Broker is a very happy and social Berner. He is always eager to greet new people and to him, no one is a stranger. He is a very agile Berner and can spin and jump like no other one we know!

“Bijoue” – Helvetica Bijoue


Born: March 9th, 2008
Sire: Helvetica Rocki
Dam: Braye Nelly

Bijoue came to us from Helvetica Kennels in Ulverton, QC. Her breeder Anne-Marie Bahler is orginally from Switzerland and raises her Bernese in an environment similar to the breeds Swiss origin. All her dogs are fed a natural raw diet and exercised freely in open farmland. With her working heritage and swiss pedigree, Bijoue is a true Swiss Bernese. We were so impressed with Bijoue’s picture of health, it was a major factor in our decision to switch our dogs to a natural raw diet as well. Bijoue is a stunningly beautiful girl, with a lovely head, and level topline. She likes to bark to announce visitors, but she’s very friendly and always wagging her tail.
