...the home of Cherrywood Leonbergers
and Havana Silk Dogs
Located in Northeastern Ohio, about 40 miles southwest of
Cleveland, Cherrywood is one of the oldest Leonberger breeding
and show kennels in the US and has been known for producing top
winning, Ch. Leonbergers of sound mind and body, with the best
type, temperament, and health possible since 1990. Ann Rogers is
proud to be an LCA Member Breeder, whose goal is still to
continue to improve and protect the breed and to place
Cherrywood puppies in homes that will ensure a wonderful
human/canine bond for the life of the dog. Ann also has the
distinction of being an "AKC Breeder of Merit."
Ann owned and operated Happy Tails To You School For Dogs,
which served clients in Lorain, Medina and Cuyahoga counties for
over 33 years before retiring from teaching in 2012. As an
experienced, professional instructor, dog trainer, and behavioral
consultant, she worked with close to 12,000 dogs of various
breeds and their owners in northeast Ohio over her extensive
In 2010 the Rogers added a second breed to their family, a
Havana Silk Dog . Ann says, "When was the last time you got
to be a part of something wonderful? Four years ago, while
looking for a smaller breed to add to our Leonberger family, a
friend led me to a breed club whose mission was to bring back the
genes of a beautiful, funny, healthy little dog whose origins were
found in the original little Cuban dogs; a breed thought to be lost!
"The Havana Silk Dog." Their goals and ethics are very similar to
Cheeky is the dam or our HSD "Ice Cream Litter."

taking puppy applications at this time.

Our research team at
the U of Minn and Bern
have found the LPN2
mutation which causes
about 24% of the
in Leonbergers. Breeders
now have a simple blood
test for both LPN1 and
LPN2 which can assure us
that our litters will not
have either of those
forms of polyneuropathy!
