My first Belgian Sheepdog arrived more than twenty years ago, a rehome named Marcus. Three others have graced my life – Avatar Amethyst Aviv (Avi) and the current residents Magic’s Light of Vega (Vega) and Claredelune Shemesh (Shemi). I also share my home with two Laekenois – Tater and Beanie.

Over the years we have dabbled in obedience, agility, Schutzhund and conformation. My dogs all love agility, as do I, so that is where most of our training is spent but we also train and compete in obedience.

In addition to doggy sports in 2014 I bred my first litter of Belgian Sheepdogs. Vega was bred to Claire Trethewey’s Paradise Bravo Clairedelune (Bravo); the litter of four girls arrived November 17. Pictures of these girls can be found under the Puppies tab.

I am so proud of the puppies and their owners. Kyra earned her PT, Lucia earned a TD, Raisin earned her CH and is learning obedience with the goal of becoming a therapy dog and Shemi is training in agility and herding.
