About The Hounds of Freckashpeng

BORZOI & WHIPPETS


Established in 1990

Welcome to the Hounds of Freckashpeng. Located in Winchester, Ontario.  Thank you for visiting our site, we hope you enjoy our display of our beloved hounds as they are both remarkable breeds.

We have been in borzoi since 1990 and whippets since 2004. Our kennel name was derived from the names of our first two borzoi and cat and pronounced: Frec - Kash - Peng. Our "kennel" is our home, where all the dogs live in the house with us, we do not have any out buildings.

Our breeding philosophy is to selectively breed on occassion, sound, healthy, health tested dogs with great temperament and pedigrees. Many hours go into researching the best breeding we can possibly do, to be able to produce sound, healthy, happy, socialized puppies, that reflect the breed standard. We are always available to answer any questions throughout the lifetime of your hound. Although we have not had mentors per se, we have seeked out advice from other long time respected breeders as needed, as it is always nice and wise to work with your peers whom you value their opinions and not become kennel blind.

As breeders we feel that we should not only be part of the clubs membership, but active members in the clubs and their respective rescue counterparts. We believe and abide by our clubs constitutions, by-laws, code of conducts and code of ethics. Over the years we have actively participated in club activities such as chairing Regional and National Specialty shows, fundraising, lure coursing and recently promoting the new Chase ability program. As such, we have been field clerks, hospitality, trophy chair. Over the years we have been part of the board of directors in various capacities; Vice-President, Directors, Secretary, Webmaster. We continuously promote our breeds and are activists for their welfare. Being a breeder to us means being an active part of our breed communities and making a worthwhile contribution.

We are members of the following clubs:

Canadian Kennel Club (CKC)
Borzoi Canada (BC)
Borzoi Club of Ontario (BCO)
Borzoi Club of America (BCOA)
International Borzoi Council (IBC)

Our dog activities include participating in conformation shows, lure coursing, chase ability, keeping us busy most weekends by attending, preparing for these events and working at various task for each club.  We have been show chairs for Borzoi Canada 2012, 2014, 2016 Regional Specialties, 2013, 2017 National Specialties.
