I have had problems submitting a review of our puppy so I am sending you these comments to use as you best see fit.

We have had our delightful schnoodle puppy Isabel (Izzy) for six weeks. She is a delight, mellow in temperament, playful, sociable with other dogs and a delight for our younger grand-daughters.  She is healthy and is growing nicely.  She is a beauty with the best of both breeds.  She has taken to training quite rapidly and is almost completely housebroken except for the rare accident.  We have learned to read her clues about when she needs to go out and that helps a lot. 

Setting up our purchase of Izzy was straightforward and simple.  The arrangements for transporting her from MS to CA couldn’t have gone better and the travel crate is now her new bedroom.   The vet commented on how thorough she was prepared with her immunizations and health checkups. 

We think we lucked out when we found her and want to thank you for doing such a sterling job of breeding and raising top dogs for discerning clients.

Happy puppy owner

Like you, I didn’t know who to trust or where to look as we searched for a new puppy. Fortunately, I found Grassy Ridge Kennels and Nelson Groff on puppyfind.com (highly recommend!). Nelson was not pushy. He told me all about the puppy, the parents and how he cares for them. We live near Chicago and he explained the process of shipping from Mississippi. When it came time to ship via United’s PetSafe (also recommend!), he called us a few days earlier and walked us through the process. He made food recommendations and we discussed her health status (she had a check-up right before shipping). He texted me when she shipped and called me that night to see how she was adjusting. I write this because Nelson is truly deserving of the 5 star breeder status he notes on the website. If he has a puppy you like, don’t hesitate to call or text him for information. He will not try to “sell” you. I’m limited to 1000 words here, but happy to respond to anyone via email. Scott S.

We love our puppy

We are so thankful for Grassy Ridge Kennels. They were very helpful in finding us the perfect puppy for our family. They were kind and patient. We highly recommend this breeder to anyone that is looking for a great pet.

Proud Owner of Pom Puppy Kim

I purchased my Pom literally online. I called Grassy Ridge and the owner was fabulous. We talked about a lot of things and he sent me extra pictures. I have NEVER purchased a puppy over the Internet; however, Grassy Ridge was definitely a great find. My vet told me that he had not seen a puppy in such excellent condition in a very long time. I am a lucky girl and next puppy, I will be sure to call Grassy Ridge first. If your puppy comes from them, you won’t be sorry and the prices are reasonable. They took great care sending her to me through “Pet Safe” with United Airlines. I’d never heard of a puppy going across the country but she was perfect. They took great care of her and she had a great crate with food, water, blanket and all her paperwork. Thank you again Grassy Ridge for giving me a great puppy to 💕

Excellent from Beginning to End

Nelson was excellent. From the very first email and phone call, all the way to the very end. He answered all of my questions and kept me up to date every step of the way. I had to have my puppy shipped to GA and there were very bad thunderstorms that night which caused the flights to be delayed several times and Nelson kept me up to date with every detail along the way. I got the exact puppy I wanted and he is very healthy and happy. I would definitely purchase from Grassy Ridge Kennels/Nelson again and have already recommended them to friends who are interested in purchasing a new puppy. Thanks again Nelson for everything!

Great Breeder

I had the best experience with Grassyridge Kennels. My puppy arrived in great condition and the owner was extremely conscientious and helpful. I received many texts and phone calls to follow up on Casey’s arrival and paperwork. They are a wonderful family breeder💗🐾🐾

Christmas Yorkiepoo

Nelson was amazing throughout the whole process. Our yorkiepoo flew up to NY and delivered by Santa. He did amazing on the flight and is home thriving with our family. He has acclimated great. Nelson is professional, polite and patient. He keeps you posted ebery step of the way and checks in after delivery. He is very responsive throughout the process. Nelson made this the least stressful transaction during a stressful time of the year. Grassy Ridge was great

 Great Experience

We had such a great experience with Grassy Ridge Kennels. I called Nelson to inquire about a cavachon puppy and he kept me updated throughout the whole process. He even called me when the momma was having her litter and let us reserve our girl right when she was born. He sent me the cutest pictures each week and was patient with all of our questions. You can tell his family truly cares about the dogs and wants to make this a great experience for puppy parents. We went home with a big bag of food, a toy, training resources. I would recommend them to anyone. We love our Maggie girl!

