We are now offically UKAS Certificated Kennel Club Assured Breeders & passed our last Kennel Club inspection, on 10th September 2014 with flying colours.
We welcome you to our
web site, built and designed by Philippa Green Web Design. We are one of the only breeders of Bernese Mountain Dogs in Norfolk and have two Bernese Stud Dogs available to approved bitches.
Mountain Dogs are bred in a home family environment, being reared with young children and other family pets and are bred
for temperament, health and to type. They are family pets first and
foremost but enjoy showing nationwide at championship and open shows
as well as enjoying all Bernese Mountain Dog club events along with
carting, agility and obedience.
We are one of the only Kennel
Club Assured Breeders of Bernese in the UK that rear our puppies with young children. We take considerable time researching
a potential litter's pedigree before we choose a stud dog. With the
hope that we breed good quality sound puppies with the view of keeping
pick of the litter to show and perhaps later breed from. We breed
for temperament, health and to type. We do not just put any old Bernese with another to make a fast buck. Our puppies are lavishly reared to very high standards and we strongly believe in doing things properly. In turn we are always there for our puppy owners and give a full after sales package of care and support. When you have a Pasturegreen puppy you become part of our extended family, Team Pasturegreen.
We are different to most Bernese breeders in that we record in pictures the life of each of our puppies. We photograph our litters every day for the first eight weeks of their lives which are our Litter Diaries and then for the first year we ask the new families for pictures of their puppy each month and then quarterly there after, which are our Litter Showcases. The story of each of our puppies from our more recent litters can be see here on our web site with each puppy having their own page from eight weeks. We also actively encourage our families to attend Bernese club events all over the country where upon we encourage the children and adults of these families to take part in the club's activities and in turn we reward them with Team Pasturegreen gifts and usually lay on some form of feast for all the families to enjoy.
our dogs live in our family home and enjoy our family holidays. Where
the dogs aren't
welcome we don't go and spend most of our holidays on the North Yorkshire
enjoying the lovely walks and playing on the beach at Runswick Bay.
We thrive for all our
dogs to achieve their Kennel
Club Good Citizen awards in Bronze, Silver
and Gold and to achieve an Excellance in their
Bernese Character assessment. Along with a good grounding of knowledge
and hopefully skill at carting, obedience and agility. This we feel
gives all our dogs enough training to be able to cope with any situation
they may encounter during their lives.
dogs are well socialised from birth or from the time they arrive
at our home at 8 weeks and we work hard
to ensure that we can take our dogs everywhere and anywhere so
that they get used to as many different situations as possible in
months. Many heads have turned over the years as the Green
have boarded steam trains, boats or have entered pubs for Sunday
lunch with as many as eight Bernese mountain dogs in tow.
much as we thoroughly enjoy showing our Bernese, we also very much enjoy
carting and working the dogs as they were bred to do. Our Sophie's
tail never wagged more than when
to our four wheel traditional Swiss wooden cart. The carting world
of the Bernese is totally different from the show world
very nice to be part of both.
is nothing more wonderful than owning a Bernese Mountain Dog,
they have to be the most beautiful of all the dogs in the world,
but they are not suited to everyone or everyone's living/working
powerful dogs with fabulous colourings and markings they are
a head turner
you might go. As many have said Bernese can be quite addictive
and one is never enough!
