We first learned about the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog in 2000 from a special on "Animal Planet". We started looking for a breeder, but didn't find anyone locally at that time. We then filled the "pet" spot in our family with a Lowchen. Darby shared our home and our love for 11 years. When she passed away, we began looking again to find our Swissy. In 2011, we found several breeders here in Colorado. We applied for a "companion" puppy. Somehow in the process between application and realizing our dream, we committed to a "show" puppy, and our lives haven't been the same since! We've got Swiss!
IntCH GCH CH CedarCove's O Pretty Saphira WWD WWDX WWDS
Our first bitch, "Dragon" (IntCH GCH CH CedarCove's O Pretty Saphira WWD, WWDX, WWDS) conforms beautifully to the AKC breed standard, shines in the show ring, excels in weight pulling, and most of all is an amazing family member.

IntBA CH CedarCove's Powder Keg at Columbine
Miss Pyrrho ("Powder"), our second bitch (IntBA CH CedarCove's Powder Keg at Columbine), is another nice example of the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. She has an intense herding instinct, can still be a goofy puppy at three years old, and loves playing with dogs who come to visit us! Many more adventures and much more fun to be had!
