Overview
The exact origin of this breed is unknown, but many believe they began their existence as a farm dog in the Swiss mountains. Their large hardy build and calm nature made them ideal for pulling carts, herding cattle, and being a farmer's companion. Bernese Mountain Dogs are a highly versatile breed.
Character
The Bernese Mountain Dog is commonly referred to as the "Berner". This wonderful breed has a long list of attributes. They are strong, agile, and highly intelligent. Their gentle demeanor and stunning appearance has contributed to this breed's growing popularity. There are few dog breeds that can match the Bernese Mountain Dogs striking appearance, work ethic, and companion skills.
Temperament
This breed is by nature, loving and alert. They are generally tolerant, sweet, and gentle. The Bernese Mountain Dog is typically excellent with children. However, since they are a large breed, they should never be left unsupervised with small children or children unknown to the dog. They thrive on human companionship and activity and may develop behavioral problems if they are deprived of social interaction. The Berner is protective but is not aggressive unless threatened or provoked. They may be aloof to strangers and have a tendency to be shy. This breed is a devoted indoor member of the family and a willing outdoor helper.
Care
The Bernese Mountain Dog requires daily brushing, with extra care needed during their heavy seasonal shedding. A periodic bath or dry shampooing is recommended. They are typically a hardy breed, but may have a tendency to suffer from elbow or hip dysplasia, cancer, bloat, or eyelid problems. Their size and thick coat make them highly susceptible to heat stroke.
Coat
The Bernese Mountain Dog has a stunning weather-resistant tri-color double coat. The coat is black with symmetrical markings of white and rust, moderate in length and either slightly way or straight. It is very thick and has a bright natural sheen. This breed is a seasonal heavy shedder.
Training
This breed benefits from early socialization and basic obedience. Bernese Mountain Dogs are extremely sensitive and will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed training methods. All training should be done with positive techniques such as respect, reward, love, fairness, and consistency.
Activity
The Bernese Mountain Dog needs an inordinate amount of exercise, interaction, and activity. They require a minimum half hour of vigorous exercise daily as well as several outside trips. They are not recommended for apartment dwelling, as they need a securely fenced large yard to run and play. They excel in conformation, obedience, tracking, herding, and agility.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Bernese Mountain Dog puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

We had a Berne name CJ (Sir Corinthian Julliard) He lived to be 9 years and was such a love. Our family & friends all loved CJ. He's been gone for 2 years now and we still miss him. We had a trainer train him he got so big so fast. He was 160lbs and got him down to 150lbs. A gentle Giant..... RIP

1 Comment

Anonymous

There is no standard height requirement of a Bernese Mountain Dog at 12 weeks old. Contacting your breeder and vet is the best thing to do in this case, as the breeder can give you the average of his/her pups; while the vet can tell you if your pup is healthy and at the correct height or not.

2 Comments

Your veterinarian will assess your dog's overall health and can check for worms. Also, make sure you're feeding the proper amount each day. My Bernese pup weighed 38 pounds at four months, 77 pounds at 18 months. Much of how a pup develops is genetic. Check the size of both parents and grandparents if you can. Remember there is considerable variation in size within the breed. You may just have a runt.

Female bernese are almost always smaller than males. Normal weight vary between 45 to 65 lbs at that age. Genetics do play a huge part in your puppies potential size as well as your feeding & nutrition practices. Ask your vet to evaluate your feeding program and make appropriate adjustments as necessary.

You would need to choose the right puppy, ours is a great family member. As far as a guardian goes he is not one to sound an audible alarm to let everyone know there is trouble but that is one of the traits that we were looking for.

Not all Berners are good guardians. Ours is very friendly and wants everyone to pet her. However, as she grows, her size and forwardness is enough to cause most people to back off. You will definitely know if someone is there. We've had more than one occasion when our young dog snapped to attention in the house and quietly went to the back door. We peeked out the window and found a Pit Bull in the front yard. Loyalty has to be earned. Ours had none until she learned she was not the pack leader. I've met others who have several Berners and they are great guardians. They don't even let the neighbor's horse get within ten feet of the property line.

Before accepting the dog we tried to explain how much of an undertaking it would be, but they wouldn't hear of it. They wound up getting him, although they refused to let him in their back yard. He only has a narrow fenced in area 4 bathroom. We even offered to fence in the big yard & the answer is always no! He is 3& a half yrs. He's never been bathed in the yr they've had him! He barks like crazy 24/7 & I believe it's because he's sick. He also suffers from Pica (eating non food items)an example: he ate an entire towel whole & then almost choked to death when he threw up. The owner does less than the bare minimum & not because he lacks the means, it's a lack of care. We've done all we can including confronting them about his health, and no compliance. I need advice on how to deal with this. I worry about this dog.Thank you.

Berner's are very sensitive to heat & are more likely than any other breed to suffer from heat stroke. They are typically very well behaved & can be left alone during an average work day, however, just like any dog, training and consistency are extremely important. Also get ready to vacuum like never before! Their health & personalities are very sensitive, but they're very sweet dogs, just know they are very high maintenance!

