Welcome to Spellbound
Spellbound was established in 1999. We've had the pleasure of many dogs in our own lives, and enjoy sharing our experience, our love for the beautiful Bernese and our wonderful puppies with many families.
In June 2013, Scott and I relocated to the Chicago area for a job opportunity for him. Moving with all of our pets was a great adventure. After renting for a little more than a year and deciding where exactly we wanted to land - we purchased our home in the west suburbs. We love the new place and close proximity to the city. We have done some improvements, and are really making it our own!
Currently, we have three Bernese: Parker - 6.5, retired and living the good life on the sofa; Fresca, 3, who is currently competing and who we will be breeding next; and little Mari, 9 months. Both Fresca and Mari are Parker's daughters. We also have the pleasure of co-owning dogs with dear friends! We believe that you cannot just collect and keep every dog, they deserve a relationship with their people. Our small numbers reflect that position. Special thanks to those families who are now part of ours forever!
Fresca and her brother Titus have been hitting the show scene and doing a great job! I show from the Bred-By class as a proud breeder/owner/handler. Titus finished his Championship easily. As he continues to mature and learn about stud dog life, he will be out and about as a special when he's ready. Fresca took a break for her first litter and just needs her last major to finish too. Meantime, their sister Kacey finished in fine style with 5 pt majors in just under 4 weeks! She has just had her first litter and is doing a fabulous job!
