About Us

Timberwind is located on 12 acres in lovely Pleasant Valley, New York, about two hours north of New York City and just east of Poughkeepsie.

Timberwind - breeding for good health and temperament above all, and to the AKC Belgian Tervuren standard.

I breed only occasionally, every few years or so, and each litter is carefully planned. The goal is producing happy, healthy tervs with confident, outgoing temperaments that make wonderful companions that can hopefully be competitive in the show ring as well as being successful in the various performance arenas such as obedience, agility, tracking, herding, etc. I like to produce Tervs that can "do it all" if their owner so chooses. But first and foremost they must be loving family companions.

Each litter is a huge commitment of my time and energy, every free moment is devoted to giving them the very best start in life that I can. Litters are raised in the home and exposed to everyday life situations to begin the crucial socialization process. Puppies are handled daily and given the appropriate exposures at each age level, including lots of individual attention. They are taken places in the car and exposed to different places and all ages of people. I find raising puppies very rewarding even if it is lots of work - I love each and every one of them and it is certainly hard to let them go!
A Timberwind litter is currently planned for late summer of 2018.  Please contact me if you would like to be on the waiting list or would like more information about this upcoming breeding.
