Bernese Mountain Dogs are wonderful companions, however they aren't for every family. They are a strong, large dog with lots of hair. They can really be a handful if not properly trained. Berners are sensitive dogs that want to please you, so training with a gentle hand is best. Here are some useful links on Bernese Mountain Dogs, everything from their origin, to the jobs they do, to their everyday antics! I especially recommend the clicker training sites. Enjoy! And feel free to contact me if you wish to have further information on this wonderful breed!
