Please remember, if you are thinking about adding a Bernese puppy to your family there are important health issues to consider. A breeding should be studied and only considered if the combination works for health and temperament. 
Click on the "Beware" button above and find out how you can recognize a problem breeder. 
Plus, if you can pay by credit card, you should run. This is the first sign of someone who only cares about money.

Please, do not cave to the temptation of being able to instantly buy your puppy online. The breeders who support online pet marketing sites care nothing about the pets they are selling. All they care about is making money. They will take your money and ship you a pet whose parents have not been properly tested for genetic health defects or temperament. You will never get the support you need with questions or problems. They care nothing about what happens to your pet long term. Many of these pets end up in Breed rescue. 

Instead of buying from someone who isn't concerned about who you are or what will happen to the puppy, check with our regional clubs to see what they have in their rescue programs. 
Believe me, we have rescues.

Well bred Bernese Mountain Dogs do NOT come in red, except by accident. There is a breeder in NC now selling brown/red puppies. She is actually using a male that she says is purebred and she wants to produce puppies that color. There are known,,,,,extremely rare, occasions for red/brown bernese, but this woman is breeding them intentionally. This is an abomination, and should be stopped! The Bernese standard says any ground color other than black is a disqualification in the show ring. This woman is saying the male is show quality and the puppies are. That is an outright lie. PLEASE, do not support this woman by buying one of her puppies!  If you love this breed, you would never support this kind of breeder! By the way, we have researched her dogs, and there is no sign of health testing. Remember parents should be tested and certified by governing bodies for hips, elbows, heart, eyes and von Willebrands testing is the minimum. We also recommend degenerative myelopathy. Most certifications can be found either at or at
