Meet The

Best Breed!

Are you looking for an active, loyal companion eager to be your buddy through all of life’s ups and down? Consider making the versatile Bernese Mountain Dog a cherished member of your family. Renowned for their gentle yet protective nature, these gentle giants thrive on human companionship and will be the perfect hiking, camping and trekking partners.

You may already know that the iconic Bernese Mountain Dog is one of America’s most popular breeds, but how did they gain such widespread appeal? Here’s a brief history: Originating from the Swiss Alps, this noble breed has a rich legacy as a multifaceted working dog, offering solid companionship to farmers and Alpine families. Distinctively marked with black, white and rust tri-colors, the Bernese Mountain Dog exudes a calm yet powerful presence. Renowned for their unparalleled loyalty, good-natured intelligence and eager-to-please temperament, they make excellent family pets, therapy dogs and faithful guards of the homestead.

Did you know the American Kennel Club recognizes two distinct coat varieties? The classic longhaired coat features longer ruff and feathering. This coat variety requires regular grooming. Alternateively, the shorter haired coat lies smooth with less matting and less shedding.

Another lesser known tidbit is their history as draft animals in the Alps, hauling goods through treacherous terrain with surefooted strength and endurance— an adaptable working ethic sometimes forgotten in their role as loving pets. With capabilities beyond companionship, the Bernese heritage presents a complex multidimensional nature.

While certain hereditary health issues necessitate monitoring, the charming Berner remains a treasured breed for all of life’s adventures, loyalty, beauty and companionship. With a dual legacy as worker and friend, these dogs truly shine as devoted active family members. Come meet this special breed - you'll understand their enduring popularity amongst dog lovers.

Why Our Puppies Are Different

The special interactions we give each one of our puppies is what sets us apart from any other breeder. At AKC Bernese Mountain Dog Ranch, this level of socialization is standard because we want all of our Berner puppies to be accustomed to human interaction when it’s time to go home. This way, we can guarantee that any puppy placed with you will go home wholly socialized and ready to join your family.

Another thing that sets us apart is that we are hands-on and attentive. As long as our dogs are with us, they are family to us — but it doesn’t stop there. Even after adoption, we are more than happy to stay in contact and answer any questions you may have in the coming weeks. But above all, we always adhere to our main priorities while also allowing our puppies to play on our land and receive advanced training services. Watch our Puppy Live Stream to not only add some cuteness to your day but to see how happy and loved our puppies are. If you have searched for “Bernese Mountain Dog Puppies for sale near me” we want you to know this is not just a transaction for us. We take seriously, each of our family placements.

Calm Temperament

We promote a calm temperament with frequent and appropriate socialization, advanced training options, and developing the Bernese Mountain Dog trait.

Traditionally, well bred Bernese Mountain Dogs innately have very calm temperaments. They are also less active and quieter than typical backyard breeders, which makes them easier to train and the perfect family dog for any type of family.

At AKC Bernese Mountain Dog Ranch, we are firm believers in socializing our Berner puppies with adults, children, and other animals so that they will grow up to be confident and reliable adults.

Can you imagine a world where your puppy gets to run and play safely in the open air at the base of the Beartooth Mountain Range? Fortunately, our dogs and puppies get to do this every single day. Nestled at the base of Wyoming’s Beartooth Mountains (part of the Rocky Mountain Range), our Berner puppies and their parents take full advantage of our Our Cozy Facility Along Clark's Fork River with wide open spaces where they can play, discover, and socialize for hours on end.

Best of all, we are eager to schedule visitors. When you come to see our puppies, you can also run and play with them to get to know them and where they grew up.

We have a very thorough and strict biosecurity program that allows families to visit. This investment sets us apart from most breeders.

Three Levels of

Advanced Training!

Not only are we recognized as one of the top Bernese Mountain Dog breeders in the country, but we are also situated in a modern lifestyle training facility. Here, we provide specialized training for your puppy based on your preferences.

Our Well-Trained Puppy Program offers three levels of training: Buckaroo 101, Buckaroo Honors, and Wrangler Advanced. Each level consists of daily training sessions tailored to your desired level of intensity. Buckaroo 101 serves as a basic introduction course lasting two to three weeks, while Buckaroo Honors builds upon that foundation and prepares the puppy for AKC’s S.T.A.R. Puppy Certification. For more comprehensive training, the Wrangler Advanced class focuses on socialization and obedience skills for the puppy's future.

Regardless of the training level achieved, we employ consistent training methods. We utilize micro training techniques, rewarding and reinforcing incremental progress while disregarding undesirable behaviors. Additionally, we incorporate the "Three D's" of canine training, gradually introducing Distance, Duration, and Distraction to each behavior as the puppy demonstrates reliability.

Alongside training, we prioritize ongoing confidence-building games and exercises for every AKC Bernese Mountain Dog in our program. Our aim is to foster well-rounded and confident dogs who thrive in various environments.

