Online Bernese Mountain Dog Breeders

We don’t all have the same access to Bernese Mountain Dog breeders, and that’s why have included some online resources that are available.

While searching online opens up a lot more doors and opportunities, you also open yourself up to more “not so great” breeders, so always do your due diligence, and we cover that in the following section.

Here are some online Bernese Mountain Dog Breeders worth checking out:

Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America: “The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America (“BMDCA”) On-Line Breeder Referral Program is an opt-in member privilege created to assist potential puppy owners with making contact with BMDCA members who breed.”

Puppy Spot – Berners: “The PuppySpot brand, with puppies at the center, is rooted in the belief that dogs should be celebrated, and owners deserve to experience trust, confidence and transparency when searching for their new companions.”

How to Identify Responsible Bernese Mountain Dog Breeders

A responsible Bernese Mountain Dog breeders will be able to provide you with copies of the American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club registration certificates before exchanging any money. This will give you verified information about the mom and dad of the potential puppy, so you can ensure they are registered with the AKC as “potential breeders” and are purebred.

The Lone Star LSBMDR logo Bernese Mountain Dog Club and Rescue warns that Bernese Mountain Dogs are being increasingly exploited. They recommend that the public be discouraged from buying from the following sources:

  1. Puppy Farmers: A person who breeds dogs for profit, as commercial livestock, without effort applied to improving the breed.
  2. Puppy Mills: Commercial dog breeding operations, which may or may not keep dogs in humane conditions, but who are focused on producing as many dogs as possible, at as high a profit margin as possible, without concerted effort toward turning out a quality product.
  3. Dog Broker: A person who acts as a middleman in the transaction of dog to buyer. He may buy the dog and resell it at a profit or may receive a commission.
  4. Dog Auction: Run exactly like livestock auctions, where high bidder takes the animal home.

Reputable Bernese Mountain Dog breeders are going to sell their pups somewhere in the ballpark of $800-$2000 (on average). Prices far below and far above warrant further investigation into the breeder by the potential buyer.

Tips to Help You Be Prepared for Bernese Mountain Dogs

Our top tip for those considering adding a Bernese Mountain dog to their family is to consider the environment you are bringing them into. Bernese Mountain dogs have long fur, making hot climates a bit more difficult to be comfortable, especially since they do best with a lot of exercise.

Bernese Mountain Dogs will also thrive in larger spaces and may not be as comfortable in smaller living quarters, such as apartments. That’s when a lot of people start thinking about the mini Bernese Mountain dog!

Be prepared for Bernese Mountain dogs to have a shorter overall lifespan than other breeds. There are several health conditions that occur with this breed, including:

  • hip dysplasia
  • elbow dysplasia
  • progressive retinal atrophy
  • von Willebrand’s disease (a blood-clotting disorder)
  • histiocytosis (the most common cancer for this breed)
  • gastric torsion

And lastly, Bernese Mountain dogs shed a lot! Once winter is over, be prepared for your Berner to shed their thick winter coat. If you or someone that frequents your home is sensitive or allergic to dog hair, there’s going to be an issue.

But once you bring a new Berner home, these “cons” will quickly be pushed to the side when their loyal and faithful characteristics come to shine, adding joy and new experiences for your family for years to come.
