Testimonials from our Happy Bernese Customers!

Hi Lynn,
We thought we’d let you know how our Bailey girl is doing. At 7 months old now she weighs 65 lbs. She came out of Nitro and Mishka and is absolutely gorgeous! She is extremely athletic and will either make us healthier or take years off our lives. She is truly a wonder. With her beauty, she could be pictured in any Berner Christmas calendar. She may be the smartest dog we've ever had but more important is how mentally well balanced she is. Always confident and happy and ever so loving, with a healthy amount of the dickens just waiting to come out. When we decided to get a Berner for a family pet we thought we would get a very good dog.....what we got from you and Haystack Acres is an amazing, awesome, super dog and we are so grateful every day that we chose you for our breeder. Should any of your potential clients want a reference, they're welcome to call or email us. Hope all is well with you and the gang.

Hello Lynn!
Just thought I'd send you some current pictures of Timber. He's doing so well and getting so big so fast. He's been such a pleasure to train and does so well on outings and even had his first road trip to Arizona with us last week. He'll be headed to California with us for spring break next month too, he's a great travel dog! We are just so in love with this boy, he has the sweetest, happiest disposition.
Hope you are well!

Hi Lynn,
I want to share with you some of my favorite photos of Oliver. He's BEYOND PERFECT!!!! I'M SO IN LOVE!!! He's so smart, such a ham, incredibly sensitive & beyond charming. He's so social that when I walk him in the park and we don't see other people and dogs he whimpers. Oliver and I started our training for him to become a therapy dog and he's a star. Thank you so much for bringing this quickly growing (33 lbs) bundle of massive joy into my life. :)
Best,
Quinn

Lynn,
It's been a while since we last spoke. Just wanted to shoot you a quick email with some photos of Walter. He's an absolute gem, and we couldn't be happier with him! Currently, he is around 62lbs and gaining about 10lbs a month...so he'll be a big ball of hair in no time. Thanks again for working with us on delivering Walter, and feel free to reach out if you'd like us to pass along any other photos in the coming months.
Best,
Steve & Mariel

Hi Lynn,
Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years Eve with your family. We thought we'd check in and give you an update on Mr. Hudson Odell Mear. We love him so much and he's been a wonderful puppy. He is pretty much potty trained now, despite an accident here or there. He sleeps in his kennel every night and through the whole night! He weighs 35 lbs now and is growing so fast! He knows how to sit and lay down. He loves the snow and going on walks. We wanted to thank you again for introducing such a blessing into our lives. Here are a few pictures attached for you to see! Hope all is well.
Thanks,
Allix and Eric Mear

Hey Lynn!
How are you doing? We hope you're doing well! Luke and I just love Harvey and are seriously considering getting him a friend! I wanted to see if Limba has a liter this Fall or any future ones and if so, is there availability on that list? These dogs are just the best!

Hi Lynn,
Joey has been an amazing dog so far. I don’t know if you recall, but you ended up having to keep him a couple of extra weeks for us. At the time, you mentioned that doing so may have been the right thing to do – it certainly was! Every day we thank our lucky stars for him! Joey is 110lbs as of this week. We had him neutered about 2 months ago because he had been a little aggressive with some of the bigger dogs at daycare. Other than that, he may be the sweetest dog in the world. I’ve attached some pictures of him here. I’m hoping sometime in the future, when I stop traveling, even the little bit I do, we can get him a brother to play with. When that happens, I will certainly be reaching out to you again.
Wishing you all the best!
Julian Gutierrez

Lynn,
I'm sorry I haven't emailed you sooner! It's been a busy summer with lots of puppy training :)
We named our girl Misha and are so in love with her!
I hope all is going well in Colorado with you and your family!

Sorry it has been so long Lynn, but a quick update on our two Berners we adopted from you last July. Aside from frequent visits to the vets for antibiotics, probiotics etc. due to rubbish they have eaten, they are fit and healthy. And knock on wood, their stomachs seem to have settled down and we have not had to visit the vet for a month or two now! They are both nudging about 90 lbs and obviously their growth has slowed down; the vet seems very happy with their weight and is encouraging us to keep them lean. They were spayed/neutered just before their first birthday and aside from Barnie hating his cone of shame, were both fine through the procedure. They are loving their life in Breckenridge with record snow last year to play in and long hikes now to let them burn off all that puppy energy. Overall we could not be happier with them as they are so much fun.
I hope things are going well for you. Many thanks,
The Weller family.

Hi Lynn, hope all is well with you and the family. I would love to bring Boss by for a visit some time very soon. "Thank You" greatly for such an amazing canine. Boss is the most beautiful, happy puppy ever. His personality goes on for days! He makes us laugh all the time. He is intelligent, easy to train, loyal, and very loving. Boss is now almost a year old and has matured into a BIG boy. He is pushing 100+ lbs, and to be such a big boy, he is amazingly agile. Our girl pup Gemma & Boss are the best of friends. Completely inseparable!! We just took Boss on his first camping trip, and he loved it!! It is the season, so there will be lots more camping & hiking for all of us to enjoy.
He will definitely live up to his name; he is the BOSS around here! Our Fury Family is now complete! Again "thank you" for such an amazing animal, we love him very much.

