In 2004, I began my research of the Pharaoh Hound. After talking to many breeders and going to shows, I found my first Pharaoh, Atreyu from DesertPheonix Pharaohs. He really has been a blessing in disguise. As you see on his page, we have done it all and it has been a great ride. Three years later I got Bridget, go to her page for her story. As I got more serious about learning about the breed of Pharaoh Hounds, I did more intense research with lots of notes and found a great mentor to teach me so much more than I ever had in the past. It was then after much consideration, I chose to get a male, Uber and a female, Lala from XO Dogs.
In 2013, Kaije Kennels produced its first litter, the MOON GODS and began taking judging assignment. Accepted a few matches, 4H Regionals.
I am an AKC Juniorshowmanship Judge.
The ride to this point has been awesome. So now my dogs all participate at some point or another in Conformation, Lure Coursing, Racing, Herding, Agility, Obedience and Rally. I also teach classes at the local kennel club, conduct Canine Good Citizen Classes tests and professionally show dogs. 2015 voted to serve on the Cape Cod Kennel Club Board as a director.
I also am the moderator of two education groups on facebook. See the links page for those links.
Now I constantly strive to learn as much as I can about the breed and promote the health and versatility of the breed. I hope you find my love for my dogs exhibited throughout these pages. Thank you for visiting.
