To Future Doodle Parents,
The process of finding and selecting a breeder to add a furry family member can be stressful. We’re excited to share our story of working with Providence Kennels. They have been a wonderful breeder to work with and we hope our experience provides solace as you make your decision.
Jill and Justin are the owners of Providence Kennels. Their family lives outside of Tulsa on a 10 acre farm and they have been raising doodles for years. We found them to be extremely communicative, respectful of our time, and willing to answer all questions we had. They treat their puppies with love and care. It’s comforting to see the puppies spend the first 8 weeks of their life in a loving environment. There are a few things that make Providence Kennels stand apart from other breeders we looked at.
First, Jill texted us pictures of the puppies every week. It was incredible to watch our girl grow week over week and we hadn’t even met her yet or decided on a name.
Second, the puppies go home microchipped with two rounds of vaccinations instead of one. This was impressive to us as this was not common with other breeders we spoke with.
Lastly, we loved being able to participate in pick your puppy day. We got the chance to snuggle with available puppies prior to deciding which one would be the best fur baby for our family.
Jill, Justin and their family are highly organized and take the business of delivering healthy beautiful puppies seriously. We would whole heartedly recommend Providence Kennels as a strong contender when evaluating breeders to add furry family members. We’ve had a wonderful experience and if we decide to add another furry member to our family, we will certainly be returning to Providence Kennels.
All the Best
“My girlfriend and I always wanted a goldendoodle and after extensive research we were fortunate to find Providence Kennels in Oklahoma. We live in Boston and were worried about having the puppy shipped during COVID, but their pet nanny service relieved all our stress knowing our pup Beau was accompanied on his journey home.
Justin and Jill were proactive in keeping us updated right up until the day he arrived. They even coordinated with me to ship the puppy a day earlier so I could surprise my girlfriend (now fiancée) with a proposal!
Beau is such a loving, intelligent, and most importantly healthy puppy! We highly recommend Providence Kennels!”
You have to be careful picking out the right dog for you or your family. We spent several months researching what breeders had a top tier program by the transparency of their operation and precautions they put forth to secure great genetics in their breeds. We were fortunate to have a close friend who is a first class breeder of labradoodles and bernadoodles in the northern part of the US. Every kennel I suggested to her to look at to help me decide had problems, some many problems I would have overlooked. One stood out with her that she’d herself have no problem doing business with that was “Providence Kennels”. That alone got us deeply interested. Secondly, you won’t meet a family that puts forth every effort that you leave with the healthiest pup possible. The Murray family is one of a kind, go meet them and talk with them. From the kids to the parents you’ll quickly see a loving, patriotic all American family that have a deep love for the care of animals. We had made our mind up but coincidentally ran into an owner and adult dog purchased from the Murrays. I don’t remember the guys name but he was spot on with exactly what we observed on our visits to Providence Kennels. I told myself I’d never spend that kind of money for a dog, honestly after going thru the process and knowing what you get, I’d paid double. Don’t waste your time looking anywhere else, this is where your dog is coming from!!!
I had the absolute best experience using Providence Kennels for my Labradoodle. This experience never once felt like the typical breeder experience where everything is just about money, Jill actually feels like a friend now. Throughout the process I received many photo and video updates along with very detailed instructions and recommendations from Providence Kennels along the way. One of the things that I loved most about them is that this was more of a family venture than a business. Their family all took extremely good care of my sweet Ruger along with his nine brothers and sisters at their beautiful home on a ton of land. They also took the time to ensure the puppies were kept away from anything that could make them sick, even on pick up day. My puppy is extremely happy, well fed, well cared for and very well tempered. I have already recommended Providence Kennels to several friends and family members and will be back if I ever need another! If you are thinking about a labradoodle, highly recommend from the Murray’s, they even let you visit your puppy at 6 weeks which is almost unheard of these days! THANK YOU!

After doing extensive research online, we knew we wanted to get a puppy from Providence Kennels. The Murrays are so knowledgeable and respond promptly to phone calls, emails and texts. After the litter was born, we received photos and videos of the puppies each week. We were planning to go to puppy pick day, but we decided we didn't need to after receiving so many photos, videos and talking to Jill on the phone about the temperament of the puppies. The Murrays take amazing care of all of their dogs as they are their pets. They have a beautiful property where the puppies can play. Our labradoodle puppy has brought our family so much joy and has the absolute sweetest disposition. I would 100% recommend Providence Kennels!
Our experience with Providence Kennels was fantastic! Not only were they organized, super fast to respond, encouraging and enthusiastic, but you can tell they really care about their puppies! We loved the pictures and videos along the way to see how the puppies were growing, every single one of them was adorable. We also loved seeing the pictures of all of their dogs, including our puppies parents pictures and learning about their personalities. I felt very confident that our puppy was getting the best care before it was able to join our family. We live out of state, and Providence Kennels made it so easy to pick our puppy and organize his travel. We are so excited for the newest member to join us.
