About Us

My love for the breed started years ago when I was involved with Dobermanns. I was attracted to the Bernese striking appearance and their happy, easy going temperament. I always wanted to own one but this wasn't a possibility at the time.

In 2009, I contacted Nicole Lennon of Zanzebern about the prospect of a female show dog. I had been a frequent visitor to her website and fell in love with Denzel: Multi BISS/BIS  Aust, Am, Can, Swe & Ndl Ch Zanzebern Defender. I waited almost a year until a puppy became available, and in late 2010,  Luda came to live with me.

My love and passion for the breed has grown enormously since then. In 2012, I acquired my second Bernese from Emma Sankey at Zollikon. Ava has well and truly exceeded my expectations and done extremely well in the show ring.

We currently participate in Conformation showing, both here at All Breeds shows, and at Bernese Specialties around Australia, and in Obedience.

We only breed to improve the breed, and to produce sound, beautiful true to type Bernese with exceptional temperaments.

We are members of Dogswest, & Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Victoria.
