How we got started
Water Oak farm is a 23 acre, working farm, in north east Georgia. We are family owned and operated. We raise a variety of animals including but not limited to horses, chickens, goats and the occasional pig. Sometimes we even have a calf, ducks, sheep or a calf or two. Our Bernese Mountain dogs are true to their breed. They are loyal companions, hard workers, staunch guardians and gentle playmates. Our BMD's have an awesome pedigree with a lot of imports from European lines. Some of our pups have 40+ champions and/or titles in their pedigree. Quite a few of their ancestors are multiple champs. Our dogs are excellent guardians to our horses and family members. My passion for BMD's started 19 years ago. I needed a bit of help on the farm. We raised a lot of our own food and I needed a multi purpose dog to assist me in the everyday work associated with a small farm. Our dogs are excellent at their jobs. Not only are they wonderful guardians to our livestock but some of them are also excellent drafting dogs. Some of our girls help out by pulling the garden cart to and from the barn. They also help in the garden by pulling the wagon while I am picking vegetables and pulling weeds. Our girls also love to go with us hiking in the woods or just walking through the neighborhood. All of our girls like to have their packs harnessed on and away we go. They always love to work and look forward to their daily chores. Our sires "Whiskey" & "Grascal" are the guardians to our horses. They are both very loving and friendly. Grascal is always alert and aware of everything in his pastures. Whiskey will now be learning a new job which is to pull the hay cart while I am throwing out hay to the horses. Since we have several horses this is no small chore. Our girls are excellent guardians to our mares. They are very kind and gentle. They love attention and adore swimming in the water tanks. Most of our Berners are very fond of water and simply love going for a ride with me and spending some quality time. Our Berners tend to believe that every ride in the truck should end with a stop at the local fast food place for a few chicken strips!!
