Breeder Recommendation NZ

Hi,

 

Can anyone recommend some breeders for St Bernards, Bernese Mountain dogs or any gentle giants in NZ, preferable the North Island but anywhere is NZ is fine.

We are looking to adopt a puppy but not finding much online for these dogs and also making sure none are a puppy mill.

 

Cheers

You can search in the Dogzonline Breeders page with a filter for New Zealand results only.    With giant breeds, I'd be looking for a breeder who has been in the breed for quite a while, and who does all the appropriate health testing and keeps up with developments in the breed .. so probably a breeder who shows dogs and who is familiar with and uses different lines appropriately .. i.e. not just using a pair of dogs they happen to have in the yard.   The breeds are quite different in my opinion, so it might be good to have a think about what you like in a particular breed.   And also to have a look at the life expectancy.
