The sturdy, strong Bernese Mountain Dog originated on Swiss farms, where he worked as a drover, draft dog and guardian. The breed’s long, thick double coat protects him in cold conditions but requires frequent brushing. With his calm, confident temperament and desire to be near his family, the Bernese Mountain Dog is an ideal companion. Affectionately known as Berners, this breed requires moderate exercise.
