Bernedoodle is an excellent choice when it comes to a companion pup that will always be at your side. But what about their size? If you are looking for a dog within a certain size range, I hope this article will be helpful.

The only exception may be that the smallest Bernedoodles may be more high-energy and more high-maintenance than larger ones. It sounds counter-intuitive, but smaller dogs are always a little more nervous and agitated than larger dogs. So, if you prefer a dog with a more stable, calm demeanor, a larger Bernedoodle may be a better choice for you. You might want to adopt a Standard Bernedoodle or a Mini Bernedoodle. 

The smallest Bernedoodles will be great for someone with limited living area – such as a small apartment. A larger Bernedoodle would probably take quite a bit of space and might not work out as well in the smaller place. But if you have a house and a yard, a larger dog might work great for you. 

Regardless of their size, most Bernedoodles are awesome family pets and will be your joy and pride on a daily basis.
