The Happy Woofer has a very clean facilty which all the dogs are well taken care of and the health warranty, that comes with every purchased dog, gives the customer full satisfaction of the puppy you take home. The breeders and groomer at the Happy Woofer are dedicated to their animals, and love each and everyone of them. I adopted a Japeke named Chloe and I couldn't have asked for a better puppy. She is in great health condition and I give full credit to the people at Happy Woofer who have taken care of all their puppies since day one. Now after adopting an adorable little girl have recommended the Happy Woofer to many people located in and around the Harrington aera. Thank you Happy Woofer !

What a great kennel! You keep everything very clean and my poodle is doing great. We named him "Buddy" and he is fitting in very nicely with my lab! Thanks for everything and I will be sure to recommend you to my friends!

This is a wonderful place! In Dec. I purchased my new baby a pomeranian "Phoebe". Krista, Diane, and Mike were superb. Krista made sure she answered all my questions even days after we left. She didn't get annoyed by my millions of emails I sent her, she answered all of them w/ patience and willingness. The place was clean, the dogs were well kept, happy and friendly. My little guy has the best personality and has adjusted very well to his home and surroundings. He is such a pleasure to have. I thank everyone at M&D for taking such good care of him and the rest of the crew. Krista called me a day or so later to check on him and how he is doing. That right there showed me that she cared not about a buck but about the well being of the animals. I love this place and I would recommend it to anyone 100x more!!

I had been watching your website for a year, looking for the perfect addition to my family. When I saw that you had an upcoming litter of Schnoodles, I was overjoyed, and afraid that I would miss reserving one in time, since your puppies seem to get taken quickly (!) I emailed you, and you reserved one for me in advance, and then let me know when they were on the site to see.

I went to visit when they were 5 weeks old, and was impressed with the cleanliness of your kennel and the attention given to each dog and puppy. You knew them all by name, and tailored the food to each one…and that’s saying a lot, because there were a number of puppies who had been born in the past few months. I could tell how much you loved the dogs by the lovely Jack Russell that you adopted and gave a good life to, despite his infirmities.

The puppy I eventually brought home, Pixie, was healthy, well socialized and almost completely pee-pad trained at 8 weeks. She got a clean bill of health at the vet and continues to thrive. It’s especially nice that she accepts having her feet played with and her hair brushed or cut without a fuss. She has a lot of personality, learns things quickly, and has become the perfect addition to our family. She bonded with me and the other dogs immediately, and is a tough yet respectful dog, just what I would expect in a Schnoodle; she has the perfect mix of terrier and lover.

I have told many people about your kennel, and hope to be a customer again in the future. Thanks for producing such a great puppy!

Dear Diane,

My son and I want to take a few minutes to thank you so much for our new little Miniature Schnauzer, Archie. He is a joy and is exactly as you described to us. We had visited a couple of kennels and were disappointed at their cleanliness, their staff, and the overall "sadness" of the puppies. Your facility was spotless, the puppies were clean and very well socialized. We were also impressed with the knowledge of your staff, they knew each and every puppy by name. Our vet has assured us that Archie is in perfect health and obviously was well cared for. We have recommended The Happy Woofer to a couple of our friends and will continue to do so. Thank you so much again.

P.S. When buying some food and toys at Archie at Pet Smart the cashier was also familiar with your kennel and had only good things to say.

Most Sincerely,
Debra and Nathan

I have been very pleased with my experience with the Happy Woofer. I was a little concerned about buying a puppy that I found on the internet. But it turned out to be a positive experience. I believe that all of the dogs I saw there were loved and well cared for. As for my puppy Yorkie-Poo (Pickles) now Kacy I couldn’t be happier. He is adorable, I had the local Vet check him out the day after I got him and all was OK. Puppy is in good health. Diane is responsive to any follow-up questions and I have already referred others to their kennel. It is obvious that he has been well socialized. He is comfortable with all of the humans he has met and loves playing with other dogs. All in all I would say we are a happy pair Kacy and me.

