Nova

94lbs – 23.4″

Nova is a very special dog at SwissRidge. I have known dogs in her linage going back 5 generations and over 16 years. Nova’s great grandmother (Nellar) was born at SwissRidge and was out of Daiko, a dog who I imported from Belgium in 2004. He was the most magnificent Bernese and was the gold standard of what every Bernese should act and look like! He was a dog that left an impression and if you met him you would never forget that adorable face and amazing personality! Nellar’s mom Veruschka was imported from Slovakia.  Nova’s great grandfather (Dominque Benoit ) was a French import.
I have been very lucky to have owned some of the most magnificent Bernese over the last 2 decades that are now being mixed into my Bernedoodle lines. Nova’s lines are top quality from some of the best European kennels in the world! All health clearances have been done over 5+ generations back. This pays off because Nova has EXCELLENT hips which is not a common hip score in Bernese! It is very satisfying to know dogs in these lines personally and know that they are solid and healthy dogs!

Nova mostly takes after Nellar and Daiko. I see so many of their qualities shining through in her! Nova is confident, sweet, loving, active and adventurous. She is one of those dogs that is always in a good mood. She is happy to see any person and expresses her love by jumping up and giving a huge hug as she wraps her thick arms around our waist (if you let her). If you tell her “off” she will just bounce up and down almost two feet in the air in front of you trying to contain her excitement!  She loves to run, play, and bounce. She has lots of energy for a Bernese. She loves trail walks and loves to explore the forest on these walks. She is full of adventure and curiosity! On hot summer days her energy level is lower, but in the winter, you see her true character come out. She adores the snow and will roll her body and face in it until she is completely covered head to tail! She is the type of dog that loves everything she has experienced in life and will follow her owner into any situation happily. There is only one thing she doesn’t love and that’s the pool. It’s defiantly her weakness, but she does sit by the edge while she watches us swim. She hasn’t worked up the nerve to go in yet, but we do work every summer getting her use to the water. It is typical for Bernese not to like the water. Nova is very affectionate and isn’t afraid to show her love for her owners. She sits on our feet and leans all her weight into us as we scratch her ears (typical Bernese).

Nova is an amazing mother and takes great care of her puppies and teaches them how to be good dogs. You can see her correct them when need be, and she shows them and guides them how to be kind to one another. They pick up on her confident and kind nature. She tends to produce thick puppies (like herself) with more of a Bernese build.
