Our family are Britt and Lars Pinderud, our twinboys Simen and Anders who are 21 years old, and our four dogs; the Shetland Sheepdog male Xit and the Bernese Mountain Dog female Gozita are 9 years old. In July 2011 we bought a grey Belgian Shepherd Tervueren male; Marco who is 6 years old. We have kept a stabijfemale from Ambras second litter, Delphi, who is 4 years old.
Lars and his familiy had a Golden Retriever male; Jacko, when he grow up. Britt always wanted a dog from she was a child, but it didn't become a reality before she in 1987 bought a Bernese Mountain Dog female, Sally. In 1990 Lars bought his first dog, the BMD Amigo. We met eachother through the Norwegian Bernese Mountain Dog Club, area Oslo and Omegn in 1992, and we can for sure say that it was Sally and Amigo which lead us together.
We also had two groenendael; the female Vezita and the male Quatro, both from Kennel Sabako, and one tervueren; the female Tanita. The Berner Sennen female Siane was put asleep in the beginning of September 2009. In the beginning of May 2011 our first Friese Stabij female Alfi was put asleep, much too early, only 9 years old. Our mix dog Uzy was put asleep in the end of February 2015, he was almost 13 years old. Three months later we had to say goodbye to Ambra as well, she was 10 years old. We kept her from Alfis first litter, she was the firstborn in Norway and here with us. All these dogs are deeply missed and you can read more about them at Our dogs.

Our breed are small, the first litter with stabij came in March 2005, the second in March 2007, the third in April 2010, the fourth in March 2013 and the fifth in the end of April 2016. In April 2012 we had our first litter with Berner Sennen puppies after waiting about 20 years. We think it's important that the puppies are soscial when they get to their new homes, that's why they grow up together with us. The first three weeks they are at a room alone together with the mother, but visitors are coming and going from time to time. Rest of the time until delivery they live together with us in the livingroom where there are a lot of noise from the TV, vacuumcleaner etc. They also get used to children, both our own and others, and the other dogs in the family.
The pedigreename we have taken from the farm we moved to 1st of December 2015. The place is Sandsvær, Kongsberg Commune, between Skollenborg and Hvittingfoss.
