Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of Trout Creek Swiss Mountain Dogs. We are located in the Pacific Northwest and live in the heart of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge eight miles north of Carson, Washington. Here at Trout Creek, I focus on producing exceptional quality Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs bred to excel at working and performance events, in the conformation ring and above all else, at being wonderful family companions.
I have been very active in the breed since 1998 when my beautiful foundation bitch BISS Ch. Snowy Mountain Flurry CGC, TT, HCT, ROM joined our family. My breeding program is dedicated to the betterment of the breed through selective breeding practices and the education of prospective and new puppy owners. I strive to produce dogs with the qualities I value most which include health, temperament, longevity, soundness of mind and body, correct structure and breed type who have a willingness to work at the tasks they were originally bred to do. My puppies are raised with the greatest of care then selectively placed in appropriate and loving homes. Throughout my years in the breed I have found gratification from serving the swissy community in various areas. Currently I'm a board member for the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Rescue Foundation. In the past I have acted as show chair for regional GSMDs specialties, held various board positions for the Cascade Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club, served on the Board of Directors for the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club of America, judged sweepstakes at our 2013 GSMDCA National Specialty, and have lead many pack hikes as the pack coordinator. I regularly attend AKC conformation shows with my swissies in Washington and Oregon and when time allows I thoroughly enjoy draft/carting work and herding. The Pacific Northwest offers many wonderful outdoor options and on a daily basis I enjoy hiking with my dogs.
Inquiries are always welcome! If you have any questions about my dogs, my breeding program, upcoming litters or the breed in general, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Visitors are welcome by appointment. Thank you! Bonnie
