From the very beginning, Central Illinois Doodles has been a family-run business. With my wife and children, we’ve become one of the most reputable Bernedoodle puppy breeders in Illinois! Family front and center — we started raising puppies from our pedigree Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle, nurturing a profoundly cute, friendly and lovable litter of Bernedoodles. Tons of space in our beautiful country home in Central Illinois gave us the option to offer the best of both worlds – a playful, cuddly pup and the knowledge of breeding Bernedoodles.

Since then, families from Chicago, the Ohio Valley and even New York have entrusted us with producing happy and healthy high-quality first-generation and F1B Bernedoodle puppies that make excellent family pets. When it comes to dog breeds, Bernedoodles are one of the most sought-after breeds in the country, let alone the world. These lovable family dogs are for novice first-time puppy owners and experienced dog lovers. We don’t consider ourselves as a “Bernedoodle puppies for sale” outfit, rather a come to find your next furry friend that will be by your side, thick or thin outfit.

Why We Are the Best Bernedoodle Breeder in Illinois

At Central Illinois Doodles, we treat our dogs as family members first and breeding partners second. Our new litters are treated with compassion and respect to ensure that they live fulfilling, happy lives. Our dogs are screened for genetic conditions and orthopedic health. We even back this up with our amazing two year health guarantee. These high breeding standards ensure that we are one of the best Bernedoodle breeders in Illinois.

Quality over Quantity

As responsible Bernedoodle breeder in Illinois, 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. As stated above, even though we have bernedoodle puppies for sale in Illinois, we put health, family and pride first and foremost.

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. But to become a top breeder, it means you have to breed top-tier litters. Breeding quality dogs is the best way to protect the reputation and future of our beloved breed. As a responsible Bernedoodle breeder fewer litters are also essential to safeguarding the health and safety of our mother dogs, which is our primary concern.

Experience Bernedoodle Puppy Breeders in Illinois

We don’t mean to repeat ourselves, but it is critical for you to know who we are! 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 Parents On-Site

All responsible Bernedoodle breeders in Illinois will allow you to visit their nurseries to see where their pups are born and raised. Our dogs are indeed a part of our family which means many of the dogs we use for breeding live right in our home. At the same time, it is essential to use some outside dogs to maintain genetic diversity.

You should always be allowed to meet the mother to determine if she is a good temperament dog with a lovely personality. Bernedoodles will often inherit their characters from their parents. So this is a great way to see what your puppy might look like as an adult and see what size they will be.

Top-Notch Care

In addition to our expert Bernedoodle breeding practices, we provide exceptional care to all the dogs on our property. They enjoy premium dog food, top-notch veterinary care, stimulating activities and exercise, and of course, lots of love and affection from our entire family.

Life-Long Breeder Support

With a constant rotation of Bernedoodle puppies for sale, choosing Bernedoodle breeders that provide life-long breeder support is one of the many essential things to consider when selecting a breeder.

At Central Illinois Doodles, we are committed to your pet for life and can help answer any questions you might have about caring for your pet. While we try to place our dogs strictly in forever homes, we understand that life happens. Suppose you are unable to continue caring for your Bernedoodle. In that case, we will welcome them back until we can find them another loving home.

The Central Illinois Doodles Difference

We began our Bernedoodle breeding program as a project inspired by our love for these incredible dogs and the breeds that allow us to create them. Still, we felt that many families would benefit from the smaller dogs with low to non shedding coats.

That is when we discovered all the fantastic benefits of doodles! Today we have grown our program and built a reputation as one of the best Bernedoodle breeders in the Midwest and have families from all over the country adopting our Bernedoodles. 

We love helping people connect with these fantastic pooches! Our top priority is the happiness of our dogs and the families who welcome them into their homes. We are committed to finding the right home for each pet we place.
