About Us                                                         

First established in 1986 under the name Ski's Kees
 
My first Kees,Dusty Rose, was obtained from Shelly Rooks,
Bischar Kennels.
Dusty Rose ~ our first breeding Bitch was sired by CH Bischar Different Drummer
and Candray's Funny Girl.

Funny girl, was sired by CH Dalkee's Mighty Samson  X  CH Candray's Dynamite.

CH Bischar Different Drummer goes back to International-renowned
Flakkee Kennels, Wistonia Kennels  and 
Duroya Kennels of England  
as well as Coventry Kennels (USA).


When looking for a  Proven Top Quality Producing male for Dusty  I went to Aurora Kennels (USA).
Dusty Rose  was bred to CH Aurora's Cubby McCloud, ROM who produced
Ski's Kees Cup of Fluff.  Cubby was sired by AM/CH Dalkees Mighty Samson, ROMX

Still striving to improve my lines I bred Cup of Fluff to  AM/CH Yan-Kee Nemian Marcus.
& produced  AM/CH Ski's Kees Park Avenue  and  AM/CH Ski's Kees Ivan the Terrible

Dogwood Keeshond foundation AKC Champion Ski's Kees Ivan the Terrible  NAN Greenwood Medallion winner

I liked what CH Yan-Kee Nemian Marcus produced and realized the value of this fine stud.  In studying pedigrees I found that most of the winning dogs today go back to this exceptional male. 
Many thanks to  Holly Colcord  Yan-Kee Kennels.  
Cup of Fluff  was one of the last to bred to this exceptional example of a Keeshond
 

These National Specialty Winning and Non Sporting Group placing dogs are
the Foundation behind Dogwood Keeshonden Kennels.

Brenda McElhaney, Aurora Kennels has been a mentor and friend, she introduced me to Jan Wannamaker, Candray Kennels.

I acquired CH Aurora's Continental Cowboy, Carlita and Fable from Aurora Kennels
and CH Candray Comet from Jan Wannamaker
 
I reorganized in 1998 under the name Dogwood Keeshonden
breeding Carlita, Fable and Comet to my stock to produce what has now become
