The Bernedoodle is a hybrid breed of dog that is created by crossing a Bernese Mountain Dog with a Poodle. This breed has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its unique appearance and friendly personality. The Bernedoodle is an intelligent, loyal, and affectionate companion that makes an excellent family pet.

Appearance: The Bernedoodle has a unique look that combines the best features of both parent breeds. They have the long, silky coat of the Poodle with the distinctive markings of the Bernese Mountain Dog. The coat can be either wavy or curly and comes in a variety of colors including black, white, brown, red, cream, silver, and gray.

Lifespan: The average lifespan for a Bernedoodle is between 10-15 years when properly cared for.

Size & Weight: Depending on which type of Poodle was used in breeding (Standard or Miniature), the size and weight can vary greatly from one individual to another. Generally speaking though, most adult Bernedoodles will weigh between 25-50 pounds and stand at around 18-24 inches tall at the shoulder when fully grown.

Colors: As mentioned above, there are many different color variations available for this breed including black & white; brown & white; red & white; cream & white; silver & gray; etc…

Personality: The Bernedoodle is known for being an intelligent and loyal companion who loves to please their owners. They are also very affectionate towards their families and enjoy spending time with them as much as possible. This breed tends to be quite active so they need plenty of exercise each day in order to stay healthy and happy!

Friendliness: When it comes to other dogs or animals in general, most Bernedoodles are very friendly towards them as long as they have been properly socialized from an early age. They also tend to get along well with children if given enough attention from their owners so they don’t feel neglected or ignored by their human companions!

Temperament: In general this breed has an even temperament which makes them great family pets since they don’t tend to be overly aggressive or shy around strangers or new environments/situations like some other breeds might be prone too!

Health: As with any purebred dog there are certain health issues that may arise due to genetic predisposition such as hip dysplasia or eye problems but overall this breed tends to be quite healthy if given proper care throughout its life span!

Adaptability Level: Due to its intelligence level combined with its friendly nature towards people/other animals/children etc., this breed does well in almost any environment making it highly adaptable no matter where you live!

Benefits Of Having A Pet Bernddle Dog As A Pet : One major benefit of having a pet Bernddle dog is that they require minimal grooming compared to other breeds due their low shedding coats which means less mess around your home! Additionally these dogs tend not only make great companions but also provide emotional support for those who need it most – making them ideal therapy dogs too! Finally these pups love being active so taking them out on walks/runs/hikes etc., will help keep both you AND your pup fit while having fun together at the same time – what more could you ask for?!


The Bernedoodle is a cross between the Bernese Mountain Dog and the Poodle. The Bernedoodle is a relatively new breed of dog, first appearing in the early 2000s. The Bernedoodle is a popular choice for people looking for a hypoallergenic, low-shedding dog.

The Bernese Mountain Dog is a large, working breed of dog originating in the Swiss Alps. The Bernese Mountain Dog was used for centuries as a farm dog, working alongside farmers to herd cattle and pull carts. In the late 1800s, the breed began to decline in popularity as mechanization replaced many of their traditional roles on farms. By the early 1900s, the breed was close to extinction.

The Poodle is a water-loving breed of dog that originated in Germany. Poodles were originally bred as hunting dogs, and their coat was specially adapted to help them swim in cold water. Poodles come in three sizes: Standard, Miniature, and Toy.

In the early 2000s, Australian breeder Sherry Rupke began crossing Bernese Mountain Dogs with Standard Poodles to create the Bernedoodle. Rupke chose Standard Poodles for their intelligence and trainability, and she hoped that crossing them with Bernese Mountain Dogs would result in a hypoallergenic, low-shedding dog with all the best qualities of both breeds.

Rupke's first generation of Bernedoodles (F1) were 50% Bernese Mountain Dog and 50% Standard Poodle. These dogs inherited many of the best qualities of both breeds: they were intelligent and easy to train like Standard Poodles; and they had low-shedding coats likeBernese Mountain Dogs. However, they also inherited some of the less desirable qualities of both breeds: they could be high-strung like Standard Poodles; and they could be stubborn likeBernese Mountain Dogs.

In order to create a more consistent temperament in subsequent generations of Bernedoodles (F2), Rupke began breeding F1 females back to Standard Poodle males (resulting in F1B puppies that were 75% Standard Poodle). She also began breeding F1 males back toBernese Mountain Dog females (resulting in F1BB puppies that were 75%Bernese Mountain Dog). These two lines of breeding resulted in puppies that were more predictable in terms of temperament and coat type than previous generations ofBernedoodles.

The popularity of the Bernedoodle has grown steadily since Sherry Rupke first created them in Australia over 15 years ago. Today, there are hundreds of reputable breeders all over the world producing high-quality Bernedoodles in all three size varieties: Standard, Miniature, and Toy."
