Our Bernese
SwissRidge Kennels
Breeders of Bernese mountain dogs and Goldendoodles
If you are interested in purchasing a bernese puppy please visit the "pups available" page to see what we have.  If you would like to go ahead with the purchase please fill out the adoption form. This gives me some information about your family and helps me determine if one of my pups would be suitable for your lifestyle.
Listed below are pictures of our female berners. Please contact me if you have questions about a particular dog.
Meet Verushcka. We imported this girl from Slovakia. As you can see from the picture she has very strong bone and is by no means skinny or lanky like alot of the bernese you see today. She has substance and incredible bone. Her personality is very bubblie. At the moment she is being shown and hopefully will achieve her Championship title soon.  Click on the buttons below to see her health clearances.
Her grandfather is JgBs, 2xCACA,CACIB winning  "certificate d Aptitude  au Championnat International de Beaute" in the Federation Cynologique Internationle ( International All-breed Club). What a very impressive 5 generation pedigree. What a delight to own this European import  !!!!!!
This is Dyni she is Daiko's sister and they were imported from Belgium together in 2004. Belgium lines are much healthier and longer lived then the lines coming from the States and Canada. In order to breed bernese in Belgium their hips and elbows need to be tested before a breeder can obtain a pedigree for the dog. As you can see from Dyni's pedigree all her ancestors have been tested and are free of hip dysplasia. Both Dyni and her brother have been tested and they are clear. Her pedigree is also full of Champions! Dyni is on her way to becoming a Canadian Champion.
Dyni is very affectionate and a quick learner. She is laid back and loves to be loved. Please click on the buttons below to see her pedigree and all the health tests that have been done.
Meet Whitney. Verushcka and Whitney came from the same kennel in Slovakia however they are 2 totally different types of dogs.. Whitney is more slight. She isn't massive like Verushcka but still has substantial bone. She is very graceful when she moves and seems to flow through the air. She has a nice straight top line and perfect structure. She has a very laid back personality and loves to just lay around and chill out!. We are so happy with her. Her OFA test score showed  an impressive EXCELLENT HIP JOINT CONFORMATION!!! Which is a superior hip joint conformation as compared with other individuals of same breed and age. She has one of the nicest set of hips our vet and I have seen and we have tested many dogs!! This is amazing for a bernese! See below for all her health clearances! Her father winning the titles of JgBs, 2xCACA,and CACIB in theFederation Cynologique International (International All-breed Club).

Meet Casey! Casey is an Medium sized Bernese with a great temperament. She is more of a one person dog and is very loyal to me as her owner. She gets along great with other dogs and people but she would rather be curled up and relaxing with me then out playing with the other dogs. She is very gentle and never jumps or barks. She is amazing around children and treats them like her own!
