EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!
WHAT ARE THEY A COMBO OF?
That's an easy one!
Bernedoodles are a combo of
BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOGS
WHAT SIZES DO THEY COME IN?
This is possible because of the various sizes poodles come in
Personalities vary GREATLY with the size, so be sure to read below about the personalities connected to e
* NOTE: All breeders seem to label their sizes differently! Be sure to check the expected weight with your breeder!
HOW HYPOALLERGENIC ARE THEY?
It all depends on the way they are bred and their generation. HERE is more info on generations!
It is NOT true that only F1B generations are non shedding, other generations can be just as hypoallergenic.
If you have severe allergies, we recommend more poodle backcross in your puppy.
We also offer a tee shirt test, where we'll actually send you a tee shirt that has been worn by one of our dogs who is a similar generation to what we recommend for you, just so you can have extra peace of mind.
WHAT IS ARE THEIR PERSONALITIES LIKE?
Sweet, silly, and a little rambunctious is the easiest way do describe our bernedoodles!
Motivated often by their own whims
Very fun and playful
Some of the more energetic doodle breeds
Fun-loving companion dogs
BE AWARE though...personalities in bernedoodles vary G-R-E-A-T-L-Y by their sizes due to size of poodle mixed in to create their sizes!
PERSONALITY BASICS BELOW!
Less Patient, can be snappy with young kids
Best for singles, couples, or retirees with kids over 8
Often more vocal
Patient most of the time, good for kids
Great for most families who like the 'big dog' personality but are intimidated by the size
Moderate activity level
Most patient size, great for kids
Excellent match for nearly any family
Lower activity level
HOW TRAINABLE ARE THEY?
Bernedoodles are easier to train than most dogs due to their poodle ancestry, but can struggle with a few things:
- Can be stubborn
- Motivated by their own desires
- Shorter attention spans
Again, very important to pay attention to sizes!
Standard Bernedoodles - Most Trainable
(best attention span, least energetic -)
Medium Bernedoodles - Median Trainability
(good attention span, somewhat energetic)
Mini Bernedoodles - Least Trainable
(shorter attention span, more energetic)
WHAT COLORS DO THEY COME IN?
Contrary to popular opinion that bernedoodles can only be tri-colored- they actually come in a vast array of colors, including:
Sables & Brindles
We have more to say about the colors they come in HERE!
ARE THEY GOOD WITH KIDS?
Bernedoodles are generally good with kids, but sometimes don't understand how big & rambunctious they are, which makes them difficult pets for younger, more 'fragile' children who can be knocked over easily.
Best temperament with kids, but size can be intimidating to some kids. This size and breed is generally very tolerant, but not super aware of their own bodies.
Likely the best temperament for kids in the bernedoodle realm as they are not quite as large, and still have a good level of playfulness to them.
Generally not the best match for younger kids due to being less patient and tolerant of the activity & noise level that kids can produce along with children sometimes not understanding a dog's boundaries.
