We are thrilled to take our newest member of our family home! Our experience with Great Oaks has been wonderful. Jill does a marvelous job of keeping the adopting families up to date on the puppies progress and sending out adorable pictures. The Carter family will gladly go home and share our experience with our friends and family!
What a great experience to add a beautiful fur baby to our family. Bailey is beautiful and we can't wait to watch her grow! Working with Justin and Jill throughout this process has been flawless. They love what they do and pass their beautiful puppies on to new families. Thank you so much for everything!

I decided to get another puppy after I lost my Golden in September. I had looked at several places and always came back to Great Oaks Kennel. I called and was greeted by Jill who told me all about the puppies she had available. I made my decision that day and sent my deposit. From that point Jill always kept me informed about my puppy Sadie and always sending pictures. I would highly recommend Great Oaks Kennel to anyone looking to buy a new puppy.

After doing extensive research on dog breeders, I was absolutely set on Great Oaks. The Murray's are an amazing family and take pride in what they do. When looking for a puppy/breeder I wanted someone who knew exactly what they were doing, took very good care of the puppies, and was a family rather than a store front. When I got in contact with them, they made sure my entire experience was easy as if I was in their home experiencing the entire birth and eight weeks with them. It excited me even more when I came across the fact they are a God loving family and will accept you into their family as their own. Overall, I am in awe of how amazing Great Oaks is and will definitely recommend them to anyone and everyone!
I cannot say thank you enough to Jill and the Murray family for the wonderful experience I had when finding our Ava girl. I began my search for the perfect German Shepherd female pup through PuppyFind.com which led me to their website. I immediately submitted an online inquiry about their litter and Jill responded not long after. We exchanged emails and text messages with photos and videos of the pups I had my eye on. Jill was always quick to respond or provide a timeframe in which she would be available to get back to me. When she sent me a picture of “white bow female” I instantly fell in love with our Ava girl. I placed my deposit soon after and waited anxiously at home for the two weeks to pass before we could meet our pup. During that time, Jill stayed in touch and provided updates, pictures, and videos of our Ava until we could get her. Finally came the morning to bring Ava home.. and it was well worth the 10 hour commute to and from Dallas! Jill and her wonderful family welcomed us into their home and it was love at first puppy kiss from Ava. Ava is as equally sweet and cuddly as she is playful. My intentions for purchasing her were to grow up as a companion to my 2.5 year old son. They have been glued to one another ever since she arrived home! I would absolutely recommend Great Oaks Kennel to anyone searching for an amazing and perfect German Shepherd. We look forward to many happy years with our Ava girl.”
Our family had a wonderful experience working with Great Oaks Kennel. Once we contacted them and found out they had just what we were hoping for, we were thrilled! They kept in contact, sent us pictures, posted videos, all of which made us excited and prepared for our puppy. Jill made sure that we had a valuable experience allowing our family to spend time meeting the perfect match. Watching our kids pick out and bond with our puppy is something we'll never forget. We are so happy with our female Labradoodle, Penny and we feel like she is the perfect addition to our family. We feel thankful for the professional experience and the delicate care the family at Great Oaks Kennel provided for Penny in the first 8 weeks of her life.

