My involvement with the Cane Corso began in 1999 after meeting a young male Cane Corso owned by a good friend of mine. Less than a year later I purchased my first Cane Corso and have never looked back.Throughout the years I have the pleasure meeting many great people that shared their passion and knowledge of the breed with me.
I have over the years remained involved with various breed clubs. In the past I was a regional VP for the Cane Corso Association of America for 5 years prior to the move into the A.K.C. Currently I have been President of the National Breed Club in Canada, the Cane Corso Club of Canada since 2006.

Amoureuse des chiens depuis ma jeune enfance, je suis maintenant dans l’élevage des Coton de Tuléar depuis quelques années ce qui me permet d’assurer la continuité, la santé et le standard de la race.
J’ai adopté mon premier Coton de Tuléar en 2012, une jolie femelle qui a maintenant 10 ans et qui m’a fait tomber amoureuse de cette belle race. Travaillant dans la Technologie de l’information, les chiens me permettent de revenir aux choses essentielles comme l’amour, le bonheur de vivre le moment présent. Pour toutes ces raisons, il est important pour moi de m’impliquer et donner de mon temps pour aider dans ce domaine.
Dog lover since my early childhood, I have been breeding Coton de Tulear for a few years now. Breeding allows me to ensure the continuity, health and standard of the breed. I adopted my first Coton de Tulear in 2012, a pretty female who is now 10 years old and who made me fall in love with this beautiful breed. Working in Information Technology, dogs give me a sense of what is important in life, like love, happiness of enjoying the present moment. For all these reasons, it is important for me to get involved and give back to the world of dogs.
