We adopted Tillie two years ago. She was almost 4 months old when she joined our family. She has been a fabulous dog, smart, loving, and adaptable. She gets along well with active children, cats, and other dogs. She has been easy to train, but as with all dogs, training has been essential. Stacey is an excellent breeder; she clearly knows what qualities to breed for in her dogs. I highly recommend Golden Xpress Labradoodles.

Stacey is the absolute sweetest! Benny (was Cyrus) is our first dog, and Stacey has been a wonderful source of knowledge every step of the way! She answered all of my questions, and it's clear she loves her pups so much. Wholeheartedly recommend!

We were looking for a somewhat older pup with some strong initial training. Buttons, an 8-month-old cute as a button pup, fit the bill perfectly and came home with me a couple of weeks ago. It’s been great. Such a good puppy and so well trained; she has settled right in. Stacey was great to work with from the get-go. We visited her first to get to know Buttons and to see how our 15-year-old goldendoodle responded. Visit went well and planned to go back to get Buttons after Stacey handled the last of the vet stuff including having Buttons spayed. Stacey kept us posted throughout the process. We arranged a mutually agreeable pickup time so that we could safely drive the 4 hours home with our new bundle of joy. Stacey had everything ready to go along with loads of information and supplies. We are having so much fun with Buttons who loves exploring her new neighborhood on our multiple walks a day (no problem getting in those 10K steps with her along) and making lots of new people friends. Would highly recommend Stacey and Golden Xpress Labradoodles if you are looking for the perfect pup.

I met Stacey in the Oregon 2020 wildfires, while taking part in rescuing the animals people were forced to leave while fleeing for safety. One of these animals was my sweet senior girl. When it was determined that she was in deplorable condition and unable to return home, Stacey took it upon herself to make sure she found the perfect new home, where she would be loved and taken well care of. She was successful.Stacey didn't stop there. She is always a phone call away whenever I have had a question or need advice. She has attended vet visits with us to help with her care. She was there for us when we found out she has cancer. She has always made sure we have what we need to keep the old lady going and always goes out of her way to make sure she is comfortable, even if it means a special spot on her couch to park her aching butt.She has done ALL of this free of charge. She genuinely loves and cares for animals. She is not in it for the money, she is in it for the love and forever friendships she makes with the people she meets thru her animals.To those that think she is raising a bunch of abused, neglected dogs and pumping out puppies for profit, I ask of you to reconsider your thoughts. Someone out to make money never has a selfless heart like Stacey does. And if you EVER have an issue with ANY of her dogs, labradoodle or not, she is always a phone call away...

All kinds of allergies & health problems. Sweet, loving, and beautiful but would not recommend this breeder - feels very much like a puppy mill.

We got our puppy Koby 6 months ago from Stacey and our experience has been just wonderful. She is very detailed, provides excellent information on how to care for your puppy, the do’s and don’ts and sends you home with a complete health record along with important supplies. We love our little bundle of joy, he is so sweet and friendly and playful-we couldn’t be more happier about his temperament. We continue to stay in touch, Stacey has extensive knowledge and experience and very helpful if you have any questions along the way (we are first time owners so it’s great to have that extra guidance sometimes). This shows you how much she truly cares about the well being of her dogs. I highly recommend Golden Express Labradoodles for anyone looking!

I met Stacey through a dog trainer after having a sad experience w/a doodle that had not been trained or socialized properly.Stacey had Magic, that we named Buddy, a 6 month male who was and is still the sweetest boy ever. He’s now going on 14 and he healed our family from the previous experience w/his gentle loving ways.We have since in our family gotten 3 doodles from Stacey. Our daughter has 2yo old Dolly and we now have Maddie, aka Candy who is turning 5 months old soon. Buddy’s 1/2 sister, Rocksy was w/us for almost 13 years. She, too, was a loving, wonderful companion. We brought Maddie into our lives as Buddy was listless and sad. Maddie has brought some life back into Buddy’s and our lives w/her silly antics. Once again one of Stacey’s babies has healed our sad hearts after losing Rocksy.All I can say is I, too thank Stacey in my heart for these precious friends.

Luna (puppy Silky) is my best friend. She has such a truly hilarious, sweet manner. She is smart and picks up on things quick. She runs to the door when I get home every-time even if she is with my housemates in the house. I had searched and searched online & found Golden Xpress with two puppies left in a litter for just the price my mom had said we could pay. Her fur is perfectly wavy and doesn’t shed at all. I couldn’t have asked for a better companion. Thank you Stacey for being a part of my journey and bringing me my best bud!

Stacey has been wonderful. We adopted our 25lb male in 2014, he’s perfect for my daughters needs as an emotional support dog. Now in 2022 almost 2023 we are adopting a similarly sized chocolate Merle female older puppy who seems very much like our males temperament! We pick her up today! Thank you Stacey for trying so hard to place the right puppy in a matching suitable and responsible home. You work hard, and you care about these dogs. It was a pleasure to deal with you each time, and I appreciate the communications back and forth. Your patience with me was appreciated. This little girl will be loved and cared for responsibly, thank you for working with our family! Your care for these pups and our family showed!

