The 2021 waitlist is now closed!
As expected, our master wait list filled up quickly for our upcoming 2021 litters. With all of the challenges of Covid-19, our priority must be our family and our dogs while we have a short time before the next litters arrive. For that reason, we will be taking some time off social media and closing down our application/interview process for a short period of time. Our hope is to have at least 3 litters of bernedoodles in early 2021, and those lists are potentially full/nearly full. If you would like to adopt from us in 2021 (likely late fall), I would encourage you to follow us on Facebook AND subscribe to our e-newletter so you are notified when the Master Waitlist is re-opened. Thank you for your time and consideration as we focus on our children's distance learning needs.
We are the Tritz family. Our first Berner, Tillie, is the most loving dog we have ever known.
We’re Travis and Jessica Tritz. We live in Vesper WI on a 60 acre cranberry marsh with our 6 young children and growing dog family!
We fell in love with the Bernese Mountain Dog (BMD) breed after having a heartbreaking experience with our first family dog. When our son was bit by our malamute, we vowed to never again bring a dog into our family that we thought might hurt someone.
After years of healing and countless hours of research, we knew we'd found the right breed for our family: the Bernese Mountain Dog. Our first Berner, Tillie, makes anyone who meets her fall in love with the breed.
We knew we wanted to add a Standard Poodle to our family after we learned how intelligent, playful, and sweet they are. Having Willow around is like having another child in the house! She makes us laugh every day.
Since deciding to expand our small program, we have had the joy of adding additional Berners to our family and love each as much as the last. It’s amazing how similar they all can be, which only reinforces our love for this incredible breed. Although our house has more dog hair in it than ever, we couldn’t be happier because our hearts (and laps!!) are full!
As we continue our passion of breeding purebred BMD’s, we are also thoroughly enjoying also breeding the perfect cross of these two breeds: the Bernedoodle.
Current and Planned Litters for 2021
Get ready for puppies in 2021!
We are so excited to share we recently added a new female poodle to our program. Harper is a 30 pound tricolor moyen poodle who was bred to a 60 pound F1 tricolor bernedoodle. (These dogs are not added to our "Dogs" page yet- sorry about that!) Harper is due mid December with mini bernedoodles.
Ellie will be bred to George again, and they should welcome their first F1B mini/small bernedoodle litter around New Year's.
A repeat litter is planned from Willow and Duke, and their phenomenal Sable Tricolor (sable and white) F1 bernedoodles will be ready to go home early Spring.
Our hope is to breed Nola to Murphy for her second litter. We are SO EXCITED to add Murphy and introduce everyone to the unique coloring he produces. This unique brindle/sable coloring is similar to what we will have from our Maggie!
In 2021 we also hope to have Alexa's first litter! We had planned on having AKC puppies from her, but due to Covid-19, her export pedigree has not yet come. If we are not able to complete her AKC registration in time, we will breed her to our GORGEOUS new Tricolor Merle Standard Poodle, Lambeau.
