Ridgewood Testimonials

“I have used several trainers on several different dogs, and never had results as quickly as I have with your advice. Not only have I been to several dog obedience classes, I have bought so many videos, and training aids. Nothing I have done was even close the results that I have had from following your advice in emails. She has not ignored any of my commands off leash since I received the advice from you. Both times that I needed help from you, you had the right answer, with astonishing results. It is remarkable how a couple paragraphs from you can make such a difference. Unlike most breeders, it is a wonderful thing to see that a breeder cares about the dogs long after money exchanges hand. The minute I walked into your store and talked to your fantastic employee that had enormous knowledge about dogs, and the warranty that no other breeder would consider to offer. I knew that you guys were runny a great business. The fact you still care long after, shows that it is better than great, it is amazing! I would recommend you to anyone that is looking for a puppy.”  -Laura B.

“We have been meaning to contact you guys ever since we bought our first puppy from you, but now we have 2 from you! We met and fell in love with our first addition, Baxter (Caviston) in 2011, and then came back for more puppy love in 2012 and met our 2nd addition, Tank (Yorkichi)! We can’t tell you how much we love our boys and how much joy they have brought to our lives. Baxter just turned 2 years old last month and Tank just turned 1 year old this past November. We couldn’t imagine life without them now. We love that their mixed breeds are so unique and anyone who meets them, instantly loves them! Their personalities are awesome! They are the best of brothers. one day to add another to the mix!” – Sharon & Mike R.

“Hi! We just wanted to let you all know how much our little girl bichon-poo (named “Mia”) has enriched our lives!!!!! Mia has brought us so much joy in the time we have had her since the middle of September and each day is very special to us!” -Arnold Family

“I am madly in love with my pugapoo. I bought him 4 years ago from you guys and he has been the best dog I ever had.  My friends compliment him all the time by saying hes the perfect dog and he really really is.” -Shelley

“Olivia is turning 1 year old in a couple of weeks. We thought we would send you pictures of her. We got her last Memorial Day weekend and she is the best dog in the world. We’re hoping to get her a friend in the future (from you of course). Thank you for bringing her into our lives.” -Avayou Family

“Just wanted you to know that the dachshund my husband and daughters got is doing great! Gabby is loving her new life!” -Renee F.

“We have had many dogs over our lifetime. Without a doubt our Jenny is the best of the best! From day one, she acclimated to us and our home and all others that she comes in contact with. Never have we had a dog that has such a wonderful personality. She has brought much joy into our home. She has been cage trained and even from day one, she has never whined nor complained. She is one amazing little and mighty puppy! We just wanted to let you know what a great decision we made when we purchased her from you folks!” -Bill & Sharon

“In 1993 we purchased one of your babies, a male brindle Cairn Terrier. We named him Mack, and for almost 16 years he was a member of our family. A wonderful dog, a joy to me and my husband, he went everywhere with us and loved it. We purchased him in 1993 in Ocean City, MD. He was very healthy and stayed very active, loving to chase a ball and very affectionate. He passed away on December 22, 2008. It was unexpected and peaceful, and he had remained healthy all his life.  I thought you would like to know what had become of one of your babies. He lived a very long and happy lifewith us and he is greatly missed. When I purchase another dog, I will be contacting you to do so. Thank you so much.” -Norma and Kevin

“Lola will be 14 weeks tomorrow and she is definitely the love of my life! I visited you guys for a long time and finally found the perfect match for me!” -Carol

We just adore her.” -Roxie’s mommy (Roxie is her second puppy from Ridgewood)

“I take Sugar to the Nursing Home to visit my Mother-in-law in Dover, PA and to visit my Mother at the Brethren Home. Sugar is a hit at both places. Thanks for a wonderful puppy!” -Lou & Diane

My little Lhasa joined the family in September at the age of 8 weeks and weight of 1 3/4 pounds.She is now 20 weeks and about 6 1/2 pounds. I cannot imagine my life without her! She is so well adjusted. Loves playing with the grandkids and loves attending puppy classes where she can attack all the big dogs! Thank you…you guys are great. I’m hoping to be back in thespring to add a little playmate to the household!” -Donna (has since purchased three more puppies below!)

“You have given me so much to be thankful for with these four little girls! Snickers (Lhasa) is now 2 1/2 years old, MaggiMoo (Shichon) is now 1 1/2, Tootsie (Shichon) just turned 1 in September, and Munchkin (Cairn Terrier) is now 9 months. The pleasure they have given me and the happiness they have brought into my home can not be imagined. Each little one has their own unique personality and we never know what to expect! Snickers tries to be the “pack leader”, but Munchkin often shows her who’s boss! Maggi is the protector of all. As soon as one of the others barks or yelps, she is right at their side to make sure everything is OK. Tootsie is the quiet one….loves to hang out on the couch and watch TV…usually lying on her back in hopes of someone rubbing her belly! The days are just one laugh after another. Thanks again, I’d come and visit but you know what happens if I do that!” -Donna
(proud owner of 5 Ridgewood puppies and aunt to 1 Ridgewood puppy!)

