I purchased one of the bernedoodles from Barb’s first (9/2019) liter. We had just started to look for a puppy and decided to look at these adorable pups. Barb was so knowledgeable in this breed but also took such pride and joy in these puppies. We could see the love she had for them and knew they were well taken care of. We looked at the pups on 3 different occasions to get a feel of how this breed behaved and how we connected with them. Barb welcomed us each time, answering all the questions we had. You could see the gentleness and affection she gave all these puppies each time we were there, which was amazing and so reassuring for us. We could not be more happy with our big boy Louie and love him so much!! This breed is exceptionally sweet and gentle. He is such a cuddlier still at 5months. We fell in love with him immediately and am so thankful for Barb’s guidance and patience. My Louie is perfect and our experience was absolutely wonderful, so wonderful that I want another one!

5 months ago we added George to our little family. We had been considering getting a puppy for years, but we couldn't seem to find the right fit for us. I saw the Allen family was expecting a litter of bernedoodle puppies and contacted Barb immediately. From our first communication I knew this would be the perfect match. Barb was amazing to work with, she gave us updates on the pregnancy and when the puppies were born she was as excited as we were. All of the puppies were beautiful, but George (aka Harry/aka blue puppy) stole our hearts. George was the missing piece of our family's puzzle... we love him so much and are very grateful to Barb and the OCB Boys Bernie Breeders for raising the most loving and cuddly fuzzball we could dream of...

I was immediately smitten with the chunky puppy in the red collar I saw online. He seemed like the perfect mix of sweet and mischievous. We had decided no more puppies a couple years ago, but that one with the red collar stole our hearts, and a few weeks later, Odin “Odie” Chance joined our family.
He loves peanut butter and playing in the snow. His heart breaks on walks when kids don’t cross the street to say “Hi” and he’s most excited when his boys come home from school. He likes to nibble on our toes as he walks by and won’t pass up a car ride, even if it’s only from the driveway into the garage. He may occasionally steal food from the counter. He is the perfect mix of sweet and mischievous.
Thank you OCB for your help and patience during our decision making process! Adopting from you was easy knowing these puppies come from people who love and care for each puppy. You are clearly more than a breeder. We love our Bernedoodle!

We adopted our little Bernese from Barb and the OCB Boys BB and we couldn’t be more delighted and grateful for our experience. From Barb sharing how mama was doing, to updates after the puppies were born and their growth week by week. Upon meeting the puppies we were greeted with lots of love and puppy kisses right away. The area the puppies are kept is clean, and homey and not overcrowded with multiple litters. These puppies are so taken care of and spoiled from the beginning. Barb truly puts in so much love and effort into caring for her animals and we look forward to adopting another puppy from this family in the future.

We purchased a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy from OCB Boys Bernie Breeders in the spring of 2020 and our entire experience with Barb was fantastic. From answering our very first questions, to updating us frequently with pictures of our puppy, to finally sending us home with our sweet boy Lou, Barb was there for us every step of the way and made the entire process incredibly easy and exciting. With this being our first Bernese Mountain Dog, we had plenty of questions and Barb was wonderful in giving us all of the advice we could ask for. It's been an absolute joy to watch our boy Lou grow up and as advertised, he's the perfect companion.
Thank you for making this process so wonderful!

