Our love for Bernese Mountain Dogs started in 2003 when my husband and I bought our first puppy as a wedding gift to each other. I had always admired them, and knew I would have to have one someday. I have had experience with many other breeds in the past, but nothing compares to having a Berner! Both my husband and I grew up with families who raised puppies. His family had two litters of Golden Retrievers, and ours had two litters of English Setters. I knew that someday I’d like to raise puppies myself. That dream came true when I found a Bernese Mountain Dog breeder who was willing to take the time to mentor me. Since then it has become a passion of mine to learn more every chance I get about breeding, nutrition, holistic care, health, structure, movement, drafting, obedience…..the list goes on. If it has anything to do with a Berner, I want to know more about it! In 2013 I completed a online course on Canine Theriogenology (Canine Reproduction).
I am fortunate enough to be home during the day working in my home based business, the Paradise Paw Spa. I work as a shop owner and dog groomer. Grooming is my job, but raising puppies is my passion!
My husband works as an auto body technician at Abra Auto Body. He is my right hand man when it comes to puppy chores!
We have two children, a daughter who is 8, and a son who is 5. They are wonderful little puppy socializers!
All of our dogs live with us, in our home, as part of our family. We enjoy taking our dogs camping, swimming in the lake with them, and having them pull our kids in a cart or on a sled.
We are dedicated breeders who strive to produce healthy, sound Berners with wonderful dispositions. We are committed to our puppies and their new owners for life. We look forward to creating new relationships with our puppy owners, and enjoy staying in touch with them as their puppies grow. We are always here to answer any questions you may have regarding your puppy or the breed in general.
