If you’re forever devoted to the Poodle or Bernese Mountain Dog, wait until you meet the happy-go-lucky Bernedoodle. The Bernedoodle, also called Bernadoodle, is a designer breed that combines the traits of their Poodle and Bernese Mountain Dog parents. These lovable fur-babies are friendly and playful, making them a great fit for just about any household. When you meet a Bernedoodle for the first time, you’ll likely find yourself falling for that cute teddy bear face and soft fur.
Are you wondering if the Bernedoodle is your perfect furry match? Before you reach a decision, take a look at 6 things you should know about these snuggly furry cuties!
Thanks to their Poodle parentage, Bernedoodles tend to vary in size. Some Bernedoodles weigh as little as 20 pounds (10-12 inches tall) while others reach up to 90 pounds (22 inches tall)! If you need help choosing the right-sized Bernadoodle for your home, always check out their Poodle parent.
A full-sized Bernedoodle (22 inches tall) is usually a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and Standard Poodle. Standard Poodles are big pooches, standing over 15 inches tall, so it makes sense that their offspring inherit their tall stature. Likewise, smaller Bernedoodles (10-12 inches tall) have a Miniature Poodle parent that gives them their cute lapdog size.
There is no greater roommate than a Bernedoodle. Bernedoodles can adapt well to apartments and other types of living environments.
Due to the Poodle’s influence, however, these fur-babies require exercise and consistent activity to be happy. They also need plenty of affection from their favorite humans. Be sure to take your Bernedoodle out for long walks or a game of fetch to satisfy their appetite for activity.
Do you dread getting dog hairs all over your furniture? You’re in luck! Bernedoodles have gorgeous, fluffy fur but like their Poodle parents, their coat does not shed often.
The lack of shedding can also prevent you and other family members from contracting allergies. Of course, not every hypoallergenic dog is 100% allergy-free so make sure to research and ask our Pet Counselors about this wonderful breed.
Predicting a Bernedoodles coat colors can be unpredictable! Most Bernedoodles come with a color combination of their Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle parents.
Some common coat colors are white, black, brown—there’s also a beautiful tri-color mix that’s most sought after by pet owners but it’s extremely rare. Bernedoodles tend to be charming and cheerful dogs, regardless of their coat color.
Many Bernedoodles are chosen and trained to become therapy dogs. And for good reason. This breed is naturally social and always eager to please their owners, no matter what. They can be a little stubborn at first, but with enough persistence, Bernedoodles learn to follow through and obey commands.
This makes them amazing with any job that involves interacting with people. As therapy dogs, Bernedoodles get their daily dose of human companionship and activity they crave. And as a bonus, they get to show off their cuddly personalities.
Along with their friendliness, Bernedoodles are loyal, goofy, and affectionate. They love being around people so much, especially their human family. These pooches need both playtime and cuddle sessions with their favorite humans to be happy.
Bernedoodles hate spending time alone for hours so it’s important that a family member or another pet keeps them company. We’re certain your Bernedoodle will always be waiting for you to arrive home!
Bernedoodles are a wonderful breed that can light up your life. As with most breeds, every puppy parent should consider their lifestyle, personality, and other factors before choosing a puppy. Bernedoodles are very social dogs so they require plenty of human attention. Otherwise, they’ll develop bad habits that can leave them homeless. Their stubborn streak can be reduced with training and love. If you’re interested in this designer breed, be sure to visit Our Available Puppies page and visit your nearest Petland!
