Welcome to our Homepage!
Under kennelname Groguard we breed Belgian Shepherd Dog Groenendaels. We are located in Belle Ewart, at the shore of Lake Simcoe only 90km from Toronto, Southern Ontario, Canada.
I, Anna, have had Groenendaels at home since I was 9 years old. I got the kennel name “Groguard” in the beginning of year 2000 in Finland and the first litter saw daylight in June 2003 in Sweden. To my mind an ideal groenendael is everything you could ever hope for a good working and family dog; a balanced dog with good nerves and drives. This is why I love this breed, its all in one and you will never want to change the breed after having a good one of these. Joe, my husband, was introduced to this breed through me and got his very first dog by getting married with me in May 2007. He is (Canadian) also the reason for why we live in Canada.
I have always been interested in training my dogs, and have been competing with them in various trials and training them for even more. My first dog I ever competed with was FIN&S CH JK3 TK2 Voo Doo's Gump, he also became the father of my A-litter. "Zorro" was a once in a lifetime dog, With him I competed besides tracking and obedience, Search, SAR, agility, we also trained IPO with him...He was always ready for work and LOVED it! After him came JK3 Bellidis Arlene, and KORAD BH Inova Baton Tiroir. All my dogs have been trained for tracking and obedience cause I have liked them the most and they are so easy to train by yourself.
At the moment we have 2 groenendaels living with us, Inova du Baton Tiroir "Nova" and My Lady Black z Kovarny "Libby". One of Novas puppies Voo Doo's Lana "Lola" is also living at our friends in breeders terms.
In breeding my goal is to breed healthy, well-typed Belgian Shepherds with good working capacities and character. As I like to train my dogs and compete with them in working-dog trials, obedience etc. is why I also value the most a good character and working capasity in Belgians and want to prioritise them in breeding groenendaels.
Our puppies grow up in the mids of the life at our home. They are well socialized and used to different kind of surroundings. They are dewormed 3 times before being ready to leave to their now homes at the age of 7-8 weeks, checked by a vet and ID-marked with microchip. We expect from our puppy buyers to examine the hips, elbows and eyes of the dogs. We also hope that they would be charactertested at the age of 2-3 years if not competed with. More about buying a puppy from us please contact us and ask.
