Bernese mountain dogs are popular dogs that are prized for their beautiful appearance as well as their friendly personalities. However, they are very large, and they have a lot of energy thanks to their working dog backgrounds. Some people want the positive traits of Bernese mountain dogs without the downsides that come with owning such a large, energetic dog.
That's where the miniature Bernedoodle comes in. Miniature Bernedoodles are bred by crossing a Bernese mountain dog with a miniature poodle. They're great dogs for apartment-dwellers or anyone else without the inclination to care for a bigger dog. Here are four reasons you should consider purchasing a mini Bernedoodle puppy:
1. They have the same distinctive coat pattern as Bernese mountain dogs.
Like Bernese mountain dogs, miniature Bernedoodles have distinctive tri-color patterns on their coats. Their fur is a beautiful mix of black, tan, and white colors. The classic tri-color look features a mostly black coat with white patches over the chest and muzzle. There can often tan markings over the dog's paws and eyes as well.
2. They may be less likely to cause allergies.
Poodles are great, intelligent dogs that are often sought after for their hypoallergenic qualities. Poodles have fur that is unlike the fur of other dogs; many owners describe it as being more similar to human hair. As a result, people who are allergic to dog fur often find that they're less allergic to poodles than other breeds of dogs. Miniature Bernedoodles have fur that's a similar texture to that of their miniature poodle parents. A miniature Bernedoodle might be the perfect companion for a dog lover who suffers from canine allergies.
3. They are highly intelligent.
Both Bernese mountain dogs and poodles are very smart dogs. When bred together, they create wonderfully intelligent offspring. Miniature Bernedoodles are smart and inquisitive. They're the perfect dog for anyone who plans to teach their dog tricks. Like all intelligent dogs, they can become mischievous if they don't have enough mental stimulation. You can keep your dog happy and out of trouble by playing with them regularly and giving them toys that exercise their mind.
4. They are very friendly.
Miniature Bernedoodles are very friendly, and they're great with kids. However, they may be wary of new people until they get to know them. You can mitigate this trait by making sure your tri-color miniature Bernedoodle is introduced to lots of new people in pleasant situations when they are a puppy.
