Fall 2020 - Charleston, WV
Our beloved labradoodle passed away unexpectedly in July. He blessed our lives for nearly 14 years. While still grieving, we decided that our lives are empty without a dog. I began to search for a reputable breeder in WV and surrounding states and was fortunate to finally connect with Linda Carr. We had purchased our wire fox terrier and our labradoodle from out-of-state breeders, so I knew what I was looking for in a breeder and a dog. We also did not want a puppy who looked like our Ollie since he is irreplaceable. I was impressed with Linda from our first conversation. I studied her excellent website, FB page, and reviews. She was so kind and informative. We had many emails, texts, phone calls, pics, and videos. She was always responsive. I was impressed with everything I saw, especially her care of the parents and puppies and commitment to socialization and training. When we picked up our Sammi during this COVID pandemic, Linda was outstanding in the way she provided information, supplies, and our introduction to our new family member. I really cannot say enough about Linda and her love of dogs. Sammi is smart and beautiful. The socialization and care and her expertise shows. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants the best in breeding and love of dogs.
Fall 2020 - Lawton, OK
I am completely overwhelmed by the entire process; from application to pick-up/delivery of our Rex (known to many as Seger) it has been amazing. Linda has been available throughout the process, helping make important decisions including how to prepare our home for Rex’s arrival. We have been kept informed during pregnancy, birth, and have seen a multitude of videos of Rex and his siblings during their first eight weeks together. He is adorable and perfect! The amount of work and training completed by Linda prior to us getting Rex is very apparent. When we picked up Rex at the airport, he peed on a pee pad at the word “potty”. We went to grandma’s house, he went on the grass at the word “potty”. This puppy is 8 weeks old! Another example are the veterinary visits for health screening, shots, etc. Thank you Linda and Providence Labradoodles for making sure Rex is perfect for us!
Fall 2020 - Lake Luzerne NY
Providence Labradoodles, (Linda) is a loving caring breeder. Her love and care for the puppies is amazing. She is very knowledgeable regarding current care and training. Tyler is an absolute dream. I would recommend this breeder to any serious dog owner.
Summer 2020 - Butler, PA
Providence Labradoodles is the best breeder I have ever encountered. Linda is completely transparent with her processes, the environment, and the events from conception to pick up day. Gracie (Scarlett/Hudson) is an absolute dream. The caring Linda gives these pups from Day 1 was evident as soon as we got in the car to start home. We have pups from other breeders - both the breeders and pup are wonderful - and Gracie is far more advanced than they were. Linda loves her work and keeps current on recommendations and methods of raising litters. Her pups are testaments to her dedication! Thanks Linda. We are planning our next adoption
Spring 2020. Ice Cream litter - Mansfield, Ohio
I just wanted to let all my friends know the amazing experience I've had getting a pup from Providence Labradoodles. I've had dogs all my life and no where compares to the business that Linda Carr has. She is the owner/breeder/groomer. She is beyond a five star breeder in every way.She was so patient with all my questions and I watched her be so loving, attentive, and caring with each pup. There is an amazing play area outside with all kinds of things for the pups to experience from toys, different textures ,social experiences with adults, kids and other dogs that the transition from her house to your house is minimal. I have a very happy, contented,well balanced and very smart pup! What an amazing feeling to not have that new puppy stress! Thank you Linda for loving what you do, because your love shows thru to each and every pup. I would absolutely buy from you again!
Spring 2020 - Lexington, OH
We recommend Mrs. Linda Carr as a breeder and the owner of Providence Labradoodles without reservations. From our fist communications with Linda she answered all of our questions while being patient and professional. These comments are supportive of Linda; however, we love our new puppy Shelby Sue. She is full of energy and love. Shelby was socialized well prior to coming home with us and is so smart and gentle. We are excited for our guardianship responsibilities and continued relationship with Linda. If you are considering a labradoodle puppy look no further than Providence Labradoodles and Linda as a five-star breeder. You will be glad you did.
Winter 2019 - Bloomington, IN
We purchased the most amazing puppy from Linda. When the puppies were seven weeks old, we drove to Mansfield to meet Linda and the puppies. We were very impressed with the puppy’s parents, Scarlett and Hudson and the puppies were beautiful and so sweet! At first, we had a particular color in mind but quickly realized that we would be happy with any of the puppies. When the puppies were almost eight weeks old, Linda contacted us to see if we would consider taking Capri. She felt that she would be a good match for our family. She was so right as she quickly integrated with our family! Linda was quick to answer any questions we had and sent regular pictures and updates. She was very involved with the puppies from the start and as a result, they are happy and confident. Our little Bailey Capri is sweet, affectionate and such a smart puppy. She is eager to learn and a quick study! Thanks Linda! We are looking forward to the many wonderful years we will have this little girl!
