History of Bernedoodles

The designer Bernedoodle breed is a hybrid dog breed produced by breeding the Bernese Mountain Dog to a Poodle. Even though knowledge and popularity of the Bernese Mountain Dog are less than average, even for dog lovers, these adults are affectionate, loyal, and good-natured which carries into the Bernedoodle pups.

The Bernese Mountain Dog was brought over to Switzerland approximately 2,000 years ago by the Romans. They’ve been bred from Great Mastiffs and other types of guard dog breeds. Aside from having a loving personality, these breeds are only one of the four kinds of Sennenhund-type dogs from the Swiss Alps. These dogs were generally known as farm dogs that worked hard. Eventually, the Bernese Mountain Dog breed mixed with the Poodle breed led to the creation of the incredible Bernedoodle dog breed.

Types of Bernedoodles

During the process of finding Bernedoodle puppies for sale in Illinois from a reputable breeder like Central Illinois Doodles, you’ll come across these Mini Bernedoodle genetic classifications.

  • F1 Bernedoodle breed (First Generation Cross): As a first-generation hybrid cross, you can expect the Bernedoodle to be 50% Bernese Mountain Dog mixed with 50% Poodle. The first generation cross between two purebred dogs is considered the healthiest due to a genetic trait called hybrid vigor. Since the Bernedoodle is a first-generation crossbreed, the likelihood of inheriting a genetic disease is unlikely unless both purebred dogs were carriers.
  • F1b Bernedoodle breed: An F1b is a back cross between an F1 Bernedoodle mixed with a Standard Poodle. That means that the newborn Bernedoodle puppy will be 25% Bernese Mountain Dog mixed with 75% Poodle. Due to the curly hair and non-shedding genes of Poodles, the Bernedoodle is less likely to shed in comparison to an F1 Bernedoodle that is only 50% Poodle. With this combination, the F1B Bernedoodle is also known to be allergy-friendly.

Since Bernedoodles are social animals and love being around people, they’re known to be great cuddlers and snugglers while providing tons of affection. One term that describes Bernedoodles is “velcro dogs” because they can be quite attached to their owners and loved ones. They don’t like being neglected and left alone for extremely long periods.

Hypoallergenic Dogs

If you’re dealing with pet allergies, then a Bernedoodle is another reason for you to bring home as a companion. Since their Poodle breed parents make the Bernedoodles’ coat allergy-friendly, you can expect less shedding when compared to other dogs. When you compare Bernedoodles vs Bernese Mountain Dogs, the Bernedoodles are low to non-shedding due to the wavy curly hair they inherited from the Poodle parent.
