Things have been happening over here :) Ginger delivered her puppies a few days late, and Daisy a few days early! Ginger had 5 beautiful, healthy pups (3 female, 2 male) and Daisy had 7 (6 female and 1 male)! We are reaching out to everyone on the waitlist. Please confirm your interest within 72 hours of this email. We will then invite puppy parents to a private Facebook group for almost-daily photo and video updates of their progress. You will be able to see their development, weights, biosensor training, etc. Once confirmed, you may choose your puppy at any time. The non-refundable $500 deposit will be due upon choosing. Start thinking of a name! We will begin calling your puppy by name when you choose one. Feel free to adopt siblings while you have the opportunity. These pups are going to be awesome. Your spot on the list allows for multiple fur babies. I have included photos of parents and pups. Many, many more to come!
Both litters have been sired by my absolute favorite mini goldendoodle, Bentley. You can meet him below. Bentley is a large mini (biggest of his litter) at nearly 40 lbs. Ginger and Daisy are 50 lbs. These pups will probably fall somewhere between 40 and 50, though they may be smaller. Because we expect small standard instead of true minis, we will be charging a lower adoption fee of $3000. You will not need to sign a contract or submit a deposit until you choose a puppy.
Welcome to Hidden Berry Doodles
We Breed Family-Raised Goldendoodles on the Big Island of Hawaii
Currently offering minis! See below for upcoming litters.
We are a couple of healthcare professionals raising 4 kids and 3 doodles somewhere between our house in town and our 5-acre farm in South Kona. We love the simple life. Our breeding females are our family pets. They are in on everything: homeschool, recess, adventures, and camping trips. They have been dressed up as superheroes and princesses, tucked in with blankets, and snuggled a bit excessively :) We are proudly associated with Laurelwood Doodles (https://www.laurelwooddoodles.com/about.html). Ginger and Daisy came to us as guardian pets through their wonderful breeding program, and we are happy to offer puppies to their customers. We offer the same early development program so you enjoy a happy, well-adjusted addition to your family.
I can personally attest to the gentle, intuitive spirit of our doodles. They have been submissive, supportive, and tolerant of all of our children (the sweetest when we introduced the new baby), cats, and friends. I watch as they visibly adjust their energy to suit each situation. It really is amazing. I highly recommend goldendoodles to anyone looking for a furry best friend for an individual or the whole family! Our pups offer minimal shedding and are easily trained. Ginger and Daisy are graduates of obedience and good citizen training programs. If you are looking for the friendliness and loyalty of a golden retriever, with the intelligence and low-shedding characteristics of a poodle, these pups are for you!
Meet Our Breeding Females
Ginger is a 4-year-old F1 goldendoodle (50% golden retriever and 50% poodle). She is extremely sweet, loyal, and intelligent. Ginger has given birth to 3 beautiful litters of puppies. Daisy is one of them :) Ginger will be available for 2 more litters before gracefully retiring and taking up her position as babysitter and recess monitor. Ginger is an all-around pleasure and beloved member of the family. She is fun-loving and gentle.
Daisy is a 2-year-old F1B goldendoodle (25% golden retriever and 75% poodle). She is extremely intelligent and trainable. Daisy loves to play and has unending patience for puppies, kids, and cats. She tolerates everything with a calm energy and a smile on her face. If someone is getting attention, she wants to be in on it.
He is our favorite mini goldendoodle and sire of all upcoming litters. Bentley is extremely well tempered and easy to train. He's a sweetheart and joy to have around.

How We Give Your Puppy a Great Start
Supporting Healthy Development
Ginger and Daisy are monitored for healthy weight leading into their pregnancies. Throughout, they have free access to food. We use puppy food to provide more calorie-dense meals. They also receive prenatal vitamins each day. As always, they are protected from environmental toxins. We also limit their contact with visitors. As far as activity and exercise, we let them take the lead. So far, they always choose to run and play :)
Nutrition and Hygiene
Supporting Healthy Growth
We feed Ginger and Daisy Hill's Science Diet because we appreciate high-quality nutrition. Your puppy will be nursing from mom and monitored regularly to ensure growth is optimal. We will use goat milk to wean them off of mom and onto kibble. When it is time to go home, they will have transitioned to kibble.
Early Development Program with Biosensor Training
Supporting Healthy Behavior
From their first days of life, your puppy will be exposed to biosensor training (which can promote increased tolerance to stress, stronger immune systems, stronger heart rates and breathing rates, stronger nervous systems, and better and more consistent temperaments) and calming audio (used to desensitize them to sounds such as thunderstorms and fireworks). We will also begin using basic commands and training with your puppy to encourage sitting, coming when called, and easy grooming.
A Family Environment
Supporting Healthy Socialization
From the moment they are born, your puppy has a family. They will be talked to, held, played with, read to, snuggled, and trained by our entire family. They will always be with their mom, siblings, and the 6 of us. When they are ready to go home, they will be ready to join your family :)
Photos and Videos for Adoptive Family
Supporting Healthy Attachment
We know how hard it is to wait for that new member of the family! Trust me, I have very little patience when it comes to a new family member :) We will bridge the gap by providing you with plenty of photos and videos. You will be invited to a Facebook group for your litter. By the time you pick your puppy up, you will have already bonded! We encourage you to name them early so we can use their forever name while training.
Vet Check, Deworming, and 1st Vaccines
Supporting Physical Health
Our dogs have undergone DNA testing and been assessed for hip problems. They are healthy and up to date with vaccines. Before going home, your puppy will be dewormed, receive their first vaccines, and visit our veterinarian for an initial assessment. These records will be provided to you. We do not microchip because the gauge of the needle is so big. We recommend waiting until 4 months of age.
