Arrowhead Farm is a certified organic farm in Nelson BC and the home of Kootenay Mountain Dog, where our Bernese Mountain Dogs are raised in the healthiest environment possible.
There is no place like home… We say that not only with love for our corner of the world, but also acknowledging how incredibly lucky we are to call Nelson and the Kootenays our home.
It just doesn’t get any better… The natural beauty of this place with the majestic Kootenay Lake and spectacular mountain ranges, the clean air and abundant fresh water, mild climate with snowy winters and hot summers allowing for growing organic food for our community- we truly can’t imagine a better place to live, farm, and raise a family.
Both of us grew up in the mountains: Martin in the Swiss Alps and Tanya in the Northern Caucasus, and now our children are growing up in the Kootenays, which probably means we will forever need mountains to feel at home!
Coming from a Swiss cheesemaking family, Martin grew up with Bernese mountain dogs and when the time came to choose a family companion and our first farm dog, there was no question as to which breed would be perfect for this environment.
The gentle loving nature of Berners, their intelligence and strength and loyalty to their people make them an outstanding breed. They are also incredibly good looking.
We are proud to present the first litter of Bernese Mountain puppies born on our farm. They will be raised with children and other animals 🙂 on raw organic diet, giving them the healthiest and best possible start in life.
