Bernese Mountain Dogs:
I have a deep appreciation for the Berner’s placid,
easygoing nature and extreme loyalty. They are completely dedicated to their
families with special fondness for children.
Berners are exceptionally beautiful dogs with distinctive
tri-colored coats. Bred in the Swiss Alps as farm dogs that pulled carts and
drove cattle to market, the Bernese thrives in cold weather and has a double
coat that sheds quite heavily in spring.
The Bernerdoodle is a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog
and a Poodle. This Hybrid blends the clever goofiness of the Poodle with the
placid loyalty of the Bernese. What’s more, the Bernerdoodle is low to
non-shedding and is a safe bet for most people with allergies.
- Next to the pure bred Bernese Mountain Dog the Bernerdoodle
is the perfect companion dog for the outdoors enthusiasts. Although many are
stunning, they are not bred for the show ring. They are meant to be at your
side no matter whether you are hiking, snowshoeing or lying on the couch
watching TV. Their only job is to be your best friend!
- No two Bernerdoodles
are identical. The genes from the parent breeds meld in unique ways and its
endlessly fascinating to see what each litter produces. That said, prospective
owners must understand that there can be a lot of variation in a hybrid litter
and must choose a breeder who can help them match the best dog for their
- Crossing purebred
dogs of different breeds results in puppies that are healthier than either of
their parents. This is because the two breeds are generally prone to different
genetic problems. Hybrids such as the bernerdoodle are only likely to inherit a
health problem that is common to both the poodle and the Bernese – two breeds
that share few common diseases. Bernerdoodles therefore have what is referred
to as “Hybrid Vigor” and can be expected to live healthier, longer lives than
their purebred parents, which means more time for the family with their pet.