“I have been wanting to extend my gratitude to everyone who works at this store for bringing me my little fluffball of joy! About a year and a half ago, (November 16, 2006 to be exact) I walked into your store just to look, in search of possibly buying a female Yorkie. At the time, there were none available, however, there was this one little white ball of fluff, a female Maltese. It was love at first sight through the glass window. I just had to have her no matter what. My little Tootsie is now a year and a half old, and I don’t know what I would do without her. I just wanted to send my sincere thanks for bringing this little girl into my life. There’s no love like puppy love, and I couldn’t love anything else more.” -Kristy

“Hi, my name is Maura, and I bought a Malitpoo from you last August. We love him soooo much, he was a great addition to our family. I recommend you guys to all my friends and co-workers!” -Maura

“We named our new puppy Mia and so far so good. She has such a great disposition, and she is such a happy little puppy. My wife fell in love with her the moment she saw her. Thank you so much!” -Rick

“I bought a Schnoodle from you and her name is Emma. Emma is such a sweet puppy and has brought so much joy to me and my husband. I’ve been meaning to send you some pictures of Emma. She is 5 months old now and weighs 10lb 3oz. Thanks for all your help and for
such a beautiful puppy!” -Mike & Stacey

“[Our cockapoo] has turned out to be such a jem! She actually goes in the crate all by herself. She was a little shy at first, but then settled in after a few hours. She slept in the crate all 3 nights so far and she has been going to the potty outside. We can’t wait for our grandchildren to see her. I’ll send pictures as soon as she grows a little, and so far we are VERY pleased with our Sweetie. Thanks for breeding such a great puppy!” -Anne & Bob

“Eight months ago we bought Pascal from your store. He is a Bichonpoo and he is a darling. He loves other dogs and people and is the happiest dog I know. He constantly wags his tail, is a quick learner, and loves to take walks. We are so happy to have him in our
lives.” -Colleen

“We are so thankful for these two!!! Thank you for raising such sweet tempered dogs.  They have truly become a special part of our family.” -Michelle L.

“I bought a Chihuahua from your over 5 years ago and love him and your place so much that I have recommended you to everyone I know that wants a dog. A friend of mine from work bought 2 puppies from you Zoey and Zeus and loves your place too.” -Carol Ann S.

“Hi Holly, I just wanted to take a moment and update you one our puppy. We bought Mason (or as you knew him, Asher) from you guys in March. When we brought him home he was a 2.7 pound 10 week old tiny puppy.  To this day he is now 10 pounds and almost 7 months old.  Mason is the first pet I have ever had.  He has brought sooo much joy to me & my families lives.  He was potty trained within a month & a half…he is such a happy, playful, hyper, silly little guy.  We are in the process of trying to teach him sit, stay, those types of tricks.  He already knows speak.  He learned how to play fetch almost as soon as we brought him home and he also likes to swim!  He was so easy to crate train, that’s the only place he sleeps.  When he gets tired, he will walk into his crate by himself and go right to sleep. He sleeps all night, sometimes I have to actually wake him up in the morning lol.  From the moment we brought Mason home, he was such a happy puppy.  I could tell from that moment that you guys really take care of the pups you sell.  I have recommended 2 people to check out Ridgewood to buy puppies. I’m hoping to eventually buy Mason a friend soon, hopefully within the next year and I will definitely be buying from you guys!” -Jen C.

“We bought the most wonderful Westie from you 2 years ago.  He is and amazing guy!” -Patti K.

“We have bought two pups from you in the past and they are such a joy!” -Janet P.

“Hi Holly!  Since Halo has been home with us she has only had 1 accident in the house. She really adjusted well to her new home and is doing great with potty training.  It also helps that we are all on the same page with her too. 🙂 Our whole family enjoys her so much that my two girls fight over who gets to play with her lol!” -Mel

“Thanks again Holly!  My parents love Juliette are were given so much help and great information when they came to pick her up!” -Kim W.

“It’s almost two years to the day that I picked Parker up from you.  He is the most loveable, adorable dog that I could ever ask for in my life! Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful joy in my life!” -Michelle Z.

“Hey, it’s been almost a year since we bought Maddie from you and we just wanted to let you know how great she has been.  We haven’t had any health issues and she is an amazing little dog.  We couldn’t be happier with her, she is a ball of fun and is very happy with us!” -Jon T.

