The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Oregon (BMDCO) is made up of Berner lovers from all walks of life: breeders, pet owners, conformation exhibitors and judges, obedience, drafting, tracking, agility and herding competitors, those who love hiking, skiing and camping, and those who just love snuggling with their Berners on the couch.

What we all share is dedication to preserving the integrity of the breed. We invite you join us!
