Updates, Adoption Fee, Deposit, Waiting List, Questionnaire, Recommendations on Owning a Bernedoodle and Sample Contract

9-30-2020 - All previous updates have been removed.
9-29-2020 - Now both other dams have come into season. They will be bred mid next month.
10-13-2020 - Two dams were bred a total of 5 times last week via artificial insemination when their progestrone levels were appropriate. The puppies would be born around December 13 and go home in mid February. They were bred to the sires shown on the Puppies/Parents page.
10-22-2020 - This site was updated to reflect current placement and future breedings. 10-26-2020 - An x-ray to determine the number of puppies that will be born in mid December from 2 dams is not safe until the first week of December. Once that is learned, a post will be made here.
11-16-2020 - Sorry for the delay - I am very certain that one is pregnant but the other is too early to tell. Once they are near birth, (4 days out) I will do an x-ray. Normally, before that, I would take them to the clinic every Wednesday for a weigh in but with Covid, that is a bit more difficult since clinics are not available for non essential requests. Around December 9, 10 plus, I am looking forward to seeing what I/we have. I'll be in touch and send more updates as well as the x-rays.

Pretty 2 2018 Litter Pretty 3

Adoption Fee effective October 1, 2020:
Tri-colored and sables are $4,300; black and white (Bi-colored) $3,300, and for those that mainly black with a touch of white are $2,300. A $500 non-refundable deposit lines up owners to make their pick of a puppy at 6 weeks with the final payment due upon pick-up at 8 weeks. Owners can start viewing the pups at 3 weeks and weekly thereafter (on Saturdays) until they go home.
Depending on the sire, 5-8 puppies are expected in each litter. The families shown below will be choosing based on the date of their deposit. Once a deposit is placed, the owner has the option of the current litter, or to wait for a future litter. If identified, their preference of sex and coloring is shown. If there are enough puppies available and the owner does not choose a puppy from either litter, their deposit is forfeited. In the event a breeding is not successful the owner will be offered a refunded.

Questionnaire, Sample Contract, Recommendations on owning a Bernedoodle:
To fill out a questionnaire - pdf version or questionnaire - word version for owning a puppy, click on the link shown.

You should also review the contract, that the questionnaire references. It is intended to protect both parties and is signed off on upon pick-up of the puppy.

To view recommendations about owning a Bernedoodle choose the link provided.

Based on when the dams come into season, below is when puppies would go home. The rollover spots are saved in the event there are not enough puppies to adopt from the prior litter or if a family decides to wait for the coloring/sex they desire. When submitting their deposit, sometimes, families want to receive their pup in at a certain time of year so a date at times, might look out of order.

If anyone can think of something more fair, please advise.
