The Bernese Mountain Dog is another gentle giant known for its lethargic demeanor. They usually weigh about 86-106 pounds and stand at 25-28 inches. Though they don’t require a lot of exercise, they’re definitely not apartment dogs. They need a lot of space, and a yard is the perfect setting for training and providing light activity.  Bernese Mountain Dogs can be big couch potatoes, so they need you to motivate them and get them out and going. They’re the perfect chill-and-put-your-feet-up type of dog — just don’t let them get too lazy.  It’s been a long while, but they were actually known for helping their owners round up cattle and livestock. It’s only recently that they’ve become so domesticated.
