BISS GCHS Seneca's Knight in Shining Armor CGC HCT. Castle is Shine's stunning son and was bred and whelped here at Domus in November, 2012. From day one Castle has lived his life's motto ... relax, play tug, love your people and roll in the grass when the spirit moves you.  He loves to explore the trails with his family -- four legged and two legged. He is game for almost any new activity -- herding, carting, therapy work or just a new toy works too.   Castle hit the show trail as a Special in January 2016 with our friend and professional handler, Ashley Schaffter. Hoping his star shines as brightly as his mother's has!


Top 20 Winning BISS GCHG Seneca's Collective Soul CGC NDD THD.  Shine is our beauty queen, having finished her show career as the #1 Group Placing GSMD bitch in history, and #2 winning GSMD bitch in history.  Shine is our intuitive and sensitive best friend and our ever ready hiking companion.  Shine lives the phrase "walk quietly"; but, she does not need a big stick ... she is quietly confident, and in charge!  Shine is the mother to two beautiful litters of puppies, including our own Castle.  Having "retired" as a mom and from the show ring, Shine is now my constant companion and together we are an active therapy team in our community.


CH Eclipse Mind on Fire v Domus

Pascal is a Berger Picard or Picardy Shepherd. The Picard is one of the newest breeds added to the American Kennel Club, and is already blazing a trail in the show ring.  We are excited to have this firey, fun little guy in our family.  Pascal hails from a long line of winning Picards in Canada and the US.  He is already winning in the show ring and show GREAT promise in the sheep pen as well!


CH Swiss Run's Magic Your Way v Domus is our newest champion, earned at the young age of 9 months!  Tink is a beautiful Swissy puppy out of CH Swiss Run's I Feel the Need, the Need for Speed RN "Ryder".  Her sire is the all time most winning Swissy "Gus", three time National Specialty winner, multiple Best in Show winner, Derby's Toast with Gusto.  We are excited to have this confident, sassy girl in our pack.  

LYRIC - our Angel

GCH Seneca's Let the Music Do the Talking CGC RA JHD NDD and therapy dog. Lyric was our first Swissy, joining our family as a 9 week old puppy in March, 2009.  She  taught us so much about this fun breed! Over the years Lyric has tried almost all of the typical Swissy performance and working events, as well as achieving great things in conformation. Lyric was our sentinel, mother to all, our constant companion and mostly our ever smiling Swissy! She lost her 5 year battle with chronic renal failure at the young age of 7. This girl changed our lives forever and is forever missed.
