About Bernedoodles

Pairing the best of both breeds is what makes this mix so wonderful, producing allergy friendly family pets with a delightful temperament.

We carefully select our breeding dogs for genetics, temperament, color, health and longevity. Our goal is to combine these attributes to make certain that you receive a family pet that will bring years of love, laughter, joy and companionship into your home.

Bernedoodle

Bernedoodles are known for their intelligence, affection, sociability and goofy cheerful attitudes. They are cute, loyal, friendly, even tempered, gentle and kind. This combination of traits makes them ideal candidates for service, therapy or assistance dogs as well as wonderful family companions. The F1 bernedoodle can have a wavy to straight coat and we rarely see the curly coats in this first generation. The F1’s have minimal shedding and are great for those with mild allergies. The F1B bernedoodle’s which are 75% poodle will have a mix of soft wavy fleece coats to more dense curly coats amongst the litter. The F1B’s will be the most non-shedding and hypo-allergenic. The Australian Bernedoodles will have more of a thick soft fleece coat with mild wave and will have the same haircoat characteristics as the first and second generations of the Berner/poodle mix.

Bernese Mountain Dog

Bernese Mountain Dogs are a true family companion. The Berner was raised in the Swiss Alps as a farm dog to accompany the alpine herders and dairymen. They were used to herd cattle, pull carts, and be a watchdog and loyal companion. They are good natured, self assured and affectionate and generally do well with children and make excellent guardians. They can tend to be somewhat aloof and standoffish to strangers. Unfortunately the Bernese is one of the short-lived dog breeds compared to other breeds of similar size with an unusually high mortality rate due to musculoskeletal causes and a high rate of fatal cancers. Taking this into consideration, I look for longevity in the lines of my breeding dogs, genetic testing and hip and elbow certifications are done on each of my dogs, to ensure that they are worthy of breeding. Mixing the Poodle with the Bernese and the influence of the hybrid vigor has shown a significant increase in the longevity of this wonderful breed.

Poodle

No matter the size, Poodles have a playful but dignified personality and keen intelligence. The poodle is no snob, they are people-friendly dogs who want to stay close to their families and are always up for a good game. The poodle’s personality is intelligent, loving, loyal and mischievous. Poodles have a goofy streak and love to play, but they are also eager to please.

Australian Labradoodle

The ALB was created in Australia by mixing labrador, poodle, irish water spaniel and cocker spaniel.  The goal was to take the best attributes of each breed and create a non shedding dog with gentleness and trainability.  The Australian Labradoodle is an intelligent dog with a gentle loving temperament, they have a sturdy flowing balanced confirmation and beautiful wavy fleece coats that are low to non-shedding and allergy friendly.

Generations

  • F1 or First Generation is a Bernese Mountain Dog bred to a poodle, or a 50/50 mix. This pairing is low-to-minimal shedding and allergy friendly.
  • F1B is a bernedoodle bred back to a poodle. This results in a 25% Berner and 75% poodle. This produces the most hypo-allergenic and non-shedding dog.
  • Multi-gen is a F1 Bernedoodle bred to a F1B Bernedoodle. This pairing will produce a hypo allergenic dog with non-shedding and more consistent coat traits.
  • Australian Bernedoodle. This can be either a 1st Generation which is 50% Bernese/50% Australian Labradoodle or 2nd Genereation which is 50% Bernedoodle/50% ALB
    These two pairings produce a soft fleecy coat with a more stout bone structure and boxy head.  The first generation breeding will produce Tricolor, Phantom and Bi-color litters, while the 2nd generation breedings with a bernedoodle, will have a variety of different coloring in the litter. There is NO Australian Shepherd in an Australian Bernedoodle.
