Welcome to Mile High Bordoodles located on forty beautiful acres in Northern Colorado's beautiful Rocky Mountains. We are a small hobby breeder of Bordoodle's which are a mix of Border Collie and Standard Poodle.
We will be offering one line of Bordoodle puppies. Our F2b next generation Bordoodles are sixty percent Standard Poodle and forty percent Border Collie, they will be bred from Charley and Sammy, Charley and Stevie, and Charley and Holly. All puppies come from AKC Poodle's and Border Collie lines with good to excellent OFA certifications as well as health histories and testing. Mile High Bordoodles offers a two year health guarantee on all puppies based on a feeding and vaccination schedule we recommend, which is a holistic grain free diet and only necessary vaccinations. All puppies come wormed, have their first vaccinations, and come with a toy and blanket smelling of their litter. Puppies will go home at eight weeks old. Shipping is an additional $425.00 - $550.00 if required and based on current airline pricing.
Mile High Bordoodles was created based on my previous breeding of Mile High Bullmastiffs which I bred for many years, and enjoyed tremendously. I grew up with Poodles and love a non shedding pet, most Bordoodles are non shedding, but wanted to offer an awesome family oriented non shedding pet without a tight curly coat. I love breeding, it is a passion of mine that I do for the joy of doing so, as well as offering the healthiest babies to my pet families with a lifetime of support.
All our dogs are our pets and live in our home with me and my son. All our breeders are our dogs that we raised with love, care, and the comfort of a connection with us when giving birth. I am with our girls the whole time during delivery and then I let Dam and puppies bond and limit my interference with them. My job is to take care of mom, and she takes care of the puppies. So while I am there always and always making sure everything is going as it should, I respect her wishes by letting her have the time with her babies as she sees fit. All my girls are bonded to me tremendously, so I can do whatever I see fit with her and puppies, but even so the Dam is still very concerned when you take a puppy away or hold her puppies. She will get up to see what your doing or watch diligently while you hold them. This is their natural instinct that lasts at least two weeks and more commonly three weeks. I respect how she feels and want to make her time as comfortable as possible, so while I do have to handle and take pups here or there, I do so with mom outside for a potty break and keep the interactions short. Every puppy is touched, checked, loved, kissed and cuddled still, (because how can you resist a darling little puppy) but just with mom in mind. There aren't any theories on what happens to a Dam and puppy with certain actions, but I just feel that if mom is in any way stressed or nervous she can potentially transfer these feeling to her puppies via energy or via milk, so why take those chances? Plus when she pulls away she is usually pulling away from puppies she is currently nursing.
We have four dogs and that is all. This is for the joy of the breed and being around our breeders and their babies, this is not about how many puppies we can have. We do not agree with having such a large quantities of breeders that you have to place them outside of your home or facility. Such an integral part of who the Dam and Sire is comes into play when having puppies. I know my breeders like the back of my hand, can predict their mood, if they don't like something or when they are uncomfortable. This, along with, loving having puppies are the main reasons for me to breed at all. I no longer wanted to get puppies from breeders that really just looked at this like a business. So I felt the best way to accomplish this was to breed on my own, after getting my first Bullmastiff from an outdoor kennel breeder, and she was sick her whole life. I never bred my Chassy, but I did find good breeders to get my next three Bullmastiff breeders from so I could offer loved and healthy puppies from my pets. All puppies and our dogs are loved, played with and come to you well socialized, happy and healthy. This interaction goes a long way and is noticed by our new Bordoodle puppy families, our pups have such big hearts, and we have such big hearts for them...
All basic beginning recognition of the outside world is started with our babies. I don't create loud noises just to watch them jump. I do everyday activities with them and they learn to understand and get used to these things without being momentarily terrorized. There are many breeders that will undergo initiation into these newly introduced training techniques but I don't agree with them. The Volhard test while a useful tool for getting a basic idea of a pups potential intelligence is not a good indicator of personality and intelligence combined. One of the reasons I am a breeder is because I am very in tune with dogs, I always have been, I can read their personality and intelligence very quickly upon meeting them. With this I am able to watch our babies grow and see where they will likely be as a full grown adult. I have been very successful based on puppy family feed back and them being exactly as I predicted. This is a gift that I adore and one I love being able to share with our amazing pups, dogs, and new Mile High Bordoodle families.
Mile High F2b Bordoodle pups are raised with constant love, attention and interaction. It is our belief that the best pets are raised from the start with love and attention by their breeder, as well as the family which includes our kids, making the best puppies for kids that we can. Our Dam's are allowed to see the babies the entire time they are here in order to make her separation from her litter the easiest and most natural transition for Dam and puppies.
All Mile High Bordoodle puppies learn the misty method. So they come home to you with a great start to potty training already in place, making for an easy transition to going outside when they go home. They have been bathed several times by the time they go home, have had glands expressed, ears wiped out, and have had their nails clipped, this is with each bath. They learn towel drying is the best part of the bath and get lots of love, joy and excitement at doing a good job. Teaching them that there is a reward with an experience they may not like or may be scared of. Most of our Bordoodle puppies love the water!
We honestly couldn't love them any more than we do and feel honored to be the ones to start your new puppy off the right way...
