Bernese Mountain Dog Club


The Best Book in English on Bernese!

​Silvana Vogel Tedeschi's The Bernese Mountain Dog: Yesterday and Today

"The Bernese Mountain Dog: Yesterday and Today earns its rightful status as a first-rate owner's manual replete with all the usual topics you would expect to find in a guidebook about dogs, while supplying the American fancier discerning breeder, and judge with invaluable information never before available to an English-speaking audience. The breadth of research and proven expertise with which this book is written is enough to place it atop the cartload of Berner publications. But this book is so much more than a reference tool. Italian breeder and author Silvana Vogel Tedeschi infuses this impressive work with an affectionate, passionate, and holistic vision of the grandeur of this beautiful breed as it was imagined by its Swiss founders."
