Nito Ranch

Your Home for Bernese Mountain Dogs & Bernedoodles

We are Tom and Nichole Cauwels and, along with our 4 children, are the owners of Nito Ranch Pups. It's pronounced Neat - O but just stands for Nichole and Tom.  We live on a 70-acre ranch near Brandon, SD. We also raise cattle and pigs and the kids have been active in 4-H showing chickens and goats. What started out as a hobby 8 years ago has turned into a passion. 

Nito Ranch Pups

Your home for Bernese Mountain Dogs and Bernedoodles

Dogs are said to be a person's best friend, but we consider them family. Nito Ranch Kennels loves helping people find their furry companion. We are a family owned and operated breeder based in Brandon, South Dakota. Our dogs love to roam our 70-acre property, spending time with the cats, chickens and other animals.

Due to Covid we are currently not doing on site visits

We hope to resume on site visits in the future. When they resume we ask that you not come to meet our dogs on the same day you visit other breeders, kennels or pet stores. During this time we are limiting in person visits to 2 people per family picking up their 8 week old puppies and we ask that you wear a mask while at our home.
