FAQ

We provide you with a Two Year Genetic Health Guarantee that your puppy will be free from life-threatening congenital defects or we will replace your puppy with one of equal value as soon as possible!

We follow a set schedule for taking pictures every 3 weeks. While we are open to requests outside of this schedule if the mom is present, it’s important to note that some of our moms reside in guardian homes. This means that although we technically own the mom, a guardian family takes care of her and often the puppies she would raise. The guardian family treats them as their own family members, ensuring their well-being and socialization. This arrangement allows us to avoid being overwhelmed by the time and effort required to play with and enjoy the puppies.

Initially, we used to send frequent picture requests to the guardian families. However, we noticed that this disrupted their family life and caused some of them to reconsider their commitment. To maintain harmony and address this issue, we decided to establish a more structured approach.

To ensure a peaceful and uninterrupted lifestyle for our guardian homes, we have made a promise not to send additional picture requests outside of our regular 3-week scheduled “photo days.” This commitment enables the guardian families to enjoy their time with the mom and puppies without constant disruptions.

Answer: We have been involved in the breeding industry since 2009, which amounts to 14 years of experience in this field. Our journey began with my parents’ passion for breeding small poodles when I was a child. Those cherished memories of my siblings and me caring for the adorable puppies became the highlight of our lives.

When I got married, my wife and I were inspired to carry on this legacy and provide our three children with the same joyful experiences. With great enthusiasm, we embarked on our own breeding venture. Over the past decade, we have dedicated ourselves to breeding exceptional puppies, and our children have wholeheartedly embraced their roles in this endeavor.

Witnessing our kids’ profound love and devotion to the well-being of our puppies has further solidified our commitment to this fulfilling journey. It brings us immense joy to see how the bond between our children and the puppies has become an extraordinary highlight in their lives.

Throughout our years of experience, we have honed our expertise, refined our breeding practices, and developed a deep understanding of genetics and responsible breeding. We have strived to maintain the highest standards of care, ensuring the health, well-being, and socialization of each and every puppy we bring into the world.

As passionate and experienced breeders, we take pride in our commitment to producing healthy, well-adjusted puppies that will bring endless joy and companionship to their new families. We understand the significance of responsible breeding and the impact it has on the lives of both the puppies and their future owners. With each new generation, we strive to improve the breed, always prioritizing the overall health and temperament of our beloved puppies.

We are grateful for the opportunity to share our love for breeding with others and look forward to continuing this journey for many more years to come.

  • Day 3: 50% new diet and 50% old diet.
  • Day 5: 75% new diet and 25% old diet.

F1 refers to the cross between two purebred dogs- A Bernese Mountain Dog crossed to a Poodle or a Golden Retriever crossed to a Poodle. This generation cross gives a 50/50 mix, genetically they will have a combination of attributes between the two parents. Coats in F1s can vary in terms of the percentage of hair shedding. Some will be nearly completely non-shedding and others will have a percentage of hair that still sheds.

F1b’s are a Bernedoodle crossed to a Poodle- with 75% poodle, their coats are usually fairly consistently, low to non-shedding. Typically half of the litter will be have a curly coat and half will have a looser wavy coat.

We understand that getting a puppy is a pretty exciting undertaking for any family, and we want to keep you as engaged as possible in the process.

That being said, we have to operate with scheduled updates so that we can continue to provide the best possible care to our moms and pups while maintaining our normal family life activities ( kids, work, life in general etc. ) .

So while it may be exciting to request updated photos every other day, we ask that you please adhere to our usual update schedule.

If your puppy is already 8 weeks old, a good rule of thumb is that we work hard to get updated photos and videos every 2 to 3 weeks or so.

If you are picking your puppy from a new litter, we generally have the first photos done at around 2 to 3 weeks old. By then, Mama has had a chance to make sure they are all strong and healthy enough for us to begin socializing and providing the crucial regular human contact we believe in so strongly!

When they are 6 to 7 weeks old, we arrange for our professional photographers to capture a set of excellent individual photos and videos of each puppy– just like the ones you may have already seen on our website! This is also the time when we utilize that professional photo shoot to help those families that have reserved early litter picking positions find their perfect little angel!

After they are at least 8 weeks old, The pups are finally old enough to come home to you! We offer several delivery options, and are happy to help you select the best option for your family!

First of all, you can always fly into town to pick up your puppy from us. We can meet with you at the Airport and hand you the puppy there for free. please contact the airline to learn regulations surrounding your ability/requirements to fly with your puppy in the cabin. (it’s a pretty simple process in our experience )

Our puppies are family pets only! Although many breeders do a good job taking care of their mom dogs, We do not sell our puppies breeders. We want our puppies to grow up in the same kind of loving family environments they were born into!

As for spaying and neutering, We do however believe in delayed spaying and neutering, to allow the benefits of the hormones for bones and joint development. Please consult with your licensed veterinarian to help determine the best time to spay or neuter. We definitely encourage families to do their homework and weigh the pros and cons of delayed neutering and make a decision that is best for them.

Deposits are not refundable, but the also do not expire and can be used for a different puppy or litter in the future. They are applied to your final balance for your puppy.

When we receive a deposit for a puppy, we no longer advertise that puppy to other inquiring families. That makes it challenging for us to consider a puppy spoken for, and then have to start the process all over from scratch if a family changes their minds.

Should you decide you no longer want that puppy, you are welcome to transfer your deposit to another puppy or litter pick position. However the deposit itself is non-refundable.

In the unlikely event that something unexpected happens to the specific puppy you have placed a deposit for, we will refund your deposit or apply it to another choice.

We do offer potty training services but have to keep it at no more than 3 puppies at the time. The reason being, we feel like we do our best work when we have no more than 3 puppies at the time.
Prior to opting into our potty training program, we ask that you watch this youtube video so you have a clear understanding of both what we do, and what you’ll need to do to keep up with the puppy’s progress once he or she comes home.
We will get the toughest days or weeks out of the way, but Please review this video before accepting training. We want you to gain a better understanding of your role to continuing the potty training process when puppy gets home, so puppy does not back track.

Both have their advantages, but we recommend using a litter box. This is a very helpful video that should help you understand why.
