Size
Appearance
This is best known of the Swiss mountain dogs, or sennenhunds, and it can be readily distinguished from the other varieties by its coat. This is long and slightly wavy in appearance, without being curly. In terms of colouration and markings it is identical to the other forms. A white blaze on the head extending between the eyes, and a white chest marking as a cross, are essential characteristics. White paws and white tip to the tail. These affectionate and responsive dogs make good family pets if they have adequate exercise.