Best experience ever

Grassy Ridge Kennels was exceptional to work wiith.I’ll be honest with you, wasn’t real crazy about buying a puppy online, but after much research and talking with breeder, I knew I was in good hands. Breeder talked me through everything from the very beginning until our puppy was in our arms. Believe when I say, I did my research and there are some bad breeders out there. Nelson, was great to work with, he is very invested in what he does and he does it well, Very ethical and follows great practices to produce a healthy happy puppy. We had to have our little guy shipped and Nelson (breeder) stayed in touch with me through the whole flight, so I knew exactly where puppy was and when he landed up until he was in our arms. I highly reccomend this breeder he was exceptional.

Nothing short of an amazing experience, I would give Grassy Ridge Kennels 10 stars if I could! They were amazing people who were extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Not to mention our amazing cockapoo Levi, who is absolutely wonderful! If you are looking for a dog raised by a loving family and not just anyone, these are your people!

Adorable Mini Schnauzer

We love the sweet Mini Schnauzer we bought from Nelson! He was very helpful in answering the questions we had about the breed and recommending what he thought would work well for us. She arrived healthy and with everything we needed to get her settled in to her new home, including a few of her favorite familiar toys! He was prompt in making travel arrangements and communicated clearly throughout the transaction.

Great Breeder, thoughtful and helpful

Grassy Ridge Kennels has been wonderful. We received our bundle of joy late at night after 2 long plane rides. She arrived in great shape despite the 12 hours of travel. We didn’t want to transport her but we fell in love with that sweet face and the breeder seemed very competent. The breeder showed concern with numerous calls and emails. He even checked with us late in the night to ensure we knew her flight was delayed 🙁 I recommend this kennel.

Nelson was fantastic to work with. I started talking to him about a Bichpoo before they were conceived. My baby Bailey was born on June 26,2020 and we picked her up a week ago. I would tell anyone who is looking for a puppy to check with Nelson at Grassy Ridge Kennels. Bailey has fit right in and she is super smart. She loves everyone and is not afraid of anything. It is very clear that she played we people at a young age. If you want a small dog go to Grassy Ridge Kennels. You will not be disappointed.

A excellent new place to get that new puppy. Grassy Ridge Kennel will always be our place to go if we ever need another family member! The Graff’s are awesome people and the vet we took our new Havanese puppy too gave nothing but praise on how they run their kennel. We could not be more happier!

Nelson is truly a good quality honest breeder. Our puppy arrived happy and healthy. He was definitely socialized at an early age. Nelson truly cares about these dogs and they are well taken care of!!

I had a great experience dealing with Nelson Groff, the breeder at Grassy Ridge Kennels. He provided me with a number of references – both customer and veterinary contacts. All the people I spoke to had excellent comments about this breeder. Communication with Mr. Groff was easy, friendly, honest and detailed. My chiweenie puppy was flown to me and I picked him up at the airport. The puppy did well and the transport was flawless. Grassy Ridge Kennels puts the health and well-being of the puppies as their first priority and backs that with excellent service to their clients. Took my new pup in for his first wellness check yesterday. Everything was perfect! Very happy!

I want to say how pleased I am with my whole experience with Nelson and Grassy Ridge. Nelson stayed in communication with me the entire time I was waiting for Dawson now (Bash) to be ready to bring home. He answered all my questions as well as sent pictures and videos. When we met for pick up he explained everything to me, sent home food and a toy and was so polite. Bash is adorable, healthy and doing great. I highly recommend Grassy Ridge to anyone looking for a healthy well taken care of puppy!

We love our sweet Cavachon. Bruno, now called Fletcher, is so loving, playful, and entertaining. His has the best personality and has never met stranger (adults, kids, or animals). We can’t remember life without him!

    We just got this beautiful puppy. Nelson was amazing when he met us to drop off the dog. We immediately fell in love with our new addition to the family. This company is 100% AMAZING. 5 stars all the way.


    We are so happy with our beautiful baby puppy. Nelson and his wife so awesome. We took Bree to the vet this morning. The vet was so impressed. Everyone that sees her fall in 💘. Thank you Grassy Ridge for your professionalism and care.

    Update Review: Bash (Dawson) is doing great. Eating well, full of energy and enjoying his new home. I had to contact Nelson this morning and he was so helpful. I can’t say enough good things about him as a breeder and the babies you get. I have friends in line now for puppies! Thank you Grassy Ridge!

    We are in love with our Cockapoo from Grassy Ridge. We’ve had her for over 2 months and she has a gentle and calm temperament. We couldn’t have found a sweeter puppy for our family. She also loves to play and zoom around the house too. Thank you and we may have to adopt another cockapoo as a mate in the future

    Simply amazing!!!! Grassy Ridge Kennels helped us find the perfect baby for our home. We are all completely obsessed with her. People stop us everywhere we go asking where she came from. I highly recommend purchasing from this amazing kenenl
