Bernedoodle Information

We now have Bernedoodles!!

Country of Origin: The Bernedoodle hybrid was developed by breeding Bernese Mountain Dogs and Poodles. The Bernese Mountain Dog originated in Switzerland while the Poodle originated in Germany and France.

Size: The Bernedoodle is a cross of the Poodle and Bernese Mountain Dog. As a result, the puppy’s size and weight can vary tremendously. Breeders may use standard, miniature or even toy poodles. Sizes range from: Standard – 23-29″ / 70-90lbs Miniature – 15-20″ / 25-49 lbs.

Coat: Bernedoodles are known for the hypoallergenic properties of their coats. Bernedoodle coats are typically wavy and curly, which results in minimal shedding. Curly coats require brushing to prevent tangles, as well as periodic trimming. Bernedoodles can range in colors, with the most common combinations being either black, black and brown, black and white, or black, white, and brown. Each Bernedoodle’s appearance can vary because it is a crossbreed, meaning each litter has genetically different parents.

Character: Bernedoodles are extremely smart, loyal, and good in nature. They can be wary around strangers so it is important to socialize them as early in life as possible.

Temperament: Overall, the temperament of the Bernedoodle is playful and affectionate. They interact well with children and generally love to spend lots of time with their human families. Because they need to be in close and consistent proximity with their human families, you will find that they don’t do well when left alone for long periods of time. Bernedoodles make great family dogs because they are friendly and easy to socialize. A lot of intelligence is passed on from the Poodle parent, which allows the Bernedoodle to be able to work as a therapy dog, with the proper training.

Care: Bernedoodles require moderate maintenance. Because the Bernese parent contributes constant and seasonal shedding of all of the coat types, brushing your Bernedoodle a couple times a week is recommended. Bathing is recommended as needed. Bernedoodles have a no or minimal shedding rate for the curly and wavy coated canines but for the straight coated version, which is less common, the shedding rate is a little higher.

Training: When they are still young, Bernedoodles can be a little bit headstrong. Therefore, it is important that you start your Bernedoodle puppy with socialization and training early. Use a clear, strong voice with a kind, positive tone to train your Bernedoodle. They are very intelligent with an eager-to-please nature that makes it easier for them to be trained. It might take a few repeats of your instruction, but these pups are usually quick to comply with commands. Reward good behavior and obedience with meaty, bite-sized treats and lots of praise and encouragement. Bernedoodles are extra-sensitive to your tone and mood, so harshness will scare them into shying away from you.

Activity: Bernedoodles are a moderately active cross-breed. Daily walking, play, and interaction is recommended. Their natural gait is a slow trot, so walking a Bernedoodle should be easy for most people.

Clumber Spaniel Country of Origin

The Clumber Spaniel’s history is one with many holes. There is very little documentation regarding the origin of the breed, however, it is believed that several breeds including the Basset Hound, Alpine Spaniel and St. Bernard, were involved. It is also believed that the Clumber Spaniel originated in France and was moved to England for safe keeping during the French Revolution by one of the dukes of Noailles. The duke turned over his precious cargo to the Duke of Newcastle at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire, giving the breed their name.

The Clumber Spaniel became a fast favorite of English royalty. Historical figures such as King Edward VII, his son King George V and Prince Albert(Queen Victoria’s consort), are all said to have owned a Clumber Spaniel. The Clumber Spaniel is the largest of all the spaniel breeds. They were utilized for their specialty in hunting in dense cover and would often be found hunting partridge as well as pheasant. They can also be trained to retrieve.

The Clumber Spaniel found itself in Canada in 1848 and soon made its way south to the United States. The Clumber Spaniel was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1884 and was prestigiously one of the first 9 breeds to be accepted to the registry.

Clumberdoodle Character

The Clumber Spaniel is a very sweet, loyal and affectionate breed that is not overly active once they have reached maturity. The Clumber Spaniel is a hunting breed with an excellent nose and retrieving ability. They are typically utilized to hunt pheasant and partridge in dense cover, but are also good water dogs.

The Clumber Spaniel has what is known as a “trophy mentality”, requiring them to carry something in their mouths quite often. Due to this, it is imperative that objects potentially harmful to the dog be kept out of reach. It is recommended to keep plenty of puppy friendly toys on hand. For those out there looking for the perfect quiet companion, the Clumber Spaniel is not prone to barking.

