Darkstone Kennel is owned by Betty and Byron Osing, and is located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We live on a very private acreage just west of the City. Our home is situated on eight acres, with approximately four acres of lawn, with more than an acre of lawn fenced in with six foot steel mesh fencing. Our dogs do not lack for room to safely and securely play and exercise.
First and foremost, we are not “commercial” breeders who pursue dog breeding and showing as a hobby and a lifestyle. We are simply “dog lovers.” We are passionate about our dogs, and we consider them to be a part of our family. Our dogs live in our house with us as our “hairy kids,” and they are a central part of our daily lives. We do not have a traditional kennel set up or dog runs, we are simply a hobbyist or “passionate” that shares our home with our family of dogs and we expect our co-owners and breeding partners from other kennels to have the same philosophy. Dogs that are co-owned by Darkstone Kennel are always placed with friends or close associates that we have come to know and trust to a very high degree. While we have owned dogs for over 30 years, we permanently registered and have been operating as Darkstone Kennel with the Canadian Kennel Club
