Bernese Mountain Dogs

1. SIZE. Berners are very strong and are heavy boned. Size tops it all off, a lot of people would rather prefer a dog that is large but agile and not as compact. (Greyhounds, Salukis, etc)

2. Life span. Berners don't live that long, unfortunately. Most live to be 8 or 9, but if bought from a responsible, ethical breeder, they can live to be 10 or even 11.

3. Cancer, Bernese Mountain dogs have one of the highest cancer rates of most dog breeds.

4. Ability to train.

"Yes, I pooped on your Great Grandfather's rug. Yes, I know you've been working on housebreaking me for the past month. But you see, I don't feel like pooping on the grass today."

Not to mention how a lot of Berners are stubborn at times...





"....FIDO, COME!!"

..........*walks away*

5. HAIR! When a Berner's not going through blowcoat, you will see a thin layer of black hair all over the house. One Berner is equivalent to one daily vacuuming.
