The Perfect Berner

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 temperaments and behavior of these former farm dogs, showing how their history has molded their character and behavior.
