The Dream Team

 Tanya Packer

Founder & Designer

The inspiration for my books and collections come from working with families and young people for over fifteen years and from my love of classicly imaginative works like Narnia, Lord of the Rings, Mary Poppins, Neverending Story, Bridge to Terabithia, Magic School Bus, and Labyrinth. There is nothing that gives me greater joy than to see a child's eyes alive with the magic of a book.  For more information about Tanya Packer's books, be sure to check out her author page:

Designs by Suri 

Suri is a Canadian artist who resides on the west coast. Originally from Toronto, Ontario, she moved to Alert Bay in 2015. The island-inspired a different view and a new interpretation of her art. Since then she has made Langford, BC her permanent home. She resides 45 minutes outside of the capital city of Victoria. Her surroundings have morphed her art into something organic. Her studio is located in her home. It is her sanctuary and where she can be found opening canvases into adventures.

 Outlander Akitas

Julie's goal is to be the breeder she would want to get her dog from. She keeps in touch with all the families that buy puppies from her and this is mandatory. She wants to know what is going on and wants to be there to help when needed. Her previous puppies have all grown up to be amazing dogs with amazing temperaments. Yes, this is due to her breeding amazing tempered dogs and raising her puppies using PC techniques. But it is hugely because of the families she has chosen for her dogs. She is picky and knows who is a fit for her dogs right off the bat. She is really good at reading people even over e-mail and phone and is not scared to say no to anyone she feels isn't right for her dogs. Her dogs are her world and never get retired to new homes they will always retire with her. She does work with rescues to help them place dogs and owners who contact her for help so sometimes she does know where to get an adult Akita if that is the route you wish to take. She offers no health promise with these dogs though. She looks forward to talking and meeting anyone interested in an Akita. She does ask if you are looking into the breed but plan on another breeder please contact that breeder you SHOULD be comfortable with them and they SHOULD have the answers you need and want. She is here every step of the way and gives A LOT of her time and energy to her puppies and their families so please don't waste it.
