SwissRidge Kennels
Breeders of  Bernese mountain dogs and Goldendoodles
Our Boy's
Right now we have 3 main Studs and one on the way, Daiko (from Belgium who is a Canadian Champion), Yswen (from Solvakia), and Aristoteles (from Solvakia)!!!!!! They are all stunning, enormous berners with large heads, substantial bone and the friendliest, people loving personalities ever. They are what berners are suppose to look like, none of this weak, small boned lanky stuff with aggressive/shy personalities. No breeder should be breeding a berner like this. We only breed the best and our males are some of the best out there!
These boys both love to just relax and snuggle up with us and always love being in human company! They are amazing with all our family members!
Meet Daiko. I imported him and his sister from Belgium back in July 2004.  He has passed all his health clearances and already produced many amazing pups !
All his ancestors have been checked for hip and elbow many  generations back. All his ancestors are rated "A or B". This is an excellent or good rating in OFA terms! All the ancestors elbows have been rated as normal!
Daiko is also a Canadian champion! He became a champion in 3 weekends! The first weekend he won best of breed. The 2nd weekend he also won best of breed and the third weekend he won best of breed, best puppy in group and he 4th in the adult working group. He became a champion before his 1st B-day!
As for temperament you have to meet him to actually know what I'm talking about he is the most amazing dog! His temperament, attitude and affection towards all humans is unbelievable.  He is so smart and excels in his obedience class. He  is big but has the kindest heart and is just a lovable bear. He is always looking to please us . I can't even describe in words how much I love this dog and how great he is!!!
Let me first introduce you to Yswen. In the picture he was only 11 months and weighed 120lbs already!!!
He was imported from Slovakia from a highly recommended kennel! He just passed his OFA prelimbs for hips and elbows! His hips where rated EXCELLENT JOINT CONFIRMATION !!! 
It is very rare you find a Berner with hips this good. We own 2 berners with Excellent hips! Yswen and Whitney!
Yswen is an absolutely amazing, strong boned, muscular, heavy built bernese. He has very nice dark markings and very wonderful temperament.!!!! Yswens 5-generation pedigree is very impressive with ancestors free of elbow and hip dsyplasia. His ancestors also having CAC titles and CACIB titles. Meaning "certificat d 'Appitude au champion and International de Beaute". In short  Yswen is a gorgeous bernese strong and agile, sturdily built limbs, harmonious and well balanced. His temperament is self-confident and good natured. EVERTHING YOU WOULD WANT IN A BERNESE!! Just look at his pictures! WOW!!!
