Welcome ...happy to meet you! I am Patricia Skinner-Porter, owner/operator of HARMONY FARM Kennel And Lamb, situated in the beautiful Paxton Valley, just 35 minutes SE of Kamloops, at Monte Lake, British Columbia. Simply, your dogs are number one for me - I live and breathe everyday to love, laugh and passionately enjoy all of them! I get excited relating to their unique dog-analities, take a personal interest in caring for their health, safety and well being, walking with them, spending quality time with them and enjoy being entertained by them as well! I totally understand what it takes to trust my animal's care and safety to another. With personal appreciation of 'added value' custom service and transparent communication, I am honoured to welcome you and your canine 'family' to Harmony Farm Kennel.
With over 40 years passionately dedicated, full time, to professional animal care, training and farm management, I am grateful for the opportunity to work and play at home, devoted to my favourite 'people' - dogs, sheep and horses! Being the proud owner of this this lovely farm property since 1992, amidst open rolling pastures, lush forested mountains and fresh country air, I thrive in the peaceful location, yet appreciate the convenience of living close to both cities of Kamloops and Vernon, BC.
For your awesome dogs, I look forward to being "a nice place to stay while you're away..." for you... I intend to put your heart and mind at ease, as you allow me the loving, conscientious care of your personal dog family. Thank you for the opportunity!
"Thank you Harmony Farm Kennel And Lamb for your unparalleled care that gives happiness and serenity, and that allows amazing transitions of our sweet friends from kennel to home, which truly says it all about what you do. I dare say this on behalf of other kennel customers whose
smiles I've seen when I am there."
~ P.Curry, DVM, Lumby, BC
Having my own cherished family of dogs, cats, chickens, horses, guardian llama 'Topsey' and gorgeous flock of beloved hair sheep, raising quality foundation breeding stock as well as commercial market lambs, is an absolute pleasure. I am honoured to share my sheep and the precious time of lambing with my great friend and lambing partner Pat Curry, DVM. Together we maintain, raise, breed and lamb beautiful hair sheep of St. Croix, White Dorper and Royal White. We lamb once annually and other than lambing, we love nothing better than to share our quality stock, knowledge and experience, supporting fellow hair sheep farmers and enthusiasts.
