Prefix : DARKCRUSH (Bernese Mountain Dog)


Our aim at Darkcrush is to produce sound, typical Bernese who can perform in the show & obedience rings, yet ultimately be faithful family companions for both ourselves and our puppy buyers. With us you have breeder support for the life of your pup.

We imported "Lucia" (First Crush From Balihara Ranch - DOB Aug '14) from Slovakia due to her impeccable pedigree and to help expand the Australian gene pool. She is our foundation and has produced one litter for us in July 2017.

Although our dogs have regular vet checks, like all reputable and responsible breeders we screen our breeding stock for Hip & Elbow Displaysia (AVA xray scoring after 12mths of age), Von Willebrands Disease (VwD), and Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) for both genes (SOD1A & SOD1B). We can talk you through the pedigrees of our dogs including lifespans and any known health issues that have arisen. Bernese world-wide have a lifespan of just shy of 8 years, so please do your research into the breed before purchasing.

I am an ANKC breeder ( registered with DOGS Victoria ( and sell all pups with (Limited) papers no earlier than 8wks of age. As I am a small breeder wait times for puppies may vary. I ask that you please only call me on weekends, or between 6pm-9pm weekdays. Email enquiries should include your name/s, location, lifestyle, and what you are looking for in a companion.

SMS enquiries will not be responded to.
