Polish Lowland Sheepdog Information

  " From breeding to training...what you need to know"

 

The pictures to the  right of the text are in memory of the once very active Shaggi PONS Kennel.  These dogs who lived to  be  10-13 years old  have all passed now except for Shadow,the present pet.   the picture on the right is  his puppy picture, but he is now about 7 years old. Memories abound as these were some of the very first of the Polish breed to be shown and bred in the United States. They were often the first seen by anyone in the U.S., at a time when they were still named after their Polish name, which is Polski Owczarek Nizinny.

This website's owner first got into the breed over 29 years ago, and as such was one of the first pioneers in getting to know the earliest of the Polish breeds to be introduced  in the United States.  As one of the founders of the parent club she has been dedicated to promoting the breed while protecting its integrity for many years.  She, along with 7 others, who were also Polish breed  lovers and breeders, organized a club to both provide information to owners everywhere as well as provide a social network for  breeders, handlers, and people who  wanted a pet. 
 
Her dogs as pets, even though she did show and breed, were most important to her and the puppies she bred were meant  to go to good homes where the new owners understood what they were getting.  Good breeding and good homes were foremost in her mind, even though she did enjoy showing her dogs.  
 
She has been an owner, breeder, and handler.  She has bred several litters of  puppies over time.  She finished many champions.  Her Polish sheepdogs were all among the foundation stock when the breed went into AKC where its present registry is kept. She has trained and showed her dogs in obedience as well.

 Today her prime interest is in helping promote and protect the breed which she hopes to do by helping to educate people.  She presently has  only one , Shadow,who is a neutered pet.  While still very active in the breed, personal reasons have limited her ability to show and breed.  Her goal is to help you find the right breeder and the right puppy. Most puppies in the breed go to good "pet" homes where they are loved and adored.  Finding the right home for the right puppy is most important.  Socializing and training your puppy are the keys to a wonderful adult dog. 
                      

If you have other interest such as showing,

agility, obedience, herding, tracking,

barn hunt, etc., information on

where to begin is also provided on this site.  So
