The Golden Mountain Doodle is one of the newest and hottest fads in the “double doodle” and designer dog industry. The Golden Mountain Doodle is a mix between three popular dog breeds: the Golden Retriever, Bernese Mountain Dog, and Poodle. It’s famous for it’s typical tri-color coat consisting of various forms of browns, whites, and blacks. In addition, the Golden Mountain Doodle often contains the coveted hypoallergenic and nonshedding features that comes from the Poodle. This breed is typically bred by taking a Bernedoodle and cross breeding with a Goldendoodle. Thus, the Golden Mountain Doodle is intelligent, friendly, and loyal with a fun loving attitude.
The Golden Retriever
Golden Retrievers bring the submissive, fun loving, and clever personality to The Golden Mountain Doodle. They have a respectful demeanor, and make them incredible family pets, especially around small children. They are active dog breeds that love to fetch, run, and stay active. Golden Retrievers are also very caring making them great emotional support dogs, disability supporters, and search and rescue dogs.
The Bernese Mountain Dog
The Bernese Mountain Dog is a larger dog breed that is considered an easy going and accommodating family dog. With his thick dark coat, he is mildly active and enjoys colder temperatures with his thick coat. The Bernese Mountain Dogs are very mild mannered, and some even consider them too bashful and easy going. Most Bernese Mountain Dogs are sociable and peaceful with other animals and humans.
The Poodle brings three very important characteristics to the Bernese Mountain Doodle: extreme intelligence, hypoallergenic fur, and a nonshedding coat. Poodle dog breeds are extremely trainable which makes commands, tricks, and potty training look easy compared to other dog types. In addition, they are active dogs and get along with smaller children. The most important feature that contributes to the Bernese Mountain Doodle is the hypoallergenic fur and nonshedding coat. You’ll receive fewer allergic reactions and won’t have spend all weekend picking up and vacuuming fur.
Bernedoodle and Goldendoodle Mix
Since you can’t breed three types of dogs together, the Golden Mountain Doodle is bred from a Bernedoodle and Goldendoodle mix. Typically, the resulting Bernedoodle and Goldendoodle mix are at least F2B generation, meaning that their offspring have at least 50% Poodle genetics, less than 25% Bernese Mountain Dog genetics, and less than 25% Golden Retriever genetics. The reason you want a significant amount of Poodle genetics is so the dog doesn’t shed hair often and is hypoallergenic.

GANA breeders undergo strict health testing requirements for the hip, heart, eye, elbows, and more to ensure that you are getting a healthy dog.