I highly recommend Great Oaks Kennel. Our Charlie (Labradoodle) was flown to California. From the minute I called to inquire about him till the day he arrived I was kept informed, pictures sent and I never had a concern. Everything went as promised. He is beautiful, smart, funny and very loving. He has quite a personality. I know people are concerned about buying dogs on the internet, but I can't say enough how smooth everything went. I would recommend everyone check out their website and don't be at all concerned about buying a puppy from Great Oaks Kennel.
The Hastreiters- Bartlesville, OK
Ehvey has been a wonderful addition to our home and we're thrilled with the newest member of our family. Working with you and Justin was such a pleasant experience and it was so reassuring to know Ehvey came from a place where she was so loved and well cared for. I would imagine she'll be needing a sister sooner rather than later, and I can't imagine getting a dog from anywhere other than Great Oaks Kennel. I know it's trendy to "adopt, not shop," but we consider our pets to be true members of our family, and just as we provided excellent prenatal care to our children, my wife and I are most comfortable knowing our dogs' lineage and that she spent her first weeks of life being thoroughly loved by both her mother and "people." God has truly blessed your family and we're so grateful you chose to pass this blessing along with others through breeding. We'll certainly keep in touch and thank you so much for being such thoughtful and supportive individuals.
We are so thankful and grateful that we decided to adopt our goldendoodle from Great Oaks Kennel. Thank you for providing us with a healthy, vibrant, and beautiful little girl. From the beginning y'all have been informative, helpful, and kind. Thank you for keeping me updated throughout the whole process, it made this experience very personable. In the future, if we decide to add another fur baby to our family, we will definitely choose Great Oaks Kennel again! All thumbs up to the Murray family and Great Oaks Kennel!
I am thrilled with my experience with Great Oaks Kennel. They have been fabulous to do business with. I’m makes me so happy to be able to purchase our new puppy from a family owned business, with such great family and faith driven values. Jill was so sweet to work with, and Justin was extremely professional, honest and kind. I love how they have shared pictures and videos as our puppy has been growing. What a gift! We are so grateful to have come across such a lovely family to buy our golden retriever from.
Although I had not been planning long term for a puppy, the way that my daughter Hadyn had, the purchase of a puppy came as a sweet surprise. About one month ago, I accompanied Hadyn to select her puppy and learned that one of the litter mates would be available. I had always wanted to have a dog that could potentially be a therapy dog and it seemed a golden retriever would be the perfect breed. After expressing my sudden interest, I received great follow up and communication from Great Oaks. I have received weekly photos and videos of my pup and prompt communication to answer any questions I may have regarding “Dunkin”. I was so pleased to see their girls loving on, playing with, and even calling my pup the name I have chosen for him. I am thankful for the opportunity to have him join my family and possibly be a blessing to others, through therapy visits, in the future.
I had such an amazing experience getting my Goldendoodle puppy from Great Oaks Kennel! I put down my deposit two months in advance and I got nothing but the best feedback. Justin and Jill are awesome about communication and keeping you updated with pictures of your future baby. I would always look forward to Mondays because I would receive the cutest pictures of my future little baby! Words cannot express the happiness that I have after purchasing my Goldendoodle from Great Oaks Kennel. If I could do it again, I would in a heart beat. I strongly recommend GOK for buying a puppy!
I would 100% recommend Great Oaks Kennel. Throughout the entire process they answered all of my questions and updated me on my goldendoodle. I am a bit picky, and had been searching for about a year for my perfect goldendoodle. I can honestly say I could not be happier! The Murray family has a beautiful place for the puppies and they are so loving and caring. They send pictures from when they're born to when you get to take them home. Believe me when I say they are so much cuter in person! My experience with Great Oaks Kennel was extraordinary!
It was a great experience picking a dog from Great Oaks Kennel. They were friendly people and take great care of their dogs, they treat them like family.
Great Oaks Kennel is unlike any other. I contacted many breeders in hopes of finding the perfect one to adopt my sweet puppy from. I miraculously came across these guys, and have never felt so thankful. The process has been amazing… you get updated pictures each week, a puppy pick out day, and the owners of Great Oaks Kennel are always available to talk and answer any questions (which I had a lot of). I pick up my little guy this week, and I have truly never been so excited. This process would have never been this amazing if I did not use Great Oaks Kennel. I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for everything!! Levi, I cant wait to see you!!!!

We purchased from Great Oaks, an absolutely sweet, beautiful, loving, gentle female Golden Retriever. From the start of our contact with Jill and Justin Murray to picking up our puppy, the Murray's and their children couldn't have been more committed to working with us to answer all of our many questions, immediately contacting us and keeping us informed (including sending puppy photographs) all along the way.
The Kennel, which we were invited to visit prior to purchasing, and then picking up our puppy, is a clean, safe, wide-open environment for the puppies. Aside from the caliber of the breeder, we look to select how much the breeder cares for their dogs and the puppies that are born. The Murray's whole family are loving and caring people.... that is so special and we can't be grateful enough for their personal and professional efforts and care.
The Bondys-Tulsa, Ok
Great Oaks Kennel is just amazing! I recommend them 100%. Our baby Gryffin is so perfect and well taken care of. They kept me updated on him all the time, which made this whole process very enjoyable! Thank you so much!

The decision to become a pet owner is a big one. And if you're like us, we wanted to get a sweet family pet in the breed and gender we were hoping for. From an amazing breeder, who loved animals as much as we do who would guide us through this new family experience. Great Oaks Kennel is exactly that! You can not find people as professional, kind and helpful as The Murray's. From the moment we reached out Jill was wonderful to work with and sent weekly updates on the health and growth of our furry little love! She even asked us what we planned on naming our puppy so they could start calling her by name before puppy pick up day! The whole process is easy, exciting and absolutely one decision you won't regret!
The experience with Great Oaks has been amazing! Jill answered all of our questions prior to the purchase and even guided us to a breed that better matched what we needed as a family. The weekly updates are great, with pictures of our puppy. It's hard to find reputable breeders and Great Oaks is well worth the drive. We could not recommend them more!
The Woodards-Dallas, TX
We have truly enjoyed our purchase process with Great Oaks Kennel. Justin and Jill have been very personable and helpful with every question we have had and have kept us informed about our puppy through the wait. We are so happy about our decision to get our new puppy from Great Oaks Kennel!
Great Oaks is a fantastic, dog loving family. They are very easy to work with, enjoyable to talk to and take great care of their puppies. It has been a wonderful experience adopting a puppy from them!
The Welshs-Irving, TX
The Murray’s are the most incredible family! Every puppy is loved dearly and they receive so much hands on attention.
We are so happy that we found Great Oaks. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and were so pleased with how many updates and pictures we received along the way. We have wanted a Golden Retriever for 5 years and I am so glad that we found the perfect one. I would highly recommend anyone searching for a puppy to choose Great Oaks Kennel!!

