Just something about this breed of dog that is almost impossible to describe.
The love that they show us is so different than any other breed. Until you
have owned a Berner you just won't be able to understand.
As you research the breed you will find out that they do have a great deal of
health issues. I found out right away that I would rather have 4 to 7 years with
a BMD than 15 years with any other dog. But, I wanted to do what I could to
try and change their short lifespan. It is a slow process but with the advances
in technology and DNA markers I think we are making some progress.
Blue Mountain Kennel has about 2 maybe 3 litters a year. I love the process
of putting pedigree's together and creating the best Bernese Mountain Dogs
that I can. Type, temperament, and Health. I am breeding for a strong
(football player) Bernese. Lot's of coat with a good head and a gentle
expression. I feel that too many of our dogs are too long on leg with not
enough coat. I want you to look at my dogs and see that "Teddy Bear" look.
When I am looking to place my puppies I want to place them with homes that
are interested in working with me for the life of the puppy. You don't buy the
puppy, you are buying me! I will answer your questions any time day or night.
I have been a veterinary technician for 15 plus years and if I don't have the
answer I will get the answer. I offer a contract and guarantee with each
puppy. I will help you through the good and the bad. These puppies are going
to be a part of your family.
One thing I am trying to suggest to every puppy owner.... Pet insurance!
Please consider this, especially with this breed. Even though breeders are
doing everything in their power to breed healthy dogs... things happen.
Usually, within the first few years. Puppies eat things they aren't supposed
to. Elbow's may not turn out... cruciate's may rupture... These things can be
covered under the right insurance company and do not have to break the
bank. Please just look into it... Trust me... as a veterinary technician... I see
this a lot.
I would love to talk to you about my dogs and help you to understand more
about this breed. Please feel free to contact me....
