A Note About Breeding

The Bergamasco is a highly complex animal, both emotionally and physically. There is a great deal to learn about this breed before a person should consider the possibility of breeding. Some of this knowledge can be acquired through ownership of Bergamascos over a period of years with careful observation and attention; other matters include a basic knowledge of the various genetic factors that must be known and considered for successful breeding.

Because most people acquiring a Bergmasco are doing so for the first time, they usually have a great many questions about this wonderful dog and its behavior, particularly over the first few years. And finally, as noted, the coat goes through several changes before reaching it final, mature stage.

For these reasons, it is important for a breeder to be not only knowledgeable, but willing and able to assist new owners over the course of the dog's life with any questions they may have. Thus a Bergamasco breeder is not just a source of a puppy; rather, your breeder should be able to serve as your guide for many years as you come to know and understand this magnificent animal. As a result, this is not an appropriate breed for the occasional or "backyard" breeder.


The Bergamasco Sheepdog Club of America (BSCA) was formed in 1996. It is the only Bergamasco club officially recognized by the American Kennel Club(AKC) and is the official AKC National Breed club.  It’s main goal is the protection and management of the breeding of Bergamascos sheepdogs (through high quality blood lines). The Breeders listed below are the only Bergamasco breeders that BSCA recognizes and approves in accordance with the breed standard and the breeder's code of ethics.

All of the board members listed on this page meet the guidelines set forth by BSCA and are supported by the club in their proficiency of breeding and in depth knowledge of the Bergamasco breed, its characteristics, origins and temperament. They have all signed our breeder’s code of ethics and are active and participate in the club (See Code of Ethics).

The breeding guidelines set by BSCA are set to protect the purchaser in getting a true Bergamasco of quality, as well as protect our dogs in breeding them in a humane way offering an optimum emotional, and physical environment.

While BSCA breeders work with reputable breeding homes, it cannot insure health, quality and origins from other self claimed "breeders" who are not BSCA Approved Breeders. For breeder referrals we encourage prospect owners to check teh list below or the American Kennel Club www.akc.org
