The Process - Step by Step

At Wild Paw Doodles, we have been building our reputation as a trusted Dog Breeder in Postville, IA since we bred our first animals back in 2017. We take our responsibilities very seriously and strive to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all our pets. That’s why the happiest days for us are when one of our animals is adopted by a loving and welcoming family.

Whether you get a goldendoodle, poodle,  sheepadoodle, or any type of doodle you will be showered with love, affection, craziness, happiness, and a life long partner.  

Please understand that any doodle is high maintenance and that includes regular grooming, high quality food, regular vetting, socialization, you will have good days and bad days with training.

Having a puppy of any breed will be exhausting at times, you will be overjoyed in the beginning, and there will be times that will make you question yourself.  

This is normal, this is a part of dog ownership, and it will pass.  Please understand that doodles need a job, training, social interactions, and more.  They thrive with human connection, they are bred that way by the breeds that create them.  Retrievers are just that "retrievers" they want to play, and fetch, they need to run off energy, and know they are loved.  

Poodles are workers too, they love to please, they have the ability to hunt game, they can be fancy, dorky, funny, and majestic all in the same day.  

Bringing these two breeds together makes for a puppy that can take on one side or both sides of their parents.  This isn't a bad thing at all, it means that you need to understand the breed and the requirements to give them the best life.  

Once you have your doodle figured out, they have their needs met, you will have the greatest companion of all.  They are smart, they have real emotions, they want you to be happy, and they completely love you.  

Let's Get Started!

Step 1 - Reach out via text, email, or Facebook messenger to get started.

Step 2 - Talk with us about which size, generation, litter(s) you want, and time frame.  

Step 3 - We talk with you about all the things you want/need in your puppy. We go over coat type, size as an adult, generation and what they mean, how soon you would like to welcome your new puppy home, and anything else you want to consider. 

Step 4 - We then need your address, email, and phone number for your file.

Step 5 - You send your deposit, that information can be found on the website.  

Step 6 - We add you to the list(s) of your choice, up to two.  

Step 7 - You follow along to find out when your choice litters have been bred, due dates, and birthday.  We update Facebook first.  

Step 8 - Once a litter is born, we set up the 6 week selection date. This can be done in person, video/photo selection, or FaceTime.  

Step 9 - We have updated photos added to our Facebook page around 10 days, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and 6 weeks.  You get to watch all of the litter grow up. 

Step 10 - We help you choose your puppy at 6 weeks, once we do that, we set up your pick up/delivery date, and what to expect afterwards.  

Selection Day Information

Selection Day is the Big Day where you get to pick out the puppy of your dreams.

At the 6 week mark of your puppy's life, we are able to start seeing dominance, timidity, coat structure, coat type, furnishings, and sociability in them. 

This age is great to get to play with and enjoy them as you decide which one you love. 

There are 4 ways to choose your puppy.


1. Visit 

2. Videos

3. Pictures 

During this process I work closely with you and your family to choose between all the before mentioned things.  

We will do 1 hour video & pictures as it takes awhile to download.  

I am always free to answer all questions that you may have along the way.  Remember that I am here for the lifetime of your pet.  I want to get you everything you want in your pet. 

We have started doing Facebook Events for Our Selection Process with times and dates.  I have these mother lists already planned there for you.  We will also have Puppy Pick Up Days scheduled there as well. This will make for a better way to keep you informed.  

I am working to make things easier for everyone and more clear.  I do get questions daily regarding these things so I plan to have all information localized to one place.  If you don't have Facebook. I will make sure to talk with you in regards to the process and you can read here for more information.
