Preservationist breeder of Spinoni Italiani since 2002
I have been a member in good standing with the Spinone Club of America since 2003.  I am an AKC Breeder of Merit and AKC Bred-By-Exhibitor Silver Medallion awardee.  I breed per the American Kennel Club and Italian Kennel Club Spinone Italiano breed standards.  I have health screenings and certifications done on all of my Spinoni through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals per the Spinone Club of America health standard requirements, which encompasses hips, elbows, shoulders, eyes and thyroid.  All Standfast certifications are publicly listed on the OFFA website.  www.ofa.org 

I only breed a litter every three years in order to know and understand where my lines are going health-wise, conformation-wise, performance-wise and temperament-wise.  I feel that pumping out a litter (or more, yikes!) every year is not a good breeding practice in that there is no way for a breeder to know how their lines are developing, good or bad.
