Breed Standard & Health
You may have already heard me harp on about the health and well-being of the Bernese Mountain Dog breed but i am PASSIONATE about making sure that breeders like ourselves are making a conscious effort to breed pro-actively, to not breed dogs that have Hip and ED, to stop breeding DM affected Dogs, to ensure longevity by making sure breeders are researching bloodlines, PREhistio Testing and using that gift of information to help, not hinder the breed for the years to come.
Below i have listed the testing available to Bernese Mountain Dog breeders(and the tests that we cover on our own dogs), clicking on each will open an external link to information regarding the chosen topic.
NOBODY IS ABOVE ETHICAL AND RESPONSIBLE BREEDING
Challenge and question breeders! if you dont get the answer you like or want, have the confidence to walk away.
