us getting another puppy from them in the future.”
Great Oaks Kennel made getting my new Bernedoodle puppy so stress free and fun even through Covid-19. Their communication and updated up to and after the day I got to pick him was second to none. You can tell the Murray family really cares about the puppies and take incredible care of them so you get to being home a sweet healthy puppy. I highly recommend getting your next puppy from Great Oaks.
I had the most amazing experience working with Jill and Justin at Great Oaks Kennel! After my first phone call with Justin, I felt confident I was working with honest people whose top priority is the health and safety of their pups. They even made sure to send a detailed letter full of tips and what to expect in the first few weeks with my new puppy. My favorite part of the experience was receiving all the cute pictures and videos during what felt like the longest 8 weeks of my life while I was waiting to bring my sweet girl home. Little Georgia Belle has already brought so much love and joy into my life, and I cannot recommend Great Oaks Kennel enough!
We cannot even begin to express how thankful we are for the Murrays at Great Oaks Kennel. This is our first puppy so of course we had tons of questions! Justin & Jill were quick to answer any question & they were so helpful with everything. They are really wonderful people. Their farm is an absolute dream for all those puppies & when I first saw our little guy I immediately knew they love & care for all their puppies like their own. We got pretty lucky with our little (for now) puppy. We are forever grateful for Justin & Jill. Clifford has truly completed our little family!
Getting our puppy from Great Oaks Kennel has been one of the best decisions we’ve made. I looked for many months to find a place that I thought would be loving, kind, and knowledgeable on Golden Retrievers. I wanted our puppy to come from a place that felt like home and would raise him similar to how we will raise him. Great Oaks Kennel was that place. Justin and Jill both were so helpful and did a great job at answering my questions. This is our first dog that we’re owning, we’ve had family dogs, but this is our first dog so we’ve had a lot of questions and they’ve both been so helpful and patient with us. I loved the weekly updates from Jill, and once we picked our puppy the photos of our little guy made me so excited and happy! I feel so happy with our choice to get our little guy from Great Oaks Kennel! I can’t recommend them enough!
The decision to add a dog to your family, and then finding the right dog, can be a very stressful experience. We chose to go with a beautiful Bernedoodle. This breed is not easy to find and even harder to obtain a puppy without being on a long waiting list. I reached out to a few breeders, and found the Murrays to be the most informative and helpful during this exciting process. I felt extremely comfortable after talking with Justin and placed a deposit immediately. Jill has been instrumental in coordinating visits for puppy pick day and pick up day. She has been excellent with updates and information throughout the entire process, including videos and pictures of the puppies. We are so excited to be adding "Bob" to our family and couldn't ask for a better breeder. I highly recommend Great Oaks Kennel without any reservations. Extremely professional/family experience. Thank you!!
Justin and Jill have been extremely helpful and patient with us during the entire process. We had a lot of specific questions because their puppy was going to be our very first pet ever. They answered every question we had and included additional advice to guide us through this transition. I especially admired my first conversation with Justin. His transparency reassured me that they were honest and genuine breeders that cared for their dogs and their future homes. We could not have asked for better service and cooperation. Thank you both and Great Oaks Kennel!
The decision to become a pet owner is a big one. And if you're like us, we wanted to get a sweet family pet in the breed and gender we were hoping for. From an amazing breeder, who loved animals as much as we do who would guide us through this new family experience. Great Oaks Kennel is exactly that! You can not find people as professional, kind and helpful as The Murray's. From the moment we reached out Jill was wonderful to work with and sent weekly updates on the health and growth of our furry little love! She even asked us what we planned on naming our puppy so they could start calling her by name before puppy pick up day! The whole process is easy, exciting and absolutely one decision you won't regret!
“After researching breeders and asking a lot of questions along the way, when we found Great Oaks Kennel we knew our search was over. Justin was more than helpful to answer all our questions; his knowledge and guidance for bringing a puppy home was just what we needed! It was comforting to hear about Justin and Jill’s family and how well they care for their dogs. We have appreciated all the take home tips too, as well as, sending pictures and videos while we waited to meet our new girl. We are already planning to come back and look forward to working with Justin and Jill again!” (This great family returned for their second Berne from Great Oaks!!!)
From our very first contact with Justin & Jill, we received such exceptional service. They were so quick to respond to any questions we had & made the whole process so easy. We absolutely loved getting weekly photos of our growing pup, & when we went to pick out girl, we left feeling confident that she was being loved on & well taken care of until we could take her home. I cannot recommend Great Oaks highly enough. They went above & beyond to make our experience a great one. If we ever decide to get another puppy, we will definitely use Great Oaks again! (This beautiful family traveled back to Oklahoma for their second Retriever from us!!!)
We highly recommend Great Oaks Kennel to anyone looking to add a new canine family member! We have been confident through the entire process that the puppy we are receiving is the one for us. Great Oaks had been very responsive through every step and kept us regularly updated on the status of our little one. We look forward to being able to love on our healthy Great Oaks Kennel puppy!
I really cannot say enough wonderful things about Great Oaks Kennel. When we started our search for a Golden Retriever we came across Great Oaks online; I am so glad we did! Justin and Jill were kind and attentive throughout the process. We even had a setback within our family and had to delay purchasing our puppy and they were so gracious and understanding! As soon as the litter was born, we were notified. Jill sent us so many pictures leading up to bringing sweet Lucy home. It was so fun watching her grow! If your're thinking of adding a Golden to your family I highly recommend Justin, Jill, and Great Oaks Kennel!
