The Blue Ridge Bernese Mountain Dog Club (BRBMDC) is an official Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America (BMDCA) Regional Club.
The club consists of a wide diversity of members stretching across North Carolina from the Outer Banks to the Blue Ridge Mountains as well as the surrounding states. We all share a love of Bernese Mountain Dogs (BMDs) and enjoy getting together with our dogs at various club activities across the state.
The Blue Ridge Bernese Mountain Dog Club is dedicated to raising public awareness of the Bernese Mountain Dog and responsible ownership. Some of our members are novice BMD owners, some have had many Berners over the years, and others are breeders, trainers, veterinarians or people who have been associated with this breed for many years. We encourage prospective owners to come to our events, ask questions, and take advantage of the knowledge and support available to them.
The BRBMDC is particularly active in supporting BMD Rescue. Please visit the Re-Homing or Adoption pages for more information.
