Description

  The Bernese mountain dog is a wonderful dog. If you are reading these lines it is probably because you agree with me and  you want to know more about that breed,  maybe even in order to own one of these wonderful dog. I breed  bernese for two major reasons:  I love animals and I like to contribute to the improvement of the breed. I live in the country that is why I have the possibility to be surrounded by animals. I work for a veterinarian so I am really always with animals and can learn new things every day. I also study genetics, different kinds of illness and problems that dog may have, mouvement, conformation and obedience. On top of bernese I also breed "Ragdoll" cats. They are gorgeous big cats with blue eyes that can easily reach  20 pounds or more. But let's go back to the Bernese....

      Here is a brief description of the Bernese mountain dog:

The bernese is a very faithful dog, has a very affectionate character and a big intelligence. His temperament demands at once firmness and softness, but all brutality disgusts it. A little slow to training, it perfectly keeps in memory this that it assimilated. They are particularly sturdy dogs. They need a weekly brushing and about 2 groomings per year in the spring and the fall. The nails uniformly must be cut and the ears cleaned. If you arelooking for a big  good "toutou" with the children, faithful, active but not too much, (as the labrador or the golden)  well ,the bernese would be an excellent choice. But attention, before taking your decision do not forget anything about the expenses linked to the purchase of your new companion: the veterinary expenses to spay or neutered your friend, the vaccines, the heartworm treatments in the summer, the food (a big dog eats quite a lot) as well as the expenses of the groomings. Be ready to face all these expenses on top of the purchase of your puppy.
