WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN LOOKING FOR A BREEDER:
you should be able to get a fairly complete listing of breeders with recent litters or litters on the way. Please spend time reading the health information at this site - Information Series is a great start.
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. Check for regional clubs at www.bmdca.org .
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.
If you can pay by credit card, you should run. This is the first sign of someone who only cares about money.
