Ever since I can remember, I have had dogs in my life.  Not only have they become my passion but also my families.  Before we fell in love with the Bernese Mountain Dog, we raised English Mastiffs for 12 years.  At one point, we were involved in dog showing and conformation.  There we learned the importance of breeding dogs who were properly socialized from the start.  This can make or break a good dog.  We also learned the importance of only breeding dogs who will pass on good temperament and genetics. 

Home for us is in Central Alberta, on a small acreage just outside of the city of Red Deer.  Our dogs are a huge part of our family and we only keep as many as can comfortably sprawl out on the kitchen floor or snuggle up with us on the couch.  It gets pretty crowded sometimes, especially in the long cold winter months. 

The Bernese dogs have a sweet, gentle demeanor which make them loyal, devoted family members.  Once a year, we travel to the Maritimes with out dogs.  They are amazing travel companions who love meeting new people and exploring new places.

Another passion of mine is being an Advocate for the RCMP Victim Services as well as volunteering at the Red Deer Food Bank.  Both services are helping our community in a big way.

We want to have a few more litters of Bernese puppies over the next few years because we want other families to experience the joy that this breed can bring.  Our goal is to produce healthy, good temperament dogs who have been given the best start in life.    

We implement “early neurological stimulation” starting at 3 days old and continue through the first 12 weeks of their life.

Together with out knowledge and experience, we believe that your new family member will learn to embrace life and all that it has to offer.
