Concorde Ridge Leonbergers (CR Leos) is a permanently registered CKC kennel located on 10 acres in the Niagara peninsula. We are approximately half way between Toronto and Buffalo. We have been breeding dogs for over 30 years and been involved with Leonbergers for 12 of those. We currently live with eight Leos – a wonderful combination of “brains and beauty”. All have attained their Canadian Championships or are actively pursuing it. As well most hold their Canine Good Citizen titles. Our dogs have participated in our community in the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog program as well as the R.E.A.D. (Reading Assistant Therapy Dog) program. CR Leos have been “going to school” for years and have made visits to early childhood classes as well as done in-character appearances as Buck from Call of the Wild to middle school students.

We have imported much of our breeding stock from Germany and Lithuania, as well as from top North American lines. Our Leos are genetically screened before they are bred. Hips, elbows, hearts, eyes, thyroid are all certified. They are also screened for both types of  inherited polyneuropathy. Our dogs are active participants in running our farm – we wanted a breed that could look formidable but be gentle and trustworthy with livestock and invited guests.

We believe that good nutrition compliments good genetics. Our puppy buyers are strongly advised to follow our recommended diet as well as our vaccination schedule. We have a welcome home policy. If for any reason you can not keep your Leo they are always welcome back home. We provide support and information to all our puppy people!

Serious puppy inquiries are welcome. All potential puppy owners must complete a questionnaire and are strongly encouraged to come and meet our Leos in person. Puppies are sold by reservation only and on non-breeding contracts. Waiting lists of approved puppy owners are generated for each litter. For our questionnaire and to view a copy of our contract, which outlines deposits, prices and health guarantees, please contact us. We do not respond to emails solely asking price.
