What Our Customer's Say -
We love our new little puppy!! We Named him Gunner and he seems to be loving his new home!! Thanks!!
We just wanted to send you and updated picture of one of the puppies you sold over the summer. This is Brutus, he is now about 9 months old. He’s happy and healthy! He’s also very curious and full of energy. Loves to play first, eat second and sleep third!
We are still absolutely loving our puppy Freo that we purchased from you back in April! He is healthy, and full of energy!!! We couldn’t be more pleased. He truly be any cuter either!
I did have a question for you. When we first got him, you sent us home with some food samples you use, but I had never heard of the brand back then, and couldn’t find it. Was the brand “Zignature” by any chance?
Freo seems to be licking his paws a lot, and throws up about once a week, so I think it’s time we look into a different diet. He’s been on Purina Pro Plan. Just curious what you use since you feed a lot of little mouths!
I am purchased Madelyn Brileigh from Trish Denning on 02/27/17. From the moment I saw her, I knew she would’ve one my heart. She is so gentle and loving. She runs like the wind and she loves to fetch and return corn cobs. My cat, Tess, became her best friend and they play together. She is strong, healthy, happy and loved. She has never met a stranger and she loves new people. When it is time for another Teddybear, Trish’s website will be my first stop. I adore Madelyn and could not imagine my life without her.
We brought our Ozzy and Max home on December 20, 2019. They are the sweetest puppies, very lovable and smart. Working with Tricia was wonderful. We wanted two puppies from the same litter and she recommended these little guys because they got along well. They still do! They are lively and playful and have so much love to give. We comment daily how sweet they are. We are so glad to have them! Thank you Tricia!
First off this was the best breeder I had contacted about Teddy Bear pups. There are a lot of scammers-Tricia is definitely not. So thorough and down to earth from our initial inquiry until my husband picked the pup up from her house. Our Teddy Bear pup named Bear is the absolute best! He is a joyful little guy who LOVES being around our 3 and 5 year old. Happy, not at all aggressive, loves to play and loves nap time and bedtime. We were beyond thrilled with our experience and would hands down recommend both Denning and Teddy Bears to anyone. Our special little guy doesn’t shed, gives lots of kisses (especially when we wake up, he just licks our faces straight for 5 minutes) and was potty trained by month 3. We couldn’t have picked a better family dog!
I want to thank Tricia for providing such a wonderful experience for a first-time dog owner. It was very easy to communicate with her throughout the whole process. And of course, we could not be happier with our Pup, Dexter. Our journey began when he was born on May 15, 2020, and we could barely contain our excitement to meet him for pickup on July 17th(and Tricia). Sure, being from Michigan, I was a little apprehensive giving a deposit to a breeder two states away. It was again Tricia being so professional and forthcoming with updates on her website that just assured me that we made the right decision. Thank you again.
My puppy, Henry, just had his first birthday this past Sunday so I wanted to come and leave a testimonial for Denning Farms! Henry has been such an amazing addition to our family (my husband and I). Everyone that meets him tells us that he is the cutest dog they have ever seen, and I definitely agree! I had never heard of a cavachon before finding Denning Farms, but I recommend the breed to everyone now! I can't wait to add a second pup to our family and will definitely be working with Tricia again when the time comes. This was our first dog as adults, and Tricia made the process so easy and we could not be happier. Henry has been extremely healthy and always gets rave reviews from his veterinarian. Highly recommend Denning Farms!!
My puppy, Ziggy, will be celebrating his 2nd birthday on November 24th. Our experience with Tricia Denning was wonderful! She was very thorough and answered all of our questions in a timely fashion. We were going back and forth between two puppies and she was very patient with us. We drove 16 hours total to pick up our puppy and I would do it all over again! He is the healthiest, happiest puppy ever and is the perfect addition to our family. Thanks again Tricia and Denning Farms!!
Just wanted to send a photo of Milo after his first groom. He is a 4 month old bundle of joy, energy and happiness. He was easy to potty train and continues to be a daily delight to us. He is such a cuddler and affectionate companion.
Thank you for sending us such a happy, healthy puppy.
I am a loving, responsible dog owner, who is moving away from my family's house and I want an adorable companion of my own! I have owned a Goldendoodle since he was 8 weeks and learned how to care for and train him. Although I'm away I miss him so much and he is what I look forward to most when I go home. I have experience with potty training, general training, giving medications, grooming, going to the vet, and doggy playtime. My Goldendoodle also suffers from a lot of anxiety so I have learned how to give extra care to him. I am a senior in college, 21 years old, and take online classes so I will be at home all day, and I do not like to party. I would love nothing more than one of your Cavachons!
Bailey is the prefect puppy and she fit into our little family right away. She loves to cuddle and is super friendly to everyone she meets. My experience with Tricia was super positive. I am from Missouri and I was a little hesitant about putting a deposit down when the dog was out of state but Tricia was so professional it helped reassure me this a the right decision. I definitely would get another puppy from Tricia.
My owner named me Buddy. I was born on December 24, 2019 and arrived on March 5, 2020 to Brenda Tisbert. I wanted to let you know that I am very happy here. I get to play with her two granddaughters every day who live next door. We take walks everyday and I also have a big backyard to run around in. Everyone thinks I’m cute and adorable. I’m happy, healthy, and growing bigger by the day!
Merry Christmas and thank you!
P.S: I forgot to tell you that I am very spoiled!
Hello! Mia, a teddybear puppy, joined our family Feb 2020, just before the pandemic really set in. She was definitely the bright spot in a pretty dim situation. She is the absolute best puppy; couldn’t imagine our family without her! Tricia was great to work with and answered all of our questions. She invited us into her home to meet Mia and one of her older female teddy bears, who was just as sweet as Mia. If you’re concerned about this being a puppy mill, don’t be. You can tell the min you meet Tricia that she loves all her pups and they are part of her family. I recommend her to anyone that asks about Mia and will definitely get another puppy from her!
Our Mimi has brought so much joy into our home that we can’t imagine not having her! She’s healthy and playful and very intelligent. Thank you so much for raising such beautiful puppies!
We have now had Izzy for 3 weeks what a Gem!! Already loves going on a leash, potty training is going good, already sits on command. We just love her.
We named our Teddybear puppy Remy. We were so excited to meet her so it felt like an eternity waiting to pick her up at the airport on January 7th. Initially I was worried about her long travel day to us but she arrived so happy and healthy. Remy is gentle, playful, incredibly smart and a total cuddle bug. Potty training has been pretty easy as it seems that she came to us already knowing that she must handle her business outside. She immediately slept in her crate only waking once during the night to potty for the first week. Since then she has been sleeping through the night without any issues. I mean is this even normal for a puppy!? I honestly feel that Remy's temperament is a testament to the wonderful job that Trisha and her family do raising these puppies until finding them their forever home. I will be honest and say that I had some reservations about purchasing a puppy from out of state and from a picture but this turned out to be the best decision ever! We absolutely adore Remy! When it is time to get our Remy girl a sibling we will definitely be coming back to Denning Farms! THANK YOU TRISHA!!
We are so happy with our cavachon pup, Auggie, from Denning Farms! We picked him up from the St. Louis airport cargo area last month. We were lucky as the Denning’s were coming our way to ship other puppies from St. Louis. At pickup we witnessed a very organized process for getting the other puppies checked in for their flights. Tricia also gave us a great goodie bag complete with a blanket rubbed on his siblings and some food to get him started. He gets cuter every week and is taking to his training right away!
My 12 year old cockapoo had just died and I wasn’t sure if I was even ready to think about having another dog. Breeders in my state weren’t even having liters of cockapoos. It was by luck that I had found Denning farms and they had a liter born 3 days after my sweet pup had died. Trisha was so kind through the whole process, giving updates with pictures and videos. I was skeptical about buying a dog two states away but Trisha made me feel so comfortable.
Dobbi has been such a joy, he has such a fun personality. Not only is he beautiful, he’s sweet and spunky and just the smartest little guy. I couldn’t be more happy to have him.
I have to say that I picked up Lucy in Mid February, she is the sweetest Puppy EVER! Already house trained & doing exceptionally well w/the Trainer! Denning Farms is the Best Breeder anywhere!! She is a Multipoo Jenny
Would love to offer a few comments. However, have been trying to get a response from Denning Farms since we purchased our Cavachon a couple of weeks ago with no success.
I got Luna in January 2019 and she has been the best friend a girl could ask for. She is such a sweet cuddle bug but she loves romping in the outdoors too. The whole process of getting her was super easy and the folks at Denning Farms were wonderful to work with. Luna has been a happy and healthy little dog and I have recommended Denning Farms to several friends already.
Couldn't be less pleased. We were strongly considering a puppy from Denning Farms. I called and spoke with Tricia who could not have seemed less interested in talking. She was quick to say though if I wanted to purchase call back with my credit card number. I emailed her immediately after our conversation and asked for pictures of the parents. Never heard back.
