Frequently asked questions
The internet makes buying a puppy directly from an breeder very convenient. It’s worked out well for us since we’ve began advertising this way, we’ve been able to find great homes for our pups all across the US.
To help us keep our puppies free of deadly, contagious disease, you will be picking out your puppy through pictures on our website or email if you have one reserved ahead of time. If you placed a deposit the remaining balance will be due when the puppy is 6 weeks old. Your deposit will be subtracted from the remaining amount due. For your safety, we use Paypal to collect our payments, a 3% convenience fee will be added.
Puppies can begin going into new homes at 8-9 weeks of age and we have a few delivery options available for you. Direct shipping to you is no longer available, if you’d like to fly in to pickup your puppy and return him/her in-cabin, we will meet you at FSD Airport [Sioux Falls SD] for no charge, MSP Airport drop-offs [Minnepolis MN] or Carver MN for in person puppy pickup for a $150 travel fee [7 hrs of driving round trip if roads and traffic are good]. If airport or Twin Cities delivery isn’t needed, we are happy to meet you at either Sanborn MN, Granite Falls MN, Worthington MN, Brookings SD or Sioux Falls SD for no charge as well.
To adopt a listed puppy on our site, use the Paypal “buy now” button by the puppy, we will then contact you to arrange delivery arrangements. If the puppy has already been adopted, the payment button will read “sold out” when trying to purchase the pup. They can find homes very, very quickly.

Yes, we offer up to a 2 yr. congenital/hereditary health guarantee. Please read our sales contract for details on what’s covered.
All our pups receive age appropriate basic puppy vaccines. You’ll be given a health record listing the vaccines and dates of wormings for you to give to your vet. It’s very important to understand that puppies are not fully immunized until all the shots have been completed in the series through 16-18 weeks of age. You shouldn’t socialize your pup around strange dogs until then. Be careful when walking them to avoid other dog waste during this time. Please do not take your pup to dog parks or pet stores until it is safe to do so. Keeping your new puppy home is the safest place for him/her until 16-18 weeks of age!
Very much so, they’re handled multiple times a day once old enough. Kids of all ages play with the puppies! This makes for a nice well-rounded puppy.
An F1 Doodle is a first generation puppy bred between a purebred Bernese Mt Dog and a purebred standard Poodle. An F1b Doodle is a Doodle bred back to a Poodle. F1b’s are best for allergy sufferers.
Bernedoodles shed much less than a Bernese Mt Dog, they will have a longer lifespan than the average Berner. They’re mixed with the intelligence of a Poodle and the lovable charm everyone desires from a Berner!
Standards will range in size 70+ lbs., Mini/Mediums 50-70 lbs, & Tiny’s 20-45 lbs. Males are typically on the larger end of each average.
No Doodles are a mixed breed and therefore cannot be registered with a purebred kennel club as they are not a recognized breed at this point. Perhaps in time they will be recognized with the AKC as they become more popular. However all of our adults are registered with the AKC, DNA’d, health and temperament tested for the best possible Bernedoodle puppies! We also occasionally have purebred BMD and Poodle litters available for homes.
