Who am I

My name is Pirita and I have done quite many things with dogs for whole of my life.

My very 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.

The first Dutch

Shepherd Dog in my house was Taika (BH FI CH Nambygo Dangerous Doris). With her
I fell totally in love with Dutchies and now I've got her granddaughter Noita
(Kastaalin Witch) at home.



There was a
time we did not have room enough to have a new big dog but I wanted to have a
new dog for companion and showing. So I had to find a small one that would
still get along with the big ones. I ended up having a Portuguese Podengo. It
quickly became the another favorite breed of mine. I bred two litters of
podengos and one of the puppies, Bono (Kastaalin Pehtoori) stayed at home. At
the moment I’m not planning to breed them anymore but have them as companions
only.



I have also
owned some other breeds. Belgian Shepherd Dog Groenendael, Dalmatian and
Pharaoh Hound have been my family members too. All of them have been great
personalities and are nice breeds. If only I could have so many dogs at the
same time!



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 both dogs.



Besides
going to the shows with my own dogs I am a ring steward and I often work in the shows in Finland.
