Miranda's love for basset hounds led her down the path of becoming a breeder. She has been breeding basset hounds for over 15 years and actively participates in CKC conformation events with her dogs.
The absence of readily available supplies for breeders in Canada was an ongoing problem and frustration. It was from this and her passion for the dogs and breeding that The Breeders Cupboard was born.
The Breeders Cupboard started from their family farm in rural Alberta, Canada where Miranda, her husband Roger and their three children live with their basset hounds and horses.
Miranda is very careful in selecting the products and whenever possible supports other Canadian businesses.
She understands the importance of reliable, safe and quality supplies and most of the products you see in the store you will also find in her breeding cupboard.
Miranda has a keen interest and a wealth of knowledge in breeding practices, whelping techniques and raising beautiful healthy puppies.
She is on top of the latest research and techniques and is always happy to share this knowledge and experience with her customers.
You will often find her chatting to a breeder about their dogs and breeding program or mentoring a new breeder who is nervous about their upcoming whelp.
She built The Breeders Cupboard for the Canadian breeders and the products are based on experience, requests and feedback.
So please keep the requests and reviews coming.
How did she come up with the name? Miranda has a big cupboard in her laundry room full of all her dog supplies. She thought well of course every breeder has a cupboard full of their supplies.

Roger the man behind the scenes. Whether he is building shelves, picking up inventory or making sure your rush parcel gets out on time Roger is there to lend a hand.
Roger works in the Oil and Gas industry when he is not helping out at The Breeders Cupboard.
The Big Move
The Breeders Cupboard "world head quarters" as Roger likes to call it..... has moved. We are now in the 1960's Doctors Office on Main Street
Mundare Alberta. We have settled into a routine here. My bassets have quite a fan club in town now.... I bring some of them to work daily as we are a dog friendly office. I couldn't be happier that we were able to find such a great place to call home.
ANOTHER BIG MOVE!!
We have outgrown our cozy doctors office and are sadly leaving the town of Mundare. The new location is at the end of main street in Vegreville Alberta. We are working hard to make it our new home to better meet the needs of our breeders.
We have added to the team!
These lovely ladies help ensure we are getting your supplies out to you quickly.
My husband Cory and I along with our 2 gentle giants Ramsay and Temperance currently reside on an acreage near Ryley Alberta. My love for Great Danes started as a child I was fascinated by their sheer size and goofy personalities. We got our first Dane in 2011 and as they say the rest is history…I have been hooked ever since!! We will always have Danes in our home. Breeding has been a passion of mine for the last 10 years. I worked in the Veterinary field for 8 years and was very lucky to have the opportunity to help so many people and their pets.
My husband and I also enjoy traveling to dog shows with our Great Danes, as well as adding other titles….both are Advanced Trick dogs. I look forward to being able to show one of my home bred puppies in the fall of 2022 and seeing what other titles we can achieve.
Callina is a local to the Mundare area, and resides on an acreage with her Husband and their many farm animals including turkeys, chickens, a milk cow, her horse, and of course their dog. She enjoys gardening and the outdoors, and when she isn’t at the Breeder’s Cupboard she also works as the local violin instructor.
