First time dog owner...and we could not be happier with our choice with KNU Dawn. Dawn and Darrell are an amazing team!!! We've had Ruby for 2 1/2 weeks. We picked her up at 12 weeks, after 4 weeks of training with Darrell. Dawn was absolutely amazing at walking us through the adopting process, holding our hands as a first dog owner and helping choose the right puppy for our family. Ruby is playful, social, happy, resilient, smart and absolutely stunning. She is full of personality. And, 4 weeks with Darrell was priceless. He has a very calm way about him that the dogs respond great to. I could see when I picked Ruby up how fond she was of him (and vice versa). She was fully crate trained, leash trained, answered to her name, knew some commands and after a few days at home, house trained. We loved receiving pictures, videos and funny stories along the way. Seeing Dawn and Darrell in their home assured me that these puppies are well cared for and loved. We have no doubt that we'll stay in touch with them. Highly recommend!!!

We brought Max home on May 22 with a nice care package from Dawn

and lots of instructions. She cares deeply for her pups and wants to be

sure they will continue to get the exceptional care she gives them.

We took him to the Vet as required by Dawn two days later to find

that he was in the best of health. Everything that she did prior to our

possession was done correctly and with care. The vet went through all

the paperwork and was very impressed as are we.

We have had Max now for almost three weeks and he is loving, smart

adorable, friendly, fearless, crate trained, leash trained and close to

training us with his outdoor habits….

We couldn’t ask for a better, more loving family member. He is one of

the best things that has happened for us.

Thank you KnuDawn for bringing such joy into our lives…..

Our Zeke is the perfect dog! He was the best addition to our family 4 years ago. He is loving, gentle, and very calm. He is the star of the neighborhood and absolutely loves little kids. Would recommend a goldendoodle for anyone looking for a great family dog💓

We went to get our Goldendoodle in March... we left with 2 ;) These 2 brothers have who have polar opposite personalities have the best temperament(s)! They are almost a year old (1/11) and everything Dawn describes about her dogs is absolutely true! I couldn't imagine only having one! I did a Google search and Dawn came up. We went on whim and left with 2. I have always had dogs, these are absolutely amazing dogs!



Dawn is a wonderful breeder and she cares deeply about what she does. I got a goldendoodle puppy in December and I am in love with her. The puppy is so cute and she has such a personality. Dawn walks you through the adoption process and gives you a lot of information. She is always available and willing to answer questions and truly wants to see her puppies get adopted into loving homes. You will be lucky and blessed to get a puppy from here �

This is BODHI. He came to us 12/18/18. He is a great pup. He is smart, is 95% potty trained. We work with a trainer who is very impressed with BODHI and he mentioned several times during our session how he can see and tell BODHI is a well bred pup. Patrick our trainer loves BODHI. He is very social and has already made many friends. He loves to go out shopping and gets lots of attention everywhere he goes. Thank you to Dawn. We recommend her highly and we may be back for another DOODLE.

Love love love my Goldendoodle! We had a wonderful experience with Dawn. I highly recommend knu Dawn Southern Goldendoodles! Our puppy is perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Thank you Dawn.

I cannot express my gratitude enough. Dawn is utterly amazing. Someone who does the right thing because it is the right thing to do, has the best interest of the dog and connecting them with the correct human as her first concern. I will forever love Goldendoodle and poodles after experiencing so many wonderful dogs. Smart, well behaved, and loved.

Dawn lives up to everything you read in these reviews...Attentive to details, great follow up, delivers as promise and could not expect a better experience. I've followed Kareaway Kennels for over 6 months and would ask a question here or there and always been satisfied with the response and time to receive it. Her care & passion for these pups are evident. The first night we had our new boy at home, he felt like he had been there for months. I've had dogs all my life and never experienced a pup so well acclimated. That's proof positive of a love that is really special. My family is so grateful for the experience and all those we have to look forward to. Proceed with full faith knowing that Kareaway Kennels is going to provide an amazing experience!

Dawn, I just want to say, Sabre has been the talk of the town since she’s become a therapy dog! She comes to work with me since I’m a therapist and comforts my clients, she visits schools when there’s a tragedy in the community, and visits businesses for wellness days � she’s grown to be so intuitive and sweet and BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you for being an amazing breeder.. your diligence helps not only pet owners get a quality dog, but it helps others get comfort from an amazing dog! Thank you �

We are absolutely in love with our amazing Goldendoodle from Knu Dawn! Our puppy is so sweet, loving, intelligent, athletic and fun and has completely exceeded our expectations. Dawn is an excellent breeder and is 100 % true to her word. We have pet allergies and our puppy (an F3B) does not shed at all and our home remains completely allergy free! These puppies are raised by Dawn and Darrell in their home with their children and with so much love. Our puppy is very social and is great with children, grandparents and even strangers. We also purchased the one month training option with Darrell and that was worth every penny. We picked up our puppy when he was 3 months old and he was already housebroken and knew his basic commands. Darrell is super knowledgeable. Highly recommend him! Dawn and Darrell are refreshingly earnest, hard working people and the dogs they raise with so much care and integrity are a testament to their work ethic. The whole process was a pleasure and we still keep in touch. We could not have chosen a better breeder or puppy for our family!!! We are so happy and we love our doodle!!! Many thanks, Joe, Helena & family

We love our Lily, she will be 4 months on Monday, she is a puppy from Rose and Charlie and she is very playful and smart. Kareaway is great place to get a Doodle companion.

We originally got Sheba - a black golden doodle - 5 yrs ago from Knu Dawn. Sheba has the best temperament and is the smartest dog we have ever owned. We went back to Knu Dawn and brought home Xena last week. Xena is also a black golden doodle, and is very affectionate and intellegent. We highly recommend Knu Dawn for golden doodles.

Copper is now 4 months and is such a smart and lovable dog!! Great experience!

If you want the cutest and sweetest pup in the universe, Dawn will make your dreams come true! My man and I are absolutely in love with our little firecracker Baxter and we’re so happy we found Dawn. Pups are in good hands with her and you really won’t find a better place to find your perfect fur baby. ♥️

Some of the dogs we breed to produce service dogs came from Karaway. In fact both of our top producing males are from her lines. Great personalities and temperament! 4 Paws a For Ability.
