What are Bernese mountain dogs good for?
They were originally bred to pull large loads on carts, therefore; their large build, long powerful legs, and great strength. They continue to be used for that today, but are one of the best family pets i have ever had. I seriously believe there good for anything, including babysitting!
I have a Bernese mountain dog and a Bernese Mountain Dog crossed with a German Shepard. They play very well together. The Bernese has a lovely temperament and gets on well with any dog. The Bernese cross is not good with any dog except my Bernese. The Bernese Cross is brilliant with people and a very affectionate dog. I have them both from puppies and they were raised together which I think has helped.
