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 have had Denali and Ariya (aka Dream) about 2 weeks now. They are healthy energetic little pups. Have had no health issues and their first vet visit gave them a perfect bill of health. Premiere pups communicates very well along every step of the adoption. I was hesitant at first, but would highly recommend premiere pups. I wish we could have picked our two up in Ohio, but they were crated well and arrived in PHX on time.
She is family, she has two kids and two cats to keep her busy. She is very affectionate and loves attention and snuggles. We call her our little dust mop. The first night we brought her home, she did not even whine at night in her kennel. She slept through the night perfectly and continues to do so. Shes a healthy happy girl. She makes me laugh all the time from her cute looks to her quirky personality. Very smart breed
Dillon is our Bernedoodle and we have never had such a great pup. We are very grateful to Premier Pups for this wonderful one year old!!!
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.
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.
After 10 years of our cockapoo Fozzie Bear being an only fur-child, we decided it was time to start the hunt to find her a little sister! We fell in love with the breed of mini bernedoodles and started our search for our new puppy! After a few dead ends and lots of frustration, we stumbled across premier pups. Our extensive research as well as a couple of conversations with prior customers, validated that this was the place for us. As soon as we expressed interest in yogi, then known as bombay, premier pups was incredibly responsive in giving us a comprehensive understanding about the process, the puppy and more. Any time we had a question, and trust us - we had lots, they were so kind and helpful and made sure we were fully in the know. When it came time to have her transported to us, they did so with care, and she arrived safely and healthy. After her arrival, they checked in on us many times to make sure she was doing well! We cannot recommend them enough. Thank you premier pups!!!
Coco is such a love and wonderful addition to our family. Loves the beach, making friends, walks, kisses and just hanging out........premier pups are the best! Thank you ??????
We could not be happier with our Premier Pups experience! Their communication throughout the puppy picking process was attentive and detailed. We chose to have our little Howie arrive by Premier Pup's transportation, which we were hesitant about. We were kept informed every step of the way of Howie's trip to us. He arrived in a spotless van, crates were clean, newspapers on the bottom of the crates were clean, no odor, nothing. Howie arrived with his own package. He was scanned and his package was barcoded and scanned to ensure we received the right meds and food. Detailed instructions were included with meds. The followed up with us a few times to see if we had any questions. I also called them to ask a question and they were so helpful. Howie is now a happy, healthy one year old pup. He has a sweet wonderful personality. We are happy to write this review and recommend Premier Pups!
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!!
Bernedette (now Moose) is settling in at home SO well! She’s got a great temperament, is incredibly smart and curious, and is such a lovable pup! She loves burrowing under the penguin blanket and her fluffy daybed. Her favourite toys are her fox and the crinkly sloth :) Working with Premier Pups has been really amazing as a first-time puppy owner. They take the time to ensure your puppy is settling in on day one and three with phone calls and milestones your puppy should be hitting at those points. They’ve also always been incredibly responsive and great to work with!
