We wanted to add another Goldendoodle to our family, we already have Perci who is 6 and the time seemed right to introduce a puppy .
Goldendoodles are a fabulous breed very family orientated, loving , have a great sense of humour and just make life better.
Following lots of research and a recommendation we contacted Lisa at Skensadoodles. From our first phone call I knew Lisa was a lady who cared deeply about her dogs and what she does.
We waited a year for our puppy but it was worth the wait. We wanted a chocolate golden doodle and if possible a phantom . Our dreams came true when “ Nellie “ was born.
Following the puppies grow and develop is an absolute privilege. Seeing the work Lisa puts in to her puppies just makes you appreciate it’s isn’t just a job it’s a vocation.
We are so lucky to have a Skensadoodle puppy, Nellie is an absolute delight, she was given the best start in life , her and Perci are double the fun.
You don’t just buy a puppy from Skensadoodles, you buy into a lifetime of support.

This is Basil when he was about 4 months old and is one of thousands of photos I have of him. I cannot praise Lisa enough and have every confidence in her as a breeder and the important way she ensures the puppies are bred to the best standard of health and temperament.
Care and support is top of her priorities and I love our Skenasdoodle so much- thank you Lisa
Buying a dog from Skenasdoodles has been a joy. The training and love that Lisa and her team put into these puppies makes them have such good standards to start their journey.
Getting a new puppy is daunting and in those first weeks Lisa has guided our family with useful advice and tips. I would recommend Skenasdoodles 100% to anyone who wants a goldendoodle. The wait is so worth it, there is a reason for that long wait and it is because you get the best dog ever. Boris has changed our lives in a couple of weeks for the better. Thank you Skenasdoodles xx
Found Lisa via Facebook and can highly recommend buying a puppy from her. She clearly knows everything about everything there is to know about dogs and is always happy to answer any queries or worries you may have. We bought 'Nala' our Clumberdoodle and she is now 9 months old. She is an absolute joy as are all of her puppies judging by the regular updates about them on Facebook. Lisa is just wonderful and when we collected Nala she made us very welcome and gave us a great information booklet as well as lots of other useful doggy things! All in all I wouldn't go anywhere else for a puppy!
We can’t thank Skenasdoodles enough for entrusting us with one of their Golden Doodle puppies. Cooper is just over 3 now and he came from a litter from Olive and Mufasa.
Skenasdoodles are so unique and special, and Lisa and her family’s dedication and love for their dogs is apparent from the moment you meet them.
We are so blessed to have Cooper; he is our world. He is 100% loyal and he loves his family as much as we love him. He has such a beautiful temperament with people and other dogs, and he is adored by anybody that comes into contact with him. He loves nothing more than being out sniffing in the woods, he has a quiet confidence about him which allows him to explore but he always has an eye on where you are as he doesn’t like to be far away from you. He loves to play, and we still laugh when he has a ‘doodle moment’ – his tail goes between his legs, and he literally scoots around in circles.
We feel very privileged to have been able to watch Cooper grow, from the moment he was born Lisa shared daily updates and videos on Facebook, so we really did feel that he became part of our family long before we even met him. Being able to see his little eyes opening for the first time, seeing him having his first bath and many more special moments was such a privilege to watch.
Being part of the Skenasdoodles ‘family’ brings a lot of comfort if you have concerns or questions – there is always somebody to offer advice and a solution if you are ever worried.
Lisa’s unconditional love for each and every beautiful puppy born is heartfelt and we will be forever thankful for having the opportunity to bring a Skenasdoodles puppy into our family.
With thanks, The Arthur Family
I started from scratch and searched far and wide for a good breeder of goldendoodles. Each time Lisa@Skendasdoodles came up with excellent reviews. I took the plunge and filled in the questionnaire and put my name down for a puppy.
I joined the facebook group - sorry not sorry for stalking! I waited a year for a puppy to become available and when Lisa phoned it was like talking to a long lost friend. I had no idea that she was vetting me. From that day on there were daily pupdates online and Lisa was on hand to answer any questions – nothing was too much.
We took Mabel home at the end of April 2019. She is an F1b goldendoodle and the most beautiful dog inside and out. Lisa really goes above and beyond to ensure that her dogs and pups have the best lives.
In September 2020 we collected our second Skenasdoodles pup, Winnie. She is an F1 Bernadoodle and is simply the biggest ball of fluff you can imagine with the most gentle, laid back temperament.
We are all besotted and I can’t recommend Lisa highly enough.
Found Lisa by pure chance, bought Louie the Goldendoodle, now two years old, beautiful dog, not a nasty bone in his body. 18 months later we got Amber the clumberdoodle again a delightful dog. So much information comes with the dogs and the facebook page in invaluable. We would thoroughly recommend Lisa, she cares.
