The Bernese Mountain Dog 

 Truly The Best Breed

The Bernese Mountain Dog has a long history as an “all-around” dog, having been developed in the midlands region of Switzerland as a multi-purpose farm dog devoted to his owner and family. Today's Berners continue that heritage in star fashion—they excel as multi-talented workers and eager-to-please companions.
