Bernese mountn dog drawing by David Shreves (1897-1978) from the collection of the National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside

The Bernese Mountn Dog is a very intelligent and loyal breed of dog. Historically they were bred to help haul heavy loads in mountnous areas and they are noted for their strong working ability. Their size has also resulted in them being regarded as a good guard dog and they can be intimidating, especially when they are in search of game.

Bernese Mountn Dogs were originally bred for herding and livestock herding duties in the Swiss Alps. Although originally bred for herding purposes, the dogs are most well known for their use as a “gundog” or guard dog.

The breed is extremely friendly and intelligent, being trned to become excellent pet dog. It was used by herdsmen in the Alps of Switzerland to control and herd livestock, and a Bernese can easily outwit a shepherd.

The Bernese Mountn Dog was once referred to as the “Shepherd’s Friend”. Their calm nature and their keen sense of hearing and smell make them an ideal guardian and a valued member of any household.

Bernese Mountn Dogs are not very tall dogs, although they do weigh anywhere from 40 to more than 60 pounds (18 to 27 kilograms). They have a thick, black coat and a small, short muzzle. They have a round, wide head, strong jaws, broad forechest and barrel chest, and shoulders that are set well back. The back and hindquarters are set up higher than in other breeds. They have a long, muscular tl that is carried over the back.

Like all working dogs, they have a working temperament and must be trned to work with a person. They need to be well socialized as puppies and to have consistent exercise and regular dly trning. The Bernese has been bred for work for centuries. They are a robust dog, which means that they will have stamina and good bone.

They are highly intelligent dogs and are an ideal companion for anyone. They are good family dogs but not suitable for apartment living as they are generally large and need a good-sized yard.

Bernese Mountn Dog puppies need a little trning to socialize them, as they can be very nervous. They are not only affectionate and friendly, but they are also lively and playful. Their best friends are children who are young enough to play with and not hurt them. They will guard and protect their family and friends, and they are often aggressive with strange dogs, though they can become good family dogs if trned to accept other pets. They are loyal and make devoted companions.

The life expectancy of a Bernese Mountn Dog is between ten and 14 years.


### **Working Dogs**

The following breeds were first bred to d the human in the fields and forests, many are still used for that purpose. Others were bred to work with people or, more often, in competition. There are still some breeds that are bred solely for racing. Other breeds are bred for their ability to work without human assistance, although some people like to watch them perform their chores. Many of these breeds were developed during a long period of time.

All of these breeds must work. The desire to breed for qualities that are not related to working ability and for trts that do not produce desirable offspring are to be deplored. If breeding for working ability is continued, it should be combined with other characteristics. Many breeds that have been developed over time have lost their working ability. Breeds that have lost their working ability have been developed to fit the environment in which they live. Breeds that remn devoted to working ability tend to have good temperaments. Their work often consists of going through a hole in the ground and retrieving objects that are lying in the holes. It is a frly easy task for a dog bred for this task.




This breed is probably best known for its ability to retrieve items that are lost in or near water. It is a ratter, it is not a retriever or hunting dog. Instead, its function is to detect and locate lost items. Though a valuable asset to those who are hunting, this dog is never placed on a leash. If a dog is found on the leash, the owners would be considered irresponsible to those who would purchase their dogs from them. All retriever breeds have some working ability, but, even when it comes to retrieving waterfowl, it is important to be able to find the object, not just retrieve it. If the dog is bred to retrieve food or water, the waterfowl retrieving ability may be considered as the most important to its working ability.

An excellent dog, the Garret ratter is extremely good at detecting lost objects. Many states have laws that permit a person who has lost property, such as a ring or a wallet, to recover the object through this breed. The dog has excellent stamina and stamina is extremely important to this breed, because it must search for objects that are found buried or hidden in the ground. Garret ratters are bred to be hard working and to be good with people.

The only real problem that a Garret ratter may have is that it is sometimes used to lure in game, such as birds or deer, so that the owner can shoot the animal. The fact is that the Garret is not a hunting dog, it is not bred to kill animals. The dog may be used as a lure for people or other dogs who hunt by dogs or dogs used as retrievers, but never as a dog that is trned to kill.

**The Garret is a well-balanced, hardworking dog with a pleasant, confident nature. This dog is trned to retrieve objects.**


Although this is probably a case of the saying "What's in a name?" the real fact is that the name is what people make it. Over the years, various people have given these dogs nicknames, or "monikers." There are a number of names, which many people have given these dogs over the years, that do not mean anything about the breed or where it came from. And they have become attached to them. Among the more popular names include: "Sally", "Sandy", "Kittens", and "Doodle Dog".

In order to find out where the Garret came from and how it got its name, one must go back to the year 1895. At that time, a man named Joseph Garret was working for the U.S. government at the New York City Fish Commission. He received a government paycheck of $30.00 a month and was required to make $200.00 in fines on the fish market every month. To make the extra money, he became a dog catcher for other people. He trapped raccoons, foxes, mink, skunks and groundhogs. He caught them alive and caught them dead. He trapped them by dogs.
