I fell in love with the breed in the ’90 and I got my first chow in 2000. I started to breed chow-chows in 2006. in Novigrad-Istria (Croatia) when I founded and registrated my kennel under the affix of „SHEN TE CHOWS“ , “Shen Te” in chinese language means divine.
In 2011 I moved from Novigrad (Croatia) to Belgrade so I moved my kennel too.
I am International judge for FCI group V (all breeds) from 2013 and for group IV from 2015.
The first Shen Te Chows litter was born in 2008. Breeding is an art, intuition, analytics, love and passion. Breeding starts with a vision, a dream and a dream dog in our minds. Our goal is the “complete” chow chow with exceptional temperament, structure, health and beauty…show dogs and companions. The “dream chow” that our kennel is working towards is represented in lines being used all over the world, bred to be balanced and to enjoy a long life as a result.
As a perfect example I would like to mention our home bred boy MultiBISS Ch Fantasy Gin Shen Te Chows that at the age of only 2 years is already a proud “owner” of 3 all breed BEST IN SHOWS in 3 different countries: Italy, Austria & Slovenia, a multiple JUNIOR BEST IN SHOW WINNER at all breed and Speciality shows, multiple Clubwinner with a lot of Group placements. Only in 2018 he has been judged by 27 different judges awarded with 18 Best of Breeds & 4 Best of Opposite. Gin is loved and handled to perfection by a member of our team; our one & only Eva Brelih. I am proud of each of our achievements and placements on Club Shows all around Europe especially at the Italian Raduno where our Diamond Shen Te Chows in 2017 became Absolut Best In Show and in 2019 he won the BEST IN SHOW at IDS Malmo, Sweden 3000dogs entered. Gin’s and Diamond’s brother frodo – Ch Famous N’Know It Shen Te chows was Puppy class winner at Raduno, multiple countries Clubwinner, Groupwinner and 2019 Res.BEST IN SHOW WINNER at NDS Rovinj, Croatia. Ch Shen Te Chows Nelly Raduno 2014 – 1st place Puppy class females, Raduno 2015 – 1st place Intermedia class females, Raduno 2016 – 3rd place Open class females, Slovenian Clubwinner, Slovakian Clubwinner; Best Female Puppy Raduno 2016, 2nd Best Male Puppy Raduno 2016…some older achievements as Purina Pro Plan Cup Croatia 2009, Purina The Best Puppy 1st place and Purina The Best Puppy 3rd place, Top Ten Croatia 2010.
