Our Gentle Giants!

We take our name from our first two beloved mastiffs, Duncan and Kirk. Duncan came into our lives in January 1998 and we have been hooked ever since. Kirk got us addicted to showing in 2000 and we haven't stopped. We've learned a lot about our breed over the years and are happy to share that knowledge. We are strong believers in breeding healthy, well-tempered dogs that meet the breed standard. We breed occasionally. Our family is located on Long Island in New York. Look for us at dog shows in the tri-state area. We are members of Mastiff Club of America and founding members of Empire State Mastiff Fanciers.

See the videos and article on our Mastiff Info page:


Bones joins the set of Littlethings.com for a Facebook Live segment on Mastiffs. We hear it was one of their most engaging segments yet!


We filmed a short video for the AKC to help change the conversation from breeders are the enemy, to showing that breeders are the true champions of our breeds.


We helped run another successful Mastiff booth at the AKC Meet the Breeds event during the Westminster KC shows. The MCOA booth was featured in the April issue of the Canine Chronicle.
