  • Chewie (Goldendoodle - Finley and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Here is our doodle from Rory and Finley's last litter. We named him Chewbacca, AKA "Chewie." He is a gentle giant and is a complete love bug. He's easily trained and is just overall a wonderful dog. We're thrilled with him. The only issue we've had is he gets motion sickness - poor puppy. He's around 40lbs already and keeps growing!"

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Maxx is almost 7 months now and getting close to 80 pounds! He is so beautiful and well behaved! He has a personality and sometimes has a mind of his own but is very smart and has learned all the tricks. He is so sweet and playful. We are loving him."

  • Luna (Goldendoodle - Torrie and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "I wanted to share with you how our Luna is doing and looking. She was born August 5th from Torrie and Rory. We LOVE her. She gets along great with our Maltese and he is so happy again after losing his litter mate in June. She is very smart, sweet and loving and honestly we could not ask for a more perfect dog. Thank you so much for breeding such high quality Goldendoodles."

  • Belle (Goldendoodle - Chili and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Belle is the best dog we have ever owned and we agree with other owners who own a Chili/Rory puppy and wish we could own one of their puppies for the rest of our lives!! We love reading the other testimonials about the other litter mates because it is as if we are reading about our Belle. She is 8 months old and weighs 51 pounds. She is the sweetest and smartest dog and is awesome with children. She loves to roll around and play on the floor with our 6 year-old and 3 year-old and also loves to just lay on the floor and be their pillow. She goes everywhere with us (even to have her picture taken professionally for our Christmas cards). She loves other dogs and plays so well with other dogs and we hope to add another Chili/Rory puppy to the family in the future. The trait we love most about Belle is her smile. Yes, you read that correctly...she smiles. She smiles all the time and just enjoys life with us but not as much as we enjoy life with her! Thank you for such a kind and sweet loving family member who is our third child."

  • Jax (Goldendoodle - Chili and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We just wanted to send you an update on Jax (boy red) from Chili and Rory's April 2017 litter. He just turned 6 months and is already 55 pounds! He is the sweetest, smartest dog and has the best personality! Jax was potty trained by 10 weeks and became an AKC star puppy at 16 weeks. He loves people and has to greet every person we encounter by rolling over for a belly rub. Everyone stops us to ask where we got him and comment on his beautiful color. Jax is the perfect addition to our family, and we can't imagine our lives without him! Thank you for giving us the perfect pup!"

  • Astro (Goldendoodle - Chili and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Astro (boy Blue from Chili-Rory April 2017 litter) has been such an amazing addition to our family. We have never met a dog with so much personality. It's as if he has human instincts! He hasn't met a stranger yet, plays really well with children and dogs of all sizes, and even attempts to befriend cats (with mixed results). Some of our neighbors claim that Astro is their favorite dog in the neighborhood, as he tries to get a belly rub out of anybody. In his short 6 months we have been to multiple lake trips, camping, and the beach. He adjusts perfectly to every environment which makes it easy to take him with us everywhere. If only it was possible to have a Chili-Rory dog for the rest of our lives, we most certainly would! Thank you for such a wonderful, hilarious, and handsome puppy!"

    "I wanted to send you an update about our doodle! We got Murphy the Sunday before Thanksgiving last year. He was boy orange from Blythe and Rory's second litter. He just turned 1 a couple of weeks ago, and he's doing great! He's a sweet, energetic pup, and has been a wonderful addition to our family! Here's a recent picture of our handsome dood!"

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We have gotten a lot of comments on how beautiful Harper is, from strangers on the street to people online. Thought you would enjoy some pictures! She just had her first haircut. We are beyond happy with her, and we are so appreciative that we found excellent breeders like you guys! Thank you for what you're doing :)"

  • Comet (Goldendoodle - Bess and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Comet just turned 8 months old, and he's 55 lbs, tall and slender and super fluffy! He loves to fetch and play in the ocean. He's very social, loves people and other dogs. He's super sweet and gentle and has a very mellow (but playful) personality. Thank you so much for such an amazing dog. He's the perfect addition to our family. We couldn't be happier!"

  • Theo (Goldendoodle - Chili and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Theo is now 5 months old & the highlight of our lives. He is so loving & playful especially with other dogs & children! He has been in puppy school for 2 weeks now & is the star student! I plan on continuing his training to become a service dog. My goal is to be able to take him to local hospitals including CHKD to visit with sick children & patients. He absolutely adores kids & I know he will just love it. He should be fully certified by 1 year old. His fur coat is the softest fur ever and his coloring is like no other. I get compliments every single time he comes out of the house with me! Even on walks around the neighborhood people come outside their homes to see him! He is everything I could ever want in a puppy. We cannot thank you, Chili & Rory enough for giving us this perfect baby boy!"

