I breed only occasionally, every few years or so, and each litter is carefully planned. The goal is producing happy, healthy Tervs with confident, outgoing temperaments that make wonderful companions that can hopefully be competitive in the show ring as well as being successful in the various performance arenas such as obedience, agility, tracking, herding, etc. I like to produce tervs that can "do it all" if their owner so chooses. But first and foremost they must be loving family companions.

Each litter is a huge commitment of my time and energy, every free moment is devoted to giving them the very best start in life that I can. Litters are raised in the home and exposed to everyday life situations to begin the crucial socialization process. Puppies are handled daily and given the appropriate exposures at each age level, including lots of individual attention. They are taken places in the car and exposed to different places and all ages of people. I find raising puppies very rewarding even if it is lots of work - I love each and every one of them and it is certainly hard to let them go!

​I am responsible for each and every puppy I breed, for it's ENTIRE lifetime and will take back a dog or help in the placement of any of the dogs I have bred, at any age, if for some reason an owner cannot or chooses not to keep him/her.

I do not ship puppies, but I am willing to place a puppy with a qualified buyer who is willing to fly to New York and fly back with the puppy. Timberwind is located in Pleasant Valley, NY, about 2 hours north of New York City and just east of Poughkeepsie.

All dogs in my breeding program have their health clearances (OFA hips and elbows, CERF eye, Thyroid tested normal) and are seizure free. No dog is bred before it is 2 years of age. I prefer my bitches to be champions and have at least one obedience degree before being bred.

​​Puppies are sold on contract to approved homes only. I have been a member of the American Belgian Tervuren club since 1978 and subscribe to its Code of Ethics. I also belong to the Berkshire Belgian Tervuren Club, the Taconic Hills Kennel Club, Ibizan Hound Club of the United States and the Hudson Valley Tracking Club. I have held numerous offices in the BBTC and am currently on the Board of the ABTC.
