It’s not an easy question to answer. A tri-color Bernedoodle is one of the most challenging Bernedoodle to get. Many breeders say that they spend almost 5 to 10 years getting their first tri-color Bernedoodle. The main colors of a tri-color Bernedoodle are white, black, and rust. Moreover, they also have a white color on the face or not. The traditional look of the tri-color Bernedoodle dogs is like a Bernese mountain dog. Mostly breeder’s colors test their breeding stock before the litter is born. They want to know about the color of the Bernedoodle puppies.
A tri-color Bernedoodle usually is an F1 generation Bernedoodle. These Bernedoodles can obtain by crossing the Bernese mountain dog with a poodle. The traditional tri-color Bernedoodles are Tri-color phantom, Tri-color sable, and Tri-color Merle.
But we can also get the tri-color Bernedoodle of F1B generation. The F1B generation tri-color Bernedoodle can obtain by crossing the Bernese mountain dog with the F1 generation poodle. This tri-color Bernedoodle can have tri-color phantom, tri-color sable, and tri-color Merle.
The phantom tri-color Bernedoodle dog has black, white, and rust colors. These tri colors Bernedoodle obtained after crossing the Bernese mountain dog with a poodle of any color. The poodle colors include Black, white, or rust.
Sable color is more about the background coat color than any other tip color. Mostly the tip color is black with any different color in the background. The sable tri-color Bernedoodle can obtain by crossing the Bernese mountain dog with the poodle of black color or any other solid color.
Merle tri color is more about the pattern of the Bernedoodle color. This color is the combination of different colors in the Bernedoodle coat. In this tri-color type, there is a solid color Bernedoodle with the patches of any other color like blue or gray. These are also known as the blue Merle and gray Merle. The Merle tri-color Bernedoodle can obtain by crossing the Bernese mountain dog with the poodle of gray or blue color.
From the above discussion, we can observe that the tricolor is mostly dependent upon the poodle color. It’s less dependent on the Bernese mountain dog. The Bernese mountain dog comes in almost the same back, white, and rust color. So you need to pick a well-desired color poodle to get your perfect desired tri-color Bernedoodle. Make sure you don’t always need to get your desired color by each crossing. As discussed above, it’s challenging to get a perfect tricolor.
