The Bernese Mountain Dog originated in Switzerland where it was called “Berner Sennenhund”. The Berner is one of four varieties of Swiss Mountain Dog and the only one of those four with a long silky, double coat. Their coat is always tri-colored and does shed seasonally so it should be brushed regularly. Berners are a large, sturdy breed with a calm temperament, which makes them good for working around the farm as is their original use. The AKC recognized the breed in 1937 in the Working Group. They range in size from 23 to 27 ½ inches tall at the withers and their current use is for pulling carts, driving cattle, competing in confirmation, obedience, agility, tracking, guard dog, family companion and therapy work.