Buckaroo 101

Puppy manners are essential for ensuring a happy life with your Bernese Mountain Dog. That's why we offer the Buckaroo 101 training, a specialized 3-week course tailored for puppies between seven to eight weeks old. This comprehensive program focuses on teaching puppies the necessary skills and commands.

Successful graduates of the Buckaroo 101 training course display proficiency in both verbal and physical cues for all the required command words. They will learn basic commands such as "yes," "no," "sit," "down," and "stay," while also receiving conditioning in areas like greetings without jumping, crate training, grooming introduction, and separation building.

By enrolling your Bernese Mountain Dog puppy in our Buckaroo 101 training, you are ensuring they develop the fundamental manners and obedience needed for a harmonious and enjoyable life together.

Buckaroo Honors

Buckaroo Honors includes everything from Buckaroo 101 but is an additional 4 weeks. This course is more in-depth and covers just about everything you and your dog need to know to better communicate with each other in the future. Going beyond basic commands and conditioning, Buckaroo Honors is expansive, as it covers complex commands and behaviors.

Your Bernese Mountain Dog puppy will learn basic commands plus complex ones like “leave it, get it, calm, loose leash walking,” and more. Conditioning will advance to vetting behaviors and complete grooming behaviors.

Wrangler Advanced

Wrangler Advanced is our most advanced program, specifically designed to ensure that your Bernese Mountain Dog from our program becomes the epitome of well-behaved and well-trained dogs. Graduates of this program possess the necessary elements to excel in obedience and behavior.

One of the key achievements of Wrangler Advanced is that all graduates become Canine Good Citizen Certified. This certification serves as a solid foundation, particularly for those interested in pursuing service dog training. The program focuses on mastering ten essential skills that instill confidence and promote good manners in your puppy.

Looking ahead

We have plans to introduce virtual training programs as part of the AKC Bernese Mountain Dog Ranch's Well-Trained Puppy Program. This will go beyond a mere library of pre-recorded videos. Instead, it will offer personalized 1-on-1 training conducted virtually by our AKC Certified Evaluator.

The AKC Bernese Mountain Dog Ranch's commitment to excellence in training is exemplified by the Wrangler Advanced program and our upcoming virtual training initiatives. We strive to equip you and your Bernese Mountain Dog with the skills and resources necessary for a lifelong partnership built on trust, obedience, and mutual understanding.

Hi Michelle,
I wanted to send you a little update on miss Fernie 🙂 I can't believe she is already 6 months old! She has been doing so well! We just love her to pieces. She has done some traveling and is loving the Bay Area! I love that we have our little micro climate as it has been nice and cool all summer. We went to Lake Tahoe once she was fully vaccinated and had a lot of fun! We do a lot of trips to SF beaches and Pacifica.

She has completed her Puppy 1 training course with Petco and did really well. We are waiting for Puppy 2 to start as the trainer had to have surgery so it was delayed a little. Training is going great- she is fully potty trained, leash walking is going well, still pulls a little but for most part doing great. She gets a bit excited when people come over so we are working on that. Also, still in the mouthy phase but I feel like it is almost over as it is nowhere near where it was before and she just lost her last baby tooth. Lots of redirecting and marrow bones. She is fully crate trained, sleeps all night in crate and for 2 of 3 naps a day. We put her in there when we have to run an errand and she does great.

We found a great daycare near us that we take her to once a week. We pick our busiest day of the week and she is there 9am-3pm so she can get a lot of socializing in and we can get our things done. She loves it so much! We go to a lot of dog parks and hikes. She does so well with other dogs. She is a little celebrity everywhere we go 🙂

We really love the vet we have, they are wonderful and love Fernie.

2. She was sleeping through the night and potty trained pretty quick. She is so good with people and dogs. Thank you so much for all of your guidance and bringing this amazing girl to our family! I have attached some pics from over the summer. It is amazing to see how fast she has grown!

I had a positive experience with Michelle Hall who provided me with Dolly, my beloved Bernese Mountain Dog puppy. Michelle demonstrated a strong commitment to the breed's well-being, ensuring Dolly arrived in excellent health and had undergone thorough veterinary checks. Her dedication to socializing Dolly and her ongoing breeder support and communication are commendable. Her transparency and adherence to responsible breeding practices were evident through comprehensive documentation and contracts. I would recommend AKC Bernese Mountain Dog Ranch to anyone seeking a healthy and well-cared-for Bernese Mountain Dog puppy.

Our street is exploding with fireworks and Chai is perfectly calm and relaxed, except she wants to go play with the kids next door who are lighting sparklers.😂 I think a lot of this is due to her breeder’s early conditioning!!

I just wanted to share some pictures of Hank. He’s awesome and we love him! He’s turning into quite the farm dog and loves going to work with me too. Awesome in all environments with zero issues. He rides the tractor, loves all people and pup cups from the coffee shop! His obedience is coming along quite nicely as well!
