Sprenkels American Bulldogs
We got our first American Bulldog, Ollie, several years ago. We were ill-prepared for a strong minded, working breed. Without much guidance we learned what worked, and what doesn’t work. We learned all the quirks of the breed that make them a desirable companion and then all the not so great traits that require a serious owner to manage them.
Our dogs live in house and puppies are raised underfoot. We believe that well- tempered dogs that do well in a busy household will produce puppies with the same temperament. Because we raise all our dogs in our house we only keep as many dogs as we can manage. We rely heavily on our co-ownership program. Our dogs are raised holistically, fed a raw meat diet and follow the limited vaccine protocol. All dogs in our breeding program are health tested prior to breeding which includes hips, elbows and genetic diseases NCL/ICH/HUU.
We are very passionate about American Bulldogs and responsible breeding. We have travelled all over USA to show, work and compete with our dogs. I have dedicated a large part of my life to learning the breed and everything that comes with it. Bully breeds are often the target of BSL, we feel it is our responsibility to be advocates of responsible ownership. American Bulldogs are not for everyone, they require strong leadership and structure. We believe American Bulldogs should be a versatile dog. They may not be the best at everything, but they will certainly try! We have done weight pull, protection sports, dock diving, scent detection, barn hunt, lure course, obedience and conformation with our dogs.
Although all our puppies take a piece of our hearts as they leave on their new adventure, we trust that their new homes offer them a great life and keep us updated. We love to hear about our puppies and we measure our success on the feedback we receive. I can’t stress enough that I am available 24/7 365 days a year for any issue, concern, cute photo or update you want to share with me. If I don’t know the answer to your problem, I have a network of help I can call on. It is never a bother to hear from our own puppy owners or any other American Bulldog owner that needs advice.
We are a small, registered kennel located in Abbotsford, BC (close to Vancouver BC and USA-Canada border). I have been heavily involved in American Bulldogs for 13 years – from conformation shows to performance events – we do it all with our dogs. I am an officer for our breed club, United States American Bulldog Club. I also work full-time to support my dog addiction and am a mother to a fourteen year old daughter Brooklynn.
