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 50 litters.
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 the best lines being used and bred to be balanced and to enjoy a long life as a result.
I can mention a lot of our Chows as an example but it’s much easier to reach the achievements of each in a single page on our website (show records and health records as well). No need to say how proud we are of our home bred World Winners and European Winners!!!
A lot of our Chows are very successful in the rings around the world and this is a huge satisfaction for every breeder as a recognition of its 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, Iceland, USA & Indonesia.
Till now we bred a lot of Champions, Multichampions & International Champions and we always try to get out the best for the breed.
