Does any one have any experience with them? We are looking at getting one but wondered what people who have them would say about them pros and cons.

I have a bernese cross called Riley and he is an amazing dog, very clever, requires a lot of walking. cons would be the hair, jesus christ I have to hoover a lot but wouldn't swap him for anything!

We lost our BMD in September & I still get a bit teary thinking about him.
He was a lovely boy, he rarely barked & was a real family dog.
The downsides are shedding hair (If you are houseproud) & relatively short life span.
We are picking up our BMD puppy tomorrow (weather permitting).smile

Sorry to hear you lost yours but how exciting getting a new puppy. Have you found that they slobber?

They are lovely but I think their life span is on the short side.

They're lovely dogs but they don't live long.

Have a look into the various breed clubs. You need to consider the way such a big dog would fit into your life. Transport etc.
They are prone to some health issues. Parents must be screened for hip and elbow issues.
They need a lot of grooming and don't live all that long.