We put a deposit on our adorable Teddy Bear 5 days after she was born on January 3rd, 2021. At first, I was like so many and skeptical purchasing a puppy online but, after speaking with Tricia I truly felt at ease. It seemed like we waited forever to get our baby but with the updates that Tricia posted of her growing really helped. I was pretty nervous knowing she was going to fly on March 5th from Iowa to Chicago(change planes) and onto her new hometown @ BWI Airport in Maryland, but she did awesome and was such an easy process. Tricia is so organized that it made it simple from start to finish. Meeting Lacie for the first time and getting to hold her was all that I thought it would be. She was as excited to see her mommy and I was her. Kisses all the way home!!!! She had her first vet visit on the 16th and received a lot of attention their and a clean bill of health. She is very playful as Tricia said she was and the kisses keep coming, along with the puppy biting, LOL. She's so adorable and we Love her so much. I would and have already recommended Denning Farms to anyone that is looking for an adorable and healthy puppy. Thanks again Tricia. All the best to you and your family always.
Trying to submit Lacie's adorable selfie, but it's not allowing me too.
We picked up our Maltipoo puppy 'Snowy' over the christmas break when he was 9 weeks old. Tricia was kind enough to send over a toy and a blanket rubbed on his litter, which made his initial adjustment easy. In addition Tricia was a pleasure to work with, very professional and helped keep me updated on the puppy during his first 9 weeks.
Snowy has brought so much unconditional love and cuddles since his arrival. Thank you to Denning Farms!!
Best Girl Ever!! Today is her 4th Birthday! I coudnt be more happy!! I’m so Blessed! Love my baby girl! Gracie May!! My spoiled brat!! Lol!! Thank you Dennings farm for her!!- love Sharon!!
After doing extensive searching I found Denny Farms in Iowa. I drove to a beautiful family farm out in the country. Tricia is a mom, wife and runs a business of breeding adorable puppies humanely. The website photos are accurate and if you are lucky enough to drive there you will enter a warm family home and have the pleasure of meeting her in person. Our Teddy Bear "BUDDY" has slept thru the night since he got home 5 nights ago. BUDDY adapted quickly to our home with a Female German Shepherd & Male Terrier Mix. We took him to play with children and he loved it. He will be my dads dog as his Maltese died this spring. BUDDY will spend a lot of time with us too so it is important he adjusts to people, dogs and children. BUDDY is the sweetest little guy and I would recommend Denning Farms to anyone looking for a healthy puppy with a good temperament. We are so happy to add him to our furry family!
Our Cockapoo, Bailey, is the best dog I have ever had! She is so loving and such a cuddle dog. She loves to play and go on walks everyday!
Everyone that meets her says she is the most lovable dog - always giving kisses!
She rings the bell to go out rarely has accidents - so smart!
She sleeps with us and cuddles so much it is adorable.
Thanks so much for this precious gift in our lives!
Izzy will soon be 8 months and she has been a blessing. She is such a great dog.She goes every where with us.
My name is Marisa. I was 10 last time I was emailing you regarding your cockapoo liter born on July 1, 2007.
My dreams came true, and we adopted Nike, cockapoo male #5 born on July 1, 2007. Today will be 14 on July 1, and is still kicking it and we are blessed.
He has been a joy. Full of personality, and so so funny. He is healthy (Thank goodness), and has the energy of a 3 year old puppy. His groomer always comments on how healthy his coat is-so shiny and thick, and full of color. We sometimes wonder how this happens but are so grateful.
Here are some recent pictures of him. I figured you’d like to see as I don’t think we ever sent you any updates.
Thank you for giving me my best friend. He has been such a light in my life when I’ve needed him most.
Hope you are well.
This testimony is long overdue. We received our teddybear shichon puppy in January 2021. As a first time dog buyer this was a great experience working with Tricia. She answered all my questions upfront when initially researching as well as assisted in determining the best puppy to put our deposit on. She also surprised us with being in our area to drop off the puppy versus our drive to get him. Leo is a fabulous puppy and has a very similar demeanor to what Tricia relayed when he was only 8 weeks. He is an absolute joy to our family! Thank you so much Tricia to you (and your husband for the drop-off) throughout this process. I highly recommend Denning Farms for anyone interested in one of these breeds.
I am absolutely grateful for finding Tricia and Denning Farms, a year ago while battling anxiety and depression, my dog has been the best emotional support animal and brought so much joy to my life!!!!! Great customer service, updates were always on time w/ pictures and fast shipping too. Time has really flew by now Senna Chanel is 1 years old day!!! Thank you again.
Paddibear the Teddybear is two years old and the best companion and fur baby in the world! I love her to the moon and back!
Denning Farms is top notch!
We brought home our sweet little JoJo in January. She’s the sweetest, little yorkiepoo! She’s super tiny, barely over 5 pounds at 7 months old. She has the best temperament, so loving and smart. We could not have asked for more. It is overheard at least 10
times every day “she is so cute!”
