With more than 40 years raising and showing top quality dogs and horses, our lives have truly been enriched through the relationships that we share with our animals and the wonderful people we work with.

We breed and show AKC Whippets and Barbet (French Water Dogs) that are thoughtfully raised on our farm in Southwest Pennsylvania. ​Our puppies are very carefully placed in homes where they will blossom. We breed infrequently, and enjoy the friendships that we make through our puppy families. 

While you may not be looking for a show dog, you know that our dogs are used to traveling, being handled by strange people, easily adapting to new and busy situations, and conforming to the breed standard. These are all qualities that make an ideal pet as well as an outstanding show dog. Our Barbet breeding program is based on breeding sound, beautiful, and healthy dogs who are a joy to live with. Genetic diversity is of great importance, as is developing consistency within our litters. We are serious about having a line of dogs who are competitive at the shows and are super family members.  

In addition to the dogs, our interests include photography, cycling, running, water skiing, our lake house, RVs, boating, and home improvement projects,. We love to stay busy!
