After losing 2 of our large dogs, within weeks of each other, in the Spring of 2016, my mom and I went back and forth on the idea of bringing in another dog or not. We have an 8 yr old chow mix, who seemed to have separation anxiety issues start up, once she lost her canine friends. My sister sent my mom and I to the djpups.com website, after we realized it'd be easiest/best to bring in a puppy, rather than a shelter dog, as we had done in the past. This was the best decision we could've made. My mom, sister, her husband, and their 3 young boys, my daughter and I all met at Dori's place to see the pups, and we instantly knew they were well taken care of and that Dori runs her place in the best way possible. Coming from a family of constantly bringing in shelter dogs, large dogs, old and young, we highly recommend her pups. The communication was great and we enjoyed the comfort of sitting back, and holding many types of puppies and deciding which would be best for our family. Thanks so much, Dori and John! Little FELIX, our smallest dog ever, (yorkie poo), is doing well, and we're having a contest of whom will be potty-trained first...Felix or my 3 yr old, Frankie! :) haha. Kat B in Oglesby, IL.

I brought Munk home 3 weeks ago. He's is a cavapoo and it was love at first site. Dori did so well preparing him to come home. He was a lover from the start! We are 3 weeks in and yesterday was the first day we didn't have one accident inside. He rings his bells to go potty, can sit, lay down, and we are now working on rolling over. I had such a great experience with Dori. She answered all my questions from start to finish. Sent me picture of Munk every two weeks leading up to picking him up. Plus had very helpful information when I arrived to pick up Munk. I couldn't be happier with DJ pups or my little man at home. Thanks for spoiling him until I picked him up. Munk and I are very thankful I found DJ Pups.

We brought our Cavachon puppy home about 3 weeks ago. Dori was really easy to work with and the puppy is healthy and doing great....perfect dog for kids.

Just got back from the vet and got a very healthy rating for our new Cavapoo - Brady! Dori was great to work with. Her recommendation to wait until after Christmas was spot on and ten weeks was the right age to bring him home. Our puppy has adjusted really well to our family and even doing well with sleep and potty training!! We love our new puppy from DJPups!!

Dori, thought you would like to know that Lydia is now 4 years old. She is the Chihauhua, Maltese mix we got from you. She is the love of our lives, so healthy and happy. Thanks so much and have a great year.

I bought Max, a Cavachon, for my granddaughter. My son and I picked her up on December 23rd and our home hasn't been the same since! Max is adorable. He is this little furry ball of energy and he has taken over the house. He is healthy, energetic and very smart. He has taken to housebreaking easily; and, he will be starting training classes in January. It is so obvious that he has been well taken care of and Dori is very good at what she does. I was hesitant about going to a breeder, but I couldn't have made a better choice. Everyone that sees Max is smitten immediately. His coat is beautiful and he is the picture of health. I am referring Dori to everyone I know. Thanks, Dori for taking such obviously good care of these little pups and for your integrity. You give your profession a good name. I highly recommend DJ Pups.

We adopted a cavachon puppy and Izzy is doing great! She's been eating, and playing! Oh my gosh, last night she was a crazy little thing,... running all over and playing with me. She has acclimated to her new home very well. Dori was great to work with and she takes care of her puppies with lots of comfort and love. We are enjoying Izzy so much!!! Thank you again for this sweet little pup!!

We got our Maltipoo, Lulu, in October and she is everything I have ever dreamed of! Lulu was part of my engagement proposal and Dori was so wonderful in helping my fiancé pull it off! She is in perfect health and has the most darling personality. Potty training has been a breeze and obedience classes are going very well; she is so smart! I would recommend Dori to anyone and am so thankful she helped bring this bundle of joy into our lives!

I have had my Cavapoo, Penny, home for a little over a week now. She is doing great! Potty training is going very well. She's a little cuddle bug and is so much fun! Dori is great to work with. She was always very quick to get back to me and answered all of my questions. She was also very flexible with setting times and dates to visit the puppies. Our vet told us that we picked an excellent breeder and she was very impressed. Our vet also commented on Penny's excellent coat quality! Overall, I am extremely happy with my little Cavapoo, Penny!

We've had Nelson (cavapoo) for a week now and he is doing great! The vet visit went well and house training is off to a good start. He has already learned to sit on command and is the snuggle bug I was hoping for! He's full of energy and has a beautiful coat. Thank you, Dori!
