2015 AMBASSADOR OF THE BREED
Gypsy Boots has proven to be a quick learner since the day we brought her home, but her quick wit has also been a challenge at times! She is an endless comedian who pulls out all the stops for a treat....she has "I will do just about anything you ask me to for food" attitude. Her smart nature can make her training quite difficult at times -- I can see her wheels spinning when asked for something thinking "What's in it for me?" She is the best first swissy we could have asked for and brings endless joy to our home and those she meets. She is one smart cookie!
Gypsy has excelled in the herding venue over the past several years and also has working and performance titles in drafting, pack dog, rally, and obedience. She is currently training in rally, obedience and herding. In January 2016 Gypsy earned her 3rd leg towards her AKC Obedience Companion Dog (CD) title which also completed the requirements for her GSMDCA Versatility Greater Swiss (VGS) title!
In 2015 Gypsy Boots was awarded the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club of America Ambassador of the Breed award at our National Specialty.

2013 TOP TWENTY PLACING GSMD
Cutter is different from his half-sister, Gypsy. He frequently takes the approach of "slow and steady wins the race" Often times I find him "playing" dumb if he doesn't think the reward justifies the action being requested. One minute you can ask him to sit and he looks at you like you are speaking a foreign language and at others times he puts his rear down as fast as physically possible. Cutter is a deep thinker and seems to like to do things at his pace. Adding Cutter to our family was surely the right fit (for us and for Gypsy)!
Cutter proved himself in the show ring earning his AKC Championship, Grand Championship and even placed in the Top 20 GSMDs in the country in 2013. In addition to his show success, Cutter has earned advanced titles in herding and pack dog.
We are Allison and Blake Allen. We live in the suburbs of Portland, OR. We traveled to Indiana in the winter of 2009 to bring back Gypsy Boots on the plane and since then we have become part of a great community of swissy friends across the country. Cutter joined our family in March 2012 -- we love our two Kayak kids! We hope you enjoy the photo journal showcasing our two wonderful dogs (and many of their swissy friends). Thank you to our breeder and great friends Janelle and Michael Kaiser of Seneca GSMD who have changed our lives for the better.