The service at Great Oaks Kennel is excellent. We feel absolutely comfortable referring our friends and family. Jill was perfect in communication skills. The puppies were beautiful and healthy. Their family farm is a perfect environment for breeding and raising puppies. I would absolutely recommend Great Oaks Kennels. We wanted to take home the entire litter. Our favorite were the Labradoodles! We are forever grateful for Jill, her husband and family. Superior service. Much Love!
The Ospinas-Little Rock, AR
When we were finally ready to bring our first ever furry friend home, we were on the lookout for someone who fostered a warm and welcoming home and to our immense pleasure, we found Great Oaks Kennel online. We went through their website at length and spent a long time reading all the glowing testimonies. The connection with this family begins on their website and just gets better with time. We loved how neat and detailed their website is. We didn’t take long to decide that we wanted to bring our puppy home from Great Oaks Kennel.
We were able to have a quick conversation with Jill before putting down a deposit online. She helped us understand the process and shared pictures & videos with us all along, until the day we brought our little one home. The Murray’s are wonderful people and the entire experience has been a great one for us. They gave us all the time we needed to pick our puppy. They patiently answered all the questions we had as new parents. We were able to relax at home knowing our boy was in good hands until he was ready to come home to us. We highly recommend Great Oaks to prospective puppy owners.

Our experience with Great Oaks Kennel was amazing. Justin and Jill were so accommodating for us when trying to schedule a time to pick out and pick up our puppy since we live over three hours away. They sent us pictures every week so we could see what our newest family member was up too! They guided us through the whole process and answered all our questions that we had since this is our first time getting a dog. All the puppies are high quality and we would recommend them to anyone looking to get a puppy!
The Hutchings- Houston, TX
"Our family absolutely loves our puppy, Bella. She has proven to be a very intelligent and well mannered dog. The Great Oaks Kennel family took great care of us, keeping us informed through out the litter's birth and early days. We highly recommend Great Oaks Kennel!"
We recently took home a little goldendoodle pup from Great Oaks Kennel. We couldn't have been more pleased with how helpful and delightful the Murray Family was through the whole process. To our family, the best well-being of the dogs is paramount, above all else. We never felt like GOK, as the breeder, put their "business" or bottom-line above what is best for the puppies. They helped us problem-solve related to our complicated circumstances/schedule in picking up our puppy. Our little sweetie is now home with us and our 5yr old goldendoodle and we could not be more delighted!
The McClures-Vinita, OK
We had a wonderful experience with Great Oaks from start to finish. They were excellent communicators throughout the process. From the time the litter was born, we received pictures and videos of the puppies at least once a week. These alone revealed the time, attention, and care Jill and Justin put into their pups. They were also extremely flexible. We traveled to their home three times and Jill was accommodating with every visit. They never rushed us and spent time introducing us to all their dogs. Friendly and professional-we highly recommend Great Oaks!
From the very beginning, we knew Great Oaks was the perfect choice for us. The communication with Jill and Justin amazing. They answered all the questions we had right away! The puppies start their lives with such a loving family and a perfect setting to be raised in. It was so hard for us to pick our sweet boy since they were all so sweet but we didn't feel rushed and we able to take our time! We would refer all of our friends and family to Great Oaks Kennel! And we have since my parents are getting a puppy of their own now! Thank you so much to Jill, Justin and their family!
The Sullivans - Bethune, SC
Our experience with Great Oaks was outstanding. I did a lot of research when looking for our first puppy and Great Oaks was by far the best. I felt a connection while reading about their family and how they take care of their dogs and I instantly knew they were who we needed to choose. They were great at communicating every step of the way. Jill was always answering my questions and she made the experience very personal. Every time I was sent a picture our pup, Archer, I almost cried. He is the most beautiful puppy I have ever seen. I can’t wait to watch him grow up and for him to be a part of our family. Thank you to the Great Oaks family for everything you do and how you take care of your animals.
We cannot even begin to express how thankful we are for the Murrays at Great Oaks Kennel. This is our first puppy so of course we had tons of questions! Justin & Jill were quick to answer any question & they were so helpful with everything. They are really wonderful people. Their farm is an absolute dream for all those puppies & when I first saw our little guy I immediately knew they love & care for all their puppies like their own. We got pretty lucky with our little (for now) puppy. We are forever grateful for Justin & Jill. Clifford has truly completed our little family!

