Do you offer puppy delivery?

Yes! Around 85% of the puppies we raise are delivered. We work with a trusted puppy delivery service called Furry Trails Pet Transport that can deliver your puppy right to your doorstep within days of when you reserve your puppy. We arrange all the details with Furry Trails and you’ll get updates with all the details you’ll need to know. All puppies travel in a special puppy delivery van in individual crates. Our puppy-adopting parents have been very happy with this service.

What is a Mini-Bernedoodle anyway?

Great question! A Mini-Bernedoodle is a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Miniature Poodle. We think they make wonderful pets and our children think so too. They’re small enough to fit into a household easily (without eating up your food budget) but big enough to go hiking or running. They are also very smart and great to train.

What’s the difference between a Bernedoodle and a Mini-Bernedoodle?

A standard Bernedoodle is a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a standard-size Poodle. These normally weigh in around 80-90 lbs. full grown. A Mini-Bernedoodle is a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Miniature Poodle. They weigh around 25-40 lbs. full-grown. We think a Mini-Bernedoodle is the way to go as they are the perfect size for a great family pet.

Where are you located?

We are located in northeast Ohio (Holmes County) about halfway between Cleveland and Columbus. We’re about 60 miles to the Cleveland Hopkins airport and about 85 miles to the Columbus International airport. We would love to have you come visit and see our puppies! Just contact us to schedule a time.

What Is The Difference Between F1, F1B, F2, and Micro, Mini-Bernedoodles

  • F1 Mini-Bernedoodle (First Generation):
    • An F1 Bernedoodle is the first generation cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Miniature Poodle.
    • This cross results in a dog that is 50% Bernese Mountain Dog and 50% Miniature Poodle.
  • F1B Mini-Bernedoodle (First Generation Backcross):
    • An F1B Bernedoodle is a backcross between an F1 Mini-Bernedoodle and a Miniature Poodle.
    • The “B” in F1B stands for backcross. This breeding is done to enhance certain traits such as hypoallergenic coat qualities.
    • F1B Bernedoodles are typically 75% Poodle and 25% Bernese Mountain Dog.
  • F2 Bernedoodle (Second Generation):
    • An F2 Bernedoodle is the result of breeding two F1 Bernedoodles together.
    • In terms of genetic makeup, an F2 Bernedoodle is 50% Bernese Mountain Dog and 50% Poodle, similar to the F1 generation.
  • Micro Mini-Bernedoodle:
    • The term “Micro Mini-Bernedoodle” refers to a smaller size variant within the Bernedoodle breed.
    • Although the size of a Micro Mini-Bernedoodle can vary, they are usually between 20-25 pounds.
    • Micro Mini-Bernedoodle puppies are a cross between an F1 Mini-Bernedoodle and a Toy Poodle.

How Big Do Mini-Bernedoodles Get?

Miniature Bernedoodles, typically range in size depending on various factors such as genetics, diet, and exercise. Typically, they weigh between 25 to 49 pounds and stand around 18 to 22 inches tall at the shoulder when fully grown. Most puppies raised by us at The Bernedoodles are between 30 to 40 pounds, however, there can be some variation within this range.

Are Mini Bernedoodles Hypoallergenic?

Yes! Mini-Bernedoodles are considered a hypoallergenic breed, however, it is important to remember that no dog breed is entirely hypoallergenic. Many people have found Mini-Bernedoodles to be a great option for those who suffer from dog-related allergies. It is important to understand that levels of allergenicity can vary between individuals. Regular grooming and cleaning can also help reduce allergen levels.

What Is the Mini-Bernedoodles Temperament?

Mini-Bernedoodles are known for their affectionate, friendly, and intelligent temperament. They often inherit the desirable traits of both parent breeds, the Bernese Mountain Dog and the Miniature Poodle. They tend to be playful and energetic, making them great companions for families and individuals. Mini Bernedoodles are typically eager to please, which makes them relatively easy to train. They are gentle and good-natured, getting along well with children and other pets. Early socialization and consistent training are essential to help shape their behavior and ensure they grow into well-rounded dogs.

Do Mini-Bernedoodles Shed?

Mini-Bernedoodles generally shed very little due to the genetics passed down to them by their poodle parent. Regular grooming, including brushing and trimming, can minimize shedding and keep their coat healthy and manageable.
