In honor of National Take Your Dog to Work Day, here is our founding partner, Jeff, with his dogs, Tonka and Mack.
Tonka and Mack are Bernese Mountain dogs known for being powerful hard workers. They fall under the mountain dog family alongside Appenzeller Mountain Dog, Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, and Entlebucher Mountain Dog. The Bernese Mountain Dogs were used as farm dogs; guarding and herding cattle in the alpine pastures. The larger dogs of their breed were used to pull carts to accompany the alpine headers and dairymen. They can stand over 27inches at shoulder length and have thick tricolored coats which benefit them greatly in the winter. Don’t let their size fool you, they are wonderful family dogs who want nothing but to give and receive affection.
