The Perfect Poodle Mix

Bernedoodle - The Most Popular Doodle
Ultra Bernedoodle

Bernedoodle is a designer dog breed that was intentionally bred by Sherry Rupke in 2003. It is a cross between the Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle. Both of these breeds are intelligent, adorable, and loyal.

It comes in several sizes, different generations, and lots of colors and patterns. Apart from the fact that Sherry Rupke had done a lot of work in developing this breed, many other breeders are working hard to improve the Bernedoodle line.

At the moment, Namaste Poodles and Doodles from Texas and Rocky Road Doodles from Utah are working in collaboration to develop this breed and they have come up with a new version of Bernedoodle. Named Ultra Bernedoodle, this version has more of the Bernese Mountain dog and less of Poodle.

It is highly expected that Bernedoodle along with some other popular Doodles such as Cavapoo, Goldendoodle, Cockapoo, and Labradoodle may be recognized as a pure breed after some generations, maybe, after 20-30 years.

If you don't already know about their parent breeds, Poodle is a German dog breed and is ranked the 2nd-most intelligent dog breed in the world after Border Collie. While the Bernese Mountain dog is a Swiss dog breed that has an exceptional temperament and extra-ordinary beauty. Both breeds make the best designer dog that cannot be ignored.

What's best about Bernedoodle?

Being a product of two different breeds, it is difficult to predict what traits a Bernedoodle puppy gonna inherit, still, we may list some most common traits of a Bernedodle puppy. Let's find out some best features of Bernedoodle below.

Different sizes and varieties:

Like a Poodle, most of the Doodles come in three major sizes; i.e., Standard, Mini, and Tiny. Likewise, the Bernedoodle also comes in these three sizes, as well as, in several generations and types.

Low-shedding coat:

Although the low-shedding coat cannot be guaranteed because you never know what the puppies are going to inherit from which parent. Still, there are more chances that the Bernedoodle puppy will have a low-shedding coat.

Excellent temperament:

When you get a dog, its temperament is the most important thing you consider. And when it comes to Bernedoodle, this dog has an exceptional temperament. They are good with everyone such as kids, older people, strangers, and other pets.

Ideal therapy dogs:

Their cuddly nature, friendliness, and intelligence make them an ideal therapy dog to be used in disastrous areas, old care centers, and hospitals.

Healthy dog:

One of the benefits of getting a designer dog is that their overall health is good. But the important thing is that you should get a puppy from a reputable breeder to reduce the chances of any genetic health issues.

Easily adjustable:

They are more likely to adjust in all types of homes regardless of size. In fact, we have found out that many Standard Bernedoodles that may grow up to 29 inches are living a happy life in small apartments in metropolitan cities like New York City and LA.

Bottom line:

As per the stats, Mini Bernedoodle is in high demand and it may cost you up to $5000. Along with that, on average, you may need to spend around $1000 for your fur baby's maintenance per year. It is highly recommended to keep an eye on your budget before getting the puppy.

So, whatever dog or puppy you get, make sure you raise it like a real human kid. Your dedication and love will help you raise a well-mannered puppy that becomes an integral part of your family. But the most important thing is to get a puppy from a reputable breeder and not a puppy mill. In fact, if you could find and adopt a dog from a shelter, that would be even more appreciable.
