About Us

I have lived with dogs for over 35 years, which is most of my life. Loving them helped me understand the needs of pets for them to grow up healthy and happy. For me, dogs are the best teachers, source of inspiration, they show me the way in life and motivate me to create. Living with dogs made me feel how important a source of love for a pet is in every person's life.

My first dog, a silver poodle named Kika, inspired me to step into the world of pets and to delve into the peculiarities of dog care and breeding. While raising Kika, I learned the secrets of poodle grooming and at the age of 16 I was already working as a dog groomer. At the age of 18, I became the president of the poodle club, and at the age of 23, I became an international judge, the youngest judge in the world. During my career, I looked at animals from different perspectives (owner, groomer, breeder, judge), but my great love for dogs led me to the path of a breeder. This is my true vocation, to which I have dedicated my life.

In 1994 I founded Tauro Kennel, a loving home where we breed Pomeranian Spitzes, Maltese Bichons and Bichon Frises. I raise all dogs as my own children, giving them love, personal attention and special care. All of this is ensured by the help of the team at Tauro Kennel, which consists of veterinarians, behaviourists, dog groomers and dog sitters. Here we provide the best conditions for puppies to be able to grow up healthy, happy to be able to achieve victories.

As a breeder, I set the highest standards for myself. When breeding dogs, I always idealize their breed and its uniqueness, so I always do thorough research to select the right genetic line. Thanks to careful breeding and my long-term experience, beautiful and intelligent babies are born that perfectly meet the breed standard. This can be proved by the achievements of our kennel.

The vision of Tauro Kennel is to breed purebred puppies worthy of the championship title and to see them off to loving families where they will create happiness and give moments of joy every day. But our work does not end here! When a puppy is sent off to its new home, its new owners become part of one big Tauro Kennel community, with whom we celebrate kennel celebrations and share sweet moments. We offer advice for the owners throughout the life of the puppies, help them solve emerging problems, and together we enjoy achievements of the pets in both their career and family life.
I, like thousands of breeders in the world, understand that I perform a very responsible job - I create and give the love born in the kennel to a new home, where a cute puppy can change the whole life of the owner. I wish you, the new owners of the puppies, to experience this love as well.
