Sweetest Puppy!

Disco (AKA Jethro) is now 12 weeks old. He has the sweetest personality and is doing great with house training. We had no issues with sleeping in his crate from night one. Even though it has only been a short time, we can’t imagine life without him.

So cute So funny.

Baxter has for sure been a joy to have! He is so funny to watch in his puppy stage and brings joy to everyone who sees him! It doesn’t hurt that he is so cute too, he’s full of energy and the sweetest puppy to love on! Leroy made the whole process very easy from payments to shipping he made everything as simple as can be. Thank you!

Great Puppies with Sweetest Attitude

We are expecting a baby in a couple months and wanted puppies for our daughter to play with when our baby is born. We wanted a smart breed that is hypoallergenic with a good attitude. We originally got one poodle but had to go back for his brother so they can play together and have puppy company. It was a great decision to get two because they burn all their energy playing. They were potty trained in a couple weeks and had very few accidents. The dogs are very healthy and we are very happy with them, their puppy breath and their gentle licks on the face. I can tell these dogs come from a great line holding their head high with perfect posture and are the most cuddly dogs I have seen.

Professional Breeder

Thank you so much for your professionalism and kindness. We purchased Phetta in February and we have had nothing but positive responses from both canine professionals & simple admires like myself.
The vet we use told us on our first visit that Phetta was the most well behaved puppy she had seen in her more than 10 years in the business.
Keep in mind this was prior to any obedience courses or training.

My husband, Curtis, was searching for a wedding present for me when he came across Gold Star Family Poodles online. He immediately reached out and had been in contact with Leroy in regards to Peaches. Leroy was so awesome and answered any questions my husband had. My husband explained how easy the process was the entire time. We got back from our honeymoon and picked up peaches the next day from LAX Delta Cargo. She came with her crate, some food and all of her documentation we needed. Peaches, who is now named Harlie, is the absolute best dog in the world. She is sooo loving and just the cutest pup. Not to mention she’s a momma’s girl so that just completely melts my heart even more. She is hands down the best present ever! Makes it even more special she was my wedding gift from my husband and I found out about her the morning of our wedding. So adorable!! We love her so much and can’t thank Leroy enough for all his help. We recommend Gold Star Family Poodles to anyone who asks!

I truly appreciated purchasing a healthy and well balanced pup from Leroy Schlabach. I was seeking a St. Poodle pup to be a companion for K9 therapy in nursing homes. To find the right pup I implemented some of the Volhard aptitude test. Leroy was supportive in my requests and the puppy passed. She is friendly with strangers, has good attention, a sweet personality and totally adorable. I am very pleased with the way Leroy has raised the puppies and highly recommend him as a reputable breeder. Susan Havens

The best experience!

The best experience!

I got my wonderful puppy on May 1st. I had the best experience with Leroy. Seeing that I’m all the way in Pennsylvania he was kind enough to hold on to my boy until I was able to drive out and get him. So far I’ve noticed my puppy has an amazing temperament which is wonderful because he is my service dog prospect. Leroy was very kind and helpful and extremely patient with me and my 1,000 questions. I would definitely get another poodle puppy from Leroy in the future! Thank you Leroy!

I just got my first poodle and the man (Leroy) who sold us Jane was extremely helpful and just beyond kind. Such a refreshing sight to see just how great people still are. Very knowledgeable and let my parents really know all they’d have to deal with, when having a pup! Thank you, would definitely come back for a second pup from you all. Best experience!!!

Great addition to our family.

Maggie is a 10 month old Goldendoodle. We drove 3 hours from Cincinnati to get her in November of 2021 after her litter was born in September. She has turned into such a loving and fun family dog. She is great with the kids and is full of energy. She is just a happy dog all the time and is really smart. She is the most beautiful pup we have owned and we continually get compliments on her hair and her lovable face. So happy we chose Gold Star Family Poodles when selecting the newest member of our family!

Great addition to our family.

Wonderful addition

The breeder was very warm and accommodating as my wife and I had a busy weekday schedule and were unable to handle delivery. We drove down from Philadelphia PA to Ohio and were immediately greeted by the breeder and Oakley who was ready to play at first meet. The ride home was long and he was initially uncomfortable but did incredibly well. It took about 3 days for him to really acclimate to his new environment but he immediately did well with the family. He and his new big sister, Harper, get along wonderfully. If we ever decide to get another pup, we would make the drive back down in a heartbeat. All paperwork and an initial supply of food was provided as well as his initial shot record. Thanks again Leroy!!

