WATCH: Dozens of Bernese mountain dogs played in Silver Springs off-leash park in Calgary on Sunday – Apr 14, 2019

They’re a breed that owners describe as a laidback, good-natured, family pet.

Dozens of Bernese mountain dogs frolicked in Silver Springs off-leash park on Sunday, reportedly as part of an international day celebrating the animal.

Linda Nesset is a member of a group of Bernese owners that gathers weekly in Calgary.

“They are big teddy bears. They’re gentle,” she said. “They do shed a lot, but they’re super loving and loyal.”
