Glenbern Golden Retrievers & Bernese Mountain Dogs

Frequently Asked Questions:

Please read this page as it answers most commonly asked questions.

I am very happy to talk  with people by phone if interested in my puppies, but due to time constraints, I've decided to limit calls to those who have filled out my puppy questionnaire and have read the links. Thank you for understanding.


Breeding goals:

My goal is to produce puppies that are healthy, happy, have great temperaments and get a good start at life.


Do you require a fenced yard?

I do require a securely fenced yard or a securely fenced area with access via a door off the house. The fence does not have to be expensive, but it has to be secure.  I don’t consider invisible/electric fencing secure. I will not consider applications if you do not have a securely fenced yard. This is for the safety of the puppy. For this reason I am no longer placing puppies into high rise apartments/condos.


Do you ship puppies? / Do you sell to the US?

I do not ship my puppies.


Are your dogs health tested?

All my dogs are checked for hips, elbows (Xrays), heart (Cardiologist) and eyes (Ophthalmologist), and breed specific DNA testing. Copies of health test results are provided.


Do you have a guarantee?

I warranty my puppies up to 24 months of age against some hip and elbow dysplasia conditions, and some hereditary heart and eye conditions.


Are your puppies registered?

Yes, all my puppies are registered with the Canadian Kennel Club on a non-breeding agreement. They are sold with a spay/neuter contract, unless you are part of my breeding program.


What is involved in participating in your breeding program?

Briefly, you purchase the puppy, he/she is your dog. I pay for all breeding related expenses; you pay for any pet related expenses. You must live within 1.5 hours from Perth to participate in this program. There is financial compensation for working with me.

For more information, please see this link: Breeding Program.


How are your puppies raised?

My puppies are raised in my home. I am fortunate enough to be able to stay at home, so my time is devoted to them and their needs. Please see How I Raise My Puppies page.

How much are your puppies?

My Golden puppies are $1,900.00 + 13% tax, and my Berner puppies are $2500.00 + 13% tax.

Puppies are veterinary checked, receive 1st vaccine, are wormed, microchipped and registered with the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) on a non-breeding contract. They come with 6 weeks of free pet insurance (up to $1,000.00), information on how to take care of your puppy, a 5 generation pedigree, health tests and photos of the parents, and a lifetime of support.


The adoption process?

Please fill in the appropriate questionnaire below and provide me with information about yourself/family and lifestyle. This information will allow me to get a better idea of what type of puppy you are interested in. If I think one of my puppies would be suitable, I will contact you via email to set up a phone chat or have you come for a visit. If we both decide to go ahead with the adoption, I require a deposit to be put on my reservation list (Goldens $400.00 and Berners $500.00). If I can not provide you with a puppy, (if there are not enough puppies or not the right sex), I will gladly refund your deposit or you can choose to wait for my next litter.
