There are many doodle breeders in Kentucky but we are so happy to have found D and D‘s Dandy Doodles. Darrell and Diane came recommended to us from our friends/neighbor who got their dog from them. We had never owned a dog but were so impressed with their dog, that we decided to take the leap into dog ownership. Our Aussiedoodle Oakley is the happiest, friendliest, social boy that you will ever meet. Potty training him was a breeze…there’s a method they use when the babies are with their mama…whatever they are doing, keep doing it, because it works. With so many breeders out there, it’s hard to know who to trust. I’m here to tell you that D and D are the real deal…they are trustworthy and love and care for these animals as their own until they find a forever home. They even rescued a dog for rehoming. That dog, Parker, joined our family recently and became Oakley’s sister. Be selective when looking to add a furry friend to your family…chose D and D, you won’t regret it!
After losing our Labradoodle two years ago, we finally decided it was time to find another puppy. I knew it would be a doodle of some kind and had recently seen photos of Aussiedoodles. We fell in love with everything about the breed. Next it was finding a reputable breeder. After an internet search we were blessed to find D and D's Dandy Doodles. Darrell was so responsive and a great communicator who was very attentive to our needs. When I told him I had allergies, he steered us away from an available puppy and told us to wait for an upcoming breeding of F1B's. Diane sent pictures and videos repeatedly so we could see our puppy's progress. We picked up Luna in mid-June and she has been an absolute dream-easy to train, easy to love. People stop us every time we are on a walk to tell us what a beautiful, friendly dog Luna is. She has a beautiful coat. Our groomer loves her too. Says she is one of the best puppies she's ever done. When we recently visited a new vet for her spaying, he commented on her wonderful bone structure, muscularity and what a great dog she was-another example of Darrell's and Diane's attention to their breeding practices. Thank you, Darrell and Diane! We couldn't have asked for a better puppy in every way. Life wouldn't be the same without her-she truly brings us such joy.

Sophia is doing great. We took her to our vet and he said “Sophia” was a great example of a wonderful Golden Doodle and he thought she had a perfect temperament and a good coat etc.So everything is great and she is adjusting fabulously to us & the kitties. Have a wonderful Christmas & thank you for “Sophia”

