17th century type, 21st century temperament  


The Duke of Hamilton kept a number of Old Style English Bulldogs with longer legs, short backs, and pump handled tails. He selected the racier ones, who where faster and able to quickly change grip. These attributes along with the tenacity of the Old Style English Bulldog lead to the development of the Staffordshire Terrier.
 It is this Bulldogge type with a modern temperament that we strive to recreate today.

Bear Garden Bulldogges

Bulldogging since 2006

Although relatively new to Bulldogges, we grew up in a large kennel surrounding. Our family ran a successful and respected kennel; breeding Carin Terriers, Newfoundlands and Akitas; producing many Canadian, American and Bermudan champions during the 1980's and 1990's. Growing up I always believed that I would follow in my parents foot steps. I wanted to be a professional handler, have a successful kennel and eventually when enough people respected my opinion be a breed judge like my father.

Now that we have our own Olde English Bulldogge Kennel we do things a little differently. I do not denounce large kennel operations, they after all exert the biggest influence on the development of our breed; many of which created the solid foundations we now credit with the steady progress of the breed. It is in a small Olde English Bulldogge Kennel however that dogs develop the characteristic that is most important sound temperament.

 We are an Olde English Bulldogge Kennel that is proud of the quality dogs we own and produce.

 To us our dogs are firstly pets they are bred to be exceptional companions with outstanding temperaments and health.Each of our dogs receive daily personal attention. We believe a dogs total development depends on human socialisation. We believe in fostering strong relationships with other breeders and with people that are wanting to be mentored in the breed.
