We are Patty and Pascal Gartmann. We live in SW Ohio
with our two daughters, Katie and Leesa, and our dogs.
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.
