The Berner-Garde Foundation was established to collect, maintain, and disseminate information about genetic diseases observed in the Bernese Mountain Dog. The database contains information which has been compiled over many years from voluntary submissions of data from owners and from other public sources of information. The information in the Berner-Garde database is available online to owners, breeders, veterinarians, and researchers who are working to reduce genetic disease in the Bernese Mountain Dog. The Berner-Garde Foundation also supports research studies aimed at health problems found in Bernese Mountain Dogs.
