This is one of three portraits I have painted for a client in the United Kingdom. The Bernese Mountain Dog, called in German the Berner Sennenhund, is a large-sized breed of dog, one of the four breeds of Sennenhund-type dogs from the Swiss Alps. Wikipedia

The Bernese Mountain Dog is an extremely versatile working dog used on farms in Switzerland. He was bred to herd cattle, pull carts, and be a watchdog and loyal companion. He is one of four types of Swiss Mountain Dogs, and the only one with long hair. The Bernese Mountain Dog comes from the canton of Bern, hence his name. He’s a large and sturdy animal, with a friendly and calm disposition, and he’s well suited to conformation, obedience, tracking, herding, and carting competitions. This portrait shows his gentle nature and friendly looking eyes.

The muzzle is strong and straight and the nose of this breed is always black. The lips are clean and, as the Bernese Mountain Dog is a dry-mouthed breed, the flews are only slightly developed.  In my painting these characteristics are well defined and true to the breed.
