I had been considering a Bernese Mountain Dog for several years and after extensive research and by chance meeting a few “Berners” from Swiss Silhouette Kennels, I knew I found a responsible breeder that I trusted.

My Bernese Mt. Dog, Poppy is a wonderful, happy, intelligent dog with a great disposition. She is inquisitive and not it the least bit skittish or fearful. She is great with people and other dogs and has been a joy to be around since day one. Separation anxiety is not in Poppy’s vocabulary. She loves being in the car, hiking mountains and cruising along the beach. We spend weekends on the trails where we meet adults, kids, dogs and horses each encounter is met with her being a confident and well behaved puppy.

While many of Poppy’s positive attributes are part of the characteristics of the breed, I know that Shelly’s breeding and rearing techniques have a lot to do with how well her Bernese Mt. dogs learn and adapt as they grow up in their new environments.

In closing, I must simply say that if you are looking for a well rounded, friendly and happy dog and your new best friend, I would recommend Shelly at Swiss Silhouette Kennels without hesitation.