When deciding I wanted to buy and own my first dog, I immediately knew I wanted to find the perfect breeder, one I trusted, and one I felt confident in, when purchasing a new member of the family. Great Oaks Kennel immediately stood out to me and how well they were organized, and their love and care for their dogs. As soon as I contacted them, the Murray’s were more than informational about the process and what to expect and look forward to if I were to chose them as the breeder I would be getting my new four legged friend from. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Getting to see pictures from the time to their born, every week up until they come home was my favorite part. At five weeks old, we got to go meet and pick out our future four legged friend! This was a great way to get to know Wrigley before he even came home yet.. Great Oak’s is more than transparent with you about any information you need to know or would like to know about your future pet! I would do it all over again the same. For anyone looking for a high quality, trustworthy, breeder, and a fun process of bringing a new dog into your home, Great Oaks is for you!

Our experience with Great Oaks Kennel far exceeded our expectations. Everything from start to finish was very easy and convenient.

I also enjoyed the easy communication and pictures we received weekly to keep us updated on our puppy’s progress.

I love my puppy I got from Great Oaks Kennel. I really appreciated how Jill sent me updates and pictures of my Winnie growing before she was ready to come home. She's the perfect addition to our little family!
The Harts-Wichita Falls, TX
I can't imagine finding a better breeder than Great Oaks Kennel!! From the very beginning, Justin and Jill were so kind in answering all of our questions and updated us as our Ellie Mae was born and also sent us pictures and videos until we were able to bring our baby pup home. It was truly such an amazing and bonding experience to share in all that and see how she had grown week to week. Our Ellie Mae is the sweetest new addition to our family and we couldn't be happier! We are amazed by her smartness and how much she has learned over the past month since we brought her home. She is so affectionate and wants to be wherever we are at all times. We are so in love and thank Justin and Jill for all the love and care they gave her for her first few months. I highly recommend Great Oaks and would not use any other breeder when we decide to add another pup to our family.
Just a few personal messages from some of our families about their puppies and their experience with Great Oaks Kennel.
I put a deposit down on a dog before she was prego! The process was easy and they kept us up to date through the entire process with tons of picture updates. We got to bring the entire family to pick out our puppy! They started using his name as soon as we decided what it would be. We love our puppy! Highly recommended.
The Lorenzens-Tulsa, OK
My husband and I cannot begin to describe the impact our puppy Phog has had on our lives in the three weeks since we picked him up. Simply put, he is perfect! We had a long drive home after picking Phog up but he connected with us—and us with him—right away. He is such a joyful little pup who loves to run and play and nap at our feet. We are so thankful that we were able to find Great Oaks Kennel. When we finally decided to get a dog, I spent hours reading the “About Us” section on every breeder's webpage. It was very important to us to make sure we found breeders who valued what we valued and would take care of our puppy until we could get him. Something about the Murray’s felt right. Jill and Justin were so great in patiently answering every question we had. We love that Phog was born into a family with children and has played with them from the start. We would choose Great Oaks again in a heartbeat.
To say we have had a great experience with Great Oaks Kennel is an understatement. We knew we wanted a Golden Retriever in our lives and when we found Great Oaks Kennel it seemed to be a good choice. Their website was beyond informative and from the moment I contacted Justin & Jill they were extremely helpful. The response time was incredible and the communication was constant whether it was through e-mail, phone or text. They have been accommodating and very informative throughout the process. While it is obvious that communication was constant and timely, their dedication to these puppies and love for animals was even more evident as time went on. We are receiving our puppy, Samson, from a home that is surrounded by caring and loving individuals--Justin, Jill, and their children. The wait is finally over and we are beyond thrilled to welcome Samson into our home. We cannot thank Great Oaks Kennel enough for their quality service and recommend them to anyone looking to welcome a puppy into their family.
The Collins - Houston, TX
Great Oaks Kennel is an amazing breeder for quality puppies that are ready to go home with their families at 8 weeks! Justin and Jill are great about keeping you updated on all the pictures and information you could possibly need. They are very accommodating and will make sure you have the best experience in buying your puppy. I also really appreciate the letter they send home with you and your puppy. It is an important part of the whole process, and I really appreciated it. I cannot recommend Great Oaks Kennel enough! When we get our next goldendoodle, it will definitely be through them again.
After many years of looking for a dog of this caliber, I finally found Great Oaks Kennel. They were knowledgeable about the breed and the kennels are top of the line! I am so happy with my puppy that words aren't enough! Thank you!

