ABOUT OUR CLUB
The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Victoria Inc. (BMDCV) was formed in response to the growing popularity of the breed in both Victoria and Australia. The club has been an important meeting place for Bernese Mountain Dog owners and breeders alike, and provides a valuable site for breed discussion, advice, information and above all: FUN. Each year the BMDCV has enjoyed many berner fun days with trips to the snow in homage of our breed’s Swiss heritage, seaside frolicking at Brighton beaches, and scenic tours of Kew and Emerald Lake Park. A highlight of the year is always the club’s annual Christmas Party that sees many enthusiastic berners and their owners competing in the Egg and Spoon race, sack race challenge, obedience game, (and yes, this was a hotly competitive event as berners can be very smart!) and many more.
Currently the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Victoria Inc. boasts the honour of being the largest club in Australia to regularly host a Championship Specialty Dog Show. This event brings together up to 100 Bernese Mountain Dogs from across the nation, all competing for the illustrious title of Best In Show.
