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 thing with Bernedoodles is that they are a mixed breed, and as with many mixed breeds, there is no real standard for their size and weight.
Full-grown Bernedoodle size may vary quite a bit from dog to dog. It gets even trickier when you take into account that Bernedoodles come in three different types, depending on what type of poodle their parent is. There are Standard Bernedoodles, Mini Bernedoodles, and Micro Bernedoodles (or Tiny Bernedoodles). Confused yet? Let’s dive in to figure this out.
Standard Bernedoodles come from cross breeding Bernese Mountain Dog with Standard Poodle. Standard Poodles have a withers height of 20 in-24 in and weigh 45-70 lb. This is a large dog, comparable to Bernese Mountain Dog in size. The resulting puppies – Standard Bernedoodles – grow to be around 20-30 in high and weigh around 60-80lb (there is still some variation from litter to litter and from puppy to puppy.
Now, Mini Bernedoodles are a result of crossing Bernese Mountain Dog with Miniature Poodles. Miniature poodles, despite their name, are not necessarily all that miniature. A miniature poodle stands up to 10-15 in tall and weighs 15-20 lb. A miniature Bernedoodle can grow to be up to 18 – 20 in tall and weigh 25-50 lb.
When a Bernese Mountain Dog is cross-bred with Toy Poodle, we get a Micro Bernedoodle or a Tiny Bernedoodle. Toy Poodles are the smallest Poodle type. They grow as tall as 8-10 in high and weigh up to 10 lb. A Micro Bernedoodle will stand 10 – 18 in tall and weigh 10 – 25lb.
Below you can find a reference table with full-grown Bernedoodle sizes depending on what type of poodle was used as one of the parents.
|Bernedoodle type||Parent breeds||Size||Weight|
|Standard Bernedoodle||Bernese Mountain Dog + Standard Poodle||20in – 30in||60 – 80 lb|
|Mini Bernedoodle||Bernese Mountain Dog + Miniature Poodle||18in – 20in||25 – 50 lb|
|Micro Bernedoodle||Bernese Mountain Dog + Toy Poodle||10in – 18in||10-25 lb|
Overall, a full-grown Bernedoodle may vary from 10 to 30in in height and weigh anywhere from 10 to 80 lb depending on their poodle parent. As you can see, this is quite a range. This is great for Bernedoodle lovers who can choose the size of the dog that best suits their living conditions. Temperament-wise, all Bernedoodles are very similar regardless of size.
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.
