Micro Bernedoodles, also known as Tiny Bernedoodles, is the smallest of the Bernedoodle varieties, typically weighing between 10 to 24 pounds when fully grown. These pint-sized pups are perfect for apartment living or families with limited space, offering their larger counterparts all the love and affection in a more compact package.

  • Birth to 8 Weeks: During the first eight weeks, Micro Bernedoodles experience rapid growth and require plenty of socialization and care. Early exposure to different environments and people is crucial for their development.
  • 8 Weeks to 6 Months: Micro Bernedoodles will continue to grow and develop during this period, although slower than larger Bernedoodles. Training and socialization should be a priority to ensure they become well-adjusted adults.
