A bit about us!

My husband and I run Baby Barks just outside of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  As a child, my family purchased our first Bichon Shih Tzu from Pooch Palace Kennels in 1986 and my love was born!   I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be under the mentorship of Colette Francis, retired owner/breeder at Pooch Palace.  I am so thankful to be using proven Pooch Palace genetics, which I believe can't be paralleled, and have my knowledge increased by someone of her experience.  


I'm excited to hear from you and further discuss this wonderful breed!  It will be my pleasure to match you and your family with a dog you will be thrilled with for years to come.   Thank you for considering Baby Barks!
