A hard-worker, the Bernese Mountain Dog is extremely good-mannered, affectionate, intelligent and eager to please. They can be goofy when they play and is a true family dog. They love children of all ages and love to be a part of the family. The Bernese Mountain Dog loves to learn and is easily trainable thanks to their working dog genes.
