Bernedoodle Sizes: Standard’s (42-80lbs depending on the parents of the litter), Mini’s (35-45lbs) and Micro/Tiny’s (20-30lbs).
“The Home Run” is 1st POL (1st pick of the litter), when available, Is an additional $2000. This spot allows you to have ALL of the puppies to choose from! This is a great spot to have if you have specific preferences or needs for gender, markings, colors and personality. It’s also a great spot to have if you’re planning to train you puppy to become a service or support animal.
“On Deck” is 2nd POL, when available, is an additional $1500. This is usually the 1st male pick but not always. However, it can be (if you choose) the 1st pick for one or the other gender. This is a also great spot to have if you have specific preferences or needs.
“The Power Hitter” is 3rd POL and, when available, is an additional $1000 This is the 2nd pick for a girl or boy or 1st pick for a girl or boy IF both 1st and 2nd POL’s choose the same gender puppy!
Puppy pricing for puppy pick #4 through the last pick in the litter (always the best though!) is listed below. All of the puppies have wonderful temperaments and they are beautiful!
Please Note: The POL fee is in addition to these prices and does not come off the balance on puppy pick day. The $500 deposit does come off the balance due on gotcha day.
MINI BERNEDOODLE AND MINI AUSSIEDOODLE PRICING: The cost of a mini bernedoodle or mini Aussiedoodle is set at $4800 and micro/tiny Bernedoodle puppies are $5500 (plus 6.25% MA state tax). Smaller dogs have smaller litters which is why they are higher in price when compared to Standard Bernedoodles.
STANDARD SIZE PRICING– Bicolored and solid colored: Bi-colored and solid Standard sized Bernedoodles are priced at $4200 plus 6.25% MA state sales tax for bicolored & solid Bernedoodles born from Standard Poodles and Standard Bernedoodles.
Standard Tricolored Bernedoodles and Aussiedoodles born from any mother dog: $4500 plus MA state sales tax
Micro Bernedoodles are priced at $5500 (plus MA State sales tax)
Each puppy, regardless of coat color(s), is treated with the highest level of care including an overnight puppy caregiver, neuro-stimulation and lots (and lots and lots) of socialization! This is partly why the Bernedoodles coming from Massachusetts Bernedoodles all have wonderful temperaments- The Nurture Component! The other part is The Nature Component, of course! I have selected all of the parents based first on health and second on temperament. The first 8 weeks of life represents HALF of the critical 16 week window for socialization in puppies. After 16 weeks, their experiences (or lack of experiences) become concrete. This is why it’s so important to know what happens during whelping & weaning which represents the first 8 weeks of their lives and why I have the 24/7 live puppy cams. You don’t have to guess about what happened during the first 8 weeks of their little lives because you’ll be able to watch it anytime! What the breeder does to socialize your puppy with people, noises, other animals etc, etc combined with what you do to continue socializing your puppy until 16 weeks has a direct impact on your puppy maturing into a healthy, well adjusted adult dog. Don’t worry, we go over this in great detail on gotcha day!
The initial deposit is $500 and holds either a place on the Master F1 Standard Bernedoodle or Aussiedoodle list (born only from the BMD or Australian Shepherd mother’s) or a specific puppy pick number in a specific F2, F1b, Mini or Micro litter (ex: 4th pick in Rocky and Suzy’s F2 Standard Bernedoodle Litter planned to arrive in May 2019). The deposit comes off of the balance on puppy pick up day.
Currently, the timeframe for a puppy on the master F1 list born from BMD mothers and for a Mini Bernedoodle is for puppies born (estimated) in Winter/Spring 2020!
The current wait time for an Aussiedoodle is also for Spring 2020. Mini Aussiedoodles would be late Spring 2020. These lists are now open!
The current wait time for an F2 Standard Bernedoodle is 3 months (Rosie’s litter due in August has openings)
If you have a gender preference, your wait could be longer or shorter depending on the preferences of the families before you, the litter sizes and also the gender split of each litter born. If you specify a gender preference, you will not automatically be deferred to the next litter. You will be notified that your number is up and have the choose to stay or defer to the next litter.
