We have bred Specialty and Best in Show winning dogs including National Specialty winners in all three breeds in Canada, the US and other countries where we have placed dogs. In 1968 the Gray's and I brought in three Bouviers' from Madrone Ledge kennels. These were some of the earliest Bouviers in Canada and were prominent in early Canadian pedigrees.
