Bernese Mountain Dog


Original Works of art

Group: Working
Breed Family: Bernese Mountain Dog

The Bernese Mountain Dog is known in its native Switzerland as the Berner Sennenhund, which literally translated means Bernese Alpine Herdsmen's Dog. Their ancestors are thought to have been first brought to Switzerland more than 2,000 years ago by invading Roman soldiers. The Bernese Mountain Dogs have historically worked as drovers, draft dogs and watchdogs in the farmlands of the canton of Berne.