We highly recommend Providence Kennels to anyone and everyone looking to buy a Goldendoodle! Justin and Jill are raising the best Goldendoodle pups around from our visits to other kennels and research we have done. They truly care about their dogs and most of all they are a God loving family. From the first time talking with Justin on the phone about their dogs, he was easy to talk with on the phone and he answered all our questions. He made us feel comfortable about choosing them for our adoption. Jill was wonderful too. She sent us weekly pics and updates on the puppies. Then, we visited and meet the Murray family at their place in OK to pick out our puppy - Dude. When we arrived, we knew that we chose the right place to adopt a puppy. The family was out with the puppies playing with them. It was clean and nice, and we knew the dogs and puppies were well taken care of which was reassuring. Justin and Jill took the time with us to make sure we got the perfect puppy for our family. Our experience with them was nothing but exceptional! If we purchase another Goldendoodle puppy, they will be our only choice.
Thank you for everything!
We bought our puppy from Providence Kennels on June 2, 2020. With this being our first puppy we were nervous about the process. Not only my was it our first time purchasing a puppy, it was our first time purchasing a puppy in the middle of a pandemic (Covid-19). We wanted to make sure we went with one of the best breeders and had all the information we needed to know before our purchase. I must say Jill and Justin made the process so easy! They were always available and more than willing to answer any questions that we had. I spoke with other breeders before Providence Kennels and none compared. This process has been enjoyable and stress free. All communication has remained very consistent. They kept us informed along the way including sending us pictures as our fur baby grew. I don’t think we ever had to ask a question without them already addressing it first. This breeder will always be my number 1 choice! Jill and Justin are very friendly, and we wouldn’t have wanted to do business with anyone else. We are so excited that it is finally time to bring our fur baby and home! He is going to be a great addition to our family! If you are looking for a Goldendoodle, and want to make sure you are getting not only great customer service but the best puppy for you and your family; you will not go wrong with Providence Kennels! Thank you Jill and Justin for being so kind to us and helping us make the perfect purchase for our family!
Our family has been so impressed with the Murrays - from my first visit to their professional website (well organized and complete with the highest quality dog photos!), to my initial phone call to inquire about availability and where they answered myriad questions for me, there was no ‘second choice’ breeder for us to consider. Providence Kennels was the right, best and only choice!
Once our litter had arrived, it was so fun to receive update photos each week. For puppy pick day, they provided excellent directions (or online options if you preferred not to visit in person) and shoe booties for us to wear to keep the puppies safe.
You can tell this is a family run operation in the best possible ways - knowing they have kids of various ages made us confident our puppy would be well socialized to join our three year old son at home. Then being on site, we saw first hand how everyone helps and is involved.
We remain impressed and are eagerly waiting to provide our new pup a home as loving as Providence Kennels!
Our family had an amazing experience with Jill and Providence Kennels! They were extremely helpful and knowledgeable in helping us find the right fit for our family of five. Throughout the process, they would keep us updated with beautiful pictures and videos of our future pup. They went above and beyond to make the experience exceptional for our family and we couldn’t be more grateful!
The first thing that caught my eye about Providence Kennels was their very informative website about the most adorable dogs!! Justin and Jill were so patient with me and all of the questions I had about their dogs which helped us to make a decision on the perfect dog for our family! Jill was great when we went to meet our sweet Bentley for the first time and the next several weeks updated us with pictures and videos. I would highly recommend Providence Kennels, they go above and beyond to keep your puppy healthy and very loved until they go to their forever home!! If we get another goldendoodle we will definitely get one from Justin and Jill.
Providence Kennels has been so great to work with! I spoke with them over the phone before putting my deposit down. They answered about 30 questions I had asked, and never once seemed annoyed. The gentleman walked me through submitting my deposit. This company has made the process of getting my puppy so easy, and they walked me through every step of the process. They even uploaded videos and pictures of my puppy so I could watch her grow, as I was unable to visit her while living so far away. Jill is who I spoke with the most and she has been so great at responding to my emails in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Providence Kennels for anyone looking to get a puppy, they make it such a fun experience.
I would like to Providence Kennels for providing top notch customer service. When I contact Providence Kennels I spoke with Justin (breeder) I described exactly what I was looking for. Justin stated the website provides photos of the mom, dad and what the puppy would look like when they are grown. I love they provided photos of what the puppies would look like when they are grown up. I immediately placed a deposit. I highly recommend Providence Kennels.
When my family and I decided our family was in need of a fur child, we took our time to look at many different breeder/adoption choices. Providence Kennels was the first place that truly felt like home, and there is no better place to find a fur child! Jill was extremely personable, passionate, and informative! Something about her words made you feel how well the puppies are cared for! Educated and passionate are the best words to describe Providence Kennels!
My husband and I searched around for the right Labradoodle puppy and, we were very blessed to find Providence Kennels. Their web site was very efficient. We found detailed information about the family business, and the puppy buying process. Mr. Murray contacted me the very next morning after I submitted an inquiry via their web site. Mr. Murray was kind, and answered all my questions.
