Texas Bernedoodles Health Testing

As long time Australian Labradoodles and Bernedoodles Breeders and members of the ALAA (The Australian Labradoodle Association of America). We follow the same required health testing that ALAA guidelines required for Australian Labradoodles for our Bernedoodles.  The ALAA has taught us so much over the years about what’s important in a breeding program to breed healthy Bernedoodle puppies with great temperaments. We are grateful to bring this valuable education into our Bernedoodle breeding program.

Our Texas Bernedoodles breeding dogs must have a minimum of a passing hip test score and elbow score. In addition to hips and elbow testing, our dogs are also tested for Degenerative Myelopathy, Exercise-Induced Collapse, Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis, Neonatal Encephalopathy with Seizures, Progressive Retinol Atrophy, Cone-Rod Dystrophy 4, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration, Von Willebrand Disease I, Improper Coat and have eye exams yearly.

Clearing our dogs for potential diseases not only ensures that our dogs do not have these issues prior to breeding, it also ensures that we will never produce puppies that could have these diseases. Hip and elbow testing does not guarantee that puppies will never have hip dysplasia, but it is the best method that we have to prevent producing puppies with genetic hip issues. Hip problems are often caused be environmental factors, but culling puppies for breeding purposes helps to reduce the risk of breeding bad confirmation.

Temperament, coat and trainability for different types of disciplines are key in our breeding program. Our goal is to breed perfect family members, service dogs, guide dogs, therapy dogs and best friends and that begins with breeding the perfect parents. Years of care and experience have made us experts as Texas Bernedoodle breeders. We know how to accomplish high standards that we have learned by being diligent with  ALAA standards that we have followed for almost two decades and our own personal goals for our Bernedoodle puppies.

We know that a Texas Bernedoodles bred dog is the finest of our wonderful breed and we are so proud to have produced such wonderful companions and working dogs. Please see our references page for more stories and letters from our families.
