I was born in Koper (Slovenia) in 1978. After I have finished high school in Porec (Croatia) I have studied at the University of Trieste (Italy). Since 2011 I lived in Croatia, after that I moved to Serbia so I moved my kennel too.
From 2006 to 2011 I was a member of HKS, and from 2012 I am a member of KSRS; and for years a memeber of breed clubs; “ANICC” Italian National Chow-Chow Club and Chow-Chow Club Austria “CCCA”. I live in a district of Belgrade with my family and my dogs. 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) and I registrated my kennel under the affix of „Shen Te Chows“ FCI 5523. The first Shen Te Chows litter was born in 2008 and till now we had over 30 litters.
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 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, Famous N’Know It Shen Te chows first in Puppy class, 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. Best Dog of FCI group V and 2nd Best Dog of FCI group V and 4th Best Junior Dog in Croatia for 2010, 2014, 2015 and many more placements at Speciality shows and a lot of placements at Club matches, Best in Show wins and a lot of Group placements. A lot of our Chows or Chows bred by us are very successful and this is a huge satisfaction for every breeder as a recognition of our work.
Our dogs are in the next foreign countries: Croatia, Slovenia, France, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Nederland, Switzerland, Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia, Sweden, Austria, Italy, Greece, UK, Belarus, Romania, Canada, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Phillippines, Estonia, USA & Indonesia.
