“Windsong is everything you want from a responsible breeder. Jillian not only raises beautiful, healthy puppies, but does it in a loving, family environment. The transition to our home at 8 weeks was so easy. Crosby (our pup) came home crate trained, slept through the night, comes and sits on command, people friendly, and doesn’t chase the cat. On top of all that Jillian is there for you as Crosby matures through life. “

“My husband and I were searching for Goldendoodle breeders and after much research, we chose Windsong Doodles. When we met the breeder, Jillian, we immediately knew she was the right one for us. We could tell that she is committed to nurturing and raising excellent Goldendoodles. Jillian wants her puppies to be a special, beloved part of the family. She raises them along with her cats, and her 3 children who love them as well. Knowing we’re senior citizens and wanted a more mellow dog, she explained the personalities of the puppies, and then said , “The right puppy will pick you”, and that’s exactly what our little guy did, when he fell asleep in my arms and my husband’s as well. We could see firsthand that her puppies were well loved, socialized, healthy and happy. We’ve had him for over a week and couldn’t be happier. And he loves and responds well to the training treats that Jillian recommended. Yep, we think he’s awesome. He’s smart, lovable, sweet, gives the best puppy kisses, and we can’t help but laugh at his puppy antics.”

“Windsong was informative and responsive during the entire process. Jillian remembered our preferences during our 6 week visit and even recommended 2 pups to us. Felix is a great dog with a wonderful temperament. He was potty trained, knew how to sit, and recognized his name at 8 weeks. He has been easy to train and we couldn’t be happier with him and Windsong. Our pup is from the Phoebe x Maestro litter.
I had been searching for goldendoodle breeders and found Windsong doodles after looking through countless different breeders. I picked Windsong because their puppy values really spoke to me (rule of 7). I liked the idea that my puppy would be exposed to different people, flooring, etc. I believe it’s important to expose puppies to as much as possible as a young age so that they are not scared when they are older. Before I put a deposit down, Jillian spoke with me over the phone to discuss more details such as what kind of puppy I was looking for and addressed any concerns I had, which was very reassuring. She is very responsive to messages so communication was easy. Since my boyfriend and I were traveling from San Francisco, she was very accommodating during the scheduling for the puppy visit at 6 weeks. We had a full 2 hours to play with the pups, but our Felix picked us long before that time was up. I have to give Jillian major props here because she remembered our preferences and had actually pulled out 2 pups first that she thought we would love. During this visit, I could tell all the puppies were being raised in a loving family environment. He was so happy playing with Jillian’s kids. 2 weeks later, Felix was brought home. He was potty trained (as much as an 8 week puppy could be; just an accident or two) and knew how to sit. He even recognized his name when called. I expected him to cry the first few nights, but to my surprise he slept through the night (and every other night) like a baby. He has been such a wonderful pup, easy to train, and so lovable. He loves children and all humans. He gets along well with other dogs as well. We have had a great experience with Jillian and are so happy with our Felix. Feel free to check out how much we love him on IG: felix_thegoldendoodle (or to contact us with any questions). Our pup is from the Phoebe x Maestro litter. “

We had such a wonderful experience with Jillian and Windsong Doodles. Jillian is quick to respond, she takes the time to answer all questions and offers incredible support even after you’ve taken your pup home. The investment she makes in each of her puppies, sires, and dams is evident. She gives them the best nutrition, puppy culture training, and most of all love. We are so thankful for how she raises puppies: it made bringing our little Penny home an easy transition. She could already sit and use the pee pad at 8 weeks. She was used to all different noises and surfaces and doesn’t mind the constant attention from the kids. When we took our puppy to her first vet visit the vet and nurse could not believe how calm and friendly she was. Thank you Windsong Doodles!

Our experience with Windsong Doodles and Jillian has been amazing right from the very start. I researched many different breeders once I decided on a doodle, and Jillian was by far the most knowledgeable, responsive, and patient out of everyone I spoke with. Our puppy is well adjusted, smart, and super affectionate - everything we could have asked for. We get stopped all the time when we have him with us, and not just because he's absolutely adorable, but because he is so well behaved and confident. We tell everyone he came to us this way from his amazing breeder :)
Seriously cannot brag enough about Windsong, Jillian, and our perfect little pup. This is the place if you want the best doodle possible.

“Our experience with Windsong Doodles was exceptional! We emailed Jillian with our interest in a puppy & ended up with the exact same puppy we desired from the litter! 6 months later we have a wonderful pet for our family, which includes our two young daughters. Our boy, Obi-Wan Kenobi, is the best and we couldn’t imagine our family without him!”

