There will never be a kinder more  gentle dog 
     Miss you Tu Tu

Timmy was my first show dog. He was co owned with his breeder.  He was not raised 100% naturally.  He was vaccinated per his conventional vet and the breeders recommendation.  He had coccidia as a puppy and was treated with antibiotics.  He started having problems with prostate inflammation when he was three and was treated multiple times with antibiotics.  I knew better than to do all of these things but didn't have the courage to go against the grain as a brand new person in the breed.  Not a year after a very harsh antibiotic he was diagnosed with cancer.  I have deep regrets BUT he taught me to have courage.  The courage that I gained because of him has allowed be to help countless people learn how to raise their dogs holistically.  

He was raw fed with very little kibble as a puppy. He never received chemical parasite control.

CH Brookhills No Doubt About It - Timmy

I can't thank Debbie enough for trusting me with this boy.  Oh "Timmy Tu Tu"  you keep me on my toes.  Timmy is a very smart active Berner who always wants to be busy playing or learning something new.  It only takes a couple of tries for him to master a new trick or skill.  He is the sweetest boy who loves to climb on my lap and give kisses.  He loves every human and animal he meets and fit right into our home.  He and Jack are two peas in a pod and are always together.


Timmy is a very striking, typey boy.  He has a very handsome masculine head with a strong clean white muzzle and broad flat skull complimented with dark eyes and a gentle expression.  His movement is clean coming and going.  He finished his Championship with limited showing 100% owner handled with 16 points and 3 majors.

Good bye Muffin  -Maybe one day we will create a mini Muffin


Camden was my third Bernese Mountain Dog and second show dog.  He was Timmy's nephew.  He benefited from my constant desire to do better.  He was vaccinated by his breeder at 8 weeks for parvo and distemper and then at 12 weeks.  He was then titer tested and had immunity throughout his life.  Camden was 100% raw fed from 8 weeks.  He never ate one piece of kibble in his life.  He was never given conventional parasite control, had filtered water and a home free of harmful chemical.  He never received an antibiotic or other conventional drug.  He was a very healthy and vibrant dog his entire life.  He never had hot spots, ear infections or loose stool. I have zero regrets but I have since learned more and my position on a few things has changed.

CH Brookhills No Doubt About It - Camden

Cam Cam Muffin Man.  He got that name because he had one of the best fuzzy puppy heads which is no surprise as he grew a very thick adult coat.  Camden is a very easy going dog and loves attention.  There is never enough cuddle time for Cam.  His favorite part of dog shows was laying on his grooming table and waiting for people to come pet him.  He is now a veteran and vibrantly healthy.  He is my first dog that has been 100% raw feed from 8 weeks and has never received any conventional parasite control or any other drugs and has not been vaccinated since he was a puppy.   

Camden has sturdy bone, thick straight coat, strong muzzle, elbows well set under his shoulder and a deep chest.  His movement is clean coming and going.
