Bernese News 11th October 2019





Thanks for your sportsmanship. The breed quality in the UK is very similar to what I’m used to. Variation in type not as much as wrong body proportions, some too low to ground, another problem is upright shoulders and lack of angulation behind. The breed is such a striking one. Please look into these problems.