“Windsong Doodles is an excellent breeder. We had a wonderful experience from our first meeting to our pick-up day with our forever pup. We were very impressed with the cleanliness, care, love and professionalism that Windsong displayed. We knew that our puppy would be in the best of care from the moment she was born. Jillian listened to our needs and wants and assured us the right puppy would join our family. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect match! We are so thankful to have found Windsong Doodles and would highly recommend anyone looking for a doodle to contact them!”

I don’t even know where to begin with how pleasant our experience has been with Jillian and Windsong Doodles.
My fiancé and I have dreamed about a goldendoodle for years. When we found Windsong, which is only a short drive in Ventura from Valencia where we live, we were so excited.
Jillian was so quick to respond to my million questions, was always professional and extremely accommodating. When the original litter we had picked didn’t end up working out back in February, she quickly gave us all our options, reviewed other upcoming litters and helped us pick the best puppy for US.
She was constantly updating us through the entire process. From the honeymoon phase, to pregnancy confirmation, updates on mom, all the way to when the puppies were born.
We got weekly (often times more) updates with photos and videos of all the puppies.
When arranging our pick date, Jillian was so accommodating with my fiancé and I’s crazy busy work schedules.
We spent 2 hours playing and loving the puppies. We went over the entire contract very thoroughly and left with ZERO questions after picking our boy. Jillian is so incredibly passionate about raising the healthiest most obedient dogs, as well as helping families find the best dog for them.
We picked up our Rogan last Wednesday and it was the most seamless process.
She provided us with toys, a blanket with moms smell, a bag of food and all the necessary forms and paperwork we needed for the vet.
Rogan already knew his name, was going potty on his pee pads, knows the commands “come” and “sit”. He is so so smart we can’t believe it. He’s done so great with crate training each night, last night he slept 10-6pm!!! My fiancé and I believe wholeheartedly that the reason Rogan is so lovable, calm, and well mannered is because of Jillian and the way she raises her puppies. In a clean environment, surrounded by other animals, children, and a TON of love.
We get married and leave on our honeymoon for 10 days in September and Jillian went as far as to offer her services to board him with her while were gone.
I can’t say enough good things about our experience, and will never use another breeder again.
Not only did we find the dog of our dreams, but we’ve made a friend out of Jillian and her family.
So grateful to have found our sweet Rogan. Windsong for life🐾🐾

My boyfriend and I wanted a GoldenDoodle puppy for the longest time, but didn’t know where to search. After looking at breeders in SoCal, Windsong caught our eye. Her “rule of 7” for early stimulation really made us think about what type of dog we wanted, and we knew from that point we wanted a Windsong pup.
She was super helpful in the beginning stages of choosing a litter, and so communicative throughout honeymoons, ultrasounds, and delivery days!
We were on a list for a litter due in May, but Jillian emailed me when Mari gave birth to her (surprise) 10 puppies and asked if we would like to switch. That day, I said “this is what I paid for. This type of communication”. She also is the best at sending pictures, and keeping up to date on social media!
A few weeks later, we got our Golden Star, now Sunny. He has the best temperament and personality. You can tell how his first 8 weeks of life were, because he was happy from day 1!
On pick up day, we had 2 hours to choose our pup, even though we already knew Sunny was the one. Jillian went through her contact and supplied suggestions to training, feeding, etc. She was absolutely amazing and so helpful. Even still, she checks in on Sunny and is always responsive to any questions we have. We highly recommend Windsong Doodles to anyone looking for their dream pup.

“After our dog of 12 years passed away in April, we decided that June would be the right time to look for our next puppy. A goldendoodle was our choice. We began visiting many breeders in Southern California and chose Windsong Doodles because of the environment we got to experience. We gave our deposit in July even though the litter would be born in December. When the puppies were six weeks old, we came to choose our puppy and saw the happiest group of eight puppies interacting with each their mom and four other adult dogs, and three children all loving on these cuties. Rather than taking our puppy home after 8 weeks, we chose to enroll our puppy in the two-week puppy boot camp program. In early February we took our little guy home, he was potty trained, leash trained knew many of the basic commands of sit, stay, come, and most importantly. ‘ let’s go potty’.
The wait was worth it, we have the most loving, curious, playful, well behaved puppy. We are following our breeder’s, recommendations on the kind of organic food nutrients, supplements, and follow-up instructions, and they are always available for a quick call.
If you are looking for great breeder with providing a warm nurturing environment, producing loving healthy puppies Windsong is the place for you. I think in a year we will be looking for a companion for our little guy.
I believe so strongly about this breeder I will post my email for any questions. Irwinj29@mail.com”
