Paws Awhile Berners is a professional breeder of Bernese Mountain Dogs . We operate in a humane and responsible environment. The Bernese is a highly social breed who craves the attention and interaction of people and other dogs. We are proud of our facility where our dogs roam free throughout our large property.
We are located on 15 acres of hardwood forest in the rolling hills by Victoria Harbour. It's dog heaven for our free range dogs.
You are welcome to visit our facility and meet our pack. Most litters are spoken for by the time they are whelped, but you're always welcome to visit while a litter is being reared to see for yourself just how wonderful a Bernese puppy can be.
Our puppies stay under the care of their birth-mother until at least the age of 8 weeks, at which time, depending on their health and temperament, they are eligible for adoption. If you've done your homework on the breed, you know how big some of those puppies can grow! Please spend some time in our Meet-The-Parents section to familiarize yourself with each of our male and female breeders when considering the characteristics you're hoping for in your new family member.
When you feel your family is ready to adopt a Bernese Mountain Dog, we encourage you to visit our Upcoming Litters section and reserve a male or female puppy from the upcoming litter of your choice. You can follow your puppy's development and begin to prepare for your new family member.
