About Us

Welcome to Michiana Kennels Bernedoodles site. If you’re looking for the perfect companion dog—a dog with beauty, brains and personality—you’ve come to the right place. Bernedoodles are a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle. They offer some of the best traits of each breed in an adorable, allergy-friendly package.

We’ve worked steadily to develop a breeding program that focuses on good health, a calm temperament, great conformation and gorgeous coloring.

I can say with confidence that all Michiana Bernedoodles are carefully and precisely  bred, well-socialized, fun-loving family dogs.

Each and every Michiana Bernedoodle is unique in its own way. As hybrids, they vary in size, color and coat type, and personality. Your Michiana Bernedoodle will truly be one-of-a-kind!

I believe that the success of  Michiana Kennels is based on three key factors:

  • An innovative and highly precise breeding program.
  • Engaged, caring, & respectful clients, who give loving homes to our dogs, offer creative ideas, and support us and other pet owners.
  • Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

Our puppies come with a 1 yr. genetic health guarantee. Medium, Standard and Miniature sizes. We are a small family based breeder with over 30 yrs. of experience and dedication, we have raised champions and have been blessed with the opportunity of winning a World Championship.  Where quality Matters; We are located in Northern Indiana.

Life Span....  By crossing the Bernese with the Poodle, it creates a  healthier, happier dog with the desired hybrid vigor that greatly decreases the chances of them inheriting any "breed related" health issues.

However we have been breeding purebred Bernese mountain dogs for many years. We take it very seriously when it comes to health and longevity of life.  We breed for longevity of life, Healthy hips and elbows. We have been very fortunate when it comes to hips and elbobows. Our dogs have also been cancer free. We have not experienced any of those issues with-in our line of dogs as of yet.

Average life span for a Bernese Mountain dog is 7 to 9 years of age. However approx 80% of our dogs and ancestors are enjoying life spans from 10 to 13 years of age.

​The average lifespan expectancy of a Bernedoodle is 12-15 yrs.​​
