My love for Keeshonden began in 1982 and has flourished since that time. I've handled the breed for myself and others achieving Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show, numerous Specialty Wins, Group Wins, Group Placements & Championships (American, Canadian, Grand & UKC).

At IKON Keeshonden our goal is to produce the best in quality, health, temperament and conformation. When choosing the pairings for our next breeding, which only occurs approximately once every 2-3 years, we do so with the intent of producing top-notch show dogs. Puppies are evaluated and the exceptional show prospects will compete in the conformation ring and continue the IKON line. The remaining puppies are placed in obedience, agility and companion homes to be loved and cherished.

All of my dogs reside with me, in my home, and are considered my family members. I believe nutrition is strongly related to the longevity of my dogs. I keep my numbers low so each dog receives adequate attention. My sole focus is to produce happy, healthy, long-living & sound Keeshonden.

Recognized as an American Kennel Club Breeder of Merit, member of the Keeshond Club of America, member of the Buckeye Keeshond Club, & President of the Great Lakes Keeshond Club
