Breakthroughs

Just like you, we love Akitas. It is that simple.

 

Our story began when we decided to start something we are both passionate about after our engagement in 2011. This is when our precious boy, Kenshin, came into our life.  Just like the first Akita some of you may have owned, he is not a show dog. However, that didn’t stop us taking him to the dog shows, loving him and madly falling in love with the breed.

 

Over the past few years, we are honored to work with several prestigious Akita kennels in US and Europe such as Regalia Akitas (Carol Laubscher), and Redwitch Akitas (Dave & Jenny Kilillea and Arlene Clure), learn from them and become very close to them. We are also honored to work with and become friends with many top handlers including the legendary Akita handlers, Ms. Laurie Jordan-Fenner, and Mrs. Bobbi Kinley-Blewett, etc.

After we had our first litter in 2014, we have learned how challenging it is to transform from a show dog owner to a true breeder! Hopefully our commitment and dedication will eventually get us there under the guidance of our greatest mentors.

As far as Akita grooming and handling, it is very challenging but also fun for Wenny, a senior engineer with Ph.D from US's top engineering school. Only after a year of learning and practicing, she made breakthrough with her own special, Dream. Together, they won Owner Handler Best In Show at Pre-National Specialty 2015 and a prestigious Award of Merit. Wenny continued to make progress in handling by taking her heart dog, Fraser, to No. 1 Owner Handled 2017 (Statics by Jun) and Top 20 All Systems both 2016 with very limited showing! Together they also won Top 20 Owner Handler at the 2017 Akita National Specialty.

 

So far we are very proud of having a reputation in this business of being honest, driven, focused, and great to work with. We would like to keep it that way and aim for lasting success in both breeding and showing.

 

In addition to our effort to breed quality Akitas for showing and companion, we have been also a very active member in the Akita community. We are a proud member of Akita Club of America and Land of Enchantment Akita Club since 2012. We are also a dedicated committee member for Akita Club of America's National Specialty since the year of 2013.

 

At our kennel, each of our Akitas is loved, respected, and assisted to reach his/her full potential and happiness.
