ABOUT THE BERNEDOODLE
The Bernedoodle is a mix between a Bernese Mountain dog and a Standard Poodle. Bernedoodles are a very mellow, friendly, and loyal breed. We currently raise F1B, F2B, and Multigen Standard and Mini Bernedoodles.
Our Bernedoodles can have a straight, wavy, or curly coat depending on the generation and parents used. Our Bernedoodles tend to shed very little if any at all. F1B, F2B, and Multigen Bernedoodles are recommended for those with mild pet allergies.
The Bernedoodle coat will require frequent brushing when grown out and is fairly easy to maintain when trimmed. A Bernedoodle's coat is different than a double coated dog and can be shaved without damaging the hair. We recommend daily brushing and professional grooming every 6-8 weeks to avoid tangles and matting.
Bernedoodles come in a variety colors such as Black Tri, Bi-Black, and Sable. We focus mainly on Phantom and Tri colors. Tri Bernedoodles are Black and White with copper trim along their face and/or legs, and above the eyes. Phantom Bernedoodles are Black with copper trim along their face, legs, chest, and above the eyes. Please see our DOODLE COLORS page for more info on different coloration and patterns.
Our Standard Bernedoodles generally range from 24-26 inches at the shoulder and can weigh between 50-90+ pounds. Our Mini Bernedoodles generally range from 19-22 inches at the shoulder and can weigh between 30-40+ pounds. Females tend to be smaller than males.
The Bernedoodle is a happy-go-lucky breed who is loyal and laid back. They are a gentle giant who generally do great with kids of all ages. They are social and love being around their humans.
Bernedoodles are intelligent and training must be done with rewards, firmness, patience and consistency. Basic training should start as soon as you take your Bernedoodle puppy home.
The Bernedoodle is an easy going breed who will need daily walks and exercise. They will require mental stimulation to prevent boredom and destruction in the home. They have a low to medium energy level and are perfect for those who like to get outdoors but also enjoy lounging around the house.
