Anyone have a golden/berne doodle?

Hey Everyone,

My fiance and I are looking into getting a dog, we are between a Goldendoodle, Bernedoodle/Australian bernedoodle I personally dont know anyone that has any of these dogs so I thought I would post to see if anyone on here had one.

Just curious to hear how these dogs behave, interact with other people/kids and dogs from someone who has one, not the sites that are trying to sell me one.

Thanks!

Can't disagree there.. I love my landseer, he's awesome.


We had a golden doodle at RN for a few years and it was a great dog. Saw it grow from several weeks to a few years and it was always a great dog to have around. Never met a bernedoodle in person, but have seen some pretty cool looking ones.

If you want a labradootle or goldendootle or Australian, here is the site for some close friends that do selective breeding. They are both physicians and just love the dogs. They treat the dogs amazingly well. I wish I could live in the "dog barn".

I have two adorable purebreed beagles that need a new home. They are loyal, quiet, non-destructive, potty trained and know how to fetch beer.

Good advice, I lost my two dogs that I owned before marriage in my divorce. Fuck you ny

Not a bad idea, though no shedding for us is a big plus.

Thank you, they sound great. We are not huge beagle fans and can really only have 1 dog right now. If I hear of anyone looking I will send you a PM

Thanks for your advice Jeff, we will take that into consideration. From what I have been seeing everything is 1.5-2 year waiting periods so we thought we would start now for the future. If later we decided we were not ready we could back out and loose a small deposit. I do understand what you are saying, we had friends who moved in together and got a puppy the same week...it didnt end well.

Just got a goldendoodle that is now 12.5 weeks old. Really smart. Already house trained (pretty much) and very chill for a puppy that age.


Our last lab was super hyper and crazy as a puppy- remarkable difference.


He is toothy and likes to chew at everything including the kids.

We considered a bernedoodle after our Greater Swiss died but finding one to meet was near impossible. I loved my Greater Swiss, we got the short hair thinking it would be better than the Bernese for shedding. Even the short hair sheds like crazy.

As a breed though I would highly recommend them. My Greater Swiss wouldn't leave my side and I did nothing to train her that way, they are amazingly loyal.

This may sound a bit out of the norm but if you have any local animal shelters, go volunteer a few times.. It would be a great bonding experience for the two of you and you might be amazed at the puppy that captures your heart... Just my two cents worth..

inlaws have some type of doodle dog, its a smart dog and learns quickly. She is smarter than her owners, she is about 14 months old. My wife and I inherited a 75lb golden retreiver, she is as sweet as she can be. Ive never had a dog this food driven or lazy. The Golden is probably at the bottom of my list of dogs I would own...

Ive had Brittany Spaniels since I was a kid, love em as we are wired the same. First 1-2/3 years of puppydom (brittany spaniel) are WFO. I imagine I will always have a Brittany Spaniel in the herd, they arent for lazy people.

We've got an 18 month old goldendoodle. Great dog. She's got a good disposition and has been remarkably easy to train. She does have a lot of energy still, but is starting to mellow a bit. The no shedding part is great. I was not a fan of the -doodle mixes but it's what my wife wanted. I am now very much in love with this dog. She does require some regular (weekly) brushing at a minimum to prevent matting in the hair.


She's stabilized in weight now at around 55 lbs.

Roverlab was a chocolate lab, best friend ever. My Swissie, at 20 months, has proven to be a very, very good dog. She's a 100lb, food -motivated, shedding companion, with a deep booming bark and relatively lazy ( when compared to a lab).