Miss Frankie is adjusting so well in her new home. She loves her big sister Myra and they're bonding so fast. Darrell and Diane are so great to work with. We always felt at ease with the whole process. I first met them when i picked up my friend's Aussiedoodle, Nash, from them in May. Within a month of meeting them and falling in love with Nash, I was on the phone with Darrell to put my deposit down. Since we brought Frankie home we have been so impressed with how smart she is. She has picked up potty training and word commands so fast. She is laid back but has a huge personality. Thanks for such a great puppy!
Frankie’s little personality is out of this world. She’s brought so much joy and laughter to our family. She’s smart as a whip and she‘s totally the life of the party.
Beaux is settling in. Thanks to your great tips, he’s mastering crate training! Every time he goes out, he relieves himself😊. Thank you for creating such a sweet boy! He’s scheduled to go to the vet on Wednesday for his first checkup.
I can not thank Darrell and Diane enough!! They have raised the sweetest little boy!! He is just perfect. He’s so healthy, smart & gorgeous! He is also super affectionate so I know he has been raised in a loving home. I can’t wait to watch him grow up. The adoption process was smooth & easy! They kept me updated with pictures & even let me come for a visit! I will be recommending them to
anyone looking for a puppy! Choosing them as your breeder will be one of the best decisions you make!!
Yesterday at the vet we got the BEST compliment!! The Technitian told us that he was the best doodle they have worked with and he is the sweetest dog!! Shows what responsible Breeding can do :))
Champ is doing great and is the best thing that's ever happened to me. I get compliments about Champ all the time. The people at the vet once kept him all day cause they wanted to play with him as long as possible. He is truly my best pal. I get compliments all the time and send people your all's way as much as possible. I couldn't ask for a better companion. I'll be watching your litters this year for a second one.
Hi Darrell! Just wanted to send over some more pics of Caesar and thank you guys again for the most loving, cuddly, adorable, smart, and funny pup! We adore him and everyone who meets him is so impressed by how well-behaved and calm he is for only 3 months. Don’t get me wrong, he definitely has his moments with the “zoomies” and loves to play tug-o-war and fetch, but he really has the ideal temperament for a dog. We seriously couldn’t have asked for a better blessing for our little family! I hope you and Diane are both well and that all of your dogs are doing well too.
One week ago I picked up my precious Mini Goldendoodle from our Breeder, Darrell and Diane (D & D’s Dandy Doodles). I have had numerous pets throughout my life, but recently retired and finally had the time to give a new puppy proper attention. Our experience with Darrell and Diane went far beyond what I could have ever expected. They showed unbelievable patience throughout the process. I changed my mind three times on the type/size/sex/looks/dog I wanted. I am sure they wanted to spend a little less time meeting my needs, but they only showed patience and love toward both us and the puppies. After comparing prices of this breed, I found their price to be very reasonable. Finally, we decided on a Mini Goldendoodle. They kept us posted with pictures and updates throughout the process and built our anticipation over the gestation period. The day finally came, the puppies were here. Darrell and Diane sent us beautiful pictures as the puppies grew. The day finally came to pick her up. Our puppy was perfectly groomed, and had that sweet new puppy smell. She was beautiful, healthy, and friendly from the minute we saw her. You could tell she was loved before she met us. Diane was exceptional in putting together a welcome gift bag to provide to us when we picked up little Lucy. We truely appreciate all the time, love, and work Darrell and Diane put into their puppies. And their sincere love and care they provide to these puppies are a true demonstration for the professional care and skills they demonstrate. I know I will cherish my little Lucy for years to come and will always regard Darrell and Diane as special breeders and friends.

We got Bear and Bergie from Darrell and Diane in the Spring of 2020, after visiting their lovely property and immaculate kennels. As the pups approach their first birthday, we could not be more pleased. They are bright dogs, who respond very well to training. They are terrific athletes - from 10+ mile hikes high in the Rockies to multiple walks and runs each day, they have yet not found anything beyond their physical abilities. Most importantly, they are incredibly loving dogs. Once they have had an opportunity to burn some calories, they like nothing more than to curl up on/around one of us or each other. They are very affectionate. In a nutshell, they are EXACTLY the dogs we wanted - and exactly the dogs Darrell and Diane said they would become. Thanks again for everything. I can't imagine our lives without these two.

