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 Arkansas?

Studies are divided over just how dog-friendly Arkansas is. The state has a long going for it, and a few areas for definite improvement. Let’s explore the two primary studies: one from Pawsafe and one from Safewise.


Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, conducted a study to rank each state according to its pet-friendliness. They evaluated states by several important indicators, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and access to services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.


In their study, Pawsafe ranks Arkansas as the #1 most pet-friendly state! That’s right, number one! The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


However, Safewise, a site that reviews safety across the country, came to a very different conclusion. In their study, Arkansas is ranked as the 37th most pet-friendly state. Not terrible, but certainly not number one.


While the two studies produced contrasting results, assuming Arkansas falls somewhere in the middle of the two still puts the state towards the top of the list. So we consider Arkansas to be pet-friendly overall.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Arkansas

BringFido lists Arkansas as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,500 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also recommends Lake Wilson Park and the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests as fun dog-friendly activities.


Fifty-two percent of Arkansas residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%! 


What kind of dogs do Arkansans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Arkansas are Labradors, Beagles, and German Shepherds. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Boxers, and French Bulldogs. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arkansas

Arkansas saved 38,197 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 6718 animals were killed over this same period. 


Forty-three out of 93 of the animal shelters within Arkansas are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is rather low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 78%. However, this is short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see improvement in years to come.
