Ruby and Dayn with Savoie and Turks puppies, December 2013
Breeders of Turkish Kangal Dogs
Breeders of Babydoll Southdown Sheep
Nestled at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Foothills, Taylor Ranch is located in Clovis, California. Clovis is located midway between San Francisco and Los Angles, bordering Fresno, in the agriculturally rich San Joaquin Valley. The Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, which includes Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, Clovis has been known as "Gateway to the Sierras" since its incorporation in 1912. Being located in Central California has many advantages, we are less than two hours from the ocean, (including Monterrey and Carmel) and less than two hours from snow skiing (China Peak and Yosemite).
The Central Valley has many natural predators including coyote, mountain lion, and large birds of prey. This makes our Turkish Livestock Guardian Dogs called Kangals invaluable. Kangal dogs are a rare and ancient breed, they have been bred for thousands of years to protect flock and family. While we are not a kennel or "breeding facility", we are a family ranch which has discoved benefits of "natural livestock protection" and the joy of sharing our lives with an extraordinary breed of dog. We are also excited about the community of Kangal owners here in the United States and abroad whom we have come to know though our animals. We have a breeding pair of Kangal Dogs, imported from Lunac, France and are very excited about the new genetics this offers. We are planning to have a litter of Kangals pups in fall of 2012. We are excited to be new breeders of Turkish Kangal Dogs in the USA.
Our ranch has been set up to facilitate our many passions.... Kangal Dogs, Babydoll Southdown Sheep, Vintage automobiles, friends, family and fun.
