Big, thick coated dogs. However, I've heard they have typically have short life spans.
Yeah, that's what's steered me away from them a couple of times. 7-10 years is a pretty common run and the couple we're close friends with that had one lost theirs at 3.

Cancer is extremely common and they are just so thickly built that their joints tend to fail them as well.

I've started doing some research into Appenzellers; very similar markings but in a lab-style body. It's another sennenhund but a pretty rare one. They look like they're not as user-friendly as the Berners are though and definitely won't be the 90 lber that the Bernese will be.

Damn shame about the health issues with the Bernese or it would be a pretty near perfect dog.
