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.
This is wrigley born 12/1/2019 (aka Henry). He arrived via plane to our home the beginning of February prior to Covid (thank goodness!).. Wrigley is a F1B mini bernedoodle. He is almost 8 months now and has grown from 6.5 pounds to 20 pounds. He is twice the size of our previous dog a maltipoo. We were concerned about size but totally love his size! He is tall and love hoe he flops on the floor with his feet hanging out the back! This breed is so smart as his trainer has pointed out in his puppy school - he learns so fast! We are dealing with separation anxiety because he has had everyone at home during Covid but we will get through this! He does like to explore everything and that means don't leave small items on the floor. He is finally learning leave it command but now he just takes things like shoes to get our attention. A fabulous breed for families and I can see that he will be perfect for us because we are aging as well - wants to be with us and cuddling is priceless! No smells no shedding and coat is easy to care for....only have to bathe every 3-4 months. Oh...and he loves to watch his Chicago cubs and howls when he heats the crack of the bat and actively watches the games. Thank you premier pups for a fabulous experience choosing our new family member!
We purchased our Lilly in March of 2020. She is the absolute best dog ever. It was so easy to potty train her and I am amazed at how smart she is. She is very social and loves to play with other dogs. Lots of energy so she needs lots of walks and playtime. Loves the swim!!! We had a great experience with premier pups and the travel process. We are even looking at getting a second dog in the future.
My fiance and I have been looking for a dog for four months. We stumbled upon the Premier Pups website by accident, and it has changed our lives forever. We found our future family member and within a week had placed the deposit and picked him up from our local airport! We are so amazed how easy the process was and how supportive and helpful the staff at Premier Pups have been. Talk about peace of mind! Our little peanut has adjusted beautifully to our new life together. We cannot say enough amazing things about this program, the support they offer, and the excitement we have felt over the past 5 days!
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!!
Hi, My name is Miles, formally known as Julius. First meeting Miles, it was love at first sight. As soon as I picked him up from the airport, as he came out of his carrier I swear he hugged me as if he knew I was there to love him with all my heart. Miles has been very easy to train. I live in a condo so for him to pick up potty training so easily was a blessing. He knows sit, stay, lay down, leave it, take it and he can shake with whatever paw you point at. Miles is an amazing family dog and loves to play with kids. Socializing him with other dogs was very easy as well. Even as a puppy he is still very lazy and can get rid of energy very quickly. His favorite thing to do is stop at benches and watch the people around him. He doesn't bark at other dogs that bark at him, he just kind of looks at them like they're being dumb. He does have some separation anxiety in the very beginning and still gets upset when I leave. He isn't alone for long, so if you do have a lifestyle that requires you to leave them in a kennel for an extended amount of time, mini bernedoodles might not be a good choice. Premier puppy is definitely the right place to go through. Not only did they send the proper medication he needed for his transition but they also called up to 3 days later making sure that Miles was the right fit. I will always reccomend Premier puppy for your next family member!
<p>To be honest I am not sure how we came across Premier Pups, but it was the best thing that ever happened to us. Upon seeing Beau's (formally Leo) little face we knew he was the one for our family. After witnessing a family member have a bad experience elsewhere, we were extremely skeptical about adopting a puppy (one that we had never met) online. Throughout the entire process, pre - during - and post adoption, the staff at Premier Pups truly gave us the premier experience. My favorite part was their eagerness and grace in answering all of our calls and texts. Requesting photos, videos and updates was easy and there was always a quick turn-around. Post adoption we were shocked at how amazing they were as well. It was very clear to us that this was not just a transaction to them. Becoming a parent is hard, but Premier Pups made this so easy and allowed us to just focus on giving Beau as much love and care as we possibly can. As far as Beau goes, he is great. He has adapated quickly to his new home and we know that it is due to Premier Pups expertise and care. John, Lacey, Roger and EVERYONE at Preimer Pups - thank you. We are excited to have many referred Preimer Pups friends for Beau in the near future.</p>
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!
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.
