Well-bred Bernedoodles tend to blend the best attributes of the Bernese and Poodle. They are friendly, fun, goofy, and very social dogs. They’re good with children and the elderly. They also make great therapy dogs. Bernedoodles need basic training, socialization, and guidance to learn right from wrong. They are intelligent and social dogs, a lack of training or human interaction can lead to behavioral problems. Training and exercise will make both the owner and Bernedoodle happy.
Not all pups are made the same, they have different personalities. For the most part, Bernedoodles are calm, social, and loving. We do puppy picks between 5 and 6 weeks, and I do a temperament test at 7 weeks. Your puppy’s test results will be in your puppy packet. Knowing your pup’s score will be very helpful to you and how you handle your puppy. It would also be very helpful to a trainer that would be working with your new puppy. The test I use is the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test. I will have a pretty good idea of your pup’s temperament prior to testing and would be happy to help you with picking a pup if needed.
