about us


We are located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Canada, 

in the beautiful Cowichan Valley. 

Our dogs are raised on a small acreage, surrounded by bush. 

Our family has been involved in raising dogs our entire lives, mostly large breeds. When we happened to come upon the Hovawart breed it changed our lives and our hearts forever!

Our first Hovawart (male) lived to be over 15 years,  he was an excellent guardian for our livestock on our 75-acre farm as well as a wonderful companion to our children.

We believe in this breed so much that we decided to start breeding the Hovawart.

We went to Slovenia, Europe to bring back to North America our 3rd Hovawart with the intention to breed her and increase the population of this rare, loyal and wonderful breed. 

After extensive testing involved we have whelped 2 litters from Dheelis Grofje Celski and from those litters have kept one female from each litter for our breeding stock.


We are members of the Canadian Hovawart Club which is a member of the International Hovawart Club and also the Canadian Kennel Club
