The Pyrenean Shepherd is truly a hidden treasure in Canada.  They make brilliant, devoted family companions.  Yes, they are little busy bodies but if you've time for a long walk every day they are quite suited to live in any environment.  They desire, above all else, your companionship so they may not be suitable in families where they will be left alone for a full day.   Their origins as a bossy little sheep herding dog dictates that they must have just as bossy an owner.   Built for leaping and bounding, channeling their energy into competition sports such as herding, agility or disc dog trials are extracurricular activities that all the family members can participate in with their Pyrenean Shepherd.  I welcome anyone interested in the breed to come and visit us at our home, see how we raise our puppies and experience the joy and pleasure we get from our P'tit Bergers and P'tit Bassets, as well as all the other animals.

For a puppy or adult to be sold as a "purebred", it must be eligible to be registered with the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC).  This is the law in Canada.  If the breeder claims that the puppies they are selling are purebred then you are legally entitled to a Canadian Kennel Club Registration Certificate at no extra cost.  The sale of purebred dogs is governed by the Federal Animal Pedigree Act (APA).  Selling a puppy without papers automatically makes it a non-purebred dog.  If a certificate of registration is NOT provided by the seller within six months of the date of sale, the buyer can lay a charge against the seller for violation of the Animal Pedigree Act Article 64.  The penalty for violation of the APA can be a fine of up to $50,000.  If your puppy is not registered ask to see the parents Registration Certificate to make sure the owner has the breeding rights for the parents. 
CHOOSE YOUR BREEDER CAREFULLY!

Our retired adult dogs  make excellent companions for a single adult or a couple leading a calmer lifestyle yet still wanting to enjoy the pleasure of owning such a marvelous breed.   Still requiring daily exercise,  the retired individuals do not demand the playful amusements an adolescent puppy seeks out, yet they still enjoy fetching a squeaky toy and learning new skills such as Therapy Dog work or training for Rally, Obedience or Tracking competitions. 

Sometimes a mature youngster also becomes available and they are also well-trained and full of youthful energy which needs to be expended on
long hikes or training for working on a farm or doing performance events such as agility.

All are extremely well-mannered house dogs, house-trained, well socialized, completely obedience trained, accustomed to other pets and livestock and some have basic agility skills or herding training.   They can also make excellent companions while setting a good example with the introduction of a new puppy.

If you are interested in learning more about adopting an older companion email me, Susan, or telephone 905-522-0590
and inquire about their personalities and if they would suit your family.





Occasionally we hear of Pyr Sheps that have come from other countries or breeders, dogs that are lost or found and are in need of assistance or rehoming. You can contact us to inquire if there are any of these dogs available for rehoming. 

If you have a Pyr Shep in need of assistance or a new home please contact us as well and we can help you with this endeavour.
