The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is a 'bold, faithful, willing worker. Alert and vigilant.' *
The Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs (Grosser Schweizer Sennenhund), fondly called 'Swissies' or 'Swissys', were originally used as a draft dog and a drover. The Swissy is not just another pretty face, it's a large, powerful and confident Working Dog with a keen fondness for their owners. They are challenging to raise but, given time and training, mature into wonderful companions. Please, gather breed information, call for more information and schedule a visit to meet a few Swissies before deciding that this is the right breed for you and your family. Welcome and enjoy researching the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog.
'The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is a Draft and Drover Breed and should structurally appear as such. It is a striking, tri-colored, large, powerful, confident dog of sturdy appearance.' *
Hello, my name is Nancy Sturgis. I'm a breeder, owner and exhibitor of GREATER SWISS MOUNTAIN DOGS for work, show or companionship. 'Alki' is my AKC registered kennel name. Good temperament, overall soundness, health and type continues to be my primary goal for each and every Alki Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. With each generation, I strive to match well structured, compatible and complimentary GSMD with good soundness, stable temperaments and positive health testing as adults in my quest to maintain and improve the wonderful qualities that this breed naturally possesses. AKC registered Swissy puppies, stud service and adults are occasionally available to those qualified. It's important to me and my lifetime commitment to each Alki Swissy, before any placement or breeding is agreed upon, that a sustainable, cooperative relationship is established in friendship, so I can provide advice, support and participate in their well being throughout each Swissy's entire lifetime. Located in the Greater Seattle area, come visit us at home or attend an eventto experience Conformation, Freight haul, Draft work, Herding or Obedience.
