As a new professional dog trainer, I was looking for the perfect puppy to become my demo-dog.  Finding Dakota has been my dream come true.  Not only have I found the perfect puppy (calm, steady, happy, always smiling and a REALLY QUICK STUDENT), but I’ve also found the perfect breeder. Simona does all the things that one wants from a good breeder.  She takes great care in selecting the best parents, from both a conformation and temperament aspect, and is starting a stunning breed line here in the US of the Berger Blanc Suisse.  She has worked at giving her new-born pups the best start in life with the appropriate amounts of love, care, exploration and socialization for their age, and has been professional and open in her contact with us throughout the adoption process.  I couldn’t be happier, and am looking forward to the next decade plus to a wonderful life with my Dakota (Apache Spirit Dances with Wolves).  Thank you Simona!

I’ve been very impressed with Dances with Wolves Ranch, specifically Simona Ridenour and her Berger Blanc Suisse dogs.  I’ve found Simona to possess all of the qualities I look for in a breeder; honesty, integrity, knowledge, enthusiasm, and the patience to educate a client that wants to learn everything about the breed and her specific breeding lines.  Check Simona’s credentials.  She has the academic background and the practical experience to place her, in my opinion, among the very top of breeding professionals. Simona was nice enough to accommodate my schedule for a visit to her ranch to see the dogs, the puppies, and the facilities.  I found her facilities to be immaculate and well organized with beautiful construction and landscaping.  All the animals were happy, energetic, friendly, and healthy.  I was impressed with her health and training philosophies, as well as her “family-approach” to raising her animals. I appreciated Simona’s quick response to questions, and constant updates on the puppies, from conception through her Puppy Academy basic training experience.   She handled all aspects of shipping the puppy across country after training.  I received a happy, very healthy, and confident puppy that quickly assimilated into the family.  I could not be happier with this puppy.  I believe the training he received at Simona’s has provided an exceptional foundation for his tremendous potential. In summary, I would recommend Dances with Wolves Ranch to anyone interested in this breed.    Although this is my first experience with the breed, I’m impressed with everything about this dog.  In over 40 years of owning dogs, I’ve never had a better experience with a breeder and I’m very excited about the future with this breed.

My experience with Dances with Wolves has been awesome. Every aspect has been excellent – starting with the stellar communication even before our puppy, Hugo, was born. To put it briefly, we have the perfect specimen of a Berger Blanc Suisse – our beloved Hugo. The fact that we achieved this ‘perfection’ is no accident. Simona Ridenour is a brilliant breeder and developer of dogs. She has a degree from a prestigious University coupled with a talent with animals that cannot be taught. I bless the day that I met the Ridenour clan – you have the perfect environment plus a super abundance of love.

Bringing a new puppy into the family was a big decision, one which our family did not take lightly.  We researched what felt like hundreds of breeders and when we found Dances with Wolves Ranch we were very impressed with Simona and her beautiful dogs.  Watching our Misha grow and learn each day has been an amazing experience and everyone we meet absolutely loves her.  She is the sweetest, smartest dog, not to mention she’s gorgeous.  Thank you, Simona for raising such beautiful well tempered dogs.

Testimonials-5At 5 months old, Apollo is sweeter, friendlier, and smarter than most human beings!  He already weighs 60 pounds and there have not been any health concerns at all.  My family has always owned large breeds and I grew up around great large breed dogs….but, Apollo is the most intelligent and fast-learning dog I have ever been around and it already feels like we have been best friends for years. He has been extremely easy to train, socialize and bring any where I go.  Not to mention his good looks of course, which cause people to stop whatever it is they are doing to stare and wonder what breed it is.  There have already been many people asking me to have one of his future puppies and I will be sure to connect them with you!                                                Eddy, CA

In regards to purchasing our first puppy, we were very impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of Dances with Wolves Ranch. Throughout the waiting period of getting our puppy, we loved that we could watch him and his siblings grow via the Internet. This provided reassurance that are puppy was growing healthy! We were also able to further establish our relationship with the Dances with Wolves Ranch. Once we received our puppy, we were again delighted to have such a friendly and knowledgeable breeder! We left the ranch knowing we had just been added to a wonderful family! Now having our puppy for a couple weeks, we couldn’t be happier with our choice of breed! Our puppy, Thor, is intelligent, playful, and extremely loving. He has been a joy to train, love and play with! Such a fast learner!! We cannot wait to see how much he will learn and grow over the next few months along with showing his handsome self to the world! We are forever grateful.

