The Family of Central Illinois Doodles
At Central Illinois Doodles, we treat our dogs as family members first and breeding partners second. They are treated with compassion and respect to ensure that they live fulfilling, happy lives. Our dogs are screened for genetic conditions and orthopedic health. These high breeding standards ensure that we are one of the best Bernedoodle breeders in Illinois.
As responsible Bernedoodle breeders, we do not mass breed Bernedoodles to capitalize on the popularity and scarcity of the breed. We are committed to improving the Bernedoodle breed as a whole.
That is why we take every precaution to ensure that we only breed quality health and temperament-tested dogs. However, this may result in fewer Bernedoodle litters but better dogs. Breeding quality dogs is the best way to protect the reputation and future of our beloved breed. Breeding fewer litters is also essential to safeguarding the health and safety of our mother dogs, which is our primary concern.
While we treat our dogs like family, we are not a hobby or backyard Bernedoodle breeders. We have years of experience pairing our dogs with partners to enhance their best qualities. We know that it is not enough to breed two great dogs to produce quality litters.
We carefully select each of our pairings to ensure that our puppies inherit the strengths of both breeds. We are continuously modifying our Bernedoodle breeding strategy to ensure that we are improving the breed.
Bernedoodle breeders can produce Miniature Bernedoodles by breeding a toy or miniature poodle to a Bernese Mountain dog. Due to the parents' size difference, the father should always be the poodle to ensure the mother’s safety.
Some mini poodles tend to be more active, so Bernedoodle breeders need to ensure that the poodle fathers have calm and laid-back temperaments. To give your mini Bernedoodle the best possible chance to inherit that personality as well.
Overall the Mini Bernedoodle is the preferred size weighing between 30 lbs and 50 lbs. They make great family pets due to their smaller size and friendly personalities.
Tiny Bernedoodles are slightly different from their larger cousins, first-generation (F1) cousins. Bernedoodle breeders will mate a first-generation mini Bernedoodle with a toy poodle to produce a smaller-sized Bernedoodle. Tiny Bernedoodles may inherit more traits from the poodle breed, including a hypoallergenic coat.
Tiny Bernedoodles can be as small as 15 lbs and up to 30 Ibs. They may be a bit more high-energy than their larger cousins, as toy poodles can be somewhat more energetic. Because of their small size, tiny Bernedoodles may be better for a family with older kids or those looking for a smaller hypoallergenic dog.
A standard Bernedoodle is a first or second-generation cross between a standard poodle and a Bernese Moutain dog. They are larger, weighing up to 90 lbs, and typically feature characteristics of both breeds. Many of these dogs have wavy coats or hypoallergenic coats. F1B Standard Bernedoodles are more likely to shed less but may not have as many of the qualities of the Bernese Mountain Dog.
