OUR BERNEDOODLE BABIES:
My Bernedoodle babeis are outgoing, intelligent, clever gentle, silly, friendly, attentive, intuitive and devoted. These babies will make wonderful additions to families with children, the elderly, and those with disabilities. Bernedoodles are people pleasers, which means they are very easily trained, and make wonderful therapy, and service dogs. I work hard to help mold, and bring out the inherent traits of each baby. I ensure that each furbaby is able to build a relationship with us before they go home. This is a crucial, and often overlooked, part of being a breeder. Our puppies already have a clear love and understanding of the human-furbaby relationship when they finally get to meet their forever family! Not only do I spend most of my day with the babies, I also frequently have my family over to be around the puppies. Our puppies are able to build confidence around new people, including children, and babies.
We are truly blessed to be able to connect with, and love these incredible creations! Bernedoodles are family members with strong attachments to human beings, and other pets alike. They are meant to live among their people, they are not meant to be living outside of your home
.All of our babies are put on a worming regime, visit our veterinarian, and receive their due vaccinations, before going to their forever families.
In seeking the highest standards developmentally and behaviorally, we practice Sound Desensitization and Early Neurological Stimulation with each of our puppies. to help improve the following:
• Cardio vascular performance.
• Stronger and healthier heart beats.
• Healthier adrenal glands.
• Higher tolerance to anxiety and stress.
• Stronger resistance to diseases
We begin working with our puppies early on to learn basic commands such as "sit", "come", and "go potty". As well as getting them familiar with their forever name.
We use a pine pellet litter tray for potty training the puppies from 3 weeks old. This helps the puppy begin to learn the difference between a 'potty spot' and a living area.
All of our puppies are $3,750. I do not have differing prices based on coat colors, coat types, or size. All of our babies are beautiful inside and out. They will all go to their furever family healthy, joyful, and loved. Each puppy will share the wonderful, and highly sought after traits of the admired Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle.

A nonrefundable deposit of $500 is required to reserve a position on any wait list. This deposit will be applied to the total cost of your puppy.
A wait list position will not be held until after the deposit is received.
I do not waitlist families based off of preferred coat colors, or genders If I notify you that the time has come for you to select your furbaby from a newborn litter, and the timing is inconvenient for you, or you do not see your 'ideal' furbaby, you may opt to pass. If you pass you will be moved to the first pick of the next available litter. Anyone in front of you on the waitlist that decides to pass will take precedence over you, and you will take precedence over anyone waitlisted after you. Waitlists are kept minimal to void excessively long waits. I do my very best to estimate the timing of our litters. However, heats and births do not always happen at the times in which they are predicted. I do not control nature and can only offer my best estimates. Therefore, anticipated litter arrivals are subject to change and may require a bit of flexibility in your timeline.
Deposits can be placed via Venmo, Cash App., Zelle or Paypal (Please note that Paypal requires an additional 3% fee that would need to be added to your payment.
SELECTING YOUR FURBABY & UPDATES:
From 1 week and on I will post weekly photo shoots on my available babies page. At 3 weeks of age, after 3 week photos are posted, I will contact our wait listed families in the order reserved to select their furbaby. When selecting your puppy it is important to know that a puppies personality is highly influenced based off of their parents inherent traits, how much socializing they experience in their first months of life, training, daily life experiences with us, and their new forever family, and just maturing over all. You cannot judge a puppies lifelong personality at a young age- their personality will continue coming out and evolving way past 8 weeks old! All of our puppies are going to be extremely loving, devoted, clever, affectionate, intelligent and playful as I do not breed parents who do not have these traits. I work tirelessly to enhance these traits to their full potential through strengthening the ' human to furbaby' relationship, and working on early on training. I can assure all of my families that each of our fur babies will make amazing, loving companions for loving families. These babies are my pride and joy- not only do I want their new families to be utterly in love, I also want the furbabies to be equipped to enjoy their life to the fullest potential, this starts with me!
Once you select your furever furbaby I will continue to update their pictures at 4 Weeks, 5 Weeks, 6 Weeks. and 7 Weeks on our 'weekly pupdates' page. Pictures and video updates can also be found on our Doodles-n-Company Instagram page and my video gallery page Be sure to follow us on Facebook & Instagram to watch our furbabies grow! :) I prefer to communicate using email as the email chains allow us to carry on lengthy conversations throughout your puppy's time with us, while also allowing families to refer back to our previous responses to questions and concerns that may have otherwise been forgotten. Please let me know if your email address changes.
The remaining balance is due when your puppy turns 7 weeks old if you are paying through Paypal, Cashapp. Venmo. or Zelle If we are meeting in person I can also accept cash upon our meet up. I do not accept any form of checks, or money orders.
