About Us

Cowlitz Valley Bernedoodles is owned and operated by Dave and Marilyn Garcia.

We started our life in Washington on a farm just outside the little town of Morton in the beautiful Cowlitz Valley. After living there for seventeen years, we decided that life had another adventure waiting for us. We listed our farm and off we moved to Eastern Washington to the beautiful town of Colville, which is about an hour's drive north of Spokane.

Our farm is just 8 miles outside of Colville on 160 acres of paradise. We absolutely love the drier climate of Eastern Washington and our property which is home to wild turkeys and deer. Our Bernedoodles are keen on the adventure of exploring our property and absolutely love the daily runs down our many trails.

Our bernedoodle puppies are handled daily by us, with extra attention from our grandchildren and our neighbors who love having puppies living next door.  When our puppies are 3 weeks old, they move out of their baby pens and start the transition to solid food and being litter box trained.  We litter box train the bernedoodle puppies to (hopefully) make it easier for their families to house-train them when they take them home. When the puppies are about 5 weeks old, we start to take them outside daily to experience the “big world” (weather permitting) and get the fresh air, adventure, and exercise they need and love. It’s always a special time for us to watch them play with each other, and their moms and to be introduced to their dad, Zermatt (he loves playing with the babies).  Before we know it the puppies are 8 weeks old and ready for their new loving forever homes.
