The Miniature Bernedoodle is a beautiful crossbreed between the Miniature Poodle and the Bernese Mountain dog, both originated from France and Switzerland respectively. One look at this breed and you may think it was bred for its striking physical appearance; contrary to this, the Mini Bernedoodle was actually bred for its low shedding capability as this makes it a tad hypoallergenic and suitable for dog lovers with allergies. They are very intelligent, playful, affectionate and a bit shy.
- A first generation, known as F1 is a purebred Bernese Mountain Dog cross bred with a Miniature Poodle.
- The second generation, known as F1B is an F1 cross bred with a Miniature Poodle.
- The third generation, known as F2, is when a puppy has two Mini Bernadoodle parents.
Appearance and Grooming
These puppies have a low to non-shedding coat that makes them an ideal breed for people with allergies. Its coat that comes in various mixes of black, white and brown, is similar to its parent the Bernese Mountain Dog which, is generally straight to wavy and requires regular maintainence to avoid tangles and knots. Its teeth need to be brushed once per week and its nails trimmed once per month. Shedding is minimal for the most part.
The Miniature Bernedoodle tends to be more active than the larger Bernedoodle breeds due to the toy or miniature poodle being more of an active breed. Its highly-affectionate and loving personality makes it a less suitable guard dog as it becomes friends with every stranger.
Family and Companionship
This is an ideal dog for anyone that is looking for companionship as it suits everyone. They are extremely child friendly and do very well with other family pets. Though they are happy at home they exhibit shyness, so regular socialization and exercise is encouraged.
When your puppy gets to be fully grown it will need at least an hour of exercise every day. This is best divided between walks and play. Because of its long and thick coat it is very easy for these dogs to become quickly overheated. When temperatures are warm, be sure to find a cool shaded place to exercise your pup. If you want to take your puppy hiking or swimming, it will gladly join you. After all, it has a mountain dog as a parent, so it will feel at ease exploring the outdoors together with its owner.
Training and Socialization
Both the Bernese Mountain Dog and the Poodle are two very clever dog breeds. So, you can expect for the Mini Bernedoodle to be just as intelligent as its parents making training a simple process. Keep in mind that your puppy can also exhibit a strong willed and stubborn persona, so patience is expected. Starting socialization and consistent training at an early age will ensure a well-mannered and educated companion.

We were nervous to buy a pup online, but our experience was fantastic. Premier Pups answered the phone every time I called both before and after her flight. Rosie contracted a little cough after her flight and PP responded promptly to my concerns and had already sent her all meds needed. When I took her to the vet, she got a clean bill of health and our vet was impressed with the dewormers that were sent. Rosie was obviously well socialized before we got her. She does not frighten easily around my children, slept in her crate from the first night with no problems, goes everywhere with us and is just a super sweet, healthy pup. When we are ready for another dog, we will use Premier Pups again.
I was super scared to order a puppy online but it was the best decision I have ever made! Callie is healthy, smart, and full of love. Premier pups was amazing throughout the entire process and made sure to reassure me when it was overwhelming. I love Callie can't imagine life without her, thank you premier pups!
We’ve had a fantastic experience with Premier thus far, and our little bernedoodle Doug couldn’t be better!
Izzy has been a treat since the day we picked her up at the Airport in Charlotte, NC. She is a Pettite Mini Bernedoodle born 11/18/2019 and she is the perfect size. She is very social and loves meeting other dogs of any size. She is 9 moths old and weighs about 14lbs.
My grandson and I love our mini bernedoodle, Waffles. She’s fun, energetic and snuggly! We’re looking forward to start training her. Premier Pups has been very helpful with her transition to our home.
Sage is the best dog we have ever had in our 45 year marriage. She is smart, loving, playful and very entertaining. She loves to learn new tricks. We understand why they call them goofy. She is so fun to watch. She is a wonderful addition to our family. We are so happy we chose her.
Sadie is my best buddy!! Premier Pups took great care getting Sadie to me! Sadie is loving, smart, caring, joyful and the best four legged friend anyone could ever have!! Some day I would like to get a partner for Sadie and Premier Pups is where I will get him!! I call Sadie my comfort dog! She can sense when you are feeling a little low. She will weasel her way on to your lap where you cannot fight the urge to wrap your arms around her and hug it out!! Premier Pups you are NUMBER 1 in my book!!
I knew I wanted a mini Berne Doodle, with a Google search came his picture from Premier Pups, it was love at first sight. We called to get information and Troy was very helpful in answering all our questions. Immediately we felt comfortable with Premier Pups and a few days later we picked up our Bernie and he is a happy, healthy, friendly puppy. The staff updated us on his care and vaccinations and provided the needed supplies for the trip home. We love our little Bernie and appreciate the attention and service provided by Premier Pups.

This was love at first sight! The experience has been wonderful. Her Vet was impressed with the paperwork and the care and condition of Charlee. She is a sweet (and a little crazy) puppy. She plays hard and she sleeps well! I have wanted a puppy for quite some time. Charlee was worth the wait. My Grandchildren keep thanking me for getting THEM a puppy! This little girl is loved by all. Thank you Premier Pups...I have highly recommended you to anyone who asks, and they all ask!
