Breed Highlighting: The Bernese Mountain Dog

Wednesday, November 13, 2013
  • Thank you Abby for allowing us to let you represent the wonderful and beautiful breed of the Bernese Mountain Dog! Abby came by Westbury to stay current on her vaccines and was more than willing to pose for a short photo shoot. 
  • Fun Facts about the Bernese Mountain Dog:
They originated in Berne, a region in Switzerland,  and was originally bred to herd and drove cattle

They were also used to pull dairy carts and for light duty cow herding.

Thick coats mean Bernese Mountain Dogs love playing in the snow!

The gentle and patient nature of the breed makes Bernese Mountain Dogs popular as therapy dogs.

Like many giant breeds of dogs, the Bernese Mountain Dog is prone to such medical conditions as hip dysplasia and gastric torsion.
