Description of the Bernedoodle

Our Bernedoodles are a cross between a purebred Bernese Mountain Dog and a Standard Poodle. This cross creates a wonderful hybrid dog that has the benefits of first generation health strength. The Bernedoodle has a great coat that is a nice mix of the Bernese and the poodle. It is very low to no shed and is very soft to the touch. The coat does require some grooming so it is important to know that going into the decision process.

The Bernedoodle is a very outgoing, fun loving dog that wants to be around people. This is not a dog to lock in the backyard and forget about. Like the Bernese and the Poodle they are very social dogs. Very intelligent and extremely eager to please. We carefully select our parings and work hard to ensure that we balance the best traits of each of our wonderful dogs!

The colors of the Bernedoodles vary and tend to become more enhanced as the puppies grow. We have Tris, Brindles, Phantoms and combinations of the above. The pup you pick up will likely evolve and blossom to be even more attractive if that even seems possible!


This is a question that we get frequently! I have bred and raised Bernese Mountain dogs for many years and have owned them for over 25 years. There is something very special in the way that a Bernese touches your heart. It is hard for someone that has been owned by one to ever imagine another breed.

A lot of folks choose the Bernedoodle because of family members that have allergy issues and the low to no shed coat of the Bernedoodle . The Bernese does shed, or as we prefer to say, they leave little bits of Bernese love everywhere. This can be controlled somewhat with frequent brushing to remove the excess hair.

When you introduce the Standard Poodle into the Bernese Bloodlines it really does create a wonderful cross. The folks that have them can attest to just how wonderful they are, not just in personality but they really draw people in.... It is not a purebred Bernese but the Doodle does have a lot of the Bernese characteristics. The Standard Poodle in and of itself is an amazing breed. One of the older water retrieving breeds, they are intelligent and bring a lot to the table. They are fun loving and can be real entertainers!

It is truly a very personal choice but we are happy to talk you through the process and help you with the pro's and con's!