Testimonies & Referrals
Getting our puppy from Great Oaks Kennel has been one of the best decisions we’ve made. I looked for many months to find a place that I thought would be loving, kind, and knowledgeable on Golden Retrievers. I wanted our puppy to come from a place that felt like home and would raise him similar to how we will raise him. Great Oaks Kennel was that place. Justin and Jill both were so helpful and did a great job at answering my questions. This is our first dog that we’re owning, we’ve had family dogs, but this is our first dog so we’ve had a lot of questions and they’ve both been so helpful and patient with us. I loved the weekly updates from Jill, and once we picked our puppy the photos of our little guy made me so excited and happy! I feel so happy with our choice to get our little guy from Great Oaks Kennel! I can’t recommend them enough!
The Bowies-Vinita, OK
Jill and Justin made this an easy process. We are very excited to have our new furry family member! Great Oaks Kennel has been so helpful all along the way. We decided to add to our family after coming with our daughter to pick up her furry baby! It was love at first sight. I would definitely recommend using Great Oaks!
As we were beginning our puppy search, an acquaintance described their wonderful experience with Great Oaks Kennel and we knew we wanted to check them out. After our first visit, we were sold! From their kennel operations, beautiful property, and wonderful dogs, we knew this is where we wanted to get our puppy. We put our deposit down for the next litter. From that first visit through puppy pick up day, they made the process easy, comfortable, and very exciting. Our girls loved getting photos and updates so we could watch as our puppy grew! Thank you Great Oaks for providing the newest member of our family! We will definitely be recommending you!
We had an amazing experience picking out our puppy Bentley! The family is absolutely amazing to work with and they take wonderful care of the puppies. They also have an amazing home where they raise the puppies to give them plenty of room to run around and play. We have to wait 3 more weeks to pick up our baby and we can't wait to get back here to take him home! This family is truly amazing with these puppies and raise them as a part of the family! I would refer all my closest friends and family to Great Oaks Kennel for any one looking for a puppy!
We are so happy we went with Great Oaks Kennel for our new puppy. The whole process was smooth and Jill and Justin make it fun. We were given multiple updates when the puppies were born, and Jill sent over many photos periodically so that we could see the puppies. The home where the puppies are raised is beautiful and the puppies are well cared for, handled regularly, and very friendly. I highly recommend Great Oaks Kennel!
We have been a Golden Retriever loving family for almost 15 years and the challenge is finding a quality breeder who you can trust. The Murrays have been awesome to work with. They are quick to respond to questions and are knowledgeable of the breed. They have made the decision and purchasing process very easy and their 3 year health guarantee goes beyond what a lot of other breeders provide. As we get ready to pick up our puppy we know we are in good hands.
When I called about their German Shepherd puppies from Great Oak Kennel, Justin contacted me back right away. He answered all questions that I asked him. I felt confident in Great Oaks when he answered my questions about temperament of his puppies. I looked very carefully on every site to look for that perfect pet for my family and I. I had 10 German Shepherd puppies on my mind and forgot them all when I found Great Oaks Kennel. Justin's videos really took to heart when I pinpointed my baby Max. Max is gentle to all of my daughters. He greets all family members at the door. Potty training was a breeze. He has a very high IQ when it comes to learning. Max learned 3 commands in less than 10 minutes each day, which caught me by surprise. You may go online to find a German Shepherd puppy for the price of $3000 to $5000 with champion bloodline & showlines, but you can't find a better place at a better price than Great Oaks Kennel. I'd like to thank Justin and Jill Murray and their daughters for taking the time on making Max a well behaved puppy.
P.S. - You made my job easy.
I just wanted to take a moment to say how very excited I am to pick up my “baby” this weekend. Myself and my family have always been dog people and dealt with several breeders. This will be my third golden:) Great Oaks Kennel has BY FAR been the best I’ve ever dealt with. My cousin actually got a puppy from them a couple of months ago and referred them to me. Their facilities are amazing. I see now that the puppies might not to ever want to leave! The communication has been amazing. They even sent several pictures to me of my girl! I highly recommend Jill and Justin at Great Oaks Kennel.
The Merriams- Joplin, MO
This has been a wonderful experience. Jill, Justin, and their entire family have been great to meet and work with. They clearly love their puppies and treat them like family. We would strongly recommend a puppy from Great Oaks-we know we will love our Goldendoodle.
Our experience with Great Oaks has been absolutely wonderful. Jill and Justin went out of their way to keep us a part of the process from day one. We received pictures of our little girl right after she was born, and have been getting weekly (sometimes even more often) picture and video updates ever since. We live a little over 8 hours away, so we didn't get to meet our pup until pick up day, but because of the extra effort put forth by Jill and Justin, we didn't feel left out.
Beyond keeping us included in this process, they've done an outstanding job caring for our little girl while she developed. We did a ton of research and had a lot of criteria that we were looking for when selecting a breeder. From our first phone call, they were very open and honest about their entire process; even saying that maybe their dogs weren't for us when we mentioned that genetic testing certificates were something we required. The fact that they were willing to lose business to make sure their puppies were exactly what we were looking for was what set them above all of the other breeders we were considering. That kind of commitment to their values and quality has made them wonderful caregivers for our little girl as she grew. Their dedication to the puppies spending at least 8 weeks with mom before going home, and the weening schedule they have in place proves that they have the puppies' health and happiness at the forefront of their business. They've truly set our little girl up to have a happy and healthy life, and we could not have made a better choice of who to put our faith in for this process. We can't recommend them enough
The Avials- Desoto, TX
Thank you to the entire Murray Family at Great Oaks Kennel for our wonderful puppy! We are in Chicago and our Labradoodle pup was flown to us via United Airlines Pet Safe Program! Thank you to the Murray's for their guidance through this process! When he arrived it was obvious they had taken loving care of him. As we waited for his arrival we received lots of pictures and videos of his happy days at the Murray's with their kids and his puppy siblings!! Our little "Monty" has a wonderful demeanor, is strong and healthy, and as you can see, is growing by leaps and bounds!! Thank you! Thank you!
The Barrett Family
It was a pleasure working with Justin and family on the purchase of our granddaughter’s first pet. She was excited throughout the entire process. The process was very easy and we were kept updated on Bella Rose’s growth and received pics often. So thankful to this family for our beautiful golden retriever.
The Tabors-Oklahoma City
Words cannot express the joy and happiness our family has experienced from the beautiful puppy we purchased from Great Oaks. From the time we made a deposit on a puppy, we received regular feedback on the health and status of the the puppies, inclusive of photos. Great Oaks is a family run business and we enthusiastically recommend them to prospective puppy owners. We truly are grateful for the blessing we have in Charlie. Thanks Great Oaks!
We adopted our German Shepherd, Bear, in February of this year. He is now 6 months old and 63 pounds - and growing! He is such a joy to our family! He is so smart and gentle with all of us, including my three young kids and many neighborhood kids. He is also super funny! He’s been easy to train and really is just a super easy, dream puppy! He’s our big baby! We love him so much!
Justin and Jill were awesome to work with! They gave us a healthy, happy, incredible new family member. We were quite pleased and happy with the level of professionalism, knowledge, and friendliness we received. They kept us updated with news and pictures of our puppy prior to taking him home! They answered any questions we ever had promptly and politely! We really appreciate them and are so thankful to have found them and our sweet, Bear! He’s the perfect addition to our family! We would absolutely recommend Great Oaks Kennel and would absolutely come back in the future!
We found an ad for Great Oaks Kennel on the AKC marketplace and really appreciated the fact that the puppies grow up in such a happy, loving, family environment. We emailed Justin for more information and received a call from him that day. He was so open and welcoming about the process so we felt confident to move forward from there. After putting down a deposit, we heard almost immediately from Jill via text and she continued to be extremely communicative throughout the entire process. We are from Washington, DC so we had Quinn shipped to us via the petsafe program. We were a little apprehensive about it at first because we were not able to meet the puppy before she was sent to us. But Jill sent pictures, videos, updates and made us feel like we were watching our sweet Quinn grow. We picked her up from the airport and she was safe and happy. She has fit into our family without skipping a beat and seems so happy and well cared for. We are so appreciative of Jill, Justin and the whole Murray family for raising Quinn in such a loving environment and would definitely recommend them to others near or far from Oklahoma.

