What is a BERNERDOODLE? The Bernedoodle is a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle. This hybrid designer breed blends the clever goofiness of the Poodle with the loyalty and sassiness of the Bernese. By the way, sassiness is really just stubbornness with flair. DOG TRAINING is highly encouraged as you will have an intelligent, hard-working when necessary, loyal, and of course silly dog. The Poodle adds to the hybrid blend its' non-shedding and hypoallergenic characteristics; this is a huge benefit for people with allergies and those who hate vacuuming. Most importantly, Bernedoodles benefit from the hybrid vigor (a more diverse genetic makeup), resulting in a breed with fewer genetic disorders and extended life expectancy.
