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 Minnesota?

Minnesota has some excellent dog-friendly accommodations and services and is well on its way to becoming one of the more pet-friendly states. It’s a great place to own a dog!


We evaluated scores across two primary studies to get accurate state rankings. Both studies ranked states according to various pet-friendly criteria like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and services, and the number of hiking trails and dog parks.


The first study, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Minnesota as 14th most pet-friendly state. This includes a good ranking for its animal welfare laws which evaluate laws against abuse, neglect and fighting.


Safewise, a national safety evaluator, ranked Minnesota as the 26th most pet-friendly state. A little lower than Pawsafe, but still doing pretty well comparatively. 


Combining these two studies together puts Minnesota towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.

Are cities in Minnesota pet-friendly?

The personal finance site Wallethub ran a study to evaluate cities for pet-friendliness. They reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country. Here’s how Minnesota’s biggest cities stack up.

Minneapolis

Minneapolis ranked 28th on the list, scoring 63rd place for pet budget, 25th for pet health and wellness, and 25th for outdoor pet-friendliness. 


A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study reviews the nation’s 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks per capita. Minneapolis ranked 27th on the list at 1.7 dog parks per 100,000 people.

St. Paul

Even though Minneapolis and St. Paul are known as the Twin Cities, they rank differently in terms of pet-friendliness. St. Paul also ranked well, but just a few spots lower than Minneapolis at the 33rd spot for overall pet-friendliness.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Minnesota

BringFido lists Minnesota as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1800 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also lists Minnehaha Park and Minnesota Point as popular dog-friendly attractions in the area.


Thirty-five percent of Minnesota residents own a dog. This is below the national dog ownership rate of 40%, but not a whole lot lower. 


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

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Minnesota

Minnesota saved 52,742 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 3,380 animals were killed over this same period. 


Thirty-two out of 90 of the animal shelters within Minnesota are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is rather low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 83%. This is short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state but is improving.
