Even as a young boy, I was fascinated by the interaction between humans and animals, and by the indispensable partnership apparent during any performance or task. After working in the area of cultural heritage both in Switzerland and abroad, my path has now crossed a unique symbol of Switzerland. I am delighted to be able to support the continued existence and development of the Barry foundation - accompanied by a Saint Bernard of course. The focus is on breeding, occupation and communication.