Clumberdoodle Temperament

The Clumber Spaniel is quite playful and friendly with the family and is known to do well with children. They are also known to be quite easy going with other non-canine pets.

When you mix the Clumber Spaniel with poodle, and all great qualities are enhanced. My Clumberdoodles are very friendly with everyone.

Goldendoodle Information

Country of Origin: The Goldendoodle is a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle, a cross that originated in North America in the late 1990s. Poodle crossbreeds are meant to produce a dog with mixed traits and the Poodle’s signature nonshedding coat. Like other ‘designer breeds’, the Goldendoodle has seen a recent surge in popularity.  As a crossbreed, the Goldendoodle is not eligible for registration with purebred registries such as the American Kennel Club, but it can be registered with the American Canine Hybrid Club.  Some breeders produce Goldendoodles by crossing a purebred Poodle with a purebred Golden Retriever (called a first-generation cross), but others allow crossing Goldendoodles with Poodles or Golden Retrievers (called a backcross), or other Goldendoodles (called a multi-generation cross). Different Parent crosses can result in different personalities and Characteristics. That’s why here at we do only parents we love ourselves with great personalities and Characteristics. We also do F1 generation and F1B generation at this time. Occasionally an F1BB. This is listed on our puppy ads

Size: Here at Goldendoodleranch, Large Goldendoodles generally are called a Standard Size. We do a small Standard, then next size would be a medium, then small, then Mini which can range in different sizes, last we have the micro-mini which is the smallest we do. In each of our ads, you can see a puppy Bio that gives you parent size sometimes grandparent size and size expectancy for a puppy. This helps the customer decide the size that they would like to get. The Goldendoodle has a wide variety of appearances. That is why they are called the Designer hybrid dogs. Each Goldendoodle has its own looks. Not one will look like their parents.

Coat: The Goldendoodle’s coat is a cross between the Golden Retriever and Poodle coat. It has fine hairs which appear quite thick. It can be curly or straight, most fall somewhere in the middle. Unclipped, the hair will grow about 4-7 in length. Unlike the Poodle, the Goldendoodle should not be clipped any shorter than 2 in, as the coat provides natural protection in heat and cold. Depending on the Poodle influence, the Goldendoodle can come in a wide variety of colors including white, tan, chocolate, black, red, silver, or a mix thereof. A variety of colors and coat textures can appear in the same litter. Depending on the source breeds, the Goldendoodle may shed little to none like the Poodle or shed moderately like the Golden Retriever, this is considered for the F1 generation and work well for mild allergies. Generally, the F1b generations are better for severe allergy sufferers, as they are no-shed. Most Poodle crosses will go through various coat phases in their first year of life.

Character: The Goldendoodle is intelligent, friendly, and family-oriented. It is a highly social dog. Goldendoodles tend to follow their nose wherever it leads, so a fenced-in yard is recommended. They are always ready for a game; most Goldendoodles retain the natural retrieving instincts of the Golden Retriever. The Goldendoodle’s friendliness with strangers makes it a poor watchdog, however, most are good at alerting you.  Goldendoodles do not bark frequently.

Temperament: Goldendoodles love to be with their family. They are eager to please and get along well with children, other animals, and strangers. They are social dogs and crave being around people. These qualities make them easy to train

They are prone to most health issues affecting Golden Retrievers and Poodles, including hip dysplasia (malformed hip joint which can cause lameness or arthritis), ear infections (particularly for longer-eared dogs), and eye problems such as cataracts, but as a mixed breed, they are somewhat less likely to suffer health problems than purebreds (known as ‘hybrid vigor’). Vets are loving the hybrid dogs.

Training: The Goldendoodle is intelligent and has a strong desire to please its master, making it highly trainable. Positive reinforcement is likely to be the most successful approach.

Activity: The Goldendoodle requires a moderate amount of exercise. Most enjoy swimming as both the Poodle and Golden Retriever are not averse to water. Goldendoodles can live happily on a farm or in a big city. a large home or an apartment (with walks) They will thrive with daily walks or playtime.