It was spring 2020 when we first reached out to OCB Boys wanting to add a fur baby to our family! Being first time dog owners we had tons of questions from day 1 and Barb did a great job replying and answering each one. She was great at staying in contact during the waiting period, before we could bring our puppy home. She answered questions promptly and updated us along the way, with pictures which helped create a connection before having our puppy! My kids and I drove down twice to the farm, once to meet our pup, and then again to bring him home a few weeks later and both times were a great experience! When we took Reggie home with us, she sent us with a cute photo book of weekly pictures of Reggie growing- which is a beautiful keep sake to have.
Now after having him for a few months we love staying in touch with updates and Barb still answers some of my questions along the way! Reggie has been everything we could imagine and helped complete our family. We are so grateful for OCB boys and will make sure to reach out again if we decide to add any more fur babies in the future!
Hey OCB Family,
It’s been about 1 week since we brought our little Zeke (Cortland) home. He’s still getting adjusted but already has his favorite spot on the bed! His big brother is finally coming around and is so patient when Zeke tries to nibble on his tail or toes. We often find them snuggling next to each other after play time. Our daughter is still so excited to have a new furry friend. She calls them both “her boys” which melts our hearts. Our family is still so over the moon about Zeke and we cannot wait to watch him grow! We just wanted to say thank you to your family for being so amazing during this whole process. Barb kept in touch with us and provided sweet pictures during the time she had with Zeke. That really meant a lot to us and we knew that he was in great, loving hands. We could not be happier with our little snuggle bug! It was amazing meeting you, we hopefully will continue to update you on how Zeke is doing!
Thank you so much,
We reached out to Barb in December of 2019 in hopes of adding a four-legged pup to our family! We had lots of questions and Barb was more than happy and patient with us when asking. We kept in contact in hopes one of her pups was pregnant. Unfortunately, the momma didn’t get pregnant in early 2020. Fast forward a few months, and we got a call from Barb saying she was hoping to have puppies in August! We immediately went onto the list and waited anxiously. Barb continuously updated us along the way and a few short weeks later, she had puppies! Before we were able to pick out our puppy, Barb sent pictures and videos through the weeks leading up to it. We not only got pictures but we were so fortunate that, it worked in Barb’s schedule, to go out weekly to visit our pup. We believe it helped build a connection to Bella sooner and we enjoyed watching her grow each week. When the time came to pick up our Bella, Barb was amazing. She had a bag of food, a toy, a picture book, vet information, and a gift for us. To say Barb was attentive and caring is an understatement!!! We can’t say thank you enough to her for helping us add our best addition to our family. 2020 might not have gone as we planned, but Bella was planned for us!

Our journey with Barb and her incredible family started in late 2019. We had talked that summer about possibly raising a Bernese male, that Barb would be using as a stud to breed with her two beautiful females. It started as an complete “maybe” and ended up being the best decision my family and I have ever made. I can remember the night Barb called me like it was yesterday, she simply said “I have a puppy who is ready for a home, and I want you guys to have him”. We drove to her house that night and picked up our not so little guy we now call Bentley. At home waiting was our 10 year old Bernese Mountain Dog, Benson; who was not too sure about a new puppy coming into the house. After about a day the two of them were inseparable. We ended up losing Benson, due to old age in March, and our family was devasted. It was heartbreaking to see the mourning in not only my husband and kids, but in Bentley as well. Though the loss was painful, we were hopeful God had a plan for us, and so he did. Bentley first bred with Lila in February of 2020, and the puppies were born in March. Of course, we fell in love at first sight. As we formed a close relationship with Barb and her family, we were able to experience the incredible amount of passion and love this family dedicates to these dogs. Just a month after losing Benson our family knew we were missing something. The thought of another puppy in our house sounded hectic, but one just wasn’t enough for us. Barb was there every step of the way, and made our big decision quite an easy “yes”. We brought Hudson home on May 2nd and our family instantly felt as if the hole in our hearts was filled. Bentley immediately sensed that Hudson was his son and the bond between them became unbreakable. To finally see Bentley back to his normal self was so heartwarming. He still to this day continues to clean, monitor every step Hudson takes, and sleep next to his side each night. The two of them have a connection that I didn’t even know was possible between animals. Our experience with OCB Boys Bernie Breeders was like no other. The minute we saw Barb interact with the puppies was when we knew we had chose the right path. The way she cares for each puppy individually, and loves them as if her life depends on it shows so much. Those puppies are spoiled to death and loved every second they spend with Barb and her family. Our home is now filled with a never ending amount of joy, love, happiness and a dreadful amount of dog hair, but we owe it all to the Barb.

I brought Kevin home in October. He’s a Bernedoodle. He’s such a great dog. I then decided to bring home another puppy, Betty Lou, also a Bernedoodle, the end of December. Barb was great keeping us updated on their progress and lots of pictures. I took Betty Lou to her first vet visit yesterday and she said she was very impressed with the breeder, Barb from OCB Boys Bernie Breeder. The vet, said she sees a lot of Bernedoodle’s , but Kevin and Betty Lou were the best that she has seen. Healthy, great personalities, and they look like Bernese mountain dogs. I would highly recommend Barb for anyone looking for a new best friend.
