News - Silverpastori Bergamascos


Disclaimer of Information

Since Introducing the Bergamasco Sheepdog in 1995, the information on my website has not changed in the past 25 years. Beware of what is written by others on Social Media — there is a lot of misleading information especially regarding the Bergamasco coat and its care.

If you are interested in learning more about the breed please feel free to email or call me and I would be happy to help answer any further questions about our Bergamascos.

Ms Whope Joins the  Therapy Dog International Progam

Whope is 4th Generation Bergamasco, achieving her Grand Champion & Canine Good Citizen title, to the first Bergamasco to attain Silver Metal Status. We were overly excited when Whope became the Poster Dog for the Philadelphia National show in 2018.   Besides her Wonderful Show Career her real talent and happiness is Making Children and People Smile. Whope has been attending the Special Needs Classroom along with her owner Donna for the past two years. Bergamascos are known for their Gentle Nature around children, as well as the elderly. They react according, each of their individual needs.

*Whope will be a asset to the TDI Ambassador Program.

November 2018

National Dog Show — I am honored that my Special Girl Whope, was chosen to represent the Bergamasco Sheepdog. Not only were there numerous Banners throughout the exhibition, she was also featured throughout the Catalog, and a poster of her was given out to all the 100’s of people who visited Saturday & Sunday. Best of all, we now have our very own life size cut-out!

Hopefully within the next few months Whope will have her Therapy Dog License so she can officially do what she loves most — to put smiles on people’s faces! I couldn’t be in this place today without the long time support of all my friends.
