The Bernedoodle dog breed is a mix between the hypoallergenic Poodle and the shedding Bernese Mountain dog. But do Bernedoodles shed? Bernedoodles are also called Bernese Mountain Poo. The Bernese Mountain Dog is one of the large dog breeds. It is a working breed.
An adult male Bernese Mountain Dog can weigh as much as 50 kg. They are loving and intelligent. This big dog breed is extremely loyal to its human friends.
The Poodle, on the other hand, is a small companion dog breed that weighs about 5 kg. The breed is also intelligent and Faithful. This dog is alert, easy to train and physically active despite its small size. The Bernese Mountain Dog poodle mix inherits these positive character traits of its parents.
A cross between the Bernese Mountain Dog and the Miniature Poodle creates the mini Bernedoodle. The Tiny Bernedoodle, on the other hand, is a cross between the Toy Poodle and Bernese Mountain Dog. This dog is genetically similar to but physically smaller than the standard Bernedoodle.
The main reason for the Bernese Mountain Dog Poodle mix is to create a medium sized and non-shedding dog breed that is bigger than the Poodle. The dog also retains the guarding and herding instincts of the Bernese Mountain Dog.
