​Calendar of Events

Watch the BMDCO calendar for specifics of coming events: Monthly board meetings, Berner meet-and-greets, conformation events, carting clinics and much more.

Remember to Update Berner-Garde! 

Please update Berner Garde when you get a new pup or rescue dog - also when you have lost one of your beloved companions. 

You can note certificates, titles, health issues, date of death, cause of death, temperament concerns, number of litters and even studies entered. Photos are always a plus! 

Help us promote long, healthy lifespans in Berners! Contribute to the Berner-Garde Foundation database so that we can track and, hopefully reduce, the inherited health issues of the breed.

Celebrate Berner Friends World Wide

Join us in celebrating Bernese Friends World Wide. Our goal? To bring attention to the breed and their care by getting Berners out in groups on the same weekend all over the world. Last year over 2000 Berners walked that weekend for the event. Let’s help break the record!

Dress for a 3-mile hike/walk along flat and gently rolling trails. The dogs will have a chance to play in the Sandy River, so bring your dog towels! Remember water for the walk in and out. Feel free to bring snacks for you and your dog.
