Nito Ranch

Buy from a dog breeder in Brandon, SD specializing in Bernese mountain dogs and bernedoodles

We are Tom and Nichole Cauwels and, along with our four children, we own Nito Ranch Pups. It's pronounced Neat - O but just stands for Nichole and Tom. We live on a 70-acre ranch near the Sioux Falls and Brandon, SD area and breed adorable dogs for adoption. 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 eight years ago has turned into a passion.

COVID-19 Policy

Due to infection control and biosecurity we ask that you don't visit the dog park, humane society, pet store or other breeders the same day you come to visit our puppies. We welcome you to bring your entire human family, just not other pets. We also ask that children sit while handling any puppies to prevent any injury or falls to our puppies that can be wiggly.

We allow families with deposits to come in person to choose their puppy between 5-8 weeks of age. If we have any puppies older than 8 weeks then we will allow meet greets with families who are interested in purchasing a puppy but have not yet made a deposit.
