104lbs. – 29″ tall
Sully is a stunning, Teddy Bear type Bernese Mountain dog who was bred and raised at SwissRidge Kennels.
His father was Odin (an imported dog from Europe) and his mother was Electra. Electra is a beautiful Bernese Mountain dog out of my mother’s lines, and is the fourth generation bred at her kennel. We have been hand-selecting only the best Bernese to breed over the last 20+ years.
Electra’s parents are Jacqueena and Duc. Duc is a stunning dog, imported from an award-winning kennel in France. I had the opportunity to visit the kennel and hand-pick him from the litter. Duc’s lines are health-tested over five generations back, so this kennel is only breeding the best. They also participate in cutting-edge genetic research testing for cancer markers in the breed. This research is so important, and since many of these tests are not available in Canada, we often go overseas when expanding our lines.
Electra’s mother, Jacqueena, is a large, exquisite dog. She was bred at my mother’s kennel, and her parents are Nellar and Dominique. Dominique and Duc are from the same kennel in France. Nellar was also bred at my mother’s kennel – her parents are Veruschka, who was imported from an award-winning kennel in Slovakia, and Daiko, who was imported from Belgium over 20 years ago. For more information on these dogs, you can visit my mother’s website at moorsbernese.com.
All of the dogs that make up these lines have been imported from the best kennels around the world, including kennels in France, Belgium, and Slovakia. I am so confident in these lines that I kept four puppies from one of Jacqueena’s litters – Adelyn, Cordelia, Electra, and Madelyn – and a female from another one of her litters, named Cristal. It’s important to look at the horizontal pedigree as well as the vertical pedigree, which I’m able to do because I see the parental lineage in addition to testing siblings.
Sully is now the 5th generation that I have personally known. We know the lines on his mothers side very well and they have been producing amazing puppies for people around the world for the last 23 years.
Sully has it all looks, personality and health! It was a no brainer to add this amazing boy into our breeding program as soon as he passed all his health testing!
Here is a little more about Sully’s personality from the trainer who raised him!
Sully is one of the cutest and sweetest boys I have ever met, and no doubt the most handsome! He is goofy, loving, silly and very playful. He has a balanced temperament and is extremely social. He loves to meet humans and dogs. He thrives on playful interactions with everyone and anyone that is wanting and willing to socialize with him. If someone isn’t willing, he will certainly do his best to convince them that he is super fun and worth the time! Haha
Sully loves to walk and as soon as he sees the leash in my hand he makes a beeline for the front door, ready to venture out into the world for his next adventure. He has become the neighborhood favorite and is known for his sweet and good nature. He can’t resist wanting to say hi to everyone he sees on our walks. Even strangers are potential new best friends to this goofball.
Despite his excitement for walking and playing, Sully is a very laid-back pup. His favorite pose is to be as flat as possible on the floor, every inch of his body touching the cool tile. He loves winter and enjoys frolicking in fresh powder. The cold doesn’t bother him as he has a coat as thick as a Woolly Mammoth.
Despite being a big boy, Sully knows when to be gentle. He is very good at adapting his energy to the dogs/people around him. Some of his best friends have been puppies that are 1/10th of his size. His energy is wonderful, so it isn’t surprising that pups and dogs love to hang out with him and crawl all over him like he is Mount Everest.
Sully is extremely affectionate and when he relaxes, he enjoys being close to anyone he can (sometimes he likes to get a little to close, lol). He often lays by our feet if we are sitting down or hanging out closely where ever he finds people to hang with! When he wants some affection, he comes over, sits in front of us and nudges us with his nose for attention. As soon as he senses that he’ll be receiving some love, he turns around to back in, ready to receive.
Sully has been a wonderful presence and energy in my home. I love him so much and I am thrilled that he will be sharing his awesomeness with the SwissRidge community!
7 lbs. – 11″ tall
Nemo is the most adorable little guy who you just want to wrap up, stick in your purse and bring everywhere you go. He is so small that he could fit in most purses! His endearing appearance is matched only by his charming personality, making him irresistible to everyone who meets him. With a heart as sweet as his name suggests, Nemo brings smiles to the faces of everyone fortunate enough to cross his path.
