Cornerstone Bernese Mountain Dogs
Cornerstone Bernese Mountain Dogs (or Cornerstone Berners for short) is a family-owned breeder of AKC Champion Bernese Mountain Dogs and puppies. We’re based out of Flat Rock, Illinois, though we can ship all over United States.
Our breeding program focuses on producing champion stock with an emphasis on quality, genetic health, personality and beauty. Because of this, we can only keep a few puppies that we think could be AKC champions one day. The rest we work hard to find excellent homes for.
All of our puppies are AKC registered, will be vet-checked and up-to-date on shots/wormer, and come with a one-year guarantee!
If you’re interested in adopting one of our puppies, please explore our website and Contact Us with any questions you might have. We look forward to hearing from you!

What People Are Saying About Cornerstone

I have had the most wonderful experience adopting Fancy from Corner Stone. I made the trip out to Flat Rock last Saturday to bring Fancy back home to the city to become a City Girl. She is just an amazing companion and addition to our family! Working with Shelby the last 10 months while first thinking it was a puppy I wanted to bringing Fancy home last weekend was just an amazing journey. I look forward to many years of loving Fancy and being friends with Shelby Zehr and Philip Zehr. Lots of love from us to you!
I can’t say enough great things about Cornerstone, I have had Berners for the past 15 years. I was looking for a puppy again so I reached out to them and had my best experience by far. Right from our first conversation they were extremely professional yet you felt like you were friends immediately. I ended up getting 2 males they text me videos and pictures of them often as they were not going to be ready for 3 weeks. They shipped them to me in Southern California and the puppies did great! I was super nervous with having them shipped but Philip and Shelby the breeders stayed in touch with me until I had the puppies in my care. It was such a blessing doing business with them. They love their Berners and it shows.
These 2 pups are BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY and their temperament is so so sweet! I can’t wait for the next one
Anthony and I have nothing but praise for Corner Stone! We happened to get Daisy on luck and happenstance, and we sure lucked out. The process of getting her was easy and not stressful at all, and getting pictures of her before owning her were a treat for us! Shelby and Philip were super helpful before, during, and after getting our pooch. They are so quick to respond to any questions we have, even 9 months after the fact! We truly felt we weren't alone in our experience with a puppy from here. From food and vitamin recommendations and check-ins, to being available for you when needed, you get nothing but great service. Best place for a good puppy experience!
Our experience with Cornerstone Berners was exceptional!
Both Phil and Shelby were so accomodating, informative, and helpful with this being our first Bernese Mountain Dog. Our Goose is now 7 months old, and the sweetest girl we could ever ask for. We continue to communicate with Shelby in the event that we have questions related to Berner's that the vet is not particularly knowledgeable about.
We would recommend Cornerstone if you are looking for any amazing companion, from experienced breeders who take great pride in their work. Phil and Shelby are very diligent in their breeding process, and consider all of their litters family, they do not breed for volume, but rather healthy bloodlines and pups.
It was a wonderful experience working with Phillip and Shelby. They are very knowledgeable about the breed and answered every question that I had. It didn't matter what time of the day or night they both were always willing to take time out of their lives to address anything that I needed. Their dogs have such good temperaments. Mom and dad were on sight when I picked my little guy up, which was great to see. Their adult dogs as well as their puppies are healthy, sweet, beautiful dogs that adhere to the bernese standard. It is very easy to see how much they love their animals. It is apparent that they breed for health and its extremely easy to see that Cornerstone takes pride in preserving this majestic breed. Im so. thankful that they picked me to adopt one of their babies. He's one of the best things that's happened in my life. I am thankful and truly blessed to have him every day. If you are looking for a good reputable breeder that breeds and takes pride in the health of their puppies then you are in the right place! No need to look further. I promise you ... you will not be disappointed.
