Nuba and me competed in the last national Rally obedience competition for the season 2009 on 18.10. 2009. We were placed on excellent 3rd place in category RO III. Judge: Mr. Sašo Cvek. And what is more-we were placed on 3rd place also altogether-in national championship of Slovenia, category RO III, for the year 2009. BRAVO!!! I think Nuba proved again, that she is not just excellent showing bitch, but also outstanding working female. There are not much dogs with such a results on both fields... I am very proud on her!

We are planning few dog shows during next months. First of all, Diva will try to finish her Slovenian junior championship in Vrtojba (international dog show) next weekend and at the end of November (20.11) we will participate on club show for molossoids breeds in Zagreb (CRO) with Nuba, Diva and Val. Can't wait to meet some swissy owners again...


We are back from the world dog show, which took place in Bratislava this year. I am enraptured with the results, specially with the results of Nuba. She became VICE WORLD CHAMPION in beauty, so second most beautiful bitch in the world! She proved again, that she really is very special, once in a lifetime dog, a typical representative of the breed with amazing character. My perfect girl! On sunday we participated also on speciality show, which was organised by Slovakian club for swiss mountain breeds. Results:

Nuba (champion class): excellent 1, CAC, res. CACIB, vice world winner in beauty

Val-Vilin Karantanski (intermediate class): excellent 4
Devil Karantanski (youth class): excellent 4

Diva showed all her "stupidities" in the ring. She was jumping all the time between running and later also didn't want to stand. We definitely need few "show trainings"...

Nuba (champion class): excellent 1, CAC

here were so much things going on during this summer months. I was quiet busy with studying for my last exam at the university, so I wasn't updating my web so regularly. This month and a half of studying was really long and tiring, but yes-I graduated and now I am officially-doctor of veterinary medicine. I am sure all the knowledge I got during this last 6 years of study will help me with ensuring the highest quality of breeding.

Me and Nuba participate at Rally obedience competition in KD Maribor yesterday. The work was mostly very good, Nuba shows her strong working abilities again and we finished as second in category RO III. I decided to change the way of our trainings about 2 months ago. Although we didn't work so much, because of all my engagements, I think some results are alredy visible (work is more dynamically). Judge: Mr. Kolman.


We compete also previous weekend at KD Barje where we were placed at 2nd place as well. Judge: Mr. Lukanc. We had a very nice time at the competition and both-Nuba and Diva enjoy meeting their four legged friends again.

More I have to mention excellent show results of our dogs. At the end of August we participate at two national dog shows. Nuba was entered at CAC Samobor (CRO) and she won in quiet strong competition. She gain excellent 1, CAC, BOB and in addition she got BOG 3rd place. With this fourth gained CAC she also finished croatian championship in beauty. Judge: Mr. Dušan Paunović (SRB). And the next day me and Diva drove to CAC Trbovlje. She won between young bitches, got excellent 1 and PRM and she opened her junior champion title. Judge: Mr. Miroslav Zidar (SLO). Well done my girls!!!

Nuba celebrated her 4th birthday past week. Happy birthday my perfect swissy! Time really flies by so fast. I long for many more years with you. As Diva was 6 months few days later, she got her own cake too. And today me, Andrej and Stane (buddies from our club) drive to Rakitna to visit schoolchildren who were there spending a week in the nature. We introduced them to dogs (different breeds, grooming, feeding, etc.) and search & rescue work. I took Diva with me. She was very happy among all those children petting her and giving her cookies. The "real work" was done by Var and Tisa, experienced SAR dogs from our club.


Me and Nuba were very successful today. At Rally obedience competition, which was organised by KD Ljubljana, we won 3rd place in category RO III. Judge: Marjan Polajnar. And here are also great news about our puppies. Dijk, Darma and Kal (Dart) Karantanski already finished their puppy class. Congratulations to their owners. We wish them a lot od joy with their dogs also in higher classes from obedience. Two pictures of our Diva enclosed.


We got super news from Czech Republik yesterday. Our Dora Karantanska won very promissing 1 on her first dog show this weekend (puppy class). Congratulations to Dora and her owners. Well done! We wish you a lot of good results also in the future. And here you can see short movie of Dora and puppies from kennel Lucky Swiss, which was made approximately one month ago. CLICK

After 2 months, which me and Nuba spend in Vienna (A), we are finnaly at home. I was fascinated at this old town, it's old buildings, glorious parks and it's friendly atmophsfere for dogs. Moreover my practical work at the veterinary university there was great. Despite that, it is so nice to come back home between our forests and meadows.
While we were abroad, many interesting things happened here. Diva grew up a lot and she is typical, puckish young swissy. We are starting with her trainings in these days and in may she is already entered for her first dog show. Nuba finished on the 5th place in the competition for the best show dog for the year 2008 under our breed club, which counts 32 breeds. The resultat is even more shiny, as she was entered into competition with only 6 shows (out of 10 possible), as I didn't show her so much past year. And that is not all. 19.4. there was a national dog show in Maribor (SLO) and our VAL (Vilin Karantanski) won JBOB and BOB there. That was only his second show and he is 16 months old now, so that is really great result for so young dog. Congratulation Matej and Val. We are very proud on you!

We paricipate on international dog show in Zagreb today. Nuba is not in the best form at this time, as she is changing her coat exceedingly, but she still got CAC and CACIB in competition with two other bitches. BOB goes to Austrian male this time. Judge: Heidi Kirschbichler (A). Here you can see also two newly pictures of our puppies with their owners.


We renovated page for puppies from our D litter. There are new pictures added- some already from their new homes. Click on the individual dog for more info. ::HERE::
Here you can see a funny film of our Dora Karantanska, which was made by her owners. ::CLICK::
In the last few days we finally got some sun. We made the best of it and took long walks around, some with our friends too. The pictures below are from walk with Athos and Best.


Our puppies are already in their new homes. Dijk, Dallas, Dart, Devil, Don, Duma, Dora and Darma will embelish future days to their new owners. Good luck in new homes my little tresures. And I wish also a lot of joy with our puppies to all new "swissy humans".
We keep one little girl (Diva) also with us, so you can read more about her on our pages soon.


We added new puppy photos in the age of 6 and 7 weeks on our page. ::MORE::

We were on specialitiy show for swissies, which took part in Ljubljana yesterday. We had our fingers crossed for Val (Vilin Karantanski) and Matej, as it was their first dog show. They really made a great job. Val received excellent 1, JW, junior club champion for the year 2009 and junior BOB. Judge: Satu YLÄ-MONONEN (FIN). Congratulation Matej and Val!!!

Our small villain became real little devils. They are so lively. At the moment it is very interesting thing to practise, how to give a kiss on the cheeks or nose, how to tidy our hairs, how to bite the brother or sister in a tail and than run away, that he/she can not get you, how to snarl and bark in a "swissy way", etc. In the "sleepy" hours we are petting a lot. We spend an our or two outside every day. We made new individual photos and they will be here in a few days... For now I enclose some photos from today...
