Bernedoodle Varities

F1- first generation Goldendoodle, cross between a full-blooded Bernese Mountain Dog and a full bloosed Poodle, 50-50 cross (more hybrid vigor, meaning puppies are generally larger and healtheir than their parents

F1b- Back cross Bernedoodle, generally a cross between an F1 Bernedoodle and a full-blooded Poodle, but can be an F1 Bernedoodle crossed back with a Berner. The F1 and Poodle tend to be the most popular since they are more hypoallergenic and have less shedding, still has some hybrid vigor. It can be harder to produce tri-colors. 

F2- F1b bred to an F1b (once you start breeding the multi-generations you lose all consistency of litters, some may look more like Berners, while some look more like Poodles, tend to lose more of their hybrid vigor

Multi-Gene- F2s and higher bred together (once again, you lose a lot of your consistency, still a beautilful dog, but have several different looks in a litter

Bernedoodle Colors & Coats

Bernedoodles can come in a variety of coat colors. I have produced tri-color and black and white puppies thus far, but sable and white, sable tri-color, merle, solid black and other colors are also available. Traditional tri-color is the most popluar and hardest to produce, which is why they are the most expensive.

Coats can be wavy or curly. Our F1s tend to have a wavy, fluffy coat. Bernedoodles should be brushed weekly and bathed once every 1-2 weeks. Professional groomers may be required to keep the hair trimmed and managable. The longer their hair, the more brushing they will need to help keep matts out.

Shedding is minimal. F1bs tend to have curlier coats and less shedding.
