About the Breed

Bernese Mountain Dogs, or "Berners", are an American Kennel Club (AKC) recognized breed with a rich history. From their origins in Switzerland pulling carts, driving cattle, and watching the farm, Berners have quickly become a favorite around the world for their affectionate, easygoing personalities.

Still, careful research and consideration should be made before selecting any breed or individual dog. This is a breed that is not without health issues. If you are looking for a puppy, it’s important that you find a breeder that has this in mind, and has done their homework before selecting dogs for breeding. Before you and your family decide to make a Berner part of your family, please take a moment to consider the strengths, weaknesses, and recommendations that will help you make an informed decision!
