About this title


This new book is a true celebration of the centuries-old Bernese Mountain Dog. Written from a global perspective, it relates the breed's origins as a reliable Swiss farm dog and traces its modern development as a top show contender, performance dog and treasured companion for the entire family. The Standard is analyzed in detail and the entire book is beautifully illustrated with numerous lovely photos in both black and white and color -- a true "must have."

From the Inside Flap:

The Bernese Mountain Dog Today The Bernese Mountain Dog, a sturdy, all-purpose farm dog, was originally bred in Switzerland. One of its jobs was herding cattle, but its main use was as a draught dog, harnessed to a small cart taking milk and cheese to the market. Today, the Bernese Mountain Dog is still used for draught work, although mainly for recreational purposes. The breed has also taken its place as an impressive show dog, and its kind, good-natured character makes it a devoted family dog. In this comprehensive book of the breed, the author examines the history of the Bernese and its spread around the world. Detailed information is given on caring for the breed, with special guidance on feeding, and training. There is an in-depth analysis of the Breed Standard, with coverage on showing and judging. Particular emphasis is placed on breeding, looking at the principles of breeding as well as the genetic defects within the breed. This is enhanced with significant scientific data which has been accumulated from worldwide sources — making the book a unique reference. Illustrated with top-quality colour and black and white photographs, this is essential reading for all Bernese Mountain Dog enthusiasts.
