WELCOME TO LYKOSIA
Welcome to Lykosia. We are breeders passionately dedicated to the creation and development of the Lykos breed in Australia, registered with the Australian Lykos Development Project and abide by their Code of Ethics. We support and abide by the responsible breeding and ownership of animals set down by DEPI.
We have been involved with breeding purebred dogs for 18 years and heavily involved with training/behaviour for well over 23+ years.
We are experienced in dog breeding, genetics and have the highest standards when it comes to health and temperament, as well as comprehensive DNA testing and hip and elbow x-raying all dogs used for breeding.
Our aim is to produce sound and healthy companions that fit into the Australian lifestyle, with the physical features resembling a wolf.
There are Lykosia puppy owners from the first F1 Lykos generation, who are qualified trainers and are very impressed with their abilities. Already, there are Lykos dogs doing the following work:-
- Advertising (wolf look a like in a Volkswagen advertisement)
- Therapy Dogs
- Service dogs for veterans/ex-military with PTSD
- Scent Detection dogs used in University research
- Emotional Support Dogs (Mental Health)
There are Lykos owners also training their dogs in other disciplines such as competition agility.
A lot can be said for the amount of Lykos dogs already involved in proving them to be a brilliant companion breed, not just as couch potato, support dog, affordable family pet, as well an all-round, reliable working dog that is willing to please and easy to train and be around.
The proof is certainly in the pudding when it comes to this breed in development and the future is looking very bright for the Lykos.
This breed is not classified as a "designer dog". Ours is a serious program for a breed in development by breeders with substantial experience in health, genetics and behaviour.
Developing the Lykos to perfection is a long term passion and hobby and not a business or run for profit.