I was recommended Lisa by another breeder. Lisa called and asked lots of questions and gave information to help us decide. Before our puppy arrived Lisa sent regular updates and photos. When we brought Henry home he was a very happy content puppy who was clearly well socialised. He's got a gentle and very happy boy who loves a cuddle which clearly has been helped by his great care as a puppy.
Cant recommend Lisa enough
We came across Lisa through our neighbour and got Oonagh our Standard Poodle from her. Lisa is an outstanding breeder with fantastic aftercare. Having owned a poodle before I can say that Lisa's are of a very high standard (no pun intended!) , and Elsa and Django's puppies seem to possess the best of poodle traits and Oonagh is highly affectionate. Lisa seems to always be available to help, however small the issue. She has been incredibly helpful with looking after Oonagh at short notice as we have had a few unexpected needs since getting her. Oonagh loves going back, a testament to Lisa's relationships with dogs. Personally I wouldn't consider any other breeder. I feel we are part of something having got our beautiful girl from Lisa, and that is down to her efforts to create a community of owners through social media. All of her recommendations in regard to food, behaviour and even the best groomer to use have been faultless.

Fab, Fab, Fab our puppy is just amazing in every way. We had to wait seven months for her but she was so worth the wait. She has slept through the night from day one and has been dry too! We have owned dogs for years but Lisa exceeded all of our expectations of her as our breeder. We know that she is there for us whenever we have any questions.
A Skenasdoodles puppy is worth the wait for sure, our baby completes our family.
‘Well what can I say.......Lisa is an amazing breeder! We recently welcomed our Bernedoodle, Peggy Sue, into our family. She is a dream! All credit to Lisa (and her wonderful dogs Henni and Mufasa). Peggy Sue came to us just over 8 weeks of age, she was toilet trained and also came to the whistle - amazing at such a young age and was an excellent head start for us. Communication throughout is outstanding and we had regular updates with videos and pictures. I can’t thank Lisa enough for our lovely, cuddly Bernedoodle.
Forever grateful, Julia xxx
Lisa does not raise pets, she raises family members! Her Puppies are addictive, so cute, so fun, you won't be able to resist and most buyers come back for a second one! When you know the heartache of poorly bred dogs Lisa is a champion of healthy breeding - food, health tests, socialising, she pays an incredible amount of attention to details that ensure that the companion you get is a healthy happy pup. Our Ziggy a clumber doodle arrived 9 months ago and she is a joy. Our family personally thank Lisa for all her care in raising such a delightful pup.
Our Bernedoodle is our first family pet, I searched for a long time to find a breeder who I connected with immediately, could trust 100% and answered all of my questions. Lisa was recommended by a number of my friends as “the best in class for breeders” and they were not wrong.
Throughout the pregnancy Lisa kept us updated regularly with news of progress via videos and photos and even when mum was in labour- we were kept up to date throughout. Daily videos and photos were provided by Lisa once the litter was born - I felt like I knew her even though we had never met previously due to Covid restrictions!
Lisa’s support once our puppy was home was also phenomenal - from poops to sleeping and food, she was on hand with our questions and concerns. Lisa is so thoughtful and caring.
Our Bernedoodle is so sweet natured and calm, he was well socialised with other dogs, noise tested with household items and had amazing recall as soon as he came home - all of this from Lisa’s hard work in caring for the puppies in their first 8 weeks.
Lisa’s Facebook page which we joined, is a community, with previous families sharing stories and commenting on new litters.
Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Skenasdoodles to anyone considering bringing a dog into their family. She really is a breeder who is more than best in class.
We got Lulu, a F1b Goldendoodle (Stella and Django puppy) 2yrs ago to be my assistant dog she has been a great help to my family and me she is on her last stage of training to be fully qualified and is very smart and picks up lots of new things every day, she always makes people turnaround and watch her as she goes about her work and I wouldn’t be without her. Lisa is very helpful and goes that extra mile, while making sure her puppies and her older dogs are well cared for and are happy, the dogs get to go to the beach which not a lot of dog breeders would even think of. If you get a dog from her you will not be sorry.
We met our poodle at Lisa's exactly a year after loosing our beloved Standard at 15.5 years. I found the meeting emotional as i hadn't seen a litter of Poodles since first meeting Gracie all those years ago.
Lisa was so kind and understanding, and made us feel that there couldn't be any better people than us to have our chosen puppy. This meant a lot to us, that she recognised that we are the type of people who treat a dog as so much more than a pet.
7 years ago we collected our exceptional, gorgeous phantom goldendoodle, Dorri, from the friendly and helpful Lisa’s, family home.
