Ethical Bernedoodle Breeding

in Arkansas and Oklahoma

Hi! I’m LaDonna, the breeder here at Bernedoodle Bliss. We work hard to make sure we produce the healthiest Bernedoodle puppies possible. I was raised on a cattle farm on the Little Red River in Arkansas. Taking care of horses, cattle, calves, and dogs is what I grew up doing. Being a breeder isn’t far from my roots. It takes a lot of work, planning, and being very proactive with your dogs to make your own luck. We have spent many hours, researching and following other breeders and also working closely with our vet of 15 years. As an ethical breeder, we work hard to make sure our breeding program and Doodle House nursery is in top-notch condition.

Giving Back

Here at Bernedoodle Bliss, we want to give to a worthy cause. We choose to support our local animal shelter with a monthly donation of dog and cat food. We donate to year-round fundraisers that go to taking care of the animals until they are adopted.

We are also extremely proud of our country and are very thankful for our military. We offer special pricing to those who are active military members. $300 off regular price.

Will I need to groom my puppy?2020-01-28T19:33:33-06:00

Yes, Bernedoodles need regular grooming. If you brush regularly and enjoy your puppy with a shaggy coat, you can get by with a full grooming every 8 to 10 weeks. If you cannot groom your pup regularly your pup will need a full groom every 6 to 8 weeks.

Will my puppy see a vet before leaving Bernedoodle Bliss?2020-02-18T18:24:26-06:00

Yes, your puppy will see Dr. Jordan at 6 weeks and get a full head to tail check over. Doctor Jordan will give the puppies their 6-week vaccine and physical. We do not give our own vaccines at 6 weeks; we feel it’s very important that the puppies get the best quality vaccine available.

We love our new puppy! Bernedoodle Bliss was great throughout the whole process from deposit until we received her. . It was awesome to see the weekly updates from Ladonna as well as the pictures and videos as they grew older. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for bernedoodle puppy.

Bernedoodle Bliss has excellent, fast communication and works hard to send you home with a well trained puppy ready to conquer their new world with their new family. Our Hank came to us already knowing how to sit and has adjusted so well to all things (and I find myself constantly saying that’s due to the training he was given at Bernedoodle Bliss). I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new, 4 legged member for their family!

Thank you BB for such an amazing puppy! Not sure how to explain to someone how awesome Penelope is-from the day we brought her home (9weeks) she already knew how to sit, how to run back to the door from outside and loved the car ride home. I was just reading email about ENS and thought, "That explains SO much! I have never had a new puppy that explores with such ease. She is curious but in a healthy way. She loves playing but can easily calm down and just be my lapdog. My husband spent months researching breeders and I have to say, that now 4 weeks later, I am still so impressed with our puppy. She is so easy to train-seriously. The care, attention and love that went into producing these amazing dogs is no accident. I realize part of it is the breed itself but it took someone truly dedicating time,purpose, intent and mostly love to give new owners the BEST puppy possible. Yes, a new puppy is exhausting and she is not perfect....I'm kidding, she really is perfect! Thank you BB for our best decision. We are so happy with Penelope and it is because of you, she is so adaptable to any situation and carefree about new adventures.

Our beautiful tri-colored bernedoodle, Soma, came to us 3 weeks ago. She is so sweet and came with basic house training and knew the “sit” command which everyone has been so impressed with! She is such a quick learner and looks forward to “training time” every day. LaDonna was so wonderful every step of the way, sending us videos to keep us updated (and excited) for our pup to join our family. Since picking up Soma, LaDonna has been keeping in contact with us to ensure all of our needs are met and questions are answered. We were so lucky to have found Bernedoodle Bliss!

We brought home our Bernedoodle two weeks ago and we could not be happier. Palmer came to us strong and beautiful, and had a basic understanding of house training. LaDonna was very helpful throughout the entire process and kept us updated with weekly pictures and videos.
