    Beardog Kennels began in 1987 in Alfred, Ontario, with our foundation dogs coming from Marcarpents Kennels of Cornwall. We have been active in Conformation, Carting, Tracking and Therapy work over the years, and for many years participated in the Ottawa Firefighters Santa Claus Parade with the Ottawa Newfoundland Dog Club. We have been members of the Ottawa Kennel Club, the Ottawa Newfoundland Dog Club, the Canadian Kennel Club and the Newfoundland Dog Club of America and Pat has been a director of both the Newfoundland Dog Club of Canada, and the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Dog Association. Pat has also worked for various clubs as a conformation show Ring Steward.
    Dedicated to preserving true Newfoundland temperament and type, our Newfs have been active in conformation, carting, therapy and of course the whelping box! Our dogs are successful in the show ring, obedience, and draft work, but most especially in the home, where their loving, gentle, placid natures make them the best of loving companions. Here at Beardog, we try to produce the very best puppies for loving homes and families and several of our dogs are documented as having saved their owner's or owner's children's lives.
    In July of 2003, Beardog Newfoundlands relocated to the lovely Bay of Quinte area, just west of Trenton, Ontario. Included in our brand new kennel setup are a heated and air conditioned kennel building, a half-acre fenced play compound filled with mature apple and pear trees where our dog family spends it's days, and a room all their own for puppies and mommies in the house. Due to the exceptionally sweet natures of our dogs, they are all, including our multiple Stud Dogs, able to live in peace and harmony in a group, being separated only at night into pairs. Next on the drawing board is a walk-in, indoor bathing facility.
    Our puppies are born right in the house, and raised underfoot for the best socialization start possible; so important during those early weeks. They are exposed to big dogs, little dogs, cats, children, strangers and lots of noise and activity. When they are ready to go, at some point after 8 weeks, they think people are the greatest thing in the world. By that time they have had their first vaccination and tattoo, administered by our Veterinarian.
    We feed our dogs only the best of food, never outdated or bargain foods which may be rancid; we highly recommend Purina Pro Plan which we have been feeding for many years. We believe that our dogs deserve the best, and are longtime members of the Purina Pro Club with our BISS CH. Beauforts Kablouie at Beardog CGC being one of the presitigious Purina Champions for 2002.
