  • How easy are these breeds to train?
    All three of our featured breeds, Mini Bernedoodles, King Charles Cavaliers, and Cavapoos, are known for their intelligence and trainability. They tend to be quick learners and eager to please, making them relatively easy to train with consistent, positive reinforcement methods.
  • Can we meet the parents of the puppy?

  • Where have the puppies been cared for, a Kennel or a house?
    Our pups are cared for and raised in our nursery by our full-time staff.
  • Do these breeds require a lot of grooming?
    The grooming needs can vary between these breeds. Mini Bernedoodles may require regular brushing due to their longer, wavy coats. King Charles Cavaliers have a silky coat that requires consistent brushing and occasional grooming. Cavapoos also need regular brushing and grooming to maintain their fluffy coats. Keeping up with grooming needs can help prevent matting and maintain their overall health and appearance. Knots and tangles are kept to a minimum and their coat is free of parasites when combed regularly. Ears need particular attention and should be checked and given a quick combing every few days, daily in shedding season. These breeds do shed, particularly in spring and fall, but a little all the time. Their nails should be clipped and the hair between their pads trimmed once a month. No other trimming is necessary (or allowed) in the show ring. They are naturally clean dogs. Because too much bathing dries out the skin and hair coat, they should not be bathed more than once a week. Many owners find that bathing their pets every two months is quite adequate.
  • Are these breeds hypoallergenic?
    While no dog breed is completely hypoallergenic, some individuals from these breeds, particularly the Cavapoos, may be better suited for people with allergies due to their lower shedding tendencies and hair rather than fur. However, it's essential to spend time with the specific dog you plan to adopt to see how your allergies react.
  • Do Cavaliers travel well?
    People who travel find it easy and pleasant to take their Cavaliers along. Their strong desire to be with their owners makes them willing travelers. Their size and personality contribute to their welcome at “dogs allowed” hotels, marinas, and campgrounds.
  • Are these breeds good with children?
    These breeds love to interact with their owners and enjoy activity and play, making them especially close friends and confidants for children. They are excellent with children.
  • How many litters is this for the mom and dad?
    The dad's obviously sire far more litters than each mom will have before being retired. We breed the moms no more than twice in an 18-month period, meaning we skip a heat/breeding cycle in that time; our moms will usually have 4-6 litters with us. The moms are retired, spayed, and re-homed at the age of 5.
  • Do you work on house training or crate training before puppies go home?
    Most of the pups leaving at 8-10 weeks have very basic training, but additional training is available for an added fee.
  • Can I visit your facility to see puppies?
    Scheduled visits are welcome. A call beforehand though is important to check on availability, as well as going over preferences and processes.
  • It seems people make a deposit to a "specific" puppy of their interest, instead of choosing one on their visit to your place. Is this how it works there?
    People are always welcome to choose in person, but a call beforehand makes things much easier if we can narrow down their choices. Also important for us and part of our protocol, is to know at least 2 days ahead what pups someone wants to choose from.
  • How much exercise do Cavaliers need?
    Cavaliers need either a moderate size fenced-in yard in which to run, or a minimum of one good walk each day (in addition to potty walks). If their owners want walking companions, Cavaliers can build up over time to much longer walks. Regular exercise is very important for a Cavalier's heart. Even older Cavaliers should be encouraged to go up and down stairs.
  • What genetic testing is done?
    We genetically test the parents for the known genetic disorders in their breeds. Cavalier King Charles's parents are tested for DM, EF, CKCSID, and PRA-PRCD. Bernese moms are tested for DM, VWD1 & VWD2, SOD1B, PRA-PRCD. Poodle parents are at least tested for DM, NEWS, CDDY, CDPA, PRA-PRCD, and VWD1. Each parent must also pass a pre-breeding physical.
  • What is the typical lifespan of these breeds?
    Mini Bernedoodles, King Charles Cavaliers, and Cavapoos typically have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years when properly cared for. Providing a healthy diet, regular exercise, and routine veterinary care can contribute to a longer and healthier life.
  • Can I leave my puppy outdoors all the time?
    These breeds are indoor dogs. While they are sturdy and hardy and can thrive in both cold and hot climates, they are not dogs to be left outdoors. Your dog should have a safe place in your house where it may be left during the day. The younger the puppy, the more restricted the area should be.
  • Do these breeds get along well with other pets, like cats or other dogs?
    Generally, Mini Bernedoodles, King Charles Cavaliers, and Cavapoos tend to get along well with other pets when properly socialized from a young age. Early introductions and positive interactions can help foster good relationships with other animals in the household.
