The bernedoodle is a cross between a Bernese mountain dog and a poodle. This hybrid blends the clever goofiness of the poodle with the placid loyalty of the Bernese. What's more, the bernedoodle is low- to non-shedding, and is a safe bet for most people with allergies.
No two bernedoodles are alike. The genes from the parent breeds combine in unique ways. This is considered a hybrid litter and the variations are endless. A hybrid dog combines the traits and characteristics of its purebred parents and with conscientious breeding the puppies will have the best attributes of each. They tend to have the sweetness and loyalty of the Bernese and intelligence and resilience of the poodle. They are gentle around children and the elderly and because they love to have a purpose they tend to be good therapy dogs.
