Bernese Mountain Dog Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 4/3/2007
Are "freckles" okay on the white of a Berner muzzle our would this disqualify a dog from a show? Also-what is the most desired white pattern on the muzzle and on the blaze between the eyes as far as show standards? (width, length, pattern etc.)

7/20/09 Freckles are fine on the muzzle. There isn't any problem with that for showing. But freckles on the chest are not, they are a Minor fault. The white on the face is not standardized. But it can not go pass the eyes or go past the corner of the mouth. symmetry is good. But I have seen dogs with no white on one side of the face win best of breed. Markings are the icing on the cake. They should not be viewed over movement and structure. Bernadette
