I have always loved dogs but it wasn't till my teens that my parents brought home an 18 month old German Shepherd(Alsatian)as they were called in those days. He was my best friend but sadly only
until he was seven years old when we lost him due to CDRM now called DM.

When my two sons were young I wanted another dog and after much consideration I opened my life up to a Norweigen Elkhound called Dharma she was the biggest learning curb. She was very stubborn, so you can imagine it was no walk in the park training her. I entered her into obedience competitions where we had lots of fun even though we weren't successful. I realised she was not good at competition but at home she was number one, when child three came along she was brilliant !All that training to retrieve was worth while. She would fetch me anything I needed out of my arm reach.

Years later I was gifted my black shepherd. We trained in obedience once again and what a difference it is when a dog wants to work. He made me proud many times.
When Zeina joined us we had lost our Elkhound so my shepherd was very depressed. Zeina
was so full of character and persistent that he soon came out from his depression. I decided to try clicker training and started
working trials training but unfortunately with heavy family commitments I could not pursue with the working trials so stayed with obedience training at that time.I am very lucky to have some good friends to train with that are experienced working trial competitors so I intend to start working trials training
again soon with a daughter of Zeina.

I will only breed from extensively health tested dogs which are Hip and Elbow scored / graded.DM tested clear PD tested clear and in the case of males Haemophilia 'A' tested clear.
