Welcome to Massachusetts Bernedoodles!

Updated May 15, 2022

Welcome to Massachusetts Bernedoodles! MBD is kennel-free, highly ethical and we are based out of Ashby, Massachusetts. To learn more about MBD, our mission and values, please click here!


We have three exciting announcements regarding

1. Waitlists

2. Our live puppy cameras

3. Openings in our Guardian Home program! Click here for more information and/or scroll down

4. Now offering “white glove” puppy delivery, personally, by MBD to California and more areas nationwide and even overseas! We never ship puppies, we deliver our babies personally, with MBD employees, for their safety and your convenience.

  • The waitlists are now open again! Both Yofi (Mini’s) and Dakota’s (Mini’s) litters have openings! Please e-mail Elisa at Elisa@MABernedoodles.com or call/text (978) 956-4838. For the adoption application, please click here.
  • Exclusive to MBD customers, our 24/7 Live Streaming Puppy Cameras! We are the only completely transparent breeder nationwide to offer eight full weeks of live puppy action! As soon as your puppy is born, you will have access to our live 24/7 puppy cams so you can see the quality of care given to all of our dogs and puppies. They are yours to from day one all the way through to “Gotcha Day” at 8 weeks old. Very few breeders offer this unlimited access because puppies poop a lot and they have bigger poops as they get bigger. That is why breeders generally don’t offer live puppy cameras and if they do, they have limited hours or they turn off right around the time is starts to get a little messy. However, puppies can’t regulate their body temperature at all until six weeks old and can’t fully control their body until eight weeks old. They are also susceptible to more because, well, their still very young and therefore have immature immune systems. Similar to human babies. Puppies under 8 weeks old should always have access to heating element to warm up for their own safety and that means a camera can always be present, even when they change rooms for socialization. We don’t hide anything and we know you know puppies poop. They even have poop parties! You’ll see! But you’ll also see everything else that goes into puppy raising which is transparent, educational and entertaining! There’s no guessing as to your pups’ life experience between 0-8 weeks old because you get to see it all in real time, live, ANYtime of the day or night. We are proud of our work here at MBD and we would love for you to be an active part of the journey to bringing your new fur baby home. Visit our adoption application and/or contact page to learn about upcoming availability!
  • MBD Guardian Homes are a huge part of our core at MBD and having a Guardian program is the gold standard for quality of care. We consider our Guardians as MBD’s extended family. Guardian homes can be for puppies and/or adults and you can even have more than one! We want our parent dogs to be happy and that means no kennels! Crates are great for house training but for safety when they’re puppies. Most breeders use kennel run which is, in our opinion, not good. Even a crate should only be used for a specific purpose, for example, house training. At MBD, we don’t use kennel runs because we have our guardians and our very own dedicated MBD Doggie Daycare, exclusively for our parent dogs. We have an excellent Guardian Home program where many of our MBD parents live except for when they “honeymoon” and when mom is ready her puppies. Moms naturally want to stay with her puppies…until right about the time all of their teeth are in. Yes, a full set of teeth X ~7 puppies = “OUCH, time to wean these babies!” Then, like an empty nester, she happily goes back to her Guardian home to enjoy her loving Guardian family. With this model, MBD will never become over crowded, dogs would never ever be over bred and they are happy happy happy dogs. GREAT NEWS! We are now accepting applications for new guardian families/homes! To learn more, please click here and then e-mail us at Elisa@MAbernedoodles.com with the subject line “Guardian Home Inquiry”


As the owner, I take tremendous pride in being a responsible and highly ethical bernedoodle breeder. My bernedoodles and their puppies are raised either with a Guardian Home or in our kennel free environment, similar to a doggie daycare, with 24/7 care and 24/7 live puppy cameras for our customers! Our puppies are cuddled and loved by people from the day they are born and you get to see it all once on the official list!

I do not believe that any dog should live their life in a kennel and/or for the sole purpose of breeding. Therefore, I have made the decision to keep the environment for my parent dogs kennel-free much like a doggie daycare! Please click the hyperlink above to take a virtual tour of MBD!

All of our parent dogs either live with guardian families or at MBD! They play together in their groups by day, in one of my six doggie play arenas, and sleep together by night! They do sleep in crates at night in order to maintain their house training, like most doggo’s. At MBD, we maintain high standards of care for every dog and puppy. They are all very well socialized, much loved and happy! This has been and always will be a very important part of our mission here at MBD- to promote highly ethical breeding practices.

When you decide to purchase a doodle pup from Massachusetts Bernedoodles, you are embarking on a journey! You get to see your puppy from the day they are born until the day they come home via the live 24/7 puppy cams! If you are looking for a puppy immediately, you won’t find one here as they are reserved well in advance because of the care and attention we put into raising these precious Doodle babies. However, on occasion, there are last minute openings!

Jackie & Sargent Pepper

You are very welcome to visit by appointment and to see the environment in which these beautiful dogs and puppies are raised!

Currently, my breeding program consists of Standard, Mini and Micro Bernedoodles. We recently began breeding F1 Micro and Mini Aussiedoodles, a Australian Shepherd mom paired with a poodle dad! These wait lists are open and accepting deposits now!

(Blue Merle Mini Bernedoodle at 9 weeks old)

There are three generations (F1, F2 and F1b) of Bernedoodles and 4 sizes (Standard, Mini, Micro and tiny) we breed at MBD. Please see the puppy pricing page for more specific information on size and generations.

A cross between a Poodle and a Bernese Mountain Dog or Saint Bernard or Australian Shepherd is known as an “F1” generation. The puppies are 50% Bernese Mountain Dog, Saint Bernard or Australian Shepard and 50% Poodle.

Another type/generation of doodle is a second generation which is called a “F2”. This is where two F1 doodles are paired to produce a litter of F2 puppies, also known as 2nd Generation (It should be called G2!). F2 Bernedoodles are also 50% Bernese and 50% Poodle and the same applies to F2 Saint Berdoodles and Aussiedoodles.

These special combinations create long living, loving, friendly, non-shedding & smart canine companions. They come in many sizes depending on the sizes of the mother and father. Colors can vary widely but generally stay to all black & white, Brown & Black, Black/white/brown, sable tri-colored and Brown and white puppies!

Every Doodle from MBD is one-of-a-kind with the most wonderful, family-friendly temperaments. It is always so exciting to see what each litter will look like! Please click on this hyperlink “What do bernedoodles look like” for examples!

Many people inquire about doodles and if they are “hypo-allergenic”. Typically, when a person is allergic to any animal, it can be the dander, saliva and/or coat that they are allergic to. As a result, it would be irresponsible to say that Bernedoodles, or any doodles, are 100% hypo-allergenic pets. However, doodles are widely accepted as the best dog for most people who have allergies.

F1 Standard Bernedoodle at 4 months old

I can say with confidence that 99% of MBD puppies will be non-shedding! Even my F1 Bernedoodle puppies rarely have a low-shedding coat. Just one puppy to date has been low shedding and he looked exactly like a Bernese Mountain Dog! Wonderful news for anyone allergic to shedding dogs!

Opa 1 puppy

Standard sized Bernedoodle puppies will take about 2 full years to reach their adult size and will range between 45-85 lbs, depending on the size of the parents. When fully grown and also depending on the parents’ sizes, Mini Bernedoodles range between 35-45 lbs. Micro’s between 20-35lbs and Tiny’s between 15-25lbs. Great for you jet-setters out there!
