Bernese Mountain dogs are working dogs with a history of farm work in their homeland, where they guard livestock, drive cattle, and pull carts of wares. Their Swiss name, Berner Sennenhund, refers to the canton Bern, where they were developed, and the Swiss stockman, the Senn or Senner, who drives the cattle to the Alps for summer mountain grazing. The Sennenhund is the dog accompanying the Senner on the alpine journeys. Today Bernese Mountain Dogs are valued as loyal companions, therapy dogs, and watch dogs on farms and in cities. 

The Bernese Mountain Dog was developed as a companion dog and does best when integrated into a family's home and lifestyle. These dogs are often very dependent on their owners.  A new owner can count on six months of time to be devoted to training their new dog.  The use of an ample sized dog crate placed in a cool, quiet place acts to safely train a puppy when the owner cannot pay attention. A dog crate will prevent destructive habits from developing and potentially can save a dog's life. Puppies should not be left unattended for long hours. The early development of a good working relationship and trust between the dog and owner will lead to a rewarding lifetime together. 

The Berner male weighs anywhere from 80-130 lbs, mature females from 60-110 lbs. The breed is not well suited to environments or owners where exercise is not possible or convenient. Exercise requirements for the breed are somewhat variable, depending on the individual dog's temperament and energy level. A minimum of 30 minutes of exercise per day and several trips outside to investigate the environment will keep most Berners in reasonable condition. Puppies should not be forced to exercise long periods nor should a normally developing puppy be kept from walking or running under safe, supervised conditions. Puppies should not be allowed to roughhouse with large dogs as permanent injury to growing bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments is apt to occur. Berners should never be tied outdoors. Owners without large, fenced property should spend the necessary exercise time with their dog on leash while in training.
