Welcome to Best Shepherds

maggett-scBouchard's Best Shepherds has been breeding, and raising AKC, Olde World, Long Coat, German Shepherds for the past 20 years. We are now also known for our Mini American Shepherds. Bouchard's Best Shepherds is one of the very few breeders with AKC Registered Mini American Shepherds, previously known before AKC recognition as Mini Australian Shepherds. If you are looking for a German Shepherd, or a Mini American Shepherd, you have come to the right place.

Bouchard's Best Shepherds Home, and Kennel is located just outside of Charleston on Yonges Island. Meggett is a small, quaint, coastal town with friendly people. A small community where everybody knows your name. Meggett is a peaceful, quiet community of creeks, marsh, old homes and new, old families and newcomers – all located just 20 minutes from downtown Charleston and 20 minutes from the sandy shores of Edisto Beach on the Atlantic. We are readily accessible from Rte. 17 onto Route 165, nearby Interstate Route 95. Our original Best Shepherds Kennel known to so many of our customers was previously located in Petersham, Massachusetts. Our new location provides us with a better year-around climate for our breeding and training facility, with 14 acres, our own salt water pond, huge fenced, and unfenced areas for our dogs to run, play and swim. Truly a dogs paradise. Our dogs are allowed to thrive in a fresh, natural environment that provides plenty of fresh air and exercise fields, salt water pond to swim in all contributing to healthy bodies, and minds. We are conveniently located just 15 miles to Charleston. Charleston is a great city to visit with our dogs, as it is so dog friendly. Our dogs enjoy The Charleston Dog Park, local restaurants, the harbor waterfront and more. Charleston is one of the most dog friendly city's in the country. This is an added bonus for our dogs as they get to meet new people, meet other dogs, and experience human interaction in real life settings. This contributes to incredible temperaments, and well mannered dogs. Going out to eat, shopping, strolling down the main streets of Charleston, or just walking along the waterfront makes for sound minds, and wonderful, calm, relaxed, socialized dogs. It doesn't get any better than this.
