Chalet Bernese
We are Patty and Pascal Gartmann.  We live in SW
Ohio
with our dogs,  Our children are grown; one is
married and the other in college.
  Pascal was born
and raised in Switzerland and always wanted to
own a Bernese Mountain Dog.  Katie and Leesa
were also born in Switzerland as we lived there for
about five years before moving to Ohio.  Pascal's
life-long dream of owning a Berner was fulfilled
when we brought Sophie home!! We have been in
love with this breed ever since.  Ava brought us
into the world of showing/conformation.  We are
active in several Bernese Mountain Dog Clubs,
training obedience, conformation and drafting.
All of our Bernese Mountain Dogs are raised in our home.  They are members of
our family and loved and cherished as such.  They do not live in a kennel
environment.  We have only a small number of Berners so that they will
receive the proper attention, exercise, love and vet care that they deserve. :-)   
We are very passionate about our dogs and as breeders we strive to only bring
healthy, happy, well-balanced puppies into this world.  All litters/pedigrees
are carefully researched.  We breed on occasion and only when we are ready to
take on and properly care for a litter in our home.  We are very selective when
it comes to placing our pups.  It is our goal to match family lifestyles to
personalities of puppies.
