Introduction

A Bernedoodle is a delightful combination of the Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle breeds. The Bernedoodle inherits a blend of active, loyal, intelligent, calm, and strong characteristics. By bringing together these two breeds, the Bernedoodle emerges as a clever and enjoyable companion, suitable for both children and adults. What truly sets this breed apart and makes it a fantastic choice for many families is the balance it strikes between the Poodle's active nature outdoors and the Bernese Mountain Dog's contentment to be at their family's side. Families get to experience the best of both worlds with this unique mix.

Size and coloring

Bernedoodles are range in sizes. A "Standard" Bernedoodle will range from approximately 65 to 85 pounds. However, there are also mini Bernedoodles available for those who prefer a smaller companion. Mini Bernedoodles weigh between 30 and 50 pounds, while an even tinier variation, known as Micro or Micromini Bernedoodle, typically weigh around 15 to 25 pounds.

 

Bernedoodles come in many different colors, including the Traditional tri-color like the Bernese, "Phantom" coloring (flakes of more than one color), Sable, black, Merle, and several variations of the above.

One of the reasons why Bernedoodles are so well-suited for numerous families is the wide array of choices available in terms of coloration and sizes. This allows prospective owners to select a Bernedoodle that aligns with their preferences and lifestyle, ensuring a perfect match for their family dynamic.

Generations

You might come across the terms F1 Bernedoodles and F1b Bernedoodles. An F1 Bernedoodle is a result of breeding a standard Poodle with a Bernese Mountain Dog. On the other hand, an F1b Bernedoodle is a cross between a standard Bernedoodle and a standard Poodle. An F2 Bernedoodle, meanwhile, is bred from two standard Bernedoodles. In terms of appearance, an F1b Bernedoodle will bear a closer resemblance to a Poodle, while the others will showcase more traits inherited from the Bernese Mountain Dog.
