I have been a breeder of Pembroke Welsh Corgi since 1978
under the Joska Perm Reg’d kennel name.
I graduated from Veterinarian school in Montreal in 1977. I practice small animal medicine full time in Quebec City, Clinique Maguire Médecine Vétérinaire, and I just sold all my shares to my partner Marie-Christine Lefrançois, DMV. The Clinic specialize in reproduction, and is split approximately 60% dogs and 40% cats.
I owned my first Corgi in 1978 from Polruan Kennel (Rosalie Harvie), who was my mentor in
the breed. I have bred many Canadian and American champions, and have competed in obedience and rally. Although I am not breeding as much lately, I still own 5 Corgis. I co-own also 2 whippets
with Forgetmenot kennel (Joanne Boudreault). In the past, I also have bred 2 litters of English Cocker Spaniels.
I began judging in 2000, and I have been a licensed All-Breed judge since 2017. I love judging, travelling, meeting new friends, and seeing some very nice dogs all over the world. It gives me faith in purebred breeding.
My husband, Sylvain Deschamps, loves to show our dogs. He works as an event manager with La Fondation Cité-Joie, which provides camps for disabled people. My son Samuel is 36 years old, and is an engineer. I also have two beautiful granddaughters, Alicia and Olivia, who are 10 and 8 years old.
My hobby is horse-back riding, specifically in the hunter ring. I compete and show both in Quebec, and in Florida during the winter. Horses and dogs are my passions.
Yvonne’s start into the dog world was walking into the show ring as a Junior Handler with a big male Bouvier des Flandres at the 7-day benched Sportsman Show in Toronto, Ontario in 1969.