When I got my puppy Zander from Diane and Darrell Adamson, I had no idea how much I would love him. He has filled a large void in my life. Darrell and Dianne were so gracious to keep him until I could get him, for which I am very grateful. They are wonderful people and consummate breeders! They treat all their puppies as their own. I highly recommend them! With one blue eye and one brown eye, Zander turns a lot of heads everywhere he goes. He is a ball of Blue Merle and white fur, making him a gorgeous boy!!!I feel very fortunate to have him!!He was a Godsend, for sure.
You just have no idea how much we love this baby! Her personality is over the top. My friends and family love her so much. They come by to visit her often and send her gifts. They literally beg me to let them have her. Thank you a million times over for her.
If you’re looking for an Aussidoodle, I highly recommend getting one from D and D’s Dandy Doodles. Darrell and Diane were very professional and responsive when I was on the hunt for a dog. We Face Timed on multiple occasions and he answered all my questions and concerns promptly. They would even send me videos of Milo every time I asked. I would highly recommend a pup from them as my experience with him has been great!
Now about my Aussidoodle: Milo has been a great companion for me. He’s funny, super active, and incredibly smart. He knows multiple commands: come, wait, leave it, hold it, get up, sit, down, and even knows some random commands like “go to your room,” “backyard,” “not yours,” and “go say hi!” He gets so much joy out of playtime and is a fantastic hiking companion - but he’ll also cozy up right next to me when it’s time for bed.
I honestly can’t imagine life without him. It’s been a joy to watch him grow up and I’m excited for all the adventures to come!
Thank you Darrell and Diane!
We spent a long time deciding on whether to get a dog. We lost our other dog 12 years earlier to old age. After much research through the internet, we determined an Aussiedoodle dog would best suit our lifestyle. This was confirmed once we ran into a gentleman with an Aussiedoodle at a local store. At this point we started our dog search. After looking into different breeders across the country, we arrived at D & D Dandy Doodles. We communicated with Diane and Darrell about our concerns and need for a dog. They were thoughtful, and took the time to answer all our concerns and questions. Diane even helped us decide on an F1B to fit our desire. This led us to Pixel, which we later renamed Shelby.Shelby had an immediate effect on us. Her energy and love lights up every where she goes. Shelby is excellent with our grandchildren and other dogs. We take her everywhere we are able to, and she normally turns into the main attraction wherever we are. Everyone falls in love with her and she quickly turns into the topic of conversation. The bottom line is she is adorable in every way.Diane and Darrell have also been awesome through our experience. They have always been there to answer questions or the just be a sounding board for any of our concerns. We couldn’t be happier with our experience with them, and our continued relationship. Especially for our adorable Shelby.

I saw an Aussiedoodle in Ohio who was the most beautiful and well-behaved dog. His human parents were walking him in their neighborhood and I couldn’t help but to approach them and ask about their dog. He was easily approachable and very well-mannered. My search was on for an Aussiedoodle!
I searched and searched for months on end but was hoping to find a breeder in Kentucky. Luck had it, someone referred me to D and D’s Dandy Doodles in Ewing, Kentucky. Not only were they in Kentucky but right next door to my hometown of Maysville!!
I contacted Darrell and Diane via their website and received an immediate response. That same day, I went to Ewing and met these wonderful, faith-based people. We instantly had a connection; like we’d known each other for years.
I met several puppies but my Waylon stood out the most. Was he the most rambunctious?? Nope. Did he come up to me wanting attention?? Nope. But that’s what drew me to him. I wanted to give him all the love I could. And that’s just what I’m doing.
Waylon has the sweetest personality and always keeps us on our toes. He has brought us so much joy and has such a big heart. It just shines through. Take a look for yourself and you’ll understand why. Can’t wait for the day to get another Aussiedoodle from Darrell and Diane as I know he or she will be just as great as my Waylon.

Tillie continues to be such a fun pup! She’s doing great with training - mastering heel, stay, sit, shake, down, spin, and going to her crate on command. And fetching like a champ! She loves squeaky toys and anything soft. She’s slowly learning to “leave it”. She sleeps in her crate from 11-6, putting herself to bed some nights! We adore this pup!
After looking for a year, finding Darrell and Diane was a blessing. They were very honest, professional, accommodating and fair to work with along with keeping me informed with pictures as the time approached to pick up at 7 weeks. Top notched breeders!River is an exceptionally smart puppy that has exceeded all my expectations. He has been very easy to train on the 7 commands and safe to say is now house broken! He is 12 weeks old. His temperament is friendly and loves playing with children and other dogs and has acclimated nicely to all the sounds in a home as well as outside of the home. It is my intention to work him in agility training and have him as a therapy dog.
A big thank you to D and D with your high standards in breeding such smart healthy dogs. He is a bundle of unconditional love and joy. He has been easy to train, which is every owners dream. His personality is chatty (he knows when I am about to go out and he begins talking to me), and he talks to me when he brings me a toy. He is fun, cuddly, playful and a lapdog for sure. He responds to commands and knows what is expected of him. Just have a treat in hand and he’s all yours! I look forward to many years of a loving constant companion. Who wouldn’t? I am so blessed we found each other. I absolutely love this dog. Thanks again.
