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

Cornerstone is a fantastic, very reliable breeder. We have had great success with our 12 week old pup. From the day we spoke with Philip to the day we brought Harley home, everything was very professional and you can immediately tell that these dogs mean so much to this breeder family. When we first came to the site, 8 huge BMD’s greeted us, all beautiful and friendly. Harleys sire and dame were friendly and very well maintained.
I would recommend this breeder to anyone that wants a true, AKC pup that has come from a loving breeder family.
If you are considering a Bernese Mt. Dog, you are right where you need to be. Shelby and Phil are amazing to work with and our dog is healthy, adorable, social and well-adjusted! Outstanding communications since before puppy conception. We received regular updates throughout pregnancy, including ultrasound pics, pics of growing mama and happy daddy. Once born, tons of individual and litter pics and videos we will cherish forever. We also received weekly updates on growth and health and recommendations for supplements, diet and more. Our vet was extremely impressed with the vet/health records and said they were top notch. When we picked up our pup @ 8 weeks, we even got to meet her "grandma and father." Like so many others, we are so happy we chose Corner Stone.
Working with Corner Stone Bernese Mountain Dogs to get our puppy has been an amazing experience. Shelby and Phillip do an incredible job with keeping all future puppy parents in the loop with everything that is going on with the dogs. They send tons of photos/videos to show us our pup from the week they were born to the pick up date. Because of this, my fiancé and I were able to fall in love with our puppy before we even had him. We are very thankful for Phillip and Shelby and would definitely work with them in the future if we ever decided to get another Bernese.
I had been researching breeders for over a year before I finally brought my sweet pup home a couple weeks ago. When I came across Corner Stone BMDs, I messaged Shelby immediately to get more information. Ever since our first conversation, I knew that I wanted to get my puppy from Corner Stone. I am so grateful I found them, because now I am blessed with the most beautiful little girl. Shelby and Philip are so wonderful, and very helpful addressing any questions or concerns-trust me I know, I asked way too many questions! When the puppies were first born and throughout their first 8 weeks, Shelby and Philip constantly kept us updated with pictures, videos, weekly weights, vaccinations, and any other important information. It almost felt like I was with my pup during those 8 weeks! I highly recommend Corner Stone BMDs. I am extremely satisfied with their support and guidance throughout the entire process. I don’t think I could speak any more highly of Shelby and Philip, and how wonderful my experience has been.
We highly recommend Corner Stone Bernese Mountain Dogs to anyone considering getting a Berner (in fact, we have recommended them to a few neighbors already! People stop us all the time and ask where we got him!). Our Sammy is such a handsome, smart, and well-mannered boy. He loves all people and dogs and is also great with kids. We looked at several breeders but went with Philip and Shelby because we felt confident in their dedication to health and the great care they place in breeding their dogs. We are so happy we have a Corner Stone pup and can't say enough about the knowledge and love Philip and Shelby have for this breed. They have been incredibly helpful since our first interaction and we know we'll check back in with them when we are ready for another Berner.
