The Links Page

The Pandemic meant that in 2020 and 2021 all events were cancelled. For the team, that also meant that no funds were raised for charity and other deserving causes.
Happily things appear to be starting to get back to normal this year.
While the Pandemic may seem to be in decline, some event organisers are still being understandably cautious about the viability of their shows because of the risk of a flare up.
The first tranch of events are now on the Carting Calendar

Having previously had a bitch who bloated (but fortunately survived, and lived to a good age) we felt that the information contained in the following link was very helpful, particularly for those who haven't encountered this dreadful, life threatening condition, and therefore we decided to make it available to visitors to this website in the hope that it might save a life.
Quick Reference Guide for Bloat

The STARTING CARTING page is an ongoing project, and will be periodically expanded and updated.
This website was originally created in February 1998 as a 'homepage' by Pete & Wendy Garrard of the Midland Bernese Carters, but was moved to its current URL in April 2000, as the MIDLAND BERNESE CARTERS Website and is periodically updated with new information. Our thanks to Danielle Green for giving her permission for us to adapt her original Bernese Cartoon sketches.

Please note that this is principally a carting website, and while we're happy to answer questions about living with Bernese, problems, training, carting and so on, we're sorry, but we're not able to help with enquiries regarding breeding or puppies.
Before considering whether or not you want a Bernese, we would suggest that you research them thoroughly, for which a recommended starting point might be the Bernese Breeders Association, whose link follows.

If you feel that you may wish to consider re-homing a Bernese Mountain Dog instead, then a lot of useful information is available on [Dog and Cart]
