THE BERNESE BREEDERS ASSOCIATION OF GREAT BRITAIN is an independent,
non-profit organisation founded in 1983 by a group of Bernese breeders and enthusiasts in response
to an increasing demand for factual and unbiased information about Bernese Mountain Dogs.
The Association’s aims are to collect and disseminate information to help breeders, owners, potential
owners and all those who seek to widen their knowledge and understand and enjoy this beautiful
breed; to encourage breeders to aim for sound temperament, physical health and to maintain breed
type when planning litters and to promote responsible ownership and give aid when requested for the
benefit and preservation of the Bernese Mountain Dog.
THE BBA INFORMATION SERVICE endeavours to provide information and advice on all
topics associated with Bernese Mountain Dogs and also a variety of other canine related subjects.
If we are unable to help you, we can almost certainly put you in touch with someone who can!
Our range of Bernese related booklets and other publications are sensibly priced to be within
The BBA established BERNESE WELFARE UK in 1986 to help unwanted Bernese and to
give aid to owners going through difficulties. BERNESE WELFARE UK'S RESCUE, REFUGE and REHOMING SERVICE takes in Bernese from anywhere in Great Britain and places those dogs within
our network of experienced foster homes where they are fully assessed within a HOME environment
before placing them with carefully selected families.
