 Our goal in producing Bernedoodles is to combine the gorgeous looks and versatile temperament of a Berner with the longevity, intelligence, and low shedding coat of the Poodle! 


The best thing about Bernedoodles is that they are highly human focused and OBSESSED with their families! They are goofy, affectionate dogs who like to be close to their humans. I have to be careful when getting up from a chair or out of bed to ensure I do not step on my bernedoodle, because she is almost always at my feet. Bernedoodles are sweet natured and LOYAL, but true to their guardian Bernese Mountain Dog roots, they do tend towards being protective of their home and can make excellent watch dogs. It is critically important to socialize your bernedoodle to new people both inside your home and out in public places during their socialization period. 


Bernedoodles can also exhibit herding behaviors towards other animals and children as Bernese originally used to drove cattle. Due to the influence of the poodle, and their breed history with bird hunting, they can also have a higher prey drive towards small animals. It's crucial that you start to socialize your bernedoodle with other animals, including cats, while they are young (less than 4 months) so that they can live harmoniously with other animals. 

Although the word "CALM" is often used to describe bernedoodles, when comparing them to other doodle varieties such as goldendoodles, it can be misleading. Bernedoodles are athletic, intelligent, and versatile dogs. They are REAL dogs who require exercise, training, and enrichment in order to thrive in our modern world. It is not reasonable to expect your bernedoodle to lay quietly at your feet all day if you're not fulfilling their most basic needs. Fun activities to enjoy with your bernedoodle include swimming, hiking, and playing fetch. Bernedoodles also enjoying using their brains! They love learning new tricks and can be taught to do agility. 


For those who are new to doodles or just haven't gotten the hang of the verbiage, an F1 Bernedoodle is a first generation cross, resulting in a puppy 50% Berner and 50% Poodle. These pups will  all have furnished wavy coats and will typically be low shedding. 

An F1b is a second generation, a cross between an F1 Bernedoodle and a purebred Poodle. The "b" stands for being bred "back" to one of the parent's breed. The resulting puppies will be 75% Poodle and 25% Berner. These are a great option for people who want a versatile family dog that has the potential to shed even less than an F1! F1bs can have curly or wavy coats. 


F2 pups are a cross between two F1 dogs and will therefore be around 50% Berner and 50% Poodle but can have a lot more variety of coat traits. They can have straight, wavy, or curly coats. They can have fluffy beards (furnished) or smooth (unfurnished) faces. Some F2s will not shed, while others will shed almost as much as a berner, it's all in the coat genetics! We do not plan to produce any F2 litters at this time due to the low demand for unfurnished doodles.


Multigen is the term used for any generation that comes after the ones listed above. Multigen pairings can allow for the breeder to add in more bernese to subsequent generation,  while ensuring pups still have desirable low shedding coats! Producing nice multigen puppies requires a thorough understanding of genetics to produce a consistent phenotype.​ To learn more about bernedoodle coat types, check out the link below!
