It is with a heavy heart that I announce that my dogs will no longer be shown in CKC Conformation Shows until such time that the national Bouvier des Flandres Club of Canada changes the standard to allow for dogs with natural tails.
Cosmetic surgery has been banned in some European Countries as early as Jan, 1988. We are talking over two decades of scientific evidence proving that it is unecessary, inhumane and cruel.
I have been on the “Au Natural” ban wagon since 2005. Going against my own convictions and docking tails until it was banned in BC in Oct, 2015.
No more! I am finally taking a stand. And I ask you to do the same. Say No to adopting a puppy from a Bouvier breeder that supports unnecessary cosmetic surgery on their puppies like ear cropping, tail docking and dewclaw removal. Better yet, contact the breed clubs and CKC and make your position known.News
Miss Rosie aka Rosie Rou
DOB: August 13th, 2016
Miss Rosie was my only female from my Dolly x Gus litter of 2016. Thank goodness she made the cut and went out on the road with Larry Clark for a few short months in 2018 to get her championship title in conformation. During her very short show career Miss Rosie racked up 6 Best of Breeds, 4 Group 3s, and a Group 2.
Miss Rosie lives in Port Alberni with her co-owner Jan, who keeps her busy in obedience and scent work and soon she will start carting.Rosie’s Pedigree Females, Ladies, News
Mr. Gus aka Awesome Gus
DOB: February 11th, 2005 – August 27th, 2017
Gus was my foundation stud dog, imported from Holland. He started his show career in April 2006 and completed his championship in style, taking Best of Breed three out of four days and a Group 3 at the Fraser Valley Dog Fanciers Show in October 2006. Also, worth mentioning is Gus’s sister Geske who is the 2006 World Champion Bouvier. Mr. Gus has blessed us with many wonderful puppies with that world famous Vanenblikhoeve temperament. Gerard, I can’t thank you enough!
My Awesome Gus died in his sleep six days after Blaze. Having two of my loyal companions die so close together has truly ripped my heart out. There is not a day that goes by, that I’m not missing them both.Gus’s Pedigree RIP
Mr. Blaze aka Snorten Norton
DOB: April 4th, 2008 – August 21st, 2017
Blaze was pick male from Gus X Tazz 2008 Litter. Blaze finished his CKC Championship in just 2 shows. His claim to fame thus far was beating the Specials and taking Best of Breed at just 7 months of age. His second show he took Best of Breed again for two consecutive days at 9 months of age.
A special thanks to Shannon Sheer for expertly showing Blaze through to his CKC championship. This ones for you Pat!
Blaze in his retirement took over his mom’s job of protecting us all from our wonderful wildlife. Blaze would not let any of us out of his sight when we were out and about. It was quite amazing how he could come up with one location where he could watch us all at the same time. He was a remarkable dog and true to that stoic bouvier temperament that I love so much. Mr. Blaze taught my newest Dutch import the ropes on how to protect us prior to his death. I am forever thankful.
Mr. Blaze’s sudden death hit me like a ton of bricks. He had a fantastic annual check-up in April and died of heart failure just five months later. He did not show any signs of being ill until the last few days. At the time, it just didn’t make any sense. But now, I do wonder if his grain free diet for all those years was the contributing factor?Blaze’s Pedigree RIP
Puppies have landed: November 11th 2018 and will be available for their adopted families mid-January, 2019.

