What is a Bernedoodle?
A Bernedoodle is a cross between a Poodle and a Bernese Mountain Dog. This cross creates a healthy, beautiful pup which often has the goofiness of a Poodle and is generally easy going and very loyal, like the Bernese. They will be low -to-non shedding and hypoallergenic. Because of the hybrid, no two puppies are alike. We are just as thrilled as anyone to see the diversity of each litter of pups!
What is the average adult Bernedoodle’s weight?
Average of a Standard Bernedoodle is between 70-90 lb. Average of a Medium Bernedoodle is 45-65 lb.

A Standard Bernedoodle will grow to be approximately 23-29 inches at the shoulder. A Medium Bernedoodle will grow to be about 18-22 inches at the shoulder.

May I contact you with questions about my puppy after I bring it home?
I’ve heard Bernese Mountain Dogs can be stubborn. Is this also true of a Bernedoodle?
Yes, Bernese can have some stubborn traits in them, such as lying on their backs when given a command. Both the Bernese Mountain dog and Poodle are highly intelligent making them very receptive to training and puppy obedience classes.
What kind of a personality does a Bernedoodle have?
Bernedoodles have plenty of character that goes along with their outgoing, happy, friendly personality. They are friendly and full of love for all ages. They are highly intelligent social creatures that love to please.
Does the Bernedoodle shed and if so, how much?
Bernedoodles are classed low to non-shedding. They can have three different coat types: curly, wavy, and straight. The curlier the coat on a Bernedoodle, the less likely your dog will shed. The curly coats will also possess more of the poodle traits such as being hypoallergenic. Choosing a puppy with a curlier coat means more time and money spent on grooming.
How often will I need to groom my Bernedoodle?
If you keep your Bernedoodle’s coat brushed daily or at the very least weekly, it’s coat should stay free of mats. If mats develop, the best and easiest way to get rid of them is by buzzing the coat. If you keep your Bernedoodle brushed, once every three months should suffice for a hair-cut.
