We have been breeding Bernese Mountain Dogs since 2015 and are excited to now be breeding F1 mini Bernedoodles, as well. Our goal is to breed for health and temperament and to place each puppy with a loving family. Our dogs are loved members of our family and their well-being and health always come first!
They have lots of land to run and play on and also spend quality time with us in the house. They join us on family hikes, exploring the farm and woods, car rides, trips to the creek for some swimming (a favorite activity of theirs in the summer time), and of course running around and carrying on with the kids in the snow.
In addition to feeding them Purina One Pro Plan Large Breed dog food, several times a week they get eggs, liver, kidney and other various organ meat. Organ meat is full of vitamins and minerals that are essential to canine health. They are a plentiful source of vitamins A, B, D and E as well as minerals like copper, iron, phosphorus, selenium and zinc. Organ meat also has premium quality protein and fat. My dogs also receive fish oil supplements for hearth health, a soft shiny coat and healthy skin. A favorite treat is marrow bones. These have the power to keep them busy for hours!
Bmd puppies are fed Purina Pro Plan Large Breed puppy food; bernedoodle puppies are fed Purina Pro Plan Small Breed Puppy. The treats I use for puppies is Wellness Soft Puppy Bites. Puppies are loved and well socialized by our whole family on a daily basis. At 4 weeks old they get their first baths and start spending time outside everyday (weather permitting). Several of our past puppies have gone on to become therapy dogs; visiting with patients in hospitals and other facilities.
Once whelping begins I stay with the mother the entire time; until every puppy has been born, completely dried off, weighed, and has begun feeding. The puppies will grow up in our home so they can be properly loved and nurtured. The whole family is involved in their upbringing. Including but not limited to, snuggle time, play time, outdoor time, meal time, car time and bath time. Visits are welcome after 4 weeks of age. Puppies will use a litterbox filled with grass pellets for pottying. I will begin to take them outside to potty around the 7 week mark.
