I’m not sure I 💯% understand these generational terms.

F1 Bernedoodle: 50% Poodle & 50% Bernese Mountain Dog

F1B Bernedoodle: 75% Poodle & 25% Bernese Mountain Dog

F1BB Bernedoodle: 87.5% Poodle & 12.5% Bernese Mountain Dog

F2 Bernedoodle: 50% Poodle & 50% Bernese Mountain Dog

F2B Bernedoodle: 62.5% Poodle & 37.5% Bernese Mountain Dog

F2BB Bernedoodle: 81.25% Poodle & 18.75% Bernese Mountain Dog

F3 Bernedoodle or Multi-generation Bernedoodle: Numerous generations of Bernedoodle reproducing normally backcross breeding to the Criterion Poodle.

*If my mini’s Mothers, Mother (so the grandmother) has two parents that are Bernedoodle’s & my mini’s Fathers parents are a Bernedoodle and a Poodle than what generation is my puppy?

Most people breeding crosses only care about the F1 generation, or maybe the F1 generation back-crossed to one of the parent breeds. The rare breeders trying to actually develop the initial crosses into an actual breed, with a set type and predictability in inherited traits are the ones who keep track of all the other generation types.

And yeah, a lot of places only allow wat are called Stub Book Traditional (SBT) Bengals that are at least three generations removed from the initial wild cross.
