WELCOME TO LYKOSIA
Lykosia's founder Brooke Taylor has been involved with breeding purebred dogs for 20 years and heavily involved with training/behaviour for well over 25 years. Lykosia is our prefix (breeding name) and our breed is the Lykos (or Lykos Wolfalike).
Lykosia are passionately dedicated to the development of the Lykos Wolfalike dog breed in Australia, and are registered breeders of with the Lykos Wolfalike Council of Australia Inc and abide by their Code of Ethics. We are based in Melbourne, Australia.
The Lykos Wolfalike Council of Australia Inc. ("LWCA") is ONLY the official sponsoring parent club of the Lykos Wolfalike or any "wolfalike" dog, working towards the development of of the breed in Australia with a kennel council. The LWCA is a non-for-profit club with legal structures in place, the incorporated association is professionally run by those experienced in the sport of canine breeding, club procedures, training and other dog activities.
Brooke's original purebred breeding program (Neigepearl) developed as a formidable force and gained wonderful achievements and accolades on an Australian and international scale, with many beautiful titled working dogs in Australia and Europe. Brooke has dedicated over half her life to dogs and keeping up to date with training and behaviour, and being a very strong advocate for the ethical breeding of dogs.
We now embark on 8 successive generations (20+ years) of vision, achievements and results with our exclusive bloodlines. We own 2 desexed dogs and one possible breeding dog which we hope to plan a litter with in 2002/2023. Our canine companions are much loved family members, first and foremost! We rely on our lovely co-owners to help us progress and develop the breed.
With a history of intense research, no expense was been spared in sourcing the world's most quality, reliable foundation dogs. These bloodlines have excelled in jobs as guides for the blind, therapy, service, police, and search & rescue dogs. We have purposefully selected these lines as the foundations of the Lykos, directly in line with our vision and goals. Breeding is not just a matter of breeding a couple of attractive dogs together - even if they pass health results. It's a combination of knowledge, genetic science, creativity and art learnt over the course of over two decades.
Our aim is to occasionally breed exceptionally sound and healthy companion animals that fit into the Australian lifestyle, with the physical features of wolf, beautiful temperament, optimum health and looks in accordance with the Breed Standard.
With carefully selected genetics and our proven methods of raising our puppies in the best way possible, these aims are already coming to life!
Already, with the breed still in its infancy, there are Lykos dogs doing the following work outside the normal culture of a family pet:-
- Advertising & Marketing (acting as wolves in ads and movies)
- Therapy Dogs
- Qualified Service Dogs
- Scent Detection
- Emotional Support Dogs
- Tracking / Search & Rescue
- Sledding / Bikejoring
A lot can be said for the Lykos breed proving themselves to be a brilliant family companion breed, as well as an all-round, reliable working dog that is willing to please and easy to train. The proof is certainly in the pudding when it comes to this breed in development! The future is looking very bright for the Lykos!
Our breeding program is undertaken with the utmost professionalism with significant experience and testing in health, genetics and behaviour and we are always availaable and willing to help our puppy owners in any aspect.
Developing the Lykos Wolfalike to perfection, is a dedicated hobby and not a "business" or run for profit. To us, breeding is about developing the breed and our bloodlines in the best way possible, using science and our experience in 20+ years in canine behaviour, placing it as the utmost importance.
