Dogs 101 - 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 Berners 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.

A Look Back
Bernese
Mountain Dogs (Berner Sennenhund) originated in Switzerland and are
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.

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 makes them a good fit for families.
