Bella's Kennel

Over fifty years in Longbranch, Washington,
committed to ethical breeding of Bernese Mountain Dogs and organic farming.

Growing up with Bernese Mountain Dogs

I was born in 1963, the same year that our kennel namesake, Bella Vom Moosboden, was whelped in Switzerland.  For most of my life I've been lucky enough to live on this peaceful farm with generations of prize winning Bernese Mountain Dogs.  My experience has shown me that these dogs dedicate their lives to the farm and their masters.  They live only to be with their people and so you will never find more adult dogs on my farm than the farm can easily accommodate both physically and psychologically.
