Upcoming Bernedoodle Program

After years of research, we are excited to share with you our upcoming Bernedoodle program! Get to learn the breed below.

Health

The big question. How is their health? Well, we certainly are new to the breed and do not have any data ourselves to look at. However, we have worked with thoughtful breeders we love and trust (mostly fellow GANA breeders) to acquire our foundation breeding stock. We have researched their lines and found there are several generations of health tested dogs with great temperaments beyond the dogs we’ve acquired for breeding. We are aiming for a lifespan similar to our Goldendoodles (12-15 years on average).

Temperament

So far we are finding the Bernedoodles to be overall calmer, and more relaxed than the Goldendoodle. On the other hand, they can be a bit more stubborn.

Ethics

Our Bernedoodle puppies will be raised with the same health testing standards and enrichment protocols as our Goldendoodle puppies. Our Bernedoodles will be fully health tested before breeding with the following health tests:

  • PennHip at 16 weeks
  • OFA hips at 12 & 24 months
  • OFA elbows at 12 & 24 months
  • OFA Eyes before breeding and repeated every 2 years
  • OFA heart & patella at 12 months
  • DNA diseases prevalent in the Bernese Mtn Dog and Poodle

 

All Bernedoodle puppies will be raised with Puppy Culture, ENS, and our own methods of socialization developed over the years of raising puppies.

Size

At this time, most of our puppies will be 40 lbs and up. We are working to acquire mini Bernedoodle girls to pair with our mini Bernedoodle stud, Bennett.

Shedding

While we are getting started, we could produce a few puppies that could shed a little more than our Goldendoodles. We will only be breeding multigenerational Bernedoodles, but some could only have one copy of furnishings (IC carrier), instead of two. Some puppies who are IC carriers can shed a little more than those who have two copies of furnishings. They will still shed much, much less than a Bernese Mountain Dog. As we progress in our program, we will soon create non-shedding Bernedoodle puppies. This is a high priority for us.

Timing

Our first litters will be from Shelby and Pepper most likely in the summer/fall of 2022. We will open the waiting list to our repeat customers first and will then take applications from the public if there’s still room. We will not open the waiting list for Bernedoodle puppies until the first girl comes into heat to be bred.

Pricing

We will determine pricing as we get closer to having our first litter.
