I came across Hampshire Labrodoodle by chance after contacting serval other breeders.
As my son has special needs and health issues I needed to feel I could trust the breeder and feel confident that our puppy would be coming from a loving and professional breeder.
After my first phone call with Louis and Fran I felt confident that they were as keen as me to ensure we would have a puppy that would suit my sons needs and our family as a whole.
It soon became very clear that Fran and Louis are exceptional breeders who have a wealth of knowledge and experience of Labradoodles and clearly love this breed of dog.
They kept us informed of Moe's progress, as her pregnancy developed and were always on hand to answer any questions or advice if needed.
When the puppy's arrived they posted photos and videos which really helped my son to feel part of the process.
We were positively encouraged to meet Moe as soon as we could which gave us an idea of what kind of temperament our puppy might have.
We also got to meet all the other dogs which was amazing, they are all clearly part of the family and reassured us even more that we had struck gold with Fran and Louis.
At our first meeting of the puppy's we feel in love with little Isla.
Louis had already said he felt she would be a good choice for our family but the decision was my sons who chose her not knowing this.
We all agree she will be the perfect choice for our family and love getting the daily photos and videos.
It's been great to also have contact with the other family's having the rest of the litter and watching all there attics on the web cam.
I cannot recommend Hampshire Labradoodles enough the puppy's are part of a family and as such socialised from day one in a busy household full of love.

So hear are some words for a recommendation.... hope its ok! Feel free to chop it about as you wish, typical me got a bit carried away so it may be a bit too long!! but its all true and I could go on some more if you want!! :-) .................
If you are reading this then you are probably looking for a Labradoodle but trying to find the right place for your new puppy to come from........... relax, you have found that place!!
I honestly don't think there can be any breeders out there that would give as much as Fran and Louis do throughout this whole process. Even before we committed to a puppy Louis gave up literally hours talking to us on the phone to make sure he could point us in the right puppy direction. Then once we were on the list and the puppies were born he again spent ages making sure of what our, and the other prospective puppy owners wants and wishes were so he could make sure everyone was happy.
Fran and Louis are so friendly, warm and welcoming. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. They are there if you have any questions or need any advice. We are always made to feel completely welcome and unhurried when we go to visit the puppies (and we are invited to do this as much as we would like..... what a treat!). Louis is constantly sending updated pictures and videos of the pups and the puppycam that Louis sets up at 4 weeks is great....... everything about this journey has made us feel so involved in the pups from day 1, it is a privilege to have such amazing people as the breeders of our pup.
We also know 100% that our puppy is having a fantastic and loving start to its life. being a central part of their family home, being given attention and affection every day, playing with the other dogs, and having so much fun playing together in their fantastic puppy area!
We feel incredibly lucky to be getting our puppy from here. Fran, Louis and their daughter Sophie simply go above and beyond.
Getting a puppy is an incredibly exciting thing just in itself but there is no question that getting our puppy from Hampshire Labradoodles has made this experience the most joyful, reassuring, exciting and involved one we could of dreamt it could be.
Thank you Fran, Louis, Sophie, Moe, LuLu, The rest of the doggy crew, and of course the puppies.... Especially Crumble!

We'd just like to say how much we have enjoyed our experience of getting a puppy from you so far - it's only a couple of weeks until he moves in with us and we can't wait! We weren't sure what to expect from a breeder, but it's been such a pleasure, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
You both clearly love the dogs, and the atmosphere that they are living in is great. They all seem so happy and settled, and that makes us feel confident that our puppy is getting off to the best possible start in life. We love that the puppies are so involved in your family, in the house and being handled all the time, and they are clearly given everything they could possibly need, from the fabulous playpen to good food and a loving, domestic environment. We still talk about one of your first messages saying you'd been up since some crazy hour roasting a chicken for Moe as she was hungry!
We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of, and quality of, pictures and videos of the puppies, as well as daily updates on how they are getting on - and of course the webcam! There have been many requests for pictures or videos of particular puppies, and they have always been provided, which is so lovely when you just want to know your pup is doing ok. You & Fran have always been very welcoming whenever we have wanted to visit, and we've never felt rushed or in the way. We feel that we've been closely involved with our puppy from the minute he was born and that has really helped with engaging our children who are at fever pitch now!
From a practical point of view, we feel well informed and prepared for the puppy's homecoming, and we've had some great tips. It's been brilliant for us to know that we can ask a question, however silly it may seem, and get a useful answer pretty much straight away, which is particularly good for us as we are first time dog owners. It's also been nice to be involved with the other puppy owners, sharing tips and advice, and it's given us a real sense of community.
All told, a fabulous experience, and we cannot wait to get our puppy home - we are also looking forward to keeping in touch with you, Fran and the rest of the group to let you know how he's getting on :)

I couldn't recommend Louis and Fran highly enough. They are not just the breeders of my puppy. They have become true friends. Kind, caring people who love their dogs. They go above and beyond what is required of them. They have kept in touch from the moment the puppies were born with constant photos, videos and later the webcam. You wouldn't get this from any other breeders. Thanks Louis and Fran for all you have done and for bringing my gorgeous puppy Jesse into my life. You are amazing people.
