PUPDATE: December 2019 (finally!)

Doggies are now over 4 years and Puppies over 2 years so not really puppies any longer.

Ubhalo is a family-focused creative home that produced two litters of Catalan Sheepdog puppies from a much-loved dam, Sephie.

We are not large commercial or kennel-based breeders; our aim to keep small and create a safe and nurturing environment for the developing puppies. 

This website was created so that the people who wanted to have a Catalan of their own could start to form a bond with their puppy and follow its development. 

It continues now that all the puppies have left us so that we can follow their progress and share news, information and advice. The information and advice contained on the website are suggestions and are not intended to replace expert advice and recommendations.  

Moire is the main carer in the family with a background in publishing that often involved exacting standards and lengthy elastic hours. This was good apprenticeship for puppy-rearing, needing abundant patience and good humour. She continues to research Catalan Sheepdog health and behavioural developments.

Raising Sephie was a fantastic learning curve for us and richly rewarding – having multiple pups was, without doubt, constant entertainment! 

Rob is a technical project manager who delights in finding technology solutions to enhance his time with our dogs, like tracking and analysing their walks as well as hosting the website and updating the content.

Our boys take the dogs for playful excursions and we all love our daily cuddles and affections.

We want our pups to remain treasured and help promote a healthy, secure future for the breed. 

Our aim was to ensure that the puppies were homed in good faith, according to the KC Code of Ethics. We uphold and exceed our status as Assured Breeders. Furthermore, we share the advice from our mentors and our ongoing experiences for the good of all Catalans.


We sought and obtained recognition from the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme so that you know that we’re people who care for our animals, their welfare, health and environment. We’re now Associates as we’re unlikely to have another litter in the near future.

Our reason for having puppies was that we so very much love our Catalan Sheepdog, Persephone (Seph for short) and as she is such a loving, intelligent and loyal member of the family we wanted to provide that experience to others.

The Catalan Sheepdog is quite a rare breed in this country so we elected to do our part to ensure there are more of them here. Additionally we thought it would be a fantastic experience to share with our family.

We are located in a very scenic and reknowned part of Norwich near Norwich Cathedral.

There are many green areas and/or entertaining walks in the vicinity and the area has a good sized dog population with which to socialise.

Being in the heart of the city meant our pups were aware of all manner of noise and disturbance before moving on to new homes.
