Bernedoodles are goofy, charming dogs who love to play outdoors just as much as they love to cuddle up on the couch. One of the most notable characteristics of this breed is their intelligence. As descendants of Poodles, famous for their sharp minds, this breed exhibits remarkable cognitive abilities. Whether it’s learning new tricks or obedience commands, they are quick studies and enjoy mental stimulation. However, if you bring home a Bernedoodle puppy, we recommend starting training early to work on that stubborn, independent streak inherited from their dog parents.
