How Long Do BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOGS LIVE FOR?

How long do they live for and only answer this if you had one or knew someone who had one. Dont tell me something you googled online. And if yours had passed what was the cause?

My sister had one – they are considered to be a large to giant breed and may only live to about 10 yrs. I think my sister’s dog was about 8 or 9 yrs old when he died.

    My sister in law had one.. 6 years old.. died from bloat. Pretty common for the big dogs such as Great Danes… have that problem as well.

    Bernese live on average 7-8 years. I breed, train and show Bernese.

    BMD’s are my favorite breed of all time. they usually live til about 8, on the shorter side for larger dogs.

    Greater Swiss Mountain dogs look like a cross between a BMD and a Rottweiler and tend to live a little longer (10-11 years). Plus they need much less monthly grooming.

    I had a bernese cross for 14 years( I had to get her put down 3 weeks ago), sadly dogs as big as this don’t live as long as smaller dogs but here is my advice just enjoy him or her for you never know when his/her day might be her last, trust me just don’t think about it like that.
