Maybe we will just stick with Australian Shepherds.
If the idea of the purchase price spooks you, you'd probably better stay away given that it's likely to be the least of your worries with a Bernese.

We have a standing emergency 'slush fund' of about $3K/dog and that's with labradors. With a Bernese you're likely looking at much higher vet/maintenance bills.

Unless you're able/willing to shell out 3-5K to deal with blown out knees, deteriorating hips or cancer medicine, I'd recommend you steer clear of a Bernese. It's not really fair to you or the dog to buy one and then not be willing to fix it up as things start to go wrong.
