Welcome to Sinnoma Coast Kennel located on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, we hope you enjoy your visit! 
We produce American Pit Bull Terriers for conformation, working ability, health and above all else for temperament.  Our dogs are home raised and highly socialized from an early age with adults, children and other animals. Our dogs are all registered with the U.K.C. and the A.D.B.A.  We adhere to the U.K.C's breeders code of ethics to improve and advance the breed.  We strive to have all of our dogs health tested, DNA tested and  titled before breeding to ensure that we produce high quality dogs.  Whether you are looking for a show/working/breeding dog or a companion dog, we are sure you will be satisfied with your new addition to your family.   We are a small hobby kennel and do not have litters often (we have had 5 litters in 9 years).  Please visit our puppy page for available puppies.  If you have any questions please email or call us, we would be pleased to help you.   

Our kennel opposes dog fighting of any sort and we will not sell a dog/puppy for any illegal purpose!

Mom when I grow up I want to be just like you....





He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.  He will be yours, faithful and true.
To the last beat of his heart.  You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world.....
When all other friends desert, he remains.
George G. Vest

Before contacting us please consider this. 
This breed is not for everyone.  They require a lot of obedience training, attention, a strong pack leader and exercise.  They require an owner who is prepared to have the most obedient dog on the block.  They require their owner to be the most patient, educated and respectful dog owner in their town.  Owners of this breed must constantly prove the stereotypes of this breed wrong and that is a hard road to take for some people but this is what's needed to preserve this wonderful breed.  If we fail to do all this we will see the extinction of the APBT in our lifetime.  Bad owners are only part of the problem we are facing, bad breeders are another.  Bad owners does not only apply to those who mistreat their dogs but in our eyes it also applies to those who neglect training, socialization, proper housing and those who do not strive to educate themselves and others to the fullest.  Failure to do this is detrimental to this amazing breed.  You see we have a fight on our hands which affects all breeds and all countries in the world.  How do you fight?  You follow these guidelines, be the best owner you can be, you donate to groups who fight BSL for us, you write letters to your politicians, and you never let down this breed by being irresponsible and you never quit (cause you know your dog would never quit on you). 
And now for the breeders...there are many people who call themselves breeders but are nothing more than back-yard puppy peddlers.  They will sell to anyone who has cash in hand and have no regard to proper conformation or health or temperament.  These breeders who often specialize in "bully style" bigger the better dogs, have no idea that form equals function.  What does this mean?  Well these dogs were bred to work and how can they efficiently work when there body is so out of proportion that they can not even climb on the couch.  When you take away proper form you are changing the breed which is why we don't consider "bully style" an American Pit Bull Terrier at all, not to mention many of them came from mastiff/bulldog mixing I'm sure.  This is why good breeders show their dogs and compete in events, to ensure that their dogs are worthy of being bred and worthy of continuing blood lines that were created from such hard work and dedication from the old-timers long ago.  Health testing is another issue.  These bad breeders don't understand the importance of this because they don't care what they sell and they are too ignorant to realize that they are breeding dogs that will be so unhealthy, unable to walk from hip displasia, unable to be what they were made to be and will most definately die young.  They do not have organs big enough to support such a large frame and their bodies struggle to keep themselves alive.  This is cruel, but they don't have the knowlege or the heart to understand this.  But that doesn't matter to them because they don't have contracts to even protect the buyer, and how could they guarantee anything anyway.  They have no regard for the breed only their pocket book and image.  As long as they keep having puppies and boasting their large size to wannabe tough guy buyers, this trend will only get worse.  There are a few bully kennels that are an exception to this, but not many.  Just because you put two pedigrees together does not make you a breeder.  Don't buy from these breeders, they are ruining our beloved breed one puppy at a time.  Talk people out of buying from them and confront these breeders on their shotty practices, maybe you can make one more bully breeder extinct and help preserve the proper APBT.  Breed standards are written with purpose, because form equals function and this equates to keeping a perfect breed the way it has been for many years.  And as far as the American Bully Registry, it is a joke!  These breeders are trying to justify that they are breeding good dogs by getting trophies at their shows which will never hold any merrit in the world of the American Pit Bull Terrier.  In my eyes there are two styles of the APBT, the UKC and the ADBA style and that is it!  (American Staffordshire Terriers are a different breed derived from the APBT when the AKC and CKC allowed the APBT's to be registered with them under a new name in 1936.)  Their working ability and drive has been bred out of them for the most part and I don't consider them to be an APBT even though some are registered in the UKC as such.  The UKC style is a bit bigger and not as leaned out as the ADBA style, however both are equally as great they just took different routes in their bloodline development.  If John Colby, Earl Tudor, Bert Clouse, Bob Wallace, Ed Crenshaw etc. could see what these people are doing to our breed they would be sickened that their hard work has been so disregarded and ashamed of how sloppy and unable these dogs are but especially amazed of how in such a short time the true APBT has almost disappeared thanks to these ignorant breeders.  I guess it is a reflection of our world these days, where greed, laziness, lack of ethics and lack of respect prevails.  So now you see the true damage these breeders and owners are causing, and you know what you need to do to protect and preserve the best breed on earth.
