    Bernese mountain dogs are fiercely loyal and attentive dogs. They require a lot of attention as they prefer to be involved in everything. The Bernese mountain dog learns fast, but matures fairly slowly. In fact, Bernese mountain dog puppies take around two years to mature. For this reason, training Bernese mountain dogs is different to other breeds. See the following guide to training and caring for a Bernese mountain dog.
     

    •    When looking for Bernese mountain dogs for sale, always check which, if any, vaccinations the dog has had.  Bernese mountain dog puppies will require certain injections and boosters afterwards to prevent diseases. An adult Bernese mountain dog requires worming every few months, as well as flea treatments. Check with your vet what is needed.

    •    When searching for a Bernese mountain dog for sale, you will also need to buy the correct food for it. High quality meat dog food will be best. This should be a mixture of 30% crude protein, 20% crude fat, and up to 4% fibre.

    •    If you are considering a Bernese mountain dog for sale, you must really be ready to commit. These dogs require constant attention and do not like to be left alone. If you cannot provide this kind of care, you may wish to rethink buying Bernese dogs for sale.

    •    Bernese mountain dog puppies will need to be trained from a young age. As it is a large puppy, it will need to lean the basics as early as possible. This means it knows how to behave without causing any accidental problems. Training should be simple as these dogs love to please their owners. Harsh training methods will not work on this dog breed. You must be sensitive.

    •    Bernese mountain dog puppies should be socialised with other people and dogs as early as you can. They can be very shy later in life if this is not addressed right away.

    •    Exercise is key when training a Bernese mountain dog. They are at their happiest when they get to run around.
