About the BMDCNV
In "normal" times:
Annually there are winter walks, picnics or hikes held in each one of the New England states. Each Spring the BMDCNV holds a Regional Specialty Show. Each Fall the Club hosts a Draft Test for the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America. Then there are two very special events: the Spring and Fall Fun Days, with lots of family fun and activities and games for Berner puppies and veterans alike!
Our annual meeting is held in March, April or May. Awards are presented to title holders followed by an educational presentation. Generally there are one or two more activities during the year. A number of other activities privately sponsored by individual members are listed in our newsletter.
Code of Ethics. In keeping with its aim of encouraging the development of excellent Bernese Mountain Dogs, the BMDCNV has adopted this Code of Ethics to promote and foster the highest standards among owners and breeders, and to encourage cooperation in the improvement, advancement, and protection of our breed.
The Bernerblatt. The Bernerblatt, mailed monthly, is included with club membership. It is an informative newsletter chock full of articles about members, Berners, activities, health issues, training tips and more.
New members are always welcome! Please visit our Membership page for more information and an application.
