Picking Up in Illinois

1st Choice
If you prefer to come out to our home and pick up your Bernedoodle in person. This will allow you to meet your puppy's parents and also give you the opportunity to visit our beautiful nursery to see where our puppies are born and raised.

Central Illinois Doodles offers a few traveling options for your new Bernedoodle baby straight to your airport. Puppies must be at least eight weeks old and have been weaned for at least five days for air travel. You can securely and humanely fit your new pup in a special pet carrier and take them in the cabin as a carry-on bag. 

You will need to place your carrier on the floor by your feet and the puppy will need to stay in the carrier until you land at your California airport. There’s usually a fee of $100-$150 in addition to the cost of your ticket. Carriers cost $30 and up.

Some airlines may not allow dogs in the cabin at all and will transport them as cargo in a heated and ventilated hold -- we do not partner with these airlines and your puppy will never be placed in cargo!  So please make sure you research what airlines allow pets to travel in-cabin as carry-on.

Delivering to California 

2nd Choice
We also offer a pet nanny service to deliver your Bernedoodle puppy to your closest California airport. Our experienced pet handlers provide the highest care level for your new Bernedoodle puppy. Your puppy is seated with their pet nanny on the airplane and never leaves their side.

Are Bernedoodles Good with Kids?

The Golden State has many fan-favorite breeds, but these little guys are furry, lovable, gentle canines.

And because of their playful nature and love of the outdoors, the mild California weather is perfect for them to get their year-round exercise! Not to mention they’re great runners who can keep kids outside playing for hours.

Why should I avoid puppy mills?

For one, Puppy mills are illegal in most states, including California. They breed Bernedoodle puppies for sale solely to make a profit. They don’t have any regard for the health or safety of the puppies. Often mother dogs are subjected to cruel treatment and are not given the proper care or nutrition to have healthy Bernedoodle puppies. Not only does this put the puppies at risk, but it can harm the mother and result in genetic defects and a shorter lifespan.

How Do I Know a Bernedoodle is Good Where I Live in California?

Your pup will love the soaring mountain peaks in the Far North, the tranquility of lakes in the East, picking your next designer bag in Beverly Hills, driving with the top down along the Central Corridor, sit patiently while you enjoy a glass of Pinot in Wine Country and stand by your side along the trails of the San Francisco Bay. In short, no matter where you are in California, a Bernedoodle is right for you.
