    •   Smeraglia  Teddy Bear Schnoodles & English Goldendoodles have a very distinctive look and can be easily recognized by their beautiful blocky heads and outstanding beauty.
    • All of our parent dogs and puppies begin their lives as family pets that are loved and socialized from birth.  
Our "Super Puppy" Program:  
    • They are hand raised and birthed in our nursery and then monitored 24/7.
    • They are weighed daily and evaluated daily to ensure proper weight gain and development.
    • They are up-to-date with all age appropriate vaccinations and medications.We have vets that come to our nursery regularly to oversee our puppies growth and development
    • We provide our clients with a 2-year health guarantee against genetic health defects.
    • We have a one-of-kind "SUPER PUPPY" program that begins at birth and continues for 16 weeks and beyond, depending on the needs of our adoptive families.
    • Our Teddy Bear Schnoodles & English Goldendoodle puppies are NEVER left alone.  They are loved, cared for and interacted with around the clock 24/7
    • We are extremely careful with all of the critical stages of puppy development and we do not subject our puppies to any negative situations during their critical imprint periods.
    • We have a unique weaning program that focuses on confidence and we meet each puppy where they are individual. Just because a puppy is a certain age does not mean that he or she is ready to be weaned.
    • We assess each puppy and wear them when he or she is developmentally ready. 
    • Once the puppies are weaned, we continue our unique "SUPER PUPPY" Socialization Program.
    • Our goal is to introduce each puppy to 100 different sights and sounds from approximately 6 weeks of age until 8 weeks of age. This will reduce the amount of fear that a puppy has due to lack of socialization. These puppies will be more socialized and will become happier, more confident puppies. This is critical for puppies that will go on to be Service or Therapy Dogs and family pets.
    • We have loving and dedicated nursery nannies that work with each puppy individually to help them with any issues that they may have. Schnoodles are very sensitive puppies and they are people pleasers, they need lots of positive reinforcement. 

We Know Our Puppies:
    • We spend time each day with every puppy individually to ensure they are properly socialized and have good emotional health. We can honestly say, "WE KNOW OUR PUPPIES".
    • We also introduce all of our puppies to basic manners, obedience and crate training from 6 to 8 weeks of age.
    • We have an incredible media team and we take beautiful professional pictures of our puppies at 2, 4 & 6 weeks of age and we also take professional videos of each litter at 6-7 weeks of age. We want our clients to get to know our puppies as well as they can and we like to share them because we are so proud of our babies.
    • We also provide additional pawtography services for additional photos and videos upon request
 
Temperament Rules:
  • We do a temperament evaluation on every puppy at 7 weeks of age. This allows us to match each puppy with the family who is the best suited for them. Our puppies are stunning and exceptionally beautiful -that is obvious, but here at Smeraglia, TEMPERAMENT Rules!!
  • We match our puppies based on our clients 1st & 2nd favorite - which is picked from their 6-week pictures and videos - BUT temperament rules. We ultimately will match our client with the puppy who is best suited for them based on temperament. If you choose a puppy based on looks and it's NOT a good personality match,  that will be very short-lived.
