We are a mother and daughter team located in Grinnell, Iowa. We are two long time breeders, Robin (daughter) has bred old Style German shepherds for over 30 years, has trained many GSD dogs to their Therapy titles and has been involved as well with Search and Rescue, Kathy (mom) has also been involved with dogs for over 30 years, in her case the Newfoundland dog. Kathy's newfs were well known in the Newfoundland world as the Kaylar Newfoundlands, attaining Best In Shows and many Champion titles. Kathy was a founder of the Iowa Search and Rescue, and a trainer of Search dogs. Kathy also ran a boarding kennel in the past and was a groomer. As we have grown older we now want to concentrate our efforts on breeding smaller dogs that will be good therapy and companion dogs and are WAY easier to keep in a household than the larger breeds!
