About Us

Over 25 years ago our family began breeding Airedales on our country acreage in Pennsylvania.  After the kids left for college we had our 3 females spaded and took a break from breeding.   Our kids were always responsible for all our animals & it was too much work for us to continue at that time on our own.  (If you want your kids to grown into super mature and caring adults we strongly recommend animals in their lives for them to nurture and love while growing up.)

Our family loves and enjoys all kinds of animals.  We’ve had many good loving dogs over the years.  Also horses & their colts, a wonderful sweet gentle big mule, goats, sheep, chickens, parrots and other animals throughout the past 37+ years of being married.  We were foster parents for both children and race horses during some of those years while running a manufacturing company with 200 employees.

Planning for our retirement in our mid fifties we decided we really missed having and loving puppies.  Since puppies don’t stay puppies forever we decided on getting back into breeding. Well actually Michael thought it would be a nice little hobby to keep me busy and out of trouble. We researched well behaved, good loving temperaments, intelligent and non shedding breeds and decided that PWD's were the best breed in the world & exactly what we were looking for.  Because of them we have the best, happiest and most entertaining life on a daily basis imaginable.

We raise healthy, playful, mischievous PWD puppies on a diet of exercise, fun and love, all in the country sunshine.  Our mix of European and American bloodlines strive to reproduce the quality of temperament that the breed originally possessed.  

Now our son Brendan and his pretty wife Oana from Romania have also started to breed PWD puppies on their farm in Butler near Pittsburgh.  They have 4 year old Duke and 6 year old Regan to help with all the puppy chores.  Which has helped to make them more responsible little kids.  No children should grown up without dogs in their lives. 

Karen & Mike

After being married for over 33 years, I took a careful look at my Karen one day and said, "Over Thirty Three years ago we had a small cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 29-year-old girl.

Now ... I have a $800,000.00 home, a $55,000.00 pick up, a nice big bed and a large screen 65" TV, but I'm sleeping with a 60 year-old woman.  It seems to me that you're not holding up your side of things."

Just to show you what a totally reasonable woman Karen is she told me to go out and find a hot 29-year-old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black and white TV.

Aren't older women great? They really know how to solve an old guy's problems.


Brendan and Oana .......  The Ex-wife 

It was a few years after were we were married  and Brendan was in our kitchen assembling some loads for an upcoming hunt. After watching him for a long time I finally said, "Honey, I've been thinking, now that we are married and we have so many things to do around the house, yard and with the kids maybe it's time you quit hunting, shooting and fishing.  And maybe you should sell your guns, boat & airplane. 

  Brendan intermediately got this horrified look on his face.  I asked as sweetly as I could, "Darling, what's wrong?" 

 ”There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife.” 

     "Ex wife!",  I screamed back at him, "I didn't know  you were married before!" 

  "I wasn't ".

About Our Puppies

Our buccaneers are raised free & happy, as healthy puppies should be, in a loving environment on 450 acres. The pack is contained in a 30 acre invisible fence system, with creeks and ponds to play in all day long, everyday. They are members of our family and very well behaved dogs (most of the time), with a “slight” touch of mischief in their loving eyes.

We don't subject our Sea Dogs to “Dog Shows”, so you won’t find our kennel amongst the usual references. They are all show quality, but we just love and enjoy them. We don't do the beauty contests, co-own puppies or keep ‘em in crates*. Instead we provide plenty of physical and mental challenges, combined with lots of love and belly rubs every day. Some days these little black devils will all work together to create more fun and diversion than imaginable. They are extremely intelligent and willing to please because of the way they live and grow up on the farm with all our other big dogs and doggie visitors who teach them important new stuff every day. Ex: It is important to remember where you buried your bone. More important; never let anyone see you bury your bone. You will soon find out why.
