We have had Bernese Mountain Dogs for over twenty years; breeding since 1997. Our emphasis is on correct temperament and type in dogs that live long, healthy lives. We track all our puppies and do our best to develop life-long relationships with their owners. Our girl, CH MTF Harmonie RN, was the top-winning female at the BMDCA national specialty show last April.

Bernese Mountain Dogs are wonderful! But they certainly are not for everyone. They can be great companions if properly trained as pups/young adults. But without training classes and socialization they can become shy and/or very obnoxious. Believe me, having an obnoxious 100 + lb dog isn't fun! Folks who want a dog that is easy to have around (but don't have time to train it) shouldn't get a Berner - it will be a miserable experience and they'll end up surrendering the dog, increasing our breed's rescue burden. Potential new owners also need to know that Bernese can capture your heart and then break it - the average age of death is 7 years - all over the world. Health and longevity issues remain the focus of many fund-raisers and international symposiums. If someone tells you they normally live to 10 - 12 years, don't believe it! Find a reputable breeder who will tell you the sad truth -- and provide information about a puppy's parents, grandparents, etc. Longevity often runs in families, so you want a pup from a family of dogs that has a majority of family members living well beyond the average 7 years.
