The 2021 waitlist is now closed!
As expected, our master wait list filled up quickly for our early 2021 litters. Until AFTER the last 2 litters are here the end of January, we are closing down our application/interview process. If you would like to adopt from us in 2021 (likely late summer/early 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. For more detailed information regarding our program and tentative plans for adoptions in 2021, please refer to our most recent newsletter.
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!)
** Update: Harper welcomed 6 puppies in December.
Ellie will be bred to George again, and they should welcome their first F1B small bernedoodle litter the last week of July.
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.
I am not sure what Nola is doing- my fear is that she is splitting her heat cycle again. When she is ready, our hope is to use Lambeau for his first sired litter. Updates on these two will come as we know more.
In 2021 we also hope to have Alexa's first litter! This will be a breeder exclusive litter only, however will do plan on keeping back a couple females and one male from this pairing. If you are interested in being a guardian, please indicate that on your application.
