Thanks for stopping in to learn a little about us!


Ted and I are born and raised Maritimers! I am a registered nurse here in Halifax, NS. I specialize in Oncology.  Ted is self employed, running his own successful tennis academy (HeadStart Tennis Academy) and club (HeadStart Tennis Club) servicing the Halifax area. We recently welcomed our first baby girl as well! 

We are members of the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) and the Rottweiler Club of Canada (RCC). We adhere to the Code of Ethics and Code of Practice of the CKC as well as the Code of Ethics set by the RCC with the goal of being a Gold Breeder within the RCC.

We are starting our breeding program of Rottweilers to help preserve this versatile and beautiful breed. My own experience with the breed starts back to when I was just an infant and my parents had a litter. We had Rottweilers until I was about 12 years old. Fast forward to 2014 when I convinced my husband to research the breed and here we are! A Rottweiler of our own and a tremendous respect and admiration for the breed. You can find information about our foundation female in the "Our Dogs" section.