My fiance and I researched many breeders before finding Dances with Wolves Ranch. From our first interaction to the day we picked up our little girl, it has been a pleasure to work with Simona. She has been responsive, professional and kind throughout the entire process. Simona’s active Facebook page was (and still is) so much fun for us to follow! I cant tell you how much fun we had watching the puppies grow up before we got to take one home. From their first days to the first time they had solid food – we got to see it all. It was also reassuring to know that the puppies were growing up in such a loving atmosphere around lots of children and different animals. We can’t thank Simona enough for helping raise Tala in her early weeks and Simona’s continued support over e-mail, phone and Facebook. Tala, our baby girl, is a joy and bright light in our home! She is confidant, social and just overall so so happy!! The happiness Tala brings to our “pack” is priceless – we are forever grateful to Simona and Dances with Wolves Ranch.

I’ve had dogs all my life.  A Cocker Spaniel, a Collie, and two Labradors who combined lives stretched over 45 years of companionship.  But this is the first time I’ve ever had a Shepherd.   It won’t be my last. Zorro is only four months old and already he is exhibiting very calm, adult behavior.   He listens extremely well and responds to commands like a pro.  He is also absolutely beautiful.  In fact, he literally stops traffic.   I cannot count how many times we have been taking a walk and either a car will stop, or a jogger, or another dog owner and ask what breed is Zorro and comment that he is the most beautiful dog they have ever seen.   Their praise is usually followed by, “And he’s so well behaved for a puppy!”.   As much as I would like to believe that his manners are a result of my training, I know they are inbred into his genome – and I’m just the lucky recipient. I cannot recommend this breed more and look forward to many, many years with him at my side.

I grew up with German Shepherds and I’ve been a dog lover forever.  From day one, my husband and I fell in love with the White German Shepherd breed.  We’ve had a total of 5.  After putting down our 13 yr. old, Molly last summer, we started to look for a new sister for our 5yr old Cayley.  She was so lonely and depressed, after losing Molly.   I contacted Simona after reading about her White Suisse Shepherd breed.  That was an amazing experience talking with her and learning about this remarkable breed, not to mention her background connecting with this breed in Europe, then bringing it to the US.  We then signed up for one of the females she had available in a new litter! My husband and I drove over to Agua Dulce, California and met up with Simona and her wonderful family, and then….the most magnificent White Suisse shepherds, moms and dads, we had ever seen!  Then there they were, the male and female puppies, now 8 weeks old, wagging their tales.  They all looked like adorable white stuffed animals!  Simona handed us our new little girl, we named Tasha.  It was a love fest immediately!  Even though we hated to take her away from her parents, she was such a love bug for the 6 hours driving back to Phoenix.  She and our 5-yr- old Cayley have been best friends ever since. They constantly play, have love-athons, and run after each other all the time.  Tasha listens and pays close attention to all our sayings and rules.  She is also quite the eater!  Tasha loves people, licks them constantly. We are beyond thrilled to have found this extraordinary White Suisse Shepherd breed.  We are recommending Dances With Wolves to everybody!  Our trainer that we’ve used for several years is likewise very impressed.  It’s been an honor to have connected with Simona.  She is an exceptional breeder, to say the least, and has such a special passion for these dogs!  We are so blessed to have Tasha in our family.

Testimonials-7I just wanted it say that I am happy we went to your ranch that one fateful day to see the pups. Fourteen you had. May I say what a commitment it is to take care of so many pups and dogs. You have a lot on your plate and you love the responsibility! Only someone who loves the things they do, are happy with their life! It shows that you are You are have been helpful and easily accessible to the pet parents, informing us of what is going on with pictures and updates. You make it so we don’t miss a thing. From the moment the mother goes into labor we get to know what is going on. How many pups, what they look like and how they are doing! It was a great experience. The pups are treated with care by not only you but everyone in your family! We share a connection now with our dogs and it’s a great feeling. For anyone contemplating on purchasing a dog, I highly recommend Simona because of all the things I stated. You can have faith that your dog will be healthy, loved and cared for, and for me that each dog has been accustomed to being with children and exposed to so many things before he arrives with you. Its a gigantic head start. I went ahead and opted for the puppy academy which was worth it! Honestly if you have a busy life style it will help you that much more to get used to your new life with your dog.

