We are a small, at home, show and working kennel. We are located in Appleton, Wisconsin in "Cheesehead Country", less than an hour from Green Bay. Our family consists of myself, my husband, and our two children, ages 11 and 14 years, along with our dogs and three cats (one  big lazy Ragdoll and two rescues. All our dogs live in our home as members of our family.  We take our dogs with us to as many pet friendly family events and outings as we possibly can.  We actively show our dogs in numerous canine competitions, such as, Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Agility, Pack Hikes and Dock Diving.  Drafting, Barn Hunts, Lure Coursing, Herding, Nosework, and Weight Pulling are also areas that we will  be embarking on in the near future  To say that our dogs "keep us busy" is a complete understatement. While we enjoy the time spent with our dogs showing and competing in all these fun filled endeavors, it is our daily family life with them that we find most rewarding of it all. First and foremost, they are our family companions, and sharing our love with them brings us the most joy. We especially love taking our dogs for quiet walks through our beautiful Wisconsin State Parks. 

We are active members of the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club of America, as well as, the Lake Shore GSMD club. We love both the Swissies and the Broholmers. We are very excited to have the first and still to date, only Broholmers in the Western Hemisphere. We just had the first litter which was 4 years of planning. We have only the best interest of both breeds at heart. We only have puppies on occasion and all litters are planned well in advance, with great care taken in choosing the best matched parents.       We  only  breed from  the finest  Champion lineage and Health cleared lines, that are sound in both mind and body.  Our goal is to produce Swissies and now Broholmers, that are not only gorgeous, with correct breed type, but also healthy long lived family companions, with confident, devoted and loving temperaments. All our puppies are extensively socialized and will go through a complete structure and temperament evaluation.  We want only the best homes for our Swissies and are very selective in the families we choose.
Thank you for visiting our site and we hope you enjoy our beautiful Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs and Broholmers. Be sure to visit our "Future Litters" page if you are interested in getting a puppy from us. If you would like more information  about us and our family selection process please contact us   We look forward to hearing from you.

Pictured above is 'Henry' CH Blackamber Keep On Choogin' pulling his two favorite girls in the wagon.  Henry is from our Carl x Jayda litter and is a wonderful example of the breeds exceptional temperament with their family members, especially children. Henry is owned and loved by the Hart family.
Pictured to the right is our beautiful Broholmer "Honor". She is the sweetest most affectionate dog anyone could ever ask for. We imported Honor in hopes of producing the very first litter of Broholmers in North America or even the Western Hemisphere. Well, the day has arrived as Honor and Zeke have produced a beautiful litter of 6 puppies. These puppies will have outstanding temperaments and make wonderful family companions. They will be simply gorgeous and big loving dogs weighing around 120-140 pounds. They will love you with all their hearts. This really is a special, intelligent, rare noble breed that will charm your heart and touch your soul
Honor and Zeke became parents of their first litter of Broholmer puppies. We were so excited to have the first litter of Broholmers in the United States. These adorable and sweet Broholmer puppies were born August 28, 2013. Pictured to the left is one of Honor and Zeke's 5 day old  babies. Isn't he just adorable, he looks just like a little bear cub?! This first litter was just too adorable with amazing sweet temperments. If you are interested in a puppy that will charm his or her way into your heart please feel free to contact us.
Our most recent litter of Danish Broholmers are pictured above at six weeks of age. in the photo They are all ready for the fall festivities. They are all so sweet!
Look at little Broholmer Sally pictured to the right. She was the only girl in the litter. This picture was taken of Sally when she was four weeks old. She looks a lot like her mother  Honor.
It sure was hard letting her go to her new home. However, we know she has a wonderful loving home and a big Great Dane brother to keep her company. We are now starting to prepare for our next litter of Broholmer puppies. We just did a repeat breeding and expect puppies to be born very late March 2014. Puppies will be ready to leave for their new homes the end of May or very early June 2014.

We recently bred 'Journey' to our Polish Import 'Max' and we are hopeful that we will have puppies very early in April 2014. Puppies from this litter should have amazing, sweet, and loving temperaments, as both parents possess very friendly and charming characters.  We have received a lot of interest in this litter. If you are considering a Swissy puppy from us, please contact us soon as possible, so we can give you more information about our selection and approval process. We look forward to sharing  our love for the breed with you,
