My husband and I went to get our little boy Finn (AB name Garth) at end of May. It was a long drive out there but worth it. When we got there I was a little taken back because it was a working farm as well. The children greeted us and shook our hands. The barn where the puppies and dogs were kennels with fans and AC. The kennels were very clean and so were the dogs. The dogs all looked happy and they all wanted your attention. We notice a puppy separated from the rest. The owner told us she had an intestinal resection and that she was ready to go back with her litter. They just wanted to be sure. Most breeders would have put her down but they didn’t and that speaks volumes to us. We couldn’t leave her behind so we got both. Harley and Finn. These two pups checked out great at our vet. No worms or parasites at all. They are so sweet and extremely smart. At 15 weeks old they already know how to sit and wait for their food. Because the puppies are NOT raised in a home they are easier to potty train. They are also easy to train because they have had limited bad habits they picked up. They are wonderful. I posted videos and pics. I would highly recommend this place for your doodles. They have a lot of puppies but they love them all and it shows in our two babies. Feel free to message me if you have questions.
Love our Sam!
Swithin (now Sam) is doing quite well. He was diagnosed with a mild hip dysplasia at his 6 month checkup. The vet said as long as we keep his weight down it should not be a problem. We recently added an invisible fence so he has more freedom. He’s very happy and we love him!
We wanted to update you on Milo (formerly Glendon). He will be 2 years old the beginning of March. We moved from Maryland to Idaho this past June. Milo loves the winter and our loads of snow. He is over 100 pounds and nothing but silly and love. He is very well behaved and smart. He loves hiking and swimming. We are blessed to have him. He and our lab Kodiak love each other to pieces. Thanks again!
Best pups ever!
We adopted Charlie ( Formerly Sanders) at almost 7 months old in April of 2020 and he is an angel boy. We had to have another. We adopted our Flynn (Formerly Earl) March 2021 and they are both a dream. Our vet calls them perfect boys. They are sweet, gentle, loving and playful. I highly recommend Al bark and will only buy my pups here.
We picked up our girl, Fiona Reign in September. She is now 6 months old. An absolute beauty & joy to our family. She’s a great girl. Friendly & loving. She was 1000% against crate training, she just wants to always be with her people and we are delighted to have her. She’s a typical Doodle, her style, her personality and we can’t wait to watch her continue to grow. Dealing with this Breeder was top-notch. Our first pup was found to have a heart murmur, the Breeder told us and gave me the option of purchasing or passing. I thought that was a top-notch professional. The farm was in a beautiful setting in Western MD. Close to Deep Creek Lake which allowed us a weekend getaway too. I would recommend it to anyone and we are even considering a second pup this year. Thank you.
BEST Temperament Of Any Puppy I Have Seen
We purchased “Adrian” who we have renamed Berkeley in early June. He was the last of his litter who hadn’t been purchased so we got him at 4 months old. He has been such a wonderful addition to our family. When I tell you he has the BEST temperament of any puppy I have seen. He is so calm and well behaved and we have barely done any training. He is almost 6 months old and is currently 45lbs, he is definitely going to be a big boy but is such a gentle giant. So far no health issues have come up but will continue to monitor it 🙂
Love Our Sweet Boy!
We adopted Duke (formerly Marshall) on April 24, 2021, at 4 months old. Today makes 1 full month of us having him. He will be 5 months on the 3rd. We are so in love! So glad that we decided to go with Albark Kennels when making such a big decision, especially with us driving approximately 4.5 hrs to bring him home. He is a happy and healthy puppy! He’s definitely full of energy and keeps us on our toes daily! Thanks again, Albark!
Such a great personality!
My husband and I traveled to Albark Kennels to bring home Zarah (original name). When we arrived we felt such a warm welcome as you prepared one of “our” love ones for travel. Once Zarah arrived home, it was as if she was meant for our family. Her personality is truly one of a kind. She is such a gentle hearted dog who enjoys playing in the mud but also the evening television shows and snuggles. Though not yet a year old, she has already grown into such a loving girl.
Bentley’s doing great! He’s such a loving and caring puppy. He was really easy to house train. We are now working on getting his commands down, although he knows most of them he is a little stubborn unless there are treats involved. We are so happy with our experience with Al-bark Kennels.
One Year Anniversary!
We drove to Maryland right as quarantine started last March. We picked up Clooney (formerly Konner) and fell in love immediately! He has been the best boy for the past year and was truly a blessing in disguise during a crazy time. Albark did amazing taking care of him before we picked him up. he’s the cuddliest, sweetest Goldendoodle! Thank you Albark!
