One of the big reasons Bernedoodle breeders started creating this breed was to create Bernese Mountain Dogs that were hypoallergenic. Bernese Mountain Dogs on their own aren’t hypoallergenic animals, however, once mixed with Poodle genes they became Bernedoodles which don’t shed much and are mostly hypoallergenic.
The first Bernedoodle breeder was a lady called Sherry Rupke who still breeds Bernedoodles today. Bernedoodles started their journey in life in Ontario, Canada in the early 2000s. However, their parent breeds, the Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle originally come from Switzerland, and Germany and France respectively.
Ask any Bernedoodle breeder, business or company, and they’ll tell you that a Bernedoodle is a hybrid breed or designer dog created from Bernese Mountain Dogs and Poodles. They’re playful and affectionate dogs that enjoy spending time with their human families. They’re also really intelligent due to their Poodle genes.
Your Bernedoodle breeder or business will tell you to brush your Bernedoodle every day, in the direction of its coat growth, and wash your puppy with dog shampoo every 6 to 8 weeks unless it gets dirtier sooner. Brush your puppy’s teeth at least 3 times a week, and clip its nails every 5 weeks.
Ask your Bernedoodle breeder, business or company, and they’ll tell you that Bernedoodles are pretty smart animals due to their Poodle genes. They enjoy training, and are keen to learn new exercises. Start training after the age of 8 weeks, at least once a week, and reinforce good behavior with warm praise and treats.
Bernedoodle breeders and businesses will tell you to take your Bernedoodle out to play and walk for at least 60 minutes a day. This can be divided up into 3 segments of 20 minutes each, 2 segments of 30 minutes, or one long 60 minute walk if you have the time. You should also take your Bernedoodle to the park on weekends to run around and play to exercise its muscles.
