About the Bernedoodle breed

The Bernedoodle is a beautiful cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle. This crossbreed is a blend  of  the clever goofiness of the poodle with the placid loyalty of the Bernese. What’s more, most Bernedoodles are low- to non-shedding, and with the right coat type is a safe bet for most people with allergies.

Bernedoodle pictures

I believe the Bernedoodle is one of the most perfect companion dogs for those who love larger dogs.

Although they are stunning, they are not bred for the show ring.

Bernedoodles are meant to be at your side no matter whether you are hiking, at the pub on a Sunday afternoon, or lying on the couch watching a movie. Their only job is to be your best friend.

No two Bernedoodles are identical. The genes from the parent breeds form in unique ways, and i am very excited to see what each litter will produce. With that, prospective new owners must understand that there can be a lot of variation in a cross breed litter, and that is why I help match our owners with the best dog for their circumstances.

Purebreds may be the preferred choice for people who want predictability. 

A Well-bred Berner is very similar to the next: sweet, loving, and calm. One well-bred Poodle is also very similar to the next: playful, intelligent and goofy.

Notice that I emphasize “well-bred.” Like so many purebreds, Bernese and Poodles have been highly inbred over the past century.

This has led not only to health problems, but also temperament issues. Poorly bred Berners may be extremely stubborn and skittish. Poorly bred Poodles may be hyper and neurotic.

It is incredibly difficult to find healthy Bernese and Poodles with calm temperaments. 

If as breeders we  do our job well  in selecting the right parents, crossing purebred dogs of different breeds results in puppies that are healthier than either of their parents.

This is because the two breeds are generally prone to different genetic problems.

Crossbreeds such as the Bernedoodle are only likely to inherit a health problem that is common to both the Poodle and the Bernese—two breeds that share few common diseases.

Bernedoodles, as with with goldendoodle,  have what is referred to as “hybrid vigor,” and can be expected to live healthier, longer lives than their purebred parents. 

 

The Bernese Mountain dog

I absolutely adore the Bernese Mountain dogs placid, easygoing nature and extreme loyalty. They are completely dedicated to their families, with a special fondness for children. The Bernese are known for leaning on people to soak up all possible attention.

Bernese Mountain dogs are exceptionally beautiful dogs with their distinctive tri-colored coats. Bred in the Swiss Alps as farm dogs that pulled carts or drove cattle to market, the Bernese thrives in cold weather, and has a double coat that sheds quite heavily. They are intelligent, strong dog that have a moderate need for exercise. This versatile breed does well in agility, tracking, herding, and therapy work.

A significant number of Bernese are afflicted with hip and elbow dysplasia, or succumb to inherited cancer, heart disease, or epilepsy in middle age.

While cancer is the leading cause of death for dogs in general, Bernese have a much higher rate of fatal cancer than other breeds. Overall, the Bernese Mountain dog is one of the shorter-lived dog breeds, with a life expectancy of just 6-8 years. This is particularly sad when they are known to be slow to mature, and somewhat challenging to train.

Without proper socialization, these naturally cautious and reserved dogs can become skittish and suspicious, and may develop separation anxiety. They can also be decidedly stubborn. Yet the Bernese also has a deep need to please its humans and is surprisingly sensitive. As a result, training a Bernese requires a great deal of patience and a gentle hand.

 

The Poodle

Everyone knows that the Poodle ranks high on the canine intelligence scale. They are very trainable and excel in obedience. Most people are also aware that their low- to non-shedding coat makes poodles a great choice for those with allergies.

What many don’t realise, is how goofy and fun poodles are. They are the clowns of the dog world, and it’s no coincidence they were used in circus acts for centuries.

 The breed originated as a duck hunter in Germany, where the word “pudelin” refers to splashing in water. The Standard Poodle began its development as a retrieving water dog more than 400 years ago. With a crisp, curly coat as protection against the elements, superlative swimming ability, and off-the-charts intelligence, the Poodle was, and still is, a magnificent retriever.

Poodles come in three sizes and a wide variety of colours. Where most dogs have double coats, poodles have a single layer coat of dense, curly fur that sheds minimally but does matt without proper care. 

A typical Poodle is lively and playful, with a bouncy prance to its walk. It thrives best in a busy household where it can get plenty of attention and stimulation. Vigorous exercise and ongoing training are the keys to managing the Poodle’s exuberance. If bored, Poodles may get into mischief. They are also quick to sound an alert, and have earned a reputation for barking. 

Some Poodles are high strung and sensitive to stress. They may have serious health problems, including eye, skin, and digestive diseases, as well as immune system diseases. The most common problems are bloat/torsion, thyroid issues, tracheal collapse, epilepsy, sebaceous adenitis, juvenile renal disease, and cancer.

The Bernedoodle

selective crossbreeding combines the traits and characteristics of its purebred parents; with careful, conscientious breeding, the resulting pups may end up with the best attributes of each.

In the case of the Bernedoodle, the blend of the Bernese and the Poodle produces a smart, friendly, playful dog.

They tend to have the sweetness and loyalty of the Bernese, and the goofy liveliness and intelligence of the Poodle.

Like the Bernese, they are gentle around children and the vulnerable, and because they love to work, they often make excellent therapy dogs.

Most Bernedoodles have a medium activity level. They love to play, run, and take walks with their families, and may inherit the Poodle’s love for retrieving and swimming.

When it’s time to relax, Bernedoodles are usually happy to join you on the settee for a snuggle.

Most of them have little need for personal space.

 They are happy, goofy, smart, charming, curious, friendly, social, enthusiastic, cuddly, and loving. 

Bernedoodles aren’t always perfect, however. Despite best efforts to breed from only the best purebreds, some puppies may inherit stubbornness or sensitivity from the Bernese.

Their training requires patience, a light touch, and positive reinforcement.

Unless we are vigilant, Bernedoodles may also inherit the Berner’s cautiousness with strangers and end up being somewhat skittish. Further, from the Poodle they can inherit an extremely high level of energy. 

When bred well, however, the Bernedoodle is an intelligent, social, fun, crossbreed with character and charisma.

On the whole, Bernedoodles tend to be quite similar to Goldendoodles in nature, with the most notable difference being that the Bernedoodle can be headstrong.

This is more pronounced at the puppy stage, and tends to disappear when the Bernedoodle is older and trained.

Every dog has a different personality, but the two breeds have much in common, and those traits make them excellent family pets. 

 

Appearance

F1 Bernedoodles are usually pure black, black-and-white, black-and-tan, or tri-colour (black, white and tan.

 Their overall appearance combines elements of the Bernese and the Poodle. Beyond colour, well chosen parents tend to blend the traits of the Poodle and the Bernese in a fairly consistent way. 

Many Owners want a tri-color Bernedoodle, with markings as similar as possible to those of the Bernese Mountain Dog. That look is challenging to achieve, and people may have to wait a long time for the perfect tri coloured bernedoodle puppy.

I would stress that temperament is far more important than colour and ALL bernedoodles are absolutely beautiful and make wonderful LARGE family companions.

However in the effort to produce as many tri coloured Bernedoodle puppies as we can we have spent many years researching the breed and have finally found a boy who we hope can help with that. He is from wonderful fully health tested lines and was born in America.

He joins our family soon will hopefully produce wonderful bernedoodle puppies over the years with both our Bernese girls.

Our first litter of tri bernedoodles is expected to be Winter 2019 with Our Daenerys.

Our Puppies are strictly pets only.

NON BREEDING 

We have official contracts to ensure non of our puppies are ever bred from.

If our contracts are broken a £20,000 fine will be enforced by the courts.
