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!
37lbs. – 20″ tall
McGregor is handsome and he knows it! He is currently being fostered by one of my employee’s, but is still being used in the breeding program when needed. This is what his foster mom has to say about him “He is full of life, energetic and has quite the rare and unique personality. He can often be found playing with his Golden Retriever friend Zara, where his idea of initiating play is by putting every toy he owns into her mouth so she will play tug of war with him. He also has become quite fond of the cat where they play chase most days (the cat always wins).
He is very cuddly, smart and offers so much love and affection that you simply cannot get enough of his cuddles (because he wouldn’t have it any other way). He loves to learn new tricks and will often do them with no command (to get his treats faster). He also has a paw that has a mind of its own, he offers it up anytime you pass by or uses it to get your attention for some petting.
McGregor loves his walks, enjoys meeting other dogs and he absolutely loves to play. One of his favourite things to do when we enter the door is to find something nearby that he can bring to us (like a toy or a slipper) he is just so kind and thoughtful. He makes us laugh so much……. he has such a fun character.
This pup is one of kind, he captured our hearts the moment we met him and our lives are so much richer with him in it.”
Henry 80 lbs. – 25″ tall
Henry was the first male bernedoodle I brought into my breeding program. He is so affectionate, loyal, loving, and protective. He is my big tri-colored teddy bear!
Anywhere we go, Henry goes with the flow. He’s a great traveler, and has joined us on our long road trip to Florida. He managed to sleep the whole way, and arrived bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to enjoy the dog parks, beaches, and camping. He attracted attention everywhere we went and posed in many photos with complete strangers!
Pearl is one of my retired Bernese mountain dogs, and is completely infatuated with Henry. Henry gets along well with all the other dogs, and will play with any dog that’s up for a romp. He isn’t much of a swimmer like his other furry companions, but he will get his feet wet and splash around a bit.
His coat is exactly what I want to see in a bernedoodle – soft, wavy, and non-shedding. Overall, he has taken the best of both breeds, with the stocky good looks of the Bernese and the intelligence and goofy character of the poodle. In fact, I call him my poster boy for bernedoodles, as he graced the cover with me for my book, Bernedoodles: A Head to Tail Guide. His puppies are turning out to be just as amazing as he is. They are fun, social, and loving pups. I’m very proud of this boy!
We wrote the first book on Bernedoodles
This comprehensive, easy-to-read and entertaining book covers everything you need to know about this amazing hybrid. Since Bernedoodles can vary significantly in size, build, coloring, and even personality, prospective owners need advice from someone who knows the breed inside out. Who better than the breeder who created them?