One of Nemo’s best traits is his perfect blend of love and cheekiness. He has mastered the art of capturing hearts with his playful antics and affectionate demeanor. Whether he’s charming you with those soulful puppy eyes or engaging in a mischievous game, Nemo has a way of making every moment special.
Nemo loves to cuddle. He will cuddle with anyone that happens to be close to him, his owner, a stranger or even a new child that he has never met. He adores all people big and small but gravitates towards children. I think because they are more his size and also match his personality which is fun, energetic and playful.
He is a very intuitive little guy, and not only does he love to cuddle but he seems to know who is in most need of cuddles. If it is someone who may feel sad or ill, he is the type of dog that will lay by your side until you feel better.
Beyond his cozy cuddles, Nemo is a spirted pup who loves to play. He is always ready for the next adventure. He may only be 7lbs, but he has no issues keeping up with the big boys and can run laps around them. He leaps into the air like a kangaroo and can easily spring up 5’ to catch a ball that I hold up to eye level. He goes on off leash trail walks and doesn’t seem to get tired or need to be carried. His little legs can keep up with the big dogs with no issues.
Nemo’s magnetic personality makes him the center of attention wherever he goes, everyone that works at the kennel adores him as he is so easy to love on and he melts into your arms when you carry him around. Nemo adores children. His best friends are children who he plays with frequently and he keeps entertained for hours on end. He is a very patient dog and loves to be pampered, pet and played with by them.
All around Nemo has an amazing and charming personality. He has the type of personality that most families would long for in a family companion. I’m looking forward to sharing his off-spring with families around the globe!
Benny 25 lbs. – 15″ tall
Benny is the most charming SwissRidge Doodle! He is sweet, loving, affectionate, loyal, quirky and oh so loveable.
He forever radiates happiness and pure joy. He is delighted for everything, and I mean EVERYTHING in life – waking up in the morning, getting a hug, giving a hug, receiving a treat, belly rubs or going for a walk – Benny is thrilled with it all!
Even his walk oozes happiness! He prances so cheerfully and elegantly, as if he is walking on air. It’s not a surprise that he turns heads on our walks. He has become a fan favourite in my neighborhood.
Benny will do anything that I ask of him, no treat involved! He simply wants to please and interact – relationships are of the utmost importance to him. I so love this about him! This is why he has stolen a piece of my heart.
Benny also entertains. He went through a phase where he was creating music with his voice and a squeaky chicken. He would do this in his crate while relaxing. He would squeeze the chicken to make it squeak several times, then pause so that he could vocalize the most adorable little howls I had ever heard. He would go back and forth between the chicken and the howls several times, and once he appeared to be satisfied with his musical session, he would stop and proceed with enjoying his dental stick that he had set aside prior to his creative session.
Benny has been an incredibly sweet addition to my household for a wonderful year. He has loved and entertained me from the first moment I brought him home. I may be a bit biased here, but I think that he is the perfect Swissridge stud – gorgeous, smart, bubbly, delightful, friendly and loyal! All qualities that I know will be much appreciated by the Swissridge community.
Mochi 13lbs. – 11.5″ tall
Mochi is a toy poodle who was imported from Europe at 16 weeks of age.
He came from a world-famous show kennel and his pedigree is full of champions including both parents. His mother “Elegant Beauty” (picture seen above) earned many titles including; CH RUS, JCH RUS, 2 x CH RKF, CH Eurasia and his father “Rambutan” (picture seen above) is also a champion and earned the titles; CH RUS, JCH RUS, 2 x CH RKF, CH Eurasia.
His lines are nothing short of amazing and when it comes to confirmations they are everything we look for in toy poodles. He has also passed all the vigorous health testing I put all my dogs through before they enter our breeding program, which shows he is not only stunning but also very healthy. This boy has it all!
He doesn’t fall short when it comes to personality either.