Stacey has been an excellent person to work with. She has extensive knowledge about dogs. We received good written information on how to care for our dog and what to expect developmentally. Her early foundational work with her puppies was in areas we weren’t familiar with but laid the groundwork for well adjusted dogs. Since we’ve had our dog, she has continued to help us above and beyond what most breeders would do with their clients. Stacey is not only a solid professional but she treats you as a friend. I trust her explicitly and would strongly recommend GoldenExpress Labradoodles to anyone who is looking for a dog.

This was one of the best decisions I’ve made! I fell in love with my little Cleo in an instant. She is smart, funny and so lovey♥️. Stacey sure knows what she is doing!! In fact I texted her today and said I wish I had gotten two! Don’t hesitate to call, they are honest and kind people and so patient with excited new mommy,s! I recommend them with my whole heart.Sincerely, Julie

Big shout out to Stacey! I have nothing but wonderful things to day! It was super obvious immediately how much Stacey loves her dogs. I visited for a long time and she was very patient in providing me information to help make the right decision for my home.My pup is perfect (and my vet agrees “she is perfect in every way”). She has brought so much laughter and love to such a dark time in our world.Update 4/22: I have to say, Georgine is the best pup around. She is 2 years old now, a AKC certified Good Canine Citizen, and just amazes me everyday! She really is the most mellow, chillest pup around. I thank Stacey (in my head) everyday for providing me the most loving, cutest, well behaved, silly doggy. For real, she has spoiled me. If I ever get another pup, there is NO doubt in my mind, I would return to Stacey in a second. So much love!

Our puppy Murphy has been home with us for nearly 2 weeks. We are delighted with her and with all the comprehensive information we received from Stacey prior to our pick up date. Besides the fun stuff, our going home packet included all the important supplies, instructions and records for the health and well-being of our new puppy. Stacey helped us choose a dog that was best suited to our needs and desires. Her lengthy experience really shows when choosing your canine companion. Thank you Stacey from the Dickerson’s in Idaho!

My career as a Chiropractic Physician is how I was introduced to Mis Stacy Smithers. This woman has a caring and loving heart and she has an inate connection with all animals. I have known Ms. Smithers for over 30 years and I would trust her with the care and breeding of my animals. I remember 30 years ago when my English Bull Terrier had puppies. 8 were delivered. She stayed up all night. And continues this with each litter. I have been blessed with witnessing the birth of a bundle of puppies at Ms. Smithers house. I was impressed immensely on how smooth the birthing process was.My hats off to her experience.

We have had our blue Merle pup for a little over a month and he is the first dog I’ve ever had. He is so perfect, his color and temperament are so beautiful. Stacey does an incredible job of matching pups with families, He couldn’t be a more perfect fit. I couldn’t say enough good things about the experience and the dog. Thank you Stacey, he’s the sweetest little soul.

Stacey was so amazing to work with! We had a horrible experience with an awful breeder before finding Golden Xpress. Our pup is almost 6 months old and she is amazingly smart, and the sweetest thing ever! We are completely in love with her and will be using Golden Xpress for our next dog for sure! ❤️

We are extremely happy with our puppy from Golden Xpress Labradoodles. Stacey and her family truly care about the dogs and it shows. They have a real knack for matching people and puppies! He is perfect for us.

Our extended family has 4 dogs from Golden Xpress Labradoodles and we couldn’t be happier with them! They are all very attached to their humans and a huge part of our respective families. The two boys are the life of the party and the two girls are sweet and loving. Stacie cares very much about every dog she raises, and wants the best for each of them. We highly recommend Golden Xpress Labradoodles to everyone we know.

We just got our 2nd labradoodle from Golden Xpress. Our first one is 13 years old and she has been so great for us all these years. Our new puppy is a little over 8 weeks now and is super sweet too. Stacey works hard to socialize her dogs to make good companions. Our little one is learning commands and working hard on potty training. She is eager to please and loves to play and run with our 6 year old son. We took her to the vet yesterday and she was already up to date on all vaccinations and is in great health! We are very happy with our pups and would recommend Golden Xpress to our family and friends and anyone else.

I have know Stacey for about 15 years. I bought my first Golden Labradoodle from her at that time, due to a divorce I was forced to give my Joey back to her so that he would be well cared for. She then found him a new home with his sister, where he was loved until he passed away a few months ago. So now to my new experience. Because of this virus and being home I thought what better time to get a new puppy. When I messaged Stacey to see if she remember me, she did and said I have the perfect puppy for you. I got a Blue Merle Australian Labrodoodle parents are Tonks and Sky. He was already purchased and was driven to LA, then was flown back to Portland. She showed me a pic and me and my daughters were in love. So we picked up him a week later and have been so pleased we made that decision. As always Stacey and her Labradoodles are the best in the US in my opinion. Thank you so much for the new family member. Enzo.......
