The Bernese Mountain Dog

One of four varieties of Swiss Mountain Dog, the Bernese Mountain Dog is the only variety that possesses a long, silky coat. A hardy dog that thrives in cold weather, the "Berner's" intelligence, strength, and agility helped him perform the drafting and droving work in the mountainous region where he originated. Today, this versatile breed participates in conformation, obedience, carting, agility, tracking, herding, and therapy work. Like the other Swiss breeds, they are tri-colored, with patches of black, rust, and white.

History

The Bernese Mountain Dog (Berner Sennenhund) originated in Switzerland and is named for the Canton of Bern. Historically, Berners were used as general-purpose farm dogs. Their large, sturdy frames and calm, confident temperaments made them ideal for pulling carts to market, driving dairy cattle, watching the farm, and acting as companions to farmers.

Temperament

Farm dogs by heritage, Berners need a moderate amount of exercise as well as consistent obedience training. As a double-coated breed, they also tend to shed, and so require regular brushing. Their gentle, easygoing manner and the need to be close to their people make them a good fit for families. Despite their large size, they do great with children!
