Has anyone on here purchased a Bernedoodle puppy from Central Illinois Doodles? I've spoken with him a few times seems to be very knowledgeable and professional. Please click the link to be taken to his website, he has a lot of info on his website about why people should choose him over other breeders? Any infomation you may have on this breeder would be helpful!

I'm not seeing a whole lot of anything particulary informative.

What do they do with their dogs besides breeding them? Why do they pick those particular dogs to breed together (other than to produce puppies to sell)?

They seem to have a lot of litters, so knowing how often and how many times their bitches are bred is important. Being pregnant, whelping, and nursing a litter is hard work. Being bred every single heat cycle doesn't give a bitch any recovery time.

None of the purebred dogs on their website look to be of good breed type.

What health testing do they do? Goldens, Berners and Poodles all have some pretty serious health issues. The breeder should be able to show you OFA results (or PennHIP results, if they do that for hips) for all their breeding dogs. That means hips, elbows, and eyes, as well as SA results for the Poodles, and cardio testing on the Goldens and Berners.

The Continental Kennel Clue was formed for the pet store industry, in part to get around some of the AKC's policies restricting registration.
