Our Mission:

The Bernese Mountain Dog Vitality Project is working to recreate the Bernese Mountain Dog by retaining type and temperament but with increased longevity, improved vitality, and overall improved health.

Running Bernese Mountain Dog.

We are a group of Bernese Mountain Dog owners and breeders who have decided to step outside the box and seek an unconventional solution to the many health problems and short life span that plague this breed. By breeding out to other breeds and then back to the Bernese Mountain Dog, we seek to improve vitality and longevity while maintaining the essence of this breed we love. Each parent is selected for health and temperament, and every puppy from every litter is tracked for its entire life.
