ABOUT


Bernese Mountain Dog's are among the most beautiful breed of any animal I have ever encounted. Beautiful family dogs and companions. Amazing with children and a favourite at the local cafe.


The Bernese Mountain Dog is a large, sturdy worker who can stand over 27 inches at the shoulder. The thick, silky, and moderately long coat is tri colored: jet black, clear white, and rust. The distinctive markings on the coat and face are breed hallmarks and, combined with the intelligent gleam in the dark eyes, add to the Berner’s aura of majestic nobility. A hardy dog who thrives in cold weather, the Berner’s brain and brawn helped him multitask on the farms and pastures of Switzerland.
Berners get along with the entire family and are particularly gentle with children, but they will often become more attached to one lucky human. Berners are imposing but not threatening, and they maintain an aloof dignity with strangers.

I first became introduced to the Bernese Mountain dog back in 2010, at the time I really wanted a Yorkshire terrier and my partner said what about this breed a Bernese Mountain Dog? From there I was hooked and we set out to find our beautiful puppy, so in 2010 we had the pleasure of meeting our boy Lincoln. Lincoln was a stunning dog in our eyes and set the tone for what a joy and pleasure it was to have the Bernese as family, so of course I couldn’t stop at one. Now after many years I have my own breeding prefix - Thorben. I will have litters occasionally and sell only to loving pet homes.

Our Bernese are brought up in our home as well as our puppies, surrounded by kids, adults and lots of fresh air and nature, I am committed to meeting and exceeding the breeds standards of health, happiness and longevity. Given this, I have a rigid and specific set of guidelines I ensure are met by both male and female dogs in order to facilitate a litter of pups.
