Maintenance: Dogs can be a huge responsibility depending on the frequency of the dogs grooming and/or shedding needs.

The Bernedoodle has an average height of 18.75 inches, which is below average compared to all other dog breeds. Therefore, the Bernedoodle is ideal for owners who live in smaller homes (e.g. a city apartment).

The Bernedoodle has an average lifespan of 10 to 15 years, which is average compared to all other dog breeds. Therefore, the Bernedoodle is ideal for people looking for a shorter-term financial and emotional commitment in a canine companion.
