When it was founded in January 2005, the Barry Foundation took over the kennels and the breeding programme of the famous St. Bernard dogs from the pass that gave them their name from the Congregation of canons of the Great Saint Bernard.

Since then, the foundation has owned the world’s oldest breeding programme for the Swiss national dog. The non-profit organisation is committed to preserving the over 300-year-old breeding tradition of the St. Bernard dogs at their place of origin. Another objective of the foundation is to bring joy to as many people as by providing them with an opportunity to interact with the legendary St. Bernard dogs. In doing so, it actively contributes to improving relations between humans and dogs.
