Bernese Mountain Dog History

The Bernese Mountain Dog is one of the four mountain dog breeds, who can trace its origins back to Switzerland, more precisely to Bern. It is thought that the ancient breed, the Molosser while spreading out in the entire world, it also got to the Swiss Alps and developed a variety of Mastiff-type of breeds, including the Bernese Mountain Dog.

During the first century, the dogs that the Romans brought to the area had been naturally cross-bred with the local dogs, creating the four mountain dog breeds. Right after its initial creation, the Bernese Mountain Dog served many purposes helping people, pulling carts, standing watch, guarding, accompanying livestock, and providing companionship to their fellow humans. Initially, the breed’s most appreciated ability was that the dog could pull many times their own weight, occasionally up to the mountains, as drafting dogs, thanks to their muscular and broad hindquarters generating immense strength. They were considered the ultimate all-around farm dog.

The need for strong dogs who could herd cattle and pull carts have dwindled because of the fact, that by the middle of the 1880s, only 36% of the Swiss population worked on farms, in the agricultural sector. It was feared that the Bernese Mountain Dog will suffer severe consequences like extinction due to neglect and lack of need. Thanks to a handful of enthusiasts and breeders, a painstaking effort has started with the intention of reviving the breed and saving it from extinction. In 1902, the Swiss dog club sponsored a show at Ostermundigen, which drew more attention to the mountain dog breeds, thus to the Bernese Mountain Dog too. Two years after that, the breed had a huge step forward at an international dog show in Bern, where the Bernese Mountain Dog was included in the mountain dog category. A club named “Berna” was even founded in 1907, for the different mountain dog breeders and for their purebred dogs. This club was formed under the leadership of Professor Albert Heim, probably the most renewed and respected canine scientist of his generation in Europe. After that, the Swiss Kennel Club recognized the breed first. During World War I, dog breeding fell out of the most important priorities, but after that, the Bernese Mountain Dog was exported firstly to the Netherlands then to the United States of America. The breed got the United Kingdom too, where the first litter was born in 1936. One year after that, in 1937, the AKC (American Kennel Club) gave the breed recognition and grouped them within their Working Class. But their full member club recognition came later, in 1981. Sadly, after the Second World War, the Bernese Mountain Dog population have faced another decrease, but fortunately, the American breeders quickly revived and restored their population numbers.

Nowadays, the Bernese Mountain Dog is mostly kept as a family companion and became a really popular choice for families with children, thanks to the fact that the breed has a really good nature with a reliable, stable, and trustworthy temperament. Today, the breed is considered to be a popular one, all around the world.