  • Idgie (Goldendoodle - Chili and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We bought a goldendoodle from you last year, and she turned a year old today! She was the female turquoise puppy from Chili Pepper's first litter. We named her Idgie, from the book/movie Fried Green Tomatoes. She loves people, other animals, children, long walks, bicycling, and any type of fetch! We currently have her in dog therapy training in hopes that she will be a therapy dog at the hospital where we both work. She has brought a lot of joy to our lives the past year, and we look forward to many years to come. Below is a picture of her when she was a puppy, and of a picture I took of her today."

  • Rooney (Goldendoodle - Adelle and Willy)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We are in love with Rooney and can't imagine life without him. From day one he has been the sweetest, cuddliest, most social puppy. He loves kids, dogs, and we are still waiting for his cat sibling to come around. I'm sure that Rooney will love the cat too! We started crate training immediately and command training with him at 12 weeks. He is so smart and it made for an easy transition to our home. His nickname is "Nature Boy" as he loves to be outside with nature. He has been a wonderful addition to our family."

  • Arabel (Goldendoodle)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We went to our vet this morning for Arabel's second set of immunization shots. Our vet was very pleased with her appearance, growth and physical condition. Arabel continues to be the family darling, and is coming along well with housebreaking and primary commands. Her personality is developing and she is more "ladylike" than our English Bulldog, Maggie. Indeed, they play rough and tumble together but how they interact with us humans couldn't be more different. Arabel is definitely friendly but likes her space and at times can be aloof. She wants to be with us and follows, especially me, from room to room. She is quite the cuddler with our daughter, Audrey, but treats her as a peer. With me she will play tug of war for an hour at a time. Then we launch into a primary training session when she's spent enough energy to focus on her "home schooling". She sleeps through the night and takes 3-4 short naps through the day. She almost voluntarily goes into her crate to nap, but not as voluntarily as she rings her bells to be let outside."

  • Bodie(Goldendoodle - Bess and Kubby)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Bodie is such an amazing dog and our lives are so much better with him in it! He has an amazing temperament, was very quick/easy to train, and continues to charm everyone he meets! Our 65lb ball of fluff gets along with every dog/person he meets and loves cuddling with his family! We continue to be stopped by admirers on our walks around town and we always sing the praises of McKenzie Doodles! :-) This past October, Bodie added the title of "big brother" to his resume, and has been wonderful with the new addition to our family. Although a little shy at first, he warmed right up to his baby brother and now doesn't want to leave his side! We are thankful for Bodie every single day and are just waiting for a bigger house until we can welcome another McKenzie Doodle into our family!"

  • Penny (Goldendoodle - Blythe and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "My husband, boys and I picked out a beautiful, curly redheaded girl from Blythe and Rory's litter. We named her Penny and she has adapted well into our family of two boys and one cat. She is sweet, smart and loves snuggling just as much as playing. We could not have asked for a better dog."

  • Honey (Goldendoodle - Blythe and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We picked out girl yellow, the smallest of the bunch. My three kids named her Honey, and she is doing great. She is a voracious eater, loves her dog food and chew toys, and now weighs just under 20lbs. She loves playing in the snow and romping through the trees and chasing soccer balls in the backyard. We are surrounded by dogs in our neighborhood and Honey is making fast friends."

  • Red (Goldendoodle - Nelly and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "I bought a puppy recently from Nelly and Rory's litter and oh my goodness. I've never loved a dog as much as I love this little guy. He is SO incredibly sweet and affectionate, plus clumsy and silly. He has brought much joy to our home in the short time we've had him. Upon taking "Red" to the vet, our vet warned us every puppy she sees has worms from being in the litter and being passed down from mom. Not our dog :) The vet was impressed with the health of our dog. I cannot thank you enough for working so patiently with me to find the right dog."

  • Rocky (Goldendoodle - Chili and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "I just wanted to write and give you an update on "boy orange," a.k.a., Rocky. He is from Chili and Rory's first litter and he blessed our home and our lives approximately five weeks ago. We can't begin to express how much happiness and joy he has brought our entire family. He is absolutely the best puppy in the world and we are so blessed to call him ours. He is such a great boy and everyone is immediately impressed by his calm and sweet demeanor. Even our vet says it's like an adult dog trapped in a puppy's body. He is growing quickly and is already 21 pounds at 14 weeks. He's also doing great with his training. We are in love with our boy!"

    "I wanted to send you a little update about one of the pups from the Rory and Bess litter. Animal (named after the muppet drummer) is doing amazingly! He is a happy-go-lucky boy, who has brought us so much joy. He is very smart and well-behaved. Thank you so much for raising such sweet puppies."