Working with Great Oaks Kennel was a great decision! We wanted a German Shepherd puppy that was healthy and from a great family where she would be raised by loving breeders and tons of children. As a result, our Athena does so well with kids and she's easily trainable, loving, and the sweetest puppy we could ask for. Great Oaks Kennel answered any question we had and worked with us when we couldn't come to get her right away. I would highly recommend getting your new pet from this breeder. When we get our next German Shepherd, we will definitely be coming back to them!
We must share our wonderful experience throughout the process. Our family traveled from Austin, Texas to pick up our Rizzo, and every moment was well worth it. Justin and Jill were excellent from day one. Our communication was great, especially considering the distance between. We were very particular during our search. Upon finding Great Oaks, they definitely exceeded all expectations. Justin and Jill have acted with extreme professionalism with a genuine and personable touch. We have all intentions to recommend everyone to Great Oaks. Thank you guys for introducing us to Rizzo. We already love her!
It would be tough for me to say a single negative thing regarding our experience with Justin and Jill at Great Oaks Kennel. As soon as I put my deposit down for our male golden retriever puppy, I spoke with both Jill and Justin within a matter of hours. They treated me with nothing but respect, despite this being our first dog. The day we visited the puppies were all perfect and it was a difficult decision, but in the best way, because they were all so cute! We now have our beautiful puppy and we feel so blessed. Great Oaks Kennel is very professional and the right choice if you are looking for your next four-legged companion.

Just arrived home from a checkup with my vet.... my baby is in GREAT health !! The vet loved his feisty attitude (something we heard from Justin weeks ago). This was a great experience and they kept us updated with pictures and videos from the day he was born. All my friends watched his progress along with us, but it was a surprise for my family, and oh what a surprise! Thank you so much.... oh yeah... his name is Bootsy.

