So, you have fallen in love with Bernedoodles and have decided to get one yourself. Before you become a new pet parent, it is important to remember all dogs, whether they are a Bernedoodle, Collie, Husky, or some other breed, require a lot of love and attention.
Puppies and dogs want to be petted, brushed, walked, and played with. You will need to make sure they are fed at the same time each day. You will need to potty train your new puppy too. They may even wake you up in the middle of the night if they need to go outside to use the bathroom.
If you are busy, active, and constantly on the go, becoming a pet parent to a new puppy or dog may not be right for you at this time. You need to keep these things in mind to ensure you are ready to be responsible for a new puppy.
If you are ready to start browsing Bernedoodle puppies, you will want to use these tips to find the best Bernedoodle breeder.
1. Schedule a visit to their kennel.
It is important to see where your Bernedoodle puppy will be born. The kennel should be clean and organized and provide a safe environment for their dogs and puppies.
2. Take time to learn more about the breeder.
Reputable dog breeders are happy to talk about everything Bernedoodle. They are also happy to share pictures of their litters, other new pet parents with their new puppy, and so on.
3. Ask to meet the parents.
During your visit to the kennel, take time to meet the parents of your future puppy. If the parents are happy and friendly, you know that your puppy will be taken care of until you take him or her home.
4. Ask how much the dogs and puppies are handled.
It is important for dogs and puppies to get plenty of TLC and handling early on. This helps the puppies become used to humans and regular interactions with people.
5. Ask how many times a year the mother is bred.
Ideally, the mother should only be bred once a year and no more than twice a year. She needs time to recover in between each litter.
6. Ask for references.
Get a list of recent references you can contact and ask about their experience with the breeder. If the breeder isn’t willing to provide references, it is recommended to find a different breeder.
7. Ask if they are willing to take the Bernedoodle back.
A decent breeder will be there for you after you take your new puppy home should you find yourself in a predicament and not able to care for your dog.
8. Ask about the breed and genetic traits.
Experienced breeders should be able to explain the differences in their Bernedoodle litters, depending on the mother and father.
9. Be prepared to be interviewed.
Reputable dog breeders will interview prospective pet parents. Their objective is to learn more about you to ensure the Bernedoodle puppy will be in a loving and caring home.
