At Ironsmith Alabai, we are devoted to preserving the historically accurate, traditional Central Asian Shepherd dog. This is a functional working animal, and requires a functional form; we do NOT breed for "XXXL" sizes, exaggerated features, or exotic out-of-standard colours. Trends will come and go, but tradition is timeless. If you are interested in the true Turkmen type dog bred right here in Ontario, Canada, you have come to the right place.
