Make an informed choice.
It is hard to look past the gorgeous dog and think about how that dog will fit into your daily life; however, it is something you must do before deciding to add a Swissy to your family. We believe it is best to ignore descriptions of the breed that say Swissies are great family dogs, because they are only great family dogs for the right families.
Large-breed working dogs must always be closely supervised around children. Kids cannot be expected to read the dog’s body language, and it really isn’t fair to ask any dog to just accept whatever behavior a child exhibits toward them. If you have children in your family, please consider the temperament information very carefully, and be prepared for us to ask a lot of questions about how you plan to manage a Swissy around your children.
One of our priorities as breeders is placing our dogs where we believe they will be successful. We are looking for outstanding homes who will commit to proper training and management of this breed. We hope that might be you!
