Generations of Bernedoodles

*At this time we have a litter of F1 and F1b's due in early 2022 but expect to have F1, F1b & Mini Bernedoodles in the Fall of 2022

  • F1 Bernedoodles are a first generation cross where the puppy is 50% Bernese Mountain Dog and 50% Standard Poodle.

  • F1b Bernedoodles are a backcross. Puppies are 25% Bernese and 75% Standard Poodle.

  • F2 Bernedoodles are a second generation cross, which means an F1 Bernedoodle crossed with an F1 Bernedoodle.

F1 Bernedoodles:

The First Generation (F1) Bernedoodle is the result of a Standard Poodle crossed with a Bernese Mountain Dog. These Bernedoodle Puppies are 50% Bernese and 50% Poodle.

F1 Bernedoodles are compatible for most families with MILD allergies. They are very consistent in coat types and generally have very nice plush to wavy coats. Occasionally an F1 breeding will produce a plushier and curlier coat. Most first generation Bernedoodles shed lightly. Some can have moderate shedding. If you are coming from a Bernese Mountain Dog, you will most likely think the F1 Bernedoodles are non-shedding.

F1 Bernedoodles come in many sizes. (Please note these are approximate weights. We do not guarantee weights or heights).


*Approximately 55-80+ pounds

F1b Bernedoodle:

The backcross (F1b) Bernedoodle is produced by crossing an F1 Bernedoodle with a Standard Poodle. F1b Bernedoodles will have a higher success rate for non-shedding and are recommended for families with MODERATE to SEVERE allergies. The F1b Bernedoodle is 75% Standard Poodle which makes this generation one of the MOST Hypo-Allergenic of all the Bernedoodle generations. The F1b Bernedoodles have beautiful loose, wavy to curly plush coats.

Keep in mind that the F1b will not necessarily look like a Standard Poodle or have the temperament of a Standard Poodle. The 75% Standard Poodle in their generation strictly pertains to the non-shedding and Hypo-Allergenic factors.

In ever F1b litter, there will be puppies that have loose wavy coats that look exactly like an F1 Bernedoodle. These puppies are very desirable for families that want a more Bernese-looking Bernedoodle that does not shed.


*Approximately 55-80+ pounds
