We hope you enjoy our site. We have created these pages to provide a wealth of information about the Polish Lowland sheepdog a.k.a Polish Owczarek Nizinny or PON as they are affectionately called. Whether you are considering the purchase of one of these merry sheepdogs or already own one or more (we know how hard it is to have just one!), it is our sincere desire that everyone who visits us will learn something about this rare breed. To this end we have included some facts you should know before you purchase a PON and guidelines for their selection and purchase. There will also be informative articles on such topics as: grooming, housebreaking, crate training, health survey, feeding, socializing, mouthing/biting & much more. Be sure to see the extensive section on doggie stuff to find loads of internet links for:

* dog supply catalogs *
* grooming supplies *
* jewelry *
* books *
& more!!
