Who are we
At the moment we have three dogs at home: Dutch Shepherd Dog Witch, Portuguese Podengo Bono and Dino the Pharaoh Hound.
I have done quite many things with dogs for whole of my life.
My first own dog was the Welsh Springer Spaniel Rudy (CIB FI CH EST CH EST W-93 Mandeville Ragtime Rudy). With her daughter Tutta (BH Kastaalin Ariadne) I started rescue dog training and Tutta was the first Springer Spaniel to pass the service dog's behavior test in Finland.
My first Dutch Shepherd Dog was Taika (BH FI CH Nambygo Dangerous Doris). With her I fell totally in love with Dutchies and now we have her granddaughter Witch (Kastaalin Witch).
There was a time we did not have room enough to have a new big dog so I had to find a small one that would still get along with the big ones. So I ended up having a portuguese podengo. It quickly became my another favorite breed.
We have also a Pharaoh Hound just for fun.
Nowadays I like to go to the dog shows with my dogs and train service dog's searching and obedience with Witch. Sometimes we also do some tracking with all the dogs.
Besides going to the shows with my own dogs I am a ring steward and I often work in the shows in Finland.
