Frequently Asked Questions

Both Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles are wonderful canines, and many people understandably fall in love with both breeds, making it difficult to decide on a new puppy. To help you, we have created a detailed breed comparison page; click this link.

Generally, male puppies are considered better than female due to their friendly and laid-back nature. In comparison, females tend to be more independent, sometimes territorial and dominant. However, with proper training, both genders can make great companions. Males tend to have an easier time with obedience training than females. Remember that each puppy has a unique personality, so it’s important to consult with a breeder to determine which gender would be the best fit for your home.

No, at this time, we don’t microchip our puppies. But if you would like to have your puppy microchipped, we can accommodate the request for an additional $45. We use and recommend the AKC Reunite microchips as they have a lost dog database.

While we personally don’t offer extended training. We highly recommend finding a professional trainer in your area unless you have the time and commitment to training a puppy. You’ll never regret spending the extra time training your puppy. Remember, a well-trained dog will always be a happy, friendly dog.

Yes, we highly recommend getting pet insurance for your pet. The pet insurance company we use and recommend is Trupanion. All of our puppies are sent home with 30 days of pet insurance. While we do our very best to raise puppies that will live long, healthy lives, always remember even healthy puppies like children can become sick, so it’s always best to be prepared. Having pet insurance will give you that special peace of mind to make the best decisions for your pet.

All our Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles are fed a very high-quality diet. TLC Pet Food has met and exceeded our expectations, not to mention our puppies love their food!
