We are located approximately 40 minutes southwest of Denver in the foothills. We are not a full time breeder and our dogs are part of our family. We strive to raise healthy Tibetan Mastiffs. I would like to share my experiences with other breeders such located in Colorado, Wisconsin, and California. It is my hope that my experiences as a "newcomer" may avoid you loss of money, time, and stress. I would be happy to share emails to support my experiences and you can question them yourself :). During puppy season some breeders will "discredit" and spread rumors about other breeders. Since many breeders have the same lines in their pedigree, I recommend buying the puppy with the look you like and being comfortable with your breeders requirements and/or restrictions! Having a "CHAMPIONSHIP" doesn't mean the dog is better. Their are many reasons for a dog not being CHAMPIONED out. "MAKING THEIR OWN MAJORS" to become a Champion. Most importantly, talk directly to the breeders and don't listen to "hear say".
PLEASE READ - NEW DEVELOPMENT! ARE YOU PROTECTED AS A DOG OWNER WITH AKC OR IS YOUR DOG BEING PUT AT RISK TO BE STOLEN AS A RESULT OF AKC'S REGISTRATION PROCESS?
IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN PURCHASING A PUPPY: Do they have papers to prove they own both the sire and the dam? Is their name on the papers or someone else's? I would be very leary of buying a puppy without proper documentation proving ownership of both the sire of dam or if there is no contract giving permission by the legal owners of both the sire and dam used in a breeding. There are plenty of puppies that can be bought with proper paperwork and dealing with somebody with incomplete documentation only promotes unscrupulous activity in my best judgement. After all, you have to wonder now that AKC has shown it is willing to register litters without the true owners signature or permission. If somebody has figured out unscrupulous ways to register litters; would you believe anything else they say regarding health, parentage, etc. of said puppies? Personally, I would rather deal with someone with all the proper documentation and permissions and would never consider doing business with any person purchasing puppies from people like this in order to avoid questions down the road. Better safe than sorry!IMPORTANT! KESANG CAMP SILKBOW OF HO IS OWNED BY RON BOMBLISS OF KESANG CAMP. BEFORE PURCHASING ANY PUPPIES SIRED BY "SILKBOW", I RECOMMEND CONTACTING RON BOMBLISS AT www,kesangcamp.com FOR MORE INFORMATION REGARDING ANY ISSUES WITH LITTERS SIRED BY HIM AND INFORMATION ON POSSIBLE FUTURE LEGAL LITIGATION?

NOT YOUR DOG? NO SIGNATURE OF OWNER? NO PROBLEM - Recently, AKC approved a litter without permission of the owner of the sire. Based on what I have learned about this; anybody can get the AKC number of a dog from a variety of places including show programs and the OFA site. With just this information, a person can take the dog to a vet, collect sperm, inseminate their bitch and resgister the litter with the AKC. AKC apparently will not protect the owner of a sire. It does not even require the owner of the sires knowledge or signature to register a litter. It does not even bother to check! The AKC was notified by the owner of the dog that they did not approve and had not signed the forms; but AKC apparently is going ahead with the registration. The owner of the dog did not know that the owner of the bitch was told it should be spayed by the breeders of the bitch's parents. Personally, I would not feel safe as an owner knowing that somebody could take my dog and do this. I am thinking that this will encourage theft. If I was you I would ask the AKC about this and I personally will be registering any future dogs with UKC! For these reasons I believe it is very important to research the person selling puppies.
FULL BROTHER AND SISTER BREEDINGS? NO PROBLEM. YOU GOT THE MONEY AND YOU CAN BREED IT; AKC WILL REGISTER IT! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING OF RESPONSE FROM AKC ABOUT REGISTERING A FULL BROTHER SISTER BREEDING:
QUOTE: Inbreeding - The mating of two closely related dogs of the same breed.
Line breeding - The practice of mating a dog to a member of an earlier generation of the dog's bloodline.
Outcrossing: The mating of two dogs of the same breed that are otherwise virtually unrelated.
The relationship between the sire and dam of the litter has no bearing on registration eligibility. Anyone who considers breeding their dog must consider many different factors. Breeding dogs that are closely related can cause certain characteristics, both desirable and undesirable, to be present in the offspring. There is no rule that prohibits inbreeding and line breeding; this is left to the discretion of individual breeders.

I was at the dog park the other day and somebody commented how the AKC is ruining breeds. After learning about how AKC will basically register anything with or without an owner's signature/permission, with no evidence of testing, and regardless of how inbred a litter is; I can see how this is happening. It should come as no surprise that their membership is declining. I know that as an owner; I do not feel safe regsitering my dogs with AKC as I can see how it might put my dog at risk of being stolen. I also feel showing is so political and most people realize that the best dog does not win in AKC; rather the most well known handler. I have talked with breeders overseas and was surprised to learn how their kennel clubs are far more concerned with the health of the dogs rather than money coming in from registrations. Many require annual testing of breeding stock and approval to breed from their clubs. At least they have standards and are looking for the welfare of the dogs. It seems to me that buying from breeders overseas might just be the safest and best option to take untless you can find an honest, non show breeder here in the U.S. But as I have seen with that, all too many times, some people are out just to make a quick buck off the dogs and will use any type of scam or dog and register a litter. Judging by what I have learned recently about the AKC; I do not believe they are not at all interested in the welfare of the dogs; but rather the amount of money they can generate from registrations and show entries :(
THE TIBETAN MASTIFF'S COAT
The coat of a Tibetan Mastiff lacks the unpleasant "big-dog smell" that affects many large breeds. e coat, whatever its length or color(s), should shed dirt and odors. Although the dogs shed somewhat throughout the year, there is generally one great "molt" in late winter or early spring and sometimes another, lesser molt in the late summer or early fall, making it a good breed for allergy sufferers.
CHOOSING A BREEDER CAN BE FRUSTRATING! MY ADVICE IS TO NEVER RELY SOLELY ON WEBSITES! TALK TO THE BREEDER PERSONALLY AND DON'T LISTEN TO "RUMORS." All our future puppies will be sold as pets (no papers), to GOOD HOMES, NOT SHOW BREEDER HOMES, because of the deceitful business practices, treatment, and hypocritical information in my opinion that I have been given by several breeders and their friends that condone the behavior I have experienced with them while being told that I should just "suck it up". There are plenty of good dogs out there so I refuse to support the bad breeders. It's not the dogs that are bad, it's the people breeding them like puppy mills just to make a living off them. Please feel free to contact me and I can share emails with you regarding their behavior. You could pay more from show breeders for the same lines; buy why?I recommend carefully researching both the sire and dam for structure, temperament, and to be comfortable with your breeder"s requirements and restrictions. Ask to see any test results to be sure your puppy will be more likely not to have hip or elbow problems. Research the breeder you are interested in personally and not on "hear say". I have read articles on other websites that offer advice similar to the following: "Avoid breeders who make it their mission to criticize and bash other breeders' dogs and programs. It is not constructive to listen to a breeder bad-mouth others. I personally think they bear part of the blame for creating homeless TMs by preventing beautiful, healthy, puppies from finding good homes and then blaming the breeder they have "bashed". Reputable and dedicated breeders should be more concerned with the welfare of their own dogs." I think this is great advice! I had a contract with a long time kennel here in Denver on a dog that was bred by his friend and AKC judge in California which was breached for simply for speaking with a breeder they didn't like while using his dogs in their breeding program.. Sometimes this is a license to do things that would be very "hypocritical" or getting too comfortable riding on your reputation :)
