The Dogue de Bordeaux is one of the oldest French breeds. We have lived with and loved these dogs for well over a decade. They are raised in our home and share our farm, our beds, our children’s beds, our couches. They have an innate ability to simply “get” us and our busy lives, and they follow us wherever we go. There will never be another breed for us.
“The Dogue de Bordeaux loves to be stroked. … He will scramble on your lap,
on your shoulders. He will stand up when his master or mistress gets up. He waits at the door
of the bathroom. He will look fondly in your eyes. He sits on your foot and can stay there
for hours. He lies forgotten under the table. In short, he loves you.”
—Raymond Triquet, father of the Dogue de Bordeaux, in The Saga of the Dogue de Bordeaux
We health test our dogues so we can make the best possible breeding decisions. We are members of the Natural Rearing Breeders Association, the Canine Federation of Canada, The Canadian Kennel Club, The International Companion Animal Network and supporting members of the International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants.
The Bordeaux’s expression is classically described as “frank” — and so we are Frankface.
