Bernese Mountain Dog

The Bernese Mountain Dog (German: Berner Sennenhund) is one of the four breeds of mountain dogs from the Swiss Alps. Bernese are outdoor dogs at heart, though well-behaved in the house; they need activity and exercise. They generally do well with children, as they are very affectionate and patient. Berners are imposing but not threatening, and they maintain an aloof dignity with strangers.

Great Dane

The Great Dane is a large German dog known for its giant size. They are known for seeking physical affection with their owners, and the breed is often referred to as a "gentle giant". The Dane is a very gentle and loving animal and with the proper care and training is great around children, especially when being raised with them.


A powerfully large Hungarian flock guardian covered in profuse white cords from head to tail, the Komondor is among the world’s most recognizable breeds. The Komondor is affectionate with its family and very good with other family pets, often very protective over them. They aren’t, however, well-suited for apartment life and prefer to have lots of room to run and burn off energy.

Old English Sheepdog

The breed standards describe the ideal Old English Sheepdog as never being nervous or aggressive. They are intelligent, social and adaptable. With proper exercise and training, they are perfectly comfortable with a suburban or urban lifestyle.

Irish Wolfhound

The Irish Wolfhound is, on average, the tallest dog breed in the world. Wolfhounds are generally introverted, intelligent, easygoing, quiet and reserved in character. They often create a strong bond with their family and they are relatively easy to train.
