My dogs are my family. Sometimes I have puppies, and these puppies are available to homes who have dogs in their hearts also. But mostly I keep and spend time with my dogs for the joy and friendship of the dogs themselves; and the landscapes and peoples their lifelong learning takes me.
Takas Volkodav grew from and exists for a lifelong fascination, love and immersion with the native Shepherd Dogs of Turkey, Central Asia and Caucasus. 'Dog breeder' is not the main purpose of Takas Volkodav, nor is the winning of show awards, or most activities that regular dog breeders aspire to.
True Shepherd Dogs are not show dogs or family pets. By definition the latter negate the duty & character of the former. Yet a show dog can pique interest in the history of nomadic cultures that is the Shepherd Dog; and the family guardian can foster pride in the duty and bravery of its Shepherd Dog forebears and relatives.
Takas Volkodav exists to share the unique qualities of traditional Shepherd Dogs; the stories of their lands and peoples, and to preserve the heritage of Shepherd Dogs working in their native environments. The hope of Takas Volkodav is to engender appreciation and understanding of the Shepherd Dogs of Turkey, Central Asia and Caucasus.
Takas Volkodav puppies are lovingly reared and the utmost care taken, to ensure each puppy is placed in a responsible lifelong home, prepared for the devoted loyalty bestowed by these ancient guardians. Foremost, is to match the temperament and personality of each puppy, with the expectations, requirements and household dog-ownership experience of the new home.
Anatolia and Central Asia dogs are highly intelligent, sentient beings and require lifelong homes who will take the time to learn and understand them. In return they will give you their devoted companionship, and unwavering loyalty and protection.
