Finding A Bernese Mountain Dog Puppy

©Copyright Anne Nichols Photography © Copyright Anne Nichols Photography
Choosing a puppy that will integrate well into your family is the best way to guarantee a rewarding experience. Before you consider purchasing any puppy, determine the breed that is right for you. Find out if the breed fits your lifestyle, family situation, activity level and overall expectations. Talk with local clubs, organizations and breeders, and attend dog shows or visit a dog park to talk with actual owners of the breed.

Puppies are individuals just like people. Some are aggressive, some are shy. The health and gentle, good nature of Bernese Mountain Dogs should never be taken for granted. It is important to consider these issues before you buy your puppy.

Our club meets once per quarter and hosts numerous informal gatherings throughout the year. If you are considering a Bernese Mountain Dog and would like to learn more about life with a Berner, join us at our next club gathering.

Buyer Beware

There are many so-called breeders that are actually puppy mills that do not follow responsible or humane breeding practices with the only goal of making a profit. These puppies often live in atrocious environments and have health and behavioral issues. Please research the breeder and talk with our breeder referral contacts before you purchase a Berner puppy. We'll help you find someone who is responsible and reputable. Read more about what to look for in a responsible breeder.
