DOGS 101 - Bernese Mountain Dog [ENG]

The breed standard for the Bernese mountain dog states that dogs should not be “aggressive, anxious or distinctly shy”, but rather should be “good-natured”, “self-assured”, “placid towards strangers”, and “docile”.[5] The temperament of individual dogs may vary, and not all examples of the breed have been bred carefully to follow the standard. All large breed dogs should be well socialized when they are puppies, and given regular training and activities throughout their lives.

Bernese are outdoor dogs at heart, though well-behaved in the house; they need activity and exercise, but do not have a great deal of endurance. They can move with amazing bursts of speed for their size when motivated. If they are sound (no problems with their hips, elbows, or other joints), they enjoy hiking and generally stick close to their people.[6] Not being given the adequate amount of exercise may lead to barking and harassing in the Bernese.[7]

Bernese mountain dogs are a breed that generally does well with children, as they are very affectionate.[6] They are patient dogs that take well to children climbing over them.[6] Though they have great energy, a Bernese will also be happy with a calm evening.
Bernese work well with other pets and around strangers.
