Agility Fun

Learning and practicing agility equipment with the Pyr Sheps

Male puppies, Ember and Emmett, available to suitably active and educated famlies.

The two male puppies sired by our French import Canadian and American Champion Gabizos du Picourlet and Chaparral's French Tryst (Championship pointed in Canada and the U.S.) are making themselves right at home with us but they eventually we hope the right family will come along for them.  Now almost five months old they are both developing into very, very biddable and eager to please puppies.  Not independent at all, but very affectionate, observant, playful and thoughtful pups they would suit most any family with a general knowledge and understanding of canine behavior.  I am certain they would excel at many performance related sports if one were so inclined, or just an active person who enjoys hiking with an aware companion for company.  Both puppies are the richest red colour that I have ever seen in North America which is truly outstanding when you see them.  Excellent conformation and characters.

Our Westminster Adventure

Since the breed's AKC recognition we've always had a dog qualified and entered at the Westminster Dog Show although I have always remained at home due to weather or expenses.  This year my sister and I finally made the trip down with our male  Ch. Gabizos du Picourlet. 

New York city is busy and noisy.  Neither Gabi or myself really enjoyed the hustle and bustle of city life but we spent the days with good friends and other Pyr Shep fanciers which made the whole experience all very enjoyable. 

Here are a few pictures from our adventure.

SNOW, SNOW and more SNOW........that is all I have to say.
 



Our "EE" Litter of Berger des Pyrenees puppies were born January 22, 2014.

 
 
3 males and one tiny female were born but unfortunately we were sadden by the loss of the tiny female only 24 hrs after birth.  Always hard to say goodbye no matter what the age.
 
The 3 boys are growing like weeds and here is a video of them at two weeks old. 
 
 
 

Now 3 weeks of age this little fellow is admiring the accolades his sire received at the Westminster Dog Show.  I am certain he will be following in his fathers footsteps in the future.  All the puppies are doing well, have excellent conformation and at 3 1/2 weeks of age are having great fun exploring their environment.

For Sale - Chaparral's Clever Cookie

"Cookie" is a gorgeous little brindle female puppy that we are having lots of fun with.  She was born January 22, 2013.   She has a typical Pyrenean character as well as the extreme atheticism that goes with the breed.  I don't think there is anything that she will not try to do.  She loves swimming, frisbee( and naturally retrieves), and is now learning basic agility, as well as working with our sheep.  With training she will excel in the conformation, agility, disc dog, tracking, nose work, trick dog, etc., etc. etc...............  She a beauty!
You can see a few videos of her on You Tube.


UPDATE>> Cookie has a wonderful home with an agility enthusiast in the U.S.  We wish them both the best in her future training.

"DD" Berger des Pyrenees Litter - Two male puppies available

This very cute brindle puppy is going to follow in his mother's footsteps, I have no doubt.  He is perky, full of curiosity, busy, playful and cute as a button!  He is small, as is his mother, and is always thinking of what mischief he can get into.  Very affectionate and loves to cuddle when he isn't searching for the next toy to play with.  His conformation is excellent and will be a natural athelete!