Good afternoon Lynn,
I thought I'd take a moment to send you some pictures! I know it's only been a week, but we have some adorable ones! As you can see from the subject line, we named her Lacy.
Hope all is well!
Thanks, Kaelyn

We are absolutely amazed at what an incredible dog Bentley is and, he is so loving and smart. Everything we trained him to do he gets right away! We couldn’t be more pleased with our new family member! He is a rock star at the beach, everyone wants to know about him and, the story of our connection and the how and where he’s from blows people away! Great Stuff Mate!
I will try and get back whenever possible and, connect with you when we do. Thanks for your dedication to the breeding of such fine ‘canine beast’ companions!
We LOVE this dog!

Hi Lynn,
Wes, Cameron, Bubba and Dixie here checking in. How has your fall started off? We have had our hands full with moving in, working hard and loving our puppies!
At 21 weeks the puppies are wonderful. Bubba is a BIG boy and lumbers around a bit oafish like and weighs in at 60 lbs! His paws are the size of baseballs and has a huge head with ears that drag in the water bowl. He's going to follow in his dad and uncle's footsteps size wise we're projecting. He is the mellower of the two but both have such funny personalities.
Dixie is out going and curious. She is more "zingy" and loves nothing more than to spend her days antagonizing Bubba. She loves running around with sticks and jumping off rocks. She has a silky coat with curls where Bubba is still a big fuzz ball- and so soft!
They were within two pounds of each other for a long time but Bubba has started to grow true to his name and has started growing bigger than Dixie. She is now 55 lbs to Bubba's 60. They love playing with each other and they adore toys, sticks, digging holes.... the usual puppy favorites :)
We like to take them out into the world often. They are well-known and loved around Home Depot and Chatacqua Park (we live only a block away). When we come home from being away we are met with grunts and squeaks and wagging tails. They are happy and healthy.
They are learning "big dog" tricks like jumping in and out of the car and abandoning the crate. They are well behaved and they are our whole world. They sure are beautiful too :) we take lots of pictures so if you want or need any for your website we have tons!
We also wanted to thank you again, Lynn. As I mentioned we love these puppies so much and our household feels complete. You are an ideal breeder and we feel so lucky to have gotten our two from such a conscientious breeder who cares so much. Thank you - thank you.
Hope all is well with you,
c&w, b+d

Dear Haystack Acres-
Haystack Acres is a ranch immaculately maintained, staffed by a team of people who love all of their animals and show an incredibly strong work ethic and pride. We are forever grateful for our amazing new family member, Ahi - now 9 months old.
We first came to your gorgeous ranch in July of 2012. We met Luna and instantly fell in love. What a wonderful mama and companion. We hoped if her puppies were even half as gorgeous and sweet as she was, we would be in luck. Well, Ahi is all that and more (says his guardian!).
We were so anxious to get our new puppy home and we are thankful Lynn humored us with many pre-puppy visits. Once we were able to bring Ahi home we knew we would never be able to repay Haystack Acres for this unique, kind, mild-mannered, GORGEOUS creature. He even came home 'mostly' potty trained and slept well. Instantly our hearts were stolen.
He is now our nearly 90 pound lapdog! He has the most wonderful personality. He is kind, happy, easy going, loving and loyal. Ahi is used to many kids playing in the yard, loves nice walks and short hikes, is easily trained and is the son we never had! He is healthy as a horse and we are forever BERNER LOVERS!

Good Morning.
Thought I would drop you a line to let you know Maggie is thriving. She was 91# last week on her 9 month birthday. Maggie and Briscoe go to daycare every week day and they love it. According to Sherry (owner of the daycare), Maggie gets lots of compliments from people that stop throughout the day. Her coat is so shiny and curly. She dwarfs Briscoe now although he is still the boss. So much for my idea of getting a Berner close in size to Briscoe. Oh well, she is perfect at any size. She is the cuddliest dog I’ve ever had, and has to have her morning cuddles and hugs and kisses every day. She’s quite the lap dog as well.

We have had our new little Bernese girl for about 3 weeks now, we named her Blu and she is an awesome addition to our family…our other dogs ( 2 corgis and a golden) are a little jealous still but everyone is adapting. She is growing so fast, every day I pick her up and she is a little heavier..the days of holding her are going to be numbered. She is very healthy, long long legs..I call her spider girl for her nickname right now. She has beautiful freckles that I hope she will keep…I will keep you posted on her progress. Our corgis Annabelle and Winston that we got from you are also doing great – Winston is probably the biggest, longest, most handsome Corgi in the world!
