About Freckashpeng

Borzoi & Whippets

Established in 1990

Welcome to the Hounds of Freckashpeng. We are located in Winchester, Ontario (just South of Ottawa). Thank you for visiting our site, we hope you enjoy your time with us and our display of our hounds as they are both remarkable breeds.  Our hounds are first and foremost part of our family and household and show dogs second.

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.  It is 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 occasion, sound, healthy, health tested dogs with great temperament and pedigrees.  Many hours go into researching the best breedings that we can possibly do, to produce sound, healthy, happy, socialized puppies, that reflect their breed standard.  We are always available to answer any questions throughout the lifetime of your hound.  On occasion we work with our peers and select advice from long time respected breeders as needed.  Our goal is to produce hounds that conform to their breed standard as to type, movement and temperament.  We are committed to providing both new and experience borzoi and whippet owners with top quality, healthy, loving loveable additions to their family, whether they are a companion or show dog.

As breeders, we feel that we should not only be part of the clubs membership, but to be active members in the clubs and their respective rescue counterparts. We believe and abide by our clubs constitution, by-laws, code of conduct 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, chase ability , sprinters.  We have fundraised, been field clerks, trophy chairs, and done hospitality at the events. We continue to be on the board of directors for several clubs, assuming positions such as Vice-President, Directors, Secretary, Treasurer and Webmaster,  We continuously promote our breeds and are activists for their welfare.  Being a breeder to us means being an active member of our breed communities and making a worthwhile contribution.

We are members of the following clubs:
Candian Kennel Club (CKC)
Borzoi Club of Ontario (BCO)
Borzoi Canada (BC)
Borzoi Club of  America (BCOA)
National Whippet Club of Canada (NWCC)
