We wanted to help you plan ahead for your new puppy. Here is a list of items that we use and believe would be beneficial to you as well. Look through this list and plan ahead so whenever you get your precious Bernedoodle home you are ready to spoil and enjoy them!
This was highly recommended to us by our veterinarian. We feed this to all of our dogs and puppies. This is high-quality food and is the best for the puppy’s tummies, skin, and coat. We recommend they stay on this food at least for its first year.
This keeps your pet comfortably off the floor, the design promotes and increases airflow on all sides and creates low impact areas to pressure points and joints. It is easily cleaned with a water hose and dries quickly!
An exercise pen is another great option for house breaking. Helping to keep your Bernedoodle safe and contained, exercise pens can be used in conjunction with a crate so the puppy can go in and out as they please. This can help alleviate some of the whining and crying that can occur as they adjust to their crate. If you can’t supervise your puppy 100% of the times keep them in the exercise pen to avoid accidents in the floor.
All of the steps and training we take give our puppies such a good head start. Yes it’s more work for us, but we believe at the end of our 8-week journey we have done our best to make the puppies stronger, healthier, smarter, and more trainable. We believe these protocols are the best and the right steps to take for our puppies and puppy buyers.
We will introduce these training methods, and the puppies will go home with a good foundation, but you will need to continue the lessons as 8-week old puppies are too young to be fully trained.
ENS Training- Early Neurological Stimulation studies have shown that stimulating a puppy early in its life gives the puppy a great head start on life. Dr. Carmen Battaglia explains it in more detail here in this short video. We think ENS training is great for puppies, therefore we have implemented this training into our program.
