After planting my berries last spring they began to loose their leaves and the branches have stopped growing. Do berry plants go dormant in winter ?

Yes, they usually prefer a dormancy to fruit properly. They really like to have a period under 40 degrees for some time. You can find the chill hours for your specific variety with a google search.
