Greater Swiss Mountain Dog - Guide to Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs

Description: Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs are large, well-muscled, and heavy boned. Their coat is tri-colored, chest is deep and head is large and broad. The true origin of these ancient Alpine dogs is not known for certain, however, the most popular theory is that Swissys are descendants of Mastiff-type dogs the Romans left behind in Switzerland as they traveled north some 2,000 years ago.

The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, recognized as Switzerland's oldest breed, is one of four types of Sennenhund breeds. The others are the Appenzell Cattle Dog, Bernese Mountain Dog and the Entlebuch Cattle Dog. Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs are largest of these types of dogs.

Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs are working farm dogs and were used for herding and guarding. They were also particularly used for pulling heavy carts (drafting). However, by the late 19th century, much of the work carried out by Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs were replaced either by other breeds or by machines. As a result, the numbers of these dogs significantly decreased to the point of believing the breed had become extinct. Dr. Albert Heim of Zurich was a famous dog expert and is credited for reviving the the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog breed in the early 1900s.

Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs were imported to the United States in 1967. This breed was fully recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1995 becoming their 137th breed. Today Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs are mainly used for companion, guard and family dogs.