I had a Berner for 14 years growing up. She stayed indoor for the work day and liked to lay out on the porch after work. She never destroyed the house or anything like that. We kept her clipped short so there was little hair to vaccum and she looked really cute too. She did have some dry skin issues and never had any heath problems. Perfect doggy!

Please visit www.bmdca.org and read the entire Info Series! Is your Berner registered with Bernergarde? Has she passed all clearances (OFA Hips/Elbows/Cardiac, CERF, DM)? Are at least 75% of the dogs in her 4 generation pedigree AKC Champions and have all of their clearances? Is she herself an AKC conformation champion, and therefore fits the breed standard for structure, movement, type and temperament? The BMDCA has a breed steward program, they would love to help!

If by physically stronger, yes male Bernese mountain dogs are more built than the females.. typically 20 or 30 lbs heavier. Although, for BMD, weight is hardly a factor. They are big fluff balls towards children and when raised correctly the most outgoing and submissive breed out there !!

The house may not be a factor if you are allowing your dog plently of exercise and outdoor time. We have a decent size house and a good size backyard, however, our Berner loves walks (up to 3 a day) and since he's turned 9 years old, car rides

The Bernese can enjoy the water like any other breed. If they are not used to the water some patience will be required. Take a favorite toy to toss in shallow water. If the dog sees you in the water, they may be ok coming in right along with you. But there could be caution demonstrated on the part of the dog. Encourage the dog but don't force it. Your dog will let you know it's comfort level. With patience and trust the dog should be willing to take the plunge. As for boats, the same rules apply. Show the dog, let them smell and see boats on the water. If your dog is accustomed to riding in the car, the boat experience should not be an issue.

Puppies love to chew "Anything"! I would recommend taking your puppy to an area where there are no rocks if possible. If not, give the puppy a favorite toy to distract it. Rocks can pose issues that require medical care. Try to pay attention and when you see the puppy picking up a rock, take it away immediately, tell the puppy no and offer it a chew toy.

Bernese are relatively calm dogs. We also have a Bassett Hound and an English Mastiff and 4 other Bernese. All of our dogs get along wonderful. Our daughter has a Jack Russell Terrier and an Old English Bulldog. These dogs also play well with our Bernese. I personally would avoid a Pit Bull or Pit Bull mix. Other breeds such as Labs, Retrieves and even smaller breeds should be fine.

I really want a Berner♥ I read a 100+ paged manual on them and finished it in 2 hours, but I still have a few questions. On Animal Planets breed guide, for affection it says they're only 3 out of 5. Would you agree? Because I prefer dogs that when you come home whether 5 minutes, or 5 hours will welcome you with a wagging tail or maybe even get jumped on. I know they aren't playful, but do they like playing "tag"? Or run around outside? And what health problems are seen most often in this breed? How many times do you need to feed them in a day and would Blue Buffalo dog food be alright with them? Thank you for any answers!

They are extremely affectionate and loyal. I have 5 berners all in my house and they are always happy to see me, always giving me kisses, I have 1 that always gives hugs, they just want to be by you. When I get up to leave a room, they follow. They are extremely affectionate. My dogs love getting out and running. With any large breed you need to take care of their joints, but if you get a good breeder and a good vet, usually you will be okay, but the key is that you take the steps to prevent all that you can prevent.I keep food and water available to my dogs all the time and I have sold several puppies to new families that use Blue Buffalo and have heard no negative comments about it. Hope this helps!

We currently live in Houston in an apartment our Berner does just fine. We take her for morning and later evening walks during the summer so she doesn't get to hot. We also make a fan available to her to lay next to. This is a working breed so as long as they are exercised they do fine in an apt just use common sense during summer months.

Pretty actually..... If he lived outside all his life than it won't be very easy to housebreak. And if the bernese pup is six months old??? That would make it even harder. But if you can put in like two hours a day training your pup. Go for it!!!! I honestly think if your a patient person than yes you should adapt him or her.

Along with wiping her mouth with baby wipes and then applying neosporin to these areas. It seems to help a bit, but she is still slighlty red. Also, she seems to scratch and shake her ears a lot. The ears seem to be blotchy and they are very warm. Is this normal for this breed? Could this all just be connected to a food allergy? And is there any known foods that work well for this breed?

I have a Berner who is almost 3 and have not had food allergy problems though that is not uncommon in any breed. I am not smarter than a vet, but I would wonder about staph or yeast. Maybe they could do a scraping to test and see what the infection actually is. Do you groom? It might also be that the shampoo you are using is drying to the skin or causing an allergy (ears). Just some thoughts.

Hi my breeder says that I cannot walk my new Bernese Mountain Dog for anything over 30 minutes... Hi my breeder says that I cannot walk my new Bernese Mountain Dog for anything over 30 minutes until he is over a year old as he can damage his bones. Is this true?

Yes. Bernese Mountain Dog's can get puppy bone and joint problems. You have a good breeder for telling you that.

Well yes and no.. Bernese Mountain Dogs can be exposed to joint issues if over worked at a young age, but if anyone has had a berner you know that most are little tazmanian devils when pups they will be walking around way more then 30 minutes a day. So I think that your breeder is exaggerating a bit, but only for your pups safety.. for the first couple months you won't even be able to walk that long because he/she will poop out on you in the middle of the walk
