What is a Bernedoodle
A Bernedoodle is the result of breeding a beautiful & calm tempered Bernese Mountain Dog
to a quick-witted & non-shedding Poodle.
Bernese Mountain Dogs, or Berners, emerged from the Swiss Alps as working dogs where they were harnessed to pull carts, herd livestock, and watch over the family farm. They have iconic markings in tricolor form, and they are intensely loyal, intelligent, and social. If you have ever encountered a Berner, you may be familiar with Berner lean, where they lovingly rest their body weight on the side of your leg.
The Bernedoodle's coat is mainly wavy & non-shedding – they acquire this from their Poodle genes and it’s great for people with pet allergies as most of these dogs are hypoallergenic.
Bernedoodles are rapidly gaining in popularity because of their sunny dispositions, social nature & excellent aptitudes. They are phenomenal family dogs & therapy dogs. Although the American Kennel Club (AKC) does not recognize them as an actual pure breed.
Bernedoodles that we raise are broken down into the following generations or crossbreeds:
First Generations, abbreviated to F1, are half purebred AKC Bernese Mountain Dog and half purebred AKC poodle.
