Tragic Event

“The BMDC of GB is aware of the tragic death in November of Tony Harrington, who was known to some of our members. The Club’s sympathies and thoughts are with Tony’s family and friends.

This incident is still being investigated by the Police so the club cannot comment on the circumstances nor anyone nor any dogs who may or may not be implicated in this tragedy. 

If the investigation ultimately concludes that any Bernese Mountain Dog was directly involved in Tony’s death we can only say that this would be completely at odds with the general temperament and long standing reputation of the breed which is normally known for its benevolent character. The Bernese temperament is an important part of our breed and good breeders will always make this the main priority in breeding choices.

The Club will make no further comment on this matter.”
