At this time we only breed F1 standard size bernedoodles. We LOVE the easy going temperament of the Standard size poodle and believe it creates the most balanced temperaments in doodles compared with the mini and toy sized poodles. We are also adding F1b Bernedoodles to our program 2018. They will maintain the wonderful temperament of the Bernedoodle while adding in a non-shedding coat.
The Bernedoodle is a fun, playful, goofy, and sociable dog. They are a good fit for just about anybody looking for a beautiful, well-balanced, and good natured pet. Most have a laid-back temperament, a moderate energy level, and are known as being very intelligent. They are not considered to be high strung or have an overabundance of energy. They love to play, swim, run, and fetch, but are also a great companion when it comes time to relax.
They require regular brushing, and clipping every few months.
It is well known in all domestic animal breeding that hybrids (50%-50% mixes of two different breeds) will raise the chances of having fewer genetic diseases because all doubling of detrimental effects will stop in the first generation. The genetic term for this is heterosis effect. This effect often gives non-related individuals stronger descendants than inbreeds.
Bernese Mountain Dog Temperament
These cheerful dogs love children. They are very intelligent, easy to train and are natural watchdogs, but not overly dominant. A Bernese Mountain Dog will be your friend for life. Self-confident, alert and good-natured, be sure to socialize well as a puppy. These dogs are slow to mature, acting like puppies longer than other breeds. They are rather friendly with strangers, and are generally good with other pets and dogs. The Bernese needs to be with people and not confined to the backyard or a kennel. These dogs are sensitive and should be trained firmly, but gently.
Standard Poodle Temperament
The Standard Poodle is proud, graceful, noble, good-natured, enjoyable and cheerful. This highly intelligent dog is one of the most trainable breeds. Some can be trained to hunt. The Standard Poodle is generally lower energy and often calmer than the smaller varieties of Poodles, but will become high strung if you do not give it the proper amount and type of exercise. It is sensitive to the tone of one's voice and will not listen if it senses that it is stronger minded than its owner, however it will also not respond well to harsh discipline. Owners need to be calm, yet possess an air of natural authority. It is not the type of dog to live outside in a kennel, as it enjoys being with its owners and dislikes being alone. It is generally friendly toward strangers, and is excellent with children. The Standard Poodle is good with other dogs.
