About Bernedoodles

Bernedoodles are a mix between a purebred Bernese Mountain Dog and a purebred Poodle. They’re known for their intelligent, lovable, and active personalities. We currently raise F1 and F1b Bernedoodles in standard and mini sizes.

Size

Bernedoodles can come in three sizes: tiny, miniature, and standard.  Currently, The Doodle Tribe breeds mini and standard size bernedoodles. When full grown, a standard Bernedoodle stands at 23-29 inches at the shoulder and weighs between 70-90 pounds. They have a life expectancy of 12-15 years. Mini bernedoodles stand at 17-23 inches at the shoulder and weigh between 25-40 pounds. They have a life expectancy of 13-17 years.

Bernedoodles usually reach their full height around 12 months and will reach their full weight around 2 years. Male Bernedoodles tend to be about 10% larger than female Bernedoodles.

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

When grooming your Bernedoodle, they need to be brushed at least once a week, but do better if they are brushed daily or every other day. Because they are low shedding, they need regular brushing to help them clean out their coats. Make sure you introduce grooming routines while your Bernedoodle is young so they get used to being brushed. Slick brushes are very popular among Bernedoodle owners. When brushing through your Bernedoodle’s coat, make sure you are careful to pick out or trim the matting on their fur. You should also keep an eye on their ears, as they grow hair there as well. Bernedoodles only need to be bathed every couple of months and their nails should be clipped every 3-4 weeks.

If you choose to take your Bernedoodle to a groomer, make sure they have had all of their vaccinations beforehand. You should take them to visit the groomer every 6-8 weeks. Their coat is best kept at a medium length, but can be a little shorter to avoid matting.

Appearance

Bernedoodles can come in black, black/brown, black/white, and black/brown/white. The black/brown/white combination is the most rare and most popular color combination. They also feature a variety of coat patterns, including Phantom, Brindle, and Merle. Looking at previous litters from breeding pairs is a good way of predicting what color combinations and patterns the next litter of puppies will have.

Temperament

Bernedoodles are the perfect dog for someone who wants a companion dog! As a mix of the Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle, Bernedoodles inherit both intelligence, and a charming, goofy demeanor. Bernedoodles are very social, and thrive around their family. They can be a little wary of strangers, so it is important to start socializing your Bernedoodles puppy with other people and animals when they are very young. You also shouldn’t leave them alone for long periods of time. Their gentle nature makes them the perfect family pet, especially for families with children and they are incredibly loyal to their owners. Their intelligence and goofy personality makes them great for playing games with, so make sure you teach them to play fetch! They also love cuddling with their owners and generally following them around during day to day activities. They have a moderate energy level, which easily allows them to fit into just about any lifestyle, and they are just as happy going on a walk as they are napping on your couch!

Training

Because Bernedoodles are very intelligent and eager to please, they can be easily trained. They can be a little strong willed, but if you start training them young, this can work to your advantage. Make sure to use a patient and consistent approach with your Bernedoodle. To help them focus, start by socializing them while they are very young and teaching them to walk on the leash. You should also make sure to crate train and potty train your Bernedoodle. Once they have mastered basic behaviors, you can try introducing tricks or agility training. Their intelligence makes them particularly suited to learning tricks.

Lifestyle and exercise

Like all dogs, Bernedoodles need regular, daily exercise. They should have at least 30 minutes of exercise 1 to 3 times every day. Bernedoodles require moderate exercise, so a hike, morning walk or playing fetch are all great options. They may also enjoy going to the dog park, where they can socialize with other dogs.

Bernedoodles do well with puzzle toys and other engaging activities that keep their minds sharp. Some Bernedoodles even enjoy swimming. However you choose to exercise your Bernedoodle, remember that they love spending time with their families, so make sure you are involved with them.

Full-grown Bernedoodles will eat 3-4.5 cups of food a day. Make sure to keep them on a feeding schedule to avoid bloating or overeating.

FAQs

What is a Bernedoodle?

A Bernedoodle is a mixed breed dog or a hybrid, resulting from a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle. They were first bred in 2003 in Canada. Bernedoodles have been designed to be companion dogs. They are also called Bernese Mountain Poos. Bernedoodles can differ in appearance. Some have more Poodle traits, and others have more Bernese Mountain dog traits.

