Once your application is approved, you may send a request to join our Facebook group called “Oregon Bordoodles family group.” There, you may post your location and ask if anyone nearby would like a play date! We have dogs all over the US & Canada!
We love to meet our potential puppy families in person whenever possible! Keep in mind that most of our dogs live in Guardian Homes and that only Summit and Yogo may be here for meeting. If you have a specific dog you’d like to meet, let me know so we can arrange it with the Guardian. Please also read our Visiting Oregon Bordoodles page!
Proper medical care is extremely important to us. We don’t use cheap Farm store medications but instead always use Veterinary supplies.
Puppies are dewormed with a gentle, liquid wormer for roundworm several times during their 8 weeks with us. Nearly all puppies are born with roundworm, regardless of proper care for the females before, during and after breeding.
Our puppies are always flea and earmite free. We never use harsh flea shampoos or powders. If a puppy were to contact fleas (during a trip to the vet or from an outside visitor bringing them in by accident) we apply Revolution topically. Our adults are treated year round to always keep a flea free home.
It has been scientifically proven that vaccinating a puppy before 8 weeks is not only unsafe, but is also not helpful. A puppy gets antibodies through mother’s milk and before 8 weeks, those antibodies will actually reject a vaccine. Because of this research, we do not vaccinate a puppy until it is 8 weeks. We vaccinate for canine distemper, adenovirus and parvovirus. Each puppy will go home with a medical form stating when he/she was born, was dewormed and what product was used, and vaccination details. There is also the information on what to do next, making it very easy for you! Exactly what is needed and when, to help start a plan between you and your veterinarian.
We will send your puppy home with Medical records, microchip information etc!
All Bordoodles have varying degrees of herding instinct, but it’s very rare for one to have even half of what a purebred Border Collie does!
While “hypoallergenic” is a sales ploy word that you will never hear us use, a “non shedding dog” is possible. There absolutely are coat types that generally do not aggravate people with allergies and are “non shedding”.
We do DNA testing on all of our breeding dogs to gain more insight about their specific genetic makeup. This allows us to select our pairings carefully and to be able to educate our families on which pairings will be most likely to produce puppies with allergy friendly and “non shedding” coats. Despite basic information, this is simply not a “only get an F1b” answer. Actually, there are multiple generations of Bordoodles that can produce allergy friendly coats including but not limited to F1b, F2/F2b, multigenerational and even some rare F1 pairings. So you are not limited to only one generation if a non shedding, allergy friendly coat is your need.
Yes! See our Board and Train page.
Poodles have a very deep bark designed to alert their families of an intruder. Our puppies tend to carry on this special trait. It is not difficult to train them to only bark when it is appropriate.
It will be double the work but it is possible with a dedicated family. Working with a local trainer, as well as hiring a dog walker and/or doggie daycare will be important. Following our instructions carefully on Crate and Confinement training will be crucial and we strongly encourage you to invest in both Puppy Culture and Baxter & Bella.

We have two Savannah cats that our puppies are very socialized with during their 8 weeks here. As long as it’s continued in a controlled manner by their new family, this positive relationship should continue!
The F1, F2 and other designations refer to the breeding and cross-breeding generations in dogs. See our section on About Bordoodles for the complete breakdown.
