Octavia

95lbs.–25″tall

Octavia was imported from Europe at 3 months of age. She has developed into a beautiful, stocky, well built Bernese. I purchased Octavia and her two sisters Onyx and Opal.  I like to purchase a few pups from the same litter so I can evaluate the temperaments and genetics of the lines I’m breeding. Not only was I able to make sure that their vertical pedigree met my requirements by researching parentage, but by purchasing siblings I’m also able to see what their horizontal pedigree is like by evaluating and health testing the siblings in the litter. Since I own 3 siblings in this litter it made this process easy. I’m happy to announce that all 3 sibling passed all their health clearances, so not only does Octavia have a solid vertical pedigree but also a solid horizontal pedigree.

Not only does Octavia have a long history of health tested lineage she is also a stunning bernese with a stocky build. She has an amazing personality. She is easy going, friendly with all dogs and people, smart, attentive and willing to work for treats. She is a people pleaser. A lot of bernese can have stubborn streak but I do not see this in her lineage. She is very friendly, loves everyone and will do anything for a treat. She is everything I love to see in the Bernese I carefully select for my breeding program.

Octavia has recently passed her health clearances and will be joining the SwissRidge program on a trial basis as I evaluate the puppies she produces.
