The Bernese's coat is soft and thick, quite dense, and its fur tends to shed more often. The dogs of this breed are tricolor: black on the back, brown on the paws and may have a white belly, in addition to a very characteristic white mask. As it is a typical dog from cold regions, its fur can fall out a lot when it lives in Brazil, especially in the summer and spring seasons, when it must be brushed at least every two days.
Because of its dense coat, the Bernese montain dog can have a number of skin problems, especially with regard to fungi. When poorly dried, their skin tends to attract parasites of different natures, causing problems that are sometimes difficult to detect at home because of their abundance of hair. That's why you need to brush these puppies quite regularly and make sure they've dried off well after bathing. In addition, they like open spaces to exercise. Despite being a quiet dog, he is big and needs to exercise and strengthen his muscles.
