Bernese Mountain Dog Puppies Illinois

Why a Bernese Mountain Dog?

The Bernese Mountain Dog is a large, sturdy worker who can stand over 27 inches at the shoulder. The thick, silky, and moderately long coat is tri-colored: jet black, clear white, and rust. The distinctive markings on the coat and face are breed hallmarks and, combined with the intelligent gleam in the dark eyes, add to the Berner’s aura of majestic nobility. A hardy dog who thrives in cold weather, the Berner’s brain and brawn helped him multitask on the farms and pastures of Switzerland.

Berners get along with the entire family and are particularly gentle with children, but they will often become more attached to one lucky human. Berners are imposing but not threatening, and they maintain an aloof dignity with strangers.

Breed History

Bred from crosses of Mastiffs and guard-type breeds, Bernese Mountain Dogs were brought to Switzerland by the Romans 2,000 years ago.

Dietary Needs

A well-balanced diet should contain about 30 percent protein, 20 percent fat, 40 percent carbohydrates, and 10 percent water. Your Berner needs high levels of calcium, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin D3, zinc, copper, manganese, omega 3 fatty acids, and taurine. You can find complete diets designed specifically for the Berner online or through your veterinarian.

Exercise Requirements

Your Berner requires daily exercise—at least three hours per day—to stay fit and trim. If possible, take her out every night before bedtime. This helps burn off excess energy while giving her time to relax. Exercise keeps her mentally alert and physically strong. It also reduces stress, which makes her less likely to develop certain illnesses.

Grooming Tips

Because Bernese Mountain Dogs sheds hair regularly, brush her twice-weekly using a soft bristle brush. Bathe her once monthly, especially if she spends much time outdoors. Use only natural products made without harsh chemicals. This Swiss Mountain Dog is known for its silky coat, Tricolor coat, and double coat.

Training Techniques

Bernese Mountain Dogs need firm guidance and discipline during training sessions. They respond better to rewards than punishment. When teaching commands, use food treats instead of verbal praise. Praise does little good because it doesn't motivate the Bernese Mountain Dogs. Instead, reward positive behavior immediately. Don't wait until the command is performed correctly; give immediate feedback.
