When you decide you want to look at Bernedoodle puppies, the first thing you need to do is to start thinking about how to find the best Bernedoodle breeder. To help you find the perfect fluffy Bernedoodle puppy to bring home, we recommend asking potential breeders the following questions:

 

1. What dogs did the breeder use?

Bernedoodles are a mixture of the Bernese Mountain dog with a poodle. The litter will vary based on the size of the poodle, colors of the dogs, and so on. For instance, with smaller poodles, you tend to end up getting smaller Bernedoodles.

 

2. How long have you been breeding Bernedoodles?

You will want to know how long the breeder has been breeding Bernedoodles to determine their expertise. If they haven’t been breeding for long, ask how familiar they are with Bernedoodles. The breeder may have been raising Bernedoodles for years and recently decided to get into breeding. So, this type of breeder would be a good choice, too, since they are equally familiar with the breed.

 

3. How do you socialize your Bernedoodle puppies?

Some breeders use a more “corporate” approach, meaning they are turning out litters as fast as they can, and socialization is not a top priority for them. You want to look for a small or family-operated breeder who has the time to ensure the puppies get plenty of socialization around adults, children, and other pets so they will be well-adjusted and perfect for any home.

 

4. Can I visit your location to see the Bernedoodles?

Reputable breeders will allow you to stop by for a visit to check out the puppies and pet parents in person. This is a great opportunity to see how the dogs are treated, how well they are cared for, and how well they interact with others.

 

5. Do you take care of all their vaccinations before I bring them home?

You want a breeder who will make sure all vaccinations and deworming procedures are current before you bring your new puppy home. The breeder should provide you with records showing what vaccines they have received, the dates of the vaccinations, when they were dewormed, and a health certificate.

 

6. What type of guarantee do you offer for my new puppy?

Make sure to find out if your puppy comes with a “warranty.” Most breeders will offer a one-year guarantee that the puppy will be free from health defects and congenital defects.

 

7. Do you have references or other customers we can contact?

A breeder should be able to provide you with a list of professional references like veterinarians and previous customers who are willing to share their experiences with the breeder. If they won’t provide these, you should look for a different breeder.

 

8. Do you offer follow-up assistance after I bring my Bernedoodle puppy home?

Most breeders are happy to provide follow-up assistance to answer questions you may have about your new Bernedoodle puppy. They understand that being a new Bernedoodle pet parent can come with questions or concerns you forgot to inquire about previously.

 

9. Do you provide a new puppy care kit when I pick up my puppy?

To help make the transition from their current environment to your home, breeders will often provide a new puppy care kit. The kit often includes the puppy’s favorite blanket that has the scent of their mother and siblings on it, toys they enjoy playing with, a bag of puppy food they have been eating, information sheets, and other such things.

Having these things ensures your puppy will transition more easily to your home because they will still be comforted by the smells in their blanket and will have familiar toys and food.

By remembering to ask these questions, you are sure to find the best Bernedoodle breeder. To learn more about Bernedoodle puppies and Bernedoodle puppies for sale, please feel free to contact Oodles of Doodles by filling out our online form today!
