Let me tell you a little about myself.
I have been happily breeding, raising and training dogs for most of my life. I was raised with dogs and developed an early, intuitive understanding of them - how they behave, how they think, and most importantly how to motivate and communicate with these emotionally complex, sensitive and intelligent creatures. I also have a very deep background in nursing that has been most useful in my calling as a dog breeder. I am the mother of seven amazing children, and five grandchildren (so far.)
What happens when the breeder is also a top dog trainer? Puppies are on the right track from the very beginning! Raised with expert care and attention to proper socialization and curated learning experiences, BlackBriar Bernedoodle puppies are ready to meet the world with confidence and a clear understanding of their place in it. Many BlackBriar Bernedoodles have gone on to be service and emotional support dogs and are turning heads with their beauty, open social character, calm temperaments, and fun-loving personalities.
Why do I breed dogs? I can sum it up best by telling a short story:
Many years ago a family - father, mother and two young girls - was interested in buying a nice, very sweet puppy from me. I really liked the mom and the children, but I thought the dad was something of a jerk and I hesitated about the placement. Finally the puppy went to live with them many states away. Months later I received a letter from the dad, who said the following:
"Thank you for this puppy, now called Chaz. He is doing very well and we all love him. I must tell you, he filled a hole in my life that I did not even know was there."
And so it has happened, many times over. It is a privilege to be a small part of the history of so many families and people. I feel very fortunate to be able to share my passion for dogs with so many people. A really good dog is an unbelievable gift to us all.