A very bright and loving puppy, who was quick to house train and who loved learning tricks and manners. Her enthusiasm for the world and its moving parts took a further 5 years to settle! 😂🤣😅
6 months ago we collected the amazing Toobee, our affectionate super smart bernedoodle. He was already trained in so many experiences. The vet was really impressed with the thorough file of information that came with him.
As a new arrival he was quick to house train and always keen to please and cuddle. We took Lisa’s invaluable advice and, as soon as he was covered by vaccinations, walked him off lead. He continues to stay with us and has brilliant recall...unless he has found a little something to devour! 😊
We picked up our lovely Bonnie on the day we met her. Normally this is not the way to do it, but I knew through Lisa's Facebook group and from speaking to her that these pups were well bred, well raised and well loved!
And how right I was! Bonnie is such an excellent addition to our family it's like she's always been here! She came to us pretty much house trained and soooooo loving and chilled out that to train her was just a breeze.
Lisa is the kindest most caring breeder I've ever met. If she thinks a dog is not right for a family she won't let them go with them.
She is always there to answer owners questions no matter how "silly" they may seem EVEN if they are about non skenasdoodle dogs!
Great dogs, great family, fantastic breeders xxx
From the moment we had a conversation with Lisa about the temperament of a dog we were looking for, we knew we had found a breeder whose main priority was to make sure the puppy fitted with the right family. We were kept updated regularly throughout the whole process, through phone calls, emails and video calls. Being able to watch the puppies develop into their unique personalities was a real privilege. When the time came to finding the right puppy, Lisa guided us with her invaluable knowledge and ensured we were matched with the perfect puppy for our family and lifestyle. Having had dogs in our families before, but with this being our first puppy, it has been a comfort to know that Lisa’s outlook of “no question is a silly one” means we can always ask for advice.
From the day Rudy arrived to his forever home, he settled in perfectly, which is all down to the start in life that Lisa gave him. He is a calm, gentle, loyal, playful and extremely clever dog. We love him more everyday and can’t imagine life without him. Everyday he brings us joy, cuddles and never fails to make us smile.
Thank you so much to Lisa and the Skenasdoodles team.
Why cant all breeders be like Lisa?
Lisa goes above and beyond with every aspect of her breeding programme. We could not be happier with our Goldendoodle and we would NEVER buy a dog from anywhere else ever again. The care and attention that is put into every single one of her litters is unbelievable.
Our puppy came to us at just under nine weeks of age, he was clean over night and slept through in his crate from day one.
Lisa whistle trains the puppies from the moment they can eat and we feel that this has made a huge impact on recall training, our whistle comes everywhere with us!
If you are lucky enough to be offered one of Lisa's much loved babies I would suggest that you snap them up. Best thing we have done for a long time!
Thank you so much Lisa and family,
We would totally recommend Lisa!!
Genuinely caring breeder.
The most loving breeder I have ever spoken to, Lisa cares so much abour her puppies - finding the right home for them is so important to her.
Her adult dogs are all exceptionally friendly, they are all very healthly, well exercised and have clearly been socialised well during their younger years.
Our puppy came to our home a very happy, healthy confident ball of fun!
Having now bought a dog from Lisa I would not go anywhere else. I hope to add a second Skenasdoodles puppy to our family in the next year or so. (Kate)
I feel so lucky and blessed to have found Lisa as a breeder. The attention to detail the care, love and commitment Lisa puts into looking after and breeding her dogs is second to none.
After loosing my Golden Retriever early last year, I wanted to find a Goldendoodle breeder. There are many out there, but most will not come up to the standards that Skenasdoodles offer.
Although we faced lockdown and a pandemic, I always felt very confident in choosing her as a breeder, with regular videos and photos of the puppies and Mum, plus lots advice from Lisa making the process easy. I even pick my out puppy via FaceTime, which worked fantastically, as Lisa knew her puppies personality’s really well, and could match them with their prospective owners.
I’ve had Radley now for a year. From the moment he joined the family he’s been at home. All the time and effort Lisa puts into rearing these puppies shows straight away. He is and was from the start a healthy, calm, lovable, cuddley dog, who is sociable with other dogs and humans a like. I could not ask for a nicer dog, and it was certainly “Love at first sight!” Lisa has also been there if there are any queries or concerns, coming back with a wealth of knowledge to answer any questions.
I would highly recommend Skenasdoodles for any one looking for the breeds she deals with. In fact my eldest son is on the waiting list for the next lot of Goldendoodle’s!
We have owned a Skenasdoodle Goldendoodle for almost three years now. He is just amazing.
Lisa just ticks all the boxes, her care whilst rearing the puppies is exceptional and all I can say is that her aftercare is spot on - i know that she is just a phone call away if i am every concerned, or just have a dog related question I can always contact her - her response is always professional, caring and she always responds promptly no matter what.
We are so very happy that we found our breeder in Lisa - we will be back for a second puppy for sure!
