Reviews of Star Creek Kennel (and our puppies) provided by some of our many happy customers. We are a professional Iowa dog breeder and proud of our excellent reputation.


As always, Kobe gets a ton of compliments on how beautiful his size/fur/face etc…so we always give you all praise for that! Kim & I, call you all his Got-Ya-Parents, breeder just sounded odd & not valuable. You all take a lot of pride in your work & give families like ours a bundle of furry-joy! And we are super grateful for your work! Kobe really kept us entertained & sane during this pandemic, as we were worried about how much time we’d have to spend with him as a puppy due to our professions, to us both having to switch gears & being home fulltime since mid March.

You can tell how much they care about each and every one of the puppies they sell. I recommend them to anyone looking for a Standard Poodle. If I ever decide to get a playmate for my Dylan, I will definitely buy from them!

Our standard poodle will be one year old this month. Lori picked him out for us and he has been a wonderful addition to our family. Our veterinarian commented on how handsome and healthy he was when we first brought him in. Benjamin is very intelligent and great with children. We are very proud of him!

Got our Goldendoodle from Star Creek Kennel and she is an amazing puppy. Lori was wonderful to work with and truly cares about her puppies. She raises them in her home, with her family and lots of love.

We adopted our goldendoodle Bradley from Star Creek Kennel about 2 weeks ago. He is such a healthy, smart, beautiful boy! He adjusted to our family immediately, including my 2-year-old daughter. He has already learned some basic obedience commands too. Lori and Mike are wonderful breeders who cares about their dogs and are a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend!!

Well bred, well taken care of pups. You are NOT dealing with a puppy mill! You are dealing with a dyed in the wool honest dog lover! My black Standard Poodle was born there and he is wonderful in looks & disposition!

Great licensed dog breeders who truly care about the well being of each puppy… I am thankful I had the opportunity to meet and chat with Lori prior to taking home my pup. I am so happy with my goldendoodle, Moe!

We drove 8 hours to get our puppy. We’ve had her 8 months and couldn’t be happier. Star Creek breeds quality dogs with great temperaments. Can’t wait to get our next Star Creek Retriever.

We got our apricot poodle from Lori. Paris (aka Socks) is the sweetest Standard Poodle. She was well socialized within the home. She does great with all ages of children. She isn’t a barker. Lori was great about talking with us about how to care for our new pet. It was also a plus I got to see my girl’s dad and grandma.
