I am married to Ross Beisel, a great guy, (who else would share four Poms and a big farm dog in our bed at night)! Ross is a farmer, had race horses and worked for the Grand River Raceway. Now enjoying retired life working just as hard on the farm.
In 1966, I first started showing and breeding German Shepherd dogs in Winnipeg and Steinbach Manitoba, Ontario. When we moved to Elmira, Ontario many of my Shepherds were sold to the Mount Forest Police Force. One of our girls has the honour of being a Seeing Eye Dog.
I have been a professional Security Guard working and boarding Doberman Pincers and Shepherds for Lowellen Security. I have also enjoyed showing my own Dobermans and Shepherds.
I was employed as an Obedience Instructor for Kitwat Kennels. A lot of my dogs have won their C.D., C.D.X., plus Agility and Tracking titles. Some of our dogs have gone to Senior Day Programs to visit the frail and elderly. They also visit at Retirement Homes. Even Beauty our farm dog has Sheep Herding Training and has won Obedience Classes.
I successfully completed 4 levels of Dogs-A HOBBY OR A PROFESSION. I received my certificates at the School of Canine Science at the University of Guelph in Ontario.
In 1999 when my last Doberman died of heart failure, a friend and Pomeranian breeder Marge Schweitzer of PicA Pal Kennels in her later years decided to move and sell her Pomeranians. Our Vet suggested to Ross that I try with small Breed of Pomeranians. That did it!!! These very intelligent, proud dogs bonded so quickly with me that I have never looked back.
In 2002 we bought 95 acres in Arthur, Ontario and built a wonderful kennel with heated floors and automatic water bowls. All the Poms have large 16 foot runs indoor and outdoor with individual houses in all the runs. They can come inside & go outside at any time of the day or night. Of course Beauty our farm dog shares the lime light with the Pom gang. Our Poms do have our home to enjoy as well. All our puppies are raised in our home .
Owning these beautiful dogs have enabled me to meet some very wonderful people. I became very sad when Marge decided to take a well earned rest from the dog business after 30 years. I however was so excited when she turned over her foundation Poms to me and she continued to advise me on her old but true lines until her death.
I have since acquired ViDoll Kennels Pomeranians which were left to me in Violet Smith's will. With bloodlines and Pomeranians from other respected breeders I now own a number of lovely Pomeranians. With respect, and my wish to honour their trust we breed only Registered, Quality, Healthy, Temperament Plus Pomeranians. All our horses and dogs are on a schedule with the Drayton Veterinary Clinic to ensure the best of care. Please see my Available Puppies and Adults to learn more of the care we give our beloved animals.
I do not have a lot of time to enter the show ring but we do have a number of Champions and continue to get our show hopefuls in the ring each years. We are very delighted to see the success some of our new owners are finding in exhibiting their puppies.
I cannot begin to describe the love and pleasure of owning these devoted small treasures. They are great travelers, love to meet new people and want to be with you always. If you are in need of someone to give you lots of love and attention, I take pride in showing you a bundle of joy that will win your heart and give you delight for many happy days.
