Vinland Bernese

Vinland Bernese Bernese Mountain Dogs It was in 1989 that our love for the Bernese Mountain Dog began. At this time a beautiful little puppy from the Pattersons Sanmarco's Kennel was brought into our lives.

From then on it was a relationship that could not be broken. Since this time we have worked with our dogs obtaining various titles which include, Can. Championships, Companion Dog, Canine Good Neighbour, Rally-O as well as Search & Rescue, agility and draft work training. We feel that for the betterment of the breed, selective breeding must be done once both Sire & Dam have all health clearances as well as proper conformation, titles and temperament. Waiting to have the right set of animals who match each other well is how we feel you gain the best results and animals. Our animals are more than pets to us, they are our family and our lives. We hope you enjoy all of our photos of this great breed as we surely enjoy them. Vinland Kennels

Welcome to Vinland Bernese CKC registered breeders of Bernese Mountain Dogs.

Currently we do not have any puppies available. As we are very particular with our breeding, we only breed when we have very suitable dogs. We are strict on health testing, temperament, conformation and working dog suitability and therefore are extremely selective with breeding.

Please send all inquiries to our email, [email protected]. We receive many requests and it is challenging to reply via Facebook Messenger.

Thank you,
Vinland Bernese

The art of training your dog to do nothing! πŸΎπŸ˜ŽπŸ€”

The art of training your dog to do nothing! πŸΎπŸ˜ŽπŸ€”

The art of "doing nothing"...what is the place command ❓..
.
Here Ambi demonstrates a "place" command on a foam pad in the rear of my car, during a search and rescue training day. Does your dog constantly pace around the house, begging for attention, nudging your hands, pawing at you, do they wine, or cry? Well chances are each dog has their own way of expressing that they want attention, but have the earned it and do they need it? Does your dog know how to simply Relax πŸ–οΈ and do nothing...
.
The place command trains your dog to down-stay on a rug, mat, pad or anything they can physically lay on. We train our dogs to do this so they can have some much needed down time. A dog that is constantly pushing for attention is not settled, exercise is vital, but we also train our dogs to relax calmly and that it's a great thing!
.
We initially train the place command, which is a combination of target training, down and stay, trained in intervals. We build up duration by increasing the time span that they perform the place. This allows us to place our dogs when we are cooking, cleaning, people enter the home or we need them to stay in a specific position such as Ambi on her pad in the car during search and rescue training days.
.

Loose Leash walking? Let our Ambi show you how it's done! Message Vinland K9 for more info on training packages for leash work! πŸ™‹πŸΎπŸ•

Loose Leash Walking Explained....πŸΎβ˜€οΈ
.
.
The goal of a loose leash walk is not to restrain your dog by your side, it's not to prevent them from enjoying their surroundings, taking in smells and sights that stimulate their senses and brains.πŸ™… The goal is not to have their shoulders in contact with our legs, or have their heads turned up looking at us the entire time. πŸ•
.
Loose leash walks should be enjoyable for both dog and handler, casual and fun.🀸 The dog should walk semi close to your side and keep pace with you, they should be "checking in" with you visually from time to time. This means that they are in tune with what you as the handler are doing at all times. They are aware if you were to stop, they stop, when you move or turn they move or turn with you. The leash remains casually loose and may not pull tight. Here Ambi demonstrates what this looks like, this dog has 5 years of consistent learning and understands what I ask of her due to repetitions of training exercises. πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ™Œ

RIP Our sweet Loki. xo Bobbi, Gary, Melanie and Josh

On behalf of the Newfoundland Search Dogs, we would like to say a final farewell to our K9 Loki. Loki and Gary are one of the longest standing K9 partnerships with the group and we are willing to say the most dedicated. Loki (And Gary) certified in wilderness and urban air-scenting under NLSD three times and is one of the original two K9 teams to certify with us. She was a very kind, dedicated and consistent dog who would work for Gary without hesitation and with determination for her job.

Our team will never be the same without Loki, but she has been a foundation stone and an example that those of us who know her can never forget.

Thank you Loki for your contribution to our team and for being part of our roots.

On behalf of all the Newfoundland Search Dogs,

Melanie
President NLSD

Vinlands Audr BaylilysDottir certified search and rescue dog

This past winter, one of our volunteer hiders started wearing a Go-Pro when hiding for our K9 teams. We find these videos helpful to identify areas for improvement in our training, but it's also just really enjoyable to see how the dogs work from the hider's perspective. :)

Here's Odi and her handler on a search back in February. Odi finds her 'missing person' and then goes back to her handler to 'alert' that she's found someone. You'll notice Odi repedely returning to the hider, acting as a guide for her handler.

Take note: of the backpad with the 100 year old Rumble bells made in England that Loki is wearing with her Traditional style Newfoundland work dog harness made by Gary Barnes who learned his craft from Harnessmaker Jack Phelan 47 years ago. This style of harness dates back to early 1800's in Newfoundland and is crafted to this day by Gary. It consists of the harness leather felt lined collar, leather felt lined backpad, traces and whiffle tree. If you could hear these bells ring and smell the leather it may bring you back to memories of By gone days in NFLD when dogs were used for work companions in the woods and on the shores.
