The Best Of Both Worlds!
"Designer breeds" is the common name given to dogs deliberately bred from two different breeds to produce another "super" breed that inherits the best traits of each separate breed.
Our specialty is breeding Bernese Mountain Dogs and Golden Retrievers with Poodles, to produce the ever popular Goldendoodle and Bernedoodle.
Are Designer Breeds Right For Me?
Due to their Poodle sire, our dogs are known for their gorgeous low-shed coats, making them ideal for low allergy needs.
Strong & Healthy
Designer breeds inherit the best of each breed, and are known to be stronger and healthier than their purebred cousins.
Our dogs are frequently utilized as service dogs, due to their intelligence, ease of training, and people-centric personalities.
