Ruby and Dayn with Savoie and Turks puppies, December 2013
Being located in Central California has many advantages, we are less than two hours from the ocean, (including Monterrey and Carmel) and less than two hours from snow skiing (China Peak and Yosemite).
The Central Valley has many natural predators including coyote, mountain lion, and large birds of prey. This makes our Turkish Livestock Guardian Dogs called Kangals invaluable. Kangal dogs are a rare and ancient breed, they have been bred for thousands of years to protect flock and family. While we are not a kennel or "breeding facility", we are a family ranch which has discovered benefits of "natural livestock protection" and the joy of sharing our lives with an extraordinary breed of dog. We are also excited about the community of Kangal owners here in the United States and abroad whom we have come to know though our animals. We are excited to be new breeders of Turkish Kangal Dogs in the USA.
Our ranch has been set up to facilitate our many passions.... Kangal Dogs, Babydoll Southdown Sheep, Vintage automobiles, friends, family and fun
