About the Club

The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of the Finger Lakes was established in 1979
We cover a relatively large region of New York State and Pennsylvania. Our membership consists of approximately forty members with general membership meetings conducted four times a year during scheduled AKC events. We publish our newsletter, Blassi-News, to keep all members informed of upcoming activities and events and to document meeting minutes.

The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of the Finger Lakes depends solely on donations and volunteers to continue providing activities and Rescue/Rehome Services. Donations are very much appreciated. Feel free to specify if the donation is to be used for General Club Funding or Rescue and Rehoming.

Checks should be made out to BMDCFL and mailed to:

539 County Road B
Farmington, NY 14425

We support the entry of BMDs by offering trophies and hospitality, on Saturday during the Wine Country Circuit Show. This show is held at Sampson Park in Romulus, New York, in September.

"Bernerfest" is held every June, at Myers Park, North Lansing. It is a wonderful opportunity for club members and guests who share similar interests in the BMD, to get together and enjoy a full day of picnicking and fun activities. Other events and opportunities to get together happen periodically.

We welcome anyone who loves Bernese to consider joining our club as a Member. We also have a non-voting status of Associate Member for those interested in joining but who do not have 2 sponsors."