Your deposit is non-refundable but it is fully transferable if you decide to defer to the next litter or a later litter. Please be certain that you’d like to be on my waitlist prior to placing the deposit. However, if you cancel or defer within 4 weeks of the puppy pick up day and it takes more than 4 weeks to find a new furever home, the $500 deposit will go towards Foundations Training for that puppy so s/he won’t miss any time during the critical 16 week socialization period. If a new home is found prior to the puppy turning 8 weeks old, your deposit will be transferred to the puppy/litter you deferred to.
Why are the deposits non refundable? It seems a bit harsh! The reason why they are non-refundable is because if they were refundable, there would be no way to know with certainty that the puppies born have loving and pre-screened families ready for them at 8 weeks old. One of the biggest aspects of being a responsible breeder is making sure every puppy will be either heading to their “forever” homes or to Foundations Training at 8 weeks old.
Why do I have the 24/7 live puppy cameras? Having the 24/7 live puppy cam allows each family to see everything we do behind the scenes during the first 8 weeks of life! It’s educational, entertaining (addictive) and completely transparent! You will get to see how the puppies are raised and see them anytime day or night! If you’re a night owl, check out the overnight puppy caregivers, Shell and Shelby, in action! It’s pretty awesome to watch them do the weights and neuro stimulation exercises!
The most important reason for the live puppy cams is the complete transparency so you know that your puppy (and next family member) is actually being raised in a healthy, nurturing environment verses bought from a puppy mill or a breeder who buys from a puppy mills and resells them to unknowing families. Unfortunately, it’s more common than you think. You’ll know they are well cared for and socialized during the first half of the critical socialization window which closes at 16 weeks. You will be able to watch them for a full month before deciding to stay or defer. This is plenty of time to decide if you’d like to stay with your current litter or defer to another one.
My goal is to make sure all of the puppies are going home or to Foundations Training for the 2nd half (8-16 weeks old) of the critical 16 week socialization window because that is what’s best for the puppies.
**POL & 2nd POL availability***
Occasionally I decide not to keep a puppy from a litter for a Guardian Home. Usually this is because I have already placed enough puppies to replace the current mom’s when they retire after 4-5 litters. When available, the pick-of-the-litter (POL) is an additional $2000, the 2nd POL is an additional $1500 and the 3rd POL is an additional $1000 which is due along with your $500 deposit to reserve the POL spot. The additional amount for 1st POL, 2nd POL and 3rd POL is not subtracted from the balance on puppy pick day. Rather, it’s the premium you pay for having the 1st, 2nd or 3rd pick in the litter. 1st POL/2ndPOL/3rdPOL aka “the premium” can be paid via the PayPal button on the puppy deposit page by increasing the quantity set at 1 which equals $500. You can also use Venmo! My handle is @Kimberly-Clinton-4
FOUNDATIONS TRAINING! What is it?
Foundations Training, which comes before basic obedience, focuses on 4 areas; crate training (the key to fast and successful house training), house training, socialization and learning through muscle memory to sit next to your feet as a default position. For example, if you’re out for a walk and a neighbor is approaching, when you stop to talk (or in certain circumstances continue to keep on walking 😉 your puppy will sit at attention rather than jumping on your neighbor or pulling you ahead. The final session is with the trainer(s) where you, the owner, will learn the commands and how to continue training at home. We will also answer your questions & set the proper expectations for a puppy at 10 weeks old. Please see the Foundations Training page and feel free to text me at (508)266-1720 if you would like to schedule a time to talk and learn more about Foundations Training!
Training & socialization are a continuous process and should be attended to throughout a dogs’ life. If they don’t use it, they will lose it!
Bernedoodles come in many colors & patterns. This is determined by the parents of each litter. Please see the pictures and captions below for examples of coat colors
Traditional Tri-Colored (also coveted). Found uniformly in F1 litters born from Bernese Mountain Dog mom’s and also in F2 litters where one or both parents are tri-colored.
Bi-Colored Bernedoodles found in F1 litters where the mom is a Standard Poodle and also in F2 litters.
****The prices reflect “pet only” pricing and come with a spay/neuter contract at or before 8 months old ****
