Pros - Smart guy
Cons - None
AAA+++ Steve has a great reputation and his T's are healthy as possible. He is quick to offer his knowledge and experience. All around a good guy to deal with. Easy to communicate with and a pleasure to purchase from.
He is a really understanding person. I placed an order for 5 of his tarantulas. Since it was a cold winter he was unable to ship and offered to hold. He gave me updates on them constantly, sadly one passed during a molt (male) and he let me know instantly. In my personal life, I'm gonna be moving to a place where I can't keep Ts and he was really understanding and seemed genuinely sorry that I have to leave the hobby, rather than being upset of losing an order. He seems like a really good guy and given that he is still in the hobby when I return I see myself ordering from him again!
Thanks Shane good luck!
Purchased 6 tarantulas from Steve. My work had me working long hours out of town so shipping was a problem. Instead of shipping them Steve went the extra mile and drove from basically Seattle Washington to Portland Oregon. He had them all packaged nicely for the long drive and made it a breeze for my 17 year old daughter to rehouse them. Everything was exactly what he said it was and im extremely happy. I would definitely order from Steve again. Next time ill drive to him...
Thank you Kenny
Pros - Great packing, awesome communication, all around cool to work with
I purchased a male versi, male avicularia avicularia and female pamphobeteus platyomma, all came in great shape, the versicolor attempted to molt in his shipping container but was fine and molted great, i defenitely look forward to doing another transaction with him soon.
Pros - Exactly as described.
Worked with me on meeting for pick up.
Packaged perfectly for me to transport her home safely.
Provided molt history and last day of feeding.
Steven Doud is an amazing seller to work with. I was able to communicate with him easily. The G. Pulchra is exactly as he described and he made sure she was safe during transportation, even though we met to pick her up. Arranging a date/ time/ location for pickup was a simple process. He was happy to explain any questions I had. He provided a molt history and her last feed date.
Really nice, great guy that clearly takes pride in all the fine details for each transaction. I could not be happier. I’m looking forward to purchasing from him again.
Thank you Steven!
Thanks Candace! Hope you enjoy watching the little girl grow.

Pros - Everything
Cons - nothing
Ordered a Xenesthis intermedia female from Steve. Shipped on monday, but the post office messed up and I didn't get the package till Wednesday (totally P.O. fault, nothing to do with Steve). But thanks to the excellent packing job, and his inclusion of a long lasting heat pack, the spider was totally fine. Excellent communication throughout the anxiety inducing P.O. issues. Definitely would purchase more from him.
Pros - Great communication. Tarantulas are in great shape.
Purchased tarantulas on Saturday. Shipped Monday and delivered healthy on Tuesday. Great communication throughout. Definitely would do business with again.
Pros - Quick and thorough communication, great packaging, healthy tarantulas
Cons - Absolutely none
Recently I began a thread expressing my sadness about one of my Phrixotrichus scrofa slings that died seemingly out of nowhere. As this was the first tarantula I've lost, I was pretty torn up about it. After expressing his condolences in the thread, Steve reached out to me personally saying he had a 2.5" P. scrofa female that he would be willing to send me for nothing but the cost of shipping. This was totally unexpected and incredibly generous of him, and I sent him the money for shipping. We worked out the delivery date that night.
On shipping day I received messages from Steve both by text and here on AB with both the tracking number and pictures of the TWO girls he had included: a 3" P. scrofa (an even larger female than he had originally offered ❤) and a surprise 3" female rcf G. rosea!
Despite several hiccups with the post office/delivery process today, my two beautiful girls got here safe and sound! Steve's communication throughout the whole process was impeccable, and the two spiders were expertly packaged. I love these two girls already. People like Steve are such a remarkable asset to this hobby, and I would not hesitate to recommend or do business with him in the future. Thank you, Steve!
