The Bernese Mountain Dog is an alert and good-natured breed. Due to their working background, they love to learn new tricks. Because of their size, dogs should be taught obedience from an early age to make them great companions. Their instinctive desire to protect and work on the farm is reflected today: the Bernese Mountain Hand perfectly guards the house and even better drives the herd and carries weights. They demonstrate the ability to carry weights at the popular karting competitions among owners, in which not only the ability to carry a cart but also the ability to drive it is evaluated. Even as a pet, the Bernese Mountain Dog will not give up physical work and other activities. They are so eager to please you!
