WELCOME TO BLACKAMBER
HOME OF GREATER SWISS MOUNTAIN DOGS & DANISH BROHOLMERS
We are a small, at home, show and working dog family. We are located in Appleton-Oshkosh area of Wisconsin in "Cheesehead Country", less than an hour from Green Bay. Our family consists of myself, my husband, and our two children, ages 15 and 18 years. All our dogs live in 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, Dock Diving. Drafting, Barn Hunts, Lure Coursing, Herding, Nosework, and Weight Pulling. We are also perusing hunt trialing and herding in the not too distinct 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 and over 150 acres of family owned property.
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 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 of great temperament, breed type, and health. We will only breed from the finest Champion lineage with many of our dogs imported as to carefully select only dogs of exceptional quality from Health cleared lines, that are sound in both mind and body. Our goal is to produce Swissies and Broholmers, that are not only gorgeous, with correct breed type, but also healthy long lived family companions, with confident, devoted 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' BN CGC 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 and lives in Duluth Minnesota.
And 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, that day arrived as, Honor and Zeke produced a beautiful litter of 6 puppies. These puppies are now almost a year old and have outstanding temperaments
and all are wonderful family companions. When full grown they will be stunning, gorgeous and big loving dogs weighing around 120-140 pounds. Broholmers 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 USA which 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 temperaments. At this time we do not have any Broholomer Litters planned. We will update our website when we do.
Our very first 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 and cuddly!
Look at little Broholmer Sally pictured to the right. She was the only girl in her 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 really are looking forward to bringing some more sweet and, loving Broholmers into the world. They really are a wonderful very rare breed of dog and are so excited that we are able to promote the breed here in the United States. We love our Broholmers.
Pictured to the left is "Harper". Our girl Harper, CH Eberron Dominel Nicole RN NTD CGC is a Russian Import. She is such a sweet girl. In this picture, she was just a young puppy and a true love. We specialize in importing healthy, gorgeous, intelligent Swissies with wonderful temperaments. Harper is our 3rd Swissie Import. We do expect to have puppies in 2018 so if you are interested in a puppy please look at our future litter page.
Pictured below is also one of our Imports. Max came to us from Poland. He has the best temperament one could ask for and has earned many awards. We love our boy Max. Max UKC CH UWP AKC SILVER GRCH CH Witkacy Caveat Actor WWDS RN BN TDI TDHN CGCA CGCU TT PCD CD NTD TKN FDC ACE
Our Max showing off his herding skills. What a good boy he is, he didn't even eat the sheep!
Max is a very versatile Swissy and is structurally sound he can do the jobs he was bred to do.
Honor loves Cliff. Broholmers do not have a high prey drive and they get along very well with other animals, especially cats, as you can see. Cliff adores Honor and well, she does like Cliff a lot but doesn't understand why he loves her so much!!
In this picture is Chris with his boys Axl and Brand. These handsome hunks are enjoying a beautiful late fall day hiking. Both Broholmers and Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs make great hiking companions and do enjoy carrying a Pack. They have great endurance and being outdoors with their family is probably their most favorite activity. And actually it is what we enjoy the most also. Brand "Blackamber's I'm On Fire" is from our first litter of Broholmers. Our "Born In The USA" litter. He lives in Georgia with his loving parents, dad Chris (pictured) and mom Kelly and Brother Axl (also pictured) in Georgia. We feel very lucky to have found such a great home for our wonderful boy Brand.
