The Bernese Mountain Dog is one of the four mountain-dog breeds that come from the canton of Bern, an agricultural region in Switzerland.  Many dairy farms are in this area to make milk for two of Switzerland’s most profitable products: cheese and chocolate.

For several hundred years the Bernese Mountain Dog was used to herd cattle on the farms, protect the livestock from predators, and pull small carts.  Due to their large size and power, they were able to carry carts of milk and other dairy products.

As agriculture became modernized in the late 1800s, the Bernese Mountain Dog was not as necessary on the farm.  As a result, the breed’s numbers began to dwindle, and there was a drop in the overall health and quality of new Bernese Mountain Dog puppies.

To counteract this decline, a Swiss club was formed in 1907 with Professor Albert Heim at the head.  Known for his love of pure European breeds, Professor Heim worked hard to regain the quality and status of the Bernese Mountain Dog.

Bernese Mountain Dogs became popular in the United States when a Kansas farmer used a pair as farm dogs in 1926, and the breed became an AKC registered breed in 1937.  

Today they are more commonly used as family pets instead of working on a farm.  However, sporting events are still hosted that showcase the Bernese Mountain Dog’s power and agility with carting and drafting events.

Bernese Mountain Dogs can become quite large.  Males can reach 25-27.5 inches at the shoulder, and females can reach 23-26 inches.

Males can reach 80-115 pounds as adults, and females can reach 70-95 pounds.

Bernese Mountain Dogs have a typical lifespan of 7-10 years.

Bernese Mountain Dog puppies are known for their beautiful coat texture and markings, which are hallmarks of the breed.

Their long coats are thick, silky, and moderately long.  Their coats are typically tri-colored with jet black, pure white, and rust-brown markings.

Bernese Mountain Dogs have a double coat:  a longer outer coat and a woolly undercoat.  These two coats work together to protect the dog’s skin and maintain correct body temperature.

It also means that they will shed more than some breeds, and especially during their semi-annual shedding seasons.

However, excessive shedding and loose hair can be minimized by regular grooming.  It is recommended to groom your Bernese Mountain Dog puppy a minimum of several times a week, and preferably daily.

Not only does daily brushing remove loose hair and reduce shedding; it also keeps knots from building up in their hair and coat.

A key to grooming your dog is to start when they are a puppy.  If grooming is done consistently as a puppy, it becomes routine to both you and your dog.

Bernese Mountain Dogs are generally a healthy breed, and since the early 1900s care has been taken to restore the quality of the breed.

However, the breed is susceptible to common issues with dogs, particularly hip and elbow dysplasia.

Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or lameness if not addressed.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from excessive running on hard surfaces.  This is especially vital when they are a puppy.

Because of their long, floppy ears, it is also important to regularly check the ears for signs of infection.  Whenever your dog gets wet, make sure the hair inside the ears completely dries out.

Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells.  These skin cells are shed by any animal, including humans.

Bernese Mountain Dogs do create more dander than some breeds due to their higher shedding tendency.  Their longer outer coat also creates more dander. This should be considered if someone in your family has concerns with pet allergens.

However, proper and regular grooming and cleaning reduce the number of allergens a Bernese Mountain Dog releases.