Fall 2018 - Bowie, Maryland
I owe everything to Linda and Providence Labradoodles for my amazing pup. As others have said, from start to finish the entire process was absolutely amazing. By the time Finnegan was ready to come home, we had what I can only describe as an incredibly smooth transition. From potty training to learning to walk on a leash, everything went so well. I have a confident and well-adjusted dog-- all because he had a great start. If you are ready to bring a puppy home, I urge you to consider Providence Labradoodles.
Spring 2019 - Fort Wright, Kentucky
We really enjoyed working with Linda throughout the process of buying our first puppy, Mae (formerly Lilly from Scarlett's spring 2019 litter). She kept us in the loop with pictures, videos, and phone calls during her early weeks. She takes great care in raising the puppies in an environment that is full of love, stimulates their early growth, and leaves them extremely well socialized. As a result, we have the most wonderful, loving dog. She's brought so much joy to our lives. We can't recommend Linda and Providence Labradoodles enough!
Spring 2019 - Millersport Ohio
We got our second labradoodle, Reed right after July 4th from Linda. Our trip home was uneventful as Reed was very comfortable in the car. I know Linda worked with him and his siblings on car rides. So from the beginning it was a positive and easy transition. Our Reed adjusted just fine to his new home and sister, Willow. He was potty trained in no time at all and is/was so friendly with everyone. We absolutely adore him and my heart couldn’t be more full being blessed with these two beautiful and loving labradoodles from Linda. She is amazing at keeping in touch with the future families with pictures, videos and texts (and even FaceTime). Along with keeping in touch years later with concerns, questions and advice, she continues to love her pups and their families. I am so grateful that I have crossed paths with her and have my doodles. I said after I lost my 18 year old Margo several years ago, I couldn’t ever do it again. Now I have two because my first, Willow is just as sweet as my Margo was. When I saw the Spring 2019 litter I told my husband that Willow needed a sibling and that story worked lol. Thanks to Linda and Providence Labradoodles I’m a doodle mom x 2!
Spring 2019 - Ohio
My family had a great experience with ProvidenceLabradoodles. Linda is such an amazing dog mom and puppy caregiver. She always sent videos of the pups, lets us come by for multiple visits (I had a hard time choosing) and all and all provided a safe loving environment for her dogs and puppies. If you’re considering getting a puppy this is the place to go!
Spring 2019 - Powell, OH
We are so blessed that we found Linda and Providence Labradoodles for our new puppy, Stanley. Since the beginning of this process, Linda has gone above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and provide us with knowledge on how to care for our puppy. She sent us weekly updates about Stanley that made us feel like we were right there with him through his different milestones. Her love and compassion for these puppies and her dedication to providing a loving home has helped shaped Stanley into a loving and loyal companion! All of her training efforts and constant attention really shows through Stanley’s personality. We are off to such a great start with Stanley because of Linda’s focus early on with proper positive training techniques! THANK YOU LINDA and Providence Labradoodles!
July, 3019 - Westerville
Wyatt has joined our family and we couldn’t be happier. Linda has done all the right things to give him a great start. The first thing that impresses us was the way she shared videos and pictures of the days before and after the puppies were born. Many breeders don’t share behind the scenes. Linda’s facility is immaculate. We felt that if she went to such lengths to create a clean, safe environment for the puppies she wouldn’t take any shortcuts. Linda went out of her way to create a happy, loving environment. We get the benefit of all her affection and professionalism because Wyatt is a great puppy. Thanks, Linda
Shout out about Linda Carr
I just want the *World* to see for themselves that I am telling the truth when I inadequately try (you need to see it for yourself) to paint this extraordinary picture about Linda Kennedy Carr and Providence Labradoodles.
This is what she does! She feeds and prepares them top of the line food, she trains them, cares for them, loves them too much which is bittersweet, and support and nurture her precious litters long before they ever meet the *WORLD* and their new homes! Linda is all in. She is a hard worker and goes beyond what most won’t do or is required! Her staff is of course no less trained, hard workers, and will do their absolute best in Linda’s grooming business as well. Linda has this type of business covered in the amazing department! She is always studying, researching, and trying to stay ahead of the game. When you become a proud owner she never leaves the clients to figure it out on their own she stays the journey with them until death do part! She is no superwoman (close tho) however, she is absolutely a true business woman doing what she loves deeply with all of her heart. She takes it all very serious with no apologies if not necessary! She is blessed and she knows it with a circle of family, friends and staff that supports her. But she does the hard part!
