When you have beautiful champion line Standard Poodles and European champion Bernese Mountain Dogs, why would anybody want to mix what's already very good. Great question!! We did ponder on this for quite some time and thought the same thing, but the more we have learned how incredible these two dog breeds are, the more we wanted to get the best of both into one dog....the bernedoodle. Our Premier Bernedoodles are intelligent, have silky and curly low to non-shedding coats, fun loving temperament, crave attention, loyal, and a perfect complement to your famly. They truly are a great family member that will be healthy and long-lived. With all this said, we still love the Standard Poodle and Bernese Mountain Dog and both are exceptional breeds in their own right. We just wanted to get the best of both into one!
