Bernedoodle Characteristics

Bernedoodles are incredibly fun, joyful companions. They are extremely affectionate and come with goofy, lovable personalities. Bernedoodles are a mixed dog breed of the Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle. The breed grows to a large size and their coats can vary between a wide range of colors. Bernedoodles are smart like their Poodle parents and love staying active.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Responsive

Bernedoodles bring a wonderful mix of characteristics from their parents. They have the intelligence and low shedding of a Poodle and the loyal, relaxed personality of the Bernese Mountain Dog. 

Their hair may be straight like their Bernese parent or curly like their Poodle parent. However, Bernedoodles with straighter coats tend to shed more. These dogs are often seen with the Bernese’s trademark tri color coat, but can be found in merle or brown as well.

Their coats are not 100% hypoallergenic like their Poodle ancestors, but they are still a viable option for people who are more sensitive to dog allergens.

Bernedoodles love to run around outdoors and even serve as shelter or rescue dogs. They have an affectionate and playful nature and are gentle with children, making them excellent family dogs. Bernedoodles like to be goofy and love getting their human’s attention. 

While they love their families, Bernedoodles can be timid at first and may be skittish around strangers, due to their heightened Poodle senses. Like other breeds, you’ll want to socialize your Bernedoodle puppy early so that it will be comfortable around new people.

Bernedoodles can be a large breed, but their size depends on what size Poodle parent they had. They can range from 9 to 14 inches.

Bernedoodles can weigh between 70 and 90 pounds. The breed is generally healthy and enjoys a typical lifespan of 12 to 18 happy years.

How dog-friendly is Alabama?

Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon! 

 

Here’s what you should know about Alabama.

 

Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.

 

Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.

Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?

Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.

Birmingham

Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama

BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.

 

Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 

 

What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama

Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period. 

Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
