An exciting new Berner book that will come out in Sept.
The Bernese Mountain Dog
Yesterday and Today
by Silvana Vogel Tedeschi
English Text by Lindy Kunz
This new book gives English-speaking readers the first opportunity to have access to important facts about the breed which have only been available in other languages. The interesting history of the breed is described in great detail. With words and informative illustrations, it is shown how the Standard is to be interpreted, and how the individual traits should be considered in the show ring and in breeding. Particular attention is paid to the distinctive features of the temperament and behaviour of these former farm dogs, showing how their history has molded their character and behavior. The following chapters explain how a puppy develops mentally and physically with good advice on raising and general management, as well as life with the adult Berner today. The last chapter contains information about problems involved in the growth of the skeleton and how these can be influenced by nutrition and proper care of the puppy. The inclusion as an appendix, of the first complete translation of Professor Albert Heim´s text, Die Schweizer Sennenhunde published in 1914, makes this book particularly valuable. It will be the standard work on Bernese Mountain Dogs for many years to come.
