Bernie-visiting-at-Carlsbad-Fire-Department

Bernie the Bernese Mountain Dog visited the JEMS/PennWell offices recently with his owner and trainer A.J. Heightman, Editor-in-Chief of JEMS. Bernie visited the PennWell Offices in La Jolla on his way to the San Diego (La Jolla) Veterans Hospital where he is part of a Therapy Dog Team to comfort and support our military veterans. Bernie has completed all his training and certifications to serve as a Therapy Animal and is now two-years old and weighs in at 140 lbs. Bernie is a popular fixture at JEMS and throughout San Diego County as he visits hospitals and emergency scenes with his “Dad”.

See how Bernie has grown and developed since his first visit to JEMS when he was just 9-weeks-old and a few of our favorite YouTube training clips:
