PERFORMANCE DOGS

For us, it’s not just about producing show dogs.  Many of our Bouviers have succeeded in other areas besides conformation and have earned titles or participated in the Agility, Obedience, Search and Rescue, Herding, and protection venues.  We are especially proud of these performance dogs and their dedicated owner/handler/trainers:
