Come One - Come All

Monthly BMDCO Board Meetings

Attending board meetings is a great way to keep up on club business and to put faces to the names of board members. Our meeting agenda may be packed full, yet we also have a doggone good time in the process.

BMDCO board meetings are always open for members to attend. They are normally the second Wednesday of the month at Village Inn Bridgeport (Tigard). We meet at 6:30 p.m. to order dinner and socialize. The actual meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. We are seated in one of the private dining areas, so ask the host where to find us.

Stay in Touch!

Join BMDCO Yahoo Group

The BMDCO Group Yahoo list includes all current members. Annual dues were due Jan. 1, so be sure to renew your membership to stay on this list. 

Watch your email for an invitation to join this list if you don’t already belong. Feel free to ignore the email should you not wish to join.

The BMDCO Yahoo Group enables us do outreach for volunteers, promote club events and swap wisdom about living with Berners. Members frequently seek input into problem behaviors, perplexing health issues, etc. This online forum is a place to pass on BMD swag we can no longer use.

The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Oregon (BMDCO) was established in 1983 to protect and support the needs of Bernese Mountain Dogs. We proudly boast a membership of over 150 people, with more joining all the time.

New members are always welcome - you needn’t own a Bernese Mountain Dog to belong to the club.

Get the Poop on

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.