My family and I are so thrilled we found Great Oaks Kennel for our new furbaby! I searched and researched as many golden retriever breeders in Oklahoma and surrounding areas that I could find. The customer reviews, quick response from Justin & Jill, and the environment & love their dogs and the puppies receive really sealed the deal for us. We loved getting pics of the puppies throughout the 8 weeks and had a great experience both over phone, email, and in person when picking out our girl. We would definitely recommend using Great Oaks Kennel for other families looking to add a Golden Retriever or other breed offered by Great Oaks Kennel to their family.
We have had a wonderful experience with Great Oaks Kennel! After lots of research, we decided to add a Golden Retriever to our family. The Murrays have been very responsive and have done everything possible to make our experience great. Our favorite part about finding the perfect dog has been the weekly updates. We have looked forward to them every Monday and always drop what we’re doing to check up on our puppy!

The Great Oaks Kennel is one of the best we have had the pleasure of dealing with; from the beginning they have answered our inquiries from email one. They are upfront about everything and if they did not cover something in a text or email that one may need answered, just ask. They take the time to give you weekly updates with photos of the pups, which no one I have found during our hunt for a kennel/breeder does. Most of all when you meet them and see their place, their kids and their dogs, one can see that they are in this for the love of the animal and not to flip a quick buck. The pup we are getting is a good looking male and we are so exited to bring him home. Hope this helps in some way, promise you won’t regret it.
This letter is a written recommendation of Great Oaks Kennel from whom we purchased our puppy Hotshot. I cannot say enough about this life changing experience.
Bringing a puppy into a home was a huge commitment and one my entire family was involved in. This was to be our son (6) and daughter’s (8) first dog and after a year of pleading we began the process of researching the best possible match for our family. We finally narrowed it down to a Goldendoodle for a variety of reasons, but mainly being a non-shedding dog. I contacted Great Oaks Kennels and received a call the very next day! Their professionalism shone through right away. They wanted to know about our family, anything I could tell them to help make a match. When we arrived at Great Oaks, it was a beautiful place! The Murray’s were so kind and welcoming. They could sense our excitement and nervousness about getting a new puppy. They were so patient and their children were great helping our little ones learn about puppy’s!
To this day we look back at the other options we had and say we were so fortunate that Great Oaks guided us through the process of puppy ownership. Hotshot was the perfect match for our family. She is one of the best things to happen in our life. She is gentle, loving and very playful towards our kids. A perfect fit for our family! We thank the Murray’s for this great experience! I will continue recommending Great Oaks Kennels for Goldendoodles!
Great Oaks Kennel absolutely rocks! It's a small family run business in rural Oklahoma that clearly puts the animals first. They are a wonderful family and they take their time to help you find just the right puppy for your family. I highly recommend them!

We had wonderful experience picking out our golden retriever puppy from Great Oaks Kennels. The Murray's were always incredibly prompt with communication and kept us informed throughout the whole process. Receiving weekly pictures from Jill was such a highlight! It was very evident that the puppies were loved on by the Murray family from the day they were born until the day they go home. Thank you for giving us the sweetest addition to our family Great Oaks Kennel!"

We appreciate Great Oaks for the time and correspondence during the selection process. We could not be happier with our GSD, Bella. While energetic, she is a fast learner with a great temperament. The care and professionalism we received is greatly appreciated!
My husband Alex surprised me back in January for my birthday gift that we would be getting a goldendoodle puppy! Justin and Jill were so incredible to work with throughout the whole process. They let my husband reserve a puppy months ahead of time so we could wait to get her in the summer once school was out. Communication was always outstanding and fast. We got many puppy updates and pictures while waiting to take our sweet baby home. We loved how family oriented the process was and knew our puppy was constantly being played with and cuddled by all family members, even their kids! The Murray family is so kind and we are so thankful for all they did for us. Now we are so in love with our puppy, Olive, and having a blast with her everyday!
We just picked up our 2nd puppy from Great Oaks Kennel and have had such a wonderful experience. We love our Labradoodle Hudson that we got 3 months ago from them and we just picked up our new baby girl Willa, who is a Goldendoodle. They gave us a wonderful experience of pictures every week and providing a fantastic atmosphere for the puppies to grow. I love that their children hold and cuddle the puppies as they grow since we have 3 children of our own. We loved our experience and I would highly recommend getting a puppy from them.
My husband and I had been looking for a breeder for awhile. We found Great Oaks through google and their website really resonated with me. They breed beautiful puppies but are also a very kind and beautiful family. They made sure to keep us updated weekly with pictures of our future puppy. Jill was very attentive and was always available to answer any of my questions. I would recommend them to anyone!

