It was in 1970 when I became fascinated with the greater swiss mountain dogs. The description of the breed appeared in the popular dog book by the late Mr Lubomir Smyczyński, together with the photo, shown below. That description fitted to my idea of a large, strong and alert dog that has stable temperament, is devoted to its master, children and family, yet in the same time reserved with strangers, capable of guarding and protecting, but showing no unnecessary aggresion. And this is what the GSMD is - it combines qualities of an excellent nurse and bodyguard. Their superb sense of smell, together with its willingness to co-operate with humans, enables it to work as a rescue dog and cart dog.Great Swiss Mountain Dog

Bred for Ability, Temperament and Style!
This breed is "Complete" as a hunting and family companion. They possess exceptional noses, unbelievable desire and drive. These gun dogs have a deliberate search in the field. The Braque du Bourbonnais are calm, affectionate family companions. They are wrapped up in a medium sized package that is easily maintained with their short, minimal shedding, "Wash-and-wear" coats.
We produce puppies that have strong natural abilities both in the field and water, combined with excellent dispositions. A distinct difference, with this intense pointing dog, is their ability to train easily and quickly...even for the first time dog handler. We raise our puppies IN our non-smoking home. They are always current on ALL vaccinations and de-worming's which includes frequent, thorough, vet examinations in addition to receiving an ID microchip. Our puppies are socialized with children, adults and other canines.
