Our Bernese Mountain Dogs & Standard Poodles
All of our founding dogs were thoroughly researched and have their certificate of health, have been OFA hip and elbow pre certified excellent, and eyes cleared by parentage, blood and genetic tested and come from champion and grand champion bloodlines so that our Premier Bernedoodle program can be the very best.
We have selected the highest quality European parental stock that have been thoroughly tested for genetic defects (all of our pedigrees have been shown to be OFA hip and elbow certified or pre-certified prior to breeding depending on age of parents, however, once they are 2 years of age we will then get their final OFA certifications) and that complement our standard poodle and Bernese mountain dog crosses to produce exceptional F1 bernedoodles. You can see all of the genetic and blood tests that we do under the tab "Genetic & Diagnostic Tests We Do". We prefer only producing F1 crosses as they live a long healthy and happy life, and take on the best of traits from both the standard poodle and the bernese mountain dog. Both our Standard Poodles and Bernese Mountain Dogs that we use for breeding to produce our Premier Bernedoodles will all have champion and grand champion bloodlines (please see the tabs "Our Standard Poodles" and "Our Bernese Mountain Dogs" at the top for more information about our Pedigrees). Most importantly they will have extremely fun and family oriented temperaments and are exceptional when around children. All of our dogs used in our breeding program are thoroughly kid tested!
Our bloodlines help produce premium quality ("Premier") Bernedoodles that will display intelligence, playfulness, nice balanced fun and playful temperament, are family oriented, outstanding health, and provide years of enjoyment with your new family member. We carefully researched many founding animals and selected only dogs that had champion and grand champion lines, displayed exemplary morphology (height, weight, coat type, and color/pattern and nice European drafty/blocky build) within the guidelines for AKC, and we tended to choose animals that best represented the AKC standard and that were within the upper size of the AKC range. We have selected Bernese mountain dogs based on having silky curly hair, that along with the Standard poodle coat, should produce a very low to non-shedding coat in our F1 Bernedoodles (we have carefully selected coats of our breeding dogs so as to maximize the non-shedding characteristic). Most people with allergy issues do not have any issues with our Premier Bernedoodles and are very similar to the goldendoodle in this regards. However, if you want a 100% hypoallergenic larger dog breed, the standard poodle is a great option and we produce some of the best standards from exceptional champion bloodlines. You can see our tab on our poodles above. We will have about 2 litters per year and will consist of red and white parti, black and white parti, tuxedo red and white parti and could have some tricolor phantoms as well.
If you're looking for an intelligent, healthy, beautiful and loving snuggly bernedoodle, you have found the right place to adopt one! Our females should range between 50-60+ pounds and be about 23-26+" at the withers and males should be approximately 70-95+ pounds and be about 24-29+" at the withers. We are working to increase the number of puppies we can produce while still providing our loving home environment they deserve. We only keep as many dogs that can be maintained comfortably in our home. As such, we will only be producing a limited number of Premier Bernedoodles each year but they will be well worth the wait. All of our puppies are born in our home and this will allow us to closely monitor each puppies personality and health. We raise our dogs with our own family. Ultimately this allows us to get to know our puppies well and to place the right puppy into the right home. This close monitoring assures that we will provide you with the very best Bernedoodle and one that we have personally bred and raised and socialized for you. Our puppies will have a headstart on crate training and basic obedience before they leave at 8 weeks of age and will have completed the bio-sensor and puppy culture (thru 8 weeks) programs discussed in the links above.
