What is a Bernedoodle?

Mini Bernedoodle (aka Bernadoodle or Berniedoodle) puppies are a mix of a mini Poodle and a Bernese Mountain Dog. A Standard Bernedoodle crosses a BMD with a standard Poodle. Properly bred Bernedoodle and mini Bernedoodle dogs tend to be loyal and less active than some other Doodle breeds.

Do Bernedoodles shed?

Overall, Bernedoodles are a great breed choice for those who suffer from pet allergies or want to avoid the added mess of dog hair in their home, as they tend to be low-shedding and hypoallergenic. For those who deal with allergies, we encourage you to consider adopting a curly-coated pup. Typically, the curlier the coat, the less shedding that pup will experience as an adult. However, it’s still important to brush them regularly in order to reduce any shedding and keep their coat looking healthy and beautiful. With a little extra care, you can enjoy the many benefits of owning a Bernedoodle without worrying about shedding. If you are looking for a non-shedding, hypoallergenic puppy, read our article about “The F1b Advantage“. Or check out, “Is It Appropriate To Call Doodles ‘Hypoallergenic’?“.

How big do Bernedoodles get?
