The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, affectionately known as the Swissy, is a large, powerful breed of dog that originated in the Swiss Alps. They are known for their strength, intelligence, and loyalty. They are a working breed, and are often used as guard dogs, herding dogs, and draft dogs. They are also known for their calm and gentle nature, and make excellent family pets. They are a loyal and devoted breed, and are very protective of their family.
You can learn more about this fantastic breed from the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club of America (GSMDCA), of which we are a regional club. We strongly encourage all Swissy owners to join GSMDCA, which offers a variety of benefits, including the tri-annual publication “The SENNtinel” and a frequently published e-newsletter. Sponsorship into GSMDCA can be given by your breeder or members of C&P.
