"Money can buy you a pretty good dog.

But it won't buy the wag of it's tail."


I show and breed Bernese Mountain Dogs. And I'm a Pet Advocate at heart.


Any pet owner is that animal's caretaker. The problem is: "What you don't know can harm or kill your animal".


If you read nothing else on this website, I hope you'll read this and take it to heart:


Your Vet doesn't live with your dog

Your dog food manufacturer doesn't live with your dog

Your pet store professional doesn't live with your dog

Your dog's breeder doesn't live with your dog

Your dog's trainer doesn't live with your dog


......you do.


You live with your dog - every day! You know your dog better than anyone else.


It is your responsibility to make certain that the decisions made for your pet are as well informed as possible. This means you need to do your own homework, and you should never just rely on someone else's opinion to provide for the best interest of your dog.


Good Vets and good breeders understand this and will support your education. If your Vet and/or breeder doesn't support your own education, find another one that will!


My website is designed to help you with all sorts of education and can be applied to most any dog breed. Of course, my special interest is in the Bernese Mountain Dog breed.


Please peruse my website using the links above. I hope you find my information useful.


Most of all, I hope your dog benefits from your becoming better educated as your animal's caretaker - that you are truly your dog's best friend.