Our “Leo” purchased on 6/14/21 is a warm, cuddly, smart Cockapoo!! She came to us after losing our 10 year old Cockapoo and could not have more completely filled that void. The entire process working with Tricia and Denning Farms was fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone who asks!! Leo is beautiful and loved by all who meet her!!
We are a married couple of 54 years and both of us retired from The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Mike worked in the Information Systems computer area for the hospital for 39 years. Phyllis was a Social Worker at the hospital and the community for 38 years. We have had Cavalier and Cocker fury kids all of our married lives. Our 12 yr. old Spaniel, Maddie died in May 2021. We miss her terribly. Our hearts and home want to adopt a little one to love and care for.
We have 2 adult married children and 2 adult grandchildren and 1 younger, 11 years old grandson. They love our sweet babies and care for them if we are away for a few days. So, we will be so grateful to be able to make a warm, loving home for a sweet Cavalier.
Our maltipoo, Milo, turned 1 year on July 4. He is the most wonderful pet anyone could ask for. He brings us a tremendous amount of joy every day. Milo’s temperament is that of a sweet, loving dog. We wanted a lap dog and we definitely got one. If we are sitting down, he is in our lap!!! He is very smart and trained easily.
Best. Dog. Ever
This is Bella Rose, our Maltipoo. We are so happy and pleased we purchased her from Denning Farms. Tricia was professional and honest, and we can highly recommend Denning Farms for any one of their breeds.
This testimonial is LONG overdue! Here is our sweet Bella, she is a cockapoo that we got from Denning Farms in May 2008. She turned 12 in February and has been more than we ever could have imagined! Bella has gone through the wedding of my husband and I, three moves, two babies, and so much more! I can’t even put into words how perfect she has been since the beginning. From never crying through the night, to easy to potty train, to no chewing and beyond sweet, she’s the dog you dream to have. Even today, our vet continues to comment on how she can’t believe how Bella doesn’t “act her age”. She still is in great health and loves to play with the kids and can fetch for hours. I could go on and on but I just have to say thank you to the Denning’s for providing us with the most perfect addition to our family for the past 12 years!
Loving our little Bamse (teddybear in Danish). She is 4.5 months and 11 pounds. Growing quickly. She has the softest and prettiest coat. What a great addition she has been to the family
I was totally against getting a small inside dog, and then my daughter begged for one!
In a moment of weakness I purchased this little cutie. I have completely fallen in love. This is by far the sweetest dog I have ever owned! She was a breeze to potty train, minds very well, and is a major cutler. I don’t think I will now own anything else but teddybears! We all love her! Look no further! If you have a family and want a great family dog this is the bread!
I absolutely love my boys Rowen & Rocco. Rocco is my maltipoo . They both flew to Ca at 3 months and have a happy life in Ca. Rowen is 11 & Rocco is 8 . Both beautiful , loving ,smart loyal boys who both have slightly different personalities. I think they are beautiful and are my world . Rocco is easier & more independent than Rowen . He goes with the flow . Rowen thinks he’s a person and Rowen is king of the house & a mommy’s boy . Both are very special . So glad I have them .
We can not thank Carl & Amanda Hanson enough for recommending you to us! 💙🐾💙
Our sweet 1 year old is amazing! We never thought we would find another Multipoo like our last but….thx to you we have! We wouldn’t give a million bucks for him!
You all are amazing ! God bless you all!
Tucker is such a sweet boy. He’s everything anyone would ever want in a puppy. He’s five months old now, and we’ve had him for three months. He’s bright, curious, cute, energetic, sweet, adaptable, snuggly, loving and eager to please. We could not be happier with him, and he could not be happier with us.
It took me 12 years to decide on a pup since my Doberman crossed over.I looked a couple breeders of small dogs because of my health limitations.
MY teddy bear has put so much love to us and am so thankful for Dennings quality pups.
I'd even like another.
I'll post a picture of Harley if I can figure it out.
Thank you so much for this little guy.Hes 6 months old and 11 lbs.
We can't say enough about Tricia and Denning Farms; if there were more stars, we would give her a 10. Their pups are healthy and professionally cared for from breeding, to birth and sale. Tricia is always available to new pup owners, before and after purchase. Our little bundle of joy brings a smile to our faces so many times each day; a sign of a good breed, personality and healthy pup. We are discussing purchasing another Teddy Bear and there is only one site we will visit...Denning Farms is the best.
Otis just turned one and has been an absolute joy! He quickly potty trained and rings a bell to go outside. He loves to snuggle and only barks when someone is at the door. He adores our older dog and has brought more life back into her. He’s a great dog!
Tricia was wonderful with the whole process. I really liked that I spoke to her, in person. She always took the time to answer all my questions and made the whole process smooth. I could tell that Otis received a lot of love and attention before he came to our home. ❤️
