Don’t be confused by Bernedoodle breed lingo. Here’s a quick tutorial to get you started.
F1 (first generation): 50% AKC Poodle (one parent) and 50% AKC Bernese Mountain Dog (other parent)
F1B (first generation Bernedoodle bred to a poodle): 75% Poodle and 25% Bernese. This is cross between a F1 first-generation Bernedoodle (one parent) and an AKC purebred Poodle (other parent).
F2 (parents for this dog are BOTH F1’s): This is a first-generation Bernedoodle bred to a first-generation Bernedoodle. Australian Bernedoodle: There is NO Australian Shepherd in an Australian Bernedoodle. An Australian Bernedoodle is created when any generation Bernedoodle is bred with an Australian Labradoodle. Australian Labradoodles are considered “multi-gens” as they are many, many generations from the first lab/poodle pairings. The breed has been around for about 30 years and is considered by many the “cream of the crop” in terms of coat quality and temperament in the Doodle world. There are even breed clubs and breed standards for the Australian Labradoodle. ALDs are wonderful family companions with amazing temperaments and beautiful allergy-friendly coats. We believe Australian Bernedoodles are the perfect family companions with amazing temperaments, fabulous coats, and trainability.
Teddy Bear Bernedoodle: Teddy Bears Bernedoodles are also known as multigenerational Bernedoodles. They are any combination of a F1 bred to an F1b Bernedoodle, multigenerational Bernedoodle, or Australian Labradoodle. They get their name because their gorgeous loose wavy coats make them look like teddy bears.
