Breeders of:

  • Pyrenean Sheepdog

Owners of:

  • Bearded Collie

We have owned and shown Bearded Collies for over 35 years, mainly keeping the male line for stud. In the last 7 years or so we have fallen in love with the Berger Des Pyrenees or Pyrenean Sheepdog, the rustic little herding breed from France. We currently own 4 PSD's and actively show them here in the UK as well as on the continent. All our PSD's also herd sheep near our home here in North Yorkshire.

This is Gastibelza (Gasti) who we imported in 2012 from the renowned L'Oustaou De Padel breeding kennel in the Ardeche Region of France. Gasti has made an outstanding start to his show career winning the UK PSD Breed Club's Top Puppy points competition as well as the Our Dog's Joint Top Puppy winner for 2012.

Celeste is a very special girl who is very much "top dog" in our little pack. She is 4 years old and has already had a very successful show career as well as herding where her sound temperament and intelligence really come to the fore. She has just produced our 1st litter, 5 girls, all of which are already showing that combination of "Brains and Beauty" that we look for. Celeste's grandparents on both sides are from the L'Oustaou de Padel Kennel.

This is "Blue" at 12 months old. She is from our 1st litter from Gastibelza and Celeste. She is registered as a grey and has the darkest of eyes and pigment. She has had an outstanding show career so far winning Best Junior and Best Puppy titles at European shows and is the 2013 PSD Club Top Puppy Winner. At Crufts 2014 she was Best Puppy, Best Junior and Reserve Best Bitch

Celeste Herding

One of our favourite photo's of Celeste herding. She is working calmly and with great focus on her little flock. The PSD has a very distinctive traditional working style,using initiative with a degree of independence, very unlike the Border Collie. They have a lot of presence and impact, just what you need when moving stubborn sheep! The PSD will be a willing partner but never your servant.
