  • We now have referred Robin to 3 of our friends

    We cannot thank Robin & Trina enough for all their help throughout this process & for giving us our baby girl, Berkeley!

    We now have referred Robin to 3 of our friends who all already picked their pup from their litters! Needless to say, we’re very happy with their service and beautiful pups.

    The best part is, they still text us every so often to check in on her 5 months later! 🙂 THANK YOU

  • We cannot say enough great things

    We cannot say enough great things about Fawn River! Our puppy from there came healthy and happy. He is the most well behaved and loving dog, and was up to date on all his medicals when we received him.

    Robin was also so great to work with, being really responsive, flexible on meeting time with us to come pick up our pup, and answering all our questions.

    Even after we took Walter home, Robin continues to check in and answer any questions we have as they come up. I can’t recommend Fawn River enough!

  • So confident and loves everyone she meets

    We are in love with our newest family member ! We picked up Posey who was formerly known as Azalea 5/7/24. We toured the facility and spent sometime meeting our new pup. Robin was kind and so helpful and made the purchase from out of state so easy! She is our second bernedoodle but our first from Fawn River.

    We can’t thank you enough Posey is so confident and loves everyone she meets and we know it’s because of the great start she had from you and your family a world of difference from our other bernedoodle who was scared and very nervous . Posey is so smart and picked up the bell method to go potty outside with in the first few days.

    If you are looking for a bernedoodle we would highly recommend Fawn River Doodles!

  • How do I help my puppy adjust to its new home?

    The first few days of bringing a new puppy home can be overwhelming. These are some tips for you so you can have a smooth transition.

    Choose a potty spot

    You should start by taking your puppy to an outside spot where you want him to go potty. Be sure to use a command like “go potty” so the puppy can learn. 

    Introduce your home one room at a time

    Introduce your house to your puppy one room at a time. This will prevent a sensory overload and allows the puppy to get used to its new surroundings slowly.

    Introduce family members individually

    Try to let your puppy meet each family member individually.

    Introduce its sleeping space

    Show your puppy their sleeping space, which could either be a crate or a dog bed.

    Give chew toys

    Puppies like to chew so be sure to provide safe puppy chew toys.

    Keep a close eye on your new family member

    It’s important for your puppy to stay supervised within the early days.

    Start training immediately

    It’s critical that your puppy learns rules from the beginning. This is becaused the more structured and consistent its day is, the better adjusted it will be. Don’t yell or punish the puppy as this will only frighten and confuse it.

    Take things slow

    Under your supervision, gradually expand the puppy’s environment. With lots of affection, consistent rules and routine, rewards for good behavior, and gentle corrections, your puppy will adjust in no time.

  • What is the BAB program?

    BAB (Badass Breeder) is a program created by Jeanette Forrey to help breeders empower their puppies and give them a voice in what they need. It also makes a big difference in finding the right families for each puppy and the right puppy for each family.

    Here’s what Jeanette has to say on why she created her program:

    Puppies are raised to believe in themselves and be the best they can be through guiding emotional responses, meeting their innate needs in order, building confidence through intentional and purposeful curriculum and handling that aligns to their sensitive developmental benchmarks, and lastly, evaluating each puppy prior to placement to ensure their voice is heard and they are honored and respected not only with their breeder but with their new human as well.

    Jeanette, founder of Badass Breeders

    Here’s summary of a list of benefits for puppies raised on the BAB program.

    Better Stress Handling

    When the puppies are a few days old we start with Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS). This improves their stress responses later in life. 

    Improved Confidence

    Early Scent Introduction (ESI) is also started at a few days old. It is a procedure to help with nose awareness and confidence. 

    Puppy/Family Temperament Matching

    At 7-8 weeks we do temperament testing. This is a test that helps us place a puppy with the right family, and helps you pick a puppy that will thrive in your home. 

  • Why do I want a puppy raised on the BAB program?

    This is something we have been working on over the last couple years. It’s not something that happened overnight because it takes a lot of time.

    We love our puppies and parents, and we always try to do our very best in raising and training our puppies. The BAB program has helped us so much because it’s a proven, structured approach to raising confident puppies. It has made such a difference in our puppies and how they transition into their new homes.

    Better stress handling

    We start when they are a few days old with Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS). This improves their stress responses later in life. We do this is by applying gentle stressors like gently pulling on their tail, rubbing between their toes, gently rubbing a hand over their eyes and face, turning them upside down. We do this all with great care and with much love.

    Improved confidence

    We also do Early Scent Introduction (ESI). It is a procedure to help with nose awareness and confidence. It enhances their ability to identify and react to scents. Similar to ENS this is introduced at days 3-16 of a puppies life and is very beneficial to their development.

    We introduce the puppies to many new things each week starting at week 4. New toys in the whelping box and exposure to many sounds. When they are older they go outside to the play area to experience even more.

    Puppy/family temperament matching

    At 7-8 weeks we do temperament testing, this is a test that helps us place a puppy with the right family and helps you pick a puppy that will thrive in your home. This way everyone gets a voice in the placement process.

    All of this takes a lot of time and energy, but the benefits have been so amazing since we have started that it just makes sense to keep doing it all– better placements, fewer problems, and fewer puppies that need to be re-homed.