My experience with Dances With Wolves Ranch, Simona, and her amazing Berger Blanc Suisse dogs has been wonderful from the beginning. Having never owned a dog before, I spent a long time researching breeds to find one that would fit my lifestyle. I learned about the Berger Blanc Suisse breed, and it seemed like a perfect fit – smart, loyal dogs with warm personalities (cat and kid friendly!), and beautiful to boot! I had never encountered a Berger Blanc Suisse in person, and Simona generously invited me to meet her dogs on her lovely ranch. I was very impressed by her knowledge of the breed and obvious love for her pups, as well as the dogs themselves! I was smitten and signed up for a puppy two litters down the line. Simona kept in contact with me during the months while I waited for my pup, and kept me updated about the litter progress. I expressed an interest in a calmer, affectionate female puppy, and thanks to Simona’s great intuition of puppy personalities, my girl, Luna, is by far the sweetest, snuggly-est, most well-mannered puppy I have ever seen! She attended Puppy Academy, and I got to see lots of pictures of her progress. She is totally confident and socialized, loves other dogs of all kinds, gets along with the family cat, and sleeps through the night. She’s an angel (and all my friends with puppies are jealous!). I can’t speak highly enough about the Berger Blanc Suisse breed and Dances With Wolves Ranch. Thank you Simona!

My family and I owned a long-haired shepherd for years. She was beautiful, smart, gentle and obedient! We thought we would never find a dog so special. We searched the internet and finally found Simona’s beauties! However, our question was: Are Simona’s dogs as smart as our Jesse was? With her credentials, we decided to purchase Misty. Misty is not only beautiful, but just as smart, gentle and obedient as we had hoped. We have no regrets whatsoever! As cute as she is now, as a puppy, I can’t wait to see her grow into a beautiful young lady. I can already tell, she will not disappoint. Not only did we receive a special shepherd, but our experience with Simona through the entire process was honest and professional. I highly recommend Simona and her precious packs.

We are impressed by how quickly Ghost is able to pick up commands. By 3.5 months, he already knows his basic commands. Additionally, he has learned to roll over, stay and is working on the command “calm.” When we walk him, people can’t help but to stop us to tell us what a beautiful dog he is. They also marvel at how well behaved he is for his age. Being a first time puppy owner, Simona has been very helpful with training tips and advice to us. Simona is the type of breeder who really cares about her dogs.

Testimonials-1I can’t recommend Simona and Dances with Wolves Ranch enough – we feel like our dog is a gift that’s even better than expected. I have had 25+ years experience with northern breeds and was attracted to the BBS looks (similar to my previous dogs) and temperament (not at all like my willful Samoyed). Never did I imagine just how sweet, smart and loving our dog would be. She is a pleaser, and just a delight every day. Simona was terrific through our entire process, from consideration to pick up and beyond. She’s a great resource for information, kept us informed with weekly pictures from birth to eight weeks, and was both warm and professional. I trust Simona entirely, and am grateful for her attention to “best in breed” practices, all of which culminated in the best dog we’ve ever had.

After months of searching for the perfect pet for our family we decided on Dances with Wolves Ranch. We could not be more pleased with our decision and our puppy. He is an even better dog than we could have hoped. When you look at Simona’s website, it is obvious that her dogs are beautiful. Our dog is absolutely stunning. Wherever we go, people are constantly admiring him. What the website doesn’t show is the intelligence, good nature, and temperament of her dogs. Our puppy was able to learn basic obedience and house training almost as soon as we brought him home. He is always calm, even around young children and other dogs. I think his best trait is his desire to please. He is constantly looking towards us for approval and direction. It makes it easy to train him and to teach him. We are so grateful to Simona for providing us with a wonderful addition to our family.

I just wanted to write a little note to let you know how well Aspen is adjusting to her new home! First off, I absolutely love her. She is a happy, affectionate, confident, curious, and super smart little girl! From all of the reading/research I did before she came, I was expecting this whole transition to be much tougher, but oh man, have I been happily surprised! Everyone remarks that she is the best puppy they have ever met and I wholeheartedly agree!  She’s been sleeping through the night in her crate, accompanied me on many walks throughout the city/nearby parks, and slept at my feet when out to lunch or dinner with friends. She is head over heels in love with my older dog, Luka, (I think she would follow him to the ends of the earth) and he’s been so wonderfully patient with her puppy playfulness. She has had a couple accidents, but I think we’re getting the hang of it and am sure we’ll master it soon! We went to our first puppy agility class yesterday and even though Aspen was the youngest pup in the room and it was her very first time, she caught up to all of her classmates by the end of the hour! She did the table sit, a-frame, tunnel and jump like a champ! The trainer was so impressed and I was just overflowing with pride! I can’t wait to see her progress.  I just wanted to share how well she’s doing and how loved she is in her new home. Thank you for shaping and training such a wonderful dog; we’re going to have a great life together. :)