Good Morning Diane,
I have to say the "Happy Woofer" was one of the cleanest kennel's I've seen from New Jersey to Delaware. Kate is such an asset to your organization, she was very knowledgeable about the puppies.  I saw the Love this kennel gives to the puppies and expecting mom's. I felt all my questions were answered by Kate and if she didn't have the answer @ the time I presented the question, she got back to me with the answer in a timely manner. I have to say my family LOVES our Min Pin "Rusty". I pray that the "Happy Woofer" continue to be one of the best kennels around and keep up the love and care you provide to your animals.
Happy New Year!!!!

Hi Diane,
Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our new addition Jacey (formerly Tessa a Yorkie). I have never had such a small dog and I am glad we had our many conversations on their care. I want to thank you and the staff. Your kennel is clean and well run and that makes all the difference in a happy, healthy dog. Our visit their when Jacey was a month old made my daughter's day. She would have had me adopt more than one!
The first two weeks have been alot of work, but, Jacey is adjusting well....and so are we. The vet visit was great. She is healthy and getting bigger....a great big 2 lbs!
Thanks so much,
The Scruggs Family

We love our 2 female poodle puppies, Brandi & Mia. We could not have asked for any better personalities. They get along great. It is so enjoyable watching them together. They are never too far apart. They sleep in the same crate at night & for their naps. We have them on a schedule as though they were babies, which they are to us. Brandi, who is alot smaller, likes to sleep on David's shoulder, while Mia likes to lay in his lap. We got them rawhide sticks [cut in half] right away to chew on, which keeps them from chewing on the wrong things.They can go thru one a day. Of course they both always want the same stick. They are eating hard food with no problem. They love the outdoors, & took to using the potty outside right away..Its just getting them out there at the right time.They can be rather mischievous, which keeps us on our toes. We are so happy we decided on 2 puppies, & even happier we found you at the Happy Woofer. We will be always be grateful to my friend for directing us to your website. Once we selected our poodles, it was so nice to be able to visit weekly, before they came home. We have also liked being able to communicate with you by e-mail since settling in. Now, if we can just get them serious about potty training...See you soon for a visit..


Milford, DE
Hi Diane,
Well there is so much I am happy to share with you. For starters your welcoming personality gave me the incentive to drive two hours to meet my Coco the first day I spoke to you. Once I got to your establishment I was so amazed with the little staff you have on how clean and welcoming it was from the point of walking in to the dog homes area. All the dogs are so well cared for and you can tell how much you and your husband pour your souls into what you do. You are a great group of people and I am truly grateful to you all for the most important reason--you introduced me to my baby Coco Chanel --who now weighs 2 pounds-- and is the cutest shorkie on the east coast. If we decide to add to our family in the future I will be knocking at your door. Thanks again.


Pennsauken, NJ

We could not be more pleased The Happy Woofer. Every part of this purchase was perfect. Kate is this companies biggest asset, from our first contact with her to walking out the door with our perfect puppy. She cares about all the puppies, dogs as if they were her kids. She was perfect! The whole operation, well kept "clean" kennels , puppies, dogs and personnel, "OUTSTANDING". We are so pleased with our little baby. He is already house trained and growing like a weed.


Lewes, DE

When we finally decided to add a pug to our family we were thrilled to find that the Happy Woofer had pugs that would be ready to go to their new homes in just a few months. Mike and Diane were friendly and happy to answer any questions we had as well as letting us visit out new puppy and her parents whenever we liked. When we picked up our new pug we were given a great binder of information along with a good amount of the Beaverdam Food that our puppy was used to eating.

Since we brought Pumpkin home she has been the happiest, sweetest, most easily trained dog I could have imagined. We love the new addition to our family. Thank you Happy Woofer.

