The Greater Swiss Mountain
Dog is a large, strong, muscular, draft dog.
The body is slightly longer than it is tall.
The front legs are straight and strong with
rounded, compact feet. The chest is broad
and deep. The head is large with a broad,
flat skull and slight stop.
The color of the eyes may vary
from hazel to chestnut. The muzzle is blunt, and
the nose and lips must always be black. The pendant,
medium-sized ears are triangular. The tip of the
tail, a blaze on the muzzle and a large marking
on the chest are white. A white collar or patches
on the neck are permitted.
GSMD has a beautiful tri-color
double coat (black with rich rust and white markings).
The outer coat is lined with a dense undercoat.
Rust markings include a spot over each eye, rust
on the cheeks, and on either side of the chest.
The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog
is steady, willing, loyal, loving, eager to please,
watchful and protective, but not aggressive. They
are good with children and other pets and are not
generally dog aggressive. The Swissy would quickly
warm up to those the family accepts. An excellent,
territorial, courageous, alert watchdog that will
bark at strange noises and intruders. It prefers
to be with his people all the time. They are slow
to mature, both physically and mentally.
They will do okay in an apartment
with a small yard if sufficiently exercised. They
prefer cool climates.
The dog’s need for moderate
exercise can be met by long, daily walks.
This average shedder is easy to
groom. Regular brushing should suffice.
The GSMD is prone to bloat, epilepsy,
digestive disorders, metabolic bone diseases and
hip dysplasia. Many Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs
have distichiasis, a condition in which extra eyelashes
grow along the edge of the eyelid. These extra lashes
can curl inward and scratch the eye. Though the
condition may not pose any problem, it sometimes
requires surgical correction.
About 10-11 years.

flawlessly. I can't remember a time when
I was any more proud."
