In 1990 we got our first Bernese Mountain Dog from
Switzerland, Alfa vom Buchenbühl, “Sandy” (A1 0/0). Sandy
will always have a huge space in our hearts and we are very
happy that the line from our first Berner is still
continuing in our breeding. At the moment, Maroussia
JQ-litter (2010) are the 8th generation offspring after
The start of everything: Alfa vom Buchenbühl with her
daughter FIN CH Maroussia
From the first Maroussia-litter (born 1993) FIN CH Maroussia
Alfaberlina “Jetta” (A 0/0) stayed home. We get to keep her
14 years. Jetta was everything a Berner should be; gentle
and self-confident, lived a long and healthy life visiting
the vet only for her vaccinations and she was beautiful.
Jetta gave birth to 4 litters, easily and without caesarian
sections and she was full of life until the very end. Jetta
was a dream that will stay in our minds forever and she is
also a goal for us, just the kind of Berner we want to breed.
Breeding Bernese Mountain Dogs is very rewarding, but also
very challenging. No one can do it just on their own, so
co-operation with both Finnish and foreign breeders is very
important. We have imported several dogs from abroad and
Maroussia-dogs . The latest export was “back” to the
homeland of the breed, Switzerland.
All Maroussia-litters are planned very carefully. Our goal
is to breed long-living, healthy, well-moving, good-tempered
and beautiful Berners that conform to breed standard and
give joy to their families as a versatile companion, at home
and in various dog activities.
We are trying to find the best possible families for our
dogs and we will provide them with specific feeding and
caring instructions. We hope that the co-operation with
Maroussia-dog owners will last for the dogs whole life and
hope to hear from their possible use in breeding and all the
significant things in their lives. We think that open
sharing of information is extremely important in breeding
Bernese Mountain Dogs, so we are collecting health and other
information about our breeding to our homepage.
We arrange Berner meetings, Berner birthdays and all kinds
of Berner fun whenever it is possible.
