Our goal as a breeder is to keep the breed healthy, with temperament and structure within the standards required by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) / American Kennel Club (AKC). We are affiliated with The Kennel Club, member of the Australian Shepherd Club of the UK (ASCUK) and member of the National Australian Shepherd Association (NASA) always reproducing within the required standards. We have a passion for the breed and for our puppies!
WHO WE ARE
We are a couple in love with what we do, determined to produce the most amazing Australian Shepherds and give them the best possible life. I, Gilberto Pompeu, always grew up surrounded by animals in my life and dogs always occupied a special place in my heart but it was only when I became a biology student when I decided that I would become a breeder of Australians what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. This breed that besides being beautiful is very intelligent, resistant, strong and with an incredible personality has become my focus, almost an obsession which led me to a lot of study and research and the contact with Marcia Bertero from Kennel Wind Spirit a great creator of the breed with several important international conquests and with her work very well marked in the history of the breed and that luckily develops her work in São Paulo – Brazil, a city close to my hometown, despite 6 hours by car, what made us partners in this project of mine and more than that, friends.
We at Walden Kennel owe a lot to the advice and careful advice from Marcia and everyone from the Wind Spirit kennel team. In 2016, Jéssica Pompeu, my wife and great partner, and I got Thoreau for our family, which only increased the excitement, dedication and passion for this project. In 2018 we started moving from Rio de Janeiro here to Cambridge, also with Emma in our family. Currently we are a small kennel, with only one couple, but because we decided to do it, little by little, because we believe that a lot of learning is achieved during the process. We intend to continue fixing our roots here in England, most likely moving a little more to the side of the field and continue expanding our kennel, but without haste and always with each step very well thought out before being taken.
