"LES VALLEES ENGISSOISES" KENNEL
In the heart of the famous lorey
Valley, famous for its castles and its goat cheese,
the "Vallees Engissoises" Kennel has been founded in 1989. It
is above all the audacious bet of a whole family that to
want to live his(her,its) passion at all costs by snapping
finger at the family generally, the friends... People had
to adapater in our lifestyle. The friends who stayed are,
unquestionably, those who were dearest to us. Those, who
accepted us, such as we were with our qualities and our
defaults. Others left even if for some it hurt us. We always
privileged our relations) with our animals to those
with the humans, quiet complicated , the most often!!! 20
years later, the composition of the family changed a lot
but the passion is always there. A little of tiredness
to see certain reactions, to meet certain persons
but the passion is still the strongest. Philippe,
Nathalie and Maëva, their last daughter, continue, relentlessly,
to defend THEIR breed, their convictions and to enjoy a
peaceful existence surrounded with their 14 dogs, even
if the majority of our dogs are already very old ...

Our kennel works in connection with our Rescue Association "Rescue Skye" (Association with non lucrative ambitions) who try to help some Skye to find a new house when they lost their house in France or in all the European Territories. It's true that we don't have enough time to spend a lot of time to our Rescue Association but if somewhere a Skye was in danger, we'll try to save it as we promised it to our bitch, Whimzy, the day of her death ... We are working with another Rescue Association A.S.T.E, and we trust them to follow our Rescue Engagement ...
Our kennel success during those last years is due to a strong selection of our pet's families. If one day one of our pups will be obliged to come back in our home, we'll take it back without any qsuestions. We believe that when we breed some dogs we must stay present aduring all their life. we lived two terrible rescue Stories : Tome Pouss' and Tchin Tchin. Those two dogs came back in our home. Tome Pouss found a new house full of love and became a woderfull familly dog, for Tchin Tchin it was a tragedy, he was tooo dangerous to find a new familly and was not able to ba saved ...

Our dogs are known all over the world for their morphologic qualities, their good temperatment, and their beauty ... We exported our dogs in USA, FINLAND, and everywhere we'll have a request and haverepersentated our country during the last Skye Terrier Symposium in September 2006…
This title of selectyionated breeders was really difficult to obtain but we have been helped by the competent autorities that I would never thank enough ... 7 years of formalities, a surprise control of our kennel by a judge, a lot of personal work but I'm sure that our breed needed this kind of rare distinction ...Mu own regret : that my oldest dogs Garance, Jones, Junior and the other real actors of this distinction are not with us anymore, to see it because we mustn't forgot that this distinction is before all grant to exceptional dogs for their exceptional carrer (reproductive and shows) ...
