Akamai, in the
Hawaiian language, means 'smart,
clever or possessing savoir-faire'.
That is how I truly feel about this
wonderful, endearing and
misunderstood breed; the
They are loving, friendly, outgoing
and they are a trustworthy breed.
I registered 'Akamai' as my kennel
name with the Canadian Kennel Club
in 1999; that same year we became
members of the Rottweiler Club of
became Perm. Reg'd with the Canadian
Kennel Club in January 2010.
So what does that mean? It
means that we have fulfilled the
requirements of the CKC which are
1.) we are registered members in
good standing of the CKC for more
than 10 years and 2.) we have bred 5
or more dogs who have earned CKC
granted titles and 3.) we have NEVER
been subjected to disciplinary
action by the CKC.
Together since 1995, my dogs and I have learned the
ins and outs of the dog world, be it in conformation or obedience.
My dogs enjoy a life of luxury at home with
myself, my partner Jamie, and the loving hands of my 4 children
always patting them, tossing them toys, and now as the kids are
getting older, they are helping with the feeding and general care of
the dogs and the puppies we raise.
always considered my dogs to be my fur-children, so
they have always lived in my home, with my
skin-children. They lay on the couch and on the bed
and they 'Hoover' up all of the crumbs the kids drop
on the floor. Because the dogs live in our home,
our litters will be very limited and carefully
planned out. They will also be raised inside our
busy house where socialization is of prime
My main interest lies with obedience training and trailing and it has
been my focus since I began training with my first dog, a Golden
Retriever named Jessie (below), in 1995. I got hooked. I also got
hooked on the Rottweiler while attending my first set of obedience
classes with Jessie. I knew that was the breed for me, and so the story
I am very
proud to say
that I have

I would like to send out special thanks
for the support and MAJOR amounts of help over the years
from my obedience club, Cal K9, mainly the 2 trainers what
have helped me the most, Jackie Hastie and Pauline Baldwin.
Without them I would be nowhere ......
All of our dogs will be temperament tested and receive their
health clearances along with numerous titles before they are
In 2005 we whelped our first litter using
the 'Akamai' prefix, out of our foundation bitch Jewel. She was
a great start for our kennel, and we now look to moving forward
with new and different lines and seeing how we can do our best
to improve on what we have already started. We breed seldomly,
only when we are ready to take on a new puppy in our home. Thus
we plan out our litters well in advance in the hopes of breeding
the best possible puppies.
We are members of the Canadian Kennel Club and the Rottweiler
Club of Canada and we adhere to the code of ethics of the clubs
with regards to our breeding practices.
