We share a wondrous Vancouver Island life with our Zuchon companions. Our dogs (aka the puppy's parents) appreciate our outdoor adventures as much as we do. On the flip side, they are just as happy to lay by our side enjoying a good Netflix n Chill night. They enjoy various activities and interests, including swimming with a natural love of water from a very early age. Our adults are our personal forever cherished companions. Living a life of love, freedom and fulfillment by our side, tagging along everywhere we go as our adored companions!

We are commonly asked if we have a "guardian program." We do not support the guardian-home practice for numerous reasons. Quality control, behaviour, traits, nutrition, prenatal care, postnatal care are just a few reasons. The reasoning behind guardianship programs is primarily is used to produce a high volume of puppies. That is not who we are. We are all about ethics and quality, not quantity! Our passion as responsible, ethical breeding for the advancement of only high-quality Zuchons and ethically producing a limited amount of puppies is also why we do not stud out our males. Another reason would be the plethora of diseases that could be transmitted to our dogs and their puppies that we have kept in perfect health and condition at all times for 2 decades. Such as CHV or Canine Herpes Virus for just one example among many devastating transmitted viruses. Quality control is paramount for the complete and long-term health of the parent dogs and their puppies. Guardianship is known to be a terrifying experience for an expectant mom to endure. From over 35 years of personal experience in breeding, we know that caring for our moms (who we love dearly) is paramount in creating our exceptional puppies. Removing the expectant mom from her support system of the humans she loves, trusts and relies on most during such a monumental sensitive time is proven to be a highly stressful and confusing process, with concerns raised regarding the traumatic behaviour upon the dam's return home as a very different dog. For example, it is commonly known a dog's devotion runs so deep they will pause labour to wait for their people. To be honoured with such a deep gesture of love, trust and loyalty, is an amazing and beautiful responsibility. There is a lot to do to ensure mom's happiness and puppy's continued progress as they emulate everything they can from mom for the next 8 to 9 weeks, even stress. For Mike and I, it's a full-time responsibility and dedication 24/7, 365 days a year, to ensure perfection.
Jumba, our little charmer! You can almost see him smile with the pride of being adored everywhere he goes. He is a playful, happy cheery, outgoing, and super friendly guy. Jum is pure sweetness, love and devotion. He loves to hang out close by and enjoys sitting on our laps for some loving rubs or combing while chilling out. If he's looking for extra affection, he will sit upright like a person and snuggle in the nook of our necks. It's also his go-to party trick that he is quite proud to show off. When it's playtime, though, look out! He likes to turn it up! He is as athletic as they come. He loves walking, hiking, boating, quadding, swimming, gardening, running and bounding with flair and speed. He is always up for all fun and games in an instant. He is our almost human sidekick, always curious about what we are doing and always ready to help. He makes everything the day holds fun and interesting. We haven't returned a toy from the dryer to the toy box in years! See Jumbas hilarious laundry video below. Jumba demonstrates such high intelligence he always impresses us with his ability to understand and follow through with even the most complicated commands, knows hundreds of words, knows his toys by name and retrieves each by request. He is always patient, tolerant and giving to others. Even when his favourite toy gets nabbed before his very eyes, he will look at us as if to say "you see that" and then simply move forward in finding another toy with his tail held high, wagging like crazy at his great fortune in finding an even better toy for our game of toss. He is a marvel of unconditional love and devotion.
Kena has a cheerful, easygoing personality, with a gentle & sweet demeanour that is affectionate and engaging to all. She is an excellent example of our Zuchon sweetness and their ability to sense those in need of her care and attention. Kena enjoys performing and dancing, and her shows are always spectacular. She smiles upon request and is quite a talented singer, creating beautiful notes when prompted. Playtime is always right around the corner here, you never know when something hilarious will occur, and she is always ready to join in. Kena is brilliant, easy to communicate with and enjoys learning and following commands, with the proud cheery attitude our Zuchons are adored for.
She is truly a prime example of Tiny Teddy Bear Zuchon.
Fenix is a devoted, ready to please little cutie. She is intelligent and very social with a flowy grace about her and adored by all those she encounters. Her favourite activities are running free and playing full-throttle to show off her mad speed and "can't catch me" skills. She enjoys fetching, especially near the water, to have a quick swim and incorporate her enjoyment of rolling on the hot sand to dry off. She likes to have her naps belly up in the toybox on top of the stuffed animals. She enjoys our pack walks and new experiences with brave, cheery confidence. She will come running to share her love, affectionately rubbing her head on us until she has our sole attention devices included. Fenix is a lovable dog and a joy to share our life with.
Orcas is a delightful, highly skilled little charmer. She will follow us anywhere with a genuine interest in our activities and tagging along. She is highly observant of her surroundings, taking every opportunity to walk on the edge of rocks, bridges, dock anywhere she can get a better view. She always shows off her friendly social manners on our walks, greeting all and receiving plenty of attention in return. Summertime walks are her favourite. She loves fresh blackberries and will sit at blackberry bushes, waiting for a snack. She has unbeatable speed with mind-blowing swimming and deep-dive retrieval skills. The Orcas Islands inspired her name, and her resemblance in colouring to the Orca whale turned out to be more fitting than we realized at the time. She loves to fetch as much as she loves the water. Being so skilled and focused, she is usually the first to catch and return the ball. She will also be front and center for the ball launcher sessions, intently watching for the ball to come down the launch line. She loves her toys and digging through one of our many toy boxes to find a favourite stuffed animal, ball, or tug-o-war toy with lots of cuddles and hanging out in between. Orcas are pure sweetness and dedication, with the gentle, calm, patient personality towards other animals and people that our Shichons are known for. She spends her retirement, loved to bits, enjoying her favourite activities, in her home with her pals, endlessly entertaining us without ever having the stress and worry of being rehomed. We truly love our dogs. As a permanent part of our family, they have our complete dedication at all times.
