Breeding Philosophy

We are committed to producing quality puppies with excellent temperaments, health and conformation. We will always continue to strive for dogs that will provide the best results in the field or in the show ring, but most importantly as loving family companions.

Temperament as well as health are our primary concerns and we only breed dogs with full health clearances. We do a number of health checks on our dogs before breeding, including Hip & Elbow x-rays (OFA or OVC), Board Certified Eye Exams (CERF), as well as Board Certified Cardiac Exams (OFA). Some of our dogs may also have further testing on Thyroid, Cone Degeneration and DNA tests for von Willebrand's Disease.

We think it equally important to raise well adjusted, healthy puppies and provide our puppies with all our attention and care while they are with us. Our puppies are raised in our home with our family and are held, loved and socialized until they are old enough to go to their forever homes. In addition to health checks, we also raise our dogs and puppies on a natural diet including unprocessed raw food that is appropriate for canines. We strongly recommend all our potential puppy owners to consider a raw natural diet for their dogs. For further information on feeding a natural diet, please CLICK HERE to visit our Feeding page.

We are further committed to offering our support to all our BigCountry puppy owners for the lifetime they own their dog.

All our puppies are registered with the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC). We are also proud members of the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Canada (GSPCC), the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Ontario (BMDCO), and the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Canada.
