Our philosophy

Our dogs are our way of life, and our first love !

Our breeding philosophy entails:

  • Choosing the dogs we wish to breed from, having all the pups born in our own kennels, and selling them ourselves directly to buyers;
  • Making ourselves available to provide help and advice to owners from the moment they choose one of our dogs : both new owners, and more experienced owners who may still have questions to ask us;
  • If necessary, refusing to sell if we have doubts about the potential owner’s ability to look after his dog properly.

We have been breeders now for 14 years, but we both had professional jobs before. What made us give up our (well-paid!) office jobs and take up dog breeding instead? There are so many rewards in the life of a dog breeder.

For example:

  • Finding suitable adults, deciding which dog to breed with wich for the best possible conformation;
  • Supervising the birth of pups, caring for them, helping them to grow strong both physically and mentally;
  • Looking after adult dogs;
  • Working with partners on the "business" side of dog-breeding-from food suppliers to accountants!
  • Meeting and dealing with clients;
  • Attending dog shows and sales.

All the while, we remember that, because we are responsible for bringing our pups into the world, we are responsible for everything that concerns their well-being. We treat our (dogs and pups with the utmost respect, and with gratitude too, for the way of life they have give us.

We sometimes quote Saint-Exupery: “Once you have taught a creature to submit to your will, you are ever after responsible for it”. That is the way we feel about our dogs, and the way we hope our clients feel.

Pedigree Pal magazine published an article about Celliers in February 2000. It noted that:

“Cathy……..brought up in Madagascar, took her very first steps among the little Cotons de Tulear in her parents’ breeding kennels. The first Coton de Tulear ever to arrive in France came from her parents’ kennel. So Cathy’s family were pioneer breeders”

"The Celliers’breeding operation has the solidest of reputations (even thought the Celliers rarely find time themselves to show their dogs). Care of their dogs, and maintaining their quality, come first for them, before everything else."
