Thank you for visiting my web page. My name is Tracy Bolman. My husband and I have owned and raised Bernese Mountain Dogs for over 15 years. We have a small hobby farm on 40 acres in Holland, Michigan. We have three young adult children; Ashley who is 24, Kristina 21 and Austin 21. (thus the name AKA) They have played integral rolls in raising puppies with us. Not only do they help with the overall care of the puppies; but they also bring their friends over to socialize the puppies. It is a big commitment and we strive to do a good job every time. We only have one to two litters a year.

My first dog Keena came from Dr. Randy Carpenter. We were very blessed to start with such a beautiful, healthy dog with an amazing pedigree. Since then we have had many amazing dogs in our home. One of them was Ellie who came from the late Eve Menegoz. Ellie was a dream for me as Eve Menegoz is considered to be a pioneer of the BMD breed. All of these dogs had good health and solid clearances. Although some of them have since passed; I leave their clearances up on my web page as a reference. Currently I have Lila who will be 2 in January and Rayna. Rayna is the great grand-daughter of Ellie. My breeding program has remained the same for many years. I continue to always have 3 dogs. Two females and one male. I have found that this is the number of dogs that allows me to give each the time they deserve. At one time I tried having five dogs and I quickly realized I could not give them the time they deserved. Lila will be getting her heart and eyes certified in December 2022 with the rest to follow in January when she turns 2. Hondo my male has excellent hips (OFA) and his heart and eyes will also be done December 2022. I pride myself on owning dogs that are the proper representation of the breed. Big beautiful heads, tight eyes, strong bone, wavy coat and good markings. Although some believe good markings are the key to a good BMD health and personality should always be the top two priorities.

Years ago when I first became involved in the breed I would show my dogs and attend local dog shows. It was a chance for me to learn pedigrees, and see exactly what makes up a good sound dog. It gave me the ability to learn from some of the veterans that have owned and raised this breed for years. I really value what I learned and would not be where I am today without that knowledge. However after a few years it was clear that I did not enjoy the show seen. It kept me away from my family on the weekends and was a huge time commitment and financial commitment. It was also very difficult to see my dogs in crates all weekend when they would rather be running around on the farm with our family. I give credit to those people that have shown for years because I have seen what a huge commitment it is. Every breeder has a different idea of how to raise puppies. We have made it a family experience and something that we do together. We have plenty of references if you chose to adopt a puppy from us. I thank you for taking the time to read this. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
