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 breed and show Polish Lowland Sheepdogs as out hobby, it's not a business, the dogs are our family pets. We have loved Briards for many years, and own two, a black girl, Jouet, and her fawn daughter Evee.
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. Our dogs have active lives and lots of freedom to run and play. Polish Lowland Sheepdogs are not for everyone and we are choosy who we allow to live with our dogs.
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. I have judged breed club shows in Poland, Holland, Belgium, France, Czech Republic and am often asked to give breed seminars.
I am always available for help and advice and love nothing more to share my passion for the breed, whether that is by giving seminars, writing articles, mentoring new judges or editing translations from Polish to English. Visitors are very welcome at our home on Gower.
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 do not breed just to sell.
