Blue View Puppies
Our goal is to produce Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs that are, first and foremost, happy, healthy dogs that will enjoy long lives as family pets. We hope, that while achieving this goal, we are also able to produce GSMDs that adhere to the AKC breed standard. Something that I find very important as well, is keeping the working dog spirit alive in this breed. Swissies should be willing workers and physically able to do so.
Our puppies are placed into their new homes with an AKC registration and paid lifetime microchip enrollment. Each puppy will have received several appropriatly timed dewormings and an initial distemper/parvo vaccine during their vet exam. They have been raised in our home and have been socialized with cats and our other dogs and are exposed to the general noises of a home environment. I will have also begun house-training, but never fear-- there is much work left for the new owner! The puppies will also have traveled on several "field trips" to meet strange new friends in new and different environments. After both a temperament evaluation and structural evaluation at 8 weeks, the puppies are assigned to their new homes according to the best fit for the families and puppies. This means that I will have final say in where each puppy will go. Puppies are NEVER placed on a first come, first served basis! If you do not trust my judgement, you should not continue looking for a puppy from me... My goal is a happy puppy with happy owners FOR LIFE!! Much thought is put into each match so that this goal can be fulfilled.
All puppies are placed with either a Limited or Full AKC registration. Show Potential puppies placed with Full registration will be co-owned with the breeder. The current price for a Blue View puppy is $2500.
All puppies are placed on a contract with health guarantee and with a return clause if the owner is ever unable to properly provide for their swissy or cannot keep it for any reason. This means the puppy will always have a place in our home if it's first home does not work out.
If you are unable to pick your puppy up at Blue View Farm, other arrangements can be made in advance. The closest airports are Dulles International (Dulles, VA), Reagan National (D.C.), and Baltimore-Washington International Airport (Baltimore, MD). Puppies will not be shipped in cargo, but owners can fly with their new puppy in the cabin. The new owner will need to purchase a Sherpa brand pet carrier, size large. There will be an additional fee for time and travel costs if the puppy is to be delivered to any of these airports.
