Originally located near the San Juan Mountains of Western Colorado, Timber Ridge Bernedoodles is owned and operated by Chelsey Harrington and her boyfriend, Joseph Bucciarelli.
Chelsey is one of the only bernedoodle breeders in the Unites States that is a true, Certified Veterinary Technician. A lover of animals her entire life, Chelsey grew up riding, training, and showing horses as well as competing in dog obedience and agility trials in 4-H. As an adult, Chelsey continued working with horses until ultimately pursuing an education in Veterinary Sciences. During her time in school, she volunteered regularly at one of the local animal shelters while working as a veterinary assistant. Chelsey not only graduated from the Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology with Dean's Honors, but she was also one of only two students who were accepted into an internship in a zoo (a very difficult and competitive field to break into).
Eventually returning to her home town, Chelsey worked as a Veterinary Technician in a mixed animal practice where she fell in love with bernese mountain dogs. Her first Bernese Mountain Dog, Maggie, went on to produce her very first bernedoodle puppy in the spring of 2015. Chelsey has been breeding Bernedoodles ever since.
Joseph Bucciarelli is an army veteran who has been a part of Timber Ridge since its creation in 2018.