It doesn’t matter the time or day she is there for her fur babies, new owners, and staff!
When you become a new owner or just want your furry loved one groomed she’s who you need! It will be an experience you will never regret or forget. The experience has been in such a way there are those who have been clients for a very long time or have become owners more than once!
This shoutout is exempted from paid advertisement! I tell you what I know for facts. I am honored to be a witness to all of it weekly! I am not on staff or a lucky owner of any of her babies but I have been around and witnessed three litters and each time Linda gets better and better! I have held, played, and cried about and loved each one of the babies 26 to be exact! While my experience is different than being an owner or a grooming client it’s the same when I see, know, and enjoy each encounter with Linda Kennedy Carr and Providence Labradoodles! I have all the confidence and when I say these things I hope it will serve you well to trust me and I know I can back up each statement!
You are an *AMAZING* person and woman and I am in *AWE* of you! I do believe you are living out your calling and purpose. You inspire me to revive forgotten dreams and have the courage to dream again and go get them!
I Love You!
Winter 2019 - Chickasha, OK
We have added one of their most precious Labradoodles. Millie has been the sweetest, most playful loving puppy. She is well behaved and listens very well. She is by far the best puppy we have ever had! Her temperament is so laid back. My daughter, who is 9, wanted a puppy to take care of and Millie has been perfect for her. She has been easy to potty train with zero accidents in her kennel. She didn't roam at night so she doesn't sleep in the kennel at night! We love her so much!

Linda does such a great job with her puppies! Ruby is from Scarlett and Rosco's litter. She has the sweetest demeanor and is a true gem. Linda takes so much time and effort to make sure that each puppy is well-prepared to go to its forever home. Ruby fit in well with our other doodle, Crew, who is also a Providence Labradoodle from Layla's litter. They are both such great additions to the family and are so fun and loving! I feel extremely lucky to own a Providence Labradoodle!
Winter 2019 - Columbus, Ohio
I was so surprised and amazed at Linda’s care of all the puppies! Truly, we have had several dogs from breeders over the years but have never seen such care and dedication on the part of the breeder. And she has been so available to us. Our puppy, Lincoln is so enjoyable. He’s cute, cuddly and spunky. His training began with Linda and this is making it a smooth process for us. I’ve never thought of having two dogs at the same time. But this experience is making me consider it.
January, 2019 - Lawton, OK
Linda Carr is by far the best! She was very attentive of any questions we had and was always quick to respond. Linda has a true love for her puppies and treats each and every one as though they are a forever member of her family. Ruby came to us well mannered and trained. We could not have asked for a better experience. Ruby has captured our hearts!! Thank you Linda, you're the best!
January 2019 - Lyndhurst, OH
Linda Carr covers all the bases! From beginning to end, she is there every step of the way. I can reach her via text, Facebook or phone call for any little question I have regarding my new pup! She is warm, compassionate, loving and it shows in her puppies. She uses training techniques that helped develop the pups from the start. The puppies are calm, sweet, well-tempered and beautiful! Our baby Lila is a true joy to have in our home! Thank you, Linda and Providence Labradoodles!!
Fall 2016 - Westerville, Ohio
We love our Labradoodle from Linda at Providence Labradoodles! The best, calm, smart, most loving male dog. Very healthy, and loves to be around people. Everywhere we go with him, people ask about our Labradoodle.
Winter 2017 - Groveport
I started out following Linda and her pups on FB and was interested in adding a new puppy to our family. Through that contact and meeting Linda and being at her home and meeting the dogs, my husband and I are the Guardian Home (puppy mom and dad??) to Magnolia I have to tell you, I am a dog lover and what I found in Linda and Providence Labradoodles is exactly that. Her breeding standards are the highest I have ever seen. Her knowledge of the breed and their needs and care (both nutritionally, grooming wise and socially) is immense. But the real reason I recommend Providence Labradoodles is that first and foremost Linda and her Team are dog loving people. Their dogs are family to them and that is what I wanted. A very healthy breed that was a loving and sweet addition to our family. I am very proud to be a small part of the team and I highly recommend Providence Labradoodles.

