BAILEY MOUNTAIN DOODLES
Health testing is a crucial part of responsible breeding. We want to ensure that you are getting the best possible puppy. We send DNA from our dogs into genetic labs that test for multiple (over 150) genetic disorders. We also test for certain coat traits. Not all doodles are hypoallergenic and non-shedding. These tests can tell us if a dog carries a shedding gene. We avoid breeding dogs that will produce puppies that shed. Our breeding stock is minimal to non-shedding.
We also obtain OFA certifications for hips, elbows, patellas, and cardiac. We want to ensure that our breeding stock is healthy and capable of producing healthy puppies that should live a long, happy life.
Each of the breeding dogs in our program also complete the eye CERF exam.
One of the DNA test results determine percentages of our dogs. We rely on this test to provide you with a true Goldendoodle or Bernedoodle. We do not wish to incorporate other breeds to ensure a specific look. We believe that incorporating other breeds can alter or compromise the temperament and health of the dogs we breed. We chose to raise Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles because we are confident in the temperament of a Golden Retriever and Bernese Mountain Dog thus wishing to provide families with a dog of good nature. We will achieve a desired color/look by carefully selecting the proper breeding stock, not by misleading our buyers by incorporating other breeds.
