Overview

ABOUT THE BOOK

Bernese Mountain Dogs are large dogs with strong, sturdy figures and gleaming coats. Although theyre classed as working dogs, their gentle temperament combined with their loyal and affectionate nature make them excellent companion pets.

According to Dog Training Central, it's generally believed that the breed developed from the Mastiff-type dogs introduced to Switzerland by the Romans. They were primarily used as working farm dogs until the beginning of the 20th century, when a decline in their numbers inspired Swiss farmers from the hamlet of Bern to resuscitate the breed.

They were introduced to the United States by Isaac Scheiss in 1926 and were officially recognized by the American Kennel Club until 1937.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Because theyre so eager to please, owners dont usually encounter any significant problems while training a Bernese Mountain Dog. Luckily, this also goes for house training. While its totally expected for any dog to have the occasional accident, adult Bernese Mountain Dogs have large bladders and therefore need to relieve themselves less frequently than other breeds.

Successful house training of any new puppy can is achieved with a combination of clearly defined schedules, consistent boundaries and a healthy dose of patience. Use the eagerness of a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy as the stepping stone to success in this area.

Take your puppy outside to its designated toilet area shortly after meals, after a nap or overnight sleep. He might also need to urinate during exciting play times and occasionally at other times throughout the day. As you spend more time with your dog, youll get to know the warning signs that tell you that your dog needs to go outside.
