Our kennel is located in Black Forest, Colorado high on the Palmer Divide 12 miles outside of Colorado Springs which is considered one of the best places to live with animals. We do not have large bugs, Ticks, Fleas, or Snakes our elevation 7,000ft is too high, therefore we don't harbor any diseases that follow with these pests giving our puppies a jump start on a healthy life. We only specialize in AKC registered "Douge De Bordeaux" also referred to as: French Mastiffs. Our entire team is committed to meeting the needs of our dogues. We Do Not Mass produce our dogs, our females are not over bred, our males are not compromised we AI, ETP and DNA our dogs. We have resident Veterinarians on call.
Our 3000 sq. ft. facility houses our dogs with natural climate controlled 12x6 indoor pens with heated floors for winter and because of our great summer temperatures never over 80 degrees a simple ceiling fan does the job. We have natural grass pastures with large pines for shade that are day time play areas for our dogs a perfect place to pair for companionship. We use a custom water pool for exercise so our dogs don't feel the stress of rigorous work out. Our dogs are carefully hand selected and each pair is bred to complement each other’s weaknesses. We breed for consistency and health. Health in this breed is very challenging due to over breeding poor quality dogs, including dogs that look healthy, look well-built but have underlying poor genetics. We understand this process and breed out any flaws. As a result of our diligence, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. We believe in our dogs happiness first which means they get excellent food, their choice since they are picky and will die waiting for something they like. We feed fresh Elk meat in the winter and deer in the springs and summer. Of course they get Co-op special dry kibble to keep their teeth shining.
We are knowledgeable breeders with a wealth of network expert’s throughout the world. Our specialty is we like to meet our new puppy owners if they can't fly to us we fly to them. We stand behind a guarantee that we will not let even one of our dogs go to bad homes!
We have been in business since 1987 breeding quality dogs first Rottweilers until our prize male passed at age 15 then, our American Bulldogs until they got too agressive with our horses and now our Dogue's since 2008 - 2009. We have now dedicated our lives to loving this breed and will use our knowledge from past to keep this breed from being over bred, and mis-bred. We also have a long history with show horses, Dressage, Jumping, warmbloods and in hand Quarter horses, Arabians, and Dressage.

We were affected by the forest fires in Colorado this summer 2013 and lost our faculties. Our home was spared but we lost our barns, our animals were all evacuated and we are all fine and in the process of rebuilding. Here is a picture of our efforts.
