About Nerthus Kennels

In 1972, Barb and Claus Koeppe began raising Saint Bernards and dedicated themselves to producing sound Saints with outstanding beauty and exceptional temperaments. They actively showed in both conformation and obedience, in Canada and the United States. Each breeding carefully planned and each litter lovingly whelped and raised. In 2010, Claus passed away after 40 years in the breed. Claus' and Barb's daughter, Casey, joined the team to help in all aspects of the kennel.
