Puppies stay with us until 10 weeks!! In these extra 2 weeks with us, the puppies learn some very important things from their mama including discipline. They also learn so much with potty training, kennel training, and how to act around other dogs besides their mama. Our goal is for puppies to go home with a very minimal adjustment period and to have potty/kennel training down within the first week!!

We prioritize safe, healthy, and loving environments for your future fur baby. This ensures the pups and the parents are taken care of to the fullest extent. The parents are our family dogs, and the pups have little hands around them from day one.

We always consult with our vet to ensure the parents are healthy and good to continue breeding. Our girls are always either in the house or outside with acres to run around, play with each other, and explore!

All pups come with a strict 12 month Spay/Neuter Contract. AKC Poodles may come with Full Registration(Breeding Rights) to approved In-Home Small Breeding Programs. Contact us and you'll be sent a handful of questions about your program and you'll be approved or denied within 48hrs. If approved, Breeding Rights will be an additional $1,000-$2,000 depending on the puppy.

Disclaimer!! I am NOT a dog groomer. This is just what I do with my dogs!

Poodles and Doodles require a lot of brushing, baths, and professional grooming. Especially if you're keeping their coat longer or they will be getting muddy or wet frequently.

-At Home-

Your pup will need to their first grooming appointment at 4-6 months old, whenever they're full vaccinated. Until they're ready to get groomed, you can make the process easier by brushing out your pup 1-2 times a week. I recommend focusing on their head, ears, face, feet, backside area, and tail. 

Giving them a bath once a week or every other week and blowdrying them after will also help. If you have clippers it's a great idea to remove the blade and run it over their whole body so they get used to the feeling.

Tip: Poodles and Doodles mat the easiest from their feet up to their hips and shoulders, belly, and the chest up to their ears so those areas should be the main focus while brushing them out.

-At The Groomers-

Before you take your pup to the groomers, I recommend giving them a really good bath and brushing them out. It saves your groomer a lot of time and saves you some money.

Depending on your pups coat length, type, and your lifestyle, your pup will have to get professional groomed at least every 8-10 weeks. Consult your groomer on what they think is best for your pup. 

Most grooming visits for a bath, brushing, ears cleaned, and a face, feet, and fanny trim, will be about $30-$50 and a full grooming will be about $50-$75. If your pup has severe matting it can be $75+.

My favorite grooming products are on the "Products" page!

-Breeding & Pregnancy-

Day 1: After breeding has happened, I will let everyone on the waitlist know what the Mama's due date is.

Week 4-6: I will let everyone know whether I believe the Mama is pregnant or not.

-Birth to week 2-

Day 1: I will let everyone know how many puppies were born.

Day 3: I will post "normal" photos and videos of puppies on my Facebook page and a video of me doing ENS & ESI with them.

Day 4-Week 2: I will randomly post photos and videos of them at least 2 times a week.

-Week 2 to 8-

Week 2:  When the puppies are 2 weeks old, I give each person on the waitlist 12 hours to choose their puppy. After the 12 hours is up for each person I will post any remaining puppies looking for their homes.

-Everyone picks out their puppy by photos and videos that I have posted on Instagram & Facebook . I will also take more photos and videos and post them if you would like. 

Weeks 3-7: I post photos, videos, and approximate weight on Instagram & Facebook.

Week 5: I confirm with everyone if they want their puppy trained(Basic Command & Kennel) or not.

I will contact everyone about 1 week before their agreed upon pickup dates, to confirm the location, date, and time. 

When you pick up your puppy you will have to sign all of the documents on the Documents Page.

- I "reserve" their entire week 8-11 weeks for free pick-up(no boarding fees).

Our dog breeding journey started when my parents brought Mabel(Bernese Mountain Dog) home in 2017. It was love at first sight and she can always make you laugh no matter the mood you're in!! After Mabel, they wanted something smaller and lower shedding so, they brought home Silas (F1 Bernedoodle) in 2018 and fell in love with the Poodle & Bernese mix and we decided to start breeding F1b Bernedoodles!

