Are Bernese Mountain dogs good apartment pets?

I am going to have to say no. While I love Bernese Mountain Dogs, they are big and playful and need room to run and use the energy that these dogs have. If you already have the dog and don't plan on spending a long period of time in an apartment I wouldn't get rid of the dog. If you are going to be there for a while, I would consider finding a new home for your dog.

How long is a Bernese mountain dogs lifespan?

The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America did a survey of Bernese owners and found the average age of Berners in 2000 was 7.2 years. Other databases indicate the average lifespan is 6-8 years. This short lifespan is due to the serious health issues this breed faces including cancer (very common), hip, elbow and joint problems, and bloat (gastric torsion). While some Bernese Mountain Dogs can live to 10 or 12 years of age (or longer), just as many die in early adulthood. Given the wonderful temperament of this breed, it is sad that they live such relatively short life. I had one and it lived 11 years old