  • Copper (Goldendoodle - Chili and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We are delighted with the puppy we brought home on November 26th from Chili and Rory's litter! I wanted to let you know that he was the inspiration for a blog post for the company we both work for, and share the link in case you were interested. We both work for a company that makes a copper-infused material for use in hospitals (because copper kills bacteria that can lead to infections). For that reason (and his beautiful color) we named our puppy Copper. Thank you for helping us find the perfect puppy for our family!"

    Here's the post he inspired

  • Teddy (Goldendoodle - Blythe and Rory)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We bought Teddy (boy orange) from you. He was the biggest puppy in Blythe and Rory's first litter, born in November 2015. Teddy just turned a year old last month, and he is the best dog ever. He is so sweet and lovable. He always wants to be around people, and is happy to play anytime. He is an impressive 70 pounds, and has the longest legs. When he stands on his hind legs, he is about five feet tall! He thinks he is a lap dog, despite his size, and is ready and willing to snuggle on any available surface. He does have a tendency to eat anything and everything (non-edibles included), but he is so devoted and just plain happy. We just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful dog. Our three daughters adore him, and we can't imagine our family without him now. Even the grandparents spoil him. People often stop us on walks to comment about what a beautiful dog he is. Thank you both so much for such amazing dog. We love him so much!"

    "I wanted to send you a pic of Ollie, from Bess and Rory's May litter. He's all ready for Halloween! ;) I just had to tell you how obsessively in love I am with him! He is so sweet and funny, and it's unbelievable how good he is for a 5 month old puppy. We just adore him! I know you like to get updates so thought I would share! Thank you for Ollie... He's the best!!"

  • Ellie (Goldendoodles - Adelle and Willy)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Ellie is a great pup! I can honestly say that she came home potty trained and rang the bell immediately. In addition, she slept through the night without crying and would let me sleep in! I get so many compliments on her personality and coloring. I've had people pull over in their cars to pet and see her. My friends joke that she is a berniedoodle. I couldn't ask for a better pup!"

  • Jasper (Goldendoodles - Adelle and Willy)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We say choosing Jasper (boy red) was the hardest decision our family has had to make. Adele and Willy make gorgeous puppies! Since day 1 he has been super sweet, friendly and extremely intelligent. He loves absolutely everyone and everything and just can't understand why the bunnies and squirrels won't play with him. He has so much personality, he's always smiling and winking and enjoys tricking us by pretending to be sleeping. He's learned several tricks and has been relatively easy to train. We are madly in love with our newest family member and know we made the right choice with McKenzie's Doodles!"

We're absolutely thrilled with his unique coloring. When we take him for walks, people stop in their tracks to comment on how gorgeous he is. Thanks!"

Lilly has mastered the steps already, I was amazed! She has quite the personality and she sleeps all night! Thanks again for a great pups!"

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Just wanted to give an update on our Phoenix. She is a Goldendoodle from Adelle. She turned 1 year in April, and she is finally starting to calm down from her puppy stage. She is super smart and so gorgeous. We get compliments on her wherever we go. She plays well with our three children and helps my oldest when he is overwhelmed with life. She does enjoy mud a bit too much for my taste, but so do my kids, so she fits in nicely. :) She has her favorite 'stuffy' which she cuddles and takes care of. She follows me around the house and lays at my feet. She has become a part of our family and we are so happy to have her. "

  • Doodle (Goldendoodle - Gracie and Heston)

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "We took home one of your Goldendoodle puppies Labor Day weekend 2013. You probably don't remember my husband and I, but we had only been married a few months and I was 10 weeks pregnant when we added the puppy to our family. We named him Doodle. His parents were Gracie and Heston. Well I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how Doodle was doing. He turned 3 years old yesterday. Doodle is a great dog! Very smart (maybe too smart!), wonderful with the kids (we have a 2 year old and 8 month old now), and is a great watch dog. He is a big boy, weighing in at almost 80lbs. His fur is wavy, but we keep it cut short (cooler for him and safer since the baby loves to pet him). Everyone loves him!"

We love her curious and outgoing personality, but she has a very shy and loving side as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you for breeding this adorable little girl of ours. She weighs just at 60 pounds - just what we hoped for. Please know that she is a beloved part of our family!"

    "This is our beautiful 78-pound Murphy who turns 1 year old this month! He's a joy and a sweetie pie and oh so smart! The biggest heart and he loves everyone. . .and of course everyone loves him. He still goes to doggy camp every day, but can't wait to get home and tell us all about his day. He's had a busy 1st year...sailing, traveling and making lots of new friends. We feel very fortunate that he's had a healthy, stress free life so far. Can't say thank you enough, Susan, for our big, handsome guy...ps the vet says he's not finished growing!"