Mr. Jules aka My Pumpkin
DOB: December 23rd, 2016
Mr Jules is my latest Dutch import. He is out of Nicolas Black Mystic Legend and Zilva-Thesan off Soeranda’s Home. Jules has that sweet disposition and bouvier intelligence that I love. Show him how to do something once and he is trained. What a gentle soul.
Unfortunately due to the CKC Bouvier des Flandres Standard, Jules will never see a show ring. Why you ask? The standard calls for a docked tail and Jules came with his tail intact and here in BC, I am unable to dock it. I strongly agree in NO cropping and docking. And, I look forward to the day when it is banned across Canada and the USA.Jule’s Pedigree Gentlemen, Males
Members of B.C.'s College of Veterinarians have voted to ban cosmetic tail docking of dogs, horses and cattle. The college says the more than 91 per cent of members who took part in a recent vote cast ballots against tail docking.
Such wonderful news for our breed. Now we just have to wait until the breed clubs get on board and change the standard for our breed. Starting today all puppies reared by myself will be adopted out OH NATURAL! Hence, if you are looking for a cropped, docked or cropped and docked puppy? You need NOT apply.
Personally, I have been waiting for almost 15 years for this WIN. Patience is a virtue!News
July 2nd, 2002 – December 23rd, 2015
July 2nd, 2002 – December 23rd, 2015
Turbo was bred by Joanne Wollman of Angelbrin kennels in Rockyview, Alberta. Joanne and I co-owned Turbo when he came to live with us when he was seven. Which is where he stayed until he was called home just before Christmas at the ripe old age of 13.5!
Turbo loved to go for car rides and would spend the rest of the day, spread-out in the back seat of the car, you couldn’t get him out once he was in! Well, not until you enticed him with food, his first love! I swear he could bounce 4 feet in the air, when his food dish came out. Mr. Turbo you blessed us with some very wonderful puppies and you are sadly missed.Turbo’s Pedigree RIP
On October 28th, 2015, the College of Veterinarians of BC voted to ban the cosmetic procedure of ear cropping.
Did you know it’s illegal in Europe to do cosmetic surgery on dogs? Here at Breugel our dogs and puppies come first and as such we will not crop ears nor dock tails. Nor will we sell a puppy to anyone wanting to do so.
Please join our plight and say NO to ear cropping.
Do it for the dogs sake!News
Miss Tawny and Tawn Tawn
August 7th, 2002 – September 8th, 2015
Tawny was my very first Bouvier. She was very witty and a little bit of a manipulator. She should have been a retriever as her favourite pastimes were swimming and fetching whatever you would throw for her. I am quite sure she would have swum the Strait of Georgia had I let her. On her first ferry ride, she almost jumped over the railing to go swimming. Luckily I caught her by her collar in mid-air. She was my alpha female that is until Tazz came into our lives. Tazz was Patricia Groome’s (Palay) alpha female. Needless to say, you can only have one alpha in your home and since I promised Pat on her deathbed that I would look after Tazz, Tawny was rehomed and lived the life of Riley with Rob, Pauline & family in Calgary until her trip to the rainbow bridge just shortly after her 13th birthday. We miss you Tawny!Tawny’s Pedigree RIP

May 1st, 2002 – July 31st, 2012
Tazz or should I say Mrs. Tazz came to live with us when her owner Patricia Groome of Palay Perm Reg’d. bequeathed her to me. She was a Canadian champion and produced some very beautiful puppies in terms of temperament, health and beauty. Miss Tazz enjoyed many hours of laying in the shade at the end of a row, watching me garden and protecting me from our on-site bear, our neighborhood cougars, and coyotes. I miss you TazzyTazz’s Pedigree RIP

DOB: July 7th, 2010
Nikita is Marcus’s and Tori’s sister and was the ugly ducking of the litter, or so I thought! Actually, her adopted owners realized that she definitely had it from a temperament and conformation standpoint and as such, we showed Nikita to her championship which again took very little time. In two short months, Nikita racked up 9 Best of Breeds, 2 Best Puppy in Group, a Group 3 and a Group 4.

BuddyBuddy aka Little Man and The Budster
September 2nd, 1993 – March 14th, 2008
Buddy was our little Bichon/Shih Tzu X that brought so much joy to our lives for 14.5 years. He was the little Buddy that could. He should have been a cat as he most definitely had 9 lives. Buddy had more health problems then not, including a near fatal bout of pancreatitis, allergic to everything under the sun, had an enlarged heart, seizures and survived two strokes and had numerous eye problems. Even through all his health problems he was our happy go lucky Buddy. He loved to go for car rides, loved to lie in the sun and enjoyed just hanging out under the coffee table (where the Bouvs would leave him alone). Buddy you’re sadly missed and will always be our little Bud.RIP

Miss Roxy, Roxy Roller and Roxy Rou
July 25th, 2003 – August 26th, 2006
Roxy my 2nd Bouvier, purchased locally was an absolute joy as a puppy, then at 18 months something went horribly wrong and she became a very unpredictable aggressive dog. After working with a master dog trainer for 18 months we had to do the unthinkable and have her euthanized at the age of three. Roxy was diagnosed with idiopathic aggression and considered by our master dog trainer “an accident just waiting to happen”. Unfortunately, that day came and will forever be etched in my mind. This gut-wrenching experience is the primary reason why I became a Bouvier breeder. I promised myself that I would do whatever it took to produce Bouvier puppies with sound temperament. Roxy Rou you will always be in my heart.RIP
Miss Lexi aka Lexi Lou
DOB: May 18th, 2006
Lexus was imported from the Vanenblikhoeve kennel in the Netherlands. She finished her championship in four shows, taking Best Puppy in Group three days in a row and a Group 4. Lexus is by far the smartest dog I’ve ever had the pleasure to own. I am positive she considers all her options before making a decision.
