Hello & Welcome! I am so glad you’re here!
Our last General/Sadie breeding was over Thanksgiving. With hopeful cooperation from Mother Nature, we hope to share happy/healthy delivery news in just a few more weeks. We've got several deposits already for that litter. Still, we can accept two others, as long as you understand that we can guarantee a puppy placement within six months, even if the litter expected from Sadie does not produce a puppy for your gender preference, based on the order deposits are received.
Besides Sadie's litter, we plan to welcome two additional litters in early 2024. We bred Truly Scrumptious right before Christmas.
Our Hall family has 9 adult Bernese Mountain Dog family members. Michelle has 4 (Truly/Millie/Wealthy-Retired/The General), David has 3 (Zippy/Whizbang/Mattie), Dymon (adult son) has 1 (Bennie - Retired). and Allie (adult daughter) has 1 (Sadie). Our plans include 2 Breedings in the spring and 2 Breedings in the fall. Breedings don't always result in conception, but we usually can expect one delivery from these breeding efforts.
Please Note: All details below, related to our Puppy Adoption Process and Cost will be revised for any unreserved puppies born for all future litters. We've worked diligently to keep our adoption costs down, but the time has come for us to reflect the rising cost of puppy care/training/delivery in our future adoption process. All puppies reserved prior to our final winter breedings' deliveries (between Sadie/Truly and General) will have existing agreements honored. More details to follow in Late-January 2024.
Also, with lots of edits still to go, but scheduled for official publication during the mid January 2024. That’s where you can learn more about our training options and all litters, going forward. Here is a temporary link to the rough draft of our new website: https://79e.6d5.myftpupload.com

The search for a new fur baby is exciting! But--- it can also be fraught with uncertainty. Your mind is probably swirling with questions. “What breed is best for me? How do I know I’m dealing with a reputable kennel? Is there a way to be certain my puppy is truly healthy?”
Yes indeed, choosing a puppy is so much more than falling in love with a pretty face!
We here at Bernese Mountain Railway understand those concerns. Please let us take a few minutes to introduce our program and explain some of the things that make our adorably sweet puppies so special.
When searching for your fur baby, one of the First questions you should ask is, “How can I be assured this puppy is healthy and free of under-lying health issues?”
For us, answering that question is easy! Each of our breeding adults has undergone extensive genetic testing so that we can confidently assure our adoptive parents that their puppy will be free of the painful, heart-breaking maladies which plague so many “back yard” breeding programs. We are proud of our testing results and publish them on our website for the world to see. You can check them out here: Testing (bernesemountainrailway.com)
Another top priority is ensuring your puppy’s temperament is well -suited for your family’s lifestyle.
Again, This one is easy for us! Our puppies are the offspring of beloved family pets. Because of this, they are raised in a loving, family setting, where they receive personalized affection & one-on-one-training as a part of their daily experience.
To help with this, I use an AKC-certified evaluator and professional Litter Nanny to help raise all my pups. She arrives after a litter is born and stays to help me/momma dogs care for and nurture the puppies.
As part of our puppy protocol, we perform Early Neurological Stimulation from age 3 days old through 16 days old. This sets the groundwork for the emotional stability and future training of our puppies. Once this phase is complete, we add additional sensory techniques to ensure your baby has been exposed to an assortment of sights, sounds and experiences. While this strategy does not change the innate temperament of a puppy, it does help ensure our puppies are prepared to become happy, confident, well-adjusted members of your family.
While in our care, our puppies also receive their first, second and 3rd vaccinations, worming, and have their dewclaws removed. The day before your baby is ready to head home, it will have a thorough “well check” visit from our veterinarian’s office. You will receive a copy of all his/her examination paperwork, including doctor’s notes regarding weight, vaccines, wormings and proof of clear fecal test--- all of which gives you the assurance that your puppy is healthy and strong.
How do I pick my puppy?
Discovering the ideal puppy is an utmost priority!
While physical appearance certainly plays a part, we emphasize the significance of personality in the selection process.
That's why we've curated a comprehensive approach, utilizing your completed family questionnaire, an abundance of puppy pictures and videos, our innovative Best-fit Puppy Matching Program, and puppy personality assessments to enhance the entire experience.

Based on a combination of all puppies' personalized Best-Fit Puppy Score and your personalized Best-Fit Puppy Score, we will expertly pair you with the perfect puppy from our litter.

Detailed Explanation of Puppy Cost:
Broken down by Installment timeline - Currently, puppies for are being reserved with placement holding deposits. They are being reserved for $500 down & $1,000 good-faith installment payment when we are certain we have a puppy in line (born, healthy, on the ground & Vet Checked) for new depositors and the balance is $2,000 due before they go home. Oftentimes, at my desertion, I will combine the final two transactions into a single invoice right before the puppy leaves my home.
That is a combined total of $3,500 and remember, I have partnered with 3rd party platforms for those interested in budget friendly payment terms. Contact me for my details.