You are welcome to come to our home to pick up your new fur baby. However, we do not allow visitation with our young pups, as the health of our little ones is our top priority. Young, unvaccinated puppies are susceptible to viruses and deadly illnesses such as parvo This is something we take very seriously as it is our responsibility to protect the health of not only our own furbabies, but the health of each of our young puppies Our adorable puppy videos and updates will help to aid in the bonding process and allow you to see what you are in for when your new baby arrives home! :)
DELIVERY & PICK UP:
After 8 weeks of age, I begin allowing families to pick up their babies from our home in Smiths Creek Michigan. ( I prefer that you arrange to pick you furbaby up during the weekend) Due to covid-19 we are taking precautions and will not be allowing families into our home when picking up their furbaby. We can meet outside, or we can pick a spot to meet up- we will drive up to an hour away free of charge.
If you are out of state and decide to fly in to Detroit Metro Airport to pick up your puppy for a return flight home together, you will be responsible for scheduling your flight, the cost of your plane ticket, and your puppy's flight as well. F1b tinies/minis can fly in cabin while some airlines MAY require a standard puppy (10 pounds+) to fly cargo. Although, based off of past expereinces, this seems loosely enforced
If you are a long distance from us and are looking to have your furbaby flown to your nearest major airport, I may be able to arrange this for an additional expense of $450, or $500 for minis/standards due to their need for a larger travel carrier. This will cover your babies plane ticket, air travel safe crate and health certificate for flight. This expense is due at least 4 days before your puppy flies.
I can hold a puppy up to 10 weeks old free of expense. If you are unable to pick your puppy up before 10 weeks I will charge an additional $10 per day. If your puppy requires additional vaccinations during his or her extended time with me you will be responsible for those fees as well.
All puppies come with a Spay Neuter Contract. I ask that families send proof of procedure when it is completed. Puppies come with a 2 year health guarantee and life time support. I will always be available for advice and of course pupdates.
Terms and Guarantee
Unless you request otherwise, we do not micro chip our puppies. I certainly think your puppy should be micro chipped. However, I do not think it is necessary to micro chip a puppy before 8 weeks of age. If I have your puppy past 8 weeks and you wish to have him or her micro chipped this will be an additional expense of $50. Otherwise, you can have your vet micro chip your puppy when they have their first visit within the first couple of days of their arrival home.
RECEIVING YOUR PUPPY:
Upon pick up, your puppy will have received a veterinary health exam. They will come home with their vaccination/health record, 2 year health guarantee, their first vaccinations and worming regimen to age, optional micro chip depending on age, travel carrier if flying, collar, baby blanket with momma's scent, and a baggy of puppy food to get you started. If your puppy is flown home to you, we will be limited on what we can send home with your puppy. We require that you take your puppy to you veterinarian within 4 days of them being home.
Brining a new furbaby into your family is very exciting and such a blessing, but initially it can feel overwhelming, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. I will continue to be in touch with my families, offering lifetime support in regards to any questions you may have in the future. Please keep in touch with us, sending pictures and updates. We look forward to watching your puppy grow, and hope that you will join us in sharing the joy of raising our Bernedoodles with other Doodles-n-Company families, on Facebook & Instagram!
F1 BERNEDOODLES & F1B BERNEDOODLES
The F1 Bernedoodle is a First generation pairing between a purebred Poodle, and a purebred Bernese Mountain Dog. This 50/50 cross typically results in a a low/non shedding wavy coat.
The F1B Bernedoodle is genetically 75% Poodle and 25% Bernese Mt. Dog. This combination is the most hypo-allergenic of the Bernedoodle generations. Typically, these babies will have curly/wavy coats. Other than coat texture, there are not any notable differences in appearance or personality traits compared to an F1 cross.
Your furbaby should be brushed at least once a week, and trimmed every few months. Coat colors may change over time, revealing underlying markings or shades.
Typically our Bernedoodles have the 'muppet' or 'shaggy' appearance. On a rare occasion in our F1 litters, we will have a furbaby that inherits shorter facial hair that resembles the Bernese Mountain Dog.. This type of Bernedoodle coat is referred to as 'unfurnished'. A coat like this will still have length and waviness, while requiring far less work when grooming. We're able to identify the appearance of these coats and make note by the time our families are able to choose their furbabies so there are no surprises. Both of these coat types are beautiful!
The pairing of a pure bred Poodle to a Bernese Mountain Dog, results in offspring having the best attributes of both breeds, without the known degenerations in the Bernese Mt. Dog.. This is known as "Hybrid vigor". Sadly a large dog like a Bernese only has a life span of 6-10 years. Through their pairing with a poodle, we are able to combine the loyalty, compassion and attentiveness of a Bernese with the well cared for genetics, agility, wit. and silliness of the purebred poodle.
The Standard Bernedoodle has an estimated life span of 12-15 years
The Mini Bernedoodle has an estimated life span of up to 17 years.
The Tiny Bernedoodle has an estimated life span of up to 18 years.
