  1. My family lives in Hershey PA. We are interested in possibly purchasing a Swissy Dog. We would like to visit a local trusted Swissy breeder to learn more. Please direct us to a local breeder near Hershey PA.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Jon-
      There are several very good breeders in that area. Please check out our resources page for the breeder’s directory. I know that Seavaridge Swissys, Cabro Swissys, and Kismet Swissys are near the general area.

  2. I have been trying to find the perfect dog breed for my lifestyle and Swissy’s seem to be perfect. I live near DC and am wondering if there is a breeder in the surrounding areas so i can visit with them and learn more. I want to be fully prepared for my swissy’s home coming.

    • Hi Sasha- There several very good Swissy breeders in the DC area. Please see our resources page for the GSMDCA breeder’s directory. Mary Jo Rasmussen of Double Q Swissys is in Falls Church and has litters periodically. She is also our club treasurer and the President of the National Swissy Club.

  3. Hi there! My family and I are interested in adopting an adult Swissy. I have been around the breed and fell in love. I know that some adults are out there that need a loving home and I would like to know if anyone knows of any? I am in PA , thank you ahead of time 🙂

    • Out of curiosity, is this female still available and in Florida? We have a 2 year old swissy and our looking for a companion for her. We were hoping for a male but would consider a female if it was the right fit. We also have a 13 month old daughter so she has to be good with kids like ours is.