Thank you so much for sharing your dogs with everyone. I was at the Pet Expo yesterday and was highly impressed by Dances with Wolves Ranch breeder Simona. She was a wealth of knowledge and has a true love for this amazing breed. Best breeder I have ever met…look forward to eventually purchasing a dog from you.

Testimonials-3We selected Dances With Wolves for our puppy and we could not be more satisfied. This was our first puppy in our small family and we needed to depend upon the owner a lot to help us with the right fit for our new addition to our family. We live in Montana, Simona is in California! Simona helped us with all of our questions and took great time and care in picking out a puppy for our daughter that would fit in well with her and our lives in Montana. Our new puppy “TOM” is the most wonderful puppy you can imagine. The dream dog: Affectionate, smart, gentle, fun, super loyal, happy, and even reserved for a puppy when he should be and goofy when its ok too. All at such a young age, not all what I expected out of a puppy. It’s a testament to Simona’s breeding program. These dogs are really dialed in and worth every penny as a new member to your four walls. I cannot recommend this dog breed more nor enlisting the guidance of the owner to assist you with your puppy. We never met Simona face to face, all was done via email and internet. I picked up our dog at the airport in Seattle and we shook hand-paw at 8 weeks. It was love at first sight and he was so well matched for our lives and what we wanted in a puppy. So happy. Thankyou Simona!

We love our 3 month old Berger Blanc Swiss Shepherd puppy, Marco. We are so grateful and appreciative to Simona Ridenour for raising and nurturing this amazing Swiss Shepherd. Marco is everything we hoped he would be. He’s incredibly smart, sweet and funny. He’s gorgeous. He has wonderful manners. He is totally at ease with people and other animals, while having a healthy skepticism with strangers. Marco is surprisingly strong and coordinated for his age (3.5 month). He has mastered stairs after a few test runs, and he gallops across the yard like a small pony. He knows how to catch and retrieve a small rubber ball. He sits quietly when he meets someone new.  And he knows how to cock his head with mock surprise when my husband or I fake bark, or try to sing. Makes us laugh every time.  Simona coached me through the whole process of selecting and bringing Marco into our lives. We are impressed. The Dances With Wolves Ranch is an ideal place to breed and raise Swiss Shepherds. Simona designed the ranch with love, and obvious thorough expertise about the breed.

We both had dogs growing up – Golden Retrievers, Newfoundlands, dwwr-1Great Pyrenees, and were so excited to bring home our first puppy together. We researched and visited some wonderful golden retriever breeders in our area, but came across Simona’s website and fell in love with her dogs. After careful consideration and a visit to California to meet Simona in person, we fell in love with the breed for their temperament and beauty. Noura arrived to us as a happy and healthy puppy. She is well known and loved around our neighborhood for being an loving, outgoing, playful and obedient pup. We love to take her around the city, on weekend trips to suburbs and beach towns in the Northeast. She is fantastic in the car and adapts quickly to new environments. Thank you, Simona for the wonderful addition to our little family – we couldn’t be happier and can’t wait for more adventures with her.

I first reached out to Simona over a year before I would eventually receive one of her puppies. I was considering getting my first dog but had many questions and loose ends to take care of before taking the plunge. Simona was consistently prompt and polite in responding to my plethora of questions and concerns. Her breeding program is certainly among the best and now that my puppy, Luca, has been with me for a few weeks, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed if you chose to join the Dances With Wolves family.As a first time dog owner, I was concerned about my puppy getting the right start to life. I was unsure of my own ability to make the right choices for Luca during the critical socialization period when he would be at his most impressionable stage. As such, I decided to send Luca to Puppy Academy. Puppy Academy is hosted and run by a professional dog trainer, Debbie. Debbie has a close working relationship with Simona and the Dances With Wolves Ranch, but the academy occurs at a separate location (with regular visits for the puppies back to the Dances With Wolves Ranch). It was definitely the right decision and one I would recommend for anyone who wants to ensure a good foundation for their new puppy. Immediately upon receiving Luca, I could tell he was a well-adapted dog with confidence and an understanding of many commands (as well as a great ability to learn new ones!). Finally, I would like to also mention that if you are considering getting a puppy from Simona, which would require long distance travel, do not be concerned. Simona does a great job of ensuring a smooth process and that the airline details are all taken care of for you and your puppy will arrive safe and sound. Overall, I highly recommend Simona to anyone interested in this beautiful breed!

