The Bernese Mountain Dog is a large-sized breed of dog. Berners get along with the entire family and are particularly gentle with children, but they will often become more attached to one lucky human. Bernese are likely to get along with other pets if they are brought up with them, but some members of the breed have a stronger prey drive than others. The Bernese mountain dog is an easygoing, calm family companion. It is sensitive, loyal and extremely devoted. Its expression is gentle, and its coloring is striking.
