Reviews From Our Puppy Parents
We have loved the experience we have had with Ladonna. From the minute we were put on the waitlist to the entire time we have had our puppy she has been a reliable breeder. She has so much knowledge and is always open to questions, even now with our 5 month old puppy. She goes above and beyond to send pictures and videos and keep you posted all throughout your waiting process. We have the sweetest little guy that we love so much!
We couldn’t be happier with our choice of breeder. LaDonna does so much to help her puppies get ready for their new homes and also does so much to help new owners get ready to be puppy parents. LaDonna has continued to help us with all of our questions, even since bringing him home. Her skill and caring for her puppies is worth every penny.
We recently adopted a Tri-color Bernedoodle from LaDonna and can only say how exceptional the experience was. All the parent dogs are tested and the results are shared on the website. Many other breeders do not test as thoroughly. The puppies go through a sensory program from birth so when you adopt, sounds and house items are not an issue. Potty training is also a plus. After confirming for a specific litter, we received weekly updates – pictures and videos which were super helpful so on Pick day we had a feel for which puppy we wanted. Overall you cannot go wrong with Bernedoodle Bliss. They really are top-notch breeders.
We had a wonderful experience with LaDonna. There are so many breeders out there trying to cash in, but LaDonna does all the health testing to give your puppy a healthy start. I walked away from a different breeder after putting down a deposit because of too many red flags. LaDonna also starts training and socialization early — so the puppies go home already knowing “sit” and close to being house trained. Early on, weekly videos keep you up to date on the puppies as they grow. LaDonna does a great job of getting you and your home ready for the new puppy too.
This program and this breeder, LaDonna, are top notch! We could not have asked for a better experience. Ranger came home so well socialized with some strong skills thanks to her investment in her pups. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a superior Bernedoodle.
Bernedoodle Bliss is amazing! I got my puppy, Benji, who is healthy, ethically bred and overall has become the best companion I could’ve asked for. LaDonna does a wonderful job at staying in touch. Emails, videos, photos and anything else are available at any time. She truly cares about the puppies, not only when in her care for the first 8 weeks but once they are in their forever home. I waited so long to finally get my Bernedoodle due to my military career but now that I could have the ability to bring one home, I am so thrilled that I chose Bernedoodle Bliss.
We love our puppy from Bernedoodle Bliss! LaDonna was there every step of the way to answer questions and concerns. She was in constant communication after the litter was born with pictures and videos of the litter. Remi came home and adjusted very easily to her new life thanks to all the time and effort LaDonna puts into working with her litters. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Bernedoodle. She goes above and beyond in raising her pups!
LaDonna is a perfectionist when it comes to her Bernedoodles! The puppy we received was beautiful and so healthy! Our vet called her perfect! I would recommend her puppies to anyone who wants a beautiful, healthy and well behaved (for a puppy) Bernedoodle!
We could not have had a better experience than working with LaDonna and Bernedoodle Bliss. She is kind and knowledgeable about the breed. She kept us updated with photos and cute videos, and when we arrived to pick up our puppy, we were so pleased to see her beautiful property and her adult dogs. If you’re contemplating bringing a Bernedoodle into your home, you can’t go wrong with Bernedoodle Bliss.
There are many who try to be responsible breeders by testing their breeding pairs for genetic flaws. However, there is a huge difference between producing genetically fit and family ready puppies. Getting a new puppy is scary, you go to the breeder’s facility and after spending an hour playing with the prospective puppy, you take a chance and bring home a puppy that you hope will become a well-behaved member of your family for the next 10-12 years. LaDonna takes it to another level, she is much more than just a breeder. She is a helper to the mom, nursemaid and teacher to the puppies by gently exposing them to this crazy, hectic world they have just entered. By sharing weekly videos of the litter with all perspective owners, you get to see the puppy’s personalities develop. She teaches the puppies that the “world is good and people are kind”. I am thankful every day that I can take Scout (Sutton from the NFL ll litter) with me wherever I go and he is a confident, happy, beautiful and smart little man. Thanks, LaDonna.
LaDonna is the best breeder in the country. Really cares about what she does. Stays in contact even after you’ve gone home with your puppy and shares support material.
I have had my Bernedoodle for 2 months now and she is wonderful! We are in the process of Therapy Dog Training. It has been quite easy to do because of the great foundation that was built at Bernedoodle Bliss! LaDonna is committed to giving the puppies a great start in life and it shows. She is compassionate and available to me at any time if I have questions. I am so glad I found her and waited for the perfect puppy!
I just wanted to reach out to give you an update on “Sawyer,” from the Wild West litter. We renamed her Shadow and she has been the sweetest addition to our family. She is big, strong, healthy, and full of energy! She lives in a home that has 5 little ones and has NEVER been anything but gentle in demeanor towards all who meet her. Our youngest is one years old , and he sits on her back, lays in her lap, pulls, tugs, everything, and she never flinches! I’m so grateful- she is the PERFECT dog for children and families! She has found a daycare that she’s gone to twice that gives her extra play time with other dogs her size! She’s sweet, quirky, is not a barker, never has bitten, is a bit scared of the dark, and wants to please our family the best she can.
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the incredible program and training that you’ve created for your pups. Shadow has been the greatest blessing to our family.
During the heat of the pandemic I heard a lot about the how “everyone” was getting a dog, the emptying of shelters, etc, and how people would be able to see the puppies on Facetime or on video and I thought… “How on earth can you ‘know’ what a puppy is like, choosing him or her and welcoming them into your family/home without interacting with the puppy personally?” With Bernedoodle Bliss it wasn’t just one video, it was several weekly videos that showed loads of interaction between the litter’s brothers and sisters — the best kind of interaction vs a first or second time visit from a “stranger” to a litter where the puppies are always going to be happy to see someone new. Their videos also showed the puppies progression and growth — it was huge for us and was instrumental in helping us make our decision!!
If you are searching for an ethical Bernedoodle breeder, you can trust Bernedoodle Bliss. We did our homework, searched everywhere and found LaDonna Thomas is truly passionate, has an open line of communication, is innately interested in ensuring the health & wellness of each puppy she raises and you’d be hard pressed to find a better breeder. As a longtime dog-owner, I’ve had lots of experience with different breeds and breeders, having owned 2 Tri-color Collies, a Wiredhair Terrier, a Bearded Collie, a Schnauzer and a Labrador Retriever. I’ve never come across a breeder so willing to help both before and after we brought our puppy home. One last item – – our 8-week old puppy is smart, docile, loves to snuggle, is eager to learn, and is the most beautiful dog I’ve owned! That calm temperament is due in large part to LaDonna, she does a great job with the puppies and let’s face it, getting a puppy is a big investment in your time and money and finding the right Bernedoodle breeder can be a daunting task. Do your homework, search the internet, interview breeders — but you will find getting involved with LaDonna & Bernedoodle Bliss is absolutely worth it!
