Gentle and Loving
Mini Bernedoodles typically have personalities that are a combination of their parents' core traits. Generally, however, they’re happy, sociable and affectionate. Even-tempered and gentle, Mini Bernedoodles are great with kids and older adults. They have a low prey drive, which makes them ideal for households with small pets. Apart from being excellent family dogs, Mini Bernedoodles are also suitable as service and companion animals. These adorable dogs can be goofy, their silly antics often making their owners laugh. They are people-pleasers, so when they find something they do that makes their owner smile, expect them to do it again and again! Mini Bernedoodles can have an independent streak but are prone to developing separation anxiety. Fortunately, early socialization and training address these behaviors, resulting in calmer, happier and well-adjusted pups.


Cute, Cuddly and Compact
Although Mini Bernedoodles have huge personalities and big hearts, they range in size from small to midsize. Adults’ height averages between 12 and 22 inches at the shoulder, and they can weigh anywhere between 18 to 45 lbs. Generally, female Mini Bernedoodles are smaller than males. These compact canines have beautiful, lush coats that are either curly, wavy or straight. They come in various colors, from solid shades to tricolor and bicolor. Like other doodles, they are low-shedding, making them ideal for people with fur allergies or sensitivities. However, it is crucial to remember that no dog is entirely hypoallergenic. Mini Bernedoodles have floppy ears, a short muzzle and expressive eyes that can be very hard to say no to. Their looks are often compared to teddy bears, and they don’t grow out of their cuteness. Adult Mini Bernedoodles are just as adorable and cuddly as adults as puppies!


Active and Energetic
Mini Bernedoodles are highly adaptable: they are equally happy spending their days on the couch or exploring the countryside with their owner. However, ensuring your Mini Bernedoodle gets adequate exercise for their physical and mental health is essential. Mini Bernedoodles, despite their laid-back demeanor, are very energetic and playful pups. While they’re a bit too small to serve as working dogs like their Bernese Mountain Dog ancestors, they are more than capable of serving as their owners’ loyal companions, whether for a leisurely stroll in the park or a challenging hike in the great outdoors. Mini Bernedoodles should have at least one hour of exercise per day. This can be broken down into multiple sessions. Walks, scent walks, runs, agility courses and playdates with other dogs are just a few examples of physical activities your Mini Bernedoodle will enjoy.

The Evolution of Miniature Bernedoodle 

The Miniature Bernedoodle has become the most sought-after and beloved companion through the dedication of breeders like Sherry Rupke, who embodies the ideal blend of intelligence, affection, and charm in a smaller, manageable package.

• Origin

The history of Miniature Bernedoodle puppies traces back to the passion and innovation of dog breeder Sherry Rupke.
