Welcome to Our Site!!
LNL Bordeaux is run by Sean and Judy Cantrell.
Sean has been in the breed since 1999 in some capacity or another; whether it was owning, showing, or breeding them. He got his first dogue after following breeders on the show circuit for over a year. He is extremely passionate about this breed and loves them with his whole being. Living in Northern California, there were not many Dogues de Bordeaux around, but California was a wonderful place for raising these guys.
Judy married into the breed. She moved from Delaware to California to be with Sean in 2009. When they first met in 2008, Sean already had 2 DDBs. It was the best instant family she could have asked for. Together their love for the Bordeaux flourished. They carefully picked and chose “kids” to add to their family.
When Kirby joined their family, Judy thought it would be fun to learn to show him. It was something she had wanted to do for many years and now had the perfect opportunity. She has been an owner/handler since 2011. Along the way, she met many amazing dogues and people including breeders, pet owners and admirers of the breed. It has been an exciting journey ever since.
In 2014, they moved from California to Delaware. Driving cross-country with a pack of dogues was a truly adventurous trip!! (Thank you, Bill. They couldn’t have done it without you!!)
LNL is a small hobbyist kennel. They will produce an occasional litter. They are not in the business of making more dogues! They care about upholding the breed standards that have been set, as well as improving the overall health. They have high standards for themselves and high expectations. They want people to be happy with their LNL puppy. Whether it is a pet or show potential dogue, it will be of excellent quality.
The name LNL Bordeaux stands for Love and Laughter (LNL). This breed will make you laugh with their silly antics, funny expressions, or just the situations they get into. They are humble clowns. They will give you something to make you laugh every day. And every day they will give you love. They are the sweetest dogs on this planet.
Life with a Bordeaux… it is a life truly packed with love and laughter.
