Bernedoodle Dog, Puppies, Breeders, Size, Nature and Information

The Bernedoodle is a beautiful medium-sized dog that is produced by mating a mountain dog with a poodle.

This combination was first made by crossing together a Bernese dog with a poodle. Swiss Ridge kennels was the first one that actually bred the first Bernedoodle. They had the first dog after repeated enquiries from connoisseurs.

Though these are beautiful and great pets, they are still relatively rare and are only bred on demand.

These are great pets for any kind of a family. The Bernedoodle dog breed is typically a fun loving and caring pet. A sociable and goofy dog, the Bernedoodle is extremely gentle around the kids. They are extremely instinctual and know how to behave with children as well as adults.

Though Bernedoodle puppies are extremely intelligent, they have to be trained right from a tender age. They do not need a lot of activity, so playing for a small time every day is usually ideal. They also love to swim and play, so you can have fun taking them to the park or a lake. They also enjoy a nice and relaxed time with you, so when you are in the mood for a movie, they will just curl up and lie on your feet.

There have been attempts to create a mini Bernedoodle, but sizes vary according to the size of the parent breeds used to produce the offspring. The Bernedoodle dog is usually healthier than their parents. However, they are prone to elbow dysplasia, eye problems, and hip disorders as well. Fortunately, young dogs are not afflicted with these problems. It is only the older dogs that have such health problems.

Bernedoodle breeders attempt to breed out these traits, but it can often be extremely difficult. Some of the other common health problems include a proneness to developing allergies and hot spots on skin that cause problems and cancer. Random breeding of Bernedoodles have caused a lot of health problems to come into the breed over a period of time.

Mini Bernedoodle puppies should not be bought from any inexperienced breeder. Since there is a high probability of the dogs becoming sick, it is important to make sure that the parents are healthy and that the breeders know what they are doing. It is always better to wait for a puppy that is of a higher quality. It is not recommended to buy a dog from breeders that breed a lot of pups for vested interests.
