Our Philosophy

We are proud of our successful breeding program which has produced top-winning show dogs, successful livestock guardians, and loving family protectors.  The dogs are our "children". We breed only occasionally.  We take care to breed quality Anatolian Shepherds with outstanding temperaments and outstanding conformation.  Our aim is to maintain the soundness, integrity and working ability of the Anatolian Shepherd Dog which first attracted us to the breed in the early 1970's.