Harper Lucille is Layla’s very 1st Puppy of her very 1st Litter and we couldn’t LOVE her more if we tried!!! Once it was safe to be around the puppies Linda was very sweet to let me visit them often to help me get my “puppy fix”!!! I planned to wait for a future litter because my son and I did not want to hurt the feelings of our precious 13 year old golden retriever Miss Maggie. Unbeknownst to us, as the weeks passed, BOTH of us had bonded deeply with Harper. We happened to be visiting one evening when the pups were 6 weeks old and another family was present to choose their puppy girl. They were decided on Paisley..... but then one of the little boys said, “Mommy, what about the one with the BLUE collar”? .... WHICH WAS HARPER!!! My son and I looked at each other with HUGE EYES!!! MY HEART STOPPED AND I COULDN’T BREATHE!!! Jonathan proceeded to text me.... MOM, WE HAVE TO GET HER NO MATTER WHAT!!! The sweet part is that Linda had always thought that she should be ours but we had stood in solidarity for 6 weeks that we would LOVE THEM AND LEAVE THEM!!! HARPER HAD STOLEN OUR HEARTS AND WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT UNTIL THERE WAS A THREAT OF LOSING HER!!! Needless to say, she is a precious, pampered, and very loved girl who thinks she is human.... has brought IMMENSE JOY to our lives.... she is RIDICULOUSLY SMART..... A Bit Sassy..... BUT SHE IS ALL KINDS OF SWEET!!!! Linda Loves her dogs like they are her children! Her puppies are raised in her home, they are loved and tended to with such care. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND Linda of Providence Labradoodles to provide you with the newest addition to your family!!!

This is our Jett. The last pup from Layla's 1st litter. We were going to wait and get one later, but after my husband & I stopped by to play with them one afternoon, we called Linda before we even got home and said yes to Jett. One of the BEST decisions we ever made. He is so loving, loves to snuggle and get combed. Also a great protector, I never worry anymore if I'm home alone as long as he is here. He has made our family complete! We LOVE you Jett Black!

When I got Leo in Fall of 2016 I had no idea that I could possibly love an animal as much as I love this dog. Leo is a happy-go-lucky, play-all-day, fun-loving, too-smart-for-his-own-good, goofy guy. He loves to be the center-of-attention and has never met another dog or person he didn't like. Leo has an endless amount of pure, undiscriminating love for everything and everyone. He's a fan-favorite in my neighborhood and local dog park. Leo has truly been a blessing. I recommend Providence Labradoodles to everyone I know. These dogs are precious and kind. I also believe that these doodles are cuter than any other Labradoodles out there (a clearly unbiased opinion). Providence doodles are well-adjusted, smart, great with kids, adorable, and FUN! I am so thankful to have one as a member of my family.

We were blessed to have Crew join our family in the summer of 2015! He looks just like his beautiful mother, Layla and is a joy to all that meet him! The love and care that Linda has for her dogs is heartwarming! They are handled from a young age and loved like there is no other pup on earth! Thank you for having such a passion to bring beautiful, well-mannered dogs to families lucky enough to welcome them to their forever homes!
Spring 2017 - Durham, NC
Our sweet Addison found US in the Spring of 2017! She is from Ben & Layla's litter. She has brought us so much joy and laughter! She loves to play with her sister Bailey and snuggle during naps. Addison is adventurous and is always up for a hike in the woods are a swim in the ponds. She is very well mannered and protective of her sister. Addison even stays "in touch" with Linda through her Facebook & Instagram pages. Thank you, Linda, for choosing us to be Addison's humans! We are furever grateful!
This is Avery/Cooper from Ben and Layla’s spring litter! Our Cooper(Avery) has brought us so much joy. As first time dog owners we could not ask for a better dog. He has adjusted to our family so nicely. My boys adore him. Cooper loves to be outside and has thoroughly enjoyed the snow we have had so far this winter. He loves people and to be tucked into bed at night with his blankets. Linda helped us pick a dog that was right for our family. We love Parti-House Doodles!
Linda is so compassionate and loving to all her pets and to any animal that crosses her path. We have known Linda for many years and when we heard she was going to be breeding her sweet Layla a labradoodle. We knew we wanted to do our best to get one her babies. She worked with us and made it possible for us to bring home our sweet Emma.
Emma is loving, very intelligent and such a wonderful companion to both myself and my spouse. We are so grateful that Linda not only gave Emma such a wonderful start but also that Emma experiences the best care when we take her to Linda’s Grooming Palace. We have grown to fully trust Linda with our Emma, from her earliest beginnings to her current grooming care.
He is the greatest blessing to our family! He is my favorite!! Hopefully he can get a playmate in the next year or so.
It’s amazing how beautiful and well mannered your puppies are!!! You guys are truly incredible. Thank you. He really brings a smile to all of us, all the time.
Grady (Frisco from Ben and Layla’s Fall Litter) just received his first real groom and when his dad went to pick him up, the groomer asked, “Is this a Parti-House Doodle?” Grady’s dad said, “Yeah, he is, how did you know?” the groomer said, “Parti-House Doodles are the best, the breed exceptional Labradoodles, and we could tell Grady must be one of them!”
