Living With A Swissy Blue View Farm is found nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in Cross Junction, Virginia. We all thoroughly enjoy the peacefulness that is found living "out of town". At Blue View, we are hobby breeders of Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs and therefore produces limited numbers of puppies. We greatly value the responsibility of raising puppies in a manner which sets them up for a happy lifetime with their new families. Our dogs can be found competeing in AKC agility, AKC conformation, obedience, rally, drafting, and herding, as well as just being wonderful, active pets for their loving families-- these dogs are as versatile as a Swiss Army knife!