Words cannot express the joy and excitement that we have experienced from Great Oaks Kennel. Jill has went above and beyond keeping us updated with pictures and information on Belle.
Our son is currently serving in the U.S. Navy, so having these pictures to send to him has made him feel included in the process of getting Belle. Great Oaks is a great Christian family business and we highly recommend them to prospective puppy buyers.
We are truly grateful for Justin and Jill and their 6 children for raising and taking care of our little bundle of joy!
Thank you so much!
Just wanted to say thank you so much to Great Oaks Kennel! I was worried about having a puppy flown to New Hampshire without meeting him, but I could not resist his face in the pictures. From the second I emailed about the puppy to the second I received him, everything could not have gone more smoothly. I am truly grateful I found you guys and I am truly grateful for the amazing loving puppy. Knox fit in perfectly right away. You guys are amazing!
Great Oaks was amazing and very helpful to work with. They provided update pictures, videos, and information leading up to pickup day. I would definitely recommend Great Oaks Kennel as they made this process for our family amazing!
I recently received my puppy from Justin and the Murray Family. I am out of state, from South Carolina and had a great experience with no problems. The puppy arrived in a brand new crate with water, food and all the paperwork. I received pictures and updates all along the way and got to pick the puppy I wanted. For any out-of-state buyers, Great Oaks is the kennel to purchase a puppy from. I would do it again in a second and may well do it as my puppy grows up. Keep up the great work Great Oaks and the Murray Family.

From our very first contact with Justin & Jill, we received such exceptional service. They were so quick to respond to any questions we had & made the whole process so easy. We absolutely loved getting weekly photos of our growing pup, & when we went to pick out girl, we left feeling confident that she was being loved on & well taken care of until we could take her home. I cannot recommend Great Oaks highly enough. They went above & beyond to make our experience a great one. If we ever decide to get another puppy, we will definitely use Great Oaks again!
Great experience with a great family. The puppy's get a lot of love and are well taken care of. Very pleased with the process. If you are looking for a best friend, I would recommend Great Oaks Kennel!
After lots of research we decided Great Oaks Kennel would be the best fit for our family. The Murrays went out of their way to reach out to us and answer all of our questions. After putting in our deposit we were sent weekly updates of the puppies. We attended puppy picks and were able to spend quality time with the pups. After choosing our pup we still received updates and the Murrays were very accommodating when it came to picking up our puppy. Overall a very great experience!
I really cannot say enough wonderful things about Great Oaks Kennel. When we started our search for a Golden Retriever we came across Great Oaks online; I am so glad we did! Justin and Jill were kind and attentive throughout the process. We even had a setback within our family and had to delay purchasing our puppy and they were so gracious and understanding! As soon as the litter was born, we were notified. Jill sent us so many pictures leading up to bringing sweet Lucy home. It was so fun watching her grow! If your're thinking of adding a Golden to your family I highly recommend Justin, Jill, and Great Oaks Kennel!
Eric and I would like to thank you both for all of the care you provided to Molly for the last 8 weeks. You guys were so wonderful at sending pictures, videos, and texts of Molly. It was so heartwarming seeing her grow and play each week. Also, for answering all the many questions I had, as this was our first time getting a puppy and we had so many questions. You guys were so patient and always made us feel so comforted. She is the sweetest little puppy who absolutely adores the outside. We go play outdoors for hours and I think it reminds her of your guys' beautiful place. Thanks again!

Great Oaks has been amazing! They have been incredible through the whole process. They were responsive with my request for more information, calling the very next day. They walked me through the deposit process and were very accommodating with letting us come visit on a Saturday afternoon to choose our boy. All the puppies were gorgeous-we are so pleased with the personality and look of the little guy we chose. Great Oaks is knowledgeable and friendly. They kept us updated with pictures before we came to get him! We would absolutely recommend working with Great Oaks.

I would love to tell you about our wonderful little guy, well maybe not so little guy these days, Armin. From the moment we decided to pick out our new puppy, I knew Great Oaks was a good match for our family. I called several other breeders but didn't get the same warm response. They answered my questions and gave advice about any concerns I might have. When we decided to put our deposit down, they let us know when the puppies estimated take home date would be and that we could choose our puppy as soon as they were ready, around 6 weeks. We of course made it a family affair, kids in tow, to pick Armin out. The best part is the family met us and we could see the mom and dad as well as the area the dogs lived. It is a little farm of happiness compared to most breeders. The plus was also that the kids had been around the dogs and puppies, this helped our little guy feel right at home, as we have two boys, ages 5 and 8. Armin is smart, sweet, and very handsome. We can't take him anywhere without someone mentioning his coloring or beautiful coat. Overall the experience was wonderful and we would choose Great Oaks Kennel again. Top Notch.

After losing our 9 year old golden retriever, Banjo, we were on a search for another awesome golden retriever. We came across Great Oaks Kennel during our search and were very impressed by the beautiful dogs they produce. After researching them and talking with Justin we decided to go with them and that has been the best decision. They are a very loving, kind family and you can tell a lot of care goes into their dogs. They are the happiest dogs/puppies around! We highly recommend them for your next fur baby!
