Our Puppy Policy

The homes our puppies go to are of the utmost importance to us. Berners are very loving family dogs, who need to be with people. Dogs are not disposable. We need to make sure that our puppy and your family are a "fit" so that you'll live happily ever after. For the most part, we let you choose your puppy, although there will be a few times when I will suggest a different puppy as more suitable for you.

In the unhappy event that you are not able to keep your dog anytime during it's lifetime, we will take it back. This does not mean BUY back, but if the dog is young enough to re-sell, you will get what we get minus expenses. If the dog is older, we just consider it a blessing if we can find a loving home.

All puppies will be dewormed regularly, checked by our veterinarian and have age- appropriate vaccinations. They will be microchipped both for identification purposes, and if, heaven forbid, they become lost, the chip is your best chance of getting them returned.

Throughout the life of your puppy, we will be available to answer questions and concerns.

We have a health guarantee (the puppy is 100% healthy when it leaves here) and we return a percentage of your purchase price for certain genetic defects - hip dysplasia and entropion.

You are welcome to visit by appointment. This is not a commercial kennel and we have no kennel hours. Puppies can go home at about 8 weeks, although if you have very small children, I generally keep them a few weeks longer, if for no other reason than to get them heavy enough that a small child can't pick them up. Many puppies are injured when dropped by children.

We require strict spay/neuter contracts on all companion puppies, which will be sold with AKC limited registration.

If you are interested in our puppies, please call so that we can discuss things further, schedule a visit or answer any questions you may have. The price of our puppies is $1500.00 to $1800.00 with consideration to folks who have titled Berners or other breeds before or have gotten dogs from us before.
