WELCOME TO WALDEN KENNEL

We breed Australian Shepherds with  dedication and serious study. Not only because we love these dogs, but also because we want contribute to the quality and popularization of this incredible breed across the United Kingdom.

Our story begins in 2016 with the Wind Spirit The Way Life Was Meant To Be “Henry Thoreau” coming to our lives after a careful selection process which was guided by Beatriz and Marcia Bertero from the Wind Spirit kennel with whom we have an incredible partnership. The Wind Spirit kennel is a great world reference in the breeding these beautiful and incredible dogs.

In 2017 the Wind Spirit Set Fire To The Rain “Emma Goldman” came to our lives thus creating a solid genetic line for the development of our kennel.
