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.

Florida is one of the most popular places to raise a Bernedoodle puppy. But finding Bernedoodle breeders is highly 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.

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

Know More About Finding Bernedoodle Puppies in Florida

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.

Some think a Bernedoodle is a cross between a Saint Bernard or a Border Collie, but that is not the case. The Bernedoodle was first bred in Canada in 2003 by Sherry Rupke. Since then, breeding lines have been refined for temperament, non-shedding and sweet nature.

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.

Why Should Florida Trust Central Illinois Doodles?

Bernedoodle Puppies in 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 hair, wavy or curly. 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 the breeder)!

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

Typically, Bernedoodles are 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 first generation)
  • 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 probably the smallest variant of the Bernedoodle. It can reach 8 to 10 inches and weigh less than 10 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 10 to 15 inches tall and their weight can range from 10 to 30 pounds. A Mini Bernedoodle is from breeding a Toy Poodle or Miniature Poodle with a Bernese Mountain Dog.

Standard Bernedoodles: The Standard Bernedoodle ranges from 15 to 29 inches tall while weighing 50 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.
