Welcome to the Berner-Garde Foundation Database.
This collection of information is the heart and soul of Berner-Garde.
A year ago, The Berner-Garde board made a determination to totally
revamp the database technology. It was a huge project that cost a
moderate amount of money and lots of time and effort.
Basically we have moved the database to higher capacity technology and made it
directly available via a web based application.That means that at anytime,
anyone can view the database. And I'm talking about the CURRENT database, that
all of our operators update directly.
For those of you who are return visitors to this website, you will notice many
many changes. The format is certainly different but most importantly, all of
the information contained in the database is now available for your review.
While we cannot provide instant modifications to information you provide
on-line, we hope that you will agree that the changes made are a huge step in
the direction of information sharing. Our hope is that seeing the database in
its entirety, you will be compelled to not only update, but to correct and add
information that is missing. Only with complete data can we provide the
information necessary for researchers to adequately study our beloved Bernese
Mountain Dogs and their genetic diseases.
Thank you for visiting our website. If you have any questions or concerns
please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the trustees.
