NOTE: Even though we choose this music because it was cute, we beg you PLEASE do NOT purchase any dog or pup from a pet store. It supports the puppy mill industry. If we don't have a puppy for you, we will be glad to help you find one from a reputable breeder or Breeder Referral contact in your area (see BMDCA link button above).
WARNING: Recently this breed has become a popular "designer breed". As with most popular breeds, brokers are used to buy Bernese cheap (often from other countries) and import them to the puppymills, commercial breeders and auction houses for nothing more than making money. Not all breeders in these countries are bad but usually reputable breeders won't sell their puppies to brokers. Therefore, please be aware that dogs imported in this way often have unknown health backgrounds and; therefore, stand a higher risk of orthopedic problems as well as other health issues that reputable breeders try to prescreen out of their breeding programs. A reputable breeder will interview you, have a written contract and often restrict the breeding of your dog to protect you, the dog and the breed's future. If you simply hand over money and pick up a puppy, the breeder probably doesn't care about their dogs or health of their breeding program. Please be careful, there are many more puppies available from commercial breeders than from reputable breeders. Easy access to a puppy is a red flag you may want to research further. Another Red Flag are puppies without AKC registrations. Simply owning and loving any purebred dog and wanting to have puppies, does not make a reputable breeder. Buyer Beware!
We are dedicated to the future welfare of this breed and as a BMDCA Breed Steward we would be happy to answer any questions you may have. If we don't know the answer, we will be glad to find someone who does. You can also learn much about this breed by joining one of the many internet mailing lists available. We recommend the Berner-L for beginners.
