The first initial step in acquiring a Bordoodle puppy is to complete our Puppy Adoption Application. We ask that you provide detailed answers whenever possible.
After you complete your application you'll be able to place a $500 deposit. Your deposit will secure your ability to reserve any available puppy, or you can choose to have your name placed on a particular litter or future litter. Only those people who have placed a deposit have the opportunity to reserve a puppy. See our Available Puppies
Application and Deposit
Puppies are only available to approved depositors. Start by filling out a Puppy Adoption Application. Once you are approved and have placed a deposit, you can adopt any available puppy or you may request that your name be added to the upcoming litter of your choice. Pick positions on any upcoming litter are determined on a "first come, first serve" basis according to the time and date of the request (for approved depositors only).
Puppy Pick Day
Our committed depositors will choose their puppies once they reach 6 weeks and 1 day of age. We ask that the first person picking their pup give us their choice by 10:00 am (Mountain Time Zone), then we'll proceed to the #2 depositor and so on. Usually most of our depositors are ready to give us their choice right away, so the process is usually done within a few hours. We require that all picks be confirmed by email so that there is no confusion. So, once it's your turn to pick, please email us your puppy pick and we will immediately post your choice on the litter page (REAL TIME - Immediately).
After everyone chooses their pup, we will email you an invoice to pay the balance on your pup, including shipping and training if applicable. You can pay by credit card (we add 3% to cover processing fees charged by our on-line merchant - Bank of Utah, PayPal or Square) or you can send us a check by mail. Either way is just fine with us. When sending a check, please mail the check right away so that we can receive your check prior to shipping or training if applicable.
Puppies Go Home @ 8 Weeks
Our sweet little puppies are ready to go home at 8 weeks of age. Please keep in mind that we are not able to let our puppies go home sooner than 8 weeks of age. It is important that all puppies have the opportunity to spend the first 8 weeks of their life with their mom and siblings and that they have a chance to be properly weaned between 7-8 weeks of age. **** If you have enrolled your puppy in our training program, your pup will go home at 11 weeks of age, or 13 weeks depending upon which training course/s you choose.
Shipping Your Pup
We handle all shipping details. We will arrange shipping according to your preference. If traveling by air, we prefer Delta airlines when shipping within the US. If shipping to Canada, Mexico or overseas, we will discuss with you airline options and our further requirements for puppy travel. We prefer Delta as their Pet handling procedures are of the highest standards. We seek after a direct flight if possible. We'll discuss this with you. We typically ship our pups out on the first Friday or Saturday after your puppy turns 8 weeks old. The cost is a flat $350. This fee includes air fare, crate, Vet's Certificate of Health and transport to the airport.

A Bordoodle, also known as Borderdoodle, Border Doodle and Border Collie Poodle, is a hybrid cross between a Border Collie and Poodle, the two smartest dogs in the world! As a Bordoodle breeder, we're so proud to breed and raise the smartest and most athletic of all "doodle" breeds.
Because of their tender hearts, forgiving nature and keen mind, Bordoodles are the easiest to train and make exceptional family dogs as well. Bordoodles are also the latest and greatest discovery in high quality service dogs, especially well suited for Mobility Assistance, PTSD, Diabetic Alert, Seizure Response and Seizure Alert service dogs.
We invite you to learn more about the Bordoodle breed by browsing our site. We have lots of information, photos and videos too.
There’s a bit of confusion going on in the doodle world about the name of the Border Collie and Poodle cross. One of the most frequent questions we receive is, “Why do some people call these dogs Border Doodles and others call them Bordoodles"? Well, there is a really good reason.
When the breed first became popular, most organizations that recognize this breed such as Continental Kennel Club, Designer Breed Registry, Dog Registry of America, and others named this dog the “Borderdoodle” and people came to know the breed as the Borderdoodle or Border Doodle. This seemed to make the most sense because it was crossed with the Border Collie and the Poodle. This is why, in the beginning, our original "kennel" name was Mountain Rose Borderdoodles (eventually converting our official kennel name to Mountain Rose Bordoodles).
Over the years, several of the breed organizations shortened the name to Bordoodle. This led to the rest of the registries eventually changing their registry name from Borderdoodles to Bordoodles. So, today the technical "Official" name for this breed is Bordoodle. Because Mountain Rose was there in the very beginning, we were lucky to acquire and own both Internet URL (domain names) names www.borderdoodles.com as well as www.bordoodles.com.
Which one is It?
Because Bordoodles are smart, tolerant, loyal and super affectionate, they make wonderful family dogs and personal companions. They love to play games, go on hikes and be part of the family. Bordoodles love kids and get along well with other animals. They don't usually bark, except to warn of a stranger on your property. Bordoodles are usually hypoallergenic and are low to non-shedding. They also excel in agility sports and are super desirable as service dogs due to their high I.Q. and astonishing reasoning ability, which makes them super easy to train. Your Bordoodle puppy can be easily trained to proficiently obey all basic obedience commands by just 12 weeks of age! Mountain Rose can help you accomplish this.