If anyone is looking for a furry friend to be a part of their family, well you have found the right breeder "The Happy Woofer". From the start when I emailed them regarding a Shih Tzu pup "Bug" (his name is now Dunkin) I felt and knew I was dealing with a very professional breeder. When we arrived we met with Katie, Diane and Mike and we felt we were visiting with old friends. The kennel is kept very clean and well maintained. The animals were all very excited to see us and gave us a grand welcome to The Happy Woofer!! Katie gave us time to decided on what pup we wanted to take home. . . it was a very difficult decision. We really wanted to take them all home!! After a period of time, we decided to take "Bug" (Dunkin) home and to be a part of our family. Our other furry family member "Lola" (rescue spaniel mix) thinks she is the mother of Dunkin!! Lola is showing the ropes to Dunkin and working on his manners!! Our first visit to the Vet went well. . . the Vet stated Dunkin was in good health and was a very healthy Shih Tzu. I would recommend The Happy Woofer to anyone looking for a furry friend!!


Frankford, DE

We could not be happier with our beautiful, tiny Morkie, Piper (Krystal). She is absolutely gorgeous and has the best personality ever! She just makes us laugh every single day. When we arrived at the Happy Woofer, we were greeted by Diane's grandson, who led us to the kennel. There, we were met by Diane and her granddaughter. Piper just had a bath and was running around the grooming room. It was love at first sight! After only about an hour doing paperwork, we were on our way home with our girl. Diane answered every question we had, and we felt very confident we were adopting a well-socialized, playful 8-week-old puppy. She went to the vet the very next day and received a clean bill of health, weighing in at 1 pound, 11 ounces. Our 6-year-old Bichon, Charlie, loves her already, and they play together very well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Happy Woofer to anyone in search of a puppy. Diane is definitely in love with all her dogs, and her dedication to their well-being is top notch. We just love our Piper, who has become my shadow. I believe she's happy, and we're over the moon. Thanks, Diane, for being such a responsible breeder.

Dear Diane and Samantha,

I have wanted to contact you for some time, each day keeps getting better and better.  Our schnoodle puppy (formally Ruthie) is a dream come true.  She is so happy and she brings such joy to our lives.   I really feel Sophie has saved my life!   My mother and sister have brightened up too.

Sophie has the best disposition, she is inquisitive, playful, sweet and a little clown.  She is very smart, knows to 'sit', give her paw, she's house trained and her groomer says, Sophie is a groomer's dream',

I am sending you two pictures.  The first one was taken right after Sophie came to live with us (with my god-daughter's baby) and one taken last week after her first haircut.  Oh my goodnes, she is soooooooo darn cute!!!

We are all so grateful to your kindness.  Please take care of yourself and keep up the good work!

Fondly, Debbie Thomas

Hi All,...I would love to send you a picture of our puppies we got from you...I'm hoping to attach a picture of our basset and our min pin we got from you last year...Droopy is the basset and Angel is our min pin...they are truly the best of friends...and are the best dogs one could ask for... they are the best dogs ever...

Christy Schulze

awww Diane, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!   I'm so excited to have these.  I think my Gemma got the best traits from both of them (of course I'm extremely biased hahaha). She might be just a wee bit spoiled, but that's ok. She's the little girl I never had! Trust me, I've been working the husband for another, so far no luck. As soon as I get the green light, you'll be seeing me again!

We had the cutest birthday photo shoot for her, on her 2nd birthday. I've put the pictures on here for you, so 1. I can show her off to you (lol) and 2. So you can see what a gorgeous girl your parent dogs, had. The one in the orange bow is Feb, so she was 22 months & the ROCK STAR and BIRTHDAY PRINCESS are from April 20th, her actual 2nd birthday.  I've attached them full size so you could have them, as well as put them on the mail.  I think you'll enjoy them!!

