January 18 & 19, 2014
Meet the Breed at the Rose City Classic Dog Show
Portland Expo Center
April 12 & 13, 2014
Northwest Pet and Companion Fair
Portland Expo Center
We'll be asking for volunteers to bring dogs and to man (woman?) the booth at both events.
These are great opportunities to educate the public about the Berner breed.
The dog show charges admission, but we should be able to get volunteers in for free.
The Pet Fair is free admission and a fun event to attend with your dog, even if you're not volunteering in the booth. Both events charge for parking.

LOOKING FOR A PUPPY? We have a great Puppy Buyer's Toolkit to assist you in being an informed buyer and to guide you to a respectable breeder that is right for you !! This checklist enables you to ask the breeders some very important questions that will help you determine the quality of your new puppy and the important relationship that you can have with your breeder after you bring your puppy home. It also points out some "red flags" to help steer you away from the undesirable puppy mills and backyard breeders. Click here for Checklist. It would also be to your benefit to request a FREE Puppy Buyer's Guide Packet from our public education coordinator to use in tandem with this checklist.
BREEDERS We have generated a list of Breeders that are members of the BMDCO and/or our sister club, the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Greater Seattle (BMDCGS). These breeders have met certain qualifications and follow a defined code of conduct. It is important to know that we do NOT endorse, inspect, guarantee, or otherwise approve any particular breeder(s). This list is offered to you as an additional tool to help you get the quality puppy you desire. For more helpful tools in determining if the Bernese Mountain Dog is the right dog for you, please visit our Puppies page.
The BMDCO is proud to offer a variety of Events for club members which include draft clinics and tests, picnics, walks and our annual banquet/auction. We currently are working to add more activities to the calendar for our members to participate in.
Would you like to be a Volunteer? We always need people to help us out at events. Please take a moment to fill out our survey so we can match your interests with volunteer opportunities.