“I thought I would send some current photos of Penny @ 8 mos. She is so adorable.  We are so pleased with how she is turning out. She is a little sweetheart! She is full of energy,  comical, and extremely smart.” -Laura B.

“I think it’s a safe bet that *I* love your puppies! LOL  Miss MoneyPenny is the 5th puppy  I’ve purchased from you!  If you will recall, I bought 3  puppies in one day. One of these days, when I can get them to sit still long enough, we’ll try and take a group picture and send it to you.  I guess I would be one of your biggest fans! I adore them all and each of them has brought a lot of joy to our families!” – Sharon

“We bought Jack, a male shichon, from you about a year and a half ago and I have to say this little man is the love of my life.  I have owned many dogs in my life but never one that is so happy all the time and is just a joy to have in our family.  Everything about him is just perfect, anyone who meets him wants to take him home. Thank you so much for this joyous experience, we would definately come to you again for another puppy.” -Julie & Tim

“Thank you Holly. I adopted Mae yesterday and so far everything is going great. She is so sweet and smart. I love her to pieces already. I’m trying to get some good photos to send you guys, but she’s a quick one. As soon as I get some good ones I’ll email them to you.” -Dawn

“Just wanted to let you know that Jake (Schnoodle) is doing just fine. He has brought much fun and excitement into our home. Just want to thank you so much for the opportunity of having to buy Jake from you. You were very informative on how to take care of him. We enjoy each day more and more. Thank you again and we just love Jake.” -Deborah & Eric

“I love my happy, healthy, little puppy! Clearly well cared for before we brought him “home”. Thank you for our new addition!” -Christi B.

  • we bought a female shichon fron kennel and she is doing great, eating and playing . highly recommend them to anyone looking for a puppy, will send pictures soon.named her kia shay

  • We bought our toy poodle Fletcher in February of 2015 he is a real joy. He was easy to train and I can tell he was well loved before coming to live with us.

  • Testimonial:

    Our Paisley, Western Highland Terrier is a great joy. We have a daughter who is entering her teens and she is on the Autism Spectrum, highly academic and has anxiety issues. She had never had a dog before and was skittish around dogs. We didn’t know how she would take to a new puppy. We explained this situation to the ladies at Ridgewood (via phone) and they helped us introduce Paisley to our daughter. Our daughter was somewhat nervous but Paisley was so unique: she could zip and race about at 8 weeks old but yet, as soon as you picked her up, she relaxed within a 1/2 a second and was cuddly. We were in love. We took our daughter out for lunch at the Amish market and she asked about getting Paisley “before anyone else takes her.” While we were there to purchase Paisley, another customer came in to announce that the dog they purchased from Ridgewood had died at a very elderly age. They needed a new puppy “and weren’t going anywhere else for another puppy.”
    We got Paisley home and I was astounded that she took right to her crate. At four months, she steps right in and does so as well with the carrier we brought her home in.
    A couple days after bringing Paisley home, I wondered if she was getting enough sleep. I emailed the ladies and got a reply back within a half hour (in the evening) to reassure me.
    That was in February. Today, she is 4 months old. Paisley continues to be a joy. She has started “Puppy Obedience Class” with us once a week. I’m happy to say, it’s not training for problem behaviors. Just learning to walk on a leash, come when called, good manners.
    Our vet saw Paisley within the same week of purchase, pronouncing her healthy. She is already done with her first year shots and in June, she will go in for her spay & microchip surgery.
    My elderly mother also lives with us and will tell you (as she tells everyone) “This little baby has brought a lot of joy to our lives.” and “It’s done wonders for my granddaughter.”
    I personally waited so long in getting this testimonial in because they are usually written when the puppy is so new in the house. I thought it only fair to your prospective customers, Paisley and us to give you a clearer picture of our joy at having Paisley.
    Her personality is really the same as it’s been since the day we bought her: she’s a wonderful little nut. She knows how to play hard, when to cuddle and settle down. We have been blessed.
    Further, I just read this to my mother and she nodded, telling me: “Very good. That’s our Paisley.”

Healthy Paws Partner

Ridgewood Puppies is a Healthy Paws Pet Insurance Partner.  We strongly recommend Pet Insurance.  As your puppy grows up and ages, things can happen along the way.  Young puppies are very curious and will often find themselves in troublesome situations, older dogs - are just that.  They age an average of 7 years to our 1.  By the time they are 7 years old they are almost 50 in people years and the chances are if you're 50, you've been to the doctors office at least once or twice in your life for something expensive. Vet bills can be very expensive.  A broken tooth extraction or simple broken bone will average 700 dollars.  Healthy Paws signup costs average around 34 dollars monthly. You will need it eventually and the younger they are when you sign them up, the less it costs.
