Because It’s Here Where Berners Find Extraordinary Beginnings

On our ranch, our Registered Berner puppies embrace their surroundings, exploring the mountains and rivers, fostering their socialization and curiosity. As they grow, our Bernese Mountain Dogs continue to cherish their home in the Beartooth Mountain Range, embodying the spirit of keepers and adventurers.

As a family-driven breeder, we prioritize the well-being of our AKC registered Bernese Mountain Dogs, treating them as cherished members of our own family. This approach nurtures their exceptional temperaments, resulting in sweet, gentle, protective, loyal, and lovable Berners that are perfect for families.

A 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.

Genetically True Bernese Mountain Dogs

AKC Bernese Mountain Dog Ranch is dedicated to continuing strong bloodlines for Bernese Mountain Dogs. That’s why each one of our dams and sires is verified by the AKC as a purebred with certified genetics. We have all the appropriate information and genetic paperwork necessary on our dogs, which can be found here on our website, so you know that you are getting true full blood and well bred Berner puppies.

Always Tri-Colored

Our name AKC Bernese Mountain Dog Ranch says it all, and we’ve got the proof to show it. Producing gorgeously marked puppies is what we do best, which is what we can always guarantee. You’ll always find our puppies have gorgeous coats with distinguishable black noses.

Sometimes, we might get a puppy from a litter with a "Swiss Kiss." This is a term of endearment used to describe the white hairs sometimes placed across the should blades. That is becoming more and more sought after. So, if you are one of those who prefer a bit of white across the shoulder blades, let us know so we can match you up with the perfect family member today!