Between 2018 and 2020, we bred my parents Golden Retriever and German Shephard to gain knowledge and experience while waiting for our pups to be old enough. Our first litter after starting Abe's Pups, was born in March of 2020.

 Arlo is 40 pounds at just over 7 months. He is very tall. He is very laid back and such a good dog. He's fun and goofy. His fur is super soft. We get a lot of compliments about how cute he is.

 I got my (not so little) Marvy boy from Abe's Pup's and he is the absolute sweetest. You can tell the family puts so much love into each litter. They treat the mammas amazing, play classical music for the babies, and keep a very clean facility. 12/10 would recommend! 

Sydnie HRose's Spring 2020 Litter

 Abe’s pups are amazing. They are very communicative, organized, and loving of their pups. We just recently bought a mini bernedoodle from them and we could not have asked for a better experience. They made the transition home for our puppy so easy. 5/5 recommend!! 

Katie MLily's Winter 2022 Litter

 We have had such an amazing experience with Abes Pups. We started with one “ Murphy “ and he is so dreamy we had to have another guy “ Mack “. They make our household complete. Our daughter has two of their girls Meeka & Molly. They are all beautiful with personality plus. If you are looking for the perfect family pup here’s where to find them. Hanna is such a pleasure to deal with! We love Abes Pups and you will too! Thanks Abes Pups, we love you and our pups! 

Charlee & BrandyRose Fall 2020 & Summer 2021 Litters

 We got Arlo from here almost 2 years ago now. He is an F1B mini bernedoodle. We had a great experience with Abe's pups. They were great at updating photos and asking us what we wanted in a puppy to help us choose the right one. They have very few litters they so can really spend a lot of time with the puppies and started training for us. Arlo was potty trained within a week due to them starting training. You can tell they truly care about their dogs. They even sent Arlo home with a family photo with his mom and dad. I cannot recommend a better place to get a dog. 

Anne PRose Spring 2020 Litter

 We were looking for a Bernedoodle breed for our first family dog. Abe's Pups was so wonderful to work with and provided us with a wonderful dog. They answered all of our questions, made the process very easy and you can tell they really love their puppies. Rosie is our puppy and she is a wonderful addition to our family!! 

Tiffany SLily Winter 2021 Litter

 Joey girl came into my life almost 4 months ago, and now, I can't imagine life without her. Joey is a goofy, loving, cuddly pup who has brought so much happiness into my boyfriends and I’s lives. Picking her up at 8.5 weeks, Abes Pups had already gotten her accustomed to her name and she was already responding to basic tricks like sit and stay. While the first couple of days with any new puppy aren’t easy, Joey’s calm demeanor and obvious intelligence made our transition almost seamless. Joey was potty trained by the 2nd/3rd week we got her and was a pro at walking on the leash in the big city. Coming from a quiet area in Iowa City, I was worried the loud sounds of Chicago’s city would scare her but she did not seem one bit phased. Joey loves anyone and anything that will give her love and attention and to say she turns all the heads on the street is an understatement. It’s rare that I take her on a walk without being stopped at least 2 times to ask what her breed is and where I got her. Abes Pups made this process so easy and their constant updates throughout her first months made us feel like we knew her before we even got her. I am so thankful I found Abes Pups! Adding Joey to my family was the best decision I have made in a long time.

 Breeding puppies is a labor of love for Hannah. She takes excellent care of her dogs, practices responsible breeding, provides a sensory-rich environment for the pups, & makes sure they are socialized and ready to go to good homes. Hannah is organized and communicates frequently with messages, emails, pictures, & videoclips. She answered all my questions & set me at ease from the get-go. My girl, Quinn, is almost 5 months old now. She's beautiful, friendly, healthy, smart, and a perfect companion! Thank you, Abe's Pups! 😊
