Welcome to Dobrany Dorianblue Polish Lowland Sheepdogs & Briards
A small, dedicated family show kennel, breeding for type, temperament, soundness and health. These are our priorities.
We have owned Polish Lowland Sheepdogs - PONs - since 1986 and are the longest established, Polish Lowland Sheepdog kennel still actively showing and breeding in the UK.
We have loved Briards for many years, but it is only recently that we took the plunge and welcomed our beautiful black girl, Jouet, to our home. She is a joy.
We have owned and bred numerous PON champions, both home and overseas, including the breed's first UK-bred Polish champion, the breed's first UK-bred International Champion, the breed's youngest male champion and owned and bred Crufts BOB winners.

But showing is not our life, we don't chase up and down the country weekend after weekend, we like to relax with our dogs, enjoy them and take them to the beach or the woods - our dogs are a valued part of our family; our puppies only go to families like ours.
We are determined to maintain good Polish type, fit for function, fit for family life.
Win or lose, our aim is to always breed dogs which we think fit the breed standard and which we love to look at. We are not interested in 'winners' for winning's sake.
We are proud to have owned beautiful dogs from some of Polands top kennels - z Kordegardy, z Gangu Dlugich, z Wielgowa, Banciarnia, Ponadto, Rivendall and Sasquehanna.

I was delighted to be made an honorary life member of the Polish Kennel Club in 2006 and presented with a 'Leadership' award for dedication to the breed. In 2009 I judged the breed club Ch show in Poland and in 2014, I was invited to speak at their club seminar.

We are very fortunate to live on the beautiful Gower pensinsula in South Wales. Families are welcomed at our home to meet our PONs and to discuss the breed.
Our priority is breeding and owning, healthy, happy PONs.
For help and advice on the breed or to arrange a visit, please email Terrie on firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 01792 390586. I hope you enjoy reading about our dogs!
