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 had good genetics and were properly socialized from the start. This can make or break a good dog and it is our mission to give our puppies the best start in life. 

Home for us was, up to recently,  in Central Alberta, on a small acreage just outside of the city of Red Deer, but we have recently moved out to the East Coast near the beautiful town of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. Here we have 5 beautiful acres of woods and creek where we can walk and roam pretty freely.

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.  They love truck/car rides, especially when they know they are going to the lake for a swim on the long, hot summer days.  

They are amazing travel companions who love meeting new people and exploring new places.


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

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