Berkshire Poodles is a family owned breeding program run out of the home of Lee Kohlenberger, a Pittsfield Fire Fighter, and his wife Kaitlyn Kohlenberger, a Physical therapist. Lee and Kaitlyn have two young daughters, Jacqueline and Charlotte. Poodles are their hobby and passion, they are not a kennel. They pride themselves on their carefully planned litters based off of their always growing wait list, always finding happy homes for their puppies. It is their belief that poodles are the perfect dog for everyone!
Poodle's are the perfect dog for everyone. The high level of intelligence and ability to interact with other dogs, kids and visitors makes them the perfect family dog.
We health test our breeding age poodles for the following; OFA hips, OFA elbows, thyroid, & eye CERF. Our show dogs are sometimes tested further as a formality. Our poodles come from healthy, health tested lineage dating back many generations.
Poodles are our hobby and passion, we are not a kennel. We carefully plan our litters based off of our always building wait list. Call today to learn more about our adorable puppies.

We picked up Winston (born 1/4/18 to Hank and Marlo) on 3/11. Winston demonstrates eagerness to please and loves to spend time training. Lee (and family) do such a great job socializing their pups that Winston acclimated to our household of 3 cats and a 6 year old labradoodle within hours! He is a very loving little guy and clearly had a great start at Berkshire Poodles!Kimberly Green
I picked up my Polly on 1/13. Could not have made a better choice in breed of dog and breeder. After only a little over 2 weeks she has blossomed into such a sweetheart. She not only knows her name and comes when called but understands what “no” means(at least 90% of the time!). She has continued to amaze me with her intelligence. She was going in and out of crate after 3 days and now I have her actually jumping up at string of bells on door and barking to go out. She has not had an accident in the house in over 5 days. Thank you Lee, for such a wonderful companion.Linda Guaneri
We picked our poodle up yesterday and drove her 4 1/2 hours home and she was perfect! She walked on the leash pretty much like she had been doing it all her life! Got her home and she adapted so quickly! What an awesome pup! Lee and his wife were so kind and accommodating we couldn't ask for a better transition! Would recommend this breeder to anyone looking for a great poodle! They obviously love their dogs!Crystal Dewey
We really had a good experience with Lee and his father in regards to picking out our puppy and having the information and local references we needed about her health and care. She was an adorable puppy and has turned into a well behaved loving member of the family. She's a beautiful dog too and gets compliments everywhere we go.Ginny
Our Pally, now nine months old, is a delight in every way. She is smart, curious and very affectionate. She is never aggressive with anyone, human or canine; she just loves to be companionable and learn new things about the world. She has one weakness: socks. But if you keep your sock drawer closed, she is a practically perfect poodle.David Anderegg and Kelley DeLorenzo
