I'm Chelsea Henkel, proud owner of Tanner Ridge Bernedoodles, and this is the Henkel family, my husband, Adam, Judah, Luke and Koen, our three active boys who are full of energy!
Sadie, our beautiful Mini Bernedoodle is our dream dog and the most amazing addition to our family. She has all the qualities I wanted in a dog and brought a whole new level of love and joy into our family, filling a hole we didn't even know was there. Currently, we live on a half acre property in Tanner Ridge, a beautiful community in Victoria B.C. Canada.
Since I was a little girl, I have been a dog lover with a passion to become a breeder. My mom bred Maltese poodles and Havanese my entire childhood, and I was enamoured with all the stages of puppyhood: from breeding, to birth, to the wild and crazy first 8 weeks. I loved having adorable puppies fill my life with joy and then seeing them find their forever homes. I always knew it was only a matter of time before I became a breeder myself and I wanted my kids to experience the same magic I did when I was a child. I have always been in love with Bernese Mountain Dogs, but when I found out their lifespan was only 6-8 years, I knew I couldn't deal with that kind of heartbreak so soon. Finding the Bernedoodle was a dream come true. Where else can you get tri-coloured markings, a 12-15 year lifespan, non-shedding, hypoallergenic, and family friendly laid back dog??? I knew I had found my match! When we met our dog, Sadie, we knew we had the breed that we wanted to share with the world!
We want to ensure that you are Happy!
Making a decision on a puppy is a BIG deal!!
What is most important to us is that you get a dog that suits your family with the temperament that is best for your lifestyle! We breed for quality, health and temperament and are committed to delivering on these areas. We have a 2 year health guarantee to ensure you are getting a healthy puppy! Because we don't have multiple dogs in our breeding program, we are able to spend sufficient time giving your puppy the love, care and attention it deserves.
At Tanner Ridge Bernedoodles, we pay close attention to genetic testing and satisfy the requirements of healthy breeding practices. You may book an appointment to stop by our house. We want to ensure this decision is a comfortable one for you. We are strongly committed to ethical practices of breeding. Being a breeder you can stand behind and trust is very important to us.
