Why don't you have a standard waiting list?
After 10 years of managing a waiting list we have decided to venture out and do it differently. We feel it is better for the family adopting, and for us! With this process you are not putting several deposits in with numerous breeders in hopes of getting a puppy of you dreams. And possibly waiting years for that opportunity. And we are able to spend all those hours with our puppies and dogs instead of managing the waiting list.
-We do NOT take a deposit.
-We do NOT have a waiting list.
When you and your family are ready for your puppy you can start following our breeding plans and updates. Then follow the steps listed to the right.
NO one will get to adopt a puppy without an approved application!
Is this process stressful?
It can feel stressful on adoption morning. I would recommend having 1-3 puppies picked out for your family. If you are not very techy it would be nice to find someone to help you with the checkout part, it's not hard but if you are not used to checking out online it could be overwhelming. We have been doing a waiting list for a decade now and it to is stressful on selection day! The good news is that Bernedoodles in general have a very even temperament so much of the choosing is based off of your color and coat preference.
While all adoptions can feel a bit overwhelming or stressful it is also a very exciting time! And in all the years of doing this I have never had anyone say I wish I would have chosen a different puppy! It always seems to work out as it should! So have fun with it and don't stress!
What are your upcoming litter plans and do you have confirmed litters?
Here's how the 406 adoption process works!
How does it work if I am already on your waiting list?
We are happy to refund your deposit money if you choose or from now till June of 2021 families that are on our waiting list already will get a 1 hour head start on adoption day. After June of 2021 all deposits not used will be refunded. If you have a $250 deposit with 406 we will either credit it towards go home expenses or refund it after your purchase or at pick up.
If you are on our waiting list now please know that you are already approved. You will just need to let me know when we have a litter that you are wanting the adoption page password for. If you do not want to be apart of our new process please let me know and we will send a refund check to you.
Please note that our prices will go up with this new process.
All of you that are on our "past" waitlist will have an opportunity the night before future adoption day to choose your puppy within 1 hour. Times and date to be determined as litters are born. Please reach out if you have any questions about this process. Thank you!
How much are your puppies?
Prices will be set per puppy before adoption opens for that litter. Prices will be based on color, coat and temperament.

Tri's & Merles $7,000-$8,000
Black and Tans/Phantoms $5,000-$6,000
Standard F1 Bernedoodles
Tri's & Merles $6,000-$7,000
What are my payment options:
Square Business excepts Visa, MasterCard, Amex, & Discover in debt or credit. The credit card fee is payed by us.
*Before you purchase we recommend notifying your credit card company or bank in case they flag it as a fraudulent purchase. Let your bank or credit card company know you will be making this purchase from 406 Acres LLC. This will eliminate any stress upon adoption day!
At what age do the puppies go up for adoption?
Between 5 and 6 weeks old. At this age we have a good sense of coat, personalities, size & confirmation. Once a litter is born the adoption day and go home date will be listed.
Do you book the fly nanny if that is how we want our puppy to go home?
No we let you take care of that, this way there is less chance of a miscommunication and you are able to book whom you feel most comfortable with. We do have a recommended fly nanny that we have worked with listed on our "preparation" page. Once you book your fly nanny you just need to stay in touch with us on the go home and if a health certificate is needed.
When can I get my puppy?
At 8 weeks old
How can I tell if I am allergic to a Bernedoodle?
First of all I want to clear up a common misunderstanding, there is NO such thing as a “HYPOALLERGENIC” dog. If you have allergies please get educated and spend time visiting various breeds to see how you react to them. If you live near us we are happy to set up a time for you to meet a Bernedoodle and see how you react to it. If you are allergic to a dog licking you, you will most likely be allergic to all dogs even non-shedding ones. Bernedoodles are known to be very allergy friendly.
Do you have a health guarantee, or a puppy contract?
Yes- it is under the 406 BD puppies button.
What airport are you near if I want to fly in to get my puppy?
Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, BZN is the code. We are located 15 minutes west of Bozeman and 20 minutes from the airport.
How much food do they eat?
It is best to look at the dog food feeding guidelines to get an accurate idea of this. Each food is a little different. I would roughly say a full grown Bernedoodle will eat between 3 and 4 cups a day. A mini will eat more like 1.5-2 cups a day.
Do you do refunds?
No we do not do refunds, payments made will go as a credit with 406 if you decide to pass on a puppy you have adopted.
Feeding & nutritional recommendations will all be posted under the "406 preparation". Password will be given to you once a deposit is received.
