F1 Bernedoodle Family Tree

Bernedoodle is a fresh face in the world of designer breeds, and it has found its way right into the hearts of countless American families. What makes them such a sought-after companion? Well, it’s all thanks to their extra lovable parents – a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle.

F1 Bernedoodle are the puppies of a big, friendly Swiss mountain-loving Bernese and a curly-haired, snazzy Poodle. This crossbreed is a match made in doggy heaven – the first-generation fluffy pups that inherit the best traits from both sides of the family.

F1 Bernedoodle Characteristics

F1 Appearance and Color

As the first generation of Bernedoodle, puppies share the characteristics of their parents – the black and brown tan of a Bernese Mountain Dog blended with whatever color the Poodle is. Hence, it’s really hard to predict what color the puppies are going to be born with, but there are a few standard coat shades:

  • Black
  • Brown
  • Black and white
  • Random mix of all colors
  • Tri-color

F1 Coat

Their fur can also be curly, wavy, and straight. The rule of thumb is the straighter their fur is, the more puppies will shed as they grow up. Hence, if you want a hypoallergenic dog, you’d better look for curly Bernedoodles.

However, curly fur doesn’t always mean less grooming, but we’ll discuss that in detail later.

F1 Grooming

Every dog needs grooming, and F1 Bernedoodles aren’t the exception. Despite having curls, they tend to tangle and overlook and look unkept after a few months. Although curly Bernedoodles don’t shed as much, you will need to frequently brush your puppy to prevent matting. And don’t forget to trim those curls once in a few months, especially around the eyes, ears, and paws.

F1 Size

F1 Bernedoodles come in three sizes:

  • Micro mini – up to 17 inches in height and up to 24 pounds in weight
  • Miniature – up to 22 inches in height and up to 55 pounds in weight
  • Standard – up to 2.5 feet tall and up to 100 pounds in weight

F1 Temperament

Mini F1 Bernedoodles adapt effortlessly to any living space, whether it’s a spacious house or a cozy one-room apartment. They’re perfectly content curling up in a corner for a nap or taking a leisurely stroll around your home or yard. However, what truly counts is their daily dose of outdoor activity. When it comes to your F1 Bernedoodle, make sure to let them frolic freely and spice up your walks with some playful exercise.

Bernedoodles are inherently active, and it’s crucial to harness their energy through training and playtime.

In general, F1 Bernedoodles are exceptionally amiable and warm around people. They love socializing and are perpetually thrilled to meet your friends or cuddle up with your kids.

Are F1 Bernedoodle Puppies Hypoallergenic?

Although there are no 100% allergy-friendly dogs, F1 Bernedoodles with curly or wavy coats don’t shed much. Hence, you can say they are one of the most hypoallergenic canines, thanks to their Poodle parent.
