Welcome to Massachusetts Bernedoodles!
Updated May 5, 2018: Welcome to Massassachusetts Bernedoodles and Goldendoodles, a home-based, loving small-scale breeder out of Massachusetts! I have just updated the available puppy page with new and exciting announcements! As the owner, I take tremendous pride in being a responsible doodle breeder. My doodles and their puppies are raised in my home and cuddled by people from the day they are born. 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 my business of breeding doodles small so that everyone can live in the house together. When you decide to purchase a doodle pup from me, you are welcome to visit my home to see the environment in which these beautiful dogs and puppies are raised.
I breed three generations (F1, F1 & F1b) of Bernedoodles and 3 sizes (Standard, Mini & Micro/tiny): A cross between a Poodle and a Bernese Mountain Dog, known as “F1” Bernedoodle. The puppies are 50% Bernese Mountain Dog and 50% Poodle. Another type of Bernedoodle is a second generation hybrid called an F2 Bernedoodle, where two F1 Bernedoodles are paired to produce a litter of F2 puppies. Finally, there is the F1b Bernedoodles which is when a Bernedoodle is paired with a poodle. F1B’s are 25% Bernese and 75% Poodle. These special combinations create loving, friendly & smart canine companions. They come in many sizes depending on the size of the mother and father. Colors can vary widely but generally stay to all black, black & white, Brown & Black, Black/white/brown, sable and all brown. Every Bernedoodle is one-of-a-kind with the most wonderful, family-friendly temperaments. It will be so exciting to see what each litter will look like!
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.
I can say with confidence that my F2 Bernedoodle puppies will almost always be non-shedding because the parents are beautiful, non-shedding, standard sized doodles. F1 Bernedoodle or Goldendoodle puppy litters may have a few low-shedding puppies since they are 50% poodle and 50% Bernese or Golden Retriever.

Standard sized Bernedoodle & Goldendoodle puppies will take about 2 full years to reach their adult size and will range between 45-85 lbs. when fully grown depending on the parents’ sizes. Mini Bernedoodles range between 25-45 lbs and Micro/Tiny Bernedoodles range between 10-25lbs.