We got our puppy from you this past summer at the end of July. My husband Mike my daughter Jordan and I drove from Scituate MA to pick up Schmidt now named Koda. We could not be happier! Koda is an amazing dog and we have already grown to love him enormously in a very short time! Everyone who meets him compliments us on how cute he is and on his adorable personality! He is very smart and so playful! I am a dog walker so I take him with me which he enjoys immensely! All the other dogs love to play with him. My mother Meg Baer and her husband Bill just got a puppy from you about three weeks ago. After meeting Koda they had to have a puppy just like him. He is a giant fluff ball weighing 72 pounds and I think still growing! Happy New Year to you and your family!
We picked up Louie at 8 weeks. He came to us clean and healthy and full of affection. He has grown so much over the past 4 weeks and is really a sweet goldendoodle. I was so pleased with Albark Kennels and I can tell they take great care with these puppies. Louie had his first vet visit and was found to be in perfect health with absolutely no concerns. He is easy to train and works hard for kibble. Very few accidents in the house and he uses a bell to ask to go outside already! He is a puppy from Lanette and Lafayette’s litter. I’m already stalking their page for another puppy, don’t tell my husband.
“Scooby”-do we love you!”
Our Scooby (alias Bruce) is a real joy! He looks to be the size of a full adult however he is still a lovable puppy. He will be 1 yr. old in September. Every trait attributed to the Goldendoodles, he seems to possess. He is smart, loves to be petted (by family and all who meet him), luuuvs to eat and play.
We appreciate the professionalism of the staff and family of Albark Kennels and their continued focus on raising healthy, happy puppies!
I would recommend anyone looking for a beautiful experience of adding a “furr-baby” to your family look no further than Albark Kennels!!
My BEAUTIFUL Baby
I purchased my puppy, Kilani (aka Natasha) from you this past January. She just turned 6 months old on May 23rd. My husband and I just LOVE Kilani. She is beautiful and smart. Everyone who meets her, falls in love with her (mainly because of eyes, but also because of her personality.)
When we decided to get a dog, we spent endless hours searching for reputable breeders in Maryland. My sister, who lives in Pennsylvania, actually located Al-Bark Kennels and forwarded your information to me. I contacted Barbara (with several emails and tons of questions) in December, and she was very responsive. We wanted a medium-sized Goldendoodle. At the time, they had not posted any pictures of the medium F1 Goldendoodles, so I did not know they had a litter available. I put down my deposit and waited for the pictures to be put on the website.
Once the pictures were there, I knew immediately the puppy I wanted, but I was 4th in line to pick. We made the 3-hour drive to the kennel and saw the puppies in person. That was a WONDERFUL experience! After seeing each pup’s personality, I made my 4 choices. I was sooooo happy when I found out I got my first pick! We took advantage of the Hagerstown delivery option and met Barbara. We made our final payment, signed papers, and got Kilani. It only took about 7 minutes!
Kilani adjusted quickly. She was checked out from head to toe at our vet (no parasites). Kilani is now 37 pounds at 6 months old. She is well socialized, very intelligent, and hardly barks. Her parents are Nana and Rascal. If you have a pup from Nana and Rascal, please get in touch!
If you’re thinking about owning a Goldendoodle, I would highly recommend getting one from Al-Bark Kennels!
Puppy is doing great!
Cooper (formerly Kelton ) is doing great. He survived the New England winter and loved the snow and walks on the beach! One picture he is cheering on the pats for the superbowl game. He is 7 ½ months and weighs 60 lbs. and still growing. He just started puppy classes! His new thing is watching the birds. He is a great addition to the family!
Love of our life!
We got our Dylan a few years ago and he is honestly the best dog we have ever had. Thank you Albark Kennels for raising the cutest and healthiest puppies around. From the day we brought him home he has brought us nothing but laughter and happiness ❤️ He is truly the love of our life and can’t imagine our life without him!
Greetings from the Popik family!
Here is our sweet Elsa (formerly Tootsie), who is the sweetest dog on the planet. At 7 months old, she has captivated our family with her loving spirit and family-friendly demeanor. She is so gentle and sweet with our children, ages 4,7, and 8, and is a rockstar at her training classes. Already we can’t imagine our lives without her! Albark Kennels was wonderful to work with, and we highly recommend this breeder and their amazing dogs. Thank you!!!
Thank you AlBark!
Happy New Year to AlBark kennels!
I want to share our happiness and love of our amazing “doodles “ with you.
Our grandchildren were terrified of dogs. I realized this had to change and Sandy and Goldie did the trick! They are a true gift. We are blessed. Thank you AlBark! You provide the nurturing and love that these puppies need before going to their forever families.
This place is wonderful
This place is wonderful the family that lives there is so sweet. I recently just bought Wendi a blonde golden retriever puppy and she is already my new best friend. The dogs they breed there are really smart, Wendi will whine when she needs to use the bathroom and she’s only 8 weeks old. If I could give this place 10 stars I would! Very clean place and well ran. Definitely was worth the 4-hour drive. Thank you again for my new best friend you guys are awesome.
