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 100 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.
See the Calendar page for info on upcoming club events. Some events this year will be via Zoom meeting until COVID-19 restrictions again allow in-person meetings.

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.

Watch the BMDCO calendar for specifics of coming events: Monthly board meetings, Berner meet-and-greets, conformation events, carting clinics and much more.
And a friendly reminder, if you haven't already, please submit your membership dues no later than March 31st of each year.
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.
Except for several in-person board meetings at events like our draft tests, our board meetings are held by conference call. If you have business before the board please contact a board member to present your issue or we can add you to the call if you just want to join the fun.
