Coat Types

They can come in three different coat types. 

Doodle dogs, like the Bernedoodle, are generally considered to be hypoallergenic, but they’re NOT non-allergenic. No dog is truly non-allergenic. In the case of Bernedoodles, they are allergy-friendly because of their single coat. While all coat types are considered to be allergy-friendly, the curly coat is considered to be ideal for severe allergy sufferers.


straight coat F1 Bernedoodle

  • Straight “hair coat” – The straight coats usually have some shedding and are considered the least hypoallergenic of the three coat types.  The length of the dog’s straight hair depends mostly on the length of the parent’s hair.  Straight-coated Bernedoodles are not very common; but there is a desire for them for people that want a pup that looks more BMD than doodle, want less shedding and a longer life span then the BMD.


Wavy F1 Bernedoodle

Wavy “fleece” coat – The wavy coat, which is low-to non-shedding, is probably the coat most seen on Bernedoodles. This coat is very free-flowing and often has a kinked or wavy appearance.


Curly F1B Bernedoodles 

  • Curly “wool” coat – The curly coat will shed the least and is the most hypoallergenic of the three types. The curls on this coat are usually tight with a soft texture much like what you would see on a Poodle. Curly coats may still shed, but they shed the hair upon themselves rather than on your floor. Unfortunately, this shedding upon themselves is what makes it necessary for them to be brushed daily and trimmed frequently. The curly coat Bernedoodle is usually the most suitable for owners who have an allergy to dog dander. If you don’t want to deal with shedding, keep in mind that the curlier the coat, the less it’s going to shed.
