Fraud Alert

We have an alarming increase in fraudulent and puppy mill sales of Berners

  • Never buy from a pet store, middle man, or broker.
  • Always get several INDEPENDENT references for your breeder from people actively involved in Berners.
  • Visit the breeder's actual kennel or double your number of references.
  • Always get a pedigree for both parents of your pup and CONFIRM it.
  • Always get the registration documents before you buy - In the US almost all non AKC registrations are phony.
  • Don't buy based on web sites or advertisements - newspaper ads are rarely legitimate.
