We keep a limited number of dogs – no more than can fit into our car and on our bed at one time – and puppies we keep are ours for life. The reason for this is simple: English Shepherds are not kennel dogs, they bond deeply to their owner and want to be by your side and involved in your daily activities. We do not own dogs so that we can breed them but rather the reverse — we breed litters so that we can continue to own dogs of the type that sold us on the breed.
Working in coordination with other breeders allows us to maintain a family line over multiple generations while ensuring each individual dog leads a rich and rewarding life. See our breeding program page for information on breeders that are part of our network.

Gone But Not Forgotten
Peaslee’s Dover, 1994 – 2009
Dover was our first English Shepherd and the dog that started Shepherd’s Way. You can read my tribute to Dover’s Job as well as check out his page. Dover was A Very Good Dog.
1996 – 2012
Brighton was Dover’s younger sister and the matriarch of our dog pack.
Peaslee’s Penelope Ravenpaw, 2001 – 2016
Raven was from Brighton’s first litter. She was beautiful, kind, and extremely sincere.
HTCH Peaslee’s Honey,
2002 – 2019
Honey was out of Brighton’s second litter. She was sensitive, resilient, biddable; a dog with an enormous heart and incredible loyalty.
HTCH, WTCH Peaslee’s Tupelo, 2009 – 2013
Tupelo was from Honey’s last litter. He overcame many challenges and taught me many things, including the truth of Kipling’s warning, “…brothers and sisters I bid you beware of giving your heart to a dog to tear.”
