I have a fantastic litter of F1 black phantom berniedoodle’s, 5 girls and 2 boys. Black phantom colouring is solid black body colour with tan points ie, their legs, under their tail and on their cheeks and eyebrows. They also have varying degrees of white on their chest and toes. Their details are on the photos, click to enlarge them and the info is it the top corner.
If you search phantom Berniedoodles on line you can get a good idea of what they will look like as adults. Berniedoodle’s are quite rare here in the uk but are becoming ever more popular in Canada and America due to their fantastic temperaments and their shaggy roughish looks.
Mum was our much loved pedigree Bernese Mountain Dog. Tragically she passed away a couple of weeks ago. It was very sudden and it is a massive loss to our family.
Father is a gorgeous pedigree phantom Standard Poodle and photos and documents will be available to view. Both have been hip scored.
The puppies have beautiful temperaments. Cheeky, playful and loving human contact. They are being raised in the home environment so are very used to all the sounds of home, the hoover, tv, general life and other pets. They are very friendly and always happy to see us as they have been socialised and handled from birth. These puppies are beautiful round barrels of cuteness and will make a loyal, loving companion to any family willing to put the time in to training and socialisation.
They will come with a full vet check, 1st vaccination, worming treatments up to date, microchipped and a puppy pack. They will be ready to go to their forever loving homes from the 25/01/20. A £200 deposit will be required to secure your pup.
Now, some of the bits you need to know and consider before buying a doodle.
Bernies are so trouble by illness that I researched extensively a suitable cross breeding and found berniedoodle’s. This was not a quick decision but in researching this pairing, learnt a lot about the benefits of crossbreeding. Crossing pedigree dogs of different breeds, results in puppies that are healthier than either of their parents. This is because the two breeds are generally prone to different genetic problems. Hybrids such as the Berniedoodle are only likely to inherit a health problem that is common to both the Poodle and the Bernese—two breeds that share few common diseases. Berniedoodles therefore have what is referred to as “hybrid vigor,” and can be expected to live healthier, longer lives than their purebred parents. The main common genetic problem they share is hip dysplasia. Both have been tested. Results on request.
The blend of the Bernese and the Poodle produces a smart, friendly, playful dog. They tend to have the sweetness and loyalty of the Bernese, and the goofy liveliness and intelligence of the Poodle. Like the Bernese, they are gentle around children and the elderly, and because they love to work, they often make excellent therapy dogs.
Bernedoodles tend to look like shaggy teddy bears which I love but there are some things you need to know about their coats. There are two main types of coat. You have the double coat which moults and sheds, ie the Bernese and there is the single coat that sheds but does not moult, ie the poodle.
Out there at the moment there are people breeding poodles to anything that moves and then declaring them to be hypoallergenic and none moulting dogs. This simply is not true.
There is a hope that by breeding these two coats together they will take on the none moulting characteristics but this is a 50/50 chance when it comes to an F1. Yes the moulting can be greatly reduced but there is no guarantee what percentage the pups coat will take on until the adult coat comes in at about 9 months old. I will be able to give you a idea which way their coat is heading but it will not be an absolute guarantee. These are going to be hairy dogs! If they take on more of the Bernie coat, they will not need clipping but will moult twice a year and need to be groomed regularly. If they take on more of the poodle coat, they will need their bums and possibly their faces clipping. The poodle coat mats easily and will need regular grooming but you will find you have less dog hair in your food!
Inja’s last litter took on more of the poodle coat so yes there was less moulting but until you’ve been able to breed a good line down to an F4/F5 it’s not something you can say with confidence.

Carry out the research so you have the necessary knowledge of the pet you are getting. Since owning a dog is a big commitment, you should research about the breed fully to make sure it fits your current lifestyle and budget.
Take time to visit the advertiser's home to confirm if they are genuine. Do not settle for online communications and photos. UK Pets does not verify the authenticity of all advertisers. The advertiser should allow you to personally see the puppies with the puppies' mother. If they keep on giving you excuses why you could not visit their home or the address stated in the advert is not the accurate and permanent location of the pet, consider this a red flag.

If your dog pulls on the lead, it does not mean he wants to be the alpha dog. Believe it or not, the reason is far simpler than you might think. Dogs naturally move at a quicker pace than humans, so there’s a tendency to pull ahead when excitement sets in. The eagerness to explore the surroundings triggers your dog’s instinct to run ahead and drag you along. It’s a natural dog behaviour that must be managed so that daily walks would be an enjoyable experience.
