Schedule: Bernese Schedule 2021 (v2)

❗❗UPDATE July 28th 2020❗❗

Unfortunately with the current restrictions and density limits spectators or anyone not directly involved in the show cannot attend our show. We apologise to those who wished to come and meet breeders, but unfortunately we cannot accommodate you at this time. We hope to meet you at a future event when restrictions have further eased.


❗❗UPDATE June 2020❗❗

With restrictions in Victoria limiting us to outside events of up to 10 people, and the threat of Covid-19 still present, we are keeping all events small and only for our current financial members for the time being with strict RSVP, until otherwise advised by the State Government and Dogs Victoria.

We know this may be frustrating to members of the public at this time, but we appreciate your understanding, and will advise you when public events are once again available.



Dear Members,

I hope you are all well and coping with our current, stressful times.

With the Covid-19 pandemic gripping the nation, a leisurely stroll with our beloved Bernese is exactly what is needed – however per the information below sent from our Governing Body, Dogs Victoria, we have been advised to cancel all upcoming events of large gatherings until we receive further advice in April. Sadly our walk scheduled for March in Mt Evelyn is definitely cancelled, however we will hopefully reschedule this for a later date as it is a lovely venue and walk. We apologise for the late notice.

As many would have seen on our Facebook page the Dog Lovers Show in May has been moved to November. Our events for April onwards will all be advised either by email and/or social media if they are going ahead or changed.

We encourage you in the meantime to interact on the BMDCV Members Forum – show us what you’ve been getting up to with your gorgeous dogs! Go for a walk somewhere you feel safe in a large, open space and post pics of your adventures.

In stressful times like these we should reach out where we can and we encourage you to do so with each other or the members of the committee.

Please follow all government and health department directives, but make sure you are practicing self care and taking time for yourself, your loved ones, and your pets.

Hopefully with the current measures being put in place we can all work together as a nation to stop the spread of this disease and get back to our normal routines as soon as possible.

All committee members contact details were listed in our last newsletter if you wish to reach out to us. Thanks Lynney for doing such a great job by the way!

Hopefully we will all see each other again very soon.


Best Regards,

Sheridan Holmes
BMDCV Presiden
