A big shout out today to a relative "across the pond" triumphing at the world's largest dog show,

A remarkable win for Norvin Joyeux Noel and happy owners Wendy and Keith Threadgold

"Darcy", a granddaughter of our Ch. Horizon Rock Solid and Ch. Kamgaard Kiamesha won her very first Challenge Certificate under breeder-judge Jerry Daly ("Ennafort") of Ireland.


February 29th - March 1st 


Two new specialty wins for Kamgaard Kick Up Your Heels RATO at the Greater Milwaukee Norwegian Elkhound Association over the week-end.  "Skipper" was Winners Dog at both specialties; Saturday under Mr. Richard Miller and Sunday under Mr. Eugene Blake ("Aurora") to add to his point count.  Recently he also attained the AKC title of ATT which is a temperament test with various categories, passing the test with flying colors at the Cudahy Kennel Club under judge Karin Magnuson.

CONGRATULATIONS to Mallory Golladay and Skipper!!

While Skipper was doing his thing in Wisconsin, his niece "Rune" scored big in New Jersey agility winning her final Masters title -- Masters Standard at the Delaware County Kennel Club under judge Dave Hirsch.

CONGRATULATIONS  to Cheryl Cramer and Rune who is now officially

February 11th 

A great night for celebrating a tremendous accomplishment by two very special people we are proud to call friends.

To Chrystal and Paul Clas we raised a toast to their


at the one and only Westminster Kennel Club with the fabulous "Siba" - Ch. Stone Run Afternoon Tea CD.

It couldn't have happened to a nicer and harder working couple or a more deserving, sound and beautiful Poodle.

We are THRILLED for you!!!

One integral component of being a preservation breeder is not only making the best breeding choices using the current crop of available stock, but harvesting and storing semen from outstanding breed "contributors" to use in future generations.  Theriogenology within the canine world is fascinating and when you find the right individuals to work with your breeding dreams and plans, the positive outcomes can be wonderfully rewarding.  

Thanks to the forward thinking of the late Dr. Daniel Burnside of the Quakertown Veterinary Clinic in PA who got us started on this journey over twenty years ago and currently Dr. Eric Hartelius of the Rondout Valley Veterinary Associates in NY in tandem with Dr. Mary Stankovics of Straws To Paws in NJ, we are rejoicing to at long last have puppies which we only dared to dream about.

Using twenty plus year old frozen semen from our top winning and producing

SBIS/UBIS American/Canadian/Bermudian Ch. Windy Cove Norgren Wild Pride ("BS")

to our lovely

SBIS American Grand Ch. Kamgaard Kintyre ("Marnie")

we were blessed in the wee small hours with five uniform and health bitch puppies;

It takes a village but with great thanks to all involved, here's hoping these girls will be ongoing breed contributors as well.  Meanwhile we are just enjoying them and SOOOOO thankful they are here safe and sound!

January 26th 


go out today to Margie Kabala and Edith Finsaadal and their

Kamgaard Klassic Mystic Waters ("Brooke")

at the Chain O Lakes Kennel Club show under Dr. Camille McArdle.

Happy news received today from Christine Tilburg of Maine that she and "Rogue" got mail!  A certificate from the American Kennel Club confirmed that Rogue was the top Preferred Norwegian Elkhound in Agility for 2018.  Apparently these are not awarded until the end of the following year, thus a little "late but great!"


January 12th 

Not exactly the way we would like to start our notes for the New Year, but the inevitable part of having and loving our Elkhounds is having to say good-bye when the time comes.  To Patty and Dale Johnson we send our sympathy on the loss of 13+ year old Kamgaard Kindi's One And Only.  "Kindi" led an incredible life and was one of the first entries in our Everyday Life tab modeling her "doggles."

Rest In Peace Kindi  

January 1st 

Happy New Year to our Elkhound friends around the world!

May your year be one of health, happiness and fulfillment of your dreams.
