About the Breeds

The Bernese Mountain Dog, originating from Switzerland, is a majestic and versatile breed that captures hearts with its distinctive tricolor coat and friendly nature. Big, powerful, and built for hard work, the Bernese Mountain Dog is also strikingly beautiful and blessed with a sweet, affectionate nature. Berners are generally laid back but are always up for a romp with their owner, whom they live to please. They excel in various activities such as obedience trials, tracking, and even therapy work. Their calm and patient demeanor makes them well-suited for interacting with children, and they often display a protective instinct towards their family. Berners thrive on human companionship and enjoy being included in family activities, whether it's a hike in the mountains or simply lounging around the house. The Bernese Mountain Dog is a giant breed with a BIG heart!

The Newfoundland dog, often lovingly called the "Newfie," is a large and noble breed originating from Newfoundland, Canada. Newfie's are loved for their gentle, patient, and highly affectionate nature. Renowned for devotion towards their families, Newfoundlands are especially protective of children. Their friendly and sociable personalities make them excellent companions and therapy dogs. In addition to their outstanding water rescue abilities, Newfies are also versatile working dogs. Historically, Newfs worked as draft animals, pulling carts and sleds, as well as assisting fisherman by hauling nets or carrying supplies. Their strength, endurance, and willingness to work have made them valuable partners and loving family members who give the biggest ,sloppiest kisses!

The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular breeds in the United States! The breed's friendly attitude makes them great family pets, and their intelligence makes them highly capable working dogs. Their high level of cognitive ability allows them to quickly learn various tasks. This makes them ideal candidates for training, assistance work, and therapy roles. They exhibit excellent problem-solving skills, can follow complex commands, and excel in obedience training. Goldens are extremely emotionally intelligent, displaying a keen sense of empathy and understanding. They are the best at retrieving objects, tracking, and love the water. Goldens make the best companions and are never more than an arm's length away from their person.