  • Oakely

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "I wanted to send you an email to share with you the joy our dog Oakley has brought to our family and friends. We purchased Oakley from you in 2011. He was one of 3 older puppies you had left over from a litter that wasn't sold. When my boyfriend (now husband) and I came to visit you two of the puppies ran off near the shed playing together and Oakley stayed close to meet us. He essentially "picked us". For the past couple years, my dad has been "sharing custody" of Oakley with us. My dad owns his own businesses a trucking company and a farm. So Oakley is much happier with him during the week while my husband and I are at work all day. We get to enjoy his company on the weekends when we are home. Oakley literally goes everywhere with my dad during the week. He greets all my dad's truck drivers in the early morning when they come to work and he stands guard in the office during the day. My dad has major hearing loss and Oakley alerts him whenever someone pulls up at the business. When new visitors come, they are greeted by cautious Oakley that lets them know he's there to protect the female office manager and my dad until they call him down. Never biting, just making his presence known and standing his ground like a good guard dog. The ladies at the bank let Oakley come inside so they can love on him. The groomer he goes to has been in business for 10 years and says that Oakley is the best dog they have ever encountered. He will literally go from the bathing station to the drying station to the crate on command and they don't bother shutting the crate door. Even with the other dogs as distractions, Oakley stays in the crate with the door open waiting patiently for my dad to return to pick him up. We have many wonderful memories with Oakley over the years....The story that prompted me to send you this email happened yesterday. We have a close family friend (Ellen) that keeps Oakley when my father and I both are out of town. Ellen kept Oakley for us last weekend and then delayed returning him until Thursday because she wanted to spend more time with him. Ellen's mother Thelma is in her 80's and loves having Oakley around too. I spoke with Thelma before the weekend... I said "you get to keep Oakley this weekend". Thelma said, "I'm lucky!" and grinned from ear-to-ear. Thelma had a stroke Monday a few days after keeping Oakley for her last time. Thelma is in the ICU now at the hospital and is fading fast. My dad went to the hospital last night and Ellen needed a break so she came out to the parking garage to visit Oakley. Oakley rides "shotgun" with dad so Ellen got in the driver's seat to say hello. Oakley crossed over the console and sat on her lap. He put his head on her chest and put his left paw on her shoulder. Ellen instantly burst into tears. Oakley could sense her pain and wanted to console her aching heart. Our family, our friends and the community all love Oakley. Thank you for providing him to our family."

  • Lexi

    Goldendoodle Photo

    "Lexi's brought a tremendous amount of joy and laughter to our house. So much so, it's hard to remember what life was like before her. We can t thank you enough. She's fantastic with the kids and loves to snuggle. We still can't get over the fact that she doesn't shed. In fact, we love her coat so much we can't bring ourselves to have her groomed. It won t be too much longer though. I should also tell you that as happy as she's made us, our German Shepherd (Oden) has been ecstatic. He took the loss of our other Shepherd really hard. He desperately needed a purpose and Lexi gave him that and more. They play all the time and he's always looking out for her. Thank you again for everything."

    "Susan,thought I'd share a couple of pictures of Daisy, born 9/24/14. I believe she was the runt of the litter. She has been an unbelievable dog. We ve owned a lot of dogs, and we ve had some wonderful companions over many years. But my wife and I always exclaim, Daisy is the best dog ever, by far, hands down. She has such a great and well-balanced temperament. She's so friendly, well behaved. She's just perfect."

    "We love our Goldendoodle Charlie! He is the best family dog ever! He gets along wonderfully with our two young daughters. He is 7 months old and extremely gentle, loving, and was surprisingly easy to train. Sue and Jim are very knowledgable and went above and beyond to help us pick the perfect addition to our family. I and both of my daughters have allergies and asthma and we haven't had any problems with Charlie. We highly recommend McKenzie's Doodles!"

I would highly recommend Mckenzie doodles! Sue is so knowledgeable and caring. She was very helpful throughout the whole process of getting our dog. If you choose a goldendoodle from Mckenzie Doodles you will not be dissappointed! "

  • Barkley

    Irish Doodle Testimonial of Riley

    "This is an exceptional dog. At 10 weeks he sits, lays, and comes on command. He's mostly housebroken. Best of all he's the most affectionate dog we've ever had. Clearly your early work makes for a very social animal. He continues to demonstrate his alpha characteristics, but is lovable...a true Velcro dog...wherever we are, he is. We took a day trip Friday and it went perfectly. We haven't done much work on the leash because he stays with us when we're outside. He's a sweetie. You do an outstanding job with these dogs. Thanks for all you do to produce such remarkable companions, a true member of the family. Just an update: Barkley is almost 50 lbs now...a delightful member of the family! He's full of himself, but a great part of the family! Thanks again for these wonderful animals!"
