About The Club

The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of the Finger Lakes (BMDCFL) was established in 1979. We cover the Finger Lakes region of New York State and Northern Pennsylvania. We provide advocacy, education, and social gatherings while promoting standards and striving for the betterment of the Bernese Mountain Dog.

Members consist of pet owners, breeders, and those actively involved in competition in confirmation, obedience, rally, draft and therapy work.

BMDCFL hosts four meetings and several special events throughout the year. Our events promote comradery and support among our Berners’ families. We welcome everyone who has a love for the Bernese Mountain Dog. In addition, we publish a newsletter, BLASSAI NEWS, to keep everyone informed of upcoming activities and events.

Thank you for visiting BMDCFL and we look forward to meeting you and your beloved Berners soon!! Please feel free to join us on Facebook where we welcome your Bernese photos!!!

Our Mission

c) Educating the public as to the joys and responsibilities of owning a purebred dog

d) Protecting and advance the interests of the breed, and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows and obedience trials

e) Conducting sanctioned matches, specialty shows and obedience trials under the rules of the American Kennel Club
