Bernie is a very loving dog who only wants to please his caregiver. He is very well trained: he sits, heels, stays, stays out of the kitchen, and doesn’t get up on furniture or beds. Bernie does not come inside or go outside the house without being given permission first (see the video below). He is also crate trained, housebroken and walks well on leash.

As his main caregiver, Bernie is constantly and consistently within 2 feet of me. He is very nervous with strangers. Bernie needs a strong owner who can give him the reassurance that he will be cared for. I take Bernie to work with me and he is perfectly content to sit at my feet in exchange for a few head rubs and chin scratches. On the weekends, he enjoys being outside in my front yard and getting a lot of attention from passersby who talk to him over the fence.

Bernie has shown some dominant behavior toward other dogs, but completely ignores the dogs next door. He would do really great in a home with someone who wants a best friend companion to take on runs and walks with and to watch tv with. Bernie has not been introduced to cats or children while in my care.
