Arcticlight Samoyeds breeding gentle, sound samoyed dogs
A boutique kennel situated in the Central Coast area of New South Wales, Arcticlight Samoyeds has been showing and breeding Samoyeds since 1988.
I have been around Samoyeds all my life. My parents bred and showed Samoyeds in and around Sydney during the 1960s. I watched and learned from them and developed a lifelong love for this very special breed.
My first bitch was Aust. Ch. Arcticlight Just Do It who I named Holly. At that time I operated under the kennel name of Samaska. With Holly’s help, I went on to breed Kyro, Elle, Maggie and many more beautiful pups from this outstanding bitch.
Over the years I have met many people who were either other breeders or who shared a common interest in Samoyeds. Treasured friendships have developed over many long hours discussing our dogs and I have been personally rewarded by their involvement in my life.
Temperament and soundness
As a Samoyed breeder, professionalism has always been important to me, selecting for sound examples of the Samoyed standard;. My emphasis has always been on good structure and movement as well as on each dog's temperament suitability.
As part of my commitment to my craft and to the Samoyed breed, my dogs are all hip-scored and x-rayed prior to breeding. When choosing the Dam and Sire, I look not only for physical soundness and temperament but for confidence and emotional gentility.
All my puppies are reared in a warm, family environment. They receive very basic command training which includes being properly house-trained. When the pups leave my kennel they have all been vaccinated, vet checked and micro-chipped. I also offer ongoing support to the new family or kennel.
