Welcome to NorthEast Kingdom Doodles !

We are happy to say that Echo had a beautiful litter of Bernedoodles! We also have limited pups available. Check out our current litter page for puppy profiles!

Who are we at NEK Doodles?

Ours is a family endeavor and our dogs are part of our family! Our mission is to provide high quality companion animals, attending to excellence in both nature and nurture. Our breeding dogs are the highest quality, chosen for their health, genetic excellence and temperaments. They are also our own pets, with the training, attention, and socialization only possible from a small breeder like ourselves. 

Some of our pups have gone on to be service animals. All of our pups have been great additions to their adoptive families.

Another benefit of our process is that adoptive pup-parents get access to our 24/7 Webcam from the time their deposit is received on a particular litter. The cameras provide transparency about our puppy care, along with continuous opportunities to bond and to see how your pup and littermates grow and interact. This way you get to preview the puppies’ personalities and have clarity about your preferences by puppy pick day. Another hallmark of our care is our attention to the early nurture and conditioning of your puppy. We implement consistency in positive behavioral conditioning in all of our interactions with each pup. This experience prepares them for learning well at their future homes. Each pup also undergoes early neurologocal stimulation exercises that foster resilience and guard against anxiousness.  

We are located in Vermont and upstate New York. Adoptive families usually like to visit us and pick up the puppy in person.

Why Doodles?

Bernedoodles combine the energy, joyful exhuberance and cuddliness of a Bernese Mountain Dog, plus the intelligence, focus and reduced shedding that come from a poodle. Their markings are also a trait that sometimes set them apart from other doodles. Our F1 (first generation) Bernedoodles are from are usually black and white or tricolored with wavy coats. They usually have a facial blaize, white tail tips and white paws or underbellies. These beautiful, fluffy dogs are low shedding or hypoallergenic thanks to their poodle dads. Our BD pups weigh anywhere from 40 to 90 pounds full grown, depending on the parents.

Our Aussiedoodles have all the charm of Bernedoodles, but in a smaller package and for a more affordable price. We have chosen our Australian Shepherd Moms in part for their medium energy temperament, which is why these doodle puppies are about the same in personality as a mini-bernedoodle. It’s not even so much that Aussiedoodles are more energetic than Bernedoodles, they are more quickly intelligent. So they often enjoy puzzle toys or things that engage their mind. Our Aussiedoodles weigh about 30 to 40 pounds full grown. In our opinion, they’re an ideally huggable size with a sturdy body and all the low-shedding benefits of an F1 doodle. Our AD pups are usually Merle or Black&White.

We had such an amazing experience working with Northeast Kingdom Doodles. Having access to the live feed allowed us to see how well our aussiedoodle Olive was doing with her siblings. They provided frequent updates and videos and made it very easy to ask questions. It’s obvious how well cared for Olive was for her first 8 weeks as she is incredibly smart and calm. We were worried that she was going to have a hard time with all the noise in Brooklyn but she hardly bats an eye when the fire trucks drive by or when the doorbell rings. She loves attention has been so patient with everyone who wants to pet her, which is everyone because she is just that adorable. We were even surprised by how quickly she has settled into her crate. When it’s time to get Olive a sibling we are sure to return to NEK Doodles.
