We live on a 35 acre horse farm in the mountains in SW Colorado. Our dogs spend their time outside most of the day enjoying our 300 days of sunshine. At night they join the family in the house. Our dogs are all health tested with results published at www.ofa.org . In addition to attaining conformation titles we also enjoy a variety of performance events with our dogs. They have their Farm Dog Certifications as well as their Herding Instinct Test. We are currently working on Barn Hunt, Scent Work and Herding. We believe that our dogs should be beautiful, enjoy activities for which they were bred and most importantly be a valued part of the family.
In addition to our Berger Picards we have two Giant Schnauzers, Skansens Amazing Day (Maisy) and Ingebar's Gandolfini's Spirit (Tony) and six Danish Warmbloods. We also have the occasional bear, mountain lion, bobcat, deer, elk, coyotes and skunks that appear from time to time.

January 2022 Time flies around here. In October, Roupi and Ohnich showed in Albuquerque and the Durango Kennel Club shows. In Albuquerque, Ohnich decided that she is a ranch dog and didn't feel like showing and Roupi decided that dog shows are a party in her honor. Roupi took Winners Bitch two days and Best of Breeed on day. In Durango, Roupi continued her success by taking Best Opposite Sex two days for two 3 point majors. Ohnee finally perked up and on the last day we got a Group 4 Owner/Handler. Her owner/handler also got some much needed pointers from a professional.
