Bernedoodles are born in various color patterns that highly depend on the pattern of their parents. The coat color is usually consistent across Bernedoodle puppies but is also unique in its own way.

One of the most desired Bernedoodle colors is brown – it’s rare, doesn’t fade that much during the dog’s adulthood, and overall gives a Berndoodle an appealing look. Most puppies have black patches around their eyes and ears, or the coat has black tips while the base is sable or rich in chocolate color.

Being the affectionate and playful canines they are, brown Bernedoodles are of an intelligent nature and make wonderful family pets.

Let’s explore further this delightful variation of the popular Bernedoodle breed.

What’s So Special About Brown Bernedoodle Puppies?

First of all, their curly chocolate coat is silky and soft when brushed daily. Brown Bernedoodles of the first generation (F1) do not shed much compared to other dogs and are therefore known as allergy-friendly canines.

Brown Bernedoodle puppies closely resemble Bernese Mountain Dogs. But being the mini version of their parents and holding Poodle genes, they often have silver or white markings.

Doodles are often friendly, sociable, and eager to please. They will love to meet your guests and play with kids in the yard. Although they might not need a lot of space in your home, they require daily exercise. One such activity can be training. You will be surprised to see how responsive Bernedoodles are. And if you want to sacrifice a bit of brown shade, consider an F1b Bernedoodle that has about 75% Poodle genes and has a 75% more intelligent and trainable canine.

Bernedoodle Puppies Variations: Brown Shades

There are a few Bernedoodle variations you can adopt if you want your pet to have a deep chocolate or golden coat.

  • Tri-color: Tri-color Bernedoodles are copies of their parent, the Bernese Mountain Dog. They feature predominantly black fur with white and brown patches.
  • Sable: Sable Bernedoodles have a solid base color of white and brown, along with black markings around the eyes and ears. These puppies are the likeliest to shade so that the visible black tips will turn lighter.
  • Phantom: Phantom Bernedoodle puppies are born black with shades of brown and sometimes white markings.
  • Chocolate: Chocolate Bernedoodle puppies have all shades of brown with beige markings. This variation is the closest to the solid brown Doodle you wish to have. Commonly, F1b Bernedoodles have this pattern when both parents have deep chocolate coats.

Do Brown Bernedoodle Puppies Change Color?

Bernedoodles are one of the canines that have a fading gene. It’s a gene that’s inherited from a Poodle, and it clears coat color during adulthood, at about 6-10 months of age. For example, sable Bernedoodle puppies have their black tips faded when they mature.

The fading gene is an occurrence that is visible predominantly on black and brown Bernedoodles, so don’t be scared to see your puppy’s coat clearing after a few months. Black Bernedoodles’ coats fade to silver and gray colors, while brown puppies clear may turn into silver or silver beige tones.

Do Brown Bernedoodle Puppies Differ From Other Bernedoodles?

It’s uncommon to see different temperaments in Bernedoodles of brown, black, or white colors. All first-generation Bernedoodles gain the intelligence of a Poodle and the charm of a Bernese Mountain Dog. So not only do Bernedoodle puppies turn out to be easy to train and quick learners, but they are also super friendly and sociable around people.

The color of the coat also has no effect on the health of your puppy. In fact, at Central Illinois Doodles, we match purebred parents who are perfectly healthy in order to minimize the risks of puppies developing any genetic health problems.
