Cinco Deseos Ranch
Please contact me via E-mail first. I do not answer cold telephone calls anymore about my dogs due to the high volume of queries I receive. If you have questions about breed suitability for your own situation, and are not a customer of mine, please use my consulting service. To be blunt, my feeling is if you are "too tight" to spend $40 on a serious consultation about a serious commitment like an LGD, then you probably aren't taking the purchase of an LGD seriously. Due to my workload and ranch obligations, I don't have the time to give endless "free advice" anymore to non-customers. I am very selective as to who I sell my dogs to and my application process is detailed for that reason. Real, WORKING ranches and farms (i.e., commercial operations) are always given first priority over hobby farms and pet homes. Each application is considered on a case by case basis and my decision will be based entirely on how well you have filled out the application and your suitability for these dogs.APPLICATIONS WITHOUT REQUIRED PHOTOS AND ENOUGH INFORMATION ARE NOT RESPONDED TO.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you air ship puppies? No. I prefer customers come to my ranch to meet the pack and have ample time for questions and introductions. I have used quality third party ground shippers in the past but they are very expensive. Winnemucca has many good, affordable motels and a great, historic Basque restaurant. My ranch is conveniently located just 20 minutes from Interstate 80.
What are your prices? Spanish Mastiff puppies are $1500. Pyrenean Mastiff puppies are $1200. Older, broke, going, trained dogs priced $1000-2000 & up. depending on breed, age, etc. See respective breed pages and News/Litters page for what is planned or available. Reservations are required on my litters.
Do I have to fill out an application? Yes. No exceptions. I screen buyers carefully. I'm not a puppy mill or an opportunistic "backyard" hobby breeder and therefore, limit my litters now to 1 to 2 litters per year, to ensure placement with top tier customers and working homes.
Will you help me get set up to breed these dogs? No. I used to give support to customers for breeding my dogs but after having my trust, advice and help abused, ignored and/or exploited by copycats, I now no longer support or recommend anyone breeding my dogs out there. I require a signed spay/neuter contract from all buyers. No exceptions.
I found someone advertising a litter of pups out of your bloodlines. How can I tell if they are really Cinco Deseos Ranch bred dogs or not? Please contact me by E mail and I will help you to the best of my ability. I have detailed records of all my litters and buyers. Because my dogs are famous, well known and renowned for their work ethic and top imported bloodlines, through the years I have been told about people claiming to have my bloodlines/dogs but who actually do not. Likewise recently I have been notified of people trying to pass off my dogs they own, as being imported from Spain or bred by themselves - when they were bred by me, and born here on my ranch. I do know of at least two people doing this and who they are. Please contact me if you have run into issues like these and I'll be glad to clarify things for you with the truth...not fiction.
What is included in your price? Health replacement guarantee, all first puppy vaccinations, several de-wormings, unique pack rearing on cattle and sheep, micro chipping, vet check and health records for your convenience. My litters are handled from birth and raised within a pack of 15 dogs. My dogs are now working in over 25 states and 2 Canadian provinces - and I have several repeat customers, several now who own 6 to 7 dogs from me. Lifetime breeder support is included as long as the customer stays in touch as required.
I have lots of questions about your two breeds. Can you talk to me about them to help me decide? Yes, and no. Again, as stated above, due to the huge volume of queries and calls I receive over time, with my work load, limited time and resources, I no longer give "free advice" to non-customers. If you are not an existing customer, please avail yourself to my consulting service and I can help you decide. I also give plenty of good, sound and free advice on my blog and in the many articles I publish yearly in a variety of ag-based publications. Once you become a customer you receive my lifetime support as long as you keep in touch with me as required.
Where is your Spanish Mastiff blog? The link is here. My blog is now receiving 14,000 + hits a month. On my home page are also links to my Google + page (coming up on 1 million visits) and my Pinterest page. There are plenty of article links, photos and more that you can read on those pages, that are completely free to access. Please remember all my work is copyrighted. Please feel free to avail yourself to those resources and share the links with others.
Do you OFA X ray your dogs? Yes. I will be OFA HD & ED certifiying Cinco Deseos Ranch Gwangi and Yessi Tornado Erben. Yessi won't be bred till 2018. YES - HD and ED DO strike the Spanish Mastiff breed frequently.
Do you give ranch tours? Only to people who fully complete my puppy application well in advance. NO winter tours.
Do you offer stud service by your males? NO.
