 Bernedoodles Vs. Newfypoos

Once you’ve made the decision to get a dog, you get the fun part of deciding what kind of dog you want to get. Bernedoodles and Newfypoos are two very popular doodle mixes that are great options. But how do you decide which one is right for you and your family? Considering the size, temperament, and lifestyle of Bernedoodles vs Newfypoos can make your decision much easier.

Size

Both Bernedoodles and Newfypoos are considered large dogs, but they are fairly different in size. Bernedoodles typically weigh between 70-90 pounds and are 23-29 inches tall. They will reach their full height around 12 months and full weight around 24 months. On the other side, you have Newfypoos, which typically weigh between 90-150 pounds and are 22-30 inches tall. They will reach their full height and weight around 18-24 months. In both breeds, males typically outweigh females. 

Comparing the two, you can see that while they may be of a similar height, the largest Bernedoodles weigh about the same as the smallest Newfypoos! This difference will largely come into play in regards to how much food they eat.

Coat

Bernedoodles and Newfypoos are hypo-allergenic and low-shedding breeds, thanks to their Poodle parent. Most Bernedoodles and Newfypoos also inherit some of the curl of their Poodle parent, with coats commonly varying from curly to wavy. Newfypoos may inherit a thicker, water-repellent coat from the Newfoundland parent, while Bernedoodles tend to have a softer texture to their coat.

If not regularly brushed, Bernedoodles and Newfypoos are both prone to matting, so make sure you can set aside time to brush them every 2-3 days, if not every day. The more active your dog is, the more brushing they will probably need. When brushing a Newfypoo, you should expect to have a decent amount of undercoat shed. Because they are larger breeds, many Bernedoodle and Newfypoo owners turn to professional groomers every 6-8 weeks to help keep their dog well groomed.

Bernedoodles come in a wide range of colors and patterns, including the incredibly popular black/brown/white coat combination. Newfypoos also come in a range of colors and patterns, although they tend to be solid colored or only have two colors.

Temperment

Both Bernedoodles and Newfypoos are great family dogs! They are friendly and loyal, and they love children and other animals. Bernedoodles are a little shyer than Newfypoos, so it is important to make sure they are socialized early on. Newfypoos tend to be a little more stubborn than Bernedoodles, but with proper training as a puppy, this shouldn’t be an issue for you!

Bernedoodles are often described as goofy, intelligent, and playful. They are known for being a low-energy breed that go with the flow, and have a calm, gentle demeanor.  Bernedoodles are very family friendly and easily trainable.  Each Bernedoodle is beautiful both inside and out, and are known for their laid back, gentle personalities. Newfypoos are described as friendly, obedient, and alert. If you won’t have people at home all day, it would be better to go with a Newfypoo than a Bernedoodle, as Bernedoodles can develop separation anxiety when left alone for long periods of time. Neither breed is aggressive, though the size and deeper bark of a Newfypoo often lets them serve as a good guard dog, despite their loving nature.

Lifestyle

As both Bernedoodles and Newfypoos are larger dogs, which means you need to provide adequate space to exercise and play. They do best in homes with fenced backyards where they can run around or play with their owners. 

Bernedoodles are a little more moderate in energy than Newfypoos. Bernedoodles typically require 30 minutes of exercise, 1-3 times a day, while Newfypoos are better off if they get at least 60 minutes of exercise a day. Newfypoos usually inherit a love of water from both their Newfoundland and poodle parent, which makes them great swimmers, while Bernedoodles are a little more hit and miss on swimming. Both breeds love walks and hikes and do well visiting dog parks. 

Make sure you are careful with roughhousing and jumping around when Bernedoodles and Newfypoos are still growing. Because of their larger size, they can accidentally damage their joints and cause problems with their growth if you aren’t careful.

Pros Of Bernedoodles

Bernedoodles are great for families, especially new dog owners. Their loving and gentle nature, when properly socialized, makes them one of the most friendly breeds. They are generally happy as long as they are with their owners, which makes them particularly good companion dogs. Bernedoodles also get along well with other pets, which makes them a great option if you want to get more pets or you already have some. Bernedoodles are also usually very healthy dogs.

Pros Of Newfypoos

The Newfypoo, also sometimes known as a Newfydoodle, is a newer breed, and still fairly uncommon. Unlike their Newfoundland parent, they actually don’t drool very much at all, which is great for people who love large dogs but don’t want to deal with lots of slobber.  They also don’t bark without a purpose, so you won’t have to worry about disturbing your neighbors! If properly trained, they can easily serve as good guard dogs. Newfydoodles are very intelligent and eager to please, which makes them easy to train.
