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 South Dakota?

South Dakota is a great state for traveling with your dog and has strong animal welfare laws. Though it has some room to grow, South Dakota ranks pretty well for dog-friendliness.


We evaluated two major studies to understand how each state accommodates pets. Both studies surveyed all 50 states and ranked them for pet-friendly factors like access to pet care and services, animal cruelty laws, dog parks, outdoor spaces, and more. 


The first was conducted by an animal welfare group called Pawsafe. Pawsafe ranked South Dakota as the 23rd most pet-friendly state. In this study, the state scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The second study comes from a safety review site called Safewise. They had a harsher view of South Dakota and ranked the state as 38th most pet-friendly in the country. 


But if we put these two studies together, South Dakota ranks pretty well in the middle of the pack.

Thirty-two percent of South Dakota residents own a dog. This is below the national dog ownership rate of 40% but still shows that the state loves dogs.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in South Dakota

South Dakota saved 10,836 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 1,824 animals were reported killed over this same period. 


Six out of 23 of the animal shelters within South Dakota are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 77%. This is below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Improving this percentage will go a long way to ranking South Dakota higher compared to other states.
