About Us

Our names are Richard & Joy and we have loved and shared our lives with this very special breed since 1995. It was love at first sight.

We started with 2 boy's Hector & Horace, which were just pets and boy did we have a lot to learn about this breed, it is like no other. It would be fair to say our first boy had more than his share of health problems.

So this is where my journey started with natural feeding, herbs & Homoeopathy, these have been a very powerful tool which helped and still helps me give my dogs the best care ever.

Then we got our first show girl in 1997 Mini, a little red horse coat, she was 9 month's old when she came to us full of love she stole our hearts.
She was booked in for the show circuit in Ireland, so off we went and what a lovely time we had with our Mini. She won Best of Breed at her first show, so now we were hooked on the whole dog showing bug too.
We travelled the country having fun showing & learning what we could about it all & made some lovely friends too.

So then we started to breed our own Shar Pei, this was a new journey of blood, sweat & yes a few tears.

But we feel we have come a long way only being a small kennel, only ever really breeding to keep a puppy to show, one litter a year if that, so keeping the quality not quantity, (we live for our dogs not off them) striving for good health & temperament.

We have achieved so much from such a small kennel. Our first home breed girl Tianshan Caught Red Handed was Dog World Top Brood Bitch 2008 with her daughter Tianshan Funky Flower Top Brood Bitch 2007, 2008 & 2010. Making us Top Breeders 2007 & 2008

We have also helped other's on the way too, With Tianshan Funky Flower's Litter Mate Tianshan Vanilla Sky for Bull pei. Became a Champion in 2008 for his owners Danny & Wendy Hodgkinson, of Bullpei, he was the first cream Champion.

Then we had our 2nd Champion a daughter from Tianshan Funky Flower's first litter Tianshan Say it with Flowers for Ashowai.She achieved her Junior Warrant Show Certificate of Merit, and went on to win 8 CC's - 7 Rcc's- 4 BOB - 1 BPIS for her owners Mr & Mrs Morris of Ashowai.

Tianshan Funky Flower herself was only shown lightly, but also won 2 CC's only needing 1 more to became a Champion but sadly she had to retire due to a leg injury, but she has more them made up for it with her fabulous progeny as in her 3rd & last litter she gave to us 2 very special puppies indeed. Tianshan Ocean Flower & Tianshan Funky Red Rocco.