I don't think I could have ever allowed Gemma to have puppies because I wouldn't be able to sell them. I'm sure you found amazing homes for her parents, so hopefully they're relaxing & enjoying the simple life  🙂

Again, many thanks for the parent pictures! (and if you run across any more, feel free to send them, anytime)

Trisha & Gemma  xoxoxo

Just wanted to send you new pics of our yorkipoos. Chief (from Woody and Rosie) is a handsome little blonde guy now who is always ready for his picture to be taken. Big sister, Chloe (from Midnight and Woody) doesn't care for the camera too much! Both are so precious to our entire family. Everyone adores and spoils them.  They are both so well behaved and super smart! We can't believe how amazing the two of them are. Thank you so much for our forever puppies!!!! They were well worth the drive.  When we are ready for a third, we will definitely be back!

Hi Diane,

Our little Zoey is such a joy!  She is about 5 lbs and adorable!  Everywhere we go someone asks us what kind of dog she is and where we got her.  Hopefully you have been getting lots of calls, or at least website hits!

This was the day she discovered she could jump on the couch…
I think she looks very proud of herself.

Her color is still changing. Zoey is a bundle of energy and keeps Bob and I on our toes.  Now that we have nice weather she is enjoying long walks around the neighborhood.  I am amazed at how far she can go and not get tired.  Zoey is also a lov

e-bug and when the day is done she loves nothing more than to lay on Bob’s or my lap while we watch tv.

Baskets of Thanks for our Little Girl,

Hi Diane!
This is Evelyn - my boyfriend and I got our corgi from you last spring. Today is Lily's first birthday so I just wanted to write and update you about her. She is doing great! She is old enough now that we can leave her out of her crate when we go to work and she behaves herself. We were lucky and never really had any chewing issues with her! She is a fantastic dog. She is so happy and friendly all the time and we both look forward to spending time with her. I attached a picture I took of her this morning so you can see how big she has gotten! Even though she isn't a puppy anymore I think she is still the cutest dog ever.

Hope you are doing well!   -- Evelyn

Here is a new picture for you.  Tucker is with our Rottie, Rocket.  They ar great friends.  Tucker likes to use him as a jungle gym.  He jumps on his back and and head all the time.  Here he standing on Rocket's side.  They are so fun to watch!   I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Have a great day!

Hi Diane,

We must apologize for not sending this email sooner,but things got a bit crazy around here:) We wanted to thank you for the professional service that The Happy Woofer gave us and  for all your support starting from the time of our inquiry until we finally got him. Customer satisfaction indeed!  We are over the moon with Hunter ( formerly known as Pooch)and spoil him every day (we can't help it) :)He is the most amazing, handsome , smart,adorable dog EVER .....he is learning fast , was potty trained by the time he was 4 months old ,very sociable and playful everybody just loves him to pieces.I attached a picture of him with one my sons at the beach - one of Hunter's favorite places:) Thank you so much for all the help!

Regards, The Zandler Family

My son has been training Lola.  She knows commands and walks very well on a leash.  She alerts us when she needs to go outside to go to the bathroom.  Lola is just like her Mom when it comes to following us around.  She is everywhere that I am and she is so sweet.  Loves to have visitors but also makes her presence known in the house.  We couldn't have asked for a better puppy and now young dog. She has settled in to our life so well and I have no regrets or complaints about her.  Good luck with your new litter.  I'm sure all of those puppies are adorable!!!!

Here's Lola aka Asta at 6 months old now. We love her so much. She is such a great dog and a loyal companion to out family!!!

Lisa, Jeff, and Cooper

First off, I would like to thank The Happy Woofer for our beautiful puppy Paige (formerly Randy). She has really helped complete our family. From the start house breaking her has been great. She is great around other people and dogs; and especially, in our case, children. As per the vet, she is a very healthy (and super cute), with a wonderful demeanor. We are so happy with Paige that we have already began talking about getting her another sister or brother in a couple years. When we do, we plan on going back to The Happy Woofer.
Have a wonderful day!!

Just an Ophelia (Maddy) update!  I figured I’d send you a couple pictures now that she is getting to be toward 1 year old.  She really is a beautiful dog with a great personality.  She also loves to swim, which is a bonus!   A couple pictures are attached!

All the best, Jeff (and Jennifer)