Leroy was extremely patient with assisting us in trying to find the right puppy for our family. I explained to Leroy what we were looking for in a puppy and he went above and beyond talking to us, texting, emailing pictures of puppy, past litters and anything else that would help with our decision. Leroy is very passionate about his breeding business and puts a lot of time and effort into making sure his puppies are matched with the right family. He definitely set the bar high when dealing with other breeders. Leroy isn’t pushy, he cares about his customers and it’s really important to him that each of his customers are satisfied with the puppy they’ve chosen. I highly recommended Gold Star Family Poodles to anyone looking for quality Standard Poodles. Working with Leroy was a Blessing and the best experience for us.

Leroy, I’ve wanted to contact you for a long time but just keep forgetting to do it. Our puppy that we bought from you back in March is WONDERFUL!!!
The first few months were challenging as we hadn’t dealt with a puppy in 14 years but once we got him trained at about 5 months he’s a different dog. He’s a beautiful GoldenDoodle and so many people compliment his good looks. He’s great with our 9 grandkids and has been a delight most of the time. He still of course has a lot of puppy behavior but is responding to the training commands. Just wanted you to know !!

A great breeder, and amazing quality bloodlines

Wanted to wait until Winston here was about 5 or 6 months to leave a review, I can’t say enough about Leroy, great guy, extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
So we always wanted a red standard, and my girlfriend (future wife) sent me a link to Gold Star right before Christmas 2019, kinda played around with the idea for a while seeing how we already had a little rat terrier, and ended up deciding that a new addition would be a great Christmas present. At the time they only had a couple males left out of the litter, so after a phonecall we jumped in the car and drove down from Cleveland Ohio to check some of them out. I should mention, that she had already kinda fell in love with this little guy from his picture, lol, and when we got there Leroy was a pleasure to work with, he ran us through his program, answered any questions, and even introduced us to all the parents. I can safely say that the experience was great, and he even followed up with us a couple times via phonecalls to ask how everybody was getting on! As far as our (little?) Winston, everybody that sees this little guy immediately falls in love with him, his temperament is amazing, he’s smart as a whip, and gets along great with our little spoiled brat of a rat terrier, lol..
We have a mobile family vet that we’ve used for years, and she raves about his health and temperament, his health has been IMPECCABLE, and I can’t stress this enough. If you’re on the fence, don’t be, Leroy is a great guy, these dogs and their parents are raised right alongside his loving family as advertised, I can attest to this because I met the parents personally, so I’m kinda taken aback, and even a little angered by the guy that left a bad review. I can testify that that guy that left the bad review has zero clue what he’s talking about.. anyway, thanks Leroy, we appreciate the great experience, all the help and input, and although we’re probably done at two doggo’s in this household, if we ever get the bug again, we absolutely will be back, lol. I can’t recommend this breeder enough to anyone interested

The best puppy EVER!!

The best puppy EVER!!

I’am 61 years old and have dogs all my life. My black lab was 14 years old and sadly she got cancer and I had to put her down. After much research to find the most intelligent dog, hypoallergic and no shedding, poodles always were at the top of the list. I’ve had all kinds of dogs but never a poodle and never much cared for the breed however I couldn’t argue with my research. I looked at many poodle puppies with other breeders but just couldn’t find one I like until I found Gold Star Family Poodles. The first time I saw my little Cecelia (renamed to Lydia, meaning “whisper of God”) I fell in love with her. Leroy was amazing to work with and made all the travel arrangements. She flew from Ohio to Florida without any problems at all. The trip was seamless and Lydia was calm cool and collected when I picked her up at the airport. She was the most beautiful peaceful puppy I have ever seen. That is a true testament to this breeder. It was an instant connection when our eyes meet, she captured my heart. She was about 9 weeks old when I got her and I now 3 months old. I am amazed at how much she has learned in just 3 short weeks. She learns extremely quickly and so eager to please. Loves play time, socializing and sleeping. She is the most well adjusted puppy I have every had. You can rest assured that this breeder knows what they are doing and produce perfectly balanced healthy pups. I am so happy she is in my life, she is a true companion! Kelly

She is also my favorite snuggle bug because she is super soft. We had a great experience in working with Leroy from Gold Star Family Poodles to get Como from Ohio to South Dakota. They were very helpful.

We got our precious pup back in June and we love her so much! We were looking to get our Lab a friend and now they are inseparable. Before bringing her home, Leroy was great communicating back and forth before hand and even sent me a video of her playing which I instantly fell in love with. Overall everything was a great experience and Leroy was very professional. Thank you so much!

He trained easily and is so willing to please. As a pup still very playful and lots of energy . He is so gentle with other dogs and socialized easily. He’s good with children and all our grandchildren love him. We were very happy with Leroys facility and his willingness to answer all my questions.
