Bernese Mountain Dog Characteristics

The Bernese Mountain Dog is a docile, smart breed that was initially bred to do work in the mountains of Switzerland. Since then, they have evolved to be great family companions as well. While they may lure prospective dog owners in with their friendly appearance, Berner's are born work dogs and have an abundance of energy. Be sure you have time to provide ample exercise as well as obedience training and thorough grooming.

Fast Facts

  • Energy High
  • Size Large
  • Trainability Responsive

One of four types of Swiss Mountain Dogs, the Berner is a large and sturdy dog breed. Standing between 23-28 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 70-115 pounds, the Bernese Mountain Dog is firmly in the large dog category. This, along with their abundance of energy, makes it important to provide them with a backyard to play in and frequent exercise. As tempting as it might be, trying to raise a Berner in an apartment will likely result in bad behavior and an anxious pet.

 

Bernese Mountain Dogs are considered a high-maintenance breed for other reasons as well. The breed is a top shedder, and even with frequent brushing and regular grooming, you're likely to find your furniture covered in dog hair. Also, due to the small gene pool from which they were created, Berners are prone to a large number of health issues and a relatively short life span. 

 

Typically living between 7-10 years, the Bernese Mountain Dog is prone to von Willebrand's Disease (vWD), hypomyelination, allergies, hypothyroidism, hepatocerebellar degeneration and progressive retinal atrophy (PRA). Be sure to do your research and buy from a reputable breeder in order to find the healthiest examples of the Bernese Mountain Dog