Do Bernedoodles shed?

Standard Bernedoodles, the biggest among Bernedoodles, grow 23 to 29 inches tall and weigh around 70 to 90 pounds. Males tend to be larger than females once they are fully matured. 

Are Bernedoodles hypoallergenic?

Bernedoodles are hypoallergenic as they have their Poodle parent’s genetics. They are less likely to trigger allergic responses in people, However, no dog has a “nonallergic reaction” that is 100 percent.

How big do mini Bernedoodles get?

A miniature Bernedoodle grows 18 to 22 inches tall and weigh approximately  25 to 49 pounds. Male mini Bernadoodles generally tend to grow taller and heavier than their female litter mates.

How long do Bernedoodles live?

The average lifespan of a Bernedoodle is 12 to 18 years. They are generally considered healthy and long-lived dogs. Smaller Bernadoodles tend to live longer than larger Bernedoodles.

Do Bernedoodles like to swim?

In most cases, YES! Bernedoodles like to play in the water, and they love swimming. They inherit their likeliness to water from their parents. Poodles love to play in the water, while the Bernese Mountain Dog may have some hesitations about the wet stuff. Bernedoodles that inherit the water-loving traits from their Poodle parent will love swimming and, when Bernedoodles are introduced to water during their early life, they are more apt to becoming water lovers.

How to groom a Bernedoodle?

Bernadoodles shed minimally as the fur they shed accumulates underneath the top layer of their coat into their undercoat. The trapped loose hair can tangle with healthy hair and make mats if not properly brushed and groomed regularly. Visit a professional groomer once every three months and groom your Bernedoodle at home (at least three times a week) in between grooming appointments to prevent matting. Start grooming with a full-body stroke, inspect for any knots, then comb their hair using a steel comb with long pins. Again notice the areas with tangled hair. Try line brushing with a slicker brush to get rid of the tangles. If the matted area is so messy that you cannot repair it by line brushing, don’t pull hard as it can hurt your Bernedoodle. Try to remove it with grooming scissors instead. Keep their eyesight clear by trimming excess hair around their eyes. Keep the ears cleaned and keep their nails trimmed. Do not bathe them too often. Giving a bath once every three months is sufficient.

Are Bernedoodles good dogs?

Yes., Bernedoodles are designed to be companion dogs. They have a friendly temperament. and are goofy, playful giants. They are also clever and, loyal, making them excellent family and therapy dogs.

I have had nothing other than an AMAZING experience with The Doodle Tribe! My puppy is an absolute doll and I couldn’t be happier. I had to wait for a littler, but it wasn’t long, and well worth every minute. When waiting for your puppy they send you videos each week, there is someone there that will answer any questions, that’s a text away. I am considering getting another puppy at some point for sure! If your considering, go for it, you won’t be disappointed!

We found our newest edition Lady; a standard aussiedoodle on Instagram with The Doodle Tribe. Communication was so easy and frequent and the process of bringing her home to California was seamless. She is the best puppy and we love her so much. We would definitely work with The Doodle Tribe again and recommend them to friends and family…Thank you for such a great pup- The Lawson’s

We are very happy with our sweet puppy. I was nervous and anxious regarding purchasing him due to so many scams, but Doodle Tribe was honest and answered all our questions we had thru the process. Sweet little Teddy (we changed his name, he and our grandkids love it) has settled in and is right at home! We could not be happier and would highly recommend everyone get a doodle!!

From start to finish, The Doodle Tribe demonstrated professionalism, expertise, and genuine care for their dogs.First and foremost, the health and well-being of their dogs were clearly a top priority for The Doodle Tribe.

They took the time to answer all of my questions about the breed, the puppy's lineage, and the care requirements.

We picked up our pup on New Year’s Day. From the moment I saw her “baby” picture I knew I wanted her. Having never gone through a breeder, I was more than pleasantly surprised at the professionalism of The Doodle Tribe. They answered all my questions and gave me the definite confidence I had chosen the right breeder. They kept me updated with pictures as she grew and my excitement increased. Without hesitation I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a doodle. Their pups are beautiful and healthy. Thank ever so much for my sweet Raven.

