Along with my partner & associate Efrain Valle, I would like to welcome you to DRAKYI Tibetan Mastiffs! On this site you will find an abundance of information and pages filled with photos to give you a broad overview of the breed and to introduce you to the fabled Tibetan Mastiffs at DRAKYI. I first became interested in the Tibetan Mastiff in 1978 after seeing the breed featured in the cover article of an issue of Life Magazine entitled Rare Breed Dogs of the World. My interest soon led me to the home of Ann Rohrer, breed and club co-founder in the United States, where I met the majestic Kalu became a founding member of The American Tibetan Mastiff Association (ATMA), and met my beloved Kutra, the TM who inspired my lifelong Tibetan Mastiff journey. Little did I know what lay in store for me, now with 40 years as an owner/breeder/handler/author/lecturer and judge of Tibetan Mastiffs. DRAKYI Tibetan Mastiffs was founded in 1975 with friends/breed associates Ray and Linda Larsen of Dragonquest TMs, later to be joined by me with my original Dokyi prefix. The prefix amalgamation, DRA-KYI (Dragon Dogs), has been used exclusively since 1982.  Efraín, with extensive experience in animal care, socialization and husbandry, joined me at DRAKYI in 2000.  My involvement with these wonderful dogs has taken me around the world, there procuring outstanding representatives of the breed from numerous world class breeders, all of which have contributed to the renowned signature line of dogs and the many ongoing successes of the DRAKYI breeding program. Our goal in breeding the Tibetan Mastiff is to protect, preserve and produce the historic, original MASTIFF-Tsang Khyi type in the breed, to educate the public and judges alike, and to see the breed reign in its rightful ancestral place in the canine world. Foundational to most of the flock and working breeds, the true, historic Tibetan Mastiff should be a giant, powerful dog of sound structure and temperament.  The breed is ideally suited for the same reliable family, property and flock guardian duties today in the West as they were in Tibet in days gone by. As the longstanding founding breeder for the many TM kennels throughout the world, we continue to offer correct,  outstanding healthy examples of what history has revealed the breed should be this combined with unsurpassed experience and involvement with the Tibetan Mastiff.
