Any of our doodles are great family dogs. They are extremely adaptable and have very few health problems. I think it is safe to say that Doodle tends to inherit the best characteristics of both breeds. They tend to shed less and their somewhat hypoallergenic traits tend to be big pluses to consider. It is hard to go wrong with any Doodle.
If you have a lot of space and like large dogs, then a Bernese Mountain Dog may be good choices for you to consider. This breed is great with families and children provided that they have been appropriately socialized. If you don’t have a lot of space, or you are gone for long periods of time a Bernese may not be good choices for you.
