Thank you for visiting our page, let me tell you a little about Rainier Mountain dogs. We are family owned and run, back in 2013 we bought 30 acres of land and built a home on it. It has been our family’s dream to have a small family farm, we have horses, donkeys, chickens, ducks and dogs which many of our animals have been rescued from bad situations. We have loved the Bernese Mountain Dog breed for many years and decided we wanted to make our dream of having our own come true. After much research and time looking for the perfect breeders we have found our dogs, who have great dispositions they love children and other animals they are the perfect pet. When we were searching for our Bernese we found that there were very few breeders in our area so we had to travel across the United States to pick up our babies, it was a long hard trip but well worth it. With many years of experience in breeding Mini Schnauzers, we decided we would take that knowledge and start Rainier Mountain Dogs. Our number one priority is the safety and happiness of our dogs, they are our family members first. We will always make sure our dogs get the best love and care so that they are happy and their babies will be healthy and happy too. We want to find forever homes for our babies we will be very particular who will be able to add one of our babies to their family. Our babies are coming with a limited AKC registration we are not selling our puppies to be used as breeders they are for families who want to add a new family member to their home.
