SOCIALIZATION

All of our puppies are raised using Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) and Puppy Culture Protocol to give them the best start in life. We also base much of our developmental exposure activities off of a program by Jeanette Forrey, Called The Ultimate Badass Breeder's Guide. Her program gives breeders the tools to raise pups on an advanced puppy curriculum that promotes HAPPY, STABLE AND EMPOWERED puppies! From the moment our puppies are born, they are handled daily by the breeder (Jessica), our CWB teammates, friends and family who come to visit and help socialize. They are exposed to a variety of sights, sounds, smells and tastes on a regular basis. By teaching these puppies that all these experiences are a normal part of life from the very beginning, it helps them better adapt to stress and changes and new situations over the course of their life! We are the only breeder in the Midwest that has 24/7 care for our puppies. In doing so, we are able to watch over our fragile newborns and ensure their safety in those first couple weeks and also provide structured curriculum time and attention to older our litters. We feel our adult dogs and our puppies deserve this dedicated time and attention, which we enjoy sharing with our adoptive families through the use of social media. 

Our HIGHLY STRUCTURED PUPPY CURRICULUM begins when the puppies are 3 days old and continues until they meet their families at 8 weeks of age. The focus of our program is to raise not only HEALTHY puppies but also puppies who can adjust and adapt in the REAL WORLD to be happy and playful loving members of your family. We understand the importance of early exposure and incorporate an extensive list of different stimuli into their daily care. The best part of our puppy curriculum is that OUR FAMILIES GET TO BE A PART OF IT, TOO! Through the use of our private litter Facebook groups, we can showcase all the different milestones these puppies go through in the countless pictures and videos we share. Puppies change SO QUICKLY, and each stage of development brings newfound joy and laughter that we pass along to our families on a daily basis. Based on the feedback we consistently get- our families absolutely LOVE this part of our adoption process! 

We raise both Bernedoodles and purebred Bernese Mountain Dogs. We just love our little fluff balls and personally experience the joy of owning a Bernedoodle AND Bernese Mountain Dogs. Their sweet disposition, easy-going temperament and loyalty is unparalleled in any other breed. It's no surprise that they are becoming one of the most popular doodle breeds!

 

Striving to be better!

We proudly follow the BAB program.

Over the years we have taken our program to new levels, but we have always had one goal in mind- breeding THE BEST family dogs. It will always be our mission to raise healthy, well-rounded and socialized puppies and to give them and their families all the tools needed to have a successful and happy life! The BAB Program combined with the support of its base is empowering breeders like us to not only reach our goals, but EXCEED THEM!

OUR NURSERY

We're THRILLED with the addition of our NEW PUPPY GYM for enrichment activities!

Our nursery is a space we are very proud of. When I was designing a space I wanted to raise puppies in, I wanted it to be welcoming, clean, feel like a home and tranquil. I call the nursery "my happy place" and it continues to bring joy to all those who step through our doors.

 

Each momma has her own whelping room, which she begins getting settled into about 5 days prior to her due date. She has access to her own space within her whelping room for taking breaks from her puppies when needed, and our live feed security cameras allow us 24/7 access to watch over her and her pups during those initial, critical days and weeks especially. 

As the puppies get older, their whelping area expands and mom spends less time devoted to her puppies. We slowly begin introducing toys into their whelping area and expand their exposures each week. Each litter has access to our Puppy Gym, with a wide variety of activities to challenge them, explore and enjoy.
