OUR BREEDING DOGS
Family and friend in one!
Our dogs are very close to us and a real part of our family. In the first place, they are our beloved pets. We take them to holidays and they are family members with each their own character, just like our kids. We feel very blessed having them in our lives. It is this unique feeling that we want to share with you. There can not be enough love around us, ever. In plus, dogs keep you fit in every weather :)
Only secondly, some of our dogs are chosen for breeding. They fill our house with little bundles of joy, one of which maybe finds her or his forever home in your heart. We only breed with our dogs when we have enough families on our waiting/wish list. It is not about quantity, but quality, here at Swiss Mountain Cobberdogs. The perfect new friend, from our family to yours.

All our dogs are fully tested before breeding
By DNA testing, we can screen our dogs on a wide variety of genetic conditions, like EIC, PRA/PRCD, DM, v. Willibrand Disease, etc. The DNA status of all our breeding dogs is on their individual page.
All our breeding dogs are tested on HD (hipdysplasia) and ED (elbow dysplasia), by X-rays. Again, test results are on their individual page. We can tell you more about how to prevent HD in your future puppy.
Every year, our breeding dogs get a full eye examination by a specialist. They are checked on entropion, cataract, MPP, PHTVL/PHPV, RD, CEA, PRA,... with an official ECVO certificate.
