We are based in the rural mountains of Central Utah. Our home and training facility is completely off the grid where we are dependent on solar power, water well and septic. We have 23 acres and are backed to the national forest where our children and animals have ample freedom to explore and play. Our children our homeschooled and each play a role in our breeding and training program. We are a dog loving family obsessed with our Bernese Mountain dogs and of course we love our poodles just as much, Our Bernedoodle puppies are the best of both worlds and they bring so much joy to our lives.