Mochi is the definition of a love bug. He would love nothing more than being carried around and loved on all day. When given the chance he likes to curl up and sleep in your lap. Although he would likely thrive in any home environment, he would be the perfect fit for an older couple who is home all day and has the time to sit and snuggle with him on the couch. Mochi has a calm, loving and docile personality. This paired with his love for snuggles would make him a great candidate as a therapy dog. He is more than happy to sit and receive love for hours on end, this along with the fact he is adorably cute makes him a dream dog! Mochi is so sweet, when holding him he will put his head sideways into your neck almost like he is giving you a hug. He just loves to be close and feel the warmth of a human on his fur. He is very trusting of his people and will always show you that with kisses and affection. Since arriving at the kennel Mochi and Hammy have formed a very strong relationship. They actually came from the same breeder in Europe, and it seems like somehow they know this. Mochi and Hammy have a big brother little brother relationship. Mochi is calmer/reserved and submits to any dog, he doesn’t really stick up for himself. He looks up to Hammy like a big brother and relies on his confidence to get him through certain situations. Mochi always lets Hammy take the lead and will happily follow behind. In the kennel, Mochi lives with Hammy and Bodhi. He can usually be found snuggled up on top of Bodhi. He adores all dogs as much as he loves people.
All in all Mochi is a very sweet boy with a heart that’s bursting with love. He is calm and very easy to be around. I’m excited to share his wonderful personality with families around the globe!
Hammy 8.5lbs. – 12″ tall
Hammy is a stunning toy poodle who was imported from Europe. He was bred by one of the most impressive Toy Poodle breeders! I have a few dogs from this breeder, and I have been nothing but impressed with the quality of her dogs and the quality of pups that they produce!
Hammy’s lines are full of Champions on both his mother and father’s side. His father is JCH Russia, CH Russia, RKF, Eurasia, Champion of the breed “Golden Collar” 2016, 2017,2019. Pictures of his father are attached in the slider so you can get a sense of the lines he comes from and how well bred he is.
Not only is Hammy a well bred and stunning poodle, but he is also healthy, has passed all his health clearances (see attached) and he has the most amazing temperament.
He is not your typical Toy Poodle which is usually described as hyper and yappy. Hammy is the opposite. He is quiet, sweet, affectionate, cuddly, calm and loves to snuggle up in our laps for lots of love.
Hammy has the sweetest personality you will ever meet. He is amazing with all the other kennel dogs and adores all people. He has a sensitive side and will always submit to all the other dogs. He doesn’t like any sort of confrontation. He will gently give up his toys to both dogs and humans and is always the last dog to eat in his group. He is very patient. He loves to give kisses both to humans and all his dog friends. He is the type of dog that wants to be everyone’s friend. He loves belly rubs and loves to go for off leash walks. He does play around with the other dogs but would much prefer to snuggle with his humans. He doesn’t love the snow or to get his feet dirty. He loves to stay clean; he loves his baths and soaks up every ounce of attention from the groomer during his 4-week trims! Cuddle time and groom time are his favorite.
In general, Hammy has an extremely sweet personality. He has a very balanced temperament. He is everything I love to see in my breeding dogs. I’m excited to share his personality traits with owners of his pups!
Huxley 100lbs. – 27″ tall
Huxley lived with one of our imprint trainers for the first year of his life and this is what she has to say about his personality!
Huxley is a strikingly good-looking, very smart and silly boy! He is stubborn but oh so incredibly sweet and loyal, basically a huge Velcro strip stuck to my Lulu tights on most days. In the home he is laid back, bordering on lazy, preferring to mostly lounge closet by, but also willing to partake in a leisurely walk anytime the leash is in my hand – emphasis on leisurely!!! He definitely has FOMO which trumps the lazy gene hahaha!
Huxley loves attention, especially when the attention giver is willing to rub and scratch. He is VERY affectionate, cuddly and loves to be hugged. He also firmly believes that he is a lap dog, and is happy to demonstrate that belief whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Huxley also prioritizes food. Any food is good food to Huxley. And, the more of it, the better.
He will do absolutely anything I ask of him, especially when there is a delicious treat involved. He has his priorities in order, that one.
Huxley is also incredibly brainy and observant. As soon as he grew enough to be able to reach the fridge water dispenser with his paw, he began using it for a convenient refreshment anytime he was in the mood. I guess he didn’t feel the water served in his bowl was refreshing enough!
