What is a Bernese Mountain Dog? It is important to read up on breeds of dogs before you purchase a puppy. Different breeds thrive best in their own types of environments.

The Bernese Mountain Dog is a large, sturdy dog with a thick silky coat that is tri-colored: jet black, rich golden, and clear white. They are striking and majestic. They love people and are gentle with children. Though large dogs, they are not threatening. Bernese Mountain Dogs need at least a half-hour of moderate exercise every day to stay healthy and happy. Though they are good indoor dogs, Bernese also thrive on outdoor activities, making them a great companion for walking, hiking, and other outdoor activities. Bernese Mountain Dogs are highly intelligent and easy to train. They are also affectionate, and their feeling are easily hurt, so they don’t respond well to harsh treatment. A Bernese wants to be a part of the family, so undesirable behavior can be a result of being left alone too long. Bernese Mountain Dogs are generally healthy dogs with a life expectancy of 7-10 years.
