Paradise Mountain Dogs Welcomes you to our website. We are dedicated to producing happy, healthy and well adjusted puppies in our home. Our Purebred Mountain dogs come from long lines of show champions from the US and Europe and have proven to produce an incredible offspring.
At Paradise Mountain Dogs we have a great love for the Great Pyrenees, Bernese and Great Bernese Mountain Dogs. Located in the Minneapolis Metro area, our dogs are AKC Registered, genetically tested and OFA cleared for hips/elbows, cardiac, thyroid and eyes to produce a healthy premium offspring. Our puppy parent customer satisfaction is our focus and want to make your adoption experience the best it can be.
Our breeding dogs are carefully selected. They must pass the OFA health clearances with a good or excellent rating, are genetically tested and cleared of any breeding line defects. It is our goal and passion to insure the healthiest lines possible. We believe that young puppies should have the opportunity to develop emotionally, socially and physically from the moment they're born.
We ensure that puppies are given the right balance of stimulation, play and rest so they enjoy learning and never feel overwhelmed. All of our puppies are dewormed, will have 1st round vaccinations, microchip and have dew claws removed. Puppies come with a 1 year health guarantee.
Pyrenees, Bernese and Great Bernese mountain dogs are well known for their mild temperaments loyalty and love of family (especially children). Why the mixing of the Bernese and Great Pyrenees? Although we are passionate about our purebreds, this incredible mix produces the absolute best of both worlds that creates a healthier dog with longevity of life and pure beauty. Any one of these mountain dogs will be your loyal friend all of their life.
This hybrid dog is an ideal choice for families with children and other pets as well as single owners. These dogs are adaptable to both indoor and outdoor living but shouldn't be kept in very warm to hot climates. Among their most prominent traits are calm, good-natured, hard-working, intelligent and loyal.
These hybrid pups range from $2000-$2500+tax. A $500 non-refundable deposit is required when the pups have reached 2 weeks of age to reserve a puppy.
Discounts apply for those who qualify to be placements for a breeder's choice guardian home.
A Breeder's Choice Guardian Home is a unique co-ownership plan designed to keep the breeder's "pick of the litter" for line breeding while the qualifying applicant places the dog in their home as the forever family at a discounted price.
What is the objective of the breeder?
The breeder will maintain partial ownership rights for breeding the dog to maintain the breeder's line. The breeder is responsible for the cost of genetic testing, health clearances, dog show registration fees (if applicable) any vet bills related to reproduction and spay/neuter at the time of retirement. At the age of retirement ( typically age 6 for a female) the dog will be given full ownership to the guardian home family. We feel that it is much more beneficial for our line breeding dogs to have the individual love and attention from a family they deserve vs living in an overcrowded kennel environment.
What is the responsibility of the Guardian?
The Guardian seeks to provide a puppy with a loving forever home and also support the breeder’s breeding needs through the Guardian Home Program
The qualifying guardian home Is responsible for puppy/dog socialization and training, routine vet exams and vaccinations, monthly Heartguard/ Frontline treatments as well as any vet bills as a result of illness or injury in their care. Most importantly your Love and attention.
What is the benefit to the qualifying applicant?
As a qualifying guardian home you get the "pick of the litter" at a discounted rate (usually 1/2 of the full purchase price) and the dog stays with you as your family dog for the life of the dog and we retain breeding rights for a set time period.
We offer guardianship for males and female Great Bernese Mountain Dogs. Each gender and breed is subject to their own unique rules for the plans of the dog selected to carry on their line. Males have a much simpler guardian home contract, but may last longer. A detailed contract will be implemented for each individual guardianship.
Qualifying applicants must live within 30 minutes or Minneapolis/ St. Paul.
