Zoe's AI was successful!

This week Ryder and Zoe had several successful ties and Zoe is completing her third artificial insemination (AI) procedure today. Her cytology report was excellent and we hit the perfect time for both the AI and the natural ties we got out of both Lexi and Ryder and Zoe and Ryder. We have also provided a new page to our website at https://www.premierdoodles.com/puppy-update-spring-2017 that will keep everybody updated with pictures of the puppies and the status of the pregnancies. We will do ultrasound in a few weeks to confirm the presence of embryos and then we will verify around day 48 how many puppies we will have. We will update both our blog here as well as that page on a regular ba

Lexi's AI Completed

After much consideration, we decided to do artificial insemination between Ryder (Bernese Mountain Dog) and Lexi (Standard Poodle) and had 3 successful AI sessions this past week with all of these events delivering semen right up to the cervix to assure we have good results. Our experienced veterinarian uses fresh sperm and immediately inseminates the female which greatly increases success rates (from his vast experience he gets well over a 90% success rate and even higher with multiple AI's like we had). The sperm count was high and mobile and we should have a healthy and beautiful litter of Premier Bernedoodles in June. Zoe has just started flagging and we will be doing the same procedur

Zoe and Lexi's Heat Cycle Started

Just a quick update that Zoe and Lexi's heat cycle has started and breeding will commence in about 8 days and continue until day 12-16. Based on this timing, the puppies will be due around June 11 and ready to go to their new forever homes approximately the week of August 7th. We will be confirming pregnancy with ultrasound around mid-May or as soon as our veterinarian gives us the green light. We will subsequently get a head count from Lexi and Zoe so we have a better idea of how many puppies we expect. More to follow but that's the update for now!
