Svajonė Kennels, Where Type is Essence.
We here at Svajonė reside in the beautiful Pacific NorthWest about 35 minutes outside of Portland, Oregon. We are a Mother-Daughter team that work hard to raise and breed quality dogs while preserving the breeds in our small breeding program. We are so thrilled to be able to work with amazing breeders and mentors while contributing to the betterment of our individual breeds. It is not a responsibility that we take lightly. As preservation breeders we strive to produce healthy dogs that are correct to their breed standard in structure, type, and temperament. We absolutely love chatting about our dogs and program, please feel free to reach out at anytime.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Mother & Daughter
Animals have been a living and breathing part of me since before I could walk. Most people have videos of their first steps as a child. I, however, have a video of my first time on the back of a horse. I grew up raising AQHA & APHA Cow Horses. My mom involved me in every step from pedigree, health, and conformation research for finding the right stud for our mare to birthing, raising, and marketing the foal. My mom also rehabilitated DA and HA Rottweilers and GSDs throughout my childhood. We had many success stories but, sadly, we also had failures. As I grew up I understood that it was not my mother's fault that she couldn't be successful with certain cases as well equipped as she was, nor was it really the dogs fault. It all came back to the breeder. Either irresponsibly breeding without proper knowledge, education, and commitment or failing the dog by placing the puppy incorrectly.
As I did my research to bring home my first well bred AKC purebred puppy, I knew that I wanted to help the future of dog breeding. As I dipped my toes in the Fancy of Purebred dogs, I was hooked. Here we are 5 years later and we now have 4 wonderful breeds that we can not wait to contribute to as trainers, breeders and co-breeders. It truly does take a village!
