Since 2009 - The Finest
Spanish Mastiff & Pyrenean Mastiff
Livestock Guardian Dogs
Since 2009, before anyone was talking about running LGDs in the correct numbers, Cinco Deseos Ranch was practically the lone voice in the wilderness regularly advocating pack rearing of LGD pups, and running LGDs in a pack, and using the right breeds for each situation. I am always promoting the many benefits of dog pack dynamics in the rearing of puppies, a practice that consistently produces highly advanced, confident, stable minded pups. I write extensively about running LGDs in the right numbers and how to better understand dog communication and psychology, pack dynamics, pack conflict resolution and LGD pack psychology. Since I began, I have promoted regular and consistent socialization and handling of these dogs - giving them the respect they deserve, striving to understand them - and working with them as a team. Finally, from Day One I have been an advocate and champion of running LGD SIBLING PAIRS AND TRIOS, and my customers have followed suit with sibling success. You can too!
My dogs are working in 21 states and two Canadian Provinces. I have been a "first" in the American Spanish Mastiff community in bringing over coveted top working bloodlines that had never before come to America. My Pyrenean Mastiffs are renowned for their working ability as well. The Spanish Mastiff bloodlines I have imported and owned over the years have included Abelgas, Puerto Canencia, Tornado Erben, Lu Dareva, Dartibo and Viejo Paramo. My Pyrenean Mastiff lines include Farma Stekot and Alto Aragon. The countries I have imported brood stock from over the years include Spain, Czech Republic, Poland and Italy. Lifetime breeder support, health and work guarantees, and pups who are uniquely pack raised are just some of the benefits included with Cinco Deseos Ranch puppies and dogs. No matter what the breed or cross is, you'll be getting the best. I have numerous references I can gladly provide potential customers once they complete my application process in full.
Pack raised, beautiful, rock solid, trustworthy, healthy and confident dogs with sound, keen minds and safe, stable temperaments. Dependable guardians from the best imported working bloodlines in Spain and other European countries. Successfully guarding sheep, cattle, goats, swine, fowl, property and people... In the pasture, on the ranch, on prestigious estates and huge commercial sheep outfits; small family hobby farms and homesteads; wine vineyards, in homes, or providing specialized crisis emergency response and certified therapy, Cinco Deseos Ranch pups and dogs are continually proving their incredible flexibility, intelligence, depth, guarding instinct, stable temperaments and courage.
