Ever heard of the Australian bernedoodle? This breed is a wonderful choice for anyone looking for a loving and intelligent companion! Read on to learn more about this breed and what they’re all about.

What is an Australian Bernedoodle?

Nope, this is not a bernedoodle that was bred in another part of the world. In fact, bernedoodles and Australian bernedoodles are two breeds with very different heritage.

So, what is an Australian bernedoodle? Let’s start at the beginning. The beloved bernedoodle is a cross between the loyal and good-natured Bernese mountain dog and the intelligent and dignified poodle. Now, take a bernedoodle and cross it with an Australian labradoodle.

The Australian labradoodle was created in Australia by mixing labrador, poodle, Irish water spaniel, and cocker spaniel together. The goal was to take the best attributes of each breed and create a gentle, trainable dog with a non-shedding coat.

By taking a bernedoodle (any generation) and crossing it with an Australian labradoodle, you’ll end up with an Australian bernedoodle!

Let us also clear up a common misconception about the breed: there is NO Australian shepherd in an Australian bernedoodle.

Bernedoodle vs Australian Bernedoodle

A common question is, what is the difference between a bernedoodle and an Australian bernedoodle?

As mentioned above: the breeds that make them up. Besides that, there isn’t much that makes these breeds too different. So, if you’re wondering which dog breed is better, don’t spend too much time fretting over the question. Both these dogs are excellent pets, have incredible personalities, and are very loyal to their owners and families. Get the dog you want, and know you’ll have a furry best friend!

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re considering adding an Australian bernedoodle to your life, you likely have some questions. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about this breed.

What do They Look Like?

Physical features of pups will vary depending on parentage, but they generally have low to minimal shedding coats with a soft fleece coat. This makes the breed a great pet for those dog lovers with allergies.

This breed also has a more stout bone structure and boxy head. First-generation breeding will produce Tricolor, Phantom, and Bi-color litters, while 2nd-generation or multi-gen breedings will have a variety of beautiful coloring in the litters.

What is Their Temperament?

While there are a lot of dogs mixed into the Australian bernedoodle, you can be sure you’re getting a dog with a wonderful temperament. These pups, along with their parents, are known for being gentle, playful, intelligent, and loyal. They are known for being the best watchdogs because of their superb senses and intelligence. They also make for wonderful therapy dogs because of their intelligence and gentle nature.

This breed also makes the perfect cuddle buddy, but be aware they still need regular exercise. Make sure to take them on walks, play fetch, go for a hike, and participate in other outdoor activities to keep them in good shape. Exercising their brains is also important! Giving them mentally stimulating activities like a snuffle mat or a puzzle toy will help keep your pup healthy and happy.

Are They Easy to Train?

Training this breed isn’t too tricky, and their intelligence makes it easy and an excellent bonding experience between you and your pup. Starting early and utilizing positive reinforcement will ensure you and your puppy get the most out of your training sessions.

And remember – it’s essential to socialize your Australian bernedoodle. Just like training, this is something you want to start early to ensure your pup grows up to become a well-adjusted dog. When your dog is more comfortable in a wider variety of situations, they’ll be less likely to behave aggressively when faced with something new.

What is their Average Life Expectancy?

Australian bernedoodles are generally healthy dogs with an average lifespan of 12 to 15 years. But, like all dogs, they can be prone to certain health issues that can affect their lifespan. To ensure a happy, healthy dog, check that your breeder is reputable and does health testing on their dogs, keep up with regular vet visits throughout your dog’s life, and maintain a healthy lifestyle for your dog.

What are their Grooming Requirements?

With “bernedoodle” in the name, know that your dog will need to be brushed regularly! With an Australian bernedoodle’s fleecy coat, brushing often is essential to help remove any tangles, mats, and loose hair. A professional trim and bath regularly will also be needed to keep them beautiful.
