My goal is to breed healthy and good-natured labradors which are consistent with the FCI breed standard. I value above all, that a dog is healthy in every way and it has a nice temperament with good nerves. All the possible success in shows and different kind of trials is only extra.
Assassin kennel name is approved by FCI in 1995.
I have participated some courses:
- Finnish GSD Club Breeders Course 2002-2003
- Finnish Kennel Club Breeders Course 2012
- Finnish Kennel Club Breeders Advanced Course 2012
- Finnish Kennel Club Breeding Advisers Course 2013
I have also undersigned The Breeders' Code of Ethics. I use Finnish Kennel Club's sales contracts and breeding-terms agreements. I'm a member of Finnish Kennel Club, Finnish Labrador Retriever Club and Finnish Retriever Association and also some other retriever and breeding clubs. I have always been very interested in dogs and dog breeding, that's why I try to educate myself all the time.
I feel I have been born as a dog person. Unfortunately my parents didn't share my love for dogs. Several years I had to practise taking care of hamsters, guinea-pigs and horses. But yes, I loved them also. Then finally near my 13th birthday in the year 1989 I got my very first dog. This bustling Golden Retriever meant a world to me. I really need to thank his breeder Arja Merivalo (Valorin kennel) from the bottom of my heart, because she believed in me althoug I was "just a kid".
In autumn 2014 I had a great opportunity to import yellow bitch Carromer Shimmering Dancer aka Sophie from UK. I'm so grateful for her breeders Mrs Carol & Mr Mervyn Reynolds. And in spring 2016 arrived another yellow English princess Tweedledum Lost For Words aka Cindy. Thank you Kirsi Luomanen for your trust. We hope for the best to the future!
