Premier Illinois Bernedoodle Breeder

The Sunshine State is a vast, tropical region with sunny skies and warm weather all year. Parks and beaches offer space for a few rounds of fetch or simply to run around the lush gardens.

And with that beautiful environment, Florida is one of the most popular places to raise a Bernedoodle puppy. This adorable designer dog breed created by mixing Bernese Mountain Dogs with Poodles has taken the country by storm, offering a perfect mix of traits derived from these two loving canine breeds.

However, finding reputable Bernedoodle breeders in Florida can be difficult. Florida Bernedoodle puppies and Florida’s breeding program have come a long way but have a reputation for puppy mills and unethical behaviors that aren’t suitable for a health-tested, well-behaved puppy waiting for forever homes.

That is where we come in! Central Illinois Doodles is highly-rated, and we are known across the country as an ethical Bernedoodle breeder. So when looking for the best Bernedoodle breeders in Florida, look no further than us for your next family pet.

What Is A Bernedoodle?

tess bernedoodle puppy 1

A Standard Bernedoodle (also known as a Bernese Mountain Poo, Bernese Mountain Doodle, or a Bernese Poodle) is a designer breed that is a cross between a purebred Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle.

Due to their friendly and calm temperament, as well as loyal personality traits, Bernedoodles make excellent family pets. They are great around children and highly intelligent. Their unique traits allow Bernedoodles to often serve as therapy dogs and make great service dogs. And while Bernedoodles are yet to be officially acknowledged by the American Kennel Club, they are included in numerous other reputable registries. 

However, when looking for healthy Bernedoodle puppies in Florida, it’s essential to find a reputable breeder or ethical breeder. Reputable breeders take the necessary steps to screen the parent dogs for any health issues to minimize the chance of them passing them down to their puppies.

And that is exactly what we pay attention to at Central Illinois Doodles. Due to our experience and love of breeding dogs, we are among the Bernedoodle breeders you can trust, providing our Bernedoodle and Goldendoodle puppies with the love and care they need to grow into healthy and well-behaved adult dogs.

How Do We Get Our Bernedoodle Puppies to Florida?

One of the greatest advantages of Central Illinois Puppies is that you don’t have to live in Illinois to purchase your Bernedoodle pup. We want you to enjoy the love of your furry friend no matter where in the US you live. That is why we offer you two puppy transportation options.

First, you can come to us and pick up your puppy personally. That is the best way, both for you and us, as we can get to know each other, and you can see for yourself why so many pup owners choose CID as their Bernedoodle breeder. The fastest way to CID is by plane, and since we’re located near several large airports, you shouldn’t find it overly difficult to get to us.

However, if you can’t come to us personally, which we fully understand given the distance between our Illinois breeding facility and Florida, don’t worry. You can still become a proud dog owner of one of our available Bernedoodle puppies.

How? Simple. If you don’t come to us, we will come to you as part of the reservation process for your beautiful Bernedoodle puppies! Our family continually updates your reserved puppy’s progress, and when it’s time for your four-legged friend to join the household, we can safely and securely fly it to you with a certified pet nanny.

Bernedoodle Puppies Florida FAQs

Like most Doodle dogs, Bernedoodles resemble either parent and can inherit the coat type of the Poodle, the Bernese, or a combination of the two.

Regarding coat texture, Bernedoodles range from straight, wavy, or curly hair. With Poodle mixed breed dogs, it’s impossible to predict their coats and colors before they are born, so it’s always a surprise (even to a quality breeder like ourselves)!

Bernedoodle puppies can inherit coloring from the Poodle and be black and white, black and brown, and even spotted.

Typically, Bernedoodles are low to non-shedding, but breeders can’t predict whether their puppies will shed or not. However, most Poodle mix dogs tend not to shed. If you have allergies, there is still a chance you could be allergic to a Bernedoodle. However, that doesn’t mean that a Bernedoodle will be fully-hypoallergenic…

There are a few different types of Bernedoodle puppies:

  • F1 Bernedoodle dogs: A Bernese bred with a Poodle (also known as the first-generation breed)
  • F1B Bernedoodle dogs: A Bernedoodle bred with a Poodle
  • F2 Bernedoodle dogs: Two F1 Bernedoodles bred together
  • F2B Bernedoodle dogs: An F1 and an F1B Bernedoodle bred together

If you need a non-shedding dog because of allergies, you’re more likely to have better luck with an F1B Bernedoodle since they are 75% Poodle. But again, there is no guarantee they won’t shed.

The perfect Bernedoodle can come in three different sizes determined by the dog parents used for breeding:

Micro/Toy Bernedoodles: The Toy Bernedoodle is the smallest variant of the Bernedoodle. It can reach 10 to 14 inches and weigh less than 12-25 pounds. Tiny Bernedoodles are challenging to breed. Often, Mini Bernedoodles are bred with Toy Poodles to make this hybrid.

Mini Bernedoodle Puppies: Mini Bernedoodles are 15 to 20 inches tall, and their weight can range from 25 to 50 pounds. A Mini Bernedoodle is from breeding a Miniature Poodle with a Bernese Mountain Dog.

Standard Bernedoodles: The Standard Bernedoodle ranges from 22 to 29 inches tall while weighing 75 pounds and above. They are a result of breeding a Standard Poodle with a Bernese Mountain Dog.

When it comes to dog-friendly travel destinations, Florida offers a wide array of beaches and parks, restaurants, activities and tours you can enjoy with the whole family.

Head to Hobie Beach for fun in the sun beach extravaganza! Hobie is a dog-friendly off-leash park located off of the Rickenbacker Causeway heading to Key Biscayne. If you are in the mood for a subdued Miami shopping experience — the shops and restaurants at Bal Harbour, The Village at Merrick Park and Brickell are also open to pets.

Across the Peninsula, the gulf shores of Sarasota, Venice, and Bradenton have a string of beaches that are dog friendly. A must-visit is Sarasota’s restaurant chain, titled appropriately the Old Salty Dog, where you can chow down on seafood and American bar fare with a dog at your feet, feeling the sea breeze through the air.

Here is a map of dog-friendly beaches on Florida’s coastline…

A law was passed in Florida, effective July 1, 2020, which explicitly states what you and your current or prospective housing provider can and cannot do regarding Emotional Service Animals. The law applies to all condos, apartments, and rental homes.

Bernedoodles make great companion dogs for therapy, service or as ESA. 

  • A Florida landlord cannot deny housing for disability or disability-related needs.
  • A Florida landlord cannot ask you to disclose the diagnosis or severity of your disability.
  • No special ESA training is required.
  • No additional pet deposits or monthly fees for ESA dogs.
