Mattie and her people (often referred to as her staff!), welcome you to Black Velvet Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs.
We are an experienced “all about dogs” home, both personally and professionally. Mac is a dog trainer, and Gaby is a veterinarian and long time breeder of Newfoundland Dogs. At the moment, we share our home with one Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, two Newfoundland Dogs, and any number of canine students and guests.
This site is dedicated to our Swiss Mountain Dog breeding program, as more than a decade long dream begins to unfold for the first time.
Within these pages we hope you will enjoy learning about the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, and come away with a sense of who we are as passionate educators, breeders and lovers of the Swissy.
