What is a Bernedoodle?
A Bernedoodle is a cross between a poodle (any size) and a Bernese Mountain Dog.
Why a Bernedoodle?
You get the goofiness, intelligence and clown-like nature of the poodle along with the calm, gentle, loyal nature of the Bernese. Also, you get the longevity and fewer health issues of the poodle in contrast to the shorter lifespan of the Bernese. A poodle's lifespan can average 12-15 years whereas the Bernese averages 7-10 years (both depending on genetics (testing and careful breeding.... our parents have been tested for breed specific health issues). A Bernedoodle is low shedding.. good for people with allergies. A Bernedoodle is a great companion dog.... they want to be at your side, whether outside chasing a ball, playing in the water, etc. or curled up on the couch beside you. This breed does thrive on human interaction so, if you do not have time for a dog, this may not be the breed for you. Please do not consider one of our puppies unless you plan for it to be
your lifelong companion and a very spoiled couch potato.
I have been raising Shih Tzu for over twenty years and I love the breed for their adaptability and incredible personality but I have always loved big dogs, too. For many years, we had a house full of boxers (pets only) and I now have a huge Great Pyrenees, Amos "to protect my little doggies" and a female Bernese Mountain Dog named Maggie. Our family has always had a variety of dogs and a love of all animals. My grandson, Dalton, and his wife, Natalie, who live in the farmhouse on our mini farm, have a male Bernese Mountain Dog, Sutton, and, when Natalie suggested we raise Bernedoodles, our interest piqued and we began researching. I talked it over with my veterinarian (who has a standard poodle of her own) and the idea turned into reality. My oldest daughter, Kathy, and her husband, Lane, adopted a beautiful chocolate and white standard poodle, Abby, and are spoiling her, along with two of my Shih Tzu rugrats, Pork Chop and Jasmine. They will be raising the puppies in their home... along with a little help from me and lots of attention and spoiling by all the kids, grandkids and great-grandkids.
Our first litter of baby Bernedoodles has arrived born February 10, 2021. We are so excited! Stay tuned for updates and pictures. These are standard size Bernedoodles, weights expected to be 60-80 lb., no guarantees. Prices to range between $3000- 4000 based on color and markings. Scroll down for pictures.

Meet the Daisypatch Kids
#1 Female - "Kena"
#2 male - "Elvis"
Elvis is full of personality, just like his namesake. He will draw attention anywhere he goes. He has lots of energy and loves to play with his littermates and with us. He is definitely "the King".
Elvis has gone to his new home and has a new best friend, Tessie, as well as several border collies. Who knows.. he might just become a herding dog.
#3 Female - "Lollipop"
#4 Male - "Chunky Monkey"
Chunky Monkey is like a big, cuddly teddy bear. He enjoys playing with his littermates and with us but seems to equally enjoy cuddling in our laps and getting belly rubs. I think he is going to be the biggest couch potato.
Chunky monkey, aka Milo, has found his new best friend and is getting lots of belly rubs and loving from Gabi
Gabi and Milo
#5 Female - "Saylor"
#6 male - "Bermuda"
Bermuda, so named for the tiny triangle of white on the back of his neck, has a very sweet personality and uses all his charm to coerce his littermates or us to play with him. How can you say "no" to that cute little face and those eyes? He is the most playful but also wants to be right by your side wherever you go. He is the perfect companion puppy.
Puppies have been raised inside our home and accustomed to the sights and sounds of our other dogs, household noises, traffic noises, young children, etc. We play music for them day and night. During the day, 80s, 90s, jazz, country, rock, pop. At night, they hear classical and night sounds, including a severe thunderstorm which did not bother them at all. All puppies are handled daily, touching every part of their body, including face, mouth, tail, feet, and ears. They are held on their backs to help them become submissive. They have had grooming clippers (no blade) run over their entire body so they get used to the sound and feel to prepare them for their first trip to the groomer. Nails have been clipped several times. They drink from water bowl as well as water bottle. Puppies will have had their first set of puppy vaccinations, been wormed every 2 weeks and been checked by our veterinarian and also micro chipped before leaving for their forever homes. They come with a written health guarantee. Each puppy has been dna tested and paperwork will be supplied along with their health record. Each puppy will go to its new home with a personalized tote bag (with its picture). Included is a folder with pertinent information and CKC puppy registration, a book on Bernedoodles, blanket with momma's scent, toys, sample of the food they are eating, puppy shampoo, comb, brush, collar and leash.
We are now taking and reviewing applications for the above puppies. No deposits will be accepted unless your application has been approved. If your application is approved, we will notify you via email. Deposits are NON-refundable. Deposits are not taken until you have chosen your puppy at approximately 4-6 weeks of age so that we have some idea of size and temperament of each puppy. Deposits only refundable due to illness or death of puppy prior to you receiving puppy. This is a life time commitment so please consider this carefully before making a deposit to hold a puppy. As a breeder, we recognize that unexpected, unfortunate events can happen and, should you at any point not be able to care for this puppy/dog, we reserve the right to take said puppy/dog back and find a suitable home for it.
