10. Bernese Mountain Dog

We can thank the Swiss for many great things: fine chocolate, luxury watches, and the Bernese Mountain Dog. This dog has become extremely popular throughout the years, recognizable because of its affectionate personality and keen intelligence.

Regal-looking with its tri-coloured, silky long fur, the Bernese Mountain Dog is a true outdoors dog that, as its name might imply, fares well in cold weather. Ever patient and loyal, this large dog breed would make a great addition to any family with children.
