Vienna 75 lbs. – 21″ tall
I kept two pups out of this litter, Veinna and Rosie. This was Kyla’s last litter before retirement. Vienna is a 3rd generation Golden retriever bred at SwissRidge. Kylas parents where Clea, Clea was such an amazing dog. She had an extremely calm nature and was hands down one of the easiest and most obedient dogs ever. You literally never had to train her. She was just good from day one. Kyla (Veinna’s mom) had a similar personality to Clea. Monty is Kyla’s dad, Vienna’s grandfather. I imported him from Spain years ago. His father was the top winning dog in all of Spain in 2004. Monty didn’t fall far from the tree because he won his Canadian Championship title in only a few weeks. I remember all the breeders wanting to use him for stud because of his beauty and how quickly he won his Championship title. He surprised everyone and was a very special dog.
Sir Henry, Vienna’s father was imported from Germany. He has produced some outstanding Golden retriever and Goldendoodle pups. He is currently 11 years old (in 2021) and still going strong! He is healthy, keeps up with all the young dogs and is still producing pups at SwissRidge.
Vienna takes after her moms leaner body style but her fathers personality.
Vienna is an outgoing dog. She is brave, confident, has energy and she loves adventure.
When comparing her to other Golden retrievers in my kennel she is on the more active side. She needs her daily trail walks and she loves to play in the yard with the toys and her friends. Vienna lives for her walks, she runs through the forest and explores. When we are walking to the trails we first put the dogs on a leash as we walk through the parking lot, before they get off leash access. She enjoys holding the leashes in her mouth and will help walk the others. She is very good off-leash and will wonder ahead but comes immediately when called. Once she has had her energy drained she settles quickly but everyone at the kennel knows, and makes sure she gets her daily exercise. Vienna adores all dogs and people. She is the most loving dog. She loves to cuddle with either people or her friends.
She is a gentle dog with a loving and soft nature. She is extremely kind to all the other dogs. She will share her toys, bring the other dogs toys and drop them in front of them to try and get them to play. She also brings us toys and will drop them right by our feet wanting us to throw them so she can retrieve them. She has that typical retriever personality.
Both Veinna and Rosie (her sister) are the 2 dogs in the kennel that love the water the most. They would hang out by the pool all day. They have no fear when it comes to the water. When we throw a ball into the pool, they leap in and retrieve it. They are both naturals and have loved the pool since day one.
Vienna is the type of dog who loves adventure and will follow her owners into any new situation. If you are hiking, swimming, snowshoeing, camping or riding a bike she is the type of dog that will be the first to get up and go. She has no problem keeping up either! She is a fun and happy dog!
All in all Vienna is amazing. She has your typical retriever personality in almost every way although she has more energy then most of my English retrievers. The best words to describe her are fun, happy, fearless, adventurous and energetic.
