If you wish to discuss any aspect of the breed, the club, or potential ownership of a Bernese, please use one of the following contacts.
Email general queries to firstname.lastname@example.org from where they will be passed to the most appropriate person for reply and/or raising at general committee and the most appropriate person will reply.
If you are enquiring about Bernese Puppies please include your full name, area and telephone number (preferably a landline) it is always much better to speak to you directly in a friendly phone call and discuss the Bernese and your existing knowledge and lifestyle than try to cover everything by email.
