ACCEPTING DEPOSITS ON UPCOMING BERNEDOODLES ONLY
Do you have any puppies available now? Puppies that we have are typically all spoken for before or shortly after being born. Best to get in on a waitlist. See "Upcoming / New Litters" page for updates.
What kind of doodles are up and coming soon? Puppies will be low to no shed, and will be allergy friendly. No doodles will be 100% hypoallergenic - this applies to all breeders. Puppies to your left are double doodles. Each litter is unique as is each puppy from a litter. We breed F1 Goldendoodle, Multigen or "Double Doodles" and F1 Bernedoodles.
When are the next litters due? Please see updates on the Home Page.and Upcoming / Available Page.
Do you own your breeding dogs? Yes, all dogs we breed are owned and either live here with us or are in a loving guardian home.
When do puppies get picked up? Add 8 weeks after birth for timing when puppies can leave here for new homes. Add 1-2 weeks if you decide to participate in the "Puppy Boot Camp". Your puppy goes home on the same day as Boot Camp. If you do not opt for Boot Camp, your puppy must be picked up on the day he/she turns 8 weeks old.
What is the process of getting a puppy? A $500 deposit is required to secure a pick position in a litter. Please fill out a puppy deposit form which can be found on the Available & Upcoming page. You can e-mail it to: Nicole@doodlelitters.com
Puppies are then picked in order of deposits received at 5-6 weeks of age. Balance is due at puppy selection. If participating in the training program, the training fee of $400.00 is due day of pick up.
How much do puppies cost? Current pricing is on the main page.
Can we come to visit the puppies? If you are participating in boot camp, two visits are allowed. Due to the overwhelming number of visits, we no longer allow for visits of the litter between your initial visit and puppy selection. ALL visits are by APPOINTMENT ONLY.
There are variations of a double doodle. Most common is a Labradoodle bred to a Goldendoodle. A double doodle can then be back bred to a poodle or a golden retriever for the intended desired look . Puppies due are second generation double doodles aka multi gen.
Main reason for breeding double doodles is that double doodle bloodlines are healthier than either a goldendoodle or labradoodle because of so much fresh DNA coming together.
Double doodle puppies can have wavy or mild curl, depending who the parents are.
We also breed F1 Bernedoodles, F1 Goldendoodles
We like to breed for traits. Each puppy is an individual. Traits we like to enhance are the longer ears, relaxed to mild curls (not tight poodle-like), colors, girth and relaxed golden retriever like tails (not curled up like a poodle). We want all the intelligence the poodle has to give, as well as the no shedding trait. We just do not want puppies to look like a poodle!
The aussiedoodle. and our poodle can present color variations, very unique looking doodle puppies. Most all puppies are at least second generation. Size of puppies will greatly depend on who its parents are.
Puppies will be up to date on vaccines and worming. Puppies will be as crate trained as possible, puppies, like children will not all be potty trained at the same age. All puppies will be socialized and pre trained not to jump up on people, nip or bite.
Puppies should definitely be in a crate at home, I suggest a 36" Puppy should be on a high quality puppy formula dry kibble. Puppies are fed "4 Health" only found at Tractor Supply stores.
No puppy pads! Get a timer instead to remind you to take out for potty breaks on a timely basis.
Puppies are best transferred to their new home held in the back seat by a family member.
Have a vet already set up, preferably a holistic one, even if it is a drive. A 24 hour clinic is the best because things usually happen after Dr.'s hours!
That depends on who the parents are. Puppies are individual conceptions with individual placentas, and are born one at a time. Puppies will be all about the same size, but all will be individuals. Big mother, big puppies, smaller mother, smaller puppies..generally speaking.
Picking a puppy is generally done between 5-6 weeks of age. It is then, the personality and direction coat is leaning. Puppies that will have more curl as an adult will have more ripples on it head and ears, opposed to a softer wave will have less.
No I do not ship. Too much trauma for such a little puppy, too many things could go wrong. People who want a puppy from me must drive to pick it up, or fly home with it.
I do not see either sex dominating specific personalities.. Each puppy is an individual. Breeder and new family plays a large role in the puppy's personality and overall manners. Females will mark green grass, best to train designated 'place to go'.
No shedding! Enabling a person with dog allergies to have a dog. Intelligence! Super smart, easy to train, gentle.calm, people friendly, great with children. The best, to me, is having all the Lab and Golden Retriever's traits with a no shedding teddy bear look.
The Golden Retriever and the Labrador Retriever, are the top breeds for families in the United States. I know, I use to breed them! But we all know that they shed and are not a good choice for those with allegies in the family. Breeding with a poodle makes it possible to have that great dog that is intelligent and adorable! And even tho no coat is guaranteed, most do not shed.
I have been breeding doodles here in New England for over 10 years. Puppies are raised in a home atmosphere, raised with older doodle and lots of love and attention from us. Each year we seem to grow, our business is based greatly on referrals from happy families. We have placed close to 1,000 doodles since 2007. I would have to say we have had a 99% success rating overall. There is always those one cannot please.
