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 clubs in both Victoria and 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.
