What is the weight of a full-grown Bernedoodle? 

  • Micro-Mini: 15-25 lbs.

  • Mini: 30-50 lbs.

  • Standard: 50-80 lbs.

Generations of Bernedoodles:

  • F1 Mini Bernedoodles are a result of a pure-bred Bernese Mountain Dog crossed with a pure-bred Poodle. F1 is first-generation cross, in which the pup is 50% Bernese Mountain Dog and 50% Poodle. The F1 cross is considered the healthiest, as the parents have the least likelihood of contributing genes for common inheritable diseases. Low maintenance coat with wave and considered minimal to no shed.

  • F1b is a Bernedoodle bred with a Poodle. F1b Mini Bernedoodles will have a higher success rate for no shed, and are recommended for families with moderate to severe allergies. The puppy is 25% Bernese, and 75%Poodle. F1b puppies are the most likely to be non-shedding and allergy-friendly.

Will my puppy have a microchip?

We microchip puppies prior to going home. Microchipping is a very easy, affordable process that a veterinarian can easily do.

What is the difference between male and female Bernedoodles?

Males tend to be larger than females, but beyond that, there is not a major difference between the genders. The differences are quite subtle, and both males and females make amazing pets. We think temperament is more important than gender when matching dogs to owners.

What are the grooming requirements for a Bernedoodle?

  •  A Bernedoodle’s shedding is minimal or non-existent. However, it does need to be brushed regularly to prevent matting, and clipped every 8-12 weeks or so, depending on your preferences and the dog’s activities. If your Bernedoodle is very active outdoors, you will likely find a shorter clip easier to maintain. But many owners enjoy the look of them in a fuller coat. A curly coat is less likely to shed but more likely to become matted if not brushed regularly. Daily brushing will be required, as well as professional grooming every 8-12 weeks.

  • Make sure to be very specific with the groomer as to how you want your dog groomed; “NO POODLES CUTS ALLOWED!” :]  Most groomers will not have cut a Bernedoodle and will default to a standard Poodle clip. So be specific and show the groomer photos of how you want your dog to look.

  • Also Avoid bathing your Bernedoodle too often, as it strips essential oils from the coat.

Are they hypoallergenic?

There is no such thing as a fully-hypoallergenic dog; Bernedoodles tend to be allergy-friendly. Most people with allergies to dog dander (i.e., those who experience sneezing, watery eyes) are fine with a Bernedoodle.

Every Bernedoodle has a different coat. The curlier the coat the less it will shed. Most Bernedoodles have the wavy type coat that is low- to non-shedding. If you are allergic to dog saliva you will most likely be allergic to Bernedoodles. You will know if you are allergic to saliva if your skin will break out in hives when a dog licks you. We always suggest that if allergies are involved, customers should meet some Bernedoodles if they can. Also, we will allow a couple of weeks to see if you are allergic to your puppy and will help re-home it if there’s a problem. This has happened very rarely.

Do you have a contract?

Yes, you can find a copy of our contract here.

How are your Bernedoodles raised?

We live on 30 acres with a pond, 20 acres of that is fenced in to give our females plenty of room for exercise and roaming, swimming, we keep them supplied with bones from the local butcher to keep them occupied for hours! We do have a kennel area, heated and cooled, where they spend the nights and for times we leave for a few hours. Our puppies are raised in our nursery area and brought into the house or to the front yard daily [weather permitting] for playtime and socialized by any of our 6 little girls:] they also have a doggy door for outside access. 

What will puppy come home with?

They will be up to date on shots and deworming, they will have a shot record, a vet certificate, a signed health contract, and a small food kit. 

What coat type will my puppy have?

Our puppies will range in coat types from curly to wavy.