dwwr-2I started researching breeds a year ago and I discovered this magical breed, white Swiss shepherd. After deciding on the breed I discovered DWWR after doing lots of research. I decided I wanted to become a mom to one of her sweet puppies because of their temperament and the show class quality of her dogs. Simona was in touch with me frequently throughout the entire process keeping me updated and sending weekly pictures when the liter was born. She also welcomed me to visit my puppy at her ranch before I picked her up at 12 weeks. Her genuine care and love for her passion is undeniable. I picked up my baby girl at 12 weeks in May and to say she is the most magical pup I’ve ever met is an understatement. I kept her at the ranch to do Puppy Academy training and I am so glad I did! The training was excellent and Elsa was potty broken, understood basic commands and never jumped up on me or any other person. I have now had her home for 5 weeks and my girl Elsa is sweet, smart and very cuddly, just what I was hoping for! I highly recommend Simona and her pups if you’re interested in this breed but also for a life changing experience!

My husband and I both grew up with dogs – collies, border collies, spaniels, etc. Our first family dog was a laborador, Cody. He was wonderful. When he passed away at age 14, we researched breeds exhaustively – anxious to pick the “right” breed for our family and hopeful of finding a dog we adored as much as we had Cody. After six months of reading about dogs, I landed on Berger Blanc Suisse and felt confident this breed was an ideal fit. Simona’s organization, responsiveness, dedication to the breed, and responsibility in breeding was compelling. I was also captivated by the beauty of her dogs. Our newest addition, Kiba, is a constant delight. Our kids, relatives, neighbors, and friends are captivated by her sweet, friendly disposition. She has completed our family and I will be forever grateful to Dances with Wolves for creating such a wonderful companion.

dwwr-3When we decided to get a puppy, we began an epic research project that somehow serendipitously led us to Simona and her Berger Blanc Suisse dogs. Every interaction with Dances with Wolves Ranch was welcoming and assured us that we were not just picking a great breeder, but joining a close-knit community (pack?). We discussed the type of puppy we wanted with Simona; We wanted a cuddler. Sweet and family-oriented. Submissive enough for first time puppy owners to train, but adventurous enough to be our partner-in-crime on weekend adventures. It wasn’t until we went to the DWWR to pick up our new puppy, Yuki, that we knew how well Simona had delivered. Yuki is all that and more. A big factor for us picking DWWR was Simona’s puppy training academy. Both of us work full time, and we wanted to ensure that our puppy would get the best possible start in life, even if we had to work. After completing
her 4-week program, Yuki could do all the basic commands and had a fabulous socialization. It’s worth noting that Simona’s pups not only come with great tempera-ments but they are breathtaking. Yuki gets compliments literally every time we take her out. On the rare occasion that Yuki is standing next to a BBS from another breeder, the hard work that Simona put into crafting the perfect BBS bloodline is immediately obvious. We’re happy to be members of the DWWR pack and the addition of Yuki into our lives has both created a sense of family and brought us joy be-yond words! Thank you, Simona! We love our BBS!

We highly recommend Dances With Wolves Ranch for anyone interested in this wonderful breed.  For many years, my husband and I have been looking for the breed that perfectly fits our lifestyle. Once we found out about the white swiss shepherd and Dances with Wolves Ranch, we could not wait to meet them in real life. Simona has been amazingly helpful in answering all of our questions and being available for visits on a very short notice. Meeting her and her wonderful dogs made this life changing decision of getting our first dog extremely easy. It has now been about a month and a half that we have our little ‘Ghost’and we could not be happier with our decision. Ghost has been extremely sweet, loving, pleasing and smart ever since we met her. This good personality and friendly behavior are clearly the results of the wonderful loving family environment she spent her first 8 weeks, combined with a remarkable family tree.  If you are looking for a sweet, loving dog who is very adaptable, extremely trainable, loves all type of adventures, is very social and loves being part of the family… Don’t search further, the White Swiss Shepherd is the breed for you, and through Simona you will be sure to have the best possible
new addition to the family.
