Welcome to Brisbane Bernedoodles & Groodles Auustralia. We are boutique breeders specialising in standard, medium and mini American Bernedoodles (2024) and Groodles. Our Bernese Mountain Dogs and our Poodle studs will arrive in Australia from the United States in early 2024. Exciting times ahead! We will be breeding standard and medium American Bernedoodles with traditional tri markings and red, red abstract and cream groodles in standard, medium and mini sizes. We will also have our new line of Ultra Groodles (higher percentage retriever) available throughout 2023 and 2024.
Did you know?
There are a number of hybrid mixes of the Bernedoodle. At Brisbane Bernedoodles & Groodles Australia we only breed American Bernedoodles. These puppies test as 100% Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle. We love our genetics and many hours of planning has gone into finding our foundation dogs in the United States and importing them to Australia. Our foundation dogs are from European and American imported lines and in 2024 we will be bringing tri American Bernedoodles to our families!
We live on acreage in the south of Brisbane and have a few of our breeding dogs that live with us. We are huge dog lovers and can’t imagine life without our pets! Our other dogs who are part of our breeding program live in a guardian home with their families. These dogs will come home to us for a contracted amount of time (3 litters for our dams) to have their puppies before returning home to their families. This way our dogs and their puppies have the best of both worlds. A loving family who adores them, and the opportunity to experience motherhood in a loving and safe home environment.
Our breeding dogs are selected for their clear DNA panels, excellent temperaments, confirmation and colours. If you’d like to know more about our breeding program please complete the enquiry form below.
We come from a long line of breeders and show dog enthusiasts, so you could say breeding is in our blood. We are passionate about what we do and we are always striving to produce the highest quality pups for our families. Our breeding dogs are raised by our guardian families and we breed for health, temperament, hypoallergenic coats and colour.
Many of our puppies make excellent therapy dogs and go on to work each day. All our puppies are raised on a curriculum based program and this helps us identify puppies that are most suitable for therapy roles. Using our bespoke program to raise our puppies we aim to match puppies to families. We also assess all our puppies at 6-7 weeks of age over 8 key areas and share this data with families before final puppy selection.
We DNA test our dogs through Orivet in Australia, Animal Genetics and Embark in the USA and hip and elbow score our breeding dogs before they are approved to join our program.
All of our puppies come with a written health guarantee for peace of mind. If you are looking for your forever puppy please complete the enquiry form below.
At Brisbane Bernedoodles & Groodles Australia we take our dogs very seriously! Gone are the days of picking the cute puppy in the window of the pet shop. We encourage all our families to research their breeder before deciding on a puppy from them. A new puppy will one day be a dog and will most likely be a very important part of your family for the next 10-15 years. When buying a puppy it is an investment in your happiness and requires research.
At BB&G we raise our puppies on a curriculum program that we have refined over the years. This helps us identify the attributes and qualities of each of our puppies before they are matched to their families. This is especially important when we are assigning puppies for therapy work.
Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) and Early Scent Introduction (ESI) is an important part of our program for the first 20 days of a puppy’s life. As pup grows, we introduce more handling exercises and alternate puppies’ environments throughout the day. At BB&G puppies have a beautiful outdoor deck with real grass to play on in the mornings and afternoons and a purpose built outdoor grass enclosure for water play and puzzle time. Puppies have a variety of different play equipment (wobble boards, teeter tooter, practice doggy door and see saw) that encourages pups to explore different obstacles. During the evening puppies return to their indoor puppy area for quiet time before bed. We use our night time routine to teach pups downtime and prepare for bedtime and their crate. We keep their playpen free of toys and other distractions and pups curl up and watch a movie or listen to the news.
At BB&G we don’t assign any puppies to families before 6 weeks of age. This is a critical part of our program as it is at 6 weeks that we complete puppy evaluations. After we have assessed each puppy in the litter, we can guide families in selecting a puppy that fits into and compliments different family lifestyles. Each family is given a written puppy report card that highlights their puppy’s attributes and qualities.
At BB&G we undertake Fast Track puppy training with each of our puppies before they leave us to go home to their families. For one week, 2 hours a day, Susan from Gem Dog Training will work individually with each of the puppies. Puppies will learn to sit, drop roll over and loose leash walk. Fast Track puppy training provides our puppies with a routine and structure. In the early weeks setting boundaries with your new puppy is imperative. With this additional training puppies going home transition more smoothly to their families. We love the fact our puppies attend our puppy school in their last week with us!
We are firm believers in the benefits of crate training and we will explain this below. When our puppies reach 6 weeks of age it’s time for them to go to their crates at night. By the time puppies go home they will have spent two weeks in their crates and be very used to using their crate as part of their night time routine. What a lot of people don’t know is that crate training is an important part of toilet training your puppy. When puppies are confined to a crate they are not moving around and therefore don’t activate their bladders. This means puppy learns early on to hold their bladder overnight. Before we put puppies to bed we follow a night time routine to prepare them for their crates. We ask all our families to keep up crate training with their puppies until they are fully toilet trained. A crate is also a secure and safe place for your puppy to rest and sleep.
If you are looking for a compassionate friend or a kind therapist, give a call to inquire about how our breed of dogs can find a home in your property or problems.
Thanks so much to Rebecca for my beautiful boy Archie! Rebecca was great to deal with and gave plenty of updates. Puppies are cared for, socialized and given lots of love before they go to their new home. You can be confident when you’re buying from Rebecca that you’re receiving a healthy and happy pup
We can not thank Rebecca enough for our gorgeous happy, healthy fur baby Lucy-Lou !
Rebecca is an amazing caring Lady and goes beyond answering any questions and keeps you informed all the times with video and pics before and after the little puppies are born!
Would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone who is wanting a Spoodle to add to their Family
I would highly recommend Rebecca. We recently took home our beautiful spoodle girl Mirren. She is such a healthy and happy girl. Throughout our experience dealing with Rebecca she was incredible. We received regular updates, pictures and videos which kept us engaged throughout. Thanks Rebecca to you and your handsome boys for taking such good care of Mirren
