News from Summit Farm....
We moved to Florida in Sept 2015.
We are all getting acclimated to the weather!
We can still be reached at the

We do not plan on having any litters in the near future!
Welcome To Summit Farm
Proud Home of
AKC Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs.
Summit Farm is the kennel name we use for our AKC registered GSMD's. We do not live on an actual farm. We do live on acreage but the only animals we have here are swissies and lots of geckos. We allow visitors with an appointment. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site and find it informative and useful.
All of the swissies that we breed live with us and is a loved, spoiled, cherished family member that shares in all areas of our daily lives.
Our goal will always be to breed top quality swissies that will excel in longevity, health, structure and movement and with a big emphasis on temperament. Any swissy that will be bred here will have all appropriate health clearances. They will also have their AKC championship title or a working title or they will be working towards one.
If you are thinking of adding a swissy to your family please do a lot of research first. Talk to breeders, go to dog shows and read books to learn all you can about the breed.
While swissies can be great family dogs they are not for every family. Getting a GSMD is a lifelong commitment that should not be taken lightly. All family members should be ready to commit to the time and energy it will take to raise a swissy to maturity. Keep in mind that raising a swissy to maturity can take many years.
It takes hours of socialization and training to help them become the wonderful family dogs that they can be. If you do not have the time or the desire to do this for the entire life of the swissy, please get another breed. One that will be happy with you and your lifestyle.

Very proud of our own Summit Farm alumni Selah!
Selah is the model for Costco's dog beds. We think
she is definitely a beauty queen. She is so popular these
days she has her own agent. Life is tough when you
are a gorgeous swissy. Selah is from our Abby/Louie C
We are all proud of our very own Bennett & his dad Aaron for winning the "Westminster Best At Home" photo contest. Over 7000 entries and they won!!!! WooHoo!!! Great job Aaron & Bennett!!
Bennett is the singleton puppy we had in litter B.
Bennett TheSwissy has his very own facebook page.....
he is such a celebrity.
Life is different here in Florida...it's really hot! We spend a lot of time in the house where it is cool and love chasing the critter around the pool....not sure what the critter is yet. We need to catch it to figure that out.
