We are Aljaž Tratnik and Barbara Potočnik. We live with our dogs Lina, Aida, Bonnie and Tillie in a house in Slovenia, Carinthia region. We are a small, family run kennel (hooked on a show bug:), breed the occasional litters to keep something for ourselves for the future and for others who want our puppies. All our dogs are a part of our family, loved, respected and well taken care of.
We are owners/breeders/co-breeders of:
First smooth-rough collie litter in Slovenia
TOP 3 Winning Puppy from herding breeds 2022
Multi BOG, BOB, BOS winning collies (NDS, IDS, speciality shows)
Our goal is to preserve and improve the breed in terms of appearance, character and health. To breed and show healthy and stable dogs that meet the FCI standard as close as possible and have also been thoroughly tested for health. We strive for a heakthy dog with a sound body, correct colour and a dog with true collie character, which is first and foremost a loyal and cherished family dog but can also be used well in disciplines such as sheep herding, dog shows, obedience, etc. All the matings are carefully selected, well planned and studied.
As breeders, we are at the forefront of responsible dog ownership and our main goal is to convey the right message to new owners of our dogs to ensure the puppy grows up well-balanced, steadily and in the best possible conditions.