We had a great experience with Doodle Tribe in the recent adoption of our beautiful new Bernadoodle. Their website is informative and the team is very responsive to inquiries and sharing detailed information about their breeds that they offer around temperament, activity levels, and health of their puppies. They have a very good caretaker program as well as our puppy came to us up to date on immunizations, socialized, confident, and friendly.

We made an appointment to see 2 AMD puppies. We got to play and hold the puppies without any pressure or time limits. We did choose a puppy who was very calm and friendly, not to mention super cute with one blue eye. He has been perfect with us at home and he loves to snuggle.

I had consistent communication with The Doodle Tribe after placing a deposit for an f1 Bernedoodle in Arizona. We brought him home at 8 weeks and he is such a good dog. I appreciated the pictures and videos of our little guy, Bear, before he was old enough to be picked up and taken home. The process was smooth and flawless. I'd highly recommend!

I got a newfypoo and I must say that he’s the best puppy I have ever had. Aside from being happy and healthy I would say the breeder did their due diligence to socialize, desensitize, and probably some crate training. Our pup is taking very well to the different scenarios that come his way! A cash option would be nice, I really hate giving money to venmo, credit cards, etc.

We adopted a standard aussiedoodle puppy from the doodle tribe about 3 weeks ago- right before Christmas- and we couldn’t be happier! Maycie our contact at the doodle tribe was very responsive and helpful. We got exactly what we wanted without having to wait forever like some Adoption places too.Our pup did struggle a bit with diarrhea and is still working on potty training, but I’ve read it can take 6mo. for a dog to be fully potty trained. I also would have appreciated a little more health information before picking her up. But otherwise her temperament has been so good with our two young kids (4 & 2). She also loves our other 8yr old Aussie! We also live in Utah and she loves the snow haha! She’s such a sweetheart & her coat is so cute (tri-blue merle) would definitely recommend the doodle tribe, just be sure to ask for all the health info before hand!(:

A wonderful experience working with Maycie and the Doodle Tribe to find Dasher. I initially thought this Aussiedoodle pup was too good to be true due to how pretty he was in photos. I was hesitant and skeptical of online breeder advertising due to so many scams…especially at Christmas.The Doodle Tribe is indeed a top notch legitimate breeder service that is highly responsive. Maycie guided us through every step from reserving Dasher, answering questions, sending photos/video whenever requested all the way to perfect directions for Gotcha Day!Our grandchildren received Dasher on Christmas Day, a memory that will last a lifetime. He is their first family dog and everyone is in love with his intelligence and personality! Thank you for providing an amazing service and ensuring the breed standards are up to par. We are forever grateful to have found you!!

The Doodle Tribe has been amazing to adopt our bernedoodle from, from start to finish! They genuinely love the pups, and that is apparent in every aspect of how they operate. Our girl is the sweetest, most well-rounded dog, and our veterinarian said she’s in great health! I’d like to give a special shoutout to Maycie, Doodle Tribe’s adoption specialist, who is extremely friendly, responsive, and helpful! I 10/10 recommend The Doodle Tribe and would absolutely adopt from them again!

Our Bernedoodle came to us so well adjusted! From day one, she has been relaxed in the car and crate. She loves cuddling, but is good at finding a quiet place to rest when ready for a break. Best of all, she doesn’t make a sound at night. We may add another dog to our family and will definitely look to The Doodle Tribe when we are ready.

Very please and would highly recommend The Doodle Tribe for your next addition to your family. I adopted Freya in July. Maycie made the process very simple and no hassle. Everything was handled online, emil, and text. Very simple and worry free. I do plan on going back and getting Freya a brother in about 6 months and Freya is well trained. What a smart dog she is. I am really impressed with how easy it has been to train her.

We are in love with our mini Aussiedoodle, Rosie!! We drove from Southern CA to pick up our puppy from The Doodle Tribe and we were very happy with that decision. Not only did Maycie keep us updated with videos and photos of our puppy before our Gotcha Day, but she gave us pointers and tips on how best to keep her healthy and cuddly. Rosie was healthy and happy when we picked her up, and we absolutely love her disposition! She easily became the next member of our family, and we look forward to training her to be an amazing therapy dog.
