OUR DOGS MEAN EVERYTHING TO US
If you are looking for a well-balanced, intelligent dog with beauty, loyalty and a happy personality, you have come to the right place!
We are experienced, family-centered, ethical breeders. Our program is based in New England – but our gorgeous puppies have been placed with families from coast to coast.
We are longtime breeders of purebred dogs with over 40 years experience. Although we now focus that experience on Bernedoodles, a hybrid breed, we fully subscribe to the AKC Breeder Code of Ethics.
We are passionate about our dogs and puppies. Our elite breeding program strives to preserve, promote, and protect the natural strength and beauty of both the Bernese Mountain Dog and the Poodle by carefully crossing select bloodlines to produce Bernedoodles that embody the very best traits of both foundation breeds.
ALL OUR DOGS ARE GENETICALLY TESTED AND CLEARED
All of our breeding dogs (Bernese Mountain Dogs, Poodles, and Bernedoodles) have been genetically tested and cleared, and come from the very best kennels and programs from around the world.
Our Bernedoodle dogs and puppies are home-raised, never kenneled, and puppies spend the first eight weeks of their lives living intimately with our family and learning how to be good family members. All our dogs receive the highest nutritional support and are fed a premium organic raw diet.
We genetically test every single breeding male and female (Bernese Mountain Dogs, Poodles, and Bernedoodles) prior to breeding to screen for any hereditary health problems. This means we screen for both Poodle and Bernese Mountain Dog hereditary diseases. Our primary genetics lab is Embark Veterinary Laboratory,
but we also use PawPrint Genetics and UC Davis Veterinary Genetics Laboratory as well. Every single puppy receives a full veterinary wellness exam, age-appropriate vaccinations, internal parasite control, and all recommended screenings before going to a new home.
We are constantly monitoring the veterinary literature, both in the US and abroad, for continuing advances in canine genetics, health, wellness, nutrition, and disease prevention. Our breeding program is exceptional in its commitment to veterinary advances, and is constantly improving.
Bernedoodles are an amazing cross between the giant Bernese Mountain Dog, and the multi-talented Poodle.
Bernedoodles are very people-oriented, are great with children, and like nothing better than to be where their people are and to be involved with everything that that's going on around them. They are loyal, highly affectionate dogs, and have an intuitive intelligence that makes them superb companions and very easy to train. They will play all day if that's what you want to do, but just as happily snuggle with you on the couch or lay quietly at your feet while you are working. They are truly stellar companions, at ease with people of all ages.
