And Today

As a small kennel my personal objective is to breed dogs sound in body, mind and spirit. Striving for constant and never ending

Improvement: Show dogs and pets alike must have a good temperament and be healthy and sound.

My name is Pia Kirke (formerly Rosemarye D'Agostin).  I have been involved with dogs professionally for over Fifty years. I have bred, shown, imported and raised many different breeds of dogs, such as the Löwchen, being the first Importer of the breed into Australia, Also Shih Tzu, Poodles, and Bullmastiffs.  My interest is in health and healing, and I have always had a home filled with dogs. Even as a small child I worked at the local Vet helping with the births and general care. I decided to acquire certification in Bowen Therapy which lead to Bowen treatment for horses (another love of my life) and now Bowen for small animals, which I have kept updating to keep them current. Also now doing Canine manipulative muscle therapies. My love and understanding of animals small and large saw me enter the pet grooming industry at age 18 and soon after that to start showing, breeding and judging dogs. This formed a general concern for their well being, which over the years inspired me to share this information with my clients and many others that have been recommended to come to me. 

I am also a psychic healer, using my intuitive skills to find answers to what is troubling animals. Often they are taking on, (what is going on for their owners) so it is important to work with the owner and their animal.

The Problem Solver Over the 50 years I have been working in the pet industry, I have assisted many of my client's dogs as well as my own through various medical problems with my holistic products. I have learned much as a breeder and groomer and have been able to provide advice to many clients, show exhibits, breeders, friends and acquaintances regarding herbal, Oils, flower, crystal, energy, and natural "hands on" therapies for common (and rare) ailments experienced by their show dogs and breeding stock which are their beloved pets. Working with dogs who have stress problems, I also have an interest in natural products that have scientific backing as to how and why they work, and have been studying natural products for people over the past 18 years, seeing where these can help our Animal friends

Background of the Little Lion Dog

The Lowchen is from the family of Bichons undoubtedly evolved as they travelled from the Mediterranean into Europe. Many feel that the breed was developed in Germany, but France is listed as the official country of development in the late 14th century. Being favourites of the Florentine Nobles the Lowchen catered to the whims of the elite. Ladies at court clipped the hair from the dogs backs and used them as hot water bottles as was the thing to do in those days. The breed has been traditionally clipped this way in a lion trim. In fact, with this clip, waving hair flowing, and his tail carried over the back with a plume, and in all the varieties of colours, he became a favourite of the ladies.

Now after knowing a little more about this loveable Little Lion if you decide this may be the dog for you, if you make contact with the breed club in NSW they will be able to give you information about available puppies. To find out where and when you can meet the breed and to speak to any of the breeders just phone or email me and take time to come and meet the dogs in their own environment or come and see us at some shows or at training to get a better perspective of this delightful breed and its needs and see if they will fit into your family.