Huxley has been entertaining me with his goofy and sweet personality and temperament from the first day I brought him home. I adore him so much and I am so excited that he will be able to share his gorgeous looks, incredible temperament, and hilarious personality with the Swissridge community!
Lambo 96lbs. – 24″ tall
Lambo is a sweet, gentle and stunning Bernese Mountain dog! We actually changed his name a few times after he arrived. It was hard to find the perfect name for him. I wanted someone unique and luxurious just like I knew he would grow up to be. Finally after about 3 weeks of going back and forth between names we settled on Lamborghini AKA Lambo for short!
Lamborghini produces some of the finest and more luxurious cars and so far Lambo hasn’t fallen short. He has produced some stunning litters of puppies.
When first arriving to SwissRidge after his time spent in training, Lambo was the most chill, laid back 8 month old puppy, to the point that we where worried that he may have not been feeling well. But to this day that is just Lambo. Lambo is a very relaxed and chill guy. He loves to go out in the yard and play with his buddies – especially chasing Ford around the yard. Lambo and Huxley are best buds and are always so excited when they are reunite to go out to play. They often start wrestling in the hallway before we even get them outside. Lambo loves to be outdoors, whether this is going for pack walks with his friends or laying in the yard under the trees but is equally as happy to come inside and have a nap. This guy loves to sleep. We often see him on his bed in all sorts of sleeping positions. Lambo is a big and beautiful boy. Alike most Bernese mountain dogs, Lambo sometimes forgets truly how big he is and stands on your toes, sits on your feet or jumps up to give you a big bear bug. He loves to be loved but he also has an independent side. He loves to be with people but is not constantly seeking out attention which I find to be a great attribute to help combat the separation anxiety trait that some dogs can have. If I had to pick some words that sum up Lambo’s personality “gentle giant” is the first thing that comes to mind.
Watch the video below to get a little more insight into his amazing personality!
41lbs. – 19.5″tall
Bodhi was bred and raised by us! He is an Australian Bernedoodle out of Ellie and Jackson, grandson to Pandora and Crumpet. Bodhi’s grandmother, Pandora was bred at our kennel and so was Bodhi’s great grandmother (Nellar). We also owned his great great Grandparents Verushcka and Daiko. Daiko was the 2nd male Bernese I owned, who I imported from Belgium. I’m personally familiar with Bodhi’s lines 5 generations back on his mothers side. Bohdi’s grandfather Crumpet has proven himself in producing amazing, fun, confident, playful and healthy pups at our kennel since 2015. He has sired many pups that I have kept back for my breeding program. Jackson, Bodhi’s father, produces some of the most show stopping puppies coming out of our kennel!
Bodhi has it all mainly because I have known these lines so well over the last 20+ years. He is a mixture of some of my finest and favorite dogs over the last 20 years. I know the longevity, look and temperament that these lines produce. I have personally health tested every one of these dogs going back 5 generations making sure that each one passes the highest quality standards that SwissRidge sets!
Bodhi has the body type of his mother and grandmother, short but thick and the personality of his father Jackson. Bodhi is like a copy and paste of Jackson where personality is concerned. Bodhi is an active, confident, happy and fun dog. Although higher on the energy scale, Bodhi is a dog who is happy to go out and exercise and then come in and relax. Bodhi loves playing fetch with a ball and going for pack walks. He has a very adaptable personality and will adjust to whatever his owners are doing. We are excited to introduce him to swimming this summer as he is the kind of guy that will give anything a try. Bodhi gets along with every dog, big or small, even intact males. This also follows true for people, he gets along with everyone he meets and gets so excited to see his human friends that he tap dances until he gets a snuggle or a hug. If Bodhi were a human, he would be a good candidate for a rugby player, he sometimes is like a bull in a China shop and loves to get a little dirty once in a while… usually after a fresh groom. In the kennel Bodhi lives with Mochi and Hammy. Although about five times their size, he loves to snuggle with them, usually allowing them to snuggle into him or on top of him, almost like he thinks he is the same size as them.
I’m excited to see what the future holds for this guy in our breeding program and keep these lines going strong after 5 generations and 20+ years!
