Sibiliani Kennel Porcelaine Hounds
Whilst I always wanted to work with dogs, my life up to some point was rather different. I have had hounds all my life, yet never thought that my dream of having my own pack would come true. My professional life was time consuming, demanding and required lots of travel. Then the day came after many years of a successful career as a lawyer, I decided to slow down and give myself (and my family) the opportunity to have a new life. I limited my professional work to freelancing as a consultant, and started realising my ‘hounds dream’. Today I am happy that I can develop my interest and meet many wonderful people who are also following their dreams; who I can share my hobby and my passion with.
I am still at the beginning of my journey. Our first Porcelaine Hound, Cello, was registered in the Irish Kennel Club in 2017. This is the first ever Porcelaine registered in the IKC. In 2018 we registered our second Porcelaine, Nola. Both of them quickly became champions and grand champions in many countries, passed their working tests and became International Champions under FCI rules. Having our first litter of Porcelaine Hound puppies in 2019 was a marvellous experience, especially as it was only the second ever litter of the Porcelaine breed in the UK (the first one was in 2007). This litter was the first ever litter of Porcelaine Hounds registered in Ireland. Mira, our third Porcelaine was our keeper from the litter born in 2019. A while later three musketeers joined Sibiliani kennel - Lupo, Ringo and Nelson. It gaves us a good base to develop our kennel and had also a significant impact on, still very little population of Porcelaine Hounds in the U.K. With litle steps we are popularising the breed in the U.K. and Ireland, as well as in the other parts of the world including North America nad Australia. Some of our dogs are the real history makers what makes us really proud.
I am incredibly thankful to my family who not only didn’t object, but supported me every step of the way, even when it was - and is - turning their lives up-side-down! Nowadays we are all actively involved in developing our kennel, loving and spoiling our hounds on the Hills of Surrey.
Looking forward for new to come very soon!
