FOOD

They are one of those who gains up obesity very fast so it's important to divide their meals into two l. You need to divide their meal between two halves and should not cross their diet at any cost. Serve them with two cups to three cups of food a day. Because overfeeding them can create a major problem and you may need to consult the doctor.

You have to divide the meal of your dog according to their body needs so it's important for you to analyze their body demand. One more important thing about a pet is that never feed them with human food because that can be toxic for their body and you may need a doctor.

TRAINING:

Training them is very easy you won't have to run after them to teach something because they are very intelligent and smart to understand anything. Remember to train them when they are young because training them as a grown-up will be very difficult. They need regular exercise and obedience classes. House training them is a bit difficult but you should make sure to give them crate training as well because that will make them mentally strong. Their natural energy should be burned so that they don't get bored, obese and don't react destructively. They cannot bear harsh training as that can make them fearful. You should take special care of obedience training.

BATHING:

They need to take bath at regular intervals. Their nails should be trimmed every 2 weeks so that it doesn't hurt them. They should be brushing teeth at least 2 to 3 times. Another important thing which you should keep in mind while washing your pet is that you should dry their ear well so that there lies no chance of fungal or any other infection.

HOW TO SELECT YOUR BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOG-

There are two most important things you should keep in mind if you are planning to buy a Bernese mountain dog.
First and the most important thing is to approach a reputed breeder because if you are not doing that remember you are on the verge of getting trapped and will be fooled out with a dog of the different breed. No doubt, that there are many beautiful dogs which will give you an illusion of being a Bernese mountain dog but as we know looks is not all that is needed in a pet. So choose your breeder wisely and smartly. Try not getting fooled up from the fake breeders. Last but not the least choose the breeder with your area of interest.

The second thing I believe comes as being an important point of concern is the quality of pedigree and remember only a reputed or a good breeder will only know what is pedigree. Actually quality pedigree means what kind of parents, grandparents and ancestor that particular pet had, because through that only you will understand the abilities, temperament and health of that pet, as almost the same traits are passed as hereditary. Basically track record of a quality pup is very important.

Now what mostly happens is that at times we confuse the two important terms PEDIGREE & PUPPY'S REGISTRATION but they are too different. Through pedigree, a reputed breeder can tell you what qualities the pet must have inherited but through registration papers, you identify who are the parents and ancestors of the pup but they will not tell you about the qualities.
