Frequently Asked Questions

Are Reservations fully refundable?

They are non-refundable but are litter transferable.

Pictures and Updates?

Pictures are done bi-weekly at 2, 4 and 6 weeks.  We know that you are excited to see your new addition grow but please keep in mind that puppies do require a lot of attention and we do have our own family and obligations and we can't always be taking as many pictures as some would like.  We do try our best though.

Please don't Text or Email specifically asking for picture updates.

I (or someone in my home) has dog allergies, will we have issues with a Bernedoodle?

Every person’s allergy and what triggers them is different. And every dog, even within the same litter, is different. Ultimately, you may not know for certain until the dog has been exposed to you or your family member for an extended amount of time. 

Generally, a F1b or multigen have the highest chance of being most suitable for families with allergies. Many of our dogs are happily living with non symptomatic dog allergy families!

How often do Bordoodles need to be groomed?

Around 10-11 weeks of age is a good time to bring your puppy into the groomer for a short visit. Possibly a bath and brush-out, with no dryer. Or just a brush out, if your puppy is particularly weary. About 3 weeks later, do that again, but add 2-5 mins of blow-dryer time with lots of treats. Pick your puppy up soon, or even stay there for the visit. Slowly build up about every 3 weeks until your puppy can tolerate a full groom which includes bath, blow dry, nails, hair trim and brush out. Once puppy is confident with a full groom, you can move to every 6-8 weeks.  Your groomer should also have a good schedule recommendation.
