Current Litters

We love welcoming puppies.  There is nothing better than sitting with a whelping mother and watching her give birth to one beautiful puppy after another.  We assist as needed: making sure each puppy gets out of the amniotic sac in a timely fashion and that mama severs the umbilical cord with her teeth.  We often extract fluids from a puppy’s lungs, throat, mouth, and nostrils and make sure we hear the life-affirming squeak that tells us that everything is okay.  Sometimes there are challenges, like stalled labor or complications of birth.  We stay ready for all kinds of situations.

Once all the puppies have safely arrived, there is a wonderful sense of peace in the whelping room.  The new mother settles down and finds a comfortable spot.  The puppies all find her teats, some with a little help.  They are warm and satisfied, ready to start their new life outside the womb.


Stella’s Cockapoos
Born January 22, 2022

Stella – American Cocker Spaniel

Apollo – Miniature Poodle


It was a cold winter morning when Stella gave birth to her puppies.  The early stages of labor started the evening before so we were prepared.  The first puppy was tiny and sadly did not make it.  The five others were strong and healthy: so full of color and life.

Stella is an experienced mother who knows how to care for her newborns.  She still needed a little help getting them out of their amniotic sacs so that she could clean them and guide them to her teats.  As always, it was a beautiful sight to see the puppies nurse and Stella drifting off to sleep after seven hours of active labor.

The Beatles Litter

Choosing a litter theme is always fun. In fact, we have a computer folder full of theme ideas, ranging from winter weather to fall apples. This time we chose to name the puppies after Beatles songs.

We have always loved the Beatles. Their songs are classic; it is impossible not to sing along. The harmonies are perfect. The lyrics appear simple, but they are full hidden meaning. The Beatles were inventive, playful, and creative, and their themes of peace and love resonate with us.

Our customers say

Mette was amazing to work with. She responded immediately when we inquired about our boy Zimmer, answered any and all questions we had. Her description of him was spot on, and you can tell she takes amazing care of these puppies before getting to their forever homes. She continues to post and stay in contact with us and Zimmer’s littermates’ owners. It’s so joyful for us to hear about Zimmer’s siblings, a caring touch you won’t get anywhere else besides Bluff County Bernedoodles. We are so thankful to her for allowing us to bring Zimmer into our family. He’s a healthy, loving, smart puppy.

You can’t go wrong getting a puppy from BCB! A small family operation with the puppies born and raised in their home knowing nothing but love from day one! We loved our entire experience, such great people. Our cockapoo Huck is now 9 months old, the sweetest boy ever and very healthy. We made the best decision ever to get our pup from Bluff Country!

Bluff Country Bernedoodles are fantastic at what they do! From the very first interaction, I was impressed and our entire experience was everything we expected and more. They worked with me when a late winter storm necessitated a change in pick-up plans and helped to ensure the transition to our home was easy for everyone involved. We are all in love with our sweet puppy, and highly recommend Bluff Country Bernedoodles to anyone looking to add a furry family member!

I highly recommend Bluff Country Bernedoodles! From the moment I found them when I was looking for a miniature Poodle, Mette has been completely nice and helpful and has answered all my many questions very promptly. She loves her dogs, is incredibly knowledgable, and raises the pups in her home with complete care and love. I just got my puppy, and he is without a doubt the cutest and sweetest puppy I’ve ever met!  It was the best decision I could have made.
