I spent a few days together with these beautiful dogs.
In 2005, the Barry Foundation took over the breeding kennels from the Holy Order of the Great Saint Bernard Monastery together with the kennel’s famous Saint Bernard dogs. Since then, the foundation has been the owner of the world’s oldest breeding centre for the Swiss national dog.
The Barry Foundation was named in honour of “Barry”, the legendary avalanche dog. Its responsibility is to ensure the continued management of the over three-century old breeding kennels at their place of origin and the preservation of the special type of hospice Saint Bernard dog.
